Great piece of furniture!
Elizabeth from Chicago, IL
First of all, I ordered this island on Monday morning and it arrived on Tuesday morning, you really can't beat that! Before ordering, I had to call customer service with a question and they could not have been more helpful or friendly, I was truly impressed. The island came in 3 (fairly heavy) packages. All of the pieces were carefully packaged and wrapped with foam wrap. It was super simple to put together. I laid out blankets on my hardwood floors and spread all of the pieces out before beginning. This really made the process easy. I did everything except putting the top on (which comes completely assembled, no building drawers!) by myself, although it would have been easier with 2 people throughout the whole process. I was just so excited, I couldn't wait! It's a beautiful piece of furniture and looks really great in my kitchen. The Cottage Oak finish is fairly dark, as it matches my cherry stained cabinets almost perfectly. The only issue I had was that the screw for the drawer handles is not long enough. Wasn't a big deal for me since I am using the hardware that matches the rest of my kitchen anyway. I would highly recommend Wayfair and this island to anyone wanting to add their kitchen storage and work space on a budget! Also, if this is your first order you can find a 10 off code, which makes this island an even better deal!
Unbelievably Fast Delivery

It took two days for the island to arrive; it landed on my doorstep in 3 tattered boxes that had me crossing my fingers hoping that there was no damage to the boxes' contents- particularly after reading some of the other reviews. Well, aside from a little scuffing on the corner of the top of the island, it turned out fine. There were no missing parts and all the hardware was there. My husband put it together in about 2 hours after I carefully laid out all the pieces in the appropriate order. It looks just like the picture, with lots of much-needed storage space behind those two doors- it's deep enough for my cookie sheets so I'm pleased with that. It fits my space just fine, but it's taking some getting-used-to, as there was previously no shortage of dead space in my open kitchen. All in all, I'd say it's a good value for the money.

I bought this for my kitchen because I wanted more counter space. Someone I know bought this and said she did not put the leaf on and it was plenty of room. I bought it and put the leaf on, but leave it down unless I need the extra space. I use the leaf more than I thought I would. Well worth the price!!
Cant beat Quality for Price!
Samantha from Whippany, NJ
This arrived in only a few days, and was packaged with care taken towards quality preservation. It took my husband and I less that an hour to assemble, the only tricky part was attaching the base to the sides since we had to screw from the bottom. We rested it on top of some chairs and lay underneath it. Assembled, I agree with some other reviewers that the side shelves are slightly too small for the opening, resulting in a gap on either side. In addition, in my piece, the drawer on the left sticks upon opening and closing. It appears to be getting jammed by the countertop which is inexplicably slightly thicker at that point. Overall, however, a very solid piece of furniture for the price.
Solid piece of furniture
Denice from PA
Bought this with matching chairs. This is a LARGE, solid piece of furniture with a commanding presence in the room. Not for small, or even medium size kitchens, as it dominates the room in size, bulk, & color. It is much darker than pictured here, more like a brown cherry, or reddish walnut, which is a disappointment. Arrived,with small but noticeable damaged areas to the wood in highly visible areas, which will require putty filler & stain. Also arrived with a crucial piece of hardware missing, which required a trip to the local ACE store where fortunately I was able to find what I was looking for. The tiny holes that several reviewers mentioned are noticeable & do not seem to have any artistic or decorative purpose. In an area of 5 X 1 I counted 25 of these 1 mm holes there are five of those pinhole cluster areas on the top surface of the island. There are also tiny triangular divots interspersed on the surfaces, again with no decorative merit. A big disappointment is that the chairs, which I specifically bought so as to create a set look, do not in fact match the island. The wood of the chairs is different in color, species, & finish, with a dull finish compared to the semi gloss finish of the island. If you can overlook these issues mentioned, & if you have a large kitchen, this might be a nice addition for your house. For my medium-size kitchen (14ft X 13ft) this will take getting used to.

The island arrived quickly and undamaged. Good job Wayfair. Assembly was straight forward and we knocked it out in no time. Only snag is one of the lower doors will not close far enough without resistance to remain closed with the magnetic catch. Even tried loosening the corner post to try to twist it towards the catch, but still not enough. Going to have to remove the hinges and try to bend them to angle out more. It's a shame to have to resort to that on a $600 piece of furniture.
I love this island!
Lisa from Hamilton, NJ
We were in need of additional counter space in our new kitchen. this island is great - it offers a lot of extra storage and counter space. It's excellent quality - my husband assembled it on his own and said it was time consuming (about 2 hours) but not difficult. We get a lot of compliments on it and have had no issues with it. We've had it for almost a year now and it's still in brand-new condition.

We moved and needed to "enhance" the kitchen. The previous family had a kitchen table in the room. We put this island. Provided seating and much needed storage. We have since rebuilt the kitchen and the island now serves as a sideboard in our dining room. Good looking, heavy, plenty of storage.
Karl from Gastonia, NC – Verified Buyer
Very well built, great price and prompt delivery. Took two people 30 mins to assemble, top is preassemble which made it nice and easy. Everything seems to be study and well built The top is darker in color that they picture but not by much.
So very happy!!
