I have had this table for quite a while (at least 7 months), and I am very pleased with it! It is very sturdy and looks just as pictured online. The assembly was a snap! The stools are solid, and the tabletop is quite nice as well. The table seems a little bit "softer" than the stools if that makes sense. My point being that our cats have been able to put a scratch on the table but not on the stools (they sit on both occasionally). The tabletop has more of a matte finish while the stools are shiny. I honestly didn't notice that until just now as I am analyzing it to write this review! This was a great purchase (for both quality and price), and I always get compliments on this set!
