I received the table six days after ordering it and it was in good shape. The color was a little darker in real life, but still looks really good. Assembly took awhile due to the large number of screws for each chair, but it was not difficult and the parts fit well. It's all solid wood that is heavy and sturdy, and the top is one piece and thick. Unlike most of the other 4-foot tables on Overstock, this one is fortunately a little wider (36" vs 29.5") and appears more substantial and roomier in my opinion. Aside from color, I was pleased to see that it really is just like the photos and online description. Although not super elegant like most tables in this price range, it's definitely not a rustic piece of furniture. It's what I expected, and I would absolutely buy it again.

I was looking for a smaller 5 piece dining set suitable for a small condo we rent out. It had to be dark wood (espresso), the chairs had to be padded for comfort and the table had to be approximately 48" long and 36" wide. Also, I wanted a simple but comfortable chair design that did not require a lot of dusting. I preferred brown padding on the chairs. The photo online looks black but when I called Overstock, the person assured me the padding was dark brown. It was. This set met all of my requirements. It arrived is less than 10 days.The outside of the single box (180 lbs) was in excellent condition so I was confident the contents were undamaged. Sure enough, the pieces were very well packed and all components were all accounted for and in excellent condition. No damage, not even a minor scratch or imperfection anywhere. Assembly was easy- just use the allen wrench provided to tighten the proper bolts into their respective places. The set was manufactured in Viet Nam. In short, the set arrived promptly, assembled perfectly and is more rugged and durable than I was expecting. There was one minor issue. There are no extra bolts. One of the bolts had a defective top- no opening for the wrench. So a trip to the hardware store for a matching hex bolt solved the problem. Seems like a good idea for the manufacturer to include an extra bolt for each size to avoid such an inconvenience. Assembly hint: if a chair seems to wobble because all the legs are not exactly the identical length, just loosen either one or both of the front legs. There is about a 1/8" degree of flexibility in positioning the front leg (up or down) before you tighten the bolts. This solved the problem on the chair that wasn't as solid as it should be.
The table top and the chairs are great. The only problem I had was with the material that hold the legs. It seemed like it was pressed cardboard or some similar material, not wood. They items arrived damaged and was unable to get a replacement. Sure did like this set except for the fore mentioned things.
This table and chairs are very attractive, sturdy, and comfortable. There were no assembly directions but common sense made it quite easy. The initial delivery date was a ways out but accurate. Unfortunately, we were told three times by automated phone calls that delivery would be earlier and those were not accurate at all. That was inconvenient. The result though is great--we love it!
I spent months try to find a breakfast table set and couldn't get one I like.When i was so desperate,I saw this dining set picture on overstock website. I ordered it right away and received it the day before our new year party. The assembly was easy. The color is beautiful, and it also looks elegant. I was a perfect gift for our party. I am 100% satisfied.
