The chairs came well packaged and arrived relatively quickly. We had seen them before at a local furniture store but these were priced much less and no tax! They have a decent weight to them and don't look like poor quality. Assembly took a couple of hours to do 6 chairs. Instructions were not the greatest but you eventually figure things out. You'll need a Philip's head screwdriver and then I used a cordless drill instead of the allen wrench they supplied to do a majority of the assembly. A few tips: The L/R support rails were all marked wrong - they were the reverse. There is also a front/back to them that you'll figure out if things don't line up with the vertical legs. The wood screws for the chair cushion didn't work for me. I purchased some 1.75 particle board screws which would actually allow me to attach them (it came with 1.625 wood screws). No big deal but did require a trip to the local big-box store and $5 for all 8 of my chairs. My only real "complaint" would be the front cross-brace only has 7.5" of clearance. Since I have a double-pedestal table that's rather large, the cross-brace will not fit over the pedestal leg. Not the chairs fault but does make me have to arrange the chairs in a certain fashion when not in use.
I ordered this daybed to replace the bed my son took with him when he left home, and it's worked out very well. I already had 2 twin mattresses but no place to put them, so I bought this daybed and a pop-up trundle that fits under it, and both beds work very well. The daybed went together easily with only the allen wrench that came with the bed and feels very firm and sturdy. The slats are metal and actually lock into the frame so they don't move around at all--unlike some beds with wooden slats. The pop-up trundle, which I also bought from Overstock, is very sturdy as well and opens easily. It sits on carpet and doesn't roll when you get in it, but might roll some on a wood or tile floor. Not a problem on carpet. The clearance for the trundle is 15" and the regular-size mattress (not a thin one) fits easily and snugly under the daybed. I also bought a daybed cover set from Overstock, which looks great and my son says is very comfortable to sleep under. Batting 1000 on this one.
I purchased two of these tables in natural finish. They are solid oak, no veneer, no MDF. The finish is clear and semi-gloss. They are heavy, substantial pieces, yet in place they look less weighty because of the roomy clearance underneath. The drawers come with handles attached and fit perfectly, moving easily with neither sticking nor rattling. The grain on the top and front of the tables is beautiful. I was concerned it might be "too much" to be alongside a smooth-grained maple bed, but it is perfectly subtle and entirely natural. The piece was finished (the clear topcoat) with the legs attached. Then the legs were removed for shipping, (this is obvious). Your only task is to attach the legs. BE AWARE that the legs are "hand-whittled" to fit a little jigsaw at each corner, and each fitting is a little bit different! If you find that any leg is a bit snug or loose before you attach the bolt, don't force it; just move the legs around until each finds its "home". Originally, there were four good fits; you only have to experiment. I hope you appreciate these little gems as much as we do! (They are exactly like the Porthos Monet side tables, as far as I can tell, except for the materials used.) Each leg attaches with a single fat long bolt and an Allen wrench (included). The bolt heads are recessed, as they should be. These are very fine cabinets and I am totally satisfied with every detail!
1) Wood components were of high quality and finish, very satisfied. 2) Assembly was challenging because of fitment issues with the hardware: a) Shelving inserts had large burrs on .25" OD which prevented them from going into the holes. I had to file the burr off each one to make it fit. b) Some of the wood screws and joining hardware was challenging to screw into the wood because of the holes being undersize and the lack of pre-drilled holes. c) The top wood panel isn't quite flush with the left side panel, not sure why, the dowel pins and joining plugs and hardware were all tightened with both a phillips head screw driver and 4 mm allen wrench (which should be included with the hardware because not many people have a set of metric allen wrenches). Overall, the finished product is made from quality wood products that is finished well and looks great.
