Rated 5 out of 5 by niffler Great Buy I was super pleased with this table when I received it. I bought it online without seeing it first. The table is VERY solid (needs 2 people to assemble). The finish seems quite durable. It has a texture and is matte. April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by afoste14 Great value I purchased this table because we wanted a round or oval table that could accommodate at least 6 but was not too long or wide. I compared this table to many at other retail stores, including Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. I found it very similar to a table at RH and for only a fraction of the cost. I purchased the table when it was on sale and was able to use a coupon so it was very affordable. We did in store pick up and two boxes (one for base and one for table top) were much larger than I was anticipating (and heavier). Assembly was a little complicated because all the screws had come out of the baggie and were everywhere in the box and three screws and washers were missing so I had to go to the hardware store to get some extras. But overall, an easy assembly. I was pleasantly surprised once it was set up and I combined it with my chairs from Restoration Hardware. It looks like a high end table for an incredible price. I am very happy with the end look and the price of the table. April 6, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bec215d Substantial, attractive table ready for everyday use This was the only 48" round extension table we found searching many furniture stores in the area - and fortunately we love the empire-style pedestal design and rustic texture. Works well in modern and traditional styled rooms. ACACIA WOOD: Acacia is a fast-growing (sustainable) hardwood in use for furniture making since the 18th century. It is as heavy as oak, and wears as hardy as oak, but has a more pronounced grain structure that also gives this table texture. The ridges and grooves were very pronounced on the sample table at the store - but the one that i got, the table top is not as deeply grooved (though the veneer on the feet and edges of tabletop are, almost looking like grooves on a record). I was concerned about the veneer after reading reports on the fixed version of the table about it peeling up at corners, so will keep an eye on that. The table (top and base) weigh a whopping 140 pounds. I was worried about the stability of the base for such a heavy piece, but so far it's very stable on carpet over wood floors. CONSTRUCTION: This table is impossible to tell what is veneer and what is solid wood due to the dark color and unique structure, but it appears that the pedestal base is solid, and the feet are solid, with a veneer on the visible tops of the feet with the heavy grain, and a more pine-looking grain (which is typical of acacia) on the pedestal itself. The underside of the tabletop is a mix of MDF and acacia, all stained and veneered, so it appears as well to be solid (who's looking under the table, though?) The top edge of the table is also mitred, so there is no sharp edge. Note: even tables costing twice as much have veneers - and any table with an inlay pattern on top is a veneer. I have an original Empire pedestal table from my great-grandmother that is veneered - that in itself is not a quality issue. What is different is that this veneer is over MDF, where as more expensive tables are a more expensive wood veneer (cherry) over cheaper solid wood (birch), rather than MDF... but the selective use of MDF is why it costs less than a solid wood table. EXTENSION: The extension uses a common mechanism for locking/unlocking that's easy to use and very secure. FINISH/DISTRESSED LOOK: The finish we chose is 'black', which is what most companies today call Espresso - black but with a warm brown undertone, and not a solid flat color but with some shade variations. From a distance, it's just black, so I think it would work well with any combination of black or espresso finish furniture. There are what appear to be groupings of nail-sized holes in several places on the feet of the table. This was also true on the sample, and in comments on this and the fixed table. Not sure if it's intentional distressing or some natural feature of the wood, but it's not a defect. Note: there were two spots on the acacia veneer on the feet of the pedestal that did not "take" the finish well - they looked like cracks until I bent down to look close-up. Nothing worth returning the table for - it will happen naturally over time if people put their feet on the pedestal while they're sitting down, and I can easily apply an espresso wax furniture crayon to cover it. VALUE: I almost gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because I think $600 - the original price - is too high for a non-solid wood table of this size. $500 would be spot-on, and with periodic sales or a 15% off coupon, you can definitely get it for that. At full price it's not 'excellent' value, but it is a good value. On sale at 20% or more off, it's an excellent value. SUMMARY: Good quality, heavy, pretty, and super-easy to assemble - a solid buy,and if my past WM furniture is any indicator, we won't have any issues for many years to come (thought i'm praying that the veneer is better on the round table than the fixed base one).

Rated 5 out of 5 by GWes Love this table! This table is great! I was so surprised how thick and sturdy it is - especially for the price. I bought the Lydia chairs to pair with the table - and we love it! December 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reshma Excellent Solid piece! We picked this up at the Coleman store, we were not looking for a dining table as we had just picked one up 6 months back. But liked the piece a lot, it looked solid and felt like a good addition in our apartment. its only been a day since we bought this, but have gotten a lot of compliments already. November 17, 2014
