Brexley coffee table
It arrived well packaged and with concise assembly instructions.
Connecting the side frames to the bottom panel was easy and only took about five minutes. The next `easy stage` is where I went wrong. The instruction say to insert the dowels into the top panel and then insert the base into the top panel. No real need to read the instructions…this is easy I thought. Instead I fitted the dowels into the base and then tried to line up the top to fit onto the side frames. The top is quite heavy and while struggling to line it up, one of the side frames was hit by the falling heavy top and it snapped off at the base. Had I read the instructions and followed them, it would have been easy to line the base up with the top as it is much lighter and the side frames can be maneuvered to line the dowels with the holes. Rather than send it back, I glued the piece back on and used slightly longer screws. The next day, I put the coffee table together in 10 minutes and this time following the instructions and it was so easy to fit.
Moral of the story….read the instructions, however easy it seems.
This Brexley coffee table is very well made and certainly a beautiful finish. It already attracts positive attention almost as soon as people see it in the dining room. Complete, the measurements are forty three and a half inches length, twenty one and a quarter inches width and eighteen and a half inches high. I would buy another one. In fact, the wife has just looked over my shoulder and says we are.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinOH Solid build, looks great!
This coffee table is really solidly built. I couldn't tell if the slabs were solid hardwood or veneered, but if it was engineered wood it had me fooled. It sure looks and feels like solid hardwood. If it looks like a duck and acts like a duck...
I can't express how solid the surfaces feel compared to some of the particleboard / cardboard ready-to-assemble stuff we've looked at. This is one table you shouldn't be afraid to kick your feet up on to, it can support it.
The color is great - it's a really good looking piece of furniture. Best feature? Adjustable feet. Our old hardwood floor is a little warped and the adjustable feet came in handy.
Assembly was quick, maybe 30 minutes. No tools needed except the included allen key. There are only 4 pieces, the two sides and the two surfaces... nice! I don't mind assembly but I hate when there are 60 million pieces. This one went together quick.
Check your box for damaged when you get it, it's HEAVY and we had one corner slightly dinged by the shipping company.

Assembly took 30 minutes at most, used the picture on the website for some guide. You can create your own storage by putting some baskets on the bottom rack. Color can match most browns.

My first shipment arrived damaged. My local store accepted the return and gave me store credit. I ordered another online which arrived in good condition. Assembly was easy. But the veneer quality is poor. A corner broke away while installing because the veneer was not glued on well. I also ordered two matching bookcases which had the same veneer problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beth Nice ...BUT
Nice rich color ... but ... splotchy finish. Leg braces had gouges and one of the table top corners was crushed. Very unhappy but I am ordering another one just in case I got a bad one. Will post a review once the new one arrives.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryT Great inexpensive piece of furniture
We've been wanting a new coffee table for the den in our basement. This table is a perfect addition and looks great with our existing furniture.
I'll group my comments into pros and cons below:
First the pros:
1. It's a good looking table and a great value.
2. Assembly was straight forward and can be accomplished without assistance. From start to finish it took me about 30 minutes.
3. My biggest pet peeve is unclear or difficult to follow instruction. The instructions for this table were clear and easy to follow.
4. The table arrived well packaged and there was no damage from shipping.
1. Really only one - when installing the assembled bottom to the table top, it's cumbersome to do alone and takes a little patience. As I said above, I did it alone but it would have been easier with a helper.
If you're looking for a good inexpensive and attractive table for your den or living room, this is a great choice.
