Looks great in my asian dining room
 from Granada Hills, CA,  Oct 18, 2006

Dark and rich in color, and a little sheen to the finish. It says matte, but I would say that it is somewhere between an eggshell and semi-gloss finish. The finish did chip slightly when I was screwing the legs on, so take care. This was on the underside, and won't show, and is pretty tiny (less than the size of a baby pea), but I thought that I should mention it because this was done with only my fingernail. It was close to the hole for the bolt, and there must have been a little bubble in the finish. This would be best with a piece of glass on it, which I will have to, and expected to, buy. I was looking for an altar table, and this is very similar to one that I already own in appearance, but it is a little shorter. Also, my other one has no hardware showing, I paid a lot more for it about 20 years ago, and it goes together like a puzzle. But this one has bolts that thread through, and although they don't show with the way I have this displayed in my step down room, they might need to be "painted out" if you have a low chair next to it, and you can see the underside of the unit., The price is right for the look, and it does look a lot more expensive. I have some crystal and a small marble statue on it, and no one would guess that it wasn't the same quality as my other one I already own. Assembly was easy, but again, make sure that you do this on a soft clean surface, so you don't scrath the finish. I am very happy with the piece, and I feel comfortable enough to purchase more asian pieces from Overstock in the future.
