Very sturdy, came full assembled. If I had to complain about something it would be the wine rack area gets dusty and is kinda hard to clean but that's just nit-picking. I absolutely love this buffet and how much I can actually fit in it.
I ordered this buffet and I was nervous ordering it online. I've bought everything online for the past 12 years or more, but never had I tried to buy a piece of furniture so expensive online. I was also nervous because delivery was "threshold delivery" at the time and I live in a 4 story apartment building, on the top level. The 2 gentlemen from Yellow Freight actually brought it up to my apartment, unpacked it, screwed on a couple of handles, removed all the packing, and placed it where I wanted it in the room! I didn't ask them for any of that! When they unpacked it, I was breathless. It is the most fine and most beautiful piece I've ever had the pleasure of owning. Now, nearly 2 years later, I literally smile when I glance over at it and I am so proud to have people over. Don't hesitate, this is an excellent buy and a gorgeous heirloom quality piece.
This piece is gorgeous! I couldn't be happier with it. It goes perfectly with my dining room table and chairs. Plus the price was great!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is pretty right on.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's a great piece and good quality for the price.
My wife and I really like this buffet. However, during shipping from China, some of the screws that held the backing in got knocked around. It wasn't much of a problem. I just had to realign them and screw them back in. One thing against this product is that if I knew that it was made in China, I probably would have kept looking for a while.

With the hutch on top, this is an impressive piece of funiture! The shelves are nice and sturdy and deep. You can store a lot of stuff in there. Closures are nice looking and tight. Very happy with it but again warn about checking before accepting because it is too big/heavy to manipulate. And if you order the hutch, put some 'moving men or coasters under it before you add the hutch.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close to picture. Nice colors in woodgrain make it compatible with a lot of other colors/wood.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very happy but this was the second one- the first was refused due to damage. This one I had 'white glove' delivery so that it could be moved out of box and chacked. If you get regular delivery, they just bring the box in the door! Luckily the box was damaged so they were willing to put right back on the truck.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It is one inch longer that described at the base where there is a bump in the woodwork. It did not fit because that bump hit the baseboard heater. Otherwise I would say I was surprised by the quality of the piece - tight, sturdy, practical.
I was pleasantly surprised by the workmanship and the quality of this piece. Now I need to fill the wine storage. Very nice. I am very happy with this piece along with the china cabinet.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exact color depicted in the picture
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. constructed nicely and very heavy
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? perfect, and not oversized if you don't have a big dining area
