Compass Side Table 3.9 5 99 99
Unique Very Nice. This was a gift for a friend and they were very pleased with this unique gift as well as the quality. March 6, 2015
Beautiful Would like to know if the red slash of color across the middle of the needle is intentional and why also the legs have metal tips at each end February 21, 2015
Great quality We love our new side table-- very unique and goes great with our lake home. Durable and a great look! February 20, 2015
Compass table Love at first sight. The quality was better than I expected. Used it in an area that needed a small side table, it fit perfect. Also a great conversation piece . The compass really works, February 19, 2015
Looks ok...compass doesn't function...... Bought it to use as small accent table in my music room. It's not a bad looking piece, but the compass pointer doesn't move...good thing I know which way north is....... February 11, 2015
Disappointed... compass does not work! Love the style and idea. Compass does not work. Very disappointed. February 6, 2015
The table looks great and was easy to assemble. We love this addition to our beach home. It complements our décor perfectly, which is warm contemporary/modern. We are very happy we purchased this. February 4, 2015
adorable little table a great little table, compass adds interest that a plain topped table wouldn't offer. January 28, 2015
Poor Quality Purchased this product as a Christmas gift for my husband. Quality of the product is very poor. Cannot get level, wobbles. The needle on the compass does not work well either. Do not purchase. January 14, 2015
Cheaply made Wobbles top can not be tightened enough to be stable. Legs don't lock in the center with the 3 brass clips. Worst purchase I've ever made with this company December 30, 2014
great that the compass works ! Sharp looking table, but a little small and would like the legs to extend a couple of inches more to bring the height up a couple of inches December 25, 2014
Great and Unique Side Table This table is absolutely wonderful for a small space. It is beautiful, sturdy and easy to assemble. The compass works and will be a great conservation piece. I am very happy with this purchase! December 5, 2014
Easy to set up. The table is just the right size to put in a small space next to a chair. It is also perfect for a room filled with maritime memorabilia. October 22, 2014
Compass does not work I have thrown the box away that the table came in. So to send the table back would be difficult. But I cannot show the table off the way the way I would like to. Can you help? September 21, 2014
Compass Side table in Oak finish Pros: Fun, accurate compass, functional side table. Cons: Not high quality materials or construction. Table top (compass) wobbles in its fitting, despite a tightening screw. It is nearly impossible to level. The feet are hard metal that can scratch the floor. The red painted marker on the North indicator is sloppy and uneven. I think there is an overall attempt to look "rustic" or antique, but it results in looking low quality. September 21, 2014
Compass Side Table First of all, if you are considering placing an order for this product, there is an extremely long wait time. My order took 6 months to arrive. That being said, I am pleased with the look and quality of the product, it is a perfect accent table for our family room and we have received many positive comments. I would like to provide some advise on the functionality of the table: 1. Do not depend on the internal level on the product. I tried many times to level the table with this level, and was frustrated every time. Use an external level for the best results. 2. The legs are adjustable and made of wood. Because of expansion and contraction of the wood, the leg adjusters loosen up and you need to level it again. I have found that the adjusting screws need to be more than hand tightened. Once you have it leveled and hand tightened, take a pair of pliers (I recommend channel locks) tighten the adjusting screws. The additional torque provided by the pliers will keep the legs secure. Just don't murder it. A little goes a long way. August 18, 2014
Just as pictured & described I received this table within a few days (sooner than expected). It was packaged nicely for shipping. Very easy to assemble and instructions were easy to understand. I am very pleased with the quality and appearance of this table. It looks great and we have already received compliments from friends and family. August 3, 2014
Smaller than it looks The table is smaller than it looks. Its glass top was scratched when we got it, but after waiting 4 months for it to arrive, didn't want to wait longer to get it replaced. June 1, 2014
Compass table Workmanship is good. Difficult to set the compass when sitting on carpet. Like the adjustable legs. Pricey but I do like the uniqueness of the table. May 23, 2014
Sturdy and well built Its no wonder it is sold out most of the time. Very nice piece, very well made. A fun and attractive piece. May 23, 2014
What a cool piece..... My husband (a sailor) really likes this Compass Side Table. While it's not a practical or functional piece, it really has that "cool" factor going on. You've got to screw the legs down hard to keep them from slipping, and ours still slip a little bit, we just have to keep adjusting them. The little built in level is a nice device. This table works nicely with our decor which is sort of an eclectic beach house, sailing, colonial-comfortable-this-old-house mix. May 23, 2014
Handsome & Useful We purchased the walnut stained version and it is exactly as pictured in the catalog. The table was easy to assemble, is quite sturdy and is the perfect accent piece for our living room. It was quite the conversation piece at a recent party! We love this piece and would definitely recommend it. May 23, 2014
Pretty but impossible to level We could not get the legs to adjust so that all three were level. Would be perfect otherwise. May 23, 2014
Very attractive in my office I would recommend this table to someone with eclectic tastes, who is tired of seeing the same sort of reading chair side table in every designer's concept study. May 22, 2014
unsatisfactory We were quite disappointed with the table. Although it looks cool, it doesn't work as a compass and as a table, the top is too wobbly. It's going back. March 28, 2014
poor quality control The side table was a gift and was back ordered 3 times and finally arrived 15 weeks after we ordered it. It's a pretty piece but the glass top sits on the compass and prevents it from moving. I glued a few spacers on the top of the wood ring that supports the glass and it works fine so far. March 27, 2014
This table is stunning. I have had a terrific experience with this table. It is eye catching and a conversation starter. Almost everyone who enters the room is fascinated by it. It looks terrific next to a leather chair and is the perfect accessory for my lake house nautical theme. Highly recommended. February 12, 2014
Poorly constructed The concept is very good, but the legs are poorly attached with inferior quality fittings and cheap brass imitations for hardware. The extendable legs were not able to be tightened and the machining of the fittings were sloppy. January 21, 2014
Interesting piece This small table is definitely an interesting piece. We have a travel themed family room so it fits right in. I do not think it is designed to be a 'useful' table. It's definitely on the small side & is not the most sturdy/stable item. I do not feel comfortable setting anything on the glass. We have a difficult time keeping it level. The compass does function but the slightest movement knocks it off level. It is constructed well but more of a design item than a practical piece of furniture. January 18, 2014
Great table for chairside Bought this as a side table for my husband and we both loved it! The brass trim was detailed and made the table look substantial and very expensive. I would have given it five stars but the way the compass arrow was marked, it looked sloppy and not up to the detail on the rest of the table. Overall, it is a great little chairside table and I know it will be used in our home for many years. December 7, 2013
