After several months of comparison shopping both locally and online for free-standing kitchen carts/islands, my wife and I decided to purchase this item. It is a very nice-looking piece of furniture, and the quality is surprisingly good for the money. The only free-standing kitchen islands that we liked more than this one cost at least twice as much. Assembly does require two people, but it was a relatively easy process. A few additional notes: * It was shipped to us via UPS in three 75-80 lb. cartons, so be prepared for a very bulky delivery. * We did our very best to find something that would closely match our honey maple kitchen cabinets, and while this item still looks very nice in our kitchen, it has more of a light brown tobacco finish than a golden finish. It's not a big problem, but the color in the picture appeared slightly "warmer" to us than the product itself. On a positive note, the wood finish is not at all grainy-looking like a lot of other oak furnishings that we have observed. * We passed on ordering the island combo unit with the two matching stools since our kitchen has space limitations, but after seeing the quality of this piece, we now wish that we had ordered the 3-piece set. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is seeking a very nice kitchen island for less than ****.
We really love that Kitchen Island. It looks great on our kitchen and was easy to assemble. The quality of top and the whole piece is good. It is sturdy and easy to move around the kitchen. A great thing for a small kitchens which need an additional counter top to cook on. The delivery was fast too.
