I was looking for a round kitchen set that was unique, so I began to search online and came across this kitchen set. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to make the purchase because I have never bought furniture online without me actually first seeing it in display. However, I took the risk, read the reviews and saw that the feedback was positive. So I decided to make the purchase. I put the kitchen table and chairs myself, easy to do. I can honestly say that I love my kitchen set, and everyone that has come to my place has also commented on how beautiful it is. It definitely brings a whole new light to my kitchen. Since I bought this set, I am changing everything around to give it that Bistro look. Definitely worth buying, and for the price you definitely can't go wrong. Hope that my feedback helps someone else make their decision on buying this set.

From a distance it is an attractive set. The metal table base and chair bases are sturdy. Needs some power to align holes while using Allen wrench. Metal screws do not thread easily by hand, partially due to lack of lubrication, partially due to poor manufacturing alignment, although a little muscle work and my 15-year old holding the holes in place helped me to get the job done. If you are expecting anything remotely like inlaid faux marble, that is not what this is. This is basically a poor-quality photograph of a marble top on some sort of thin paper, fused to particle board with industrial strength acrylic modge podge to create "veneer". You can actually pick up the texture of the particle board on the side edges of the top. The finish is not shiny, more like non-glare, which unfortunately reveals the "faux" part. After assembly, however, the table has a nice overall look--the pretty metalwork helps to distract from the top. The top is, however, durable, heavy, and washable so far, although does not feel as hard as 1970's Formica. I would be afraid to put a hot pot on it without a trivet. Holds up to wet drinks, so not like a particle board dresser. The chairs are lovely, better than depicted with broad sturdy seating that will comfortably seat a 6 foot plus adult up to around 300 lbs, although I would question the longevity over time for folks of larger girth or football player teens who like to rock backwards on chairs. The metal chair frames are well-reinforced. The seat pad is where quality is worst. As one reviewer mentioned, it will take no time for the threads to separate. The coarse weave is attractive but lacks the durability of everyday seating, as this coarse weave does not stretch and does not even have the tensile strength of canvas. Easy for a cat claw or a snag to ruin the whole seat. Coarse weave over polyfill, can already see some polyfill after using table for a couple of weeks. Solution? Chair seat covers. For the inexpensive price of this set, $20 chair seat covers will be worthwhile. This table comfortably seats four people, and will seat up to six without knocking knees too much. Good space saver, practical for a small home and limited budget. Lovely from a distance, but not beautiful. Needs some extras to last in good shape. Good dining set to have while saving up for real furniture. Average rating. I expected more value, but it has grown on me.
The kitchen table and chairs arrived in a reasonable amount of time. It was myself and my daughter assemblying the set and wouldn't have been able to do it by myself. The quality was very good and true to the picture. The table was very easy to put together as well as 3 of the 4 chairs. We spent at least 20 minutes trying to line up the holes and had to give up because they just would not line up. I called customer service the next day and I must say I give them an "A" for solving the problem. They shipped out another chair in about 3 days after I explained what had happened. Very satisfied and would recommend this kitchen set to anyone.
I love this set. It arrived within a week. All pieces were there and the delivery guys brought it up stairs to my second floor unit. It was easy to put together. It looks great in my small kitchen. The chairs are substantial and comfortable. I would recommend it to a friend.
I just received this item. Putting it together myself was no problem. It took longer than is should have only because I was watching TV and stopping from time to time. So far I have been getting compliments on the table from everyone who visits. It's a nice looking piece.
I ordered this as a Christmas present for my house. I just finished putting it together. It was not difficult to assemble except that the holes on 2 chairs didn't align. I had to bend the frame a bit to line them up. Also when putting on the seat cushions i could only use 3 screws not 4 to attach them the the frame. I will need a longer screw for the 4th hole. It seems like the hole on the frame in one spot was too far from the cushion and it will need a longer screw. I think 3 will be fine as we are 2 adults with no children in the household. The set is expensive looking. The table is so pretty. I am satisfied with this set. Well worth the price.
the table set arrived in boxes that looked beat. upon opening i discovered a chip out of the table top. i contacted customer service and within minutes a replacement top was on its way. Outstanding. The "some assembly required" is a bit of an understatement, but in the end there were no real problems it just took more time than expected. you do have to go slow, put "all the screws in" before tightening them down, and in doing that the assembly was a no-brainer. the top has an excellent finish and it looks very "classy". the table and chairs have very sturdy frames and the chairs are very comfortable to sit in for long periods of time like a nice leisurely dinner.
Let me begin by saying that this order came out to be THE BEST thing I have order online not just on overstock but other websites. This was my first order from overstock and I was kind of nervous do the fact that I wasn't relly aware of how the packing would be set up or how difficult it would be. Well from the beginning it was a great shipment, It came EXACTLY on time like they said it would (free shipping) that is a major plus! but it doesn't end there. Once i received the package i was thinking how i would put this together or how much i would spend on hiring someone to do it ( keep note that i am a single mother , no man in the house) so as I decide to open the package to my disbelief the set up was literally THREE STEPS. The tools were a set of one type of screw and the tool to screw it on that is all !!!. Everything was already almost set just to screw them together and it took me literally a short time . The table was easyyyy, it was just legs that needed to be attached together and to the bottom of the table. And the chairs EVEN BETTER came with the back part already attached all you had to screw was the bottom piece to the chair. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING !!! As we all know sometimes buying online has its hastles with thinking of the struggle it will be to put it all together. But trust me i would have never thought they would be this practicle. Thank you so much overstock ! :)
I do like what I got, for what I paid for. I had terribly run down table set that was too big for my household. This replaced the old table set. It makes the place look modern. For the price and the look vs what you would get at a furniture place for the same price, it was worth it. However, it took some slight bending to get the chairs to align, and the table legs (circle) have one hole drilled incorrectly. The chairs look very nice. I thought the METAL would be SOLID and not HOLLOW which concerns me because we are a tall and sturdy bunch. My only dislike is the table top design; it looks like marble tile, plastic-fantastic shiny laminate crap. OK it is not that terrible, it just looks and FEELS cheap, compare to everything else, nothing a table cloth can't fix, for now. If you are in a pinch and need a table set this is a good one, if you like a challenge. I totally would buy from overstock again .
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color eh not quite.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Moderate Quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The table top is much cheaper looking and feeling.
I was pleased to find this set has the appearance of an more higher end set even though the cost was much less than expected. After shopping locally and not finding what I was looking for, something that compliments the rest of my decor, this fits it perfectly. The table is larger than I anticipated but does fit nicely in the space. The chairs have weight and are stable and comfortable. Very pleased with this purchase.
Although I would recommend this set, it was a complete nightmare to put together so buyer beware. The holes weren't lined up and it was VERY hard to make the screws fit because the table is metal. Then they give you a Allan wrench with the screws which were impossible to turn. Would be so much easier with regular screws. One of the decorative pieces on the table stand was broken, I just went without instead of complaining and waiting for a new one, besides I never want to have to put together a new one again!
This was my first purchase from Overstock.com. After reading the reviews, we were prepared for a bit of time putting the chairs together. As it turned out, there was no problem at all. The table and chairs are very sturdy and comfortable. They are just the right size for our smaller dining room. It looks great against our tile floor too and goes well with the cupboards in the kitchen and the lighting fixture in the dining room. I have no complaints at all.
