My Review: Emerald Home Chandler Cocktail Table – One Of My Favorite Coffee Tables Ever
Hey guys! It’s time to review the Emerald Home Chandler Cocktail Table, because it’s definitely one of the first pieces you should check if you need a quality coffee table in your home.
What makes this coffee table different of the other ones?
Well, it’s a collection piece made from a really high-quality wood, that promises to make your decor extremely stylish and elegant. Plus that it’s also the perfect choice for a Rustic or Industrial living room, and not only: it would also make a modern room look amazing.
If I convinced you that it’s a piece really worth looking at, here are a few general things you should know about it.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Product name : Chandler Cocktail Table
Producer : Emerald Home
Price : $185.21 (At the time I’m writing this review)
Cheapest place to buy : AMAZON
My rating : 9.9 /10
Worth buying? : In my opinion, Yes
Now that you learned some things about this coffee table, I guess you’re pretty curious to hear why I recommend it, isn’t it so?
I’ll try to summarize the ups and downs of this product in a few lines below. 😉
- I absolutely love that distressed, unfinished look that this coffee table has. I was actually looking for something like this because it looks great in any decor,so that’s one of my favorite pieces when it comes to aspect
- I had no problems with the assembly, a person can do it in less than an hour so there’s nothing to worry about, even if you’re not extremely skilfull 😛 By the way, you get screws and one Allen wrench inside the package, so there’s no need for other tools, which is also great
- Also, if you have a Rustic decor in your living room, then this table is just what you need. In my half-Rustic room I have a lot of other decorations and objects, but this coffee table is enough to make my place feel and look like a Rustic decor. So it does make miracles 😉
- I admit I’m pretty “obsessed” with keeping everything clean and in order, so you can guess that coffee tables make no exception in this case. But luckily, this Emerald piece can easily be cleaned up with regular furniture products, so there’s no need for special, expensive products
- The fabric it’s made of is a solid, really thick wood, which I can guess is authentic. So the table itself is pretty sturdy and high-quality
- Last but not least, the price is absolutely amazing, you can get it right now for nothing more than $185 (when you would normally pay $450 for a similar piece). The reason is the 42% sale that you can find on Amazon
- I forgot to mention the free shipping that is available for this item anywhere within the US
- Its surface isn’t as smooth as some people might expect. I’m totally fine with it because it’s Rustic, but I have some friend who didn’t like this thing about it, as they were used and wanted something smoother and that doesn’t have quite an unfinished aspect
- Unfortunately, shipping from the main seller is only available in the US, for other countries you have to buy from other sellers that usually sell it for a few dollars extra
- The shipping may take between 3-5 days even for US shipping
For those of you who aren’t very sure yet whether this item is good for you or not, let me give you a few further explanations about each feature of this coffee table.
And if there’s anything I won’t cover and you’re curious to know, feel free to leave a comment at the end of my post, and I will gladly answer. 🙂
I’ll try to start my detailed review with the beginning, which is the way in which I managed to put it together.
I remember receiving a not very big package (which surprised me a bit because I was expecting a massive one, as there were some coffee table pieces inside), that wasn’t incredibly heavy.
Once I opened it, I noticed there were several big pieces: the top part, the bottom one, the legs and a few smaller ones. That’s how mines were, but I guess the unassembled parts are the same in every package,so that’s how they’ll probably be in any other too.
Anyway, I had a really pleasing surprise seeing that the package also contained about 12 screws and an Allen wrench. I don’t remember having ordered these ones together with the coffee table, so I guess they were just included.
And by the way, these tools you get are enough to put the piece together, you don’t need anything else. I used the screws to put together the legs and the bottom part, which was a pretty easy job: there were some holes and all I had to do was to get the legs inside them.
Assembling the top part with the bottom one and the legs was even easier, I only had to use the tools that were included, nothing else.
I admit I can’t remember exactly all the steps I followed, because the instruction manual was very clear and there’s no need to keep in mind anything about it. What I want to tell you is that, in case you get this coffee table, the assembly is one of the things you shouldn’t really worry about.
From what I remember, I think it took me less than an hour to put it all together, without any hard work. Also, a person can definitely handle it, there’s no need for more unless you want to finish in less than 20 minutes 😛
So all in all, I’m really satisfied with the assembly in general because there wasn’t any complicated work to do, the instructions were clear and simple and the pieces were pretty easy to put together.
RATING: 9.8 out of 10
2. Fabric and General Aspect
When I first came across this piece, I was looking for a wooden coffee table that would be sturdy and long lasting. Obviously, when I say “wooden” I mean authentic wood, not some imitation. And I’m glad I found it. 😀
The material this coffee table is made of seems really solid and beautiful. I just love the unfinished aspect it has, it really manages to make my living room look original and authentic, but also to feel more Rustic. Yeah, that’s exactly the word, my room now both looks and feels Rustic.
When it comes to how it looks, I can only praise this coffee table.
I don’t know if you’re aware, but generally speaking, this kind of coffee tables are either extremely expensive (it’s hard to find one under $450) or really low-quality (the ones that have a decent price). So finding something likes this would either make you spend a lot of money, or get an item that would only last a couple of months.
That’s why I’m so in love with this piece!
Its general appearance is absolutely gorgeous, I got so many compliments since I’ve had it in my living room. And I don’t think it’s just a coincidence, as many people that came to see me praised it and asked me where I got it from. They could not believe it when I said it was an Amazon item and that I got it for just $200 (that was the price when I bought it).
RATING: 9.9 out of 10
3. How to clean it up
I told you a few lines before that I’m quite a “cleaning up freak”. 😛
Yeah, I do like keeping everything in order, keeping the carpets neat and the…furniture shiny. So I’m also really preoccupied about the cleaning part every time I get a new furniture piece.
Now, you may or may not know that some furniture items need special products in order to stay clean and shiny. And most of the times, these special products aren’t the cheapest ones. You know what I mean… 😉
Once you use regular products, the furniture pieces may not look the way the did before, or even worse.
But I was so glad to see that they work so well on this Emerald coffee table…It was such a big relief! Right now I use Pledge Furniture Polish in order to keep my furniture shiny and clean, but in the past I used a lot of different products like BeHold or Glitz.
So I can honestly tell you that it doesn’t really matter, you can use any furniture product without fearing that it would damage your coffee table.
When it comes to cleaning up, you can do it just like usual, adding a few sprays and then rubbing it off until the coffee table becomes shiny and clean. So no special things, you can do everything just as usual! 😀
RATING: 9.7 out of 10
4. What kind of decor it suits best
Here comes my favorite part about this Emerald coffee table: although most people would probably believe that it’s a Rustic piece, which would look best in a room decorated in this style, it’s actually a much more versatile item.
That’s right, this coffee table is part of that small group of items that could easily look well in any decor. And by this I mean not just Rustic.
Industrial, Vintage, Art Deco, even a Modern living room would be the right place for this Emerald piece. Its unfinished aspect combined with that gorgeous look would give any living room an original and stylish air, no matter if it’s modern or traditionally decorated.
At this point, my living room is a combination between Rustic and Art Nouveau (yeah, there can be such a combination 😀 ), so it does match extremely well with the other objects. But even if I hadn’t had any Rustic accent in my living room, this table would have been still perfect for it.
I don’t know what makes it so suitable for any of these styles, all I know is that I’ve seen it in some many different decors and living rooms and it still seems to me that it looks good anywhere. So that’s all I need in order to call it “a versatile piece”.
RATING: 9.8 out of 10
Now here’s the thing I suggest you to pay most attention to.
When I bought this coffee table a few months ago, the sale wasn’t as big as it is now, so I remember I paid around $200 for it. At that time, the price seemed more than great to me, I would have said amazing maybe.
Why? Because the wood it’s made of is real, authentic and has a very good quality. This also means that it’s resistant and durable, and so far it kind of proved to be so.
And I know I said it a few lines before, but I really have to say it again: generally, I buy this kind of coffee tables (that are so high-quality, I mean) for at least $450-$500, and that in the very best case. Pieces like those can easily be found in furniture shops at huge prices, like $700 or even more.
So I guess that says enough for this great coffee table…
Besides, right now there’s a 42% sale on Amazon for this item, which means that you won’t even pay $200 for it, but $185!
For me, even the $320 original price wouldn’t have seem very high, considering all the qualities this coffee table has. So I guess I would have bought it even for $320…
UPDATE April 10 2017: Right now the price decreased even more, so you can find this Emerald coffee table at just $176.13, with a 45% sale!
RATING: 10 out of 10

Yes, I do believe that this Emerald coffee table is one of those items you should try in a lifetime. And I’m not the only one who says that, just look at all the positive opinions that people all over the world have about this coffee table. You can find them all over the internet.
The great appearance, the high-quality with the authentic wood fabric and the amazing price, all these make the Emerald coffee table a piece you really have to check out. At least to check out. 😉
