My boyfriend and I had been looking for a small, pub-style table with an industrial look to fit into our small and awkward apartment kitchen space. We don't really have a dining area, and our kitchen just sits along the wall, so we wanted something that was neutral enough to blend with the rest of our apartment and be able to be used as additional counter space while on a budget. The height of the table is the perfect size for an island. The table actually looks better in person than I had expected it to! We bought four of the 24" stools without the cushion to be able to slide under table while they are not in use, and the fit/look perfect with the table. They are also surprisingly comfortable. Both the table and the stools are extremely sturdy, light enough to move around very easily but it doesn't feel cheap or at all like it will break in the near future. The only negative is that the table did come with one tiny chip on the top, and two of the stools had a slight dent (not really very noticeable) but we didn't really mind, it almost added to the charm of them. Overall, we were very happy with our purchase and we would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in purchasing this table!
