I ordered these tables to replace some that I had bought previously on O. I was looking for much sturdier tables that would stand up to my 4 sons. The design of these tables seemed sturdier on the website and I can vouch for the fact that they are. We received this (and two matching end tables) one evening and my son and I put them all together in about an hour. All pieces were present and they provide an allen wrench, which, along with a screw driver, was all we needed. My son put all washers on the screws before we started so we could just grab them and use them as needed without having to search for the washers. If you buy the end tables to go with this coffee table, you need to be aware of making sure the lines in the wood surfaces are facing the right way. We accidentally put one sideways and had to take it apart and put it together the right way, which wasn't a big deal and only took a few minutes. The only negative I can say about these tables is that they show every tiny bit of dust or dog hair in the room. I just dust them off with a dry cloth frequently. And because there are lines in the wood, dust tends to settle in them, so you have to pay special attention to cleaning out the "grout" lines. The color is nice, the quality is good, they are sturdy, and the coffee table has an extra shelf which we use to store the boys' video games and accessories so they are in easy reach. The end tables have two extra shelves each - great for additional storage for coasters, books, magazines, remote controls, etc. Also, you must use coasters on these table surfaces or you'll end up with rings. I found the size of this and the end tables to be perfect for our family room and fairly generous.
