We havent had a coffee table in the living room since I started walking because I nearly broke my face on it, so I was very excited when this box arrived. Sometimes Daddy wishes he had a place to put his drink at the end of the day, so he puts it on the back of the leather sofa which more often than not means it ends up all over the sofa. I will encourage him to put his drink on one of these tables so I can have easy access to the ice in his glass. Some of the reviews on overstock complain that the tables are too low but not only are the perfect for our modern, low-profile couch, they are perfect for a 2 year old. I can make steps that lead right up to the couch and no longer have to use my head as a weight to get myself up there. The littlest table is perfect for my Feats of Balance but the tallest one is a little wobbly for 25 pounds. Im confused by how I can sit on something clear and not fall through it to the floor, but I refuse to be deterred by things that seem impossible. This is guaranteed to entertain me for at least the next 15 minutes while mama looks for her sanity. (Pictures can be seen on the blog of the same name as the screen name.)
- How is the quality of the product? The tallest is a little wobbly for a 25 pound child to stand on unassisted
I had seen tables like this when traveling in Europe and was excited to find them here on Overstock. Like almost all Overstock items, these tables are excellent. However, my one quibble concerns something for which I should personally take responsibility. I assumed that these nesting tables would be what I assumed was a normal coffee/side table height. I guess everyone has a different idea of what that is. I should have measured, but you know what they say about assuming. Anyhow, they are much smaller than I had expected so do yourself a favor and get a measuring tape. I like these so much, however, that I'm keeping them. I will find a place for them. I should also mention that just like with glass, dust and fingerprints are very noticeable on these.

i am an interior designer and after reading all the reviews, i was incredibly jazzed to buy these tables. (thick acrylic is expensive after all!) i have a very low bed and figured they would be perfect as side tables. i have to say they do look a bit cheap...not horribly cheap, just not as classy as i had hoped. they are sturdy however.. i do not feel they are worth the amount of money i paid for them, but they do look minimal and clean, so i will happily keep them...just wish i hadn't paid so much for them. they came 3 days after i ordered them, so that was cool. i think overstock could shave off about 45 more bucks off these...i'm thinking of painting them with a high gloss black or red to make them look a little classier.
Design A+ In fact, these are perfect for my kids. They just aren't full size. In other words, these tables are dwarfed by my other furniture in the room. I have moved them from the living room and use them as bedside tables. I'm 6 foot tall and the largest table is 2 inches below the knee. The smallest one is only half way up my shin. I'm not accustomed to setting my drink a half foot below my lap.
Love these!!!! I have been wanting on them for sometime, could only purchase just recently. Just so you know however I thought they would be thicker and more sturdy and they were not. But the price you cant beat. other places sell for $200 or more and of course you get what you pay for, but they arent meant to hold heavy items either. the thicker ones also have a tendency to have shade and coloring issues which this one clearly does not. So again great for the price you pay!!! very modern tend to wobble if very heavy items are on them.

I would highly recommend this set of acrylic nesting tables to any one who needs a tidy & unobtrusive set of end tables for their family room. They take up very little room but can be easily moved when more resting space is needed. They are very easy to clean & very durable!

I have loved this nesting end table design for many years and when I saw this acrylic version on Overstock for this low price, I had to pounce on them. In my small and somewhat crammed apartment, the last thing I need is more furniture that is heavy and takes up space. So this set is perfect. Not only do they "collapse" into each other when not in use, shrinking its footprint to just that of the largest table, when they are in use, they virtually disappear in the room because they are see-through. Modern and clean, they are the best little utility table set.
