Great value!

I was in the market for an adjustable coffee table, comparing designs very similar to this table. All comparable designs were priced upwards of $700. I knew exactly what I wanted and found this design to be the best value of them all. Moreover it was on sale which made it even more attractive. The table came in two boxes, one containing the frame with glass and the other with the legs. It was packed well, but was quite heavy; it definitely needs two people to put together purely because of the weight. Although it's possible to assemble it by yourself, you run the risk of dropping it. Assembly was very simple and it comes with all required tools. In my case, the springs that support the raising and lowering of the table were stiff to begin with. I literally had to turn the table over and do about 12-15 push-ups with my 165 lb body frame, pushing down on the legs. Since then, it's been fine. The table is adjustable to any height in the given range, although I need to give it some elbow grease to push it down to the lowest height. Keep in mind that this is a deeply discounted and stripped down version of the originals that Ligne Roset designs. If you've seen one of those in action, you'll quickly realize that this table's movements are not as slick and the legs are a frugal replica. The wheels are a bit cheap but the overall beauty of the table masks this factor. I initially thought the wheels were tight too, but then realized that they needed to be tight to keep the table in place given its weight. Then again, with the money saved it's a no brainer. The glass is of very good quality. It has the look of a $1000+ table and wows every guest. It makes a decent dining table, ideal for two, but can manage four as long as there are only plates on the table.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was accurate; a black glossy, opaque glass top and glossy aluminum gray legs and frame.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great value for the price paid. It is robust and rather heavy, so it stays in place unless intentionally moved.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was highly accurate, especially the dimensions.
