This is expensive for flat pack furniture. When we ordered it we were not expecting flat pack - even though the website says 'needs to be assembled'. We thought this meant that the top part would need to be secured to the bottom sideboard - but no. They make a big deal that you have to check the product before signing for the delivery - but really, they expect the delivery men to wait while you unpack three boxes of flat pack so you can count that you have everything and quality check each piece. Not a realistic expectation. Which also meant that the delivery men did not take away the vast amount of packaging material (cardboard, polystyrene etc). We paid for a handyman to come and put it together. He did a great job, but the end product looks a lot cheaper than in the picture because of the odd pain effect. In the photo it looks subtle, but in reality it is not subtle at all. We think we'll probably have to paint it to make it look better. On the plus side, its a great size and seems sturdy (although the glass doors need a yank to open at present, which is not ideal when the cabinet is full of glassware and crockery - we're hoping time and use will solve this issue). The item took ages to be delivered (months instead of the two weeks we were initially told). We did receive a 10% refund in compensation for the inconvenience.
