Simpli Home Cosmopolitan Wide TV Media Stand : It worked however it will need some wood filler and stain to perfect the fix

Its nice to see a piece of furniture built out of. Its nice to see a piece of furniture built out of wood instead of glue and wood chips. Instructions were good enough, not great but i had no issues with them. Everything went together with out any problems, missing holes, pieces, etc. This was much better than i found in the furniture stores for 3x the price, it is a good deal.

Just got this stand put together, and it is super solid. This is not pressed wood like other high priced but cheap stands. It has many cam locked screws, allen head screws and dowels which make putting this together a breeze. It was fairly simple as long as you can follow directions and look at pictures. The stand itself was a little darker than i expected, but it still looks great. Packaging was very well done with foam protection, foam sheet protection, and double cardboard boxes it was shipped in, so the stand arrived unscathed. My only complain was that one of the screws on the drawer ended up busting the hole, but that didn;t bother me much because the other screws and dowels that the drawer required still made it a solid piece. If you’re on the fence about this stand, just know that they have improved their shipping (from what i read in other reviews) and the wood material is top notch.

Quality real wood furniture. . Great quality, real wood, and good hardware included. It does take a while to put together though. Not because it is hard but because it is tedious. All furniture is difficult to put together but when the furniture is actually wood it makes it easy to correct mistakes without breaking any parts. Nice size which makes it easy to add gaming systems, dvd players and more (has 2 spots dedicated for this purpose and you could add more to the top if needed. Glass doors add some class and make it easy to see anything added to the adjustable shelves inside (the large doors have one adjustable shelf, the small ones do not have an extra shelf).

It is not an easy piece to put together as it took me 7. Lots of screws, nuts and bolts. It fits together well and really looks great.

  • Quality real wood furniture.
  • Worth the extra bump in cost compared to $300 units
  • Nice quality, sturdy, looks great!

Nice quality, sturdy, looks great. This is a well-made product. The wood is very nice quality. The color is a little bit darker than what the photo shows on the product page. It is more like an espresso or black/brown. It would definitely complement black furnishings or antique furnishings. Some of the directions are not accurate. Luckily, my husband put this together and he is good with figuring these things out. For example, the diagram might show the notched shelf going in the opposite of how it really goes in. The doors too, do not match the actual diagram.

It was fairly easy to assemble although i needed a second person to. Purchased this media stand for our new 65″ tv. The color is a very dark brown. It was fairly easy to assemble although i needed a second person to help attach the doors. It is well made and doesn’t look cheap. My only complaint is we had a hard time fitting our receiver into the open shelf as it wasn’t high enough and we had to remove the receiver’s feet first in order to get it to fit.

Nice media stand, with one back draw. . Beautiful entertainment center and easy to assemble. The only problem i had, there were no predrilled holes for the big doors. Thank goodness for friends that can measure well.

Worth the extra bump in cost compared to $300 units. This tv stand met my expectations. It is not perfect, having some swirls and a slightly raised grain in one spot on the top surface. The tv should hide that spot (it will arrive in a few days). The finish is also somewhat easy to mar. However, for a solid wood unit the $500 price beats the $300 composite and laminated stands for sure. The wood is pine, meaning it will dent quite easily. But overall construction is very solid. Many joints use the typical cam and pin locking method, but wood screws are provided where it counts. We also glued each piece as we went.

It worked however it will need some wood filler and stain to perfect the fix. We left for a weekend and the top piece of wood split. My husband clamped it together to reinforce the woods memory. It worked however it will need some wood filler and stain to perfect the fix. Not sure if that is caused by non cured wood.

I searched out this product on the basis of it being solid wood as opposed to particle board. Set up took a little while, and two people definitely makes it easier. I experienced an issue where the top piece was cracked on the forward-facing lip. This was due to a screw being driven into the top too far during manufacture, causing the lip to split. Since there was no crack in the actual top of the piece, i continued assemly and emailed the manufacturer. Customer service was excellent and they shipped me a new top piece (after about a month). After having the piece for a year, i am still very happy that i purchased it. My tv has legs on the ends right over the stand’s legs, so i can’t comment on warping/sagging in the middle, though it does have a middle divider and a middle 5th “leg” underneath for support.

The assembled furniture frame is sturdy and looks nice. Received the product two days ago. This was the first time i ordered a large furniture on amazon. It was delivered in a large box. The product was well packaged and protected. It took me about 6 hours to assemble. The design is elegant and well thought. It is all wood with no particle board. The material appears to be soft pine wood. But you would not expect hardwood at this price point anyway.

Excellent item flawed by sub-standard critical parts and poor directions. This is actually a very attractive, sturdy tv cabinet. I give it only 3 stars for two reasons. 1) three of the cam-nuts broke on installation forcing a parts run. 2) the directions have the doors being installed before the top, this is simply wrong, the doors and shelves are installed last. In the case of the cam-nuts the root cause of the problem may be the too-small pilot holes for the pins. This causes them to drift when installed, leading to off-center mating with the cam nuts, though the nuts themselves are significantly weaker than the replacements i bought at ace hardware. I truly would caution anyone considering this item to have a source for cam-nuts available and to read the instructions with a practical eye.

This tv stand is the real deal. A solid piece of real furniture. Only four stars for the same reason someone here already commented on: it is a great buy, but do yourself a huge favor and install the flip drawer as soon as possible. If you follow the instructions and wait until the end. Or very difficult to install the flip down door. I assembled the stand alone with a screwdriver and an allan wrench. About the limit of my carpentry skill.

As it appeared in pictures and is of a good quality. There is a great deal of storage. The piece looks as it appeared in pictures and is of a good quality. There is a great deal of storage for the unit that provide a lot of options. It came packed to perfection with each individual piece wrapped in something and well cushioned on edges. The only problem i can confirm from other reviews is that it was a little more difficult to put together than i would have liked. Several pieces needed to have pre-drilled holes widened in order to properly secure screws. Overall i am very happy and would order it again if i knew then what i know now.

This is a very nice, expensive/custom-looking tv stand. This is a very nice, expensive/custom-looking tv stand. I don’t think that it’s completely real wood but it resembles a rich walnut so much that no one would know. We only installed one drawer and no doors because we felt that it looks more modern without the doors. We put a vizio 80′ tv on top and it fit and looks great. As some reviews said add the shelves later when you know what will go on them. It will take a while to inventory all of the parts. There are lots of different types of screws, hinges etc and someone in china forgot to drill the ‘pre-drilled’ holes for the backs. No problem we have a drill and drilled the holes ourselves. Also, if there are some little nicks one of those homax walnut repair pens will cover them up.

Excellent quality, solid wood, convenient for all devices and wires. Very pleased with this console. Perfect in our living room as attractive piece of furniture.

After multiple furniture store visits and searching online for the perfect tv console (is there such a thing as perfect??) my wife and i fell in love with the cosmopolitan wide tv stand. Ordered, assembly and setup was quick. As many have mentioned, the assembly takes 2-3 hours, depending on skill-set, finding tools and distractions. If you’re handy and take your time assembly will not be too much trouble. I did find that attaching the top (step 10) was easier with the unit standing upright, not laying on the back. Also for step 11, start with one of the outside pieces, then the top, center. Will fit perfect if done this way. I almost goofed on this step. During assembly i accidentally stepped on and broke one of the cam locks.

Had no problems with the shipping and putting it together. However, i was confused with the instruction booklet section in regards with the back panels, i was expecting pre-drilled holes to the frame but there weren’t none. I did them anyways, no problem, but latter i realize that the holes to the pieces of back panels are the guides for you to use the screws without pre-holing the frame. Customer support was very helpful and courteous.
