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!)
