It was such a wonderful experience to walk into the store in Freeport while on vacation and experience our dream dining room table in person. They were transparent up front about the wait for the item to be hand built, so we were not surprised by the delay. When it arrived, the delivery team took time to explain how to care for it, ensure it was in mint condition, and that we were happy customers. We already love it and look forward to enjoying it for a lifetime!
We consider Chilton our gold standard when purchasing furniture. We own a Shaker dining table, Canterbury chairs, a Burnette bed and nightstands. I think it's amazing that our beautiful bed was made by a craftsman who lives two towns away. The designs are elegant and calming to the eye. The thing we love the most about Chilton furniture is it's timelessness and ability to fit into any type of home. We currently live in an 1850's cape, and the furniture looks beautiful. But we are considering moving to a newer build in a few years, and I know the furniture would look perfect there as well. We are lucky enough to live close to the Freeport showroom so we can browse freely, but if you aren't in the area, just know that this furniture is as stunning in person as it is in pictures.
The Shaker Solid Top Dining Table is EXACTLY as advertised. Expertly crafted, every piece of the table fits perfectly--the joining is impeccable and without flaw. The tabletop is polished to a satin finish with nothing but slight variations in the grain of the boards to alert the observer to the fact it is not made of a single plank. Every day is a pleasure, every chance to dine an occasion. We love our table and look forward to years of enjoyment.
This is a beautiful piece of furniture--well crafted and the tabletop slab is lovely. It does feel about a 1/2 inch too high.
The table is attractive, sturdy and has clean lines. It seats 6 comfortably but can't seat many more than that due it it's narrow width. So far I am really happy with the table.
The table is beautiful and fits our Maine camp perfectly. The delivery company was great to work with and the delivery was made when scheduled. Overall we had a great experience with Chilton.
Just what we expected. Very nice.
We are a family of five with a smaller size dining room. We bought this table (with the center extension) and I cannot rave about this furniture enough! First of all, the quality exceeds all expectations. The table is solid, but not chunky or bulky. Adding the extension accommodates family and it still retains it's solid feel. Secondly, it's holding up beautifully well to the wear and tear of everyday use by an 11 year old, 8 year old and 5 year old - plus the parents. We use it for everything and it still looks brand new over a year later. This table is made for busy families. Lastly, the table is extremely well priced. Given the quality and the beauty of the piece, we could not have found better and we had been shopping for a long while. Once we found this table, we looked no further. We also purchased six matching chairs. (Those are just as wonderful!)
