I've been searching for an antique white dining set for awhile before I found this one. First of all, the price is amazing. Everything I looked at in this color was at least $1000 or more. Secondly, it's just the right size. It's not too small or big. I was hoping to find a table with an extension leaf for when guests come over but even without one it's a good size table. For Thanksgiving, we were able to fit 6 around the table. Thirdly, the dining set brings a lot of character to the home. The antique white isn't a bright white which can look cheap. And the dark finish on top of the table and seat matches great with my other dark furniture in my living room. It provides a nice continuation from one room to the other. Everyone who comes over comments on the table and says how beautiful it is. I love it and you will too!
