I bought this table for its finish and cabriole style legs. I was worried I wouldn't like the iron accent. But, after receiving the table I notice that it really helps define the table. I have the matching dining table in the same great room where I have a mirrored side table with dark wood trim and a side table made of the same. All 4 pieces mix to give a really nice shabby chic vibe.

This table is HEAVY and BEAUTIFUL. It is pretty large compared to most coffee tables but it works well in my space. I love the colors and shades of wood with the off white paint in between the ridges. The steal edging is really cool and makes it even more sturdy (and protects the table when certain individuals put their feet up on it). I love this table!
I am re-doing my house in a glam, beach farmhouse feeling. Grays, ivory, sea glass blues, etc. This table is gorgeous & perfect. It's heavy & substantial. The finish is perfect & the iron trim adds the perfect hi-lo feeling I'm going for. Could not be happier w/this purchase!!
This is a stunning table in person -- pictures cannot do it justice. The texture of the wood surfaces, with variations in board height and a certain elegant roughness are rich and real in appearance and definitely "rustic".. People who have seen our newly outfitted living room (more than $6K of furniture - leather sofa, etc) gravitate to this table first as thew centerpiece.. And it is solid as a rock and heavy - no veneers here! Negatives: All that said, I though of giving a 4 to quality because some of the black screws fastening the black iron perimeter had popped from the stress. However that was easily fixed by taking out all the screws, lifting off the metal perimeter and twisting out the screw shafts using a vice-grip. Replacement screws were easy to find as they are virtually identical to short black sheet-rock screws and actually I already had some in my basement shop. I did have to drill the wood where the screws go a little deeper to avoid twisting them off, as the wood is pretty hard and tough. Then I put the iron perimeter back on and screwed it down. Tip: Also when attaching the legs, I found it necessary to try various combinations of which leg goes where in order to get the best fit of the legs to the top. In keeping with the rustic look, the outer surfaces of the legs are not identical at the top so play around to get a good match of legs to the top.
I'm pleasantly surprised with this piece. It's solid and consistent with photo. Very nice looking with clean, elegant lines. The metal edge is just enough to make it look a little rustic but not overwhelming so it can fit in with different decors. If you have a lower than average modern sofa, measure the height. Very happy.
Everything about this table is great. It is very heavy and appears to be of high quality. The look is high end and I get many compliments. When it arrived, all I needed to do was attach the legs. The tools were included and it was a breeze. Just takes two people to flip it over because of the weight. Goes well with the "beachy " look of my cottage.
The table isn't exactly as I expected. The top of it has a very pronounced pattern that I wasn't expecting. I thought it would be more like the legs. It's still a sturdy table, but I probably wouldn't have bought it if I knew the top would look the way it does. I'm going to try and sand it out or something.
It has taken me over 6 months to write a review simply because I wanted to have the product long enogh to be able to write something based on experince and not just after few days of excitment of having this product. I have had it and I cannot say one thing that is wrong with it. I can tell it will last a lifetime. The wood and iron are strong and heavy and seem to be of very good quality. I would def. recommend this to someone else
I was looking for a stylish table without breaking the banks. This table provides an excellent solution. I'm planning on giving it a coat of paint myself to make it look more French country. I put the whole table together in less than 10 minutes. Opening the well packed box took much longer! :)
This coffee table is stylish yet so sturdy. Make sure you have a friend to help lift the 100 lb plus table. It looks great with flexibility to dress up for modern appeal or down for a shappy chic look in a room. Perfect for holding wine and appetizers while visiting with friends or a table for crayons and drawing for a little 6 year old. The distressing and white washed finish is tasteful and the metal edge gives it a cool industrial pop.
This is an awesome table! But be warned: it is big and it is heavy! Attaching the 4 table legs is all that needs to be done--- and they even include a wrench (!) to make sure the bolts on the legs are securely fastened. Legs fit beautifully-- the legs are identified with either A,B,C,or D and the four corners are marked with the corresponding letter. It is very well packaged --- took a while to get into it but the result was that the table wasn't scratched or damaged in any way. The hardest part was turning it over so it "stood" on the legs. Since I put it together myself, it was quite a challenge for this 120pound woman to flip it over-- but I did. It's an fabulous and sturdy table. I absolutely love it. So glad I ordered it. It was a bit of a gamble because I knew I wouldn't return it (because shipping and restocking would have been too costly). Luckily I didn't have to deal with that--I an so very pleased. We have it in our screened-in porch and it just seems to pull all of the rockers and chairs around it. Buying this was a home run! Oh, like the 19" height of the table as well.
