On the strength of the overwhelmingly positive reviews for this table, I purchased it recently hoping that it wouldnt' be one of the few (per the reviewers) to arrive with a small scratch or ding. First, it arrived in only one week even though it shipped from Utah and I'm in Maryland. Second, it arrived extremely well-packed and without as much as a blemish. Third, it looks and feels solid and as if I paid four times as much as I really did pay. Fourth, it was easy to assemble. Final conclusion: do not hesitate to get this table at all if you like the dark brown finish! You'll get many times your money's worth. Also, I got 6 dark brown leather dining chairs to go with this table and they arrived together and matched PERFECTLY! Now my dining room looks luxurious, modern, and comfortable at the same time. NOTE: The table very comfortably seats 4 but will accommodate 6 if need be. I ordered 2 extra chairs for other uses around the house because the chairs were such a bargain. For those who might be interested, the chairs I ordered were "Leather Dining Chairs (Set of 2)," sku number 421558.
