There are tons of options for shoppers looking to buy a contemporary dining room table. Occasionally, we will share a review of a great, or not so great, we encounter. We are currently focusing on kitchen furniture and appliances for a decorating project and thought we would share our views.
One thing about contemporary dining room furniture that has become quite common is cheap materials used to create a sleek look, resulting in a product with little or no value. A dining room table is used and seen usually on a daily basis. Adding a cheap, low quality table to your dining area could ruin all the hard work invested in other contemporary home décor.
We were very impressed with the quality of this 5 piece Contemporary Round Dining Room table. The table is made by Poundex, a contemporary furniture distributor based in Los Angeles. Poundex has been in the furniture business since 1989. This provides some sense of security. It is always best to purchase from companies with some form of stability. In the event there are issues with the product, which we hope there aren’t, the chances of quality customer service are higher with an established company.
What we like about the Poundex 5 Piece Contemporary Round Dining Room Table
The round mahogany dining table is very versatile. The table is small enough to fit in a breakfast nook or a smaller dining room area. This dining set is not ideal for a larger or formal dining room. It is perfect to add a touch of elegance to a small dining space or a contemporary styled apartment. The mahogany finish of the table gives it a very rich and polished look.
The design of the base of the table gives the table style. The glass table top and mahogany chairs are taken up two notches when the base is added to the picture. There are actually two layers of glass, if you would call it that. The table top used for eating is glass and below there is a smaller glass circle. That second level could be used for some very unique decorating!
The table is very easy to assemble. The average assembly time for this product is about an hour. This is definitely an added bonus if ordering the item and having it shipped. If you know like we do, the costs of assembly can be almost as expensive as the product, or maybe we are cheap.
Things we do not like about the product:
- The light colored cloth seats could be a concern. If you have children or a hole in your chin, this may not be the best option for you. The chair bottoms are made of a light color cotton/polyester. If you really love the table, there is always the option to cover the seats of the chairs with a towel during meals.
- As with shipping any glass items, there is the risk of damage during the delivery process. This came as no surprise. We have returned several glass items that arrived broken with no problem. If you decide to purchase the Poundex Contemporary Round Dining Room Table, check the sellers/stores reviews or policy on damaged items. Nothing is more frustrating or upsetting that receiving a damaged product at no fault of your own and receiving poor service on top of that!
