I got this table for my apartment; I wanted an oval, glass table to fit my L-shape sofa and not take away the size of the room. I felt a wood table would have too large of a "presence" and make the room seem smaller.Anyways, this table was VERY easy to put together -- took me 20 minutes (young female). Looks great when done. Very sturdy and easy to clean.Keep in mind that glass tables get finger prints (or even toe prints for those who like to prop up their feet). This requires additional cleaning than a wood table. But, for spills, the glass is much easier to clean and keep looking new.I have recommended this table to friends. And, I found a similar 3-tier glass end table to match at another site. Very pleased with my purchase! Shipping was super fast - 3 days - and cheap!
