Rated 1 out of 5 by Sue2 Scratches easily
I have always been very happy with my Ballard furniture but the finish on this table is terrible. It scratched deeply the first time we used it and it shows every fingerprint. I waited a year before making this purchase and now I am so sorry I did. I do not recommend the black finish at all.

by Sparkgirl I'm very pleased with the table.
I am using the table as an end table to fill a large space between my couch and a chair. I had a smaller round table in that spot and it looked lost. My decorator suggested I get a 40"-42". I've been looking at tables for several months and I've looked at tables that cost up to $2,000+. I came to the conclusion I could do a lot more with that money than buy an end table. When I saw this table in the Ballard catalogue I decided to order it. I ordered the dark brown and it's perfectly fine. I have some lovely items on the table which is what you notice.

This table came expertly packed and easy to put together. I am a 76 year old female and was able to put it together myself. (Did need help lifting it to set it upright after assembly!) Very satisfied and have received
many compliments already.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Limeychique Rubbed white version of the Sidney table
Overall the table is sturdy (pedestal tables can be wobbly by design) so that being said I was still a little disappointed. I purchased this in 42" as need this size kitchen table & hard to find. I could have had white or black but replacing black so decided on a change. My disappointment was in the finished look. It is a flat paint i.e. no sheen at all. The black version definitely has a sheen so thought the same for white. Beside looks I am concerned how the flat paint will hold up as a kitchen table. Will it stain more easily, etc? I spoke with a rep & she said we could use those magic erasers on it. We will see over time. Also was told I have a years warranty on it.
Koodoos to the directions to put together. I am a woman & had no trouble putting it together within a 1/2 hour. The only ? was a dowel which did not make sense so I removed it & all went together fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Renov1 Nice looking table but top is laminate looking
This table is nice looking overall but the top is laminate and it looks it. I put a glass top over it to protect the table because I wasn't sure how well it would hold up to daily use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NJSUE Very nice table and chairs
I was a little hesitant to purchase this on-line because of mixed reviews. But I did and am very happy with the purchase. The table came quickly, it was well packed for shipping with no damage to the table or chairs. It is made well and looks great in my kitchen. The chairs are sturdy and not too small. We had no difficulty putting the table together. I might add a glass top as others suggested for added protection. The only negative is the $70 threshold fee to just off load the table not bring it into the house.

I love this table. The perfect size, color and its features, like the legs are beautiful. It is easy to wipe clean. I did a lot of searching for the right table and I am so happy I went with Ballard Designs. Their delivery was timely also. Could not be happier and would highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by y1981 Very attractive
This table is quite attractive and looks like it costs more than it did. Delivery was prompt and assembly was easy. All in all, we are very happy. The only criticism I have is that I would like the table better if it were an inch shorter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by moorehe2 Great look but shows its use
I purchased the 42" in black and this table is exactly what I was looking for to add to my breakfast nook. It seats four tufted dining chairs comfortably and I love the detail on the base (which, after looking around for a few weeks, I can honestly say is rare at this price). After less than a week of constant use, including eating and placing a laptop on it without any type of linen to buffer the use, I can say it definitely shows the wear and tear. Finger/handprints show up immediately upon touching it (but can be wiped clean with a wet cloth), the laptop left what seems to be a not quite a dent/not quite a scratch from the rubber feet dragging upon being picked up and can't be wiped away (you can see it at the right angle but it's not deep enough to notice unless you're right up on it - I'm just being sensitive about it), and it just always looks dirty from the marks. We're keeping it but I will definitely be using linens on it going forward.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sjhnp3 see nail heads through the laminate table top
Ordered this table for my breakfast nook in worn/rubbed black and the table is a nice heavy weight however every 12 inches around the perimeter of the table you can see the nail heads through the laminate table top! Very disappointed that the laminate is not thick enough on top to give a smooth appearance. Not sure if every table is like this or just mine.... I will be contacting customer service to see if there is anything they can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Persnickety What a Great Value!
Coming from a long career in retail furniture, I can be quite particular when it comes to design & quality.
A friend has several Ballard pieces which she has owned for years & continues to be happy with, so I took a chance & ordered this table.
It came well-packaged. Assembly was easy & I came away feeling very secure about the construction & durability of the product.
A table of comparable quality from any local retailer would have cost at least twice as much.

We love this table. It is perfect size for our eat in kitchen. It has a really nice hand painted distressed finish and it feel very sturdy too. Better quality than the cheaper ones we've seen elsewhere. It was worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Table Table is nice.
I love the color - more of a vanilla than a moss. 6 of the 7 table holes lined up so I still have one screw missing on the table. With the Ballard name I would think the table would not have this problem. The table will fit four. Six would be an extreme squeeze.
Other than that I love the table and the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoratingMaven Love the table!
I ordered Moss Green because of the price, fully intending to repaint. The color is so lovely that I'm going to keep it as it. The size is perfect, graceful but sturdy. I'm very glad to see that BD has table cloths to fit as well. This is the first thing I've ordered from BD but it certainly won't be the last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SunnyFL Ok for the sale price.
First, let me say that I don't like any furniture unless it's made of real wood and not the stuff they use today, i.e. rubberwood or whatever. I know trees must be saved but this imitation stuff is way overpriced. However, I was having trouble finding a small round table for my breakfast room and when they put the moss color on a great sale I went for it - 42". The moss has a bit more yellow tone to it but it still works with my kitchen colors and the style is perfect. I'm very satisfied with the purchase due to the sale price.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I'm downsizing, went from a house to an apartment and this table could not be more perfect. And easy to assemble, it took just an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvtutu Love this table. It has presence in the room.
It arrived promptly...very promptly. It was fairly easy to assemble. It looks great in my dining room. I especially like the "apron" on the table. I think it gives it an elegant look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarKar The table looks so stylish, but in shipping there was some damage to the tabletop.
The table looks perfect in my son's kitchen. It is a bit taller than most tables. My son and his family have your corner bench, on which now everyone now sits lower than normal. They have considered adding longer legs to the corner bench, but the skirt will be to short to the ground. The table also came with some damage in the table top. This was a birthday gift to my daughter-in-law and my son called you with the damage complaint. You took 15% off, and I thank you for that. The chairs that we ordered are the ones shown with the table and are back ordered until the middle of Feb. We ordered this in Dec.

Rated 4 out of 5 by moretastethanmoney Easy to clean
I purchased this table to go with some beautiful wood chairs we had also purchased from Ballards. I would recommend it with reservations.
You need to be aware that the table top and apron are not wood. On the one hand it makes the top easier to just wipe down, however the wood chairs don't match despite being a similar color. It's not glaringly obvious, but if you have an eye for that sort of thing it will stand out to you.
We decided to keep it because it is the right size for the space and we can get six around if everyone is home at the same time.
It was well packed, but despite this it did arrive with a small ding in the apron. My husband said it didn't bother him so we turned the table so it faces the wall and his chair. That way it doesn't drive me nuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thegip Great Table!
This is the perfect table for a small eating area. I was looking for a pedestal table so that there weren't legs to bump into and to be able to fit more chairs as necessary. The table arrived quickly and met my expectations. The antique white is very nice and the table seems to be sturdy and well made. I would definitely recommend this table, especially for a classic look.

I am using this table in my cabin in the entrance hall. It has wonderful presence and is very inviting. Not too large and looks really good decorated with a large vase and a hunting dog statue. I enjoy everything that I have purchased from Ballard. If I had the money, my entire house would be covered with Ballard designs. Thank you, D. Irvin
