I recently bought a TV stand for my father because he moved into a new home around new years. He's in front of the TV almost half the day. Out of a panick almost, I found this piece online. Everything came in solid wood construction. It was a bit of heavy lifting for me but I like it sturdy and the color also matches well with the coffee table and surrounding decor. All in all a great buy!

It is hard to assemble this TV stand with unclear instructions. Also the quality of this furniture is bad. The edge of one door is not even and can't be closed well.

The piece fit perfectly into our home after the 2 hour process of trying to put it together. The directions aren't very clear as to which piece goes where and we had to take it apart a few times to get it right. The aggravation was worth it though because it really like how it turned out and you can't ever beat the price of Overstock. We don't have kids yet so I don't know how durable it will be but so far so good.

My second order from Overstock and I am very pleased with the prompt delivery. This item is solid wood and was quite easy to assemble and I am a 50+ year old woman. I think the people who complain about assembly just have no natural instinct for putting anything together and should simply ask someone else to do it for them. Everything was beautifully aligned. All pieces arrived well-protected and intact. Of course one needs to be careful when removing the parts from packaging and assembling them because they will scratch easily. If you are assembling and the holes are not aligned then turn the piece around or switch it to the other side. Do not over-tighten screws. The quality of the lock-pins is inferior so one needs to be careful with those. I was very disappointed that this piece is sold in only this color. It is beautiful but I think it would be much more popular if it was offered in more colors for persons who want to match to established pieces. I think there would be fewer complaints and returns if the manufacturer would place stickers on each panel to show what aligns to front. Overall, an excellent purchase!
I purchased the Normandy Tobacco TV media stand, console table and coffee table all from overstock.com. The product arrived very quickly and all of the products were in great condition. I had no issues assembling the product. Although it took some time to do, it was very rewarding to finish it myself. The only thing I would say is be careful with the lock pins as they snap easily. The quality of the product is amazing. I did not expect to get this furniture and keep it for many years. I am using it for an apartment, but these products will definitely be coming with me when I get a house. I will recommend this product to any one who wants a great product at an affordable price. I have recommended overstock.com to numerous people and I have made many purchases over the past few months. I am very pleased with everything.

Very happy with this TV stand. Exactly what I wanted and dressed it up with new knobs from *****. Perfect size for a smaller living room. It is slightly darker than it is in the photo but that was okay with me! Very happy I purchased this.
After months of searching for a specific sized media stand, this one fit the bill AND it's solid wood!! The color and style is beautiful. The directions are a tad difficult to understand as far as figuring out which way each piece needs to be attached, but as long as you plan ahead it should be a breeze. The only reason I didn't give this piece 5 stars was because one of the doors was not square which prevents it from closing, but I plan on sanding and staining the top of the door to make it work. And there was a problem with shipping. But overall, I'm happy with my purchase!
I was very disappointed in this TV center. The color and design were very nice but after multiple attempts to assemble it I returned it. The instructions were very to follow. The pre drilled holes did not match and they were not drilled well enough to make the pieces fit. It was even a lot of work to put it back in the box for return.
I bought this piece because it goes with the 3 Normandy Tobacco Brown End Tables that I'd purchased. I wanted everything in our den to match. Like the end tables, this piece is shorter than I'd anticipated. However, in this case, it actually works out perfectly for our TV viewing. It's well made, too. I had no trouble putting it together. It definitely stores more than you think it would.
I like this stand very much. Looks good and seems to hold up to kids. However it was missing the back piece when I opened it. The instruction book was thrown away and I was hoping someone who also owns this stand could tell me the item number or letter for the back piece so they can order me a replacement piece!
The cabinet is a disappointment. It is much darker(almost black)than pictured and doesn't match my other furniture. Be sure to check the measurements as it is a small cabinet and not as large as the picture makes it appear. Also, the doors do not fit properly and the finish on the doors especially is very poor. Places where stain is missing. I should have re-packaged it all up and sent it back but did not want the hassle with the item being very heavy. At least it's in my basement, out of site! Did not receive a notice that it had shipped until 2 days after it had been delivered. Not worth the money it cost!
Great value for a real wood piece of furniture. The color is very dark, darker than I expected and it didn't match my other dark wood furniture, which is OK because I plan on buying the other living room pieces in this collection, one piece at a time! Even though assembly was required, I put this together by myself in about 2 hours.
Very nice, sturdy wood, good quality. Took about hour and half to put together, instructions were not too bad to figure out. Love the color of the stain, the center and side shelves are adjustable. Center shelves was wide and deep enough to fit our electronics.
