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!

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 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!
I bought this buffet to use as an entertainment center, and it has plenty of space for storage. It took this woman almost 8 hours to assemble this very solid piece of furniture, as well as replace the small knobs with high-quality brushed stainless door pulls that really "up" the mid-century look.
Assembly directions were pretty straight-forward, aside from confusingly similar door hinges that made hanging the doors difficult to differentiate sides.
The only thing that keeps me from really raving about this piece is the fact that I really wanted a GREY unit, and, as another reviewer stated, this is definitely a brown piece a very subtle grey wash.
Arrived timely with all the right pieces. I hired someone to put it together and it did take him a while, but the end result is beautiful. The wood looked very brown right out of the boxes, but once it went together, the gray really comes out. Looks perfect with my gray leather dining room chairs.
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!
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.
After thinking about purchasing this buffet for awhile, I'm so glad I finally did. It is a nice solid piece of furniture with clean, simple lines and it looks more expensive than the cost. It was the perfect fit for our newly redecorated living room that is blue and grey colors (including the cozy silver shag rug from Overstock, which is awesome) - it looks updated and modern. The wood is kind of soft but it's all solid wood (except the back) - I prefer that over particleboard and veneer at this price. And it's delivered right to your door!
When I opened the first box, my initial thought was "this is brown!" but once it is all put together the overall effect and color is brown with a subtle grey-toned color wash over it which I think the color accurately depicts. The brown/grey was what I expected so I am pleased with the color and like that it's different from typical wood colors or stains. Assembly was pretty typical for flat-pack furniture (to give credit where it's due, my husband always makes it look easy), directions were clear and everything was labeled. Very happy with this buffet!

The product was heavy so I am sure if we put it together it would have been very sturdy but I was very disappointed when I opened the first box and the buffet was brown. It is NOWHERE near charcoal grey.

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
