We are remodeling our main level and purchased this piece hoping the color would match up...it looks terrific! The heaviness and sturdiness of this buffet is really nice and makes it feel very high quality. The only negatives I have is that when it was delivered and we opened the boxes, there was a strong smell of "wood stain". It is still prevalent after about a week but I am hoping that will subside (or I am just getting used to it)! They missed a screw in the assembly materials but that was no big deal. I would also like to see better quality cabinet door knobs...these look cheap and don't match the quality of the piece itself. I plan to change those out...but otherwise this buffet rocks and I would recommend to anyone!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Awesome!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy and good quality for the price
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
This is a sturdy, stylish buffet. Very clean minimalist lines - think mid century modern with a driftwood color. Smooth, satin finish. Mine arrived in three boxes, everything was in perfect condition. The hardware was all there and was easy to find, the instructions were clear, and all the holes and fittings were perfectly accurate.
It's heavy, I put it together myself but I've built a lot of furniture. If you're a beginner or a small person you may want to get a friend to help. Once built, it's solid. The doors hang perfectly straight with only minor adjustments (the hinges are the adjustable european type, which is nice).
I'm thrilled with this, it's better than I expected and I can't believe it shipped for free!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's very close to the photo, like a driftwood gray with a light cool brown undertone.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Went together easily, well built, well packaged, heavy solid wood with veneer.

I received this buffet one week after I placed the order, and it came in 3 boxes. Everything was in perfect condition, and there were extras for all of the screws (except for the ones to attach the back--those were a few short, but it didn't matter.) I set aside an entire Saturday afternoon to put it together after reading it took 8 hours to assemble. It is time consuming, but it took me about 3 hours total. I strongly, STRONGLY recommend that you only purchase this product if you have access to an electric/cordless screwdriver. If I only had a manual screwdriver, I'm sure I would still be working on it, instead of drinking a glass of wine right now! The piece looks beautiful, and I think the color is very true to the photos on the website. It's not solid gray; like other reviewers have said, it's grayish with brown undertones. I got it to match a vintage table (made of Wormy Chestnut wood, if that helps you to picture the tone) and it matches extremely well. As for the odor issues that others reported: I did smell the wood stain/"new furniture smell" when I unpacked all of the boxes, but there was no lingering odor afterwards (and I'm very sensitive to strong scents, so I was glad that it wasn't as noticeable for my buffet as it was, unfortunately, for others.) Maybe they have corrected something with the finish? This is a very attractive, sturdy, substantial piece and the style and finish are fantastic. The quality is good and it looks expensive, not cheap at all. Very satisfied!
beautiful and substantial piece of furniture. assembly was simple yet time consuming. definitely needs door pulls with more character. the pulls that are on it make it look 'ikea.' gorgeous, unique wood tone. packaged + shipped safely in 5 boxes. using as tv console. love it!
I love this buffet! It was fairly easy to put together, although I did need some help with adjusting the hinges. The color is beautiful and it looks amazing in my newly built home. This piece is timeless, and I could easily move it to several other areas of my house. I had looked extensively for a buffet without drawers that fit my style. This one is perfect. I am using it in my kids' play area to keep craft supplies, paper, etc in and the shelving is perfect for that. The shipping was extremely fast. Normally when I get things shipped to Canada from the US, shipping takes at least a month. This arrived within 2 weeks. Very impressed! Thank you!
After years as satisfied Overstock shoppers, without a doubt this has been our worst, most disappointing purchase. First, the top of the buffet arrived scratched and gouged. Overstock promptly sent a new top, which was fine and attached without issue. The room in which the buffet would be used was under construction, so we didn't immediately attach the doors. A month or so later, the buffet was finally put in place, the doors ready to be installed. We were crushed to find the doors will not attach properly. On the left side, the doors line up flush with the side panel. On the right side, the doors are inset from the side panel and overlap in the front so they will not close. Of course, because we didn't complete the assembly right away, it's now too late to contact Overstock for new doors, or an entirely new piece, or whatever it would take to make this thing work. So it sits as an expensive eye sore in our family room until we can figure out some kind of modification. We just gutted and installed a brand new kitchen, so this is not an issue of ineptitude on our part. The buffet we received has a serious design flaw. We learned two valuable lessons from this experience: first, always fully assemble any purchases within the 30 day return time frame; second, think long and hard before ever ordering furniture from Overstock again.
This has been a mess from the beginning. I ordered this cabinet, and it arrived in three boxes. I hired a guy to come out and put it together for me. After getting it all opened up and spread out everywhere, he told me there were some very key pieces missing (actual panels). So I called Overstock, who was very helpful and they contacted the warehouse and had an additional box sent out supposedly with the missing parts. Another box arrived, and I had the guy back out to put it together. After beginning to assemble it, he said the parts they had sent were not to this piece of furniture and showed me where it didn't fit together and was clearly not the correct part. So I boxed it all back up and returned it to OS. They sent me a whole new cabinet which arrived in three boxes. This time, being tired of paying someone to come over and not be able to do anything, I had a friend of mine who is a mechanical engineer and has put together a bunch of stuff like this over the years, come over and help me put it together. After three hours, we finally gave up. The instructions were awful, which you expect with something like this, but they seemed extra bad. Some of the parts had changed from when the directions were printed, so it was hard to figure out what parts they were referring to. Additionally, places where holes should have been predrilled were not there. We drilled our own holes and tried really hard to make it all work. Once we finally put the front doors on, using the predrilled holes that were there, they didn't fit correctly. There were large gaps around the top and side edges, even though the one edge where the hinges were was flush and drilled into the provided holes. It was clear this was just a poorly designed, very low quality product in terms of structure. I was really disappointed because I liked the veneer/color of the cabinet and it would have fit perfectly for the space and décor. I have called Overstock and they are sending someone out to pick it up, and are paying the shipping fees, which is very nice. Hopefully there is no issues with getting a full refund. While there were many problems with getting the product shipped to me correctly and with the quality and design of the product itself, I must say that so far Overstock has been very response and helpful in resolving each situation as it has arisen. So back to looking for a cabinet. :-(
This piece is exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't find a buffet under $*** anywhere that wasn't really ugly. I'm going to switch out the door handles b/c the ones that came with it are really junky looking. My handyman put it together for me so I have no idea how difficult it was to do but he had trouble aligning the doors and from fall away you can see they are a little off. This normally bothers me but i'm going to let it slide b/c the price was right and at the end of the day... you get what you pay for.
Thank you for shopping with us karengo. The pictures show a very similar stain. They are produced by two different companies and there would be no guarantee about if they match exactly. I am sorry the answer can't be more exact. Have a good day.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 30, 2013
One review states that this is not gray. What color is it? Is there anyway to get a sample of the color?vettim on Mar 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The best way to determine the color is to enlarge the pictures as much as possible. This picture does show grey, but it definitely also shows brown tones along with the grey. We hope this helps, it really is a lovely piece.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 1, 2013
