My husband's office was doing a complete renovation and we were shopping for a medium priced conference table. This is not a swanky wood one, but it also does not have a $6,000 price tag! We purchased the mahogany and it is a dark burgundy color. It is of course a laminate table, so that may not appeal to someone who wants to "wow" their clients. But we needed a large and practical table to use in our "working" conference room - not a "show horse" in a board room. I did my homework and can say that this is a GREAT VALUE! We purchased the 16' table which comes with two of the data ports. Each port has 2, 3-prong outlets, 2 USB charger slots, 2 USB data slots and ethernet slots. The best and most complete grommet package I had found!! It sure cleans up the table top when everyone has laptops and gadgets they want to plug in!! The table arrived on wooden pallets, which means it was undamaged, but takes a long time to get there because it is shipped via freight truck. It comes in several boxes and takes strong guys to put it together. Each piece is heavy! Due to its size and weight, you have to put it together in the position where it will stay - nearly impossible to move when assembled. The table easily seats 16 with armed swivel chairs. (we put two chairs at each end, in stead of just one) We also ordered a matching buffet server and a locking cabinet for electronics. They were a little more time consuming to assemble, but it's not rocket science. READ THE DIRECTIONS FIRST. CHECK FOR ALL PARTS, and THEN ASSEMBLE. Here'e the deal, you may find a cheaper price somewhere else online, but you will pay through the nose for shipping charges!!! You come out ahead if you pay slightly more for it on Overstock, and get $2.95 shipping!!!! That is crazy good.
