I love this dining set!!! I've been looking at sets for YEARS and either have not found anything I liked or the price was out of my reach. The price for this set was right - I didn't feel like I needed a second mortgage to purchase it. I live on an island in the Pacific NW and I think it goes well in the style of my home, which is casual cottage. The top is such a beautiful rich dark wood. It is solid and the chairs squared up and sturdy. All the pre-drilled holes were spot on. My 14 y.o. daughter put the chairs together for me. Love it. Looks great in my house. Price is unbeatable.
