    Great table to go with our refreshed kitchen. Chose the clear glass top which helps make it blend better into the room, just testing my skills at keeping the glass clean, but not a deal breaker.
    Bought Madrid Chairs in grey to make the set.

      Problem with The White Glass Top

        Customer comments about Benson 42r Dining Table in Stainless Steel:

        My family and I found The Benson to be perfect for our dining area without sacrificing quality and style. One of the things that attracted us were the various top options available. Unfortunately, we have deep regrets with our decision to go with the White Glass Top. Living in a small apartment...The Benson serves as a multi-funtional table for us. Although the glass is heavy and does not wobble, it DOES, shift. In less than two years our table grips have worn and fall frequently. As a result, the white paint scratches (too easily for my liking). We now have several unsightly scratches that show through the table. If I knew that the White finish was so poor, I would have went with another top or Krazy-Glued the grips to the base. I have spoken to Room and Board and there isn't a touch up kit available for this issue.

          The quality of this table is fantastic--I was surprised how thick (and heavy) the glass top was which is great so it doesn't slide around. The frame is very heavy and sturdy as well.

          Customer comments about Benson 48r Dining Table:

          This is our breakfast nook table. By itself, it looks more like office furniture but we bought the Afton chairs in cherry to go around it and it warms the table right up. Our previous breakfast table was also a round glass table but over time the glass kept sliding on the cyclindrical frame. I felt like our old table was an accident waiting to happen. This table's glass is quite heavy, sitting on rubber nubs but with a sturdy, flat frame below making me very confident that the glass isn't going to slide over time. This table also pairs with a variety of chairs from very casual to upscale dining or office chairs.

          The only functional thing that I didn't even know I would miss is that this table doesn't have any supports at the bottom meaning that there's no place to put your feet up. I guess my old table had this support structure and I find myself still trying to put my feet up and they're just flopping to the floor! Of course, a structure at the bottom would change the look as well.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The guys were right on time and super-friendly. Called first just like I asked of them (even though I didn't make the call request at the time of scheduling the delivery and only a day prior). It's nice when the system actually works!

            Customer comments about Benson 42r Dining Table in Stainless Steel:

            We have a very small dining area and this table fits perfect and looks fantastic. We were concerned based on some reviews that the 42" table was too small for everyday use, but it's perfect for 4 without feeling too cramped. We have the glass top, which cleans very easily, even if it needs to be cleaned after every use on account of our 3 year old :) It's also pretty lightweight so it's easy to move around to clean underneath. Overall we are extremely happy with our purchase, along with all of the other R&B furniture in our house!

            I was skeptical. I thought it might wobble or not take the weight of elbows on table. It's great. There hasn't been a single moment when I was worried. It looks very cool (great with our Eames chairs) and when it's clean it's just so cool. But! Glass cleaner and placemats are a must. It's kind of a loud table in that respect. Still -- I love it.

                  A:

                  Outdoor glass is tempered glass and is extremely vulnerable to shattering when hit on the edge. Because the edge of the glass would be exposed on this table base, we do not recommend its use.

                Guys,

                Moronic question here, but is the 42" the radius? Diameter?

                  Any of the wood top options are shipped already attached to the base. Our drivers will place the glass or stone tops on the base for you. With white glove delivery, we will make sure that the table is ready to use when the drivers leave.

                  The table top glass is not tempered. It is float glass and is a better type of glass for table top surfaces. Tempered glass is best used in upright applications such as windows, shower doors, mirrors, etc. Stocked glass sizes are made in China.

                Is it possible to purchase a base without a top material? I have a 48" round glass top and am looking for a different base.

                Q:

                How does the top attach to the table? Does it just rest there based on its own weight? I'm concerned about the top moving around if leaned on. In particular, if I select a wood top, can it attach with screws or other fasteners?

                  A:

                  The wood table tops attach to the base with screws into the underside of the top. The stone and glass tops rest on the base and their weight holds them in place. There is overhang on the table top so if significant weight is put on the edge, the top could tip up.
