I have been looking for several years for a round side table to sit next to a lounge chair in our family room. All the others have either been several hundred dollars or made of MDF and don't have a high quality look to them. I have been very impressed with this table. The table that was shipped to me appeared to have been returned: the package containing the hardware had been opened and most of the screws and washers were floating around in the box and there were several minor scratches and dings on the edge of the lower shelf. Since all hardware was in the box and the damage was very minor and easily hidden (and besides it'll eventually be dinged) I kept it. It went together very quickly and looks like a much more expensive piece of furniture.
