Most tables that extend are wider (36" to 40" inches wide) and my dining area is only 8' wide. I wanted to be able accommodate up to 6 or 8 people on occasions. So I bought two of these tables and combined them by removing a leaf from each table and joining the tops together with the hinges from the drop leafs I removed. Now I have a 29.5" wide x 55" long table that easily extends to 74" long when the leafs on each end are raised. Perfect solution for less than *** Table has a nice heavy weight, looks nice and it is much easier to get around.
I love this table. I've looked around for a round dining table with a single center base for quite a while. All the furniture stores have thick bulky round dining tables or tiny tables that are too small for dining or too large for my needs. This table is perfect. It is plenty big for seating 4-5 people around. Plenty! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the glass top had a tiny imperfection/chip on the edge when we opened it even though it arrived packed very well. The chrome base is shiny as expected but doesn't look cheap at all.
I purchased this dining table to replace a rectangular one. It really opened up the walk-thru space in the area, given the circular table top shape and placement of chairs between the legs. I was a little worried the table top would be too small for us since we like to cook and serve "family style" meals, with shared courses in the middle, but there is plenty of space for four to dine comfortably. I was able to assemble the table by myself, but I wouldn't recommend it since the table top is very heavy. Assemble the frame by yourself, then call in a friend to assemble the glass top. If you insist on doing it all solo, I would recommend lifting the table top up vertically and setting the side on a chair while you align the table top plugs to the holes in the body, slowly lowering until you get two of the plugs in, then realign as needed. Adjusting the bottom of the legs for table stability is easy too. This is done with adjustable screw-in/out pegs at the bottom of the frame legs. Just make sure to do this over the exact area you plan to set the table, or you will probably have to do it again. And obviously do this before you assemble the glass top.
