The black top is 55 inches across and is smooth and glossy with dark gray striations throughout (like marble) the inlay colors range from dark tan to dark brown with speckled black (reminds me of granite). It is as elegant as I had hoped for and looks more expensive then it was. The cabinet has a flat finish and is not shiny/glossy with mid oak color to medium brown/chestnut, colors are very close to picture but definitely not darker. The veneer pattern on doors and sides are more angled on the piece (like lined up arrow head points) and NOT the same as the pattern pictured. The doors and drawers align perfectly, are more narrow then hoped, and have antique brass/very dark gold hardware in a flat finish with intricate detailed flowers. This piece can go into any room of the house... entry, bedroom, kitchen, dining room, it's very nice looking. I do not think it will stand up to high traffic use from children, but definitely will hold up to occasional use for a very long time.
The overall piece is nice, but know it is particle board, not real wood. It is a distressed wood look but laminate. I purchased the light oak color and it looks exactly like the picture on the website. Look close and you can see the unique designs in the laminate. Now here's the challenge. If your not great at figuring out how to put things together visually, this will be an impossible task. Like most furniture that comes in a box, it comes with directions you can pretty much sum up as being a joke. I hired a handyman and even he kept shaking his head. You have millions of parts and screws and nothing is marked so good luck trying to follow the less than thorough directions. So the living room floor was covered with parts and he began a slow tedious process of trying to figure out where everything went. It took him 3 hrs to put it together......somewhere along the line he mumbled 'I'm gonna need a drink after this", LOL! Once it was finished , it is nice looking. The mid century design is a nice departure from a typical TV stand. Being able to put accent pieces on the shelves as well as having 2 drawers is great. I paid $*** but had to add in the cost of a handyman to put it together. I have a 55 inch TV but it measures 48 inches in width. The width of the stand is 60 inches so it leaves 6 inches on either side of the TV. Perfect fit! Yes, you could go a smidge bigger in TV size, just make sure you measure the width. The box it came in is extremely heavy and I was glad I was home when the *** man came as he brought it into my condo for me. Too large and heavy for me to move. Also, because it is particle board make sure you lift it if you need to move it. If you drag it the particle board would split. This was the observation from the handyman. He was surprised they didn't use any real wood in the design, it would have made it sturdier but no doubt was cheaper to make.
