This sleek round dining table is ideal for modern homes in need of contemporary decor or for more traditional homes needing a toned-down, simple look. The rich, black color of the wood can function either as a neutral in your space or take center stage....more
Finished table is acceptable but assembly quality is poor, even at a relatively low price point. Now that it's assembled, I wouldn't take it apart to send it back, but I wouldn't buy another one, either. Gloss-looking finish in photo is misleading; it's very matte. That must be a VERY bright light.
Final assembly took about 45 minutes, but also required a drill, a set of drill bits and scrounged replacement bolts to fix machining errors. About 2/3 of holes were drilled either too shallow or too deep. Two of the bolts were mis-tapped, two of the camlocks were not tapped at all, hinge plate templates didn't even come close to lining up, shipped glue packet was dried solid. Fortunately this is a tool-rich DIY household and we were able to work around the problem.
Ordered on 3rd, shipped on 7th, Arrived on 11th. That was one of only two great things about this table. The second is that it looks good. Which is the beginning of the downpoints of this table.
1st) The table is very SIMILAR to the one in the photo, but not exactly the same. The shelves under the table are not 1-2" thick as they look in the photo, instead they are about 1/2" thick.
2nd) The table arrived with all packaging in tact, however, there were a few chips in the wood board.
3rd) In addition, the wood had some portions along the edges of the flat pieces that looked as if they had some slight water damage - that slightly puffy look. In addition, the holes are drilled improperly/not lined up when attaching the fold down sides to the main table-top.
4th) I thought I was doing pretty well putting my table together (instructions easy at first) without an electric screwdriver until I got section of the directions where you put together the table top. Not only did it take a while to figure out what the picture was telling me to do, but worse, if I did NOT happen to have an electric screwdriver, I would NOT have been able to muscle my way making new holes for the screws. The screw holes don't line up and you can't make new ones by hand unless you channel the power of the Incredible Hulk.
I would probably not buy from this brand again - no NEW product should have any damage (much less water damage), and there is no reason to not have screw holes that line up. It's too easy to do. I would have been super DUPER angry if I'd paid anything close to full price for the table. But, that said, it still looks nice. I would recommend to a friend - with caveats: Don't pay full price, don't expect perfection and buy an electric screwdriver.

I can't keep the table top from popping off the screws that support it when the leaves are up and in use. I have stopped using the leaves on this table and I now find that I can't use this for the purpose it was intended.

I read all the reviews before purchasing this table and they were all accurate. I love this table! It wasn't easy to put together but well worth it. The perfect size with storage area underneath. I stole someones idea and have baskets in that area.
I ordered this table not expecting a ton out of it due to the price. I just wanted a table to get us by until our kids are old enough to do minimal damage to the furniture. It will probably get us there but it has a couple annoyances.
For the most part, assembly went well. When it came time to put the top of the table onto the base, things got complicated. Parts were breaking inside their holes, not lining up and just generally being a pain. After finding all of the problem hardware, what was left still didn't want to lock correctly, which left a gap between the two segments a few centimeters wide. The problem there, is that the truly terrible design they implemented for the slats that hold up the wings of this table, works improperly causing the wings to sag.
Overall an ok table. Had some imperfections coming out of the box but I wasn't terribly concerned with those because my kids will cause their own in due time. We are able to fit 5 of us at this table (Two adults and 3 toddlers) comfortably.
I fell in love with this table online ... Even read the reviews. It was not as difficult to assemble as some reviewers said, BUT not as easy as pie either. There are some surface blemishes that I am not happy with considering the price I paid. Unfortunately I am not enthusiastic enough to disassemble and send back the table.
All in all ... I paid about twice as much as this item is worth.
This table is being used as a craft/photostudio in the corner of our living room. We've used a green folding card table for years and it was time to "grow up". My husband put this together in 30 minutes and he had no complaints. I like the storage underneath for my photo studio kit and camera. I will only be folding up 1/2 of the table round when I need to take pictures, or do any crafting work. It matches our colors in the living room, we have black furniture and looks light years better than the green card table. Now I can check this task as complete!

Not pleased with table. Table top was difficult to mount to base. Table top finish is not holding up at all. I've only had a couple of months. I love the look of the table just not the quality. I will end up making a new top for the base with popular wood.
