Simpli Home Artisan TV Media Stand : Very nice so far prior to assembly.

Deserves a 5+ – simply a super product and great value. I very rarely give anything 5 stars, but this clearly deserves it. This is a quality piece of furniture, not some particle board (or worse) jigsaw puzzle covered in contact paper. The fit and finish are showroom quality and, once assembled, you can’t tell the difference in this and something you purchased factory-assembled at a furniture store for at least 2-3 times the cost. It arrived in excellent condition due to extremely effective packaging (and note the glass in its doors). Though it took me a while to assemble it (because i took extra care), i have never seen instructions so accurately, clearly, and helpfully written. Not only were all parts included (and clearly and unambiguously coded), but a whole separate bag of extra parts was, too. This is a first class product all the way around and i couldn’t possibly be more satisfied.

Great all around piece of furniture. . I would have rated this as 5 stars were it not for a minor (but fixable) problem. I read many of the reviews for this item prior to purchasing it. First, it looks incredible, and for the price it’s hard to beat. Once put together it is solid, handsome and looks like a “real” piece of furniture. Certainly the pine wood is soft and susceptible to minor scratches, but it’s real wood and solid throughout the piece (even the backing). First the shipping was fast and the piece arrived without a scratch to alaska which was a real bonus. Many of the reviews mentioned some difficulty in building this piece. Certainly to the average person with little or no carpentry skills some of the aspects were challenging. However with a firm knowledge of basic tool use, etc it was very easy to build and quite sturdy.

We purchase this stand for a recessed area in our living room. It fits beautifully and the unit looks great and is very functional. It has open shelves for cable box and other components and glass in doors to provide additional storage as well as 2 drawers for manuals, extra remotes or whatever.It is very sturdy – putting it together definitely took 2 people and the better part of a morning to complete. The instructions were missing but amazon customer service was able to provide us a link to the manufacturer site and instruction manual. We would have given this 5 stars if directions were included and because there were a couple cam locks that did not work well. The packaging was dented and not wrapped with plastic bands to hold the box together – only tape. Fortunately nothing was damaged. All in all it is a lovely stand and i would recommend.

Perfect tv stand for our bedroom, but. We just purchased this unit and put it together yesterday. It does take some time to put together, but the directions (for the most part) were fairly easy to follow. While the piece is solid wood, it is a pine, and the finish, while nice, is not perfect, however, for our bedroom the overall look of the unit really adds a nice touch. Having said that, we are experiencing some issues with the drawers, nothing we can do will line up the drawers so that they slide in and out. I have a call into the company right now and am waiting to hear back from them. At this point i told my husband that we should just remove the rails on the inside and have two open areas in the middle (put two baskets maybe in the opening instead. )there was a damaged piece, called yesterday and they are sending a replacement (did not effect the assembly). And there is a front piece that runs along the bottom of the front that is not firmly attached on the left side as you look at the unit, we are thinking of using some wood glue as a fix. Overall it is a nice, though far from perfect unit.

  • Wood (pun intended) by again
  • Great quality, beautiful piece!
  • Very nice so far prior to assembly.

Great quality, beautiful piece. It took my husband about an hour and a half to assemble. The only reason i didn’t give it 5 stars is because there were a couple of breaks in the wood when it arrived. Luckily they were on the bottom of pieces that could not be seen so we didn’t have to do any returns. The item itself is sleek, contemporary and very nice. We also bought the coffee able and plan to purchase the sofa table.

A stand that will last a long, long time. After reading the majority of the reviews posted here, i was quite nervous about ordering this cabinet. Between the complaints over color, and packaging i was expecting to receive splinters. But, being the typical person who has their mind made up to have this stand. Let me tell you, i was so glad i didyes, it is much darker than the picture but that is the only drawback. This is not a flimsy piece of furniture. It weights in at 107 pounds. I have never seen a better protected product. There was no room for movement. Every piece was secure between protective wrapping making it impossible for scratching or braking. Two people are required to assemble it. The pieces are nicely labeled. What really impressed me was the bag for the hardware.

This media center certainly exceeded my expectations. I was hesitant to purchase due to price and not seeing it in person, but i am beyond happy with my purchase. Quick to assemble (45 mins). The color (gray) is beautiful.The drawers work perfectly for storing gaming console remotes. The media shelves in the middle are fabulous; i had enough room to fit a cable box, bluray player, xbox, and router. I am happy most about the quality. This is not a cheap particle board piece.

I saw older feedback that said it wasn’t packaged well, but i didn’t find that to be the case at all. The wood stain was darker than we wanted, so we sanded and painted it before assembling. The cabinet looks great under our big screen television.

This is a very nice peice of furniture. I just had a baby and i am fighting the video game clutter. I don’t want to go shopping with a new born. So i was hopping amazon would have something. This has plenty of room for games and various consoles.

Very nice so far prior to assembly. . As described it is quite heavy but manageable. I opened the box to find things well packaged and laid everything out to check that all parts were accounted for. The hardware includes some extra pieces which might prove useful. Only 2 minor dings which if hidden after assembly i won’t bother with. Update:assembly complete with the help of my 4 year old. Instructions are well written and easy to follow. Don’t be afraid of the door assembly page it looks like it might be a challenge but everything is laid out to make the home stretch well worth it. Pros for assemblyeasy to follow instructions. All parts well labeledextra parts bag although i did not need anyall predrilled holes are expertly placedi used a manual screwdriver per the directions and with a good philips it was not too exhaustingalthout the unti weighs over 80lbs it was easy for me to set it upright and manipulate during assembly. Cons for assemblynot much to say hereonly a few pilot holes were drilled for the thin backing parts so i drilled them myself. Not ever sure you need to pilot drill but i did to be safe and avoid any splitting.

Wood (pun intended) by again. I had searched for months looking for a media stand to fit the awkward space i had in my living room in weathered grey. After searching the stores and finding nothing, i found this online. Still, it took me months to actually place the order, because i wanted to see something in person. It was taken out of my hands by my daughter who tried to do a push-up on the door of our existing cabinet (oddly enough, the door ripped off 😂). Anyway, i love this cabinet. First, the packaging and condition of my piece was perfect. I put the whole thing together in about 1. I know my way about a cordless screwdriver, and know what a hexkey is.

Real wood / very nice quality. Better packaging would make it five stars. . Pro: soild wood construction , not ikea materials , but ikea style assembly. Wasn’t that difficult to assemble. All the hardware bags are separated and clearly labeled and marked for the function they provide. Finish over all is better than photo shows , almost furniture grade. Well packaged for the most part, but unit was slightly damaged in a few areas as others have noted. Would have been five stars if not for the damage. Damage to one of the corners as others have noted.

Nice looking entertainment center. I recently purchased this entertainment center and was very excited when i first received it because i liked the look and the fact that it’s a taller stand. I received it in a very timely manner, which i was extremely happy about. As i unwrapped the contents of the box each piece seemed to be in good condition; no visible damage, no missing parts. It seemed to be easy enough to put together with a decent amount of screws, although i was not satisfied with the quality of the cam locks and pins because they strip easily. I assembled the unit about 85% before realizing that the top was on backwards. When i turned the top around and attempted to reattach it to the base none of the holes lined up. I would have had to drill new holes in order to attach. Then when i went to attach the doors i realized that the holes for the magnet were set too far back and the door would not stay closed. At this point i disassembled the unit and called for a replacement, which amazon was happy to provide.

Great quality, beautiful piece. It took my husband about an hour and a half to assemble. The only reason i didn’t give it 5 stars is because there were a couple of breaks in the wood when it arrived.

Nice cabinet, but assembly can be a bit frustrating. I like the style of the cabinet. Putting it together took a while and there is something not quite right – probably a mistake i made somewhere, so i will have to undo it at some point and backtrack. Lefts and rights are labeled on some pieces, but not others. Things fit together in more than one way. For example, there are predrilled holes at the top and bottom of the doors for the magnetic strike plates – which way is up?. Both doors are labeled f, two e sides, etc. A little more confusing than it should be. Some parts were not labeled at all. Easy to figure out which part it is using the shape and the diagram to guide me, but it would have been nice if they had labeled fronts/backs, lefts/ rights, ups/ downs to avoid a few undo/redo.

    I am very satisfied with this furniture. I am very satisfied with this furniture. So far, i have assembled two nightstands and the tv media stand, and i agree with other reviewers who feel that the quality of both the packaging and the components, plus the ease of assembly, allow you to end up with quality furniture for a very reasonable price plus a little elbow grease. The only reason i did not give this furniture 5 stars is because of the color. I ordered medium auburn brown, but there is nothing medium or auburn about it. The background color has shades of reddish-purple, as you would find in a dark mahogany, with no hint of any orangey tones, as you might expect from the word “auburn”. The finish has many blackish streaks, so overall the pieces look very dark.

    My equipment fits nicely into the openings. This stand is very attractive and functional. My equipment fits nicely into the openings. It arrived at the designated time and was packaged well. It was relatively easy to assemble and the instructions were very good. It did arrive with minor damage, the small wheels on the bottom of the two drawers have plastic rollers and they were broken. The drawers still inserted properly, they just don’t roll out as smoothly as i would like. There were some minor problems with how the holes had been pre-drilled and he had to re-drill them in order to make some parts fit. It was not a big deal if you have two tools: a drill and a husband who knows how to do everything.
