My dining space at my new house isn't big enough where a really large table would look good without overpowering the entire space. This Bavaria 5pc Pub Set is the perfect size. It's elegant and timeless and I'm definitely looking forward to hosting some dinner parties. I haven't had any scuffs or dents yet, but it came well packaged and was easy to put together. Heavy, solid table and nice comfortable chairs. Of course I will recommend this piece and I hope that anybody who purchase this set will be as pleased and happy as I am. Thank you Overstock!
