Customer comments about Saarinen 78x48 Oval Dining Table:

Mixed feelings about the table. The top is quite handsome, but the underside of the tabletop is as rough as an unhewn board. Be careful not to scrape anything against the underside accidentally or rub a leg against it. We expected a better end to end product from R&B.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I have to comment on the excellent service that Room & Board provided. I bought a floor model version at a discount. When they moved the table to the warehouse, they broke it. Room and Board called, informed me of the situation, and asked me to choose another delivery date for the new table they are replacing it with, at the discounted price. Great Service!

        Customer comments about Saarinen 47r Dining Table:

        I love this table and have coveted it for years. It is about 2K cheaper at R&B than at other retail stores and now I know why. I know that stone can absorb liquids, so I was planning to be careful with red wine, coffee, etc. But with the very first use, I set down some water glasses which left rings on the marble. I'm terribly disappointed - how can a table used for dining be this prone to water? I returned the table and was charged a 10% fee.

        If you want the real Saarinen table, pay full price and get it elsewhere. You get what you pay for.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Yes. I was relieved that Customer Service would allow me to return it.

              We love the way this table looks but the finish on the marble scratches off way, way too easily, making it very difficult to clean. Major $$$$ spent and the top is already scratched——and by a relatively soft textured sponge. Almost wish I had gotten a cheaper knockoff version elsewhere with a better coat of finish. The design of the table suggests it is meant to be hardy (we thought that's what getting a stone top would mean). Definitely not good if you have kids.

                We do love the appearance of this table. Bought at Room & Board because it was less expensive than the competitor. While we understood that the finish (unlike the competitor's) was not sealed we never, ever expected it to retain the random, unexplainable marks and scratches which is has sustained. Have never used it to prepare food on, have not dribbled or dropped anything acidic, yet it has stains on it which I cannot remove with simple soap and water. It is polished marble and I cannot understand why this has happened, sealed or not. Disappointed.

                    A:

                    The marble top on the Saarinen dining table does not have a sealant. The marble top is naturally polished. You can use your own stone top sealer, however a sealer may cause the marble to yellow. The Saarinen table is made to the designers original specifications and natural patina and lifemarks will occur with age. Marble is porous and will stain if spills aren't cleaned immediately.

                    The Saarinen 47r dining table top comes with a wood support attached to the underside of the top. The base has a threaded bolt that goes through the center of the base and is then attached to the wood support plate. Marble thickness on Saarinen dining table top is 3/4 inch and weighs approximately 165 lbs. The top has a polished finish.
