This is a nightmare. The table looked great and pretty much that was the only thing positive about it. 1) On opening, we found some of the hardware needed for assembly were missing 2) The wood was chipped in many places on both the dining table and the chair 3) The table top screwed onto the base with 4 support screws. These screws fitted into pre-drilled metal casings on the table legs. One of these metal casings was missing and we could not fix the table top to the table base. 4) The chair assembly was a nightmare. The instructions had wrong labeling and you just have to make a guess as to which parts fit together to form a chair. 5) The seat of the chair was supposed to screw onto the chair frame using 8 screws. These screws had no pre-drilled positions and again leaves things for guessing. 6) Upon fixing the base of the chair to its frame, we found that the screws were not strong enough to hold the chair base to the frame and the chair seat wobbles and comes off with very little force applied. We stopped at this point to build this piece of junk. Returning it right away.
So the table top came slightly broken in two places. One place was cracked on the hinge and one support under the top was not fully attached which leads to the flip up support constantly falling out. These aren't huge issues really but enough to consider it damaged. With the issues we had getting it, I certainly wasn't going to return it. And then, it was short washers, two different types. I didn't really need them anyway so no big deal. Two of the locking pieces broken basically upon touching them so I had to go without. There are no holes for the screws to connect the seat top. The whole thing just reminded me of putting things together in the nineties where you never knew what parts you would have and not or what would break. It was just a big **** shoot and you better make it work cause getting those parts from China wasn't going to happen. So I got this all together in about two hours. It would have taken three if I hadn't had a drill, which isn't required apparently. Also, once app the chairs were put together every single one wobbles. Oh, I also build furniture as a hobby, so if you're going to get this that might help too.
We bought this when we moved into our apartment and wanted something new. It's been over a year ago and the set has held up quite nice. It was easy to assemble as I, a woman, didn't have any issues. Although I do love to put things together. Once assembled the pieces are pretty heavy and durable. Good quality wood for sure. I was only missing 1 plastic bolt lock that was missing. All else was included and properly labeled. After a year, there are a few marks and scratches on the table top due to the soft wood, but that wouldn't cause us to regret the purchase. I recommend this to anyone looking for a nice set for a small to medium space.
This is a very attractive set, all wood and quite sturdy. It took about two and a half hours to assemble with no problems. The only thing worth noting is that the seat tops were not pre-drilled so it will take a bit of effort to drive in those screws.
Table was easily assembled and I loved it. The chairs kept having bolts go through and cracking the right legs. I had to return it.
I purchased this set last year and I put it together myself. It was an excellent buy with only one draw back. The cam locks that were included were a bit on the cheap side. I had to purchase more from ********** to finish putting it together. Other than that, I absolutely loved the set.
It's sturdy and beautiful and we love it.
I have had cheep manufactured furniture before.....This is not cheep, I can tell it was made to look good and be strong. The picture really dose not do this table justice. The table is a bit darker and much more handsome looking in person. Honestly, for the price I could not find one I like better.
I am very happy with the quality of this dining set. The assembly directions are clear (and written in English) and I found it easy to assemble myself. I am a 55 year old woman and did the whole thing in about 2.5 hours. The finish is beautiful and I am very happy with this purchase.
Made in Vietnam Quality is very poor ,like this table Size only.
