Bought this for my backyard to go with 4 mahogany chairs that I had purchased at another store. They are a perfect match! I love the size of this table, so much roomier than your typical round patio table. Got it just in time for a party where I had it set up on my courtyard (I live in New Orleans). The weather was perfect, and I saw many of my guests comfortably seated at the table throughout the night. I'm going to paint it with some water seal in hopes that it will keep it's rich color just a bit longer with our typical rain here. And even more importantly, assembly was an absolute breeze!!!!! Very well-made. Looks far more expensive than what I paid!

I needed a table for my 15th floor terrace in Miami. it needed to dry off quickly (rains come and go with little notice here), it had to be wind resistant, it had to be durable, and hopefully, eco-friendly. So the Balthazar seemed to fit the bill. And mostly because it is a crazy good price. That said, you do get what you pay for. the quality of the mahogany (really? more like orange-dyed balsa wood) is low. Certainly not a grade of wood I'm used to in my architectural renos. And the table is surprisingly lightweight. Good mahog. is never light. The slats that make up the top are cut thin (maybe 1/2") so you wont be dancing on this one. And I doubt it will actually be rot resistant for that long. The finish is so bright orange that I cannot wait for it to begin to fade in the Florida sun to a slightly more palatable grey. If it doesnt fade, I may stain it a bit greyer, which may help protect it too. But its a good clean design. Nothing offensive. Assembly was a snap (5 minutes, tool required came with it) and most of that was spent wrestling it out of its layers of cardboard packaging. Its a perfect size and a month later, Im still glad I bought it. Lets see how I feel in a year?

Not really 66 inches long, (just under 61) not 35 tall, (really 34) and most importantly not Mahogany Shorea hardwood (According to the Republic of Vietnam i it Eucalyptus Grandis) Otherwise sturdy and easy to put together, just temper your expectations and don't believe everything you read.

This set was delivered quickly and the table was pretty easy to assemble. The chairs came ready to use. Although it is advertised as mahogany, all of the boxes read "teak" on the outside. The wood is beautiful and the table leaf is easy to use. All six chairs fit around the table comfortably when it is closed. The chairs tilt five different degrees and although they are decently comfortable, I'll be getting seat cushions for them (they are made of hard wood). Although the wood is already treated, it will have to be sealed to prevent it from turning a gray/silver color. I'm very satisfied with the set and would recommend it to others.

I'm really impressed with these chairs! We bought 2 chairs, the mathcing bench and the table (it was cheaper to buy the individual pieces than the set). It took about 2 weeks to arrive, saw well packaged and arrived with no issues. I assembled them by myself in about an hour - all 4 pieces. It was a snap. The finish is a little light in some spots but not enough for me to give this a lower rating.The ad states the series is "Mahogany Shorea" wood but the boxes state that they are "Eucalyptus Grandis" and that they are FSC certified which is not in the ad. This was a bonus for us - we like the idea of eucalyptus as long as it's FSC certified. They appear to be well made, they have a nice solid weight and we can't wait to have a deck party and use them!!!!

The quality of the chair is not bad for the price. Assembly required, so you need some patience. One chair was missing a piece of hardware so this was a challenge to find, as the hardware is not easily found in the USA. The wood is eucalyptus or some tropical hardwood and the surface is not well sanded, but stained to look like mahogany. I can live with this if the wood is stable, as a good hardwood chair can be quite costly and the price was affordable. I had one chair split at the top shoulder of the back and Overstock replaced this! I have had some mildew occur since these have been outdoors for over 6 months and are now in a very humid greenhouse. A spray of algaecide has helped curb this, as I have to be careful of chemicals near the fishpond. Otherwise, this is a nice sturdy chair that I can afford.

I read the mixed reviews on this table before purchasing it. This is a great table for the price. Assembly was so easy a monkey could have done it. I did it alone in about ten minutes. Tools and hardware are included which makes it super simple. The table feels solid, it's a great size for seating four people, and it's attractive. Because the wood isn't treated and I'm using the table outside, I plan to use an oil or sealer of some type to protect the wood, which, by the way, isn't mahogany. I knew that before I ordered because of the reviews others had written. The color is a little too orange, but I'm sure it will be fine as it fades in the sun. The table also works great with my 9' umbrella. All in all, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this table.

This beautiful table is perfect for indoor or outdoor use. The third great thing about it is that it is round! No more corners to bump into! I wish I had had this table when the grandchildren were young! I didn't know anything about Balau wood, so I looked it up on Wiki and the only thing that can beat it in terms of water resistance and overall durability is Teak. But teak is heavier than most mahoganies and is cost-prohibitive. Balau is the perfect middle-ground. It is porous, so it can be stained a darker tone if you would prefer a rosewood or walnut. I ran my hands over the entire surface, legs and all, and there were a couple of places that needed a light sanding with steel wool. They were just a little rough - no splinters - and the soft steel wool took care of them in a few minutes. Highly recommended! Now I must buy the lazy susan.

I hesitated to buy this chest because of the reviews...so glad I did! It is gorgeous, well-made, made from sustainably harvested wood that looks like mahogany. It is large -- plenty big for a lot of cushions. Two of us easily put it together in an hour, though we did use a drill; using the allen wrench on the bolts would have been very hard -- you would at least need a glove or it would hurt your hand. I like the solid top with open sides: the top will protect from rain in a sheltered location, the open sides will let in air and light...which will help keep out the spiders. Excellent value for the price...the only other cushion chest I found on-line that I liked was $XXX!

the box for the table is labed: accacia teak (a different wood than shorea mahogany)The first table we recieved was a different color than the chairs. Overstock resent the table a second time (which came in the right color) however, many of the screw holes in the second one were to wide for the screws to latch on to and some of the wood on the table top itself were loose. Still hoping to get this resolved. That being said it is a nice looking table. The color fades fast so this will need a teak sealer applied. I see that another reviewer used thompsons water sealer, but that isn't recommended for shorea mahogony because of its high silica content. Should use a standard teak sealer instead

Bench is described as being made of "mahogany shorea." First, shorea isn't mahogany--it may be a nice wood, but it's not as heavy, rare, or expensive. Second, the bench I received isn't even made of shorea--it's the same design, but made of eucalyptus grandis, yet another tropical hardwood, also plantation raised and sustainably harvested, also moisture and rot resistant, but by reputation less termite resistant, and probably a paler color (although I obviously haven't seen what the bench looks like in actual shorea). The bench has a very attractive design and seems well constructed, so if you like it and don't mind that you may get a different wood than described, then don't let that stop you from buying it.

I bought two of these benches after struggling a bit with buying them sight unseen and unsat in. I am very glad I did. They are an awesome addition to the garden. But there was a bit of work to do before they go there. First off while the benches were very easy to put together there were some screws missing. I needed to wood glue the back planks (just two) and find screws to fit the holes . Tighten up all the screws after the bench is put together. You'll need a long screw driver also. Secondly the finish was tacky to touch and had some mold. I wet sanded the entire benches with teal oil first allowed that to dry and applied aproximately 5 more coats of ragged on teak oil- allowing to dry between coats. I live in the Pacific NW and wanted to give the benches some protection from the rain. The benches are quite comfortable without the need for cushions. They are a beautiful deep mahogany colour and after the sanding and oil are very smooth to the touch. Beautiful and comfortable for the home too!

It looks great! Everyone commented on how nice it looks and assumed it was very expensive. It was a great deal and I am enjoying it alot.

My Balthazar rectangular table came in. I was immediately caught off guard because on the outside box packaging it read "Material: FSC Eucalyptus" and NOT Mahogany Shorea as noted in the Overstock description. As such, I was immediately anxious of what the box held inside.Fortunately, the product looks to be satisfactory given the alteranate wood used. Eucaplytus is also "weather resistant" apparently.Construction is decent given this price point. It's basically four legs that have to be manually screwed in/bolted to the table top, using the screws and wrench that were provided. Assembly should take no more than 20 minutes for even the most unhandy person.Wood is slightly redder than teak.

I questioned whether this would be a good table but I am pleased so far...The table arrive faster than expected and was not as heavy as I feared since mahogany is a hard wood. This is different maogany than the usual hardwood available. The color is a brighter red and gold tone. I used a varnish sealer recommended for outdoor furniture. It has two coats and needs more after it is sanded down again. The varnish brought to the surface several rough areas...Overall it works better than any of the metal and glass tables available on the market.

This chair (I have two) is quite easy to assemble by one person, is attractive and quite comfortable to sit on. All parts are well marked, and no special tools are needed to assemble it. It did take ordering three to get two that were in good shape as one was damaged in transit. Getting a replacement was easy and prompt so no issues there. Good on Overstock for their procedures. I would recommend getting an additional back cushion if you are going to be in this chair for long periods of time.
