We kept the table because it meets our current needs, but the design flaws are significant. I appreciate that when one part came broken the supplier promptly replaced it. Replacing it is what told us about the flaw in design. Instructions for assembly are confusing.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Didn't.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The mechanism for opening a closing to put in the leaf is poorly designed, engineered and executed.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Color off.
I had been looking for a pretty and functional dining table for a small space, and finally found this one. It looks great, the craftsmanship is superb. It's a big plus for me that the chairs would slide in under the table. The only thing I am not completely happy with is the fact that you have to store the insert separately. My apartment is small and it's an issue for me because I have no place to store it. The assembly was easy. I don't know how anybody can complain about the instruction and assembly - I am a female senior citizen and I was able to put the table together all by myself (the tools were included). I would recommend this table to anyone.
The table is great and easily allows seating for 6 with the leaf. The arts and crafts style is clean yet warm, and the color is true to the photo, although the wood grain is not very "oaky," it looks okay with my medium oak chairs. Assembly was easy, but you'll need two people to turn it over and position once the base is attached.
Trying to replicate the feel of a small dining room I love this table looked somewhat similar to the table in the photo of that room. I had shopped around for a while so I was ready to buy a similar style when I found it. After receiving the table and living with it for a couple of weeks I realized it was the exact table (or replica) I saw in a photo of that dining room I love. So I am quite pleased. The leaf is a great extra.
