The beauty of this table enhances any living room. I think it’s different from other coffee tables because it’s square versus rectangular. In fact, I was rather hesitant about getting a three-foot square coffee table because that would take up more room than I cared to have in my living room. But the elegance of this table is enchanting. The distressed wood top brings with it memories of furniture of yesteryear, but with a modern ambiance which is hard to surpass. This piece of furniture fits many décors. Whether your living room has carpeting or a hardwood floor, this coffee table will beautifully meld in with the other colors and theme of your room. The gray color seems to reflect the colors of the room. That’s why this table will go anywhere without clashing color- wise. The pictures in the advertisement do not do it justice. You have to experience this coffee table to appreciate its beauty.
Because it came in slats, assembly was not that easy for my husband and me, but we are not exactly experienced at this sort of thing. I think I just put in the last cam-lock and the table is done. It is big for an end table, but maybe in appearance only because it’s square instead of rectangular. It makes a great presentation. One thing for sure, it does not melt into the rest of the furnishings. It is a show-piece. Even though the table is almost three feet square and takes up quite a bit of room in an average sized living room, there is lots of space to place pretty things, for instance, artificial or real flowers in an attractive vase, porcelain figurines, books with interesting covers or whatever you want to use for decorating it. Almost anything will look good on this table.
Personally, I really like the classiness of this coffee table. The beautiful gray color is so peaceful and calming and the distressed wood top adds just the perfect, elegant touch. It is a heavy piece of furniture; not too easy to move. In fact, it’s best to build it on the spot where it will stay but you can push it or pull it into place. All in all, it’s a very pretty, elegant and modern coffee table.
