There weren't a lot of reviews on this table here or other sites when I ordered this item, so I was a little worried about the quality. It arrived in two boxes (one base, one top), strapped together and completely encased in mounds of bubble wrap. So it was this gigantic bubble wrapped rectangle. Upon opening, the only damage I noticed was a slight dent at the base where the post screws in, but it was so minimal I didn't care. The top was pristine. This table is super sturdy and just gorgeous. The top is a beautiful color and looks far more expensive than it is. I wanted a very stable, modern-but-not-over-the-top, inexpensive table so I wouldn't be horrified if our 2 & 5 year old kids destroy it, and this is just perfect. I couldn't be more thrilled with what we got for the money. Great value. We paired this table with simple molded white chairs with chrome legs from a box store at the mall you're probably familiar with. :) The wooden top really warms up the chrome and it blends right in with our transitional-modern home.
I am somewhat disappointed with this table, mainly because the top does not really look like real wood. It looks ok mind you, but when you have real wood cabinets or other furniture around, it becomes obvious that the top is synthetic. It is a bit lighter in color than my other wood furniture, so that makes it stand out even more. I must admit, that for the price, this table is easy to put together and is of good quality construction. But because of that lower cost, you do not get that real wood look. That's why I can't recommend it to a friend.

I'm so happy with our table! The table arrived on schedule. The packaging was the best I've ever received from Overstock. Not a scratch anywhere,including the beautiful chrome base. Assembly was easy for one person, all tools were provided with shipment. The table is very sturdy and functions well with our bench seating in breakfast room. Thanks Overstock for a great retro designed table.

I love this table. I purchased it a while back and only recently opened it when i moved. It is perfect for a modern room. I used it with the tweed Forza chairs. Pitting it together was simple and theres a rubber ring to protect the floors. I have stained floors that are not sealed so this was important to me. You can go to an expensive store or online retailer and spend $3000 for a table that is also walnut veneer or you can buy this one.
