This is an excellent product - yes minor issues of the handles getting loose and the doors a bit tight to open and close. Otherwise the quality of the product overall is very good. This is a fully assembled product and would recommend its delivered to the room where it should be placed - its very heavy. The finish is excellent and have to admit is does stand out in a room. The shelves are of a fixed height - 3 rows that are uniform across the unit. So be careful if you are looking to place tall items.
Would have given 5 stars had it not been for the two minor issues mentioned above and that the order delivery got a bit delayed for delivery. But it was resolved after the Christmas vacation in early January.
Would recommend the product to anyone else.
This is a very nice buffet, solid wood (super heavy).There was some excess finish/dye all over the piece when it arrived that discoloured my hands when I touched it. Easily remedied with a quick wipe down. The hardware was not up to dealing with the strength of the magnets that keep the doors closed. When I received it, one of the handles had come halfway out of the door frame. I had to put a washer on the inside of the door and replace the screw with a longer one so it wouldn't rip right out of the door. I couldn't be bothered to return the piece for such a simple fix, especially at the price I paid. I also reinforced all the other doors since I could see it happening to them as well.
I got this to match an existing dinning room table i bought at Wicker Emporium. Even though they are from different groups, the matched up perfectly. It is perfect for storage and display which i love. It is nice to be able to display dishes and have a place to store them at the same time.
It is solid wood and pretty heavy. This very well built and designed. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
We were considering having built-in cabinets on either side of our living room fireplace but instead purchased two of these cabinets. They have added a wonderful character to our home and the quality of the pieces is just fabulous. Compared to the cost of built-ins they were incredibly economical.
