This caught my eye while browsing and it looked like a perfect mix of contemporary with traditional styling. I bought 3 pieces to match for my living room. Easy to assemble with clear instructions. The outcome is a very solid and heavy unit with amazing fit and quality. The color is just like pictured, dark brown / espresso.
I just want to say that I was very please with this order. It was priced at a great value, shipped promptly, and it looked even better in person.... very dark...almost expresso. The assemble took about 1 1/2 hours or less, but others claimed that it took much much longer. I would recommend getting a power screwdriver because you have a lot to put in. I am also very happy with Overstocks Customer Service! I had a couple of parts that were damaged and when I called in they didn't give me any hastle and shipped me the parts I needed immediately. I had also bought 2 side tables from the same brand line and am extremely satisfied. I will definitely give Overstock my business in the future!
This is the first furniture piece that I ordered on Overstock and actually the first piece of furniture I ordered without seeing the actual thing at a showroom somewhere. I placed my order for this console table late Thursday night and got it on Wednesday of the next week so shipping was fast. The assembly was easier than I expected from previous reviewers. I had some trouble figuring how to lock the nails but it only took about 15 minutes to figured that out. I had no problems such as unfit pre-drilled holes as some of the other reviewers had. The instructions were clear up to the point where you have to put in the "gliders" on the side of the drawers. The instructions did not indicate which end or side the gliders go. After a few wrong moves, we got the drawers gliding the right way into the table. We are not very handy but it only took us 2.75 hours to set it up. Be sure to have your own set of tools as the tools it came with did not work well at all and expecting to use them to assemble the console table would've taken forever. After setting up, it looked just like what is shown on the picture. It is a very modern and chic piece and goes well with our contemporary furniture. It appears to be pretty sturdy too. I highly recommend this console table to anybody who is looking for one.
I was looking for a nice piece for our foyer in this color finish. I was skeptical about buying something unseen . This is a nice dark expresso color, not black but a real dark dark brown. It was fairly easy to assemble and the quality is great for the price. It's not cheap flimsy wood. It looks like a $300-$400 table. I definitely recommend this piece to anyone!
I was skeptical after reading reviews about the assembly time of this table. But I went ahead & took the plunge. As others have mentioned, YES it does take around 2 hours to assemble even when using a drill to speed the process along. I managed to put it together by myself, a female in my early 30s. I will also reiterate, that the drawers do split easily when putting the screws into the rails, do NOT over tighten. All in all, I am very happy with the purchase of this product. The description is accurate & it is perfect for use as my TV stand. I would like to provide a few additional measurements as I would have liked to know before purchasing, the height from the ground to the bottom of the drawers is 18.5" (enough space to store items under if necessary). The height from top of drawers to glass table top is 4-5" (enough space for my cable box, router, etc. I say 4" b/c where the edging is it is only 4" but where the glass top is there is 5"....the wooden frame top is about 2" all the way around the top of the table).
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is brown but more of an espresso finish, dark brown.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality product for the price.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description matches actual finished product.
The assembly was no a lot of fun, as it came in a flat box with many pieces of wood, screws, and dowel pegs, but once put together this is a beautiful piece! It is perfect for my foyer, or even a sofa table. The drawers are actually larger than I expected, as there is one drawer on each side, rather than 2 as it appears. It is a faux double drawer "look," but the drawer is the full depth when opened.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
My husband and I purchase this table for our family room and it exceeded our expectations! I assembled it myself. All hardware was included, all holes lined up and no nicks or scratches. Assembly went quick but I already had experience from assembling two other pieces from this collection. Note the measurements as this is smaller than other console tables we considered - this one is perfect for our space! I wish Overstock had a feature of letting u post our own photos so you can see how nice it looks.
I AM DISAPPOINTED! THE CONSOLE LOOKS GREAT IN THE CATALOG, AND THE QUALITY IS GREAT!!! HOWEVER, ASSEMBLING THIS ITEM IS RIDICULOUSLY TEDIOUS. FROM MISSING PARTS TO MISGUIDING DIRECTIONS. I AM APPALLED AT THE TIME I'VE WASTED ON ATTEMPTING TO ASSEMBLE THE CONSOLE. I HAVE PURCHASED AND ASSEMBLED FURNITURE PURCHASED AT OVERSTOCK MANY TIMES, AS I AM A FREQUENT SHOPPER HERE AND I'VE REFERRED MANY FRIENDS AND CLIENTS . NEEDLESS TO SAY, INSTEAD OF SENDING IT BACK, I WILL BE TRASHING THIS ITEM . AS I WOULD LIKE TO END THIS NIGHTMARE ASAP. I READ THE REVIEWS ON THIS ITEM. THEY WERE ALL VERY POSITIVE AND I WAS ENCOURAGED TO KEEP TRYING. NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT DID NOT WORK OUT!!!! DISAPPOINTED!
The table comes as 20 pieces of wood and about 3 lbs of hardware. The directions are useless. Seriously, nothing was drawn to scale, some of the pieces didn't have any pre-drilled holes, and it took us 2 days with 4 college degrees between us to figure out how the drawers went in. If you don't want to dedicate a weekend to figuring out this piece of furniture - then don't get it. This is the third piece of furniture I've ordered on Overstock and this piece is by far the most cumbersome to put together. Once together..it looks nice. But way, way too much work.
This console table is sturdy, and with the double shelf and glass top, the table (we are using it as a sofa table) is much sturdier than most I have seen. It is also a ncie quality of wood and dark espresso stain. Very happy about the table, especially the price....now that it is assembled. :-( Previous reviews had forewarned us that the assembly time was a bit daunting. My husband and I both worked on the assembly for 3 1/2 hours. It is accurately advertised as a two person job too. You will need an extra pair of hands here and there. The manufacturers are not wrong there. To keep our marriage intact, we started this project early on a holiday morning to allow us plenty of time to work on it. Please take time to ensure all pieces are there, all rails, all screws, bolts, etc. as there are many peices. There are usually extra screws etc and that is a good thing b/c two of the hardware pieces were stripped. Make sure you haev the required screw drivers, both a Phillips which most have and a hex screwdriver which is needed to tighten some of the bolts. Also, don;t tighten to final "tightness" all the bolts until you put the leggs, top and back on, as it originally would not all fit. We had read some previosu reviews on that, so we loosened the bolts, the pieces all fit and then we re-tightned to final "tightness" standard. There was some damage to the underside of the top but as it is not seen, and we had waited about 9 days for delivery (as opposed to 3-5 days). In the end, we elected not to exchange it but it was a bit disconcerting. The items was packaged extremely well from the manufacturer, so we think it was damaged prior to shipping, not in transit. the table parts and hardware came in two large boxes. Finally, the instructions are detailed, but we found several errors, so again - best to have two heads working the project. Just don't get in a hurry and you will be fine. Also, a coupe of the screw holes on the metal drawer slides were too large for the screws that were provided in the hardware packet; we simply used a screw hole right next to the intended one and it worked fine. Not sure the quality control on metal work is very good but it is functional. All assembled, it looks lovely and we are pleased...but whew! it tooks us some time to get there.
Though I'm familiar with *** products, this table proved to be beyond assembly for me. The instructions were poorly written and illustrated. One misstep, and of which there were plenty, results in a scratched or marred finish. Worse yet, what with all pieces strewn about my living room, and upon calling for professional help, the handyman quoted $150 to assembly the table. Next time it'll be cheaper to just shop at a furniture store, have it delivered and set up. Done. Finished. Never again.
I read the reviews before purchasing this and I don't know if we received a fluke or others drilled new holes, but the assembly of this piece was a nightmare.......and we have assembled a lot of furniture lately since we are furnishing a new home. What an absolute nightmare! The tools are pathetic, ok, use your own........the pieces don't align, not ok, wood doesn't bend, the sliding drawers have to be assembled from scratch, the directions are badly written, so good luck. We unhappily decided to keep the piece because after investing so much time with it and after realizing how challenging the return would be, it didn't seem worth it to try to disassemble it and try to box it up. And it's really too bad because it presents nicely. For now, until we find a finer piece, we turned it around and left the drawers out. What a waste of time and money. I would warn anyone about buying this piece.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? spot on

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? aside from the fact that we had to turn it around because the drawers were misaligned, good
This console table came quickly from Overstock. The table looks exactly as it is pictured (including the color). My husband put it together and it took at least one hour. I love the glass top because it allows for items to be displayed in a unique way. My husband complained about the quality of the drawers which I believe were made of particle board. But overall, the piece looks really nice. It looks modern/transitional and is something that you can be proud of in your home.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the overall piece was great but the drawers could have been more substantial.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
The instructions for assembly need to be clarified. Some of the pieces did not have the necessary holes pre-drilled. The piece looked great when assembled but a few short months later the wood began splitting. For these reasons I would not recomment this product.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Assembly was complicated. However, it looked great until the wood began splitting!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very.
I love this table. It is beautiful and very high end looking. Well packaged, prompt delivery. Unfortunately I needed an espresso stain tone (dark brown with bit of black), but this stain was completely black. No brown tone in it at all. I would have loved to keep it but sadly doesn't go with my décor. Customer service did an excellent job and the table was picked up for return the very next day. If you are considering this table and the black stain works with your décor don't hesitate to purchase this fine console. You won't be disappointed.

Looks twice as good as same-priced products in local furniture stores . You're saving half the cost by assembling it. You have to pre-read the instructions carefully to be sure you're putting the correct pieces together.

Excellent choice..... looks like it should have cost a lot more than it did.... Assembly was straight-forward, but the instructions could use some clearer pictures.... It is a little strange that the kit of fasteners, dowels, etc did not include the hex key required for assembly.... The fasteners were a little difficult to twist in, and some stripped.... All in all, considering other user-assembled pieces I've purchased, this was a good choice for us.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The site picture was accurate
