This is a really nice piece of furniture, high quality, solid and heavy, with a beautiful finish. I will be using it for many years to come. I bought it to match the Contemporary Shaker bed that I had previously purchased from Overstock. The finish is a bit redder than the bed but that is fine with me. The table ships fully assembled; all you have to do is insert the shelf support pins and shelf, and choose and install your knob (wooden or chrome). The design is simple, sleek, and sophisticated. I am very happy with this purchase!
