What a great surprise this was! The quality of this nightstand can't be beat. A classic design, beautiful color, and lovely wood grain.The size was a pleasant surprise - with a very roomy top to park all the electronics overnight. It came completely assembled, except for the legs that were packed inside the two big drawers. But herein lies the rub. The drawers take a few days to lose their strong chemical smell. Not sure if the odor is from their interior surfacing (something white), or if it was the nasty smelling packing material that was inside them (for the legs). Even though we immediately removed it all and tried to wash out the interiors, the smell around the piece lingered for several days. The drawers don't come out, so they couldn't be banished to the garage for a good airing out. I was tempted to knock off a star because of this, but it really wouldn't be fair, since the piece really is top notch. Delivery was great, and the piece was packaged like a refrigerator, with every corner and edge triple protected. I just have to say something about the Marseille turned bun feet. They came with bolts imbedded, so just needed to be screwed into place - no tools necessary. And really nicely finished. Yes, I'd recommend to my best friend, but with warnings about the smell.
