#25 DHP Parsons Modern Coffee Table
DHP Parsons Modern coffee table is made of MDF laminate (fiberboard). It has espresso, wood grain finish.
It can hold up to 50 lbs according to manufacturer but it doesn’t feel sturdy enough for that. You can hear the fiberboard cracking when you put something even remotely heavy on the tabletop. Tabletop itself is very narrow. All of the parts have hollow core construction which makes them fragile.
The black covering comes off easily. Assembly is super easy though since you just have to screw in the legs which takes like 2 minutes or less, however the legs tend to unscrew quite easily.
Overall this is a fragile and badly built coffee table which you probably shouldn’t buy. It’s insanely cheap but that cheapness directly translates into the quality of it.
