Cute, functional, easy assembly. College student, in a dorm room, and I love it! It truly is my "coffee table"--both my coffee maker and slow cooker are sitting on it now. It's a little big to store easily, but I don't plan to really do that. It didn't come with assembly instructions, but I was able to figure it out pretty quickly. It's a cute table, too!
Not exactly what I expected. First and foremost when I looked at the larger view I thought there were metal straps that held the panels together and I was not too sure about how it would look. I was very relieved when I opened the box to see brown straps that complimented the bamboo. The picture also showed hints of green in the bamboo but mine were all light brown. Not really a problem but I was really hoping there would be a little green in them. During the day you can see through the panels but at night it provides adequate privacy. It looks attractive and is sturdy enough to stand on its own even on carpet. No assembly was required I was able to take out of box and set up immediately. The color in my pictures is off because of my lighting but the front and the back are actually the color of the back.
