This is exactly the kind of table I was looking for, its heavy and sturdy and was beautifully packed - also missing the 6 screws for the leaf (which needs a little bit of sanding to make it fit flush to the rest of the table - not quite aligned but no big deal). The finish was a little more "distressed" than shown in the photo and the colour was cream rather than white. Having listed the cons, I still love my table, great value and would buy it again. My fist major online purchase and I was afraid it would arrive in pieces but all in all a great first experience - The only reason I rate good rather than excellent is the slight discrepancy in colour/distress description. If your looking for "fancy" this is not for you - it's down to earth and ready for a fun time!!
We love the style of this set, but there are some things we were surprised by when it arrived! - The table top is a thin veneer, not hardwood. However, the chair seats are hardwood, which looks really nice, and has variation in the wood color that is rustic. Unfortunately, the color and quality of the veneer table top and chair seats doesn't match that well. The table top has no variation in wood color, which looks cheap, and is much warmer and lighter than the chair seats. - The wood in general is much lighter than it appears in the photo. The table top has very little to no burnishing (dark edges/streaks) as shown in the photo. I was hoping for darker wood. Since the table top is thin veneer, there's no correcting it yourself with stain or anything - it is what is is. - After contacting customer service to confirm that the color was pure white, they said it was, but it is not pure white. It is an off-white. Not quite ivory, but I think it clashes with the pure white furniture and accents we have in the room. I'm sure most people will find it's a rustic look advantage to have off-white, but it just wasn't what I was expecting or looking for. - The burnishing (dark marks) on the off-white wood is not as dark as pictured, which I thought was a good thing. Another reviewer said it was like black marks, but ours are subtle gray and more natural looking. Definitely a plus! Other than the colors being off (as described and pictured), and other than the table top not being quality wood, we love the style of the set. It's well built (minus the veneer top) and higher quality than we expected. The extension leaf works great and looks great. It's certainly a good value, especially if you get a coupon or sale. It wasn't difficult to put together, certainly easier and less confusing than IKEA! It arrives in 4 boxes, and the box with the table is very heavy, so keep that in mind - and delivery signature is required.
Amazing value for this set! Never bought furniture on line before and was worried about wood quality. This table and chairs are extremely sturdy and impressed my bro in law, an engineer, who came over to put together for me. The white is perfect for our kitchen and I can now seat 6 guests instead of only 4. It was a huge savings too! can't go wrong with this purchase!
Since we have white kitchen cabinets and oak floor so we want to find a dinner set which bears some of these colors. We went to 5 different local furniture stores, but didn't find any one we like so we decide to search online. This set looks very beautiful on the website picture. Some comments said that they are much lighter than what is shown on the picture. When we got this dining set, the color is actually darker than shown in the picture (it is of walnut color). Not sure if Overstock has shipped us the one we picked (since we saw another website sales the same set but with the darker color). However, this set still looks very good for our kitchen. The quality is very good (sturdy and heavy), the style is lovely. It does take a quite bit of effort to assemble them. One other note is that they are finished with somewhat old looking style (done purposely), but we rather have them look brand new. Overall, we are satisfying with the purchase.
We are really happy with this set. It is a quality table, a good size with flexibility with the leaf,and the chairs are comfortable. One of the chairs arrived broken and the company sent out another back, no questions asked. The only reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I am not a huge fan of the worn/dirty look they gave the chairs, but that is a personal preference.
We didn't even pull this set out of the box. I took the leaf piece of the table out and it was the dullest, beigest sand-colored brown, absolutely nothing like the warm honey-maple portrayed in the pictures. Back it went! Did not like having to pay to ship these heavy items back, oh well. Did not want that table in my house, either.
The set is beautifully finished, instructions for assembly were very clear and simple. A child could get this set together. Packaging was excellent, no damage to items, although shipped overseas. Had excellent support from Customer Service in getting an international order sorted out, Will recommend to friends for sure! Good job! Thank you!
This set is exactly what I was looking for. I rated the overall value Excellent, only because I got it on sale and used a 10% off coupon. The color is more of a cream than white. The chairs do bang together when using all 6, even with the leaf installed. It went together smoothly. There were 6 short wood screws, used for the leaf, missing from the hardware. I contacted the manufacturer and they shipped the screws right away.
I be honest , I was kinda afraid that this table might not what I expected it and surprisingly it turned out way better then I expected it. It looks expensive and it is very sturdy and very beautiful set. We really happy with our purchase! Love love love it!!!!!!!!

Overall this table and chair set is exactly what we were looking for. One of the six chairs arrived with an incorrect leg, the customer service at Overstock was extremely helpful and within days got another leg into the mail for us. The only issue we have with this table is when the table top was screwed to the skirt, the screws used were slightly too long creating about half a dozen bubbles around the table. They are subtle but noticeable.
