Ok this table is wonderful. The table is a very dark chocolate brown almost black and has a grain pattern through the top which adds character to the table. The chairs are very comfy with the extra back padding and the colors are all very neutral. The fabric is made of creams, tans and greys. The grey is the most visible color. There were 6 boxes delivered and the table top is the largest one. Extremely heavy and large. You MUST have a strong gentleman at home to assist the delivery guy as one person cannot do it alone especially if you live in the second floor (like me : ) This was fairly easy to assemble. I did the chairs on my own and my husband set the table up only needed help to flip it over. One thing that I have to mention for the people with limited space...the chairs do not tuck in beneath the table. The base of the table is large and only allows you to push the side chairs (4) in slightly. Not a problem if you have an abundance of space but I personally prefer all of my chair tucked in the table. Still I do not regret this purchase as the table is of GREAT quality, super sleek modern design and my family will enjoy it for years to come. So if you have the space BUY! BUY! BUY! you will not regret this. This is a real steal and assembly is easy.
