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 think this is a very nice piece for the price! It was a bit time consuming to put it together, and not so easy to get the doors lined up but once all was done we are very pleased! I bought it to put in my kitchen with extra dishes because I have floating shelves and needed extra storage but wouldn't recommend putting dishes in it. It has a very strong varnish odor that still has not gone away after a few months, so this would be better as a media cabinet or in a space where you aren't storing dishes you use every day!
This buffet is not only beautiful and solid, but if you are tight on storage space for all your china and stemware, then this buffet is an excellent solution. It went together easily enough. Follow the instructions carefully. If you have experience using adjustable hinges, then it may go together easier for you. I found it challenging to get the doors lined up perfectly. I eventually got it. Just remember, that if they don't line up perfectly, its not a defect of the buffet, you just need to adjust the hinges appropriately. The color is beautiful. This is asolid and heavy. You should definitely have 2 people to assemble. I love this buffet, and wish I had it years ago.
I was looking for a buffet to help with storage in a small kitchen/dining space. This piece was that and then some, both functional and beautiful with plenty of space to store everthing large & small. The rubber wood is stunning and gives this piece a very expensive modern look . I looked for over a year in fine dept. Stores for similar pieces but the prices were outrageous, Overstock had this piece so well priced I couldn't pass this by. You will need two people to assemble, but as long as you use a power drill this should be fairly easy to put together. Start to finish it took 2 hours. Highly recommend, don't think twice if you are considering.
Thank you for shopping with us markdon. This is manufactured in Malaysia. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 29, 2014

I am assembling the product and have mixed up hinges H and hinges K. Is there a distinct difference between these? And if so, how can I tell?brug0049 on Jan 8, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us brug0049. Put the two hinges side by side, the hinge that is the tallest is H. So when I looked and placed them side by side that was the obvious difference and there did not appear to be any other difference. If I can help with anything else please let me know.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 9, 2014
1. how tall are the shelves? I don't mean the height of the whole buffet but the spacing between the shelves which dictate the height of the objects that can be put in there.
2. is it possible to stain the wood to make it appear darker? most of my furniture are very dark brown/espresso.dezmondi on Dec 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with dezmondi. The shelves are adjustable. The interior dimensions are: 29.3 inches high x 29.1 inches wide x 17.9 inches deep. You can sand and refinish the buffet. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 30, 2013

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
