Quality and appearance is great and can't beat the price. My sister has also purchased one for her home when she saw mine while at Thanksgiving dinner. The base of the table is a nice dark espresso color and the table is faux leather that is darker than the base, which gives off a very nice contrasting finish to the appearance of the table. I love the hidden storage where I put all my books and magazines and even snacks! I love love this modern coffee table! Way to go Overstock!!!
