WE Furniture 52″ Highboy Style Wood TV Stand Console, NICE PIECE OF FURNITURE

It looks far more expensive than it actually is. It is sturdy, chic-looking, and the color and size are exactly as pictured and stated in the ad. Also, i used the amazon furniture assembly experts to put this piece together and they were wonderful. In fact, the young man that came to my home to assemble my furniture was professional, courteous and very patient with me and all of my questions (so happy with the assembly experts and will use them again). He assembled this piece in record-timeissue/con: i did have an issue with the sellers customer service. I contacted them on a number of occasions via email and phone with questions regarding delivery, to no avail. And future buyers should be aware that the delivery of this item is to the curb-side only if you are in a multi-level condo facility as i am. I actually had to pay someone to be on the lookout for the delivery truck and then pay someone else to bring the item (which is over 100 lbs) to my 3rd floor condo.

Nice looking unit but the access holes in the back panel need to be lower,just take a look at the picture and you will see what i mean. Be careful the unit marks easily and there is no touch up available from the manufacturer. I assembled it myself but it is advisable to have a second person to help,needs access holes on the lower shelf also if you are putting any components there i drilled my own but use a good sharp hole saw.

Packed well, arrived in perfect shape. Assembled easily with clear instructions. Looks like an expensive pottery barn piece.

Comments from buyers

“Great unit, fits 2 large cats., Very well packed, easy assembly, looks awesome in my bedroom, Beautiful stand!”

Could have been made better. The unit itself is perfect for my intended use, but the first one arrived damaged(sold by amazon) internally(not shippers fault, but packaging),which amazon made good on, due to the manufacturer(more like importer)not being able to supply just the two broken parts. I guess that they couldn’t predict when the next boat from china would be arriving. It wasn’t easy trying to pack up 150lbs of puzzle pieces to fit back into the original box. I would have liked it more, if it was made of more ‘real’ wood etc. It does require three people to fit the two major sub-assemblies together, or you risk breaking two items from stress of hanging weight.

I selected this item in part, because the open center section is wide enough for my large martin-logan center channel speaker, with room to spare in fact. While not an heirloom quality piece, this turned out to be an excellent choice. The quality of this item is excellent for a painted mdf piece, particularly now that i’ve compared to other manufacturers’ products. Once assembled, it’s very solid and easy to square up and align the doors. The base arrived pre-assembled and well reinforced, accounting for the solid feel of the completed cabinet. Hardware is good quality with extra quantity of most of the screws, cam-loks and dowel pins. My only complaint is with the little curved washers and tiny screws used to retain the glass in the frames.

Some of these put together yourself furniture can be cheap and flimsy. It is a very sturdy and nice looking piece of furniture. I put some stained glass window film on the doors and some flamless candles in the cabinets. It looks nice when the light flickers through the stained glass film. I did have to drill some holes in the back of the side and bottom cabinets which kind of surprised me. I would think that an entertainment center would have access for cords in all the cabinets. I wanted my equipment behind the doors, so i called my dad and he brought over his drill and circle cutter and zip zip zip i had cord openings. I also put those plastic sliders on the bottom so i could move it.

It’s exactly what i was looking for. Nice and tall and accommodates my flat screen tv. My boyfriend and i put this together in a couple of hours. Read instructions carefully. It’s not always clear which side of a panel to use or exactly where to place it and that makes a huge difference. We had trouble with the back panels. After nailing two pieces in we realized the orientation was off, and the spacing was off. We tried to fix it as best as we could but the end result is that one of the panels didn’t fit properly and is not flush with the rest of the back panels.

Nice tv stand – easily put together. Assembled this stand in about 5 hours by myself. My sweetie did help me stand it up to attach to the base. I’m one-of-those anal retentive males who read directions thoroughly, so it can probably be done quicker. The manufacturer has all parts and hardware labeled and the directions are for the most part easy to follow. Was shorted 1 screw for the hinges, with the other parts having 1 or 2 extra. Nice addition to our new home.

We’re using this console as a storage unit rather than a media stand. Wanted something that could hold a good amount of books/toys with some type of door closure. After much searching and reading of reviews, we decided on the we highboy. I have to admit i had some reservations after reading the reviews (condition of box after arrival, missing/damaged pieces, unclear instructions), but we needed something quick before the holidays. I’m happy to say overall we’re very pleased. The finished unit looks great and we received multiple compliments from friends and family. Box was damaged in a couple of places upon delivery, but there was a good amount of protective packaging so all pieces were intact. I wasn’t able to hold up my end, so my husband had to break open the box and we hand carried the pieces into the living room. Instructions aren’t the best (thus the 4 stars). We spent some time trying to determine the correct side to insert hardware for some pieces.

Great tv stand with some cheap hardware. I would have given the tv stand 5 stars if all the hardware included were better made. The cam locks which you twist around the cam bolts to secure panels were cheaply made. I broke a few of them in the process. I’ve put together furniture before using much stronger made cam locks. They also didn’t seem to grab onto the bolts securely. I ended up drilling some decks screws through the bottom, and used some small screw in metal brackets under the top of unit to make sure all was secure. The stand is well made and heavy duty. I bought it for a 60′ flatscreen tv, and to house a center speaker and 2 front shelf speakers for surround sould. It stands higher than most tv stands, which i like.

Best piece of furniture we have ever purchased. We love this entertainment centerups delivered this center to us, and man were they the worst. They delivered it to the wrong house and the box was torn up pretty bad.The entertainment center was so well packaged there were zero damages. Also the directions were soooo well explained. Every piece was labeled the letter/number and the front was labeled. Also the hardware was in its own box and when you opened it they were in individual bags labeled to when you would need themthis was hands down the best piece of furniture we have ever purchased. (including when we have bought furniture directly from a store) not to mention it’s a beautiful piece of furniturewe highly recommend it.

The pictures/descriptions does not do it justice. It is quite heavy, and does require assembly, but it looks and feels you paid a whole lot more than the price we did. We purchased the ‘expresso’ color, and it fits in our entertainment alcove perfectly; holds our components/game consoles and controls. We highly recommend this item if you need a console stand less than 52′ wide. It will support a larger tv. Just not in a small enclosure.

Packed well, arrived in perfect shape. Assembled easily with clear instructions. Looks like an expensive pottery barn piece.

Nice piece but cracked upon arrival. Not very hard to hard to put together. I gave t 3 stars because a lot of the finish is messed up in a lot of places. The biggest dissapoaintment is the front piece is cracked in half right out of the box .

Some quality issues, labor intensive assembly. Design could be more practical. . Finished product looks nice. Pictures are very representative. Our main issues were related to the delivery and minor quality issues. The delivery guy dropped the package at the garage and left without ringing the bell, so the box was wet by the time i got home. Also, the box was fairly severely damaged at mid point along the side. It’s a credit to the manufacturer’s packaging that none of the glass was broken, but the main top panel – the most visible surface of the whole pieces was badly bruised and chipped right in the middle of the front edge. As noted, packaging was very good, including particle board placed at the ends of the box to protect against damage. The instructions were clear and useful.

It is a beautiful piece of furniture. My wife is remodeling and this is her dream cabinet. It is very well made, very heavy, and has stood the abuse my three children have tossed at it. It is a beautiful piece of furniture. My only complaint was the directions, which at times was quite vague and confusing.

Great piece, not great customer service. . Not terrible to put together. We did have a thin long strip that was cracked in half. Called and left a detailed message for customer service to send out one on next business day or to call me. In the meantime, husband glued it and it worked. But importantly customer service never mailed out piece nor did they call us back. Also i buy lots of things on amazon.

Cabinet is sturdy, no scratches or other flaws. Assembly was about 2-1/2 hrs with a couple breaks to these old knees. The actual color was identical to picture, which does not always happen.

Very well packed, easy assembly, looks awesome in my bedroom. It took me quite some time to figure out a good tv stand for my bedroom. Also after reading the reviews for many other tv stands, i was quite skeptical about packing of the item, broken/scratched/missing parts, etc. But i’m very happy with what i got. Even if it wasn’t handled properly, the packing was good to save the product from damage. All parts were also individually packed and labelled. There were extra screws, dowels, locks, etc provided. So in case you lose one, you don’t have to run to the store to get one. Assembly instructions are well written and assembly itself is easy. Two people are required to assemble this product.
