The table components were not too heavy to handle and were easy to assemble (I am a 60 year old female). The workmanship is crude in some spots, e.g. the metal finish of the table top was "wavy" on some of the corner areas and the faux copper edging missing in a couple of spots--I chose to view these as more shabby chic qualities than as defects (considering the relatively inexpensive price of the table). I love the glass table top since it enables me to see the underlying diamond bakhtiari rug (another Overstock.com purchase) on which the table rests. I've had the table for several weeks and enjoy its design contribution to my living room.
Upon opening the parts you take a deep breath and think "this doesn't look so bad"... and it is down hill from there. The worst part is that the iron/metal is not symetrical. Therefore, no matter how much effort you put into assemeling it perfectly the legs aren't even and the thing teeters back and forth. They do include 4 leveling feet, but they should have made them about 12" long if they are to level that piece of junk. I ended up almost pulling my back out trying to bend and straighten the metal enough so that the table would rest on all four feet. I finally did bend and pull enough to get it close enough for the leveling feet to do their job and then realized that the female end of the threading for the feet was cross threaded and the feet couldn't be used. I would highly recommend passing on this tempting and nice looking (in the photo) piece.
The table came in vary fast, and it looks just like the picture, very good looking in my living room. The glass is very good quality, thicker and better than what I have seen in all the mid to upper grade furniture stores. It is easy to set up, I did myself in half hour. Overall the quality, price and looking is better than all the one I have looked around in the furniture stores. I like it a lot!
Thanks Over Stock!
Ok quality for price. Metal is not heavy quality and is a bit tinny. In fact, my top piece arrived with a couple dings in it that aren't too noticeable. Glass top is more substantial. Finish is matte black with muted gold edging. Note that the you must level the table using screw-in feet. I have it on a sisal rug & it works fine, but a perfectly flat service could mean you were constantly adjusting the feet.
i thought these looked pretty good online but when i opened the box, I hated it. the metal is heavy but is black with faky "copper" accents on all sides. it looks totally cheap and tacky. it was packaged well. i did not even get it built completely, i hated it so much i just stopped and put it back in the box for return shipment. which is costing me $@#.
We came home to find the glass shattered for no apparent reason. We have not abused the product in any way.
At least it broke into safety fragments, but what a mess and what a disappointment.
Not sure what we should do with the matching end table.
We were looking for a modernish coffee table for use in our finished basement as part of an additional TV watching space. The floor is tiled and the color scheme is black/taupe. This table is great as a middle point between two sofas. It is the perfect height and the glass is recessed so no sharp corners, as well as being sturdy enough to hold drinks/snack dishes. The finish is a distressed black-goldish tone which goes with other metal or wood finishes and is not harsh. It is a unique, sleek design which is casual enough for our basement but could also be suited to our living or family rooms--depending on how it is accessorized. The assembly was not difficult for my handy husband. The finished table looks high-end but the price was not!
The table looks cute, pretty much as it looks in the photo.
The problem comes with the faulty craftsmanship. For example, on the bottom of the coffee table, there is a 1/2 inch gap where the bars are connected because they didn't weld the piece correctly. (You'd understand if you saw it, and I am not one of those handy type people, yet it's pretty obvious.) My brother-in-law, who IS very handy spotted several inconsistencies in the workmanship. They're not super noticeable, but ARE noticeable. So...basically you're going to get a flawed, but functional, and decent looking coffee table. This is pretty much what a LOT of reviewers on here have surmised about this coffee table.
That all said, it is fine for my small livingroom in my rented townhouse with a smaller sized living room. As many others have stated on these reviews, it's fine until I'm ready to purchase investment furniture. It works with my brown leather couch. Haven't put together the coordinating end tables and will review that item soon.
