This is a beautiful coffee table. And it is also useful. The top lifts so you can have a snack or dinner or use it as a writing table. There is storage underneath the top. You can store cards, board games, puzzles or anything you wish to keep handy. Please note, it is a challenge to put together. My son and wife worked a couple of hours. I am pleased and have enjoyed having this table.
This coffee table is pretty good for the price, but check the measurements because the way it is shot in the photo makes it look deeper than it is. The edges of the veneer could be better, but they're not horrible. The whole thing is easy to put together by one person EXCEPT when it comes time to put the lift top part on. The metal pieces easily scratch the veneer every time they touch, so there is no way to not get some part of the table scratched during this step, even WITH help. You will need an electric screwdriver or at least a ratcheting screwdriver for this, or else you will be there forever. I had two screws and a hidden cam cover left over when done, even though I did follow the directions exactly, so they may put extra pieces in there just in case. All in all a nice little unit, perfect for hiding remote controls, books, and MAYBE a flat folded blanket or two.

This is a heavy box so you will definitely. need help to get it in the house if it is delivered to your house. The instructions are pretty clear and I did manage to do it all with just one person but it would probably be easier with two people to put on the top part. Did it the wrong way off the instructions the first time. I put mine on rollers to make it easier to move. As I said this is a heavy piece! The look is pretty good for photo and it does look pretty darn good competed.

I have 2 pieces in this collection now, and have plans to add a few more. They take a little time to assemble, but they are engineering masterpieces. Everything fits, the holes are right where they need to be, and the hardware is the correct size. This furniture is every bit as good, or better, than the furniture coming off boats from overseas, and it's made right here in the good ol' US of A. Kudos to Sauder for making quality products in the United States.

1. Overly complicated to assemble.
2. Not all components were labelled. Some were marked with a pen on the edge instead of a big paper label sticker. Had a hard time to find the marking..
3. No spare fastener ...not even a single extra in case of screw up damage to the fastener,
Product is OK if you can put up with all the shortcomings but still not a great product.
