This table is perfect for my modern style condo. In the first shipment the glass was broken, I place more blame on the Chicago postal service than Overstock. You should have seen the box they dumped at my door! O handeled the return very quickly with no hassels. In fact, the second table came within a week. The table is difficult to put together by one person. I used pillows to prop up the glass while I attached the bottom. It took less than an hour. The glass top is screwed(you can't see the screws) into the bottom through stainless steel plates. This makes it more sturdy than your average glass top that sits on a base.
