I was so excited when the table arrived only to be dissapointed. The quality of the table was poor, the base and table top didnt exactly line up when trying to put it together, not to mention the varnish on the base had unfinished edges close the holes where the bolts went and on the bottom. In fact the base at the bottom was finished except for an extra unfinished material attached to the base it protruded out at the bottom of the base, very wierd. When I was finally able to put the table together thinking I could live with the extra stuff at the bottom, the table top slanted. The color was nice however the finish was a laminate varnish that would nick very quickly. Even if the table didnt need to be returned due to the slant and unfinished additions, I didnt see the table lasting very long because of how easily it would nick, there were a ton of nicks on the base. I think for the price the quailty and finish should have been higher. Its too bad as this was exactly what I have been looking for.

The base arrived cracked in 5 places and the top arrived with scratches. It also came with no hardware to put together I called and recieved a new table and the same damage happened andd the screws that they gave didn't fit in the holes. I went to home depot to buy. I should have just spent the extra money to get the real Sarrinen table as this was not good quality and it definetly will scratch and damage easily. Do not buy this table! This was my first time purchasing from Overstock and it was not a pleasant expereince at all.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is heavy but poorly made.
I have always wanted this table, finally bit the bullet and ordered it. It came in 2 packages, and the packaging was very good, wrapped well and packed in wooden shipping crates. But despite all that, the table was damaged along one edge, and the base has a crack in the center. Rather than return the table, I took a store credit for part of the purchase price offered by Overstock. Not sure I mad the right choice, but I do love the look of the table. Overstock customer service was great.
I was a bit hesitant to purchase such delicate furniture online. It is white and I was preparing myself for the possibility that the item will arrive damaged. To my surprise it came perfect! I saw the exact same rave in NYC for $900. I am so happy I took a chance on overstock!!
