Baxton Studio Pascal Plastic Mid-Century Modern Shell Chair : Great! (especially for the price)

We just got the chairs today and i have to say, really great product for a knock off. They are matte white, but i knew this and was ok with it. They assembled easy, except for one bolt on one chair(we bought 4). My husband was able to get it in but he thought he was going to have to bust out his tap and die set to clean up the thread inside the chair. Luckily he was able to get it in without resorting to that. All the other bolts went in fine. They are extremely comfortable and i love how deep set they are so my toddler can sit in them easily. Obviously the trained eye can tell they are knock offs, but i actually like the look of these better than the metal base eames.

Great – but get some loc-tite too. The chairs are great – easy to assemble, nice to sit in (as i’m typing). But the bolts that keep the chair affixed to the base slowly work themselves loose after you move around in the chair for a day-or-so. A little ‘thread-lock’ like loc-tite worked wonders to resolve that problem. After spending 2 minutes a day retightening the chair every couple of days. I’ll probably buy more in the future tho’. I’ve still got plenty of loc-tite lift.

Baxton Studio Pascal Plastic Mid-Century Modern Shell Chair, Red, Set of 2

  • Mid-century modern shell chair (arm chair design)
  • Red molded plastic shell seat
  • Steel hardware with black coating and wooden dowel legs
  • Non-marking feet

Baxton studio fiorenza chair. I just received my chairs and i couldn’t be happier. They were packaged carefully and were so simple to put together. Literally 4 screws inserted and they’re ready for use.How anyone could not be happy with the quality and presentation of these chairs for the price is beyond me. No, they’re not the actual ‘eames’ version made of fiberglass. They’re formed plastic but still very good quality. I’m using them as guest chairs in my office and they’re perfect. I must say the customer service with amazon was above and beyond.I had a mix up (my fault) with the shipping and they quickly corrected my mistake and they arrived on time.

I only needed one to use as a desk chair in my new office but we love them so much the second is being used as extra seating in the living room. Great versatile chair that can easily go from room to room over the years as your style changes. One thing i will say that i was not expecting is the plastic of the chair is sort of an odd texture. I guess i was expecting smooth and shiny. But in the end i prefer the matte effect of the texture. And they are surprisingly comfortable as well which was a huge added bonus.

I got these to use as side chairs in my living room and couldn’t be happier. I wish i had the money for real ones but i paid $120 for the 2 chairs, real ones are ~$450 each. Assembly was straight forward and easy. They flex a little at the top of the back if you really lean back hard but they flex right back. They’re surprisingly comfortable considering they’re hard plastic chairs, i’ve sat in one for a while and had no complaints. If you have a need for some stylish chairs and can’t (or don’t want to) spend $450 a chair on the real ones, these are fantastic. Everyone that’s come over compliments them and i’m very happy with the look.

Baxton Studio Pascal Plastic Mid-Century Modern Shell Chair, Red, Set of 2 : As some of the other reviewers posted, it is indeed an amazing chair for the price. Very quick to assemble and arrived packaged with care. They are plastic and white (i was hoping for a more ivory/cream but they are white) and if you look closely you may be able to tell they are not more expensive. But overall it raises the cool factor of the room and definitely mimics the eames look very well. I am super happy with the product. The one less star is because i am a new owner and not sure about it’s durability and weight considerations (i am petite and average height so am concerned if it can take weight for slightly bigger people) but i guess i’ll just wait to find out.

Modern style at a price that an average family can afford. These chairs look fabulous, just as they are pictured. They’re sturdy & easy to assemble. For those of us who love modern design but can’t afford four hundred bucks for a chair, these fit the bill nicely. The only thing i was surprised by was the feel of the seat of the chair. I was expecting a smooth fiberglass feel, but they are molded plastic & they feel like it with a sort of ‘orange peel’ texture. This is not a problem for me, just pointing it out fyi. I’d definitely recommend these to a friend.

I’ve had these chairs for a week now and so far i love them. I’m tall stocky guy and i have no problem with them, in fact just like another reviewer said, these chairs will have you sitting in proper posture but it is comfortable. My one piece of advice is that since they are white some items will mark them, like my new pair of jeans that left a blue mark where i was sitting, so just know that you will need to clean them since white shows everything. Clean white eraser sponge, it works great.

ClosetMaid 8937 Cubeicals 9-Cube Organizer : Used for gaming! 12 cube shelf organizer.

I purchased this to hold all my gaming systems and paraphanelia. My boyfriend and i put it together. Took about 30 minutes (including a snack break). The instructions were simple. When it was all built and done it seemed wobbly side to side, but once i moved it into where i wanted it and filled it up it seemed better. Plus how often do you wiggle around a thing like this. It holds my 32 inch flat screen and my xbox one console on the top and various consoles in the cubes. It really helped de-clutter and added more floor space.

I like this for my purposes. I like this for my purposes. It is sturdy enough to hold my smaller tv. I did not anchor it to the wall but i don’t have small children so i am not too worried. The cubes are not quite wide enough to fit my ps3 or ps4 but not a huge deal. None of the pieces came damaged. That they only provide back panels for half of the cubes, meant to be staggered. Since i used fabric bins, this is not a problem, but i’m not sure why they wouldn’t include the option for all 6 cubes. It does not look great without the bins inside.

ClosetMaid 8937 Cubeicals 9-Cube Organizer, Espresso : I kept delaying the assembly of this cube organizer because i usually find these type of assembly projects to be very frustrating. Now i have procrastinators remorse. This was very easy to assemble & probably took me 20min or less. It’s pretty sturdy & i bought the closetmaid 3880 cubeical fabric drawers which fit perfectly.

Pretty good for organization. Nice and sturdy, very easy to assemble and perfect for my small studio apartment. I left off the back panels because i’m using it as a shelf for video game consoles and i want the cords to go out of the back. It fits a wii u, a ps3 and all of my books. My only complaint is that a few of the wooden dowels used to secure the middle partitions were broken and splintered. I was still able to assemble the shelves but it made it a bit more difficult. Overall a good value product.

Only issue i saw was the screws doesn’t go in all the way. Works well for the price paid.

Seemed like a product someone else had returned but looks nice where i want it. . I bought these cubeicals in 2 different sizes. I got the 8 cube and the 6 cube. Although they’re made by the same company i found that the 6 cube had simpler to understand instructions and was packaged better. The instructions seemed like they were written by totally different companies and honestly with the 8 cube one i just abandoned the instructions and figured it out. There was also a lot of mess and flakiness to this one. I almost started to wonder if it’s one that someone returned because it was just a hot mess out of the box. But it’s together and it looks great. Some of the boards that nail to the back were bent up but everything else was ok. Went together just fine and fits perfectly where i need it.

Dorel Living Faux Marble Lift Top Storage Coffee Table : Had a scratch on the table top covered up with permanent marker

Had a scratch on the table top covered up with permanent marker. Table seems well made, very sturdy. Assembly was easy, the only thing you have to assemble are the legs. The lift top stays in place when lifted up and it goes back down very easy. I took two stars off because after dusting one day i noticed what looks like a scratch about the size of a nickle that was ‘covered up’ with a permanent marker on the table top. I checked the rest of the table to see if there were any other marks like this, but it’s the only one. I don’t know if this was a table that someone returned and that person used the marker or if it was the company that did. Either way, that seems pretty cheap to me.

Came quickly and easy to set up.

Dorel Living Faux Marble Lift Top Storage Coffee Table, Black

  • Lift-Up top, storage coffee table with solid wood base
  • Faux marble surface on the table top
  • Constructed of solid wood and wood veneers
  • Table top lifts with a mechanical hinge
  • Hidden storage compartment underneath

Packaging and assembly mess. Table top supposedly was already screwed to brackets. It arrived and all 10 screws for the top were scattered loosely and embedded into the styrofoam packaging and not connected at all. Had to tear apart all of the foam and box to find all of the screws and only found 8. The screws were junk i found out and instead of most likely having to reenforce the top to the brackets in the future. I went to store and bought a pack to screw it all together. Checked directions and it even said the top was already screwed to the brackets and all i had to do was attach the legs which wasn’t the case. Other than that packaging mess, table is decent and looks nice. Very firm and smooth when opening and closing. Can do one handed and doesn’t tip even without anything stored in the table but stuff on top. Raises up and in about 12 inches give or take.

Pretty good considering the price. Was a little skeptical when reading reviews on this, but here are my thoughts: it arrived relatively light and in a box with 2 pieces, top/body and the legs. Extremely easy to put together (thank god) the marble top is actually very classy, doesn’t look too cheap. Just be aware that it is top heavy, so if you pull it up all the way and then put any more pressure on it than your elbow, it’s going to tip on you. My solution is to not pull it up all the way and just lightly use it for my laptop or taking notes. Also, there is storage inside the table – awesome – but you have to make sure everything is in the center of the storage area or else the table won’t close all the way. Other than that i’m so glad i bought this for my first adult-y apartment.

Really happy with this table and it looks good in my living room. Rest assured, the table ships with the lifting mechanism pre-assembled, all you have to do is bolt on the legs. The faux marble top is attractive and looks and feels like real marble, don’t know what it’s actually made of. It has become my living room dining table in my apartment. I’d definitely purchase a second one for my second bedroom where my stereo and x-box + tv are set up. Under top space is great for remotes, etc.

Dorel Living Faux Marble Lift Top Storage Coffee Table, Black : A few things i wish i would have known. I have had this table for a few months now and it has treated me really well. It caters well to my bachelor living room by being fashionable and functional to my weeknight dinners in front of the tv. There are however two concerns i wish the reviews had given me a heads up on before purchasing:1) the table is very difficult to raise up and down. The table’s legs are so light that when you simply lift the top the legs come with it, so you have to hold both ends and pry the two sides a part. For the first month or so i mostly needed another person to help me lift it because i was afraid of breaking the fake marble top (it would start to significantly bend). It is easier to lift apart now after a few months of breaking it in but i still wish that it were a bit less difficult. 2) this is a petty one, but the faux marble top has a wicked glare. The entire picture on the tv reflects crystal clear into my eyes as i’m watching. I’m used to it by now but it bothered me a lot at first.

This table has changed my life. I live in a one bedroom apartment and there isn’t alot of room for a full dinette. I mostly eat out so the need for a big dinning space wasn’t necessary. This table was perfect for what i needed. Now i can have a place to eat comfortably that doesn’t take up space. It was super easy to put together. It is made from heavy solid wood materials and the faux marble is extremely elegant looking (without the elegant looking price) i did have to place some heavy books in the storage area under the table top in-order-to stabilize the table for use when it is open. (however, this was primarily because i do alot of work at the table now) in conclusion, the table was exactly what i was looking for and was easy to assemble and arrived quickly.

Great table for using a laptop sitting on the couch. . Happy with my table after lowering it. When it came, with the top fully extended, it was much too high for my use which is working a laptop sitting on the couch. I ended up cutting 2 1/2 inches off the bottom of the legs and actually raised my couch around 3 inches and now everything is comfortable. The legs are wood so they’re easy enough to saw on a miter saw or something. The table doesn’t seem to be in any danger of toppling over fully extended. As i type on it now, it has a tiny bit of wobble in it side to side but it to me is tolerable, i’ve had worse wobble in tables before. The top marble finish is just laminated on but it does look nice and shiny. On the underside i noticed out of the box it was starting to curl a bit so i got some black electrical tape and just sealed those curls down to prevent them getting caught and potentially ripping the finish off. So pretty easy preventative fix to that problem and the tape is on the underside so can’t be seen at all.

Great quality and looks really nice. Fooled more than one friend into thinking it was marble lolwhen lifted up it stays up, and i use it to eat or place a laptop. Have not had any issues with table tipping over like some. The storage is not to large, i use it to hold coasters / remotes / gaming controllers. The only complaint i have is that when fully lifted (you cant use it only partially lifted) it seems too high for my couch. I am 5’10 and when sitting upright, it comes up to my upper chest / throat.

It arrived in good condition and was easy to assemble. I’m so thrilled with this coffee table. It arrived in good condition and was easy to assemble. Look at the other reviewer pictures because those helped me make my decision to buy. It’s a cheap table that looks so nice and expensive.

I’m not usually one to write a bad review, mostly because i’ve never had major problems with products ordered. This one however warrants an explanation to others who may purchase this product. First off, it’s a nice coffee table. It looks nice, is sturdy, and definitely adds a sophisticated touch to our living room, but it is by no means a great coffee table. We had our first one arrive and when we took it out of the box, we could hear the sounds of screws hitting metal and sliding around in the box. When we took the table portion out, we found that the screws came from the metal attachment that connects the faux marble top to the black base of the coffee table on one side. It seemed that during shipping, the table was jarred around which caused the screws to become loose and fall out. The screws couldn’t be reattached because the holes had been stripped, which we attributed to the jarring. We purchased new, bigger screws, which allowed us to get a more secure fit; however, when we flipped the table over to the correct side, the table wouldn’t close level and had 0.

Received my coffee table today. Be advised: the faux marble top is supposed to be pre-attached to the lift mechanism. You should only have to attach the legs. Unfortunately that was not the case with my table. Somehow all 10 screws that attach the top to the lift mechanism had been torn out. (i could only find 6 of them in the packing material. ) i had to use 10 somewhat large screws, (not longer. You would risk going though the faux marble top. ) re-attaching the top was a pain in the neck but eventually accomplished.

I love this table and love that it has hidden storage space. It looks great with my living room furniture and is the perfect size. It was really easy to assemble, the only thing you have to do is screw the 4 legs to the top. Its not real marble but it looks real good and elegant. The mechanism to raise the top is awesome and does the job great.

Which aren’t the worst thing to have ever happened. I’m giving it 3 stars because as others complained it did arrive broken. The wooden frame for the lift top was broken, the wood was split and we had to glue it back together and let it dry for more than 24 hours before we could even put it together. Then as we were putting it together we noticed that one corner or the lift top itself was also damaged. Aside from these problems, which aren’t the worst thing to have ever happened, it is a nice table. It’s a little high for using a lap top on but it’s about right for eating, reading, signing papers, and other miscellaneous needs. As far as appearance it looks really nice and much more expensive than in the pictures. It’s pretty much worth what i paid, but the stress and hassle of having to fix it before we could put it together drag down the rating for me.
