We bought this to use at the end of our kitchen counter space. We put it up against the wall to be used as the computer station, phone dock, etc. One of the stools we leave under the counter against the wall - would only use if we moved the table out. For our use, this is perfect - sits just below the granite countertop and in the space we needed. It's not fancy - but fits our use perfectly. Definitely seems too small for 2 people to be sitting at it at once.
I purchased this set to replace an ill-fitting, poorly constructed table and two chairs in a very small nook of my 500 sq foot apartment. I needed something that looked nice and can seat 2 people but that can tuck away in a corner of the entryway when being used by only one person or when not being used at all. I also needed something affordable. This set of table and stools was easy to assemble and looks beautiful - the color is definitely espresso finished and not black. It's the perfect size for what I need and tucks nicely away when not in use. However, if you are looking for something completely compact - where the table can be pushed into a corner and flush to two walls with the stools tucked underneath, the crossbar on the table will prevent you from being able to do that. The stools in this set only fit if they have a little space to stick out from under the table. Not a big deal, but I wish the table was slightly bigger to allow the stools to both completely fit underneath when flush longways against a surface. It really is a great table for the value and a wonderful addition to my home.
I've used this table for a year and it has served it's purpose. Now that we're a little over a year, it's definitely getting more weak (chairs are wobbly, table is also wobbly). It could be due to our assembly, but I also think this isn't something you're going to get a 5 year use out of. Maybe 2 years.
This table was a bit disappointing. It puts you in mind of a school desk. It is also not very sturdy. If you are in need of a VERY small table for kids, you should purchase. Otherwise, if utilizing for adult dining, leave it where it is!
Love it! Delivered in just a few days; easy to put together, exactly as shown. Quality really good. We are using it in our 'sports room' as extra seating around the pool table. I ordered another one for my son to put in his small dinette area in his apartment. Highly recommend this product!
Highly recommended furniture, well made and a perfect size for any kitchen/dining area. We have had the set for a few weeks now and it has been in constant use, easy to sit at while watching others working in the kitchen or a quick place for the kids to stop at for a snack.
Did not read the dimensions prior to purchase and ended up using the table differently than originally planned. However the table did arrive broken but customer service promptly sent me a new one! Very good looking little table all together!
For the price, it deserves 5 stars. It took about 45 minutes to put together. You don't need a engineering degree, but it helps to have built stuff before as the instructions are not super clear. I had to tighten the screws on the stools after about two weeks. We have started been more careful (not rocking when using). Draw the measurements somewhere or count tiles, anything to get a visual on size, it is smaller than you think. For the price, it deserves 5 stars.
