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.
