The armoire is nice quality for the money. Fairly easy to assemble. Very attractive finish and fit. All the important parts were included except for the correct backing panels. Panels included were too short to cover the entire back of cabinet. This affected the rigidity (wobble) of the unit. I stiffened it with materials I had on hand and was satisfied with the results. I am not sure if the packages were packed wrong or if the panels were designed that way. I would buy this brand again.
I am very pleased with the Armoire I purchased. It is an attractive and solid piece of furniture. I would recommend this item to anyone who had knowledge of carpentry or was at the very least a good handy man. I was lucky to have someone to put the item together. The knobs appear to be polished nickle. One of the shelves was defective when the piece arrived but one e mail to the company and the shelf was replaced in a matter of days, no questions asked. When I see armoires for thousands of dollars I am greatful for a company that makes good, sturdy furniture that many people could afford. There is ample room for all of the items I need to put in it and a flat screen tv would fit quite easily. The literature that came with the item states that the shelves will hold a TV. I haven't tried that yet, but I am looking forward to getting a flat screen tv and putting it in the armoire. Over all I am very happy with the order. As stated earlier, you do need knowledge of some carpentry or know someone who does. Maybe you have someone who owes you a big favor.
This piece looks great in my kitchen and is utilized as a coat closet by the door. The biggest problem I had was that the screws stripped very easily and I had to remove a couple with pliers...luckily they sent plenty of spares! The drawer on the bottom is hard to close due to the last screw stripping when I put in the rails and it catches on it!
It wasn't complicated to assemble but it takes time to do it right. I feel for the price I paid and the quality of this piece of furniture that it is a bargain. Don't expect to get a solid wood piece of furniture for $250 because it is made of particle board but it is good quality, durable and looks nice. I only had an issue with the drawer sides being warped and I was missing the removable shelf but I sent a quick email to the company and they sent the replacment pieces a week later. Quick company response even the week before Christmas. If your looking for a cheap, affordable armoire then this will be a great buy for you. But if your looking for a solid wood armoire then you'll want to go to a furniture store and spend $800-1500.
The instructions are pretty vague and you have to be pretty handy to put it together but it's worth it, and it's a great product for the money. I was able to get a lot more stuff in it than I thought! It looks very nice for costing so little
This armoire is ok. I was expecting a little higher quality, but for a put together piece I quess I can't expect much. It is a little smaller than I thought, if you are using this for a TV, only a small one will fit. It is a little wobbly, even after attaching the back cover. I would have liked it more if it was more stable. It is also not as tall as I thought either, if you have a higher bed or a bed with a footboard, and you use this for a TV, it may be too low for you to see it. On a positive note, you could buy a worse piece. It is not the worst "assemble yourself furniture" I ever bought. It was relativally easy to assemble and the color is decent.
The item is fairly easy to put together and all of the pieces were there. Page two of the directions were not included but customer service emailed them to me immediately, so it worked out well. A few of the holes were not exactly aligned so the drawers aren't as smooth as I would like. Overall,however, it is a good value for the money.
Not the best quality but it gets the job done. And you can't beat the shipping price here. It didn't come with all the parts though. Received "replacement" parts in the wrong color. Still waiting for more "replacements" to finish putting it together. That part is slooow, about 2 weeks. I get the feeling this happens often, too.
I liked the sonoma set. It was good for what I paid for it. The only thing I have to complain about is the dimensions listed where for the outside of the piece(basically the very top of the piece is the largest dimension and everything else is about 1 1/2 inch smaller) so I could not fit by tv in it.
