Yes it is small but perfect for a tight space or to fill space. I was replacing furntiure in my living room and needed a black end table. I only needed it to place a lamp and a drink and maybe a picture. It is really easy to put together (the hardest part for me was putting the drawer on because the diagram wasn't too clear). The drawer is a nice touch to keep paper, remotes, address book, or whatever you want around but don't want to leave out.
