Pros

This table has many, many positive reviews. It has an overall rating of 4.5 across almost 1000 reviews, with over 600 or 60% of them perfect 5-star reviews on a 5-star scale. One customer purchased this table after literally reading hundreds of reviews and so far is extremely happy with the purchase. There are no step-by-step instructions that come with the table, but they believe that any reasonable person can and should be able to guess where the nuts and bolts go without much trouble. One of the screw bits did not work, but luckily they were able to replace that with one they had on hand at home and it worked out well in the end.

Other customers commented that this table is exactly in real life as it is pictured online, which is a big deal for online purchases that sometimes, if not very often, do not look exactly in person as they are described to look online. This table comfortably seats 4 people. To make assembly a little easier, one bit of advice is to attach the crossbar frame to the bottom of the table first then loosely connect all the legs. After that, you can attach the X-braces loosely, one by one for these as well, so that you have enough wiggle room to get them all on. Once you’ve done that, tighten everything up. This particular buyer said that she is an old lady with arthritis and is half-blind and she said that if she can do it, you can do it!

Overall, this is an amazing table that is somewhat bigger than you might think based on online descriptions. It really enhances whatever space you place it in. It requires two people for assembly, and the instructions are not as clear as some people would have liked it to be, and the addition of, say, 2 additional steps would have been great, but it feels sturdy and the metal accents harmonize well with the white top and wooden legs. Another assembly-related recommendation would be to assemble the legs on the tabletop first and then flipping it over to attach the legs.

Cons

Other customers who were not as thrilled as those mentioned above had the following to say about this table.

One party was very excited to receive this table, and the first time they received it, it came severely damaged. They were sent a replacement, and it came back damaged as well. What were the chances? The buyers determined that it must be the packaging for this product that is not good, and they simply do not recommend the table based on this experience.

Another customer was disappointed for a different reason. She received this table and couldn’t put it together alone after 45 minutes of trying to follow the steps which have no instructions and just photos. This technique of printing instructions sans written words is commonly used with items made outside the United States and helps manufacturers and designers save on translation and writing costs for instructions that are customized to specific geographic and language locations. This customer’s daughter helped her put it together and it took them two hours or so, so they recommend that you have someone hold the legs while you screw the overlapping pieces. When they finally finished and flipped it over, the top surface was damaged, but this was likely because the buyers in question ended up inadvertently placing the table upside down on either a nail, a nut, a bolt, or a staple from the packaging that damaged the top of the table.

Another customer echoed this sentiment: they said that assembling the legs was nearly impossible. They had to bend the metal a lot in order to follow the instructions, and in doing, they scraped they legs a lot so two of them became damaged. Once they finally got it put together, the table was very uneven so they had to add padding under two of the legs to make it usable.

Conclusion

Our overall conclusion is that this table is great for the price and is perfect in a small space. One customer went as far as deriding those who had issues with assembly by saying that it is hard to believe so many people had such a hard time assembling the table based on the printed illustrations in the instructions because they are really quite easy to follow. The table is exactly what it looks like on the pictures, it is pretty easy to assemble but you may want a second person on hand to help you with it, and the only thing that prevents this table from getting a perfect 5-star rating out of 5 is that the table sometimes ships with manufacturing defects and this is something that Langley Street should look into. Other than that, this item is aces.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
