I ordered two of these nightstands for a client. When they arrived, one was in perfect condition, and the other was damaged on the top back right corner. I called and they shipped a replacement which I received within a week. It was damaged also, on the top back left corner. Again, I called and they were apologetic and offered to ship another one by 2 day shipping. I asked them to please ask the warehouse to mark it with arrows, indicating "this end up" in an effort to keep the top from being damaged again. I was told they would do this. I did not receive the item, so I called back one week later to check on it. They said it had been placed on hold and the order had never been completed. I was told again that it would ship on 2 day shipping. I finally received it one week later, UPS left it on my porch on its side...no arrows had been drawn indicating to keep it upright...top back right corner damaged. Overstock has lost all future business from me. The nightstands are great if you're lucky enough to receive one undamaged. They have soft close drawers and appear to be well-made and sturdy. Disappointed with shipping/damages to say the least though. Overstock is crediting me for the cost of the damaged nightstand so can I satisfy my client by offering her a free nightstand. However, I'm left spending my time attempting to repair the damage and spending money purchasing wood putty, stain markers, and varnish.
They are beautiful tables. We use ours as coffee tables because we needed smaller ones for our living room. The only reason that I give it a 4/5 is because there was a crack in the top of the table that had been varnished over. I understand that these are not supposed to be perfect and natural wood but these didn't seem to be imperfections in the wood but actual cracks. Not so bad that we didn't keep them.
This nightstand is exactly what I was looking for! It's got a lovely finish, is solid and well designed, and it was easy to put together. It was also packaged very well so it arrived without any damage. The height is also a plus as we have this next to a higher bed with a deep mattress and the level with the bed is perfect. All this combined with a very reasonable price made it an excellent purchase! I've used the item for about 6 months now, and one small thing I've noticed is the drawer has a bit of an odd odor - I notice it every time I open it. It's hard to describe - a bit of an oil or varnish, but like no other I've smelled before. I have a very sensitive nose so many people may not notice this; once I close the drawer I can't smell it (leaving it open for long periods has not alleviated it). However, as I said, that is just a tiny issue and has not made me love the piece any less!
This is so nice! The color is true to description and no assembly was required. It was superbly packed and arrived completely intact. A "varnish" smell disappeared in 2 days. Very happy I purchased this.
