Rated 5 out of 5 by dotteddogowner Mission Coffee Table
The mission coffee table arrived intact with all parts. The shipping box was a bit torn, but the packing materials protected the table parts. The directions were brief and simple. I assembled the table by myself in under an hour, using the hardware included in the predrilled holes. The assembled table is solid wood and plenty sturdy for its intended purpose. We got this coffee table to match an old mission style sleeper sofa and they look great together. We are very pleased with the purchase. As other reviews had mentioned some difficulty with assembly, I refrained from putting the table together as I might imagine it should be done and followed the instructions exactly. It went together with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattlenerd Good quality, two-person assembly best
Very attractive and solidly built. Definitely helps to have a second person to stabilize pieces as they are assembled, but the instructions are straightforward and easy to follow. Total assembly time less than an hour. Like some other reviewers, the top piece of my coffee table was slightly bowed, but it seems the predrilled holes were sunk after the minor bowing and it fit together without incident. A great addition to our living room, especially with our existing Mission style nesting tables.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gobblegobble Quality lacking.
I am a longtime fan of LLBean, but sadly disappointed with this purchase. Solidly built piece, but poor quality control. Appeared more like a second, or even third quality. Defects include: top was noticeably bowed; finish on drawer irregular; small area of unstained wood visible on exterior; large fissure on undersurface of shelf. Would not have purchased if I had seen it in a store unless sold at 50% discount. Bean has promised a replacement top. Offered to replace entire piece or refund, but I can live with all but the bowed top, and packing it all up to return is to much hassle. Will avoid furniture purchase from them in future. P.S. your nickname system is ridiculous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crugers Good but not perfect
Very nice table. However one side of the drawer did not align perfectly with the legs and a white line was visible. Nothing that could not easily be covered up with a dark wood finish stain marker.

Love the color of this table and it looks great in our living room. It was easy to put together. It is not quite as stable as I thought it would be but is still a very nice table. I will probably get more of the mission furniture to go with it in the future, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXBeanLover Looks great, love it!
I had ordered two coffee tables from other companies and both were damaged when we went to assemble them. This table was packaged properly and in excellent condition. Easy to assemble with 2 people. It really looks great and is a wonderful addition to my living room. I have never ordered anything from LL Bean that I didn't like. Great company!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kat78 Not what I expected
Not what I expected it to be. It looks like a plastic material, not natural wood, don't know if the dark wood finish has something to do with that or not. The thing that bothers me the most is that the edges of the table are so sharp. NOT a table if small children live in your home. Also there were spots by the side slats that weren't covered with stain. I just think it looks cheap. Unfortunately my husband had it put together and the box thrown away before I arrived home. Now I'm stuck with it. Would not recommend this table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LikingLLbean2 Easy Assembly
I was a little concerned about assembling this after reading some of the reviews, so I came prepared with an electric drill in case I had trouble with the holes for the screws. I admit I did use the drill to make the final table top holes just a little bit wider, but someone stronger would not have needed the help. The table was easy to assemble and it looks great. I got the dark mission color, but I think the light mission would be nice too. I also ordered the mission side table and they look great in my living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angelz The Finishing Piece
I had previously ordered other mission pieces and finally decided to finish the living room with the coffee table. It was easy to put together. The large drawer now holds many items you do not want out, and the size of the table top is just perfect for setting candles, a tray and flower, as well as, coffee cups. It is beautiful and functional.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rivieraman Another Good Choice!
Good looking, solid coffee table, as advertised. Fairly quick delivery, well packed, and undamaged. Reasonably priced. Takes a little time to assemble, but goes together relatively easily.
