Reviews & Community QA

Home Styles Monarch Kitchen Island w/ Wood Top is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top is VERY dark finish. Looks like medium oak in photos, but it is not. The top on this is a very very dark oak finish. It appears medium or "cottage" in the pictures, but it is more like the mediterranean dark oak of the 1970's. Takes several hours to assemble- almost impossible for 1 person alone, unless they are very agile & very strong. Cam lock assembly- you get 1 side done, the other comes apart. Some bolts need to go in from the bottom of unit, and the top is very heavy- both need 2 people. When trying to get the 4 sides together, the base trim started to come apart. It comes in 3 very heavy boxes, which the trucker will not carry upstairs. Mine came on different days. I had the first 2 boxes unpacked & assembled before i saw the top in the 3d carton. When all assembled, it looks nice, except for the very dark "distressed" finish, which looks more like snow chains driven over it than to give it a "grain" - again, unlike the photo. I emailed HomeStyles about this- they basically said "too bad for you". However, it is cheaper than a custom island.
