This coffee table is huge! It came packaged in a massive package, almost 5'x5'. It was packed really well and there was no damage when I opened it. It looks just as the picture shows. The only issue I have with the product is that the L-shape bolts it came with that connect the chrome pieces to the wood table are not 90 degrees. So when we put the table together, it was very difficult to screw these pieces together and once we did, I had to readjust because if we screwed them too tightly, it looked like the chrome pieces were bent inwards. We will eventually go to the hardware store and but new perfectly angled L shape pieces to replace the ones the table came with. Other than that, the table is beautiful and the white storage section is very functional.
