I needed a counter top height table for a small area in my kitchen. I had trouble finding one and then I found this Maddox Express Counter Table on Overstock and another site. Overstock was $100 less! I know how great they are from many other products I have ordered from them so I placed the order. It came in a very short time as usual and was perfect for the area. It is really sturdy and the finish is beautiful. I'm totally happy!!
These 5 tables arrived VERY WELL packaged without a scratch on them!!!!!! We entertain alot so we wanted pub style tables to turn our dining room into a gathering place!!!! PERFECT size for many things----eating, serving, gaming, drinking etc. Straightforward assembly.....VERY sturdy, heavy tables are sure to last many years. We had beveled glass tops made for each one from a local manufacturer ($75 each)for ease of cleaning and to avoid any scratch problems. They look FABULOUS and SLEEK!!!!!!!!
LOOK: This table has fantastic styling to match contemporary or transitional decor. Could easily pass as a ******* piece. If you're wondering how dark the color is, it is a nearly black, espresso finish that is very, very versatile. You can pair it with many different styles of chairs to give it a different look. Perfect size for a small, eat-in kitchen. Two people can eat comfortably. Four people can have conversation and drinks comfortably. QUALITY: For a RTA (ready-to-assemble) piece, it feels pretty sturdy and would do fine with normal wear and tear over 5 - 10 years but I don't think it would hold up to a LOT of serious abuse. The feet on the pedestal base were not level for my model so I had to add a little foot pad to two of the shorter feet to keep the table from wobbling. For an RTA piece, that's only slightly disappointing, but not altogether surprising. ASSEMBLY: Took less than 30 minutes (and I'm a small woman who is not particularly handy with tools). The assembly mechanisms (e.g. screw holes) are surprisingly well constructed, but take care to align all the holes on the pieces that make up the table's "neck" or "stem" before tightening down the screws. You may need to fiddle with it a little bit to get all the holes to align, but it's not that bad. Do yourself a favor and read the instructions. Layout all your screws and nuts in groups in the order listed on the instruction sheet BEFORE you get started. I did this and it made everything go so much faster and saved a LOT of time and confusion. NOTE: It is COUNTER height, which is approx. 35-36" tall, so make sure you buy the right height chairs.
This table came in several pieces which I put together in about an hour. It's a beautiful, very expensive looking table and was the right size at 36 inch diameter for a specific area. It looks like true mahogany and although the bar stools I have swing around, the backs which are made of wrought iron have yet to dent it. Very satisfied with this purchase.
I was a little skeptical because I wasn't sure how the color will be. I read a review and they said close to black. We'll is a deep brown rich color ! Love it! It is even more beautiful in person. I'm going to buy a glass top for it because I want it to last forever :)
This table is super functional. Perfect size for my kitchen. I already had 4 stools that match the wood. It looks beatiful. It took less than an hour from opening box to discarding box after assembly. Very simple to asssemble. Just time consuming. I did not rate quality excellent since the wood is soft and can easily scratch. I accidentally dropped a spoon and it caused a slight scratch. It also came with a scratch under the finishing. The imperfection was not large enough to bother returning and reassembling, so I kept it. Plenty of space for my family of four to sit at. I am satisfied with my purchase.
Great table. Goes well with my counter height chairs. Easy to put together. I think I'm going to get a piece of glass to add to the top.

This table is a perfect size for a smaller eat-in area of a kitchen. The assembly diagram for the table was adequate and the table was easy to assemble...took me about 35 minutes. Size, color, and price are great.

this is a really well made table and the color has far more depth than the picture is able to show. It is a unique style and really a great focal point in what before had been sort of the boring empty dining space of our kitchen.

I am very pleased with the Maddox Table. It is beautiful and has elegant lines. It fits perfectly in my small space, but has an ample table top that could seat 4 easily. The delivery came very quickly and you can't beat the shipping cost with Overstock.
Easy to put together by one person. I got shipped the wrong one (dining instead of counter) and so by the time I put it together a second time I was quick at it--20 minutes. Seems pretty sturdy but a little pricey for what it is in the end. I chose this table and settled with the price cause it's what I was looking for but realistically this is a $150-$180 table, in my opinion. If you really like it, you won't regret it. If you're on the fence, keep shopping.
Arrived earlier than expected and the parts were very carefully packed. Make sure you have every little part mentioned on the assembling guide before you dump the box as we almost threw out the 3 little wood corks for the stem. Before I received the table, I was worried about its sturdiness and the color being too black. But I am very satisfied with the dark brown /espresso finish which matches the rest of my contemporary furniture. And the table is more stable than it looks (as long as you don't stand on it). Over all, I am very satisfied with my purchase and will definitely shop on Overstock again.
I've looked for a similar item at stores and couldn't find anything that was as good of a match or made as well. I love this table. It's well made and fits perfectly. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for something similar. You won't be disappointed. Solid construction, nice peice, and a great price...exactly what you would expect!
