This entertainment center is so cool...we've had so many compliments on it. Has a little "Mad Men" feel to it. The tobacco finish is such a nice difference from the typical mahogany, cherry, walnut finishes on every other piece of furniture. ONly complaint is that they must have used a very small TV in the photo because there was not that much space on each end and we have a pretty standard size TV.
Like other buyers, I was a little nervous about ordering such a large and expensive piece without being able to see it in person first, but I purchased this in the tobacco finish and am very pleased with the look and quality. Based on the picture I thought it would have a matte finish but it actually has a light sheen to it without being shiny or glossy, which actually looks even better than it looks in the photo. When I ordered I was told that assembly was not available in my area, just delivery inside the house with packaging removal, but the company that delivered it also put it together and set it up at no additional charge, which I was thrilled about. (They got a nice tip!) I don't mind putting furniture together, but the pieces of this entertainment center are large and heavy, so it would have been difficult if not impossible to assemble by myself.
This piece takes some effort to assemble but is a very sturdy entertainment center. The finish and details are great and fit perfectly in our mid-century living room. The shelves are easy to adjust and allowed us to fit a number of electronics. The drawers slide effortlessly and are well sized for gaming system components (they do not fit DVDs or media well). Very happy with this item!
This entertainment center is constructed with material that many think is cheap. I disagree. Yes, it's made of MDF board with a veneer finish instead of solid wood. But, the appearance is very nice, and the cost (compared to solid wood) is reasonable. The surface cleans easily and retains the surface shine. Construction took time...but almost ALL furniture construction takes time. The only reason I gave it a four-star rating was because I had to adjust the L-shaped cabinet doors several times to equally distance the door edges around the cabinet opening. THAT was a challenge! Other than that, this is a beautiful piece of furniture that I would recommend.
