This cabinet is sturdy (and heavy). The drawers are deep and felt-lined. We were able to assemble it without any significant problems. The interior light looks great, and you can set it at three levels. Holds our china, crystal, and extra dishes. It is a true dark brown. Came with some damage that Overstock immediately made right--great customer service.
I made arrangements for my daughter to come and assemble the unit. When we unpacked it there were no instructions. Went on line and was told we could not get instructions for 2-3 days. Then my daughter went on line and was able to locate the instructions. She felt instructions were not clear, and it took her almost two hours to complete the task. Overall, I do like the unit and it's appearance, but am having difficulty find roll out shelving because of the small depth of the unit.
I'm pleased with the piece overall. I do have a few concerns which I will outline below. (1) Some panels were damaged, fortunately the damage was on the underside and is out of view (2) Piece "I" the horizontal bar across the bottom just below the drawers and doors is slightly short making the dowels visible through the cracks. I made sure the tighten all the cam nuts, there are no gaps between panels. (3) I broke a few cam nuts, overstock could not send me replacement parts due to the item being out of stock. I felt that this piece of hardware as well as the screws that fasten the back to the unit are of inferior quality. I had breakage problems with both hardware types. Luckily I was able to purchase additional cams from the hardware store (4) I'm not a fan of the cam bolt and locking nut solution. Only time will tell how long this will hold up. The unit is quite solid and heavy, the wife likes the way it looks. Despite it's shortcomings I still like it very much.
I looked around for a while for a contemporary styled china cabinet. There just aren't that many choices out there if you don't want to spend thousands of dollars. This was a very happy find for us. It is reasonably priced and has a nice contemporary style. We purchased the buffet and 2 of the hutches. When I attached them to the wall we did not stack them directly above and below like in the picture. I offset the 2 hutches so that one is slightly to the right and one is slightly to the left of the buffet. It's a fun look and allowed us to hang some wine glass holders from the top hutch and still be able to stack things (like a wine rack) on the buffet. There are some things to be aware of though. The pieces arrived in good condition, but they scuff and mark easily, so assemble with care. Assembly was easy, but be aware that there are 2 types of hinge attachments. One for the outside doors, and one for the middle door. When you hang the provided railing on the wall, don't screw it in all the way. Leave a little breather room to get the cabinet unit to be able to slide down on the railing. After the unit is on the wall, then tighten the screws the rest of the way in. Also add a couple screws through the back panel of the cabinet. That adds a lot of stability. Once the cabinets are up, be aware that the material is slick. If you are storing glasses in the cabinets they can easily slide around or even out of the cabinet. I suggest adding some sticky-back felt or other non-slip material to the bottom of the inside cabinet sections.
