This is a nice and sturdy piece, easy to assemble. I'm not a huge fan of the fake blemishes in the wood, but they aren't too noticeable. The top is made out of stone which means I don't have to use a coaster. The size is perfect for a laptop or a plate and glass. It's stable and doesn't tip easy (we have cats). It isn't too bulky.

This is a nice looking item, and it arrived intact. I was glad to see that after reading the reviews from some folks who received theirs with the slate top cracked. I agree with the reviewer who said that the "distressing" wasn't A++. It's too "regular" looking to be natural. That said, the wood itself is sturdy, the table top is hefty, and it looks nice as a tubside luxury table. That said, when I used the provided wood screws, they promptly came right out of the holes that I screwed them into. They look like drywall screws--the 1" ones in particular popped right out the moment after I'd screwed them in. I do not think they are sturdy enough to keep the top firmly in place. I plan to get my own, slightly larger screws, though you don't want to get longer ones--you could poke through the tabletop if they are more than 1" long. It's very wobbly right now, and I won't use it until I fix it; a little wood glue wouldn't hurt either. To charge this much for a little tiny table and then cheap out on a couple of screws is a bit galling. I like the table, though, and frankly, it's the only table small enough to serve this very particular purpose. I wouldn't recommend it, though. It's only average.
cute antique looking table. small enough to add to any space. great to have to place any miscellaneous items on. its really cool to have and assembly was really easy.

We purchased the table to use next to a free-standing lounge chair and it is the perfect size. The table is sold, good looking and easy to put together. The slate top is an added bonus because we don't have to use a coaster for drinks. We are very pleased with this purchase.
