What a gorgeous fireplacemedia center
Barbara Lawson from Arbutus, MD – Verified Buyer
We received this unit just a few days after ordering. It was extremely well packaged and very heavy (sorry UPS man!). My husband and I put it together on Christmas morning in about 3 hours. By the time our family came over, we had the TV set up and can of fuel burning inside. It definitely takes two people to set it up since its heavy and to align the top panel. It was a bit tight on one end, but we did get it together just fine. The instructions are straightforward, hardware all in order, and all parts well labeled. The only tough part was getting the firebox in, as there wasnt a lot of room to maneuver, and there were no predrilled holes. I ended up priming the space with nails and following up with screws. Amazingly, there were no scratches or dings in the wood, which is actually a velvety expresso, and only the firebox had a small bump on the top rim. Now its hardly noticeable. The unit fits most of our components, with the exception of our cable box. We called the cable company and they were able to switch out the box for a newer one which is much smaller. In fact, so small that we can store things next to it on the shelf. Everyone just marvels about the unit and they just cannot believe we built it from a kit. It looks so solid and goes well with our brick wall and dark means in the living room. There is just a minor issue, but that can probably be resolved. There are 3 opening inside the firebox that are supposed to hold the fuel cans, but they are too small for the regular Realflame cans. You end up setting them next to these holes, and then they are visible behind the ceramic logs. I hope there is another size of fuel container to resolve this. If not, larger replacement logs are expensive. We spraypainted several thin bricks black, placed them under the log set, and they cannot be seen from the outside when the curtain is drawn. In all though, we are very happy with our purchase the unit ends both ambiance and useful storage to what was previously a plain wall.
We absolutely love our new fireplace!

I can't say enough good about this piece of furniture. We had researched having a gas fireplace professionally installed for a minimum of $5,000, which would have required code enforcement approval. Too expensive! Then we researched vent-less gas fireplaces, which would have been slightly cheaper and required less construction and paperwork, but we weren't keen on having the fire's bi-product blown back into the house. Expensive AND possibly detrimental to air quality! Chose the gel fireplace because it was/is inexpensive and harmless. The cabinet is heavy, well designed, and attractive. It looks like a permanent built-in. The fire gives the feel of a real wood fireplace. Sometimes we burn one gel can, sometimes three. This should not be purchased as your primary source of heat, but it does warm the room 4-5 degrees. It gives off a slight odor, hardly noticeable. We are extremely pleased with the way the fire looks and crackles like a wood fire.
Attractive, functional piece of furniture!

This fireplace met my needs perfectly! I needed a tv stand and wanted another source of heat in case of a power outage. This gel fuel fireplace is exactly what I was looking for to fit the space I had. It was packaged really well, but there were a couple of scratches on two corner pieces. They were easily fixed with a little stain. It was very easy to assemble. I put it together by myself, with the exception of the fireplace insert. I have only used the gel fuel once, and only used one can. It provided a surprising amount of heat, so I am sure using 2-3 cans would be all I would need for my great room. The flame is nice and crackles similar to a real wood fire. However, the logs included are disappointing, as they are very small and the cans are somewhat visible. I would definitely use the fireplace often if the gel fuel was less expensive. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.
Really Nice, price not so nice, but
Kelli from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
Really nice quality unit that a great addition to my living room decor. The dark wood looks very rich in colour. Easy to essemble took about an hour. Would have been nice if it included some starter gel cans with the purschase especially for the money you spent. So make sure you buy a supply of them. Gel fire cans must be a new product, because my local hardware stores Lowes and Home Depot had never heard of them. Make sure you shake the gel cans really well before lighting or they will purment an order. Gives off a nice warm heat that make it feel the ambieance nice and cozy. Will put into good use when the weather gets colder.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture. My teen sons had it assembled befor I saw it. I am not sure how long it took. A couple of hours at least with 2 people. They used a power screwdriver. Completed it very nice. Con: from many angles the cans of gel are visible. That was disappointing. The "logs" that should hide them are not quite substantial enough.

There is absolutely nothing disappointing about the T.V. stand at all. Great in quality and appearance. Assembly wasn't difficult at all, it just took a little time. We're very VERY pleased with the purchase of the T.V. stand and will definitely be shopping here again!
It can hold a 60 inch TV no problem !!
Justina from LAwrenceville, GA – Verified Buyer
I love it !! My husband and i live in a small condo it has no fire place so we decided to buy this item and let me tell u it is beautiful. its not to hard to assemble. It took him maybe two and a half hours. It is very pleasing to the eye. The only thing i have to say is that when we took it out of the box we noticed that some parts were chipped . Not a big deal we used a sharpie and colored it and it is no longer noticeable...... it is a good investment it's made of sturdy and good quality !! We love it .
Exactly what I was looking for. Love it!
Mariel from Plainfield, IL – Verified Buyer
Was a little skeptical on how much the gel fuel would warm up the room, to my surprise was more than I thought. I live in a townhome and one can is enough to warm up several rooms, three cans makes it too hot.
Love this fireplace
Robia from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer
We received the fireplace the Monday after Christmas although we wanted before, but it was worth the wait. My husband put it together by himself in a couple of hours. The only reason I did not give this a five star because it was a slight gap between base and top of fireplace. We just painted in between the gap which was a easy fix.
Good product for the price.
Mark from Smithfield, NC – Verified Buyer
Nice piece. Packaged very well and no shipping damage. A pleasant surprise considering the size and weight. I read several reviews prior to selecting this piece. Based on what I read, I was a bit concerned about how difficult assembly would be. As it turned out, putting this piece together was a breeze. What I failed to do was check the size of the component cabinets compared to my components. Most would not fit due to how narrow the openings are. But my mistake. Overall, a good quality piece.
