Took a plunge and bought a piece of furniture without any prior reviews and got lucky this time. Initially I was worried the artificial marble top would look fake, but when I received the table, my worry was no more; the top looks gorgeous; it looks, feels, and weighs just like real marble. It is not laminate over MDF like most faux marble table tops out there. This is a man-made stone slab, a very heavy piece. The table came in 3 separate boxes: One for the table top, one for the legs and screws, and one for the base that goes under the artificial marble top. The table top and all the parts are packaged very well, especially the table top, it is protected very well with 2 layers of boxes and dense foams. I was looking for a round coffee table around 36 inches diameter and this one came close. The size is just as advertised. The only thing wrong in the description are the legs, it is actually metal, not wood, but it is painted to look like wood, and it looks quite real to me. I'm kind of glad the legs are metal, which makes the whole construction very solid and sturdy. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and felt that I saved some money going with artificial stone. A real marble piece this size would cost a lot more. I achieved the look I want for a lot less.
