I love this island. It's excellent quality and nearly identical to a similar Crate & Barrel version that costs twice as much. It looks perfect in our kitchen. The service and delivery however was a bit of a hassle. First, the table comes in two boxes, the top and bottom. We received the first box one night, and the second the next night. When we received the marble countertop the next night, it was cracked. I called Overstock and they took note saying they would look into it. I received a message the next day saying that they are still looking into it and would take 2 days to get back to me. The next night a replacement top arrived, and the following day I received a message from Overstock saying that there were no more marble tops available and that they would be willing to charge me only half for the damaged top. Clearly a disconnect between Overstock and the table supplier, but overall very happy with the table.

I received this product in less than a week. It came in two boxes. I put the base together and when I opened the box for the marble top it was cracked! I should have checked right from the start because the box was beat up. I went online with overstock and they said they would contact the warehouse and send another top. I was concerned that I would have to ship back the old one because it was so heavy and I pretty much demolished the box when I opened it. Didn't have to to that and I received the replacement a few days later. It looks great in my kitchen and I'm a happy customer.

I am very impressed by this kitchen island. It had been very well packed prior to shipping and arrived in perfect condition. The size is substantial and it's extremely well-made. It has an industrial look, which I love. The marble top is quite nice. Overall, this kitchen island is terrific and I highly recommend it.

The Orleans kitchen island with the Marble top is stunning in my kitchen and provides the work surface I was lacking in my smallish kitchen. It comes in two shipping crates and the top sighs about 150 lbs. I love love love the way it looks and performs. This thing is heavy heavy and I had to put it together - maybe not a good idea if you live alone - get someone to help put it together and flip it over. Once upright - the heaviness is an asset. I couldn;t be happier and worth every cent i paid for it.
Wow this is a fantastic kitchen island. I hemmed and hawed before ordering because I was petrified that the marble top would arrive damaged but it was in perfect condition. This is extremely heavy. Two of us had trouble moving it into the kitchen but the end result is that it is a solid and sturdy piece. I assembled it by myself which took about two hours. It would have been a little easier with two people but only when placing the shelves. The base of brushed metal matches my drawer pulls so it looks like it was meant to be there. I have placed a cutting board on top to avoid stains and cuts. It will be great for rolling out dough. Perfect size. We already love just hanging out around it. Highly recommended! So glad i got it.
Read the reviews on line. The big complaints is that the top shows up cracked. Mine showed up in tact upon receipt. Only is was that the top and bottom pieces ship separately. I was told both would arrive by a Friday. I got one shipment on Friday, the other didn't arrive til the following Tuesday (enabling not to be able to use it with our family in town that weekend). Other than that, we love this island. Storage is great, it is sturdy, looks sleek, easy to move, if need be. I would buy this again easily. This island is highly recommended for a light look, and those in need of extra storage.
Upon receiving this we found that the marble was cracked in 3 places and it was missing screws to adhere the marble. In contacting the company we were told that it was the "natural beauty". When we contacted Overstocks they immediately sent out an entirely new one, not just the marble. It has a big chip and a repaired crack. We are giving up and just keeping it. Overstock was kind, but we are just done with it!
For some time, I had been looking at a similar marble top table in a well-known home furnishings chain store. The price is about 3 times the price of this table. When the time came to buy the table, however, the on-line reviews were disappointing. I really loved the table and it was perfect for my new kitchen so I started looking elsewhere. I found the Orleans Island at an amazing price. Actually, I thought it could not be as nice as the other island/table for 1/3 the price but it is a fabulous piece. I store my mixer, food processor, cutting boards, kitchen linens, and much more in the various compartments. I use the top for food prep and for serving and dining. This is one of the most versatile pieces I have ever owned. I have had it for 3 months and use it constantly. It looks great and everyone remarks how nice it is. I am thrilled with this purchase.
This a great looking, sturdy piece of furniture. I also love how it blends in with my kitchen without taking over the style of the kitchen like so may free standing islands do.The openness of the product also gives you plenty of options on how to personalize your kitchen. I used distressed wooden containers on the top two shelves for onions, garlic, potatoes etc. and an antique dough bowl on the bottom.
This piece is perfect for my white condo kitchen. I needed work and storage space and this provides both. Easy to assemble, I only needed help getting marble top out of box, and putting the assembled piece upright. The only downside is if you inspect closely, some of the soldering is not perfect, but the table over all great. I also think the price is a little steep, but ordered because it is the size and style I need after searching all over the Internet. I would recommend!!!
I ordered this to use in my new laundry room as a folding table. It is really sturdy and looks great. I was able to put the base together but the marble top was too heavy for me to lift so I had handy man do the top. Works perfect for what I wanted!
