Altra Parsons End Table, It’s awful to assemble but it looks good after.

Just what i needed – we put our laser printer on it – which is pretty heavy. It’s just the perfect size for a brother hl model. I keep printer paper in the drawer and catalogs on the shelf, but it would also work for paper and you could store extra ink in the drawer. Sure it’s just cheap laminate, but it looks good and does the job and you can’t beat the price.

It’s awful to assemble but it looks good after. . After assembling this table i really enjoy it. Most of the assembly was manageable even without a drill, however, the bottom floor piece was almost impossible to screw into without a drill as there were no pre-drilled holes and the board is thick. It took a long and stressful time to attach that piece. Then after it was assembled we saw scratches on the top from struggling to screw in the bottom. Moral of the story: invest in a drill if you don’t already have one and this table won’t be too difficult to assemble and it will work and look good.

This is actually the second one of these i’ve purchased. I have one in each of my boys’ bedrooms next to their bed. It’s definitely a cheaper piece of furniture (particle board), but i like that it is sturdy and won’t tip over, and it has a little drawer to stash stuff.

Product extremely cheap – and came with wrong parts. Product is cheaply made, which is to be expected for the price. However, the box came with an incorrect part packed in there. Absolutely zero quality control, and i am unable to assemble without this part. Edit 7/13 *upgraded to 3 stars as the new part was sent relatively quickly, and worked. Still cheap – some loose fitting joints are impossible to fix, for instance – but workable. And hey, it’s actually cheap.

Inexpensive & helpful little table.

Assembly directions were easy to follow. Assembly directions were easy to follow, but some of the holes didn’t line up and had to be re-drilled. Also some of the cam lock screws didn’t go in very tightly. I was afraid it wasn’t going to be very sturdy once put together, but it was. I don’t have anything too heavy on it (just my daughter’s hamster cage and supplies in the drawer). It’s the perfect small table for what we use it for.

Nice end result. Takes a while to assemble. . Assembly was probably about a 5 on the easy scale (10 being easiest) it wasn’t ‘difficult’ per say but it was time consuming. Final product is nice but i’m pretty sure i watched a few episodes of a tv show while i was putting this thing together.

Sauder Palladia Library, Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble

Each one dinged up from shipping, about 4-5 hr to assemble. I bought three of these which took about 4-5 hours each to assemble. Every one of them had some kind of shipping ‘ding’ in it and once you get it all out of the box trying to return is a hassle. I don’t like the top piece which covers the top 3. 5 inches of your books making it difficult to remove them. They do look nice, but plan on buying stain to cover the dings.

This bookshelf unit is not super high-end, but it is not priced that way either. It is a good product for the money, solid and nice-looking. It matches the other sauder palladia products well. The unit arrived with some shipping damage, but amazon got this squared away with a replacement swap quickly. My wife is happy, so i am pleased.

This bookshelf is quite beautiful. It is very heavy and sturdy. As other commenters pointed out, we did also have one broken piece. It was one of the rounded decorative moldings, so i was able to finish putting the piece together and now waiting for the replacement part to arrive. Called sauder and they were wonderful. Glad i had read reviews and knew that other people had been successful with this. 5 hours for me to put this together by myself, but i am pretty good at putting this kind of stuff together.

Just like the picture and perfect for our office. The unit took a couple of hours to assemble, but we love the way it looks.

Extremely nice library bookcase. Purchased 4 of these units to make a library wall. Extremely well made; all the holes were in the right places and the right size, all hardware was supplied and of good quality. They take a while to assemble, but the instructions are good, and the hole placements in the parts keep you from possibly mistaking one part for another, during assembly they are very heavy. Strongly recommend fastening to the wall with hardware supplied, as it they tipped; not a good thing.

Cherry color is dark, more like mahogany. The instructions were pretty good and everything matched up and fit well. No trees were damaged in the making of this product. But a comparable product made out of real wood is close to ten times the price.

Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble. As many reviewers mentioned, the package for pretty heavy. But the individual pieces were brittle. While arranging the pieces for assembling, two pieces collided with each other and one of them got chipped. Many pieces were missing labels, but the pictures on the assembling instructions were helpful in the guessing game. The pieces stuck to each other very well and the final product looked so professional. I might buy again from this manufacturer.

The bookcase looks really nice. I didn’t have any scratched pieces. Assembling the unit took about three hours (by myself). Most of the pieces were not labeled, which made it take longer to put together. The only thing i don’t like is the fold seam down the middle of the back panel. Once i get my books on the shelves, you shouldn’t be able to see it as much though. The shelves sit on small pegs that can easily be moved up or down.

Stylemaster Alexandria Matelasse Chair Furniture Throw, Happy with purchase

Just know that the burgundy is not a deep brownish red or wine. . It is very redthe cover is very long, but i do agree not wide enough to fully cover the back of your sofa. I would say it is perfect for my use since my couch is up against a wall. I do have a couple feet of the throw hanging over the back of the couch. The material is very durable for those who have pets. Keep in mind, cats scratch just about anything, and mine do like to scratch this, but it does protect my sofa. Any extra material that overhangs on the side of the couch can be tucked in under the couch. Added protection for cats that like to get under the throws to hide, play or scratch. Same goes for dogs that like to get under the throw to rub their backs on the couch.

It is made with really good cloth. I got the one for a large sofa and was a little bit sad that there wasn’t more cloth so it would be big enough. The length is fine but the width is short. When you sit on the couch the back part falls down behind you. I have tried different ways, which there isn’t a lot, to see how i can get it so it stays on when someone sits on it. I might go and buy me some extra cloth, that i can get to the closest match to the color. I know that i can’t match the pattern. I will add it on the width and just have that section in the back. I am sure that the couch cover will be able to stay in place after that.

I was skeptical about using a couch cover at first because all of the couch covers that i had ever seen were a bit tacky; however, i bought this item because i fostered two cats and didn’t want my beautiful new couch trashed. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this material is so stylish, comfortable to the touch, and visually appealing that i actually prefer keeping the couch cover on the couch now, even though the cats are long gone.

I wanted a plain color, washable and durable fabric and this seems to be it. My dog and husband are on it constantly and give it hard wear – this seems to be good quality. It is well made and the size is as advertised. I am pleased enough that i bought two.

Seems like a decent product, but it the dimensions won’t cover a sofa. . Even though i returned this product, i don’t think it deserves a low star rating. It’s not that it is a bad product, it just doesn’t seem to be designed logically. To be fair, the title explains what this product is, a throw. This is not a fitted couch cover. The description also specifically states all the measurements. The problem is, that until you receive the product, you don’t realize how bad the dimensions are. The length was perfect for my couch, almost too long, but the width was the problem. I’m not sure whether i have an abnormal size couch, but 70 inches simply isn’t enough material to cover a couch top to bottom. If i draped the throw over the back, then i was left with an exposed bottom cushion.

Okay, firstly, in defense of this thing, the measurements are listed and accurate. Second, this thing is horribly too narrow for any sofa/couch made in the last couple of decades. The only way it could cover a couch is if the couch was against a wall. And even then i doubt it would stay on if the couch was sat on. I read other reviews and thought ‘surely they didn’t do it right. How can a sofa cover not fit a sofa?’. This is tons of fabric lengthwise but lacking about 4 feet, or more, of needed width to cover/stay on any normal sized sofa. I have no idea what sofa this could actually cover.

I bought two of these to cover completely the sofa. It is a deep red/wine color. As you can see in the picture, don’t expect it to stay perfectly in place😉.

Very disappointed in this couch cover. . The fabric is sturdy and the color is really beautiful. The length was perfect for my large couch, but the width was a problem. It barely covered the couch and i had only about two inches to drape down the back. I was lucky that i bought two covers. I had to put both on one couch and use my old cover on my second couch. I am going to cut the second cover and sew a piece on the other cover to make it hang down in the back like it should. I gave it only three stars because i am going to have to remake one cover to fit one couch and will have to buy a cover for the second couch.

This is exactly what i was looking for. Size was perfect for a 3 seat sofa (backed up to window- would be too small if back was in view). Fabric is a nice mix of poly and cotton, comfortable to sit on, but shouldn’t shrink or wrinkle too much when washed. Definitely recommend if you are trying to cover an ugly fabric (my use), or have stains, etc. Does slide a little bit, but i would rather re-position it than deal with a micro-fiber or rubbery backing.

10015 Gray 4’0x5’3 Area Rug Carpet Large New : The colors are so beautiful and vibrant

I’m very pleased and surprised this rug is of such great quality for the price. I purchased a 8×10 in gray area rug over the bright blue for our dining room and i’m happy with my decision. I wanted to brighten our dark dining area, but with only hints of color. I would love the bright blue for another area in our apartment, since that gorgeous aqua/turquoise color is throughout our home, but not dominating. The texture has a velvet feeling, seems like it will be easy to clean any spills as well as camouflage any small stains (lets hope). Within the 4hrs i positioned it under our dining table i’ve used ice cubes to help settle the curled end and it’s already flattening. I would cover our home with these rugs, they are just very happy, bright and lovely to look at. I will post pics once we’ve had it for several weeks to see how it continues to settle.

Pretty bright blue and with hot pink. I was looking for a turqoise rug to compliment coral chairs. More on the blue side but still pretty and soft under foot. Had a chemical smell for several weeks but finally aired itself out.

The colors are so beautiful and vibrant. I absolutely adore this carpet. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant, i have gotten many compliments on this carpet. The best being that my daughter wants it in her bedroom. I will order her one, possibly a different color combination. I have this one i my living room, which is currently done up in bright springtime colors. This carpet was the final touch and it is perfect. I purchased the 5’2 x 7’2 for my living room and the price was well worth it.

It’s a gorgeous rug thank you i love it. The red is a vibrant raspberry/orange the blue is like teal and that gray makes the colors pop.

Wish it came in an even larger size. Soft to touch and beautiful colors.Typical new rug smell, sprinkled lavender and vacuum, no smell. Rolls from packing have relaxed immediately.

The grey/blue option is gorgeous. This rug looks beautiful in my living room. I purchased the 7’10×10’6 grey-blue version of this rug and it perfectly matches my cool-toned grey couch and pale blue arm chair. I showed my in-laws and they were like, ‘wow, that looks like it was pricey’. But it’s my fun secret that it was less than $150. :-)the edge on one side is a bit frayed, but i really don’t think that is worth removing a star over. The rug is soft and feels great under bare feet, and the detail on it is incredible for the cost.

It’s a gorgeous rug thank you i love it. The red is a vibrant raspberry/orange the blue is like teal and that gray makes the colors pop.

I had a more earth toned rug at my last house, but when i moved i decided i needed more color in my life. There are so many amazing colors in this rug. So many things will go with it. Now i have throw pillows and blankets in all different colors as well. It’s been 6 months since i got it and it’s still really soft. I’m going to rotate it so the part that has been under my sectional will be out. Hoping it will wear more evenly this way and last a long time.If you’re wanting to add some more color in your life, buy this thing.

This rug is awesome–the colors are so vivid and beautiful. My only irritation was having to go pick it up because a signature was required and fedex only came by while we were at work. Luckily the rug helps make up for it.
