I liked the look of the item and the color when I saw it online, but discovered when I opened the box that the item is not completely black like I had hoped. It looks like someone had taken a pure black item and then scratched it repeatedly with a key, thereby creating streaks of silver.
I bought the full set of these table for a smallish living area. I didn't want tables to dominate the room. The style has been a perfect fit...plus it's easy to clean beneath them using a swifter, meaning I don't have to move them around to clean.
