The table has a great finish, with a beautiful wood grain style, rich & dark in color (not as red as show in one of the product photos, true espresso). Looks awesome in person. The design of the table legs look pretty cool, too. We paired the table with modern style, button-tufted chair with espresso legs. A good value for the price, the table seems fairly sturdy even with regular use by two children. Assembly was around an hour or so with two adults. A lot of little screws.
We ordered this table for our breakfast room and it is the perfect size for the space. 4 good size chairs fit comfortably around it. It is heavy and solid and pretty easy to assemble. The color is a very dark espresso and there is heavy wood grain in the table top but neither of these are bad things, just qualities that are difficult to discern from the photo online. As always, Overstock's price, shipping speed and customer service are unbeatable.
When the table arrived, the top was slightly damaged- apparently dropped somewhere in between manufacturing and packing to ship. The blemish is not terrible but noticeable- I had to use a furniture marker to try to repair the table top but you can still see the dent. Given the fact that I had already assembled it and was dreading taking the whole thing apart, I opted to not try to exchange the top since it seemed like I would have to jump through some hoops to do it. Another issue, is that they provide screws to connect the legs to the table top and predrilled holes. Unfortunately, the screws seemed a bit long and made unsightly bumps on the top side of the table when it was fully assembled. When I realized it after turning th table right side up, I backed out some of the screws a bit to try to lessen the bumps. Very agitating for my brand new table! So learn from my mistake people- do not try to over-tighten the wood screws that attach the base to the top. err on the side of 'not far enough'. All that being said, I felt the price was very fair, and the table has a beautiful style- nice legs, and a beautiful deep espresso finish- darker than the picture.
