Had just moved into a new house with VERY limited kitchen storage and was looking for a buffet to be both decorative and a great storage solution. I found just that! It took some time and patience to find a buffet in my price range that did not have a wine storage area or glass doors...I wanted a storage solution so the ability to hide things was a must. This buffet is made of nice, solid wood and has beautiful coloring - a medium to dark brown with the natural grain showing some - pretty stain. I put it together mostly myself, but needed the assistance of my husband for a couple steps. Took a few hours. I am thrilled with this purchase and woul dbuy it again if I had to. The only thing about it only slightly a negative is the back piece, which is a thin plywood. But the back pieces for this type of furniture are usually cardboard, so it is a step above that and you can't even tell, as it is against the wall. This piece does not at all look like the sort of furniture you put together yourself - it is nice!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect - matches the picture and my table!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very nice!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? There was a limited description and no reviews when I bought it.
I don't understand the complaints about assembly. It was better packaged and organized for assembly than Sauder products. Each grouping of hardware was separately packaged and labeled. No sorting and comparing to the pictures! It is incredibly sturdy. It has a wood back instead of paper and a magnetic closure on the top and bottom of each door. It actually takes a bit of pull to open the doors. And it is beautiful. Heavy as sin too. I not only would recommend it to friends, I did recommend it to my mother!

I wanted to find a modern but unique piece of furniture to go under my flat screen tv in my family room. This is the first piece of furniture you see when you walk in the door so I was looking at similar pieces at designer stores preparing myself to pay at least $1500.00. The problem I was finding is that TV consoles are typically much lower and I wanted this to be at a height that would be acceptable to put a lamp on. When I found this on Overstock, I was "in like" and not "in love" with it but thought for th price I would give it a shot. It arrived in only a matter of days extremely well packaged, no scratches or dents and clear directions. It was a breeze to put together, just make sure you READ THE DIRECTIONS! It is much more beautiful in person, you can see the different colors of brown hues in it. It is extremely heavy and sturdy, inside they give you 2 shelves per side so it will hold a lot of items. It works perfectly as a tv console, the back is however made of wood fiber so it would be easy to cut through if needed. I have received many compliments on it and am so happy I was able to spend the additional money I saved on other items for my house! A MUST BUY if you are looking for a great piece of furniture without the huge price tag!

There are only a few downsides to this lovely piece...here's my short wishlist:
I wish the hinge adjustments allowed me to get closer to perfection...in a linear, modern piece like this, the smallest misalignment is noticeable. I wish the legs were designed to allow better adjustment for uneven floors...you can unscrew them a bit and get close, but I still had to shim, and because the bottom of the leg is so narrow, the shim is visible.
Other than that, we are really satified. If you really USE your furniture like we do, it's hard to beat rubberwood. You may curse its weight while unpacking, assembling, and moving into place, but this thing is built to last.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The image was a little redder than the product, which was a bit disappointing when I opened the box. But it ends up blending in nicely.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice and sturdy, tons of storage
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
I love the piece, it looks just like in the picture. It took a while though for me and a helper to put it together, I am not very good nor enjoy putting furniture together. I am always nervous of screwing it up, but after a few hours it was done. It took me a while to adjust the doors so they a perfect. After all that I do love it and would definitely recommend this purchase to anyone that is looking for a great looking buffet.
I love this buffet! However, getting the doors put on and adjusted was a huge problem. It took more time doing that than it did to put the piece together. But I still love it and ithe inside can accomodate a lot. Well worth the money.
I had seen a similar version at a more expensive store and searched online till I found this. It is exactly what I was looking for and it looks just like the picture. I have gotten a lot of compliments. It is solid and heavy and it took about 3 of us to put the thing together. The adjustable shelves inside were great so I could set some up higher for wine glasses and others lower for platters. I would definitely purchase this again.
I have spent a lot of time searching for a buffet in this style. There were NO others at this price point. While it did require assembly, my husband encountered no difficulty. The wood itself and color are rich and beautiful. I am thrilled.
This was a wonderful surprise it was much more substanial than I thought is would be. Assembly took a while but was easy following the instructions. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. I needed to free up some cupboard space in my kitchen so I moved all my dinnerware and glassware into this. I love it!
Are the cabinet knobs placements holes pre-drilled? Are you able to use other hardware and placed in a different location on the buffet doors?snow27 on Jun 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The cabinet holes are pre-drilled and other hardware can be used in the same location.peace73 on Jun 3, 2013
Yes they are predrilled and yes, you can use other hardware, but not in another location, unless you don't mind the empty predrilled holes showing.madelgordo on Jul 13, 2013
I put on a different hardware with no problem.grayry on Sep 22, 2013
