I love these tables (I orderd two) and put them in front of my sofa for a drink or snack, etc. The width could be expanded by placing a piece of round glass over it, but so far I have not found that to be necessary. I ordered two sets of tables before I saw these on Overstock.com and sent the others back. These matched my color theme and global decor and they are just beautiful and as unique as can be. I have never seen any other tables like them, and I do my share of shopping in stores and on line. They are hand made and are more pieces of art I think when you look at the intricacy of the hand sculpture. They are versatile as well and can be used as planters and many other things. I am more than 100% satsified with this purchase, and the price was right.
