I purchased this table for a small space inside my kitchen for my children to have breakfast on, as most people have complained it is rather difficult to assemble, it took 2 of us a few hours for the table and 2 chairs. I would highly recommend using a power screw driver as we both ended up with blisters on our palms. The seat part of the chairs do not seem to sit flush and when the chair is moved you can hear the seat moving around, we've tried retightening the screws that hold the seat on but that doesn't seem to work, it's not hugely loose but just enough to make a noise. Other than that the table has good looks and works well in a small space and with added leaf it can be extended if you need the extra room. I think overall I would recommend this item given the pricing is so good in comparison to others I've seen.
