You will appreciate the way this cocoa occasional table delivers elegance to any room that you put it in. The reverse pyramid design gives you plenty of room to showcase artwork and important items. It can also be paired with a variety of furniture....more
I purchased this for the foyer (entrance) of my home. I was concerned, based on the description that it would have a red or cherry-like finish. I was happy that it didn't. It is truly an espresso, dark brown-black color. The wood grain markings are very deep which will help to hide scratches and makes it look more expensive. The back is completely unfinished, so it must be placed in a location where it is backed by a wall (like in the picture). It is made of light-weight ply-board (similar to the quality of Ikea furniture). If guests are not going to touch this and you place quality decorative items on it, you can prevent it from looking cheap and disguise it as being more expensive. Overall I like it and will keep it.
This is an attractive piece and is a very good buy for the price. However I do want to make other buyers aware of some small caveats:
It was very difficult to put together - the instructions actually tell you to have another person on hand, and to literally plan on blocking out an entire day, which struck me as odd considering it's a short depth, short length, simple side table. The instructions were right - almost - it did take two of us 2 hours to put together )and we're both pretty handy). It's expected, in a way, though - you're paying a very low price for a modular piece of furniture - the cost has to give on something...time is what it gives on. After a semi-frustrating process, it was ready to go. Albeit it was slightly lopsided (those predrilled holes are never quite right) but it's not noticeable really at all, and the table looks very smart and expensive once it's put together and adorned with a lamp and some decorative items.
The color is espresso wood - dark with a low sheen - similar to the photo. While the piece did come with a few nicks in the finish (again, I'd be more upset if this were a $600 table), after a few strokes with a wood pen in the same color, you can't even tell.
We've gotten remarks about how different and unique this table is, and how rich it looks. It's a VERY good purchase. You honestly could not do better with such a low/reasonablel price. The design and shape are extremely nice looking and the table is a great compliment to our home!!! You won't be disappointed with the final result!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? espresso wood - appeared just as i thought it would
Please tell us about the quality of the product. it doesn't sit exactly straight - off by just a tad. not noticeable though, really. otherwise. also pieces came slightly nicked with the finish scratched off. however, after using wood pen it's not noticeable at all and is still a good table for the money.

This table makes my accent wall look AWESOME! It is exactly what I wanted. There are so many things you can do with it. Right now I have a candle set on top and I am looking to place a mirror above it like in the picture. It's very sturdy. The assembly was a little challenging. I suggest having two sets of hands because of the way it is shaped. :D

As always, fast shipping. I put it together by myself with no problems. Took less than an hour. I had everything I needed, no misaligned parts. I really have nothing bad to say about this piece. It is a solid piece of furniture and looks great too. It was a little taller than I expected so I didn't use it where I intended to but it is a very versatile piece and I easily found another spot for it. I actually made a wine rack out of it. I bought some of those metal hangers for the wine glasses and screwed them under the top piece. I found a small wooden wine holder/rack that matched perfectly from Goodwill and set it in the bottom and now I have a wine rack. It really looks cool. People think I bought it like that. Once again, I am pleased with my purchase from Overstock.com.

The photos of this item appear to show two different tables. The photo in the middle looks as if the top is longer than in the other two photos. Is that the wrong picture in the middle?aedn on Nov 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm sorry I think it just looks different because of the angle of the picture.

This item contains wood and MDF. MDF does not contain knots or rings, making it more uniform than natural woods during cutting and in service. Regular pledge fir wood cleans great, overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 2, 2013
