The reason why I would not recommend to a friend because the table comes to you damaged. Unless they start using quality packaging for the table, it will always arrive damaged. The table corners arrived damaged. I didn't even have to take the table out of the box because when I opened it and removed the slim foam, I could see the corner damages immediately. The foam they use to protect the table in the box during shipping is so thin and flimsy in comparison to the weight of the table. That flimsy foam will never protect the table from damages if they continue to use that packaging system for the table. Whoever is responsible for designing the packaging system for the table should be fired. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the weight of the table needs more sturdier foam protection. The table legs arrived in a separate box. The floor protectors at the bottom of each table leg were all damaged. The chairs arrived in a separate box as well. We put the chairs together without a problem. You need assistance from someone else when putting them together unless you plan to be all day long. With the help of someone, it didn't take long to put the chairs together. The problem we had is that we only received hardware for 3 chairs not the 4 chairs that were packaged. Overstock is working now to send me a new table, legs, and 1 hardware set for 1 chair that was missing. I made package recommendations (i.e., use a thicker foam and/or stamp handle with care on the table box) to Overstock's customer service. We will see how the table arrives and I will post the results when I receive the replacement table.

The holes were not properly aligned so it took some serious struggle to put the parts together. Overall I have a white/ black theme happening and that is why I purchased the table -- so it has served that purpose. It's ok but not great for the price -- if a white table is not a "must" for you then I recommend purchasing something else. Would have given it four stars but the unaligned holes made it an extreme hassle so that took it down a notch.

After reading the other reviews, I was crossing my fingers and hoping that my table would not be damaged. As it turned out, there were 3 spots where it looks like the table was either dropped or hit something. 2 corners are broken, and an edge has a dent with the top laminate torn off, exposing the wood(particle board). The boxes didn't look like they were dropped or beat up too badly when they were delivered. One corner looked like someone half ass repaired it after it was dropped. I love the look of the table, it matches my other furniture well. The assembly of the chairs turned out okay. The cushions were not as soft as I was expecting. No big deal, since I won't be sitting on the chairs for a long time. It would have been a great purcahse if the table turned out in pristine condition. Too bad, so sad.
The item worth its price, but we got several defects and damages on one chair and on the corner of the desk. It looks like the damage on the corner is due to the shipping damage, but the dents on chair are metal crackings.

I bought this set for my kitchen and it is working out well. Table top arrived damaged but overstock replaced it very quickly with no hassle. Can actually accommodate 6 chairs so I am adding a bench.

I had been looking at this table on the site for a couple of weeks with extreme reservations after reading some of the other reviews which were negative for the most part. Thinking I was going to get lucky with my order and would not have the issues that many of the others had, I quickly found out that I was not so lucky and discovered much of the same issues. For starters I only received the chairs and table legs and no table top, as well many of the hardware pieces were missing and/or loose within the box. On a bright note O-Stock customer service handled my concerns with the item in a very expeditious and professional manner. The end result was that I ended up returning the item, the process was really easy "Thumbs Up" to O-Stock on their customer service, complete "Thumbs Down" on this product!!!!!!
First of all, materials are extremely cheap, This will always look good in picture but physically it is not that good, but not bad either. Don't just be too excited when you get it. I never return any puchase, otherwise I would have returned. Chairs are very very cheap, I know it is not going to last long. After setting up I found it is not symetric, but I am okie with it. White glossy is FINE. its the other steel materials that made it cheap. I would say good with money value, like I said, I wish I could return it, but I am now using it ok. If you live in a very luxury apartment, it is not for you.
I bought this set for my small one bedroom apt. Its gorgeous. Material is sturdy. Looks exactly like the picture. Steel shines. White has no blesmishes. My table came damaged in one corner. Overstock replacement was quick and hassel free. Seats are not hard.
This table is very beautiful and the price is unbelievable. Everyone said that it would arrive damaged, and it did. In this case, it was slightly chipped and would not be pleasing to a perfectionist. But I'm no perfectionist. I covered the tiny spot of chipped paint with a little paint leftover from a recent remodeling and no one could tell that this arrived with the slight defect. For the value this is an incredible table. If you are considering it, do get it. Be prepared for an hour of assembly and making a small touch up with glossy white paint because it absolutely will not arrive in all its fine glory. But you will be happy.
This a nice dining room set,great value for the cost. It does have a modern look with the style of the chairs, the chairs are easy to put together however, it was a little frustrating because some of the holes did not line up properly for screwing in the nails. Surprisingly everything arrived without any damage, I read several of the previous reviews about damage so I just called Overstock before ordering to ensure I received a table that would not be damaged, and they made sure it arrived without damage as promised, great customer service every time I call overstock. Also, the lacquer table top is very nice as well and the chairs are sturdy once put together however, the material is fragile on the chairs, the fabric can easily tear and get holes.
When I first received the table the ends were cracked really bad. So if you buy this table ask them to check and package really well so this doesn't happen. They did make it right and sent me the tabletop well packaged. :) im very satisfied! Excellent customer service and the table is beautiful!
This is a really nice dining set. It's very nice and sleek looking. It looks more expensive than it is. In a hilarious turn of events, I didn't receive the nuts and bolts etc. to assemble the table, but in the box instead was some sort of snack food (no idea what it was, as writing was all in Chinese)! However, Overstock quickly sent me the new parts. It's not fine furniture or anything but good quality and great style for the price.
Corner of the table top was damaged, but not enough to return it. The plastic cap on the bottom of one leg is missing, and bare metal is resting on my hardwood floor. Would greatly appreciate you sending this part to me.
