Looks great, but...
MPM from Vancouver, WA – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
Looks fab when finished, but comes in a million pieces. Expect to spend at least 3 hours on it if you are assembling by yourself. It took me an hour just to unpack it, tons of different packing materials to be sorted...trash, recyclable, reusable, trash....bit of a pain. But anyway, color is exactly what I wanted. The veneer is extremely thin. They place stickers on it so you know how to assemble, and when you try to remove the stickers, the veneer comes off with it, so be careful. The drawer bottoms are just cardboard, so nothing heavy can go in them. The piece itself is extremely heavy. On the whole, I think it's a great deal - got the look I wanted for a reasonable price. One must expect less than perfection when you purchase discounted replica style furniture. I will however be extremely careful not to allow the top to get wet when serving drinks on this bar because the veneer has already proven very delicate. Would still recommend it to others.
Nice looking piece.

When the product arrived, the side pieces (2) were destroyed during shipping (UPS). I called the customer service number at Crosley furniture and spoke with Sarah, who was very helpful. Received the second shipment of the two side replacement pieces and they too were damaged heavily during shipment, even though they were bubble wrapped quite extensively. That tells me how poorly UPS was treating the packages! Called and spoke with Sarah again, who again was very nice and reordered the two side pieces I still needed. On the third try I received two good pieces. It took about 2 1/2 hours to put together and when finished it looks great. Assembly instructions need to be better. You will need a rather large area to lay out all the parts for assembly to ensure you don't scratch any pieces. We are very pleased with our sideboard and I would have given it a 5 rating except for the obvious need for better packing due to rough handling by UPS.
Crosley Alexandria SideboardBuffet
Raquel from Woodbridge, VA – Verified Buyer
This was my first purchase from Wayfair and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but needless to say I was very satisfied with my purchase. It shipped quickly, for free, and the product arrived with zero dings, chips, or other shipping woes. The color is lovely and goes perfectly with our cherry dining set. I was worried it wouldn't be red enough (the picture looks darker than the actual product), but it matched nearly perfectly, which was great. My boyfriend did the assembling, and this is his take on it, It was easy to assemble, it just took a long time. The pictures on the directions weren't always good enough I had to figure out the orientation of some of the pieces by thinking through the entire project because the picture didn't tell me which side of the piece was facing forward, and which was facing away. It ended up working out okay in the end, but I'd say that it was about 85-90 goodeasy. I think it looks fantastic though - that is a huge plus. So I think it was well worth the time to assemble. The reason we are giving it 4 stars is the slightly long build-time. Other than that, though, we are extremely satisfied with the product. It is well made and of excellent quality with a beautiful finish. We'll definitely be shopping at Wayfair again.
Exactly what I wanted.
Richard from Waco, TX
This buffet was exactly what I wanted for my home wine bar. I like the selection of finishes, and that the price was about $100 cheaper than any other online seller. Item arrive in just a few days and all the parts were there and there was no damage. Quality of the unit is very good and the color and finish is exactly as pictured. I put the unit together myself in about 3 hours after spending about an hour studying the assembly instructions and identifying and sorting all the parts I am now waiting for a granite top I am having made locally to match the other granite in my house. I am also having a friend make some wine bottle racks to go behind the doors on each side.
very nice piece
Shea from Roslindale, MA
The price was unbeatable and once assembled the piece looks great. Luckily my husband is an engineer who misses his days of Legos so this was a fun project for him, but as other reviews not there is quite a bit of assembly required - like ALL of it. The only issue I have is that the bottoms of the drawers are very flimsy, no big deal if you’re going to put napkins, napkin rings etc. in there but don’t plan on putting anything too heavy. Also my husband had to glue one of the drawers because it would not come completely together without that help. But you don’t see it so no one will ever know. Overall a great piece and I would highly recommend.
Lots of pieces to assemble
Amie from Granite Bay, CA – Verified Buyer
Box was so heavy I had to take it puece by piece to get it inside the house to assemble. Part the support (particle board block on the base of the unit) was broken but was able to glue it back in place. Lots of choice words on assembly but once assembked, it was well worth it. Beautiful. Four stars due to broken particle board support. Wpuld recommend to a friend who doesn't mind extensive assembly.
Crosley Alexandria Sideboard
Cheryl from Wakefield, RI
This piece of furniture looks great in pictures and from a distance - just not so perfect up close. The side panels are very thinly veneered and one of the sides actually has areas near the top with no veneer) ... of course it is on the side that opens to the room. That said, the piece is quite sizable and is a good value for the price. Also, be aware that when you order the Crosley Alexandria piece, it is billed and described as a "Seychelles Sideboard" -- but when it arrived, it was in fact, the Crosley name on the box. It was a little confusing.
Betty from Chesapeake, VA – Verified Buyer
We really like this sideboard and it fits perfectly into our dining room. Putting it together was very time consuming, but without complications. However, we were missing pieces or had doubles of pieces. Check the pieces very carefully before you begin. We had to contact the company twice for pieces and although they were very accommodating, it took extra time to receive the pieces and left us with our living room in disarray for longer than anticipated.
Kira from Lowell, IN – Verified Buyer
This sideboard came very well packaged and was even double boxed to prevent damage during shipping! The item itself is very solid, and pretty easy to put together as the instructions were very descriptive and all the pieces were included! Make sure to pay attention as to when to use the longer wood dowls, otherwise, very simple. Assembly took about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Once assembled, the piece is very attractive, sturdy and something I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a nice sideboard! Also, the color is exactly as it was in the picture so I wasn't disappointed there!!!
Seychelles Sideboard Cabinet--Perfect Match
Karen from Carmel, IN – Verified Buyer
I'd always wanted one of these, and through a need for more storage space, took a chance and ordered this sideboard. It is beautiful. I assembled it myself and am so very pleased with it. I love to just walk in my dining room, and turn on the light and admire it! (Its a working sideboard, and storing many more things inside now), but, I couldn't be more happy with it. Its quality will definitely make me check Wayfair out then next time I need something ! Thank you so much for offereing such a beautiful piece of furniture, at an incredible price.
