This is an attractive piece and is a very good buy for the price. However I do want to make other buyers aware of some small caveats: It was very difficult to put together - the instructions actually tell you to have another person on hand, and to literally plan on blocking out an entire day, which struck me as odd considering it's a short depth, short length, simple side table. The instructions were right - almost - it did take two of us 2 hours to put together )and we're both pretty handy). It's expected, in a way, though - you're paying a very low price for a modular piece of furniture - the cost has to give on something...time is what it gives on. After a semi-frustrating process, it was ready to go. Albeit it was slightly lopsided (those predrilled holes are never quite right) but it's not noticeable really at all, and the table looks very smart and expensive once it's put together and adorned with a lamp and some decorative items. The color is espresso wood - dark with a low sheen - similar to the photo. While the piece did come with a few nicks in the finish (again, I'd be more upset if this were a $600 table), after a few strokes with a wood pen in the same color, you can't even tell. We've gotten remarks about how different and unique this table is, and how rich it looks. It's a VERY good purchase. You honestly could not do better with such a low/reasonablel price. The design and shape are extremely nice looking and the table is a great compliment to our home!!! You won't be disappointed with the final result!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? espresso wood - appeared just as i thought it would
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. it doesn't sit exactly straight - off by just a tad. not noticeable though, really. otherwise. also pieces came slightly nicked with the finish scratched off. however, after using wood pen it's not noticeable at all and is still a good table for the money.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very.
