I bought this piece after a long search for a buffet to match my black/brown dining room table from xxxxxxx. This piece is such a dark color, I would call it black/brown, so don't be misled by the description. It looks great with our contemporary dining set. It took my husband and I 2 1/ 2 hours to put it together, using a drill. We had a little confusion with the directions pointing to the 'front' which led to us putting one piece in backwards that had to be taken apart and reassembled. In general, the instructions were good, though. There were plenty of parts and extras of most hardware. Once tightened up, everything fit well--although we were never able to tighten down the top piece. Once the top was on, we couldn't get the screws to turn to tighten it, and we couldn't get it back off, either, so we decided it was fine. We carried it from the living room to the dining room by the top, and it stayed securely in place. It's larger than I would have guessed from the pictures (it does have dimensions, to be fair), but we bought it for storage, so I'm glad to have all the room. My only complaint would be that the doors don't fit quite right. With lots of adjusting, they are still slightly crooked (maybe I'm a perfectionist), but it's not noticable in the dining room, next to the table. We like it enough that we plan to buy an end table and the tv stand to have matching pieces. I wish there was a coffee table, too. We really like this style and it's a pretty good price. The shipping was faster than I expected, too. It's a sharp, sturdy, heavy piece of furniture that I am eager to show off.
