Coffee table is very sturdy and looks great. Noticed the other day that ours has a crack on the side (no kids and no wild behavior in our house, so can't imagine that we caused it). Was labor intensive to put together so I have no plans to try to return and then reassemble a replacement. Would recommend this coffee table, but caution you to examine all parts to make sure that they were not damaged during shipping. Overall, still happy with it.
this table is beautiful once it is assembled. the drawers glide smoothly and the color is very pretty. it is a sturdy piece of furniture. the directions are easy to read and all the parts are clearly labeled. the assembly, however is a major task. be sure to have another person available to help.
This is a put together table that is very very well made. I was skeptical that ordering this and having it delivered would be smart. Knowing my husband would have to put it together and hoping it would be well made. It was not that hard to put together and it is very very well made. Very heavy, nothing like something from Target!
Assembled in just over two hours. Had a little trouble lining up the pins and dowels when setting the top on the frame. I ended up laying the top. face down on the floor and setting the frame on it. Turned out great!! Everything lined up and looks great! Great value for the money. Thank you, Overstock.com!!

This coffee table is insanely heavy...and because of that, was even more difficult to assemble. Lots of parts, pretty difficulty to put together--but the instructions are excellent. I usually put stuff together pretty quickly, but I needed to space it out over two days. A total of about 3 or 4 hours went into putting it together for me, but again, it was very heavy (I'm pretty small). All that said...WOW. What an incredibly sturdy piece. Very high quality wood. I love, love, love it!
I bought this coffee table along with two side tables and the console table to replace some worn living room furniture. These pieces are made of SOLID wood and are beautifully finished. The drawers are all suspended, making them easy to open and close. The style is understated and works with our otherwise eclectic collection of antiques and other styles. I wouldn't describe the color as cherry: it's much darker than that but still warm in tone. Assembly was fairly straightforward and instructions were clear, but be sure to read them carefully. I had to partially disassemble the first piece I put together because I put one piece in backwards. Buyers should not that these pieces are very heavy, the coffee table being in the neighborhood of 80 pounds assembled! I'm extremely happy with this table and its matching items.
Solid wood construction throughout as stated and heavy. However one of the drawer faces were poorly manufactured. Of the 6 table of the three varieties in the line, 3 or the 6 had some type of defect. Overstock.com customer service sent out either a complete table to replace the one with the defective part or the defective part itself on all occasions (without any argument), so they definitely take care of their customers. The supplied hardward contains extra parts which comes in handy especially due to the only fair grade that I would give the hardware in general. The assembly process is pretty straightforward, but does take a bit of time. The table themselves do look very nice in my livingroom. I did however replace the drawer pulls with my own selection. Due to the number of tables with bad parts involved (3 out of 6) I would not recommend this product.
This is a very heavy and substantial coffee table. A friend who can put anything together put it together and it took about an hour and a half. I had read many of the reviews and one suggested that at the end to put it all together with the top on the bottom. That is the easiest way to assemble it after you have done the rest. Another reviewer said it is more walnut than cherry and she was right, although it has enough cherry that it looks good with it and does not clash. Love it. I had tempered glass cut to put on top to keep from scratching and would not recommend plexiglass which will evidentially scratch as well. Great looking piece of furniture to keep for years. Highly recommend.
I was very excited to get this table and immediately got to work putting it together when it arrived. I then began to find that pieces didn't fit we'll together and screws were breaking in half. I continued on in the hopes that it would all work out. Naturally I got it all together but none of the drawers slide all the way in like pictured and just today one the doors fell off. I honestly would love to return it but the hassle of returning a full piece of furniture seems like it would be ridiculous. If all of pieces had fit together as indicated or the screws been of a better quality I would have very much enjoyed this table
Can"t beat this table for the price! Looks really nice and is made of heavy wood. Prepare to spend some time putting it together though. Its not "some assembly required".....it's "all assembly required"! Look very carefully at the instructions. The illustrations are precise and will help, especially with the drawer glide positioning. You will need two people at times. Drawers take two people to insert into table....otherwise theycan get off the mark and the glides can come apart trying to get the drawer back out to re-align. Glides work great and the drawers fully extent. Packaged well to prevent damage. Very happy with the table and would highly recommend.
I LOVE this coffee table and lamp tables! That's a BIG deal because I have high expectations and am very particular about my furniture. This set looks like it came from an expensive furniture store. The styling is unique and the furniture itself is thick, solid wood. The bottom of the drawers are a cheaper wood but that is the only thing that could be improved on this furniture. The drawers are shallow, but I put my remotes, books, and other things in them so they work for me. I've never bought furniture on the Internet and was afraid to do so. After looking in all of the local furniture stores and not finding anything that I liked, I decided to take the chance. I read All of the reviews which were very helpful. The assembly tips from other purchasers saved me some time and frustration. The furniture came quickly and was packaged very tightly and with lots of styrofoam so it would not be damaged. The assembly of all pieces is quit time consuming, but as long as you take it 1 step at a time, you will get the job done. The pictorial directions were very understandable. My husband travels for work so I assembled all 3 pieces by myself. I am 5'2" and 108lbs. If I can assemble this by myself, anyone can assemble it. The only thing I needed a second person for was putting the coffee table top on. It's very heavy. Be patient while you are assembling. READ ALL DIRECTIONS FIRST. Lay your pieces out in the order that you will be assembling. All of the holes lined up, but a couple of pieces required wiggling them around to get the screws and dowels to fit into the holes. The metal pieces on the sides of the drawers are universal so you do not have to worry about which ones go on the right side and which ones go on the left side. When sliding the drawers in, put one hand on each side of the metal straps to hold them tight to the drawer as you slide the drawer in. You should hear BOTH sides click. If both sides do not click, your drawer will not be sturdy or slide smoothly. It took me 3 tries on each drawer before I got them both to click. The drawers slide smooth and have a little self locking feature when closed completely. With the lamp tables, be sure to put the shelf in BEFORE you put all 4 sides together. Otherwise, you can't get the shelf in. As long as you give yourself enough time to assemble without being rushed and look at this project as a fun step by step puzzle, you'll be fine. I LOVE this furniture, have a sense of accomplishment because I built it, and know I will enjoy it for years to come. 5 Stars and I highly recommend it!
Delivered in 2 boxes the same day. Very good packaging. The pieces are very heavy, one of the boxes was 80 lb, I can't remember the weight of the other one, but it was about the same. It's a little difficult to put the pieces together and initially I though I'll need help, based on the previous reviews. However, I assembled it myself and everything went well, since the instructions are great and the holes are very precise on the pieces and you shouldn't have difficulties if you have more or less experience in doing this (I bought most of my furniture from Overstock and have been doing this for years). The most difficult part for me was to put the top of the table, since it is VERY HEAVY. For this you may need another person to help you. The drawers are shallow, but I like it this way. I wish the buffet was a little bit cheaper, I would definitely buy it too! An excellent quality of wood, very sturdy and solid. Highly recommended in case you are looking for high quality product in this style. I bought it to use as a TV stand.
