The sideboard/buffet is beautiful and once assembled, looks exactly like the photos. The finish is nice and evenly applied, solid (heavy) wood construction, instructions easy to follow (albeit lengthy.) My reasons for not awarding the fifth star...the feet arrived three days after the main sideboard/buffet. The feet are chosen separately from several design options. They are mailed in a separate box. It would have been nice to assemble the piece all together. If the feet can have design options, why not offer a hutch top to the possible configurations? I would have bought one with the hutch top and one without, to serve as the sideboard. Overall, it's a nice addition to my home.
Easy to Build and Looks great!
William from United States – Verified Buyer
The table came in two boxes. One big box for the table, and one small box for the legs. It rained a little bit the day the packages came. I was a little worried about the condition. However, the packaging was great. Not sure why others thought this was tough to put together. I did it in about 90 min by myself. Didn't need to even read the instructions. The pictures explain themselves. Make sure you have a power drill! Doing this by hand could take forever. If you have built furniture from Ikea, you can definitely build this without any problems.
Very nice piece of furniture, especially for the price
Karyn from Hendersonville, TN – Verified Buyer
After reading many reviews on various sites, I had some concerns about the finished product, but I am very pleased now that it is assembled. My husband and I expected it to come in many parts based on other reviews, and it did take about 2 hours to put it together. Some mentioned the finish being poor, but ours is very nice and the color matches the picture (mahogany finish). It is wood veneer, but it is very heavy and sturdy. Overall it is a great, functional piece that is a nice addition to a dining room. Pros: very good quality for the price Cons: it does require full assembly
LaFayette Sideboard / Buffet
Ithalia from Brooklyn, NY – Verified Buyer
I love this in my dining room. It is exactly as shown in the picture. Not only is it beautifully finished with quality wood but assembly was a breeze. The instructions were easy to follow and when my husband who inspects all parts meticulously found a damaged minor piece it was delivered within 2 days after we called. This is a great value and I highly recommend it.
Bea from Summerville, SC – Verified Buyer
We have just purchased a new home. . .and after much searching for a buffet for in our dining room. . .my daughter suggested I try "Wayfair". Had no idea who "Wayfair" was, but got online with her at my side and within MINUETES found the exact model and color that we wanted!! It arrived promptly and I love the "no shipping". Thankfully, my husband is a former Industrial Arts teacher who could assemble it. . .and we love it!! The style, color and price were all perfect. So much so. . .that I have now ordered 2 side chairs to use in my dining room as well. . of course, from Wayfair!! I think I will be a "regular" satisfied customer. Thank you Wayfair!!
laura from Micigan
I am less than impressed with this product, however, I wanted to write a review because I was EXTREMELY impressed with Wayfair's customer service. I ordered this buffet table on Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday! There are a ton of pieces but overall the assembly was pretty straightforward. The issue with the assembly was that MANY of the pieces were flawed. Majorly flawed. Many pieces didn't fit together and made it impossible for us to continue. The camlocks were very cheap and some actually snapped in half when trying to secure them. We got to a point where we couldn't go any further because of the flawed parts so I went online that night (probably about 8 pm) and requested replacements for the parts that were flawed and unusable. I had an email from Wayfair the next morning saying that the replacement parts were requested from the factory! Later, I got another email from Wayfair explaining that the factory was not able to ship out the parts so they were sending out an entire new unit! We received the new unit the NEXT DAY! This was a relief because the semi-assembled table and laid out parts were all over our dining room rom our first attempt. We were able to construct the buffet table with usable parts between the two units we had. Still, one of the camlocks ripped through the wood and there is a hole with the camlock exposed, thankfully on the back of the unit! The wood split in one area but thankfully it is covered but the lip of the top. Also, the holes for the door hinges were on the complete opposite side of where they should be, and one hole was completely non-existant so we had to drill holes to be able to put the doors on. Overall, the table feels unsteady and while it looks nice against the wall, it was a huge pain and I don't think it was worth the $400. As I said, I would definitely order from Wayfair again as the customer service was the best I have experienced online, however, I will never order furniture by Crosley again!
Pretty Good for an Economy Cabinet
Steven from williamsburg, VA
The vast majority of this cabinet is MDF (medium density fiberboard) an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers. So any claims of selected hardwood are a stretch, unless they mean the hardwood shredded to make the MDF. Customer service is excellent, and you'll likely need it. This unit is heavy and the panels shift in the packaging, even though the packaging is quite good. So, breakage of join blocks is likely. Check every piece and then call Wayfair. They ship replacements fast. A couple of minor omissions from the instructions, but not too bad. Count on 2.5 - 3.5 hours. It can be done by one person who is handy. Many pieces, but all are well labeled and the hardware comes in a well marked package, so you probably won't be missing hardware. The finished product looks pretty good (we got the black). Any nicks can be covered with a furniture marker. The pieces went together surprisingly well with only moderate trial and error. Once completed, you have a reasonable $350 cabinet - not a $1000+ cabinet and not even a $750 cabinet. Its size, appearance, quality and price work for us. Delivery is fast. Customer service is great. I would recommend it for what it is, but not if you are looking for a fine piece of ready-made furniture.
Black Buffet w/ drawers
Kimberly from Broken Arrow, OK – Verified Buyer
I ordered this despite a few bad reviews, and am glad I did. Ordered for my hair salon to use as stations, and my husband glued these together to be more sturdy, and they're great! Did not have any shipping issues, although one came with an odd white colored drawer slide, but it doesn't show. The legs came in a separate box/shipment. All shipping was very timely.
Eric from Cincinnati, OH – Verified Buyer
We like the sideboard a whole lot. It fits nicely in our dining room. Assembly was tedious, but not complicated. If you pay attention it should not be a problem. I did have a few pieces with damage, but nothing that can been seen from the outside. One of the drawer bottoms had some water damage and there was a couple small scratches on the underside of the top that you can only see if you look at them from underneath. Not a bad piece of furniture overall for the price, just don't expect perfection.
Beautiful and functional
Kari from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
This is a beautiful piece of furniture, and just what we needed in our small condo. I only rated it a four because of the difficulty we had in assembling it. We actually had to take it all apart when we realized we had put on the shelf that you attach the doors to upside down. But other than that, we love it and are very glad we purchased it. We bought the black, and it flatters our other wood finishes just fine. The wine rack isn't particularly the best, as the bottles aren't snug and roll around, but it's still an amazing piece of furniture for the price.
