Rated 5 out of 5áby HookedOnLLBean Really nice coffee table
When my coffee table arrived and I saw the condition of the box, all kinds of horrible thoughts went through my mind. The box was severely damaged and almost totally open on one end. However, there was enough packaging inside to protect it and miracle of miracles, it was undamaged. It was easy to put together, is very sturdy, looks like quality, and I love it. The drawer holds all sorts of clutter that used to look horrible on my old table. It's a good size and has a nice finish. It's much better than any I've seen in stores, and best of all IT'S MADE IN THE USA. You can't go wrong with this table.

Rated 1 out of 5áby discontentshopper Very Poor Quality
I received the table and the top piece had a large dent on the side where it appeared that the plastic shipping strap was too tight. I contacted LL Bean and they were kind enough to have the manufacturer sent another top. The second top also had a dent or construction blemish in it although not quite as large as the first top. So, here I am with a coffee table that is less than perfect. I find it amazing that this manufacturer wouldn't inspect their product before shipping. After this experience, I do not believe that I can, in good faith, purchase from LL Bean in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5áby DEL1 Nice Table, finish needs work
Love the table. Great Look, quality is nice.
We did have the same issues as others with the holes not lining up. We had to drill a couple of holes ourselves to get it together.
The table top scratches very very easily. There are already a few scratches just from dishes that were placed on top. I am applying a clear coat to protect it. It would be nice if the clear coat had already been applied, but I don't think it takes away from my satisfaction with the product.
Thanks for carrying a good product made in the USA.

Because of imprecisely drilled holes it took some modification to get this table assembled. Not what I would expect from Bean. Otherwise quality and finish are good. Table appears to be sturdy. Recently bought and assembled the matching Mission Entertainment Stand. Also required some adjustments for assembly. These are not inexpensive pieces and, as such, should not require any additional steps.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChrisLLB Great Table!
I bought this coffee table, the side table, and a bench. They are all lovely, and great quality. They replace another set that I liked, but which were way too big and heavy. The LL Bean set is smaller and lighter, and fits in perfetly.

Rated 1 out of 5áby disappointedllshoppe Terrible Quality
I'm so disappointed in the quality of this item. The first one they sent had a scratched table top. The 2nd one they sent the drill holes were so misaligned I couldn't assemble it, and the table top was warped in one corner. I'm not sure if i'll attempt a 3rd one or not or just go ahead and return it.

Just got my new coffee table. I really love this piece. I have started switching over to LL Beans mission style furniture and you won't go wrong with this choice. The quality is above what I expected. If your looking for a great piece to add to your home this would be it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NYGardener easy assembly
We already have several pieces of L L Bean Mission Furniture. This piece is quite handsome. It is a good, if not perfect, match to the other 4 piece we have, which do not themselves match each other perfectly. This seems natural as some pieces have aged. They are built from different trees and there's bound to be slight variation in staining over time. It appears to be just as durable as the other pieces which we have had for years. My husband and I assembled it easily in under an hour using hand and a power screwdrivers and we are not particularly handy. A hammer is used to tap in wood plugs. I suggest covering the piece with a thickish rag while you do this or using a rubber mallet. For me, an added benefit is that it is manufactured in Upstate New York, an area in desperate need of jobs.

Rated 1 out of 5áby quietknitter don't buy this table
I am very disappointed in this item. First of all it is not the same shade as the under window bookcases we bought from Bean's a few years ago. And secondly and even more irritating is that after only a few weeks in our living room, the top has scratches. It gets used only by my husband and me and the only thing on it is a coffee table book! Scratched by a coffee table book?! This is not up to Bean's standards. The under window bookshelves we bought a few years ago are not nearly as scratched.

Beautiful table, well designed from a feature standpoint. Attractive finish. Assembly is a little tricky.
