My husband and I ordered this coffee table as a Christmas gift for my parents. It is absoutely gorgeous! And it was so easy to put together!!! The directions said it was a 2 person job, well I have no patience and wanted it assembled immediately so I did it by myself and it was a cinch! Very simple, never needed the 2nd person and I was done in about 25 minutes. The finished product was beautiful, there were none of the uneven tiles that someone else had mentioned, and my parents couldn't be happier. I am online right now to order one for myself now!
