Purchased the "Adesso Montreal Dark Walnut Oval Coffee Table" from Cymax and, when it arrived, it was 'Dark Cherry'.

Called them immediately and they agreed it said 'dark walnut,' and looked 'dark walnut' on their Internet Site. They would check with manufacturer who made it and would we send pictures to confirm that it was Cherry. Even though we had three days of dark cloudy skies, we got good enough pictues to show that it was not walnut but Dark Cherry and sent them to Cymax. Cymax people agreed it was Dark Cherry and called the manufacturer they deal with.

The nice person I was talking to at Cymax figured, like we did, that they had sent the wrong color veneer table. They talked to the manufacturer and were told that was the only color they had, and the only way they would take it back was for us to pay shipping cost, and a restocking fee.

We told Cymax that their ad listed it incorrectly and we felt they should stand behind that ad, as we would never have ordered it if the correct color of Dark Cherry had been in the description. Not our fault that the manufacturer doesn't know Walnut from Cherry (made in China of course!), but when a customer complains over not getting what they are told in Cymax ad will be a dark walnut, then we feel they should pay for taking it back.

We told Cymax that we would dispute our VISA charge, as our ordering was based on getting a Dark Walnut table and we had proven that what came was a Dark Cherry.

So beware, as what you read and see may not be what you get. From now on we are a 'hands on' person and will never order furniture on Internet again, and certainly not from Cymax!!!
