This table is great for small spaces. I have a "dining room" practically the size of a bathroom and have been looking for the perfect table for months. This table would look awkward in a large room but looks great in an apartment and would also look great in a kitchen. It was very easy to put together, about 20 minutes total. I have not bought chairs yet but for now placed some folding chairs with it, and they don't even look that bad. Some very elegant chairs could make this table look superb!
