These tables are beautiful and arrived very quickly...they will be perfect for me for plant stands. The only disappointing thing was that some of the welding seams at the bottom of the tables were coming apart a little. I don't think anyone will notice that but me so I am keeping them. I showed them to my boss and he is ordering a set for his house also!
These ar hammered metal, the tops are not necessarily "flat" but that is expected with metal. They look awesome and are perfect for my very small space. It was hard to find stacking tables with a surface of less then 2' sq. The only issue is the feet...they also are rough metal and I needed to put felt on them to ensure they would not scratch my floors . I do love them!
