Really happy with this set. First bought 2 chairs for the kitchen. Liked them so much that when I saw the Dining set, I ordered it too. Very easy to assemble. Very heavy construction. Thick padded seats. Has two 12" leaves, to extend it out to 96"- easy to put in & remove. Love the rustic/industrial style with the metal turn buckles. The bench is cool looking. We now have 6 chairs & the bench to seat 9 people at the table. Everyone fits nice.

shopped around for a while and decided on this one. assembly was pretty easy. I actually broke my left hand (I am a righty) the saturday before It arrived on a tuesday and assembled it in about three hours by myself. directions are simple and easy to follow. Was missing the #5 bolt (1-1/2") and the washers. I am contacting them today to get them to send me another one. Oh, delivery was GREAT! I had to reschedule the original delivery date and it was no issue. He called me that morning and asked if he could come early! He brought it right into the house and was really nice. very pleased overall! great value, I feel ...

The table looks like an old farm table, but when you are putting it together you know... that it is far from. Some of the pieces of wood that look like tongue and groove construction are just screw covers, and they don't fit well and needed to be glued to stay in place. The turnbuckles are mostly decorative, but all in all for the price the table looks good. It would be nice to be able to get matching arm chairs, so if Overstock decides to sell them... buy two to complete the set.

This is a high quality solid wood dining set with extendable table, 4 chairs, and a bench with rustic metal accents. I put this together by myself - beware that the table is quite heavy as it is solid wood. Directions for assembly were fairly simple, just a lot of components to put together. Delivery was swift and painless. Such a beautiful dining set. I can imagine keeping this dining set for many many years to come!

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? this is a solid pine dining set which does include two removable leaves to extend the length of the table
When I received the boxes the products were packed very nicely. All the accessories were in place and very easy to assemble. I did the chairs myself but left the bench and table to my husband. We were both very pleased with the quality, color and how solid the table is. I never buy furniture online because I always like to see it in person but was pleasantly surprised when it was all finished and we had our first meal on it. Glad I purchased it.

It's tough to buy furniture online but we figured we would give this table a shot based on the reviews. We were extremely happy when it arrived. Very solid table when put together. Looks great (a little darker than the picture, which looks great). The bench gives it a unique style that everyone seems to like. The same table goes for twice the price on other sites, overstock definitely has the best deal going. Highly recommended.
It is "distressed". Which means they scuff it up for you to make it look old. A nail ding here and a scuff here. It is a personal preference for the distressing overall it doesn't add much to the chair and doesn't take away anything either. The turnbuckle is the only thing a bit worrisome on the table. It is not for support and actually when you twist it hard to try and get it as straight as possible it pushes the legs out more than they should be so there is a concern there. Overall, great value for the money! I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying.
I purchased this table for my formal dining room and was looking for a table like the *** but not quite as pricey. The 4 packages arrived maybe a week or so after I purchased them online. Complete installation took me about and hour and a half by myself. I would recommend having two people to setup the table since it is so heavy. Other than that installation was easy, repetitive work. The included allen wrench is the only tool needed. The table, bench and chairs are all sturdy and match perfectly. The bench and table have a few artificial nicks that give them a slightly aged look. The iron spindles are my favorite part of the table and simply screw into place. Overall great buy!

I am very pleased with this table set. At first, it was not exactly what I wanted, but I love how it looks in my kitchen. It looks modern and the color is darker in person. I have seen much uglier sets at local stores for more money! The only thing I don't like is how crumbs get caught in the grooves, but that has not been a huge problem. I occasionally use a vacuum to clean it up really good.
I have been looking for a farm style - large table forever but didn't want to pay thousands for one. This one is gorgeous! I have a couple friends who purchased this and then I did and have no regrets! I purchased two captain chairs from Target to give it a more elegant dining room feel too! Bench is great for my neices and nephews!
The product itself is awesome. I disagree with other reviews; it is not just for looks. It arrived unmarred, well insulated in the boxes (expertly padded) and we now use it as a fully functional (entirely weight bearing), expandable table, and it is rock solid, beautiful and looks very high-end... the only cheap part (which I have no issue with really, since they're merely for aesthetics) are the turnbuckles. That being said, if you accept a table at this price, understand you will not be receiving patination, or true iron cross members, which again is fine with me. I haven't had it long enough to scratch or age yet, so I can't fully comment on how it will take bumps and bruises, or if the seats will bow, but upon assembly, all joinery seemed solid and of quality. If worried, you could always make it more permanent with a dab of Gorilla Glue here and there. The leaves are heavy and solid and fit nicely into the adjoining spaces to create a well-finished piece... not rickety or loose once latched. All-in-all the product is fantastic. Use coasters, place-mats, drapery, etc. if worried about effects of condensation. So far, I've used it for dining and as a workbench for house projects; (knock on wood) not one scratch from metal, ceramic, glass, etc. It's a great piece, at a great price for what you get. The only (and almost deal-breaking) aspect of this process that should be regarded prior to purchase is the deplorable shipping and distribution arms with whom Ostock has decided to transfer this product from them to the customer. I was "guaranteed" faulty and unreasonable lead times upfront, vacant delivery expectations and entirely absent call centers, as I was continually (and frustratingly) re-routed to full voicemail boxes as I tried time and again to locate, track down and understand delivery period for the product. THE ONLY saving grace during my hellish experience was Ostock's own customer care support team. One rep in particular was outstanding and was single-handedly able to counteract all of the BS associated with the process, re-instill confidence (I was literally at the point of shopping around and fully contemplating cancellation through Ostock), and further, provide a concrete date for arrival. Ostock was awesome; their chosen shipping relationships I'm not impressed with in the least. The shipping time is unacceptable, as Competitor "A" is able to deliver the exact same product, in 2-5 days time currently. If you can withstand the agony of waiting an unpredictable amount of time for the piece, you'll love it (or you should). Truncate your shipping, Ostock, so we can enjoy items like this in a more timely and reasonable manner!
This is a rustic, impressive, yet elegant set. A substantial piece of furniture! A little darker color than what I expected as the color is darker oak than the honey colored oak I was looking for. Still, overall, I Love the table and pieces that go with it. It arrived in a box that looked a little worse for wear but was packed very well with no damage and all was easy to assemble. Many places online were charging much more for this set. I believe I got a great value and a wonderful set for the money. Thanks Overstock!
