This dining set is very nice : the chairs are strongs and good looking. But the table top is very soft, so you have to be really carefull with it: in fact I had a problem the first day with another furniture whose pacaging was bad, and I make the mistake to put it on the table... I didn't saw tat first that there was a nail going through the card boxe, and the damage on the table top is really bad... So don't put anything hard on this table!!!
