    Customer comments about Linear 32h 74w Media Cabinet with Steel Base:

    We have pieces of furniture from Room and Board, so we are fans. However, we will stop buying from R&B because our Linear cabinet top cracked and an independent carpenter we had look at it said it was due to the glue they used to bond the wood boards together failing. He said R&B should actually have replaced at least the top of the cabinet. After all the purchases we've made, we expected Room and Board to replace the top and show that it stands by its products. But now they told us they will not. And we know for a fact that we got a defective product because our other R&B furniture has not suffered any cracks, so we know that the glue failure is NOT from regular wear and tear, and it's not because of environmental conditions because all our furniture is on the same floor with the same temps and humidity levels, and only this piece has cracked. We even have an R&B dining room table nearby that gets much more use and wear and tear, but its wood top has not cracked so we just wish R&B stood by this one defective cabinet. To add insult to injury, when R&B sent their own person to look at the cracked wood top, he pushed down VERY HARD RIGHT ON TOP OF THE CRACK and made it worse! We don't see how further damaging our furniture helps anyone do an inspection. We believe this is simply wrong because we believe Room and Board should not have left us worse off than we were before. Finally, it's possible that this is the only defective piece and/or series from R&B so you might have better luck. We are actually so disappointed because we loved Room and Board.

    Attractive and simple

      Customer comments about Linear 27h 40w Media Cabinet with Steel Base:

      It's baby proof (no glass or easy to open cabinets and hides wires well), which was the main thing we wanted when we started, but it ends up being such an attractive though simple piece that we really just like how it looks as well. We chose the dark wire mesh and dark stain and love it. Wire management is ok, a little cramped but hides the wires and we wanted a small size so as long as the wires are hidden we were happy. It is actually easier than our previous Ikea cabinet where the wires ran through a complex couple holes which was harder to manage.

      Delivery was prompt and arrived in good condition.

              This is a piece that is kind of "just there" in our living room. It is probably the cheapest piece of furniture in our home and looks like it but it does the job of holding multiple cable boxes and other stuff below our TV's.
              When the thing got here I didn't realize how difficult it was to adjust the shlf and within 2 minutes of trying to do it the thing chipped.
              We knew what we were buying and it fits the space, so while not thrilled, not disappointed.

                  I picked up this piece at the warehouse.
                  They wheeled it out and put it in my vehicle for me, also went over care instructions for the wood. Excellent service, and I don't use that term often.

                      Q:

                      Hi, we have this in cherry. I noticed the front portion on top is getting lighter in color - I'm not sure if it is from the sun or if our cleaning person used an incorrect product. Your website says to use satin wax - is mineral oil also ok to use? (I assume it is solid wood?)

                        A:

                        Linear is definitely constructed with solid wood. Cherry typically darkens as it is exposed to light and air. However, if the wood is dry it can look lighter and chalkier. We offer a clear wax that moisturizes and seals the wood. A clear, liquid wax from a hardware store would work as well. Oils can work to moisturize the piece.

                      Q:

                      Hi, I'm looking to purchase a 20" deep Linear cabinet. I have some concern over the component space being only 16" deep, as my receiver is 15.5" before factoring wire management. It seems like a lot of space is lost, 4", for the interior. I was curious if you thought that the receiver would be able to fit and if there's any wiggle room on the interior depth measurement.

                        A:

                        16" deep is correct on the component space. It is the back and door depth that consumes those extra 4 inches. Other options if you would like a bit more room, there is the option to custom order this Linear modular case piece and use an open space with wire management holes instead of a door. http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/customize_it/linear_cabinet/configurator/configurator.ftl
