I love this table BUT... This table is beautiful. BUT it arrived damaged from the manufacturer. There is a crack in the table top. So far, nearly a month has passed and they have yet to send me a replacement. So I have paid and am stuck with a broken table! If you get a "good" one, I highly recommend it.
Great Table. My only gripe is there were NO instructions for building the table. I was looking for the bolts and nuts and finally I figured it out. The nuts and bolts needed to hold the legs and base together are already on the unfinished table. You have to unscrew them then bolt them on to the legs and underside of the top of the table. It would have made putting the table together much less frustrating if they would have included a note of instructions with the table.
Aspen Square Solid Wood Folding Table. I needed a table that I could fold and put out of the way at times and that would be easily available at other times. I use it for my paper cutter to sit on when I use it. I use it to put papers I am working on where they are handy. I schedule movies each evening for a number of people. I can pile the movies on it and go through them to list them on our schedule. I find new uses for it each day. It is a perfect size and, when folded up, fits exactly the space I have for it.
Sturdy and beautiful. Comfortable chairs. Just received the set yesterday, so I can't comment on its durability, but being cast aluminum it should last for many, many years. Set arrived VERY well packed and in perfect condition. Packing was so thorough that it took longer to unwrap the pieces than it did to assemble them. Assembly was quick and easy; all parts were clearly labeled and they provided 1 extra of each hardware item in every box. Only little snag was on assembling the table. Instructions did NOT warn you to put the double-ended screws in so the end with the screwdriver slot faced out, and to use a screwdriver to set the screw deeply in the hole before adding the washers and nuts. Other than that omission, assembly was a breeze. We find the chairs to be very comfortable, even without pads, and perfectly sized. The swivel and rocking mechanism makes them really nice to sit in. The 48" table is plenty big enough for the FIVE swivel chairs we ordered, and a sixth chair could even be squeezed in if needed. Color is not so much "rust brown" as black with speckles of rust brown, but very nice & shouldn't show dust and dirt. It looks fabulous on our deck, and I'm very glad I didn't go for a cheaper, flimsier set. This one is sturdy, and all pieces sit level on our deck, despite the fact that our deck boards are quite uneven. We are 110% satisfied!
When the weather's nice, al fresco dining around outdoor tables is always enjoyable. For larger residential and commercial patios, choose a table and chair set or arrange for a more intimate bistro grouping. Create a pub atmosphere, enjoy a day at the beach with folding models or expand entertaining options with a larger patio table and room for an umbrella. Chat tables that incorporate fire pit centers are always inviting while a garden table offers both serenity and seclusion. With choices in reclaimed teak, wood, resin wicker, wrought iron and aluminum, you'll find just the right style to suit any setting.
