This piece of furniture definitely deserves 5 stars, but, I gave it 4 because after assembling it, which was very easy, I go to put the last piece on which is the top and it turns out to be too short. Was immediately sent a replacement piece and it was too short too. I"m waiting now, after two tries by the company to receive the right size for the top part of the mantle. I hope they get it right this time because I love this electric fireplace and want it to finally be complete. The faux slate on the front looks so elegant and the wood fits in well with my decor. It's a very sturdy piece of furniture, very well built and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a beautiful fireplace in their home or apartment. Thanks for carrying quality merchandise. You definitely have my vote!
