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 needed to furnish a weekend getaway property, and a dresser in the main bedroom was a priority. I saw this item on Overstock, showed it to my wife, who said, "Let's go a little crazy and get 3--one for the bedroom, one for the guestroom, and one for the den." We did, have had them nearly 3 years now, and love them. Assembly was pretty easy, and they look just great.
Although this cart is small, it is very attractive. I only wish the top was mirrored too though. Otherwise, this cart meets my needs, as I only wanted something unobtrusive. It goes very well with my silver. I think it looks very classy. Don't get this if your'e looking for a lots of shelf space though.
I needed this as a temporary furnishing and was able to purchase with an email coupon, so the price was right. However, it was difficult to put together even though I have assembled a lot of furniture in my day. The top is varnished, so you cannot actually use it as a butcher block or cut anything on it without destroying the finish. Also, the drawers are as deep as the unit is, but they pull out only about half way making them virtually useless when trying to quickly access utensils during cooking, etc. if you only need storage, this unit is ok. The drop leaf is sturdy when open, so it works as a small table very well. It just has a few design issues that if I had known in advance, I would have chosen a different product.
