And yours, too, apparently.

We’re usually the first to advise readers to do their due diligence—confirming quality materials, hardware, and finishes—before investing in furniture from Amazon. That’s because while there are plenty of affordable alternatives to high-end designs hiding among the e-tailer’s assortment, we often find that, after considerable research, most would-be scores are too good to be true. Typically, we’ll skip anything that isn’t from a preferred storefront (Kartell, Yamazaki, Stone & Beam, and the like) or lacks a bevy of positive reviews. This slatted dining table doesn’t land in either category, but since it already wound up in a few of your carts, we had to give it a closer look.

A mere six shoppers contribute to its rare-for-furniture 4.7-star rating, but we stopped questioning their purchasing decision after realizing nearly half are accompanied with impressive photos of the piece. It looks far more stunning than the listing’s renderings. After poring over the product details, plus being charmed by the natural wood grain and fluted base as seen in real-life captures, we can confidently say this isn’t a risky buy—and here’s why.

For one, the table is sold in three versatile sizes—all at a height of 29.9 inches—which means it’s a great fit for small spaces. But that doesn’t compromise its roominess; one owner, who went with the largest option, was able to comfortably fit four chairs around it. We’ve also deduced that the base is a compilation of solid strips of ash and the round top appears to be an engineered construction. It ships in two boxes, and assembly is “supereasy,” one buyer writes; just a few screws, included, join the top and pillar bottom together.

To note: A couple of comments do express concern about the strength of the finish (coasters are recommended!). Most are impressed by its sturdiness, though. “I am very satisfied with the price!” one reviewer enthusiastically shares. “It looks very high-end,” another adds. 

In fact, after looking at several similar styles from retailers like Lulu and Georgia, West Elm, and Burke Decor, they were all priced plenty higher—as in, more than double—despite the fact that a couple also featured veneer tabletops. There’s even fewer compact choices, too, making this Amazon pick far more multifunctional (as evidenced by one shopper tapping it for their entryway). Unlike most of our favorites from the e-commerce giant, however, you’ll have to wait a little longer than two days for it to arrive. But as multiple shoppers already note, it’s “worth it,” especially coupled with the $50 coupon. Who doesn’t love a luxe look for less?
