This piece was perfect to put in our formal living room. The right color, the right length and height, pretty modern... but it was an absolute nightmare to put together. I will probably never buy a piece of furniture I have to put together myself based on this piece. There were 15 steps but one "step" would include five additional steps within it, making one step instructions a complete paragraph that was really confusing with all of the 15 different screws, bolts, etc . Some pieces we didn't even use like the little wooden dowels because they wouldn't fit in the pre-made holes or made it even harder to put together. With my husband and I doing it together it took probably 5+ hours. Everything came in 3 separate boxes too. So once we finally found the instructions and laid everything out we were able to start. It's very sturdy and stable and looks great but such a pain putting together. Our electric drill wouldn't screw the screws all the way down either. For whatever reason, we had to hand screw on everything.
