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!
The buffet table arrived in 3 boxes and it took us about 3 hrs to build. i love how sturdy it is and how much room you have inside to place all your china and glasses. I wish it had more of a brown hue to it rather than grey. It's def more grey than anything. Still looks great but if you want to match other brown pieces, you may have trouble with that. I am going to change the knobs bc these are small black ones that look cheap. Overall, the piece looks beautiful and expensive so changing the knobs will make it look even better. be sure to use a screwdriver for all assembly. we got tired and used a drill at the end and we stripped one of the back screws, oops. thankfully its in the back and inside, so you could barely see it.
The only reason I'm giving this four stars instead of five is that my first shipment came with the boxes all beat up and, unfortunately, dents and scuff marks on some of the pieces. Overstock promptly sent an entire new one which (while the boxes looked shabby again) the pieces were not damaged.
My husband assembled it in approximately 2.5 hours - if you aren't good at building things, however, this may be frustrating. He mixed up the screws on the hinges/door panel but was able to fix the issue without much of a problem.
As for the quality and style, it matches the Emmerson reclaimed wood dining table I purchased from a different retailer perfectly so I am very content. It has a fairly smooth finish with very little actual "distressing". The color is a warm grey - very neutral and perfect for my needs. The style is modern and for what it cost, the quality is more than adequate.
The cabinet was fine but the assembly is extremely time consuming.
My main issue with this purchase is that 2 of the panels were chipped. Since both face the back of the unit, I won't make a claim. That said, shipping might be improved.

There are 4 shelves and they all have multiple height options.smith1959 on Jul 16, 2014
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
