I have just made my first two Overstock purchases - both are tables. This is my first review, and I totally loved this table. It is truly solid oak, and I have not seen a solid wood table like this anywhere. i am so tired of particle board, so I was excited about this one. The only problem for me was the manufacturer sent the table in a box held together with a weak tape, so the lid was torn off, and the table was damaged. I called Overstock about it, and they helped me right away. Terrific customer service! You should order this table if you want a solid piece of furniture made of true wood, not particle board.. The color is a rich, dark espresso coffee color, and has a nice subtle sheen to the wood. I think Overstock is going to ensure the manufacturer boxes this table with more durable packaging because truthfully, they made a gorgeous table, and it deserves great packaging. I did get another table at the same time, and it arrived in a perfect box, and it is gorgeous. Great customer service Overstock, and wonderful quality. I will definitely be buying more! I trust Overstock.com completely! ivre! I'm not afraid to order anything from Overstock based on this wonderful experience. The table was not damaged by Overstock, but by the manufacturer - yet the manufacturer made a lovely table. I am going to write another review on the other table I ordered that came in a perfect box - and it is beautiful. I am going to order more things from Overstock.com for sure! My new favorite online shopping store!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Darker
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The wood is outstanding, and a dark espresso coffee color. Solid oak which is rare these days. Mine arrived in a very flimsy box so it was damaged, but I think Overstock is fixing that problem with the manufacturer, so if you want a solid oak, dark table, this is great. Top cleans well. Too bad mine was damaged, but I think Overstock is contacting the manufacturer to be sure they ship this beautiful table in a more protective box.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate. Very solid wood. Not particle board - true solid wood. Color is a rick, dark coffee color.
