Nice but there's a big problem

  • Poor finish

    Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

    Purchased this table (84 inch length) in the cherry finish along with six Doyle chairs. I love the look of it, the unusual shape and the petite size work really well in the somewhat small dining room of my 1950's era house.

    I am really disappointed in the finish however. Our table was delivered only six weeks ago, within a month the table top had obvious damage from UV light. We could clearly see outlines of where the placemats had been.

    After the fact, I looked at the care recommendations from R&B which indicate that "over time, air and sunlight will change the color of natural wood". This phenomenon is no surprise to me, but it is surprising that the finish on this table didn't include (apparently) any kind of UV protectant. The table was not inexpensive and I'm disappointed that it's already looking bad after not even two months.

    I am submitting a complaint to R&B customer service. If possible, I'll update this review and share their response.

    Additionally I'm taking care to remove the placemats after meals and to close my blinds to keep out the sun. (I live in Seattle, it pains me to shut out the sunshine on days when the sun is actually out!)

    Bottom Line: I really do like the shape, size and style of this table and I would recommend this to a friend but I'd also warn them to protect it from the sun.

      Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

      This table is absolutely gorgeous. I originally bought a west elm table but after seeing it in the store and realizing how cheaply it was made I canceled the order and splurged on this one. I haven't seen any scratches or watermarks yet but I've been very careful and have been using placemats and coasters. I'm not sure how durable it is but I don't want to damage it since it was quite a bit more than I wanted to spend. Looks gorgeous though and I would buy it again.

      Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

      I unwraped my new table only to find a 2'x 2' "milky" square in the finish of it. I was sure that when informed R&B of this flaw that they would replace the table. They did not. They have indicated that it should correct itself eventually and after 6 months of back and forth gave me a credit of $300.

      I do not see this problem correcting itself any time soon, if ever. I don't know why R&B feels like this would be acceptable to a customer. What is the point of putting a craftsman signature on the piece if you won't stand behind it? Very disappointed and want my money back in full or be sent a new table.

      I would also agree with others that this table is very soft and will scratch easily.

      Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

      I love the design of this table, but I am having issues with the finish. The lacquer is peeling in multiple areas and the table will scratch from just setting a plate down. I am disappointed as I was so excited to finally have a nice dining room table that would last for years to come.

      water spots

      • Formal dining

      Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

      The design of the Ventura table is great. We've had so many positive comments on the style. The finish on the walnut has not appeared to scratch as easily as others have mentioned in reviews. However, the finish does show water spots very easily and they do not come out! We tried every known remedy for water spots and they simply won't come out, which is really disappointing as the table is otherwise the centerpiece of the dining room.

      If you use this dining table to actually dine upon, then a waterproof tablecloth is reccommended. I've never had a piece of finished furniture that shows spots so easily. Even the cheap built-it-yourself furniture I had in the past didn't spot like this.

        This table is beautiful, however, not durable enough. Definitely not for every day use. I was looking for a modern table with clean lines for my kitchen. It is not durable enough for a kitchen and I wish someone would have told me that. (I did go to a store to see it). I put a plate that came from a microwave on it and now have a ring on the table. Also, it scratches very easily. I am a bit disappointed. Good thing it was not too expensive.

        The paint is very easy to get scratched, scarred, or discolored. not good for regular day to day family use. also, when I called today to the customer service 1/8/13 (forgot the lady's name), she was very arrogant and not helpful, and dishonest about the problem with the product. the talbe is designed for people to use, and it should take normal wear and tear well, after all, it's not an art work for you just to look at! I am very disappointed with R&B.

        The 96x42 Table

          Customer comments about Ventura 96x42 Dining Table:

          It's as beautiful as it looks in person. We have it in walnut. We wanted a big table that could fit 8-10 people, for sure it comfortably fits 8, 10 will be a squeeze. We set it up with some vintage teak Danish modern chairs. Looks phenomenal.

          We also ordered a table top cover since we will use this as a daily table for the family. We want to keep the table top from getting destroyed by our kids, so we ordered a table top from a company found online. I was a little disappointed that Room and Board was not helpful in providing me with specs for the table, nor would they recommend a company that manufactures a table top cover. The unconventional shape was a bit challenging to measure and outline for the table top company. Room and Board could have saved me some time and effort by just giving me the specs.

          So after about 1 months of having it, it's a great table, no complaints about it on my end.

          Customer comments about Ventura 72x42 Dining Table:

          We purchased this table for our dining area, which is the center of the apartment and therefore a mix of kitchen, formal dining, and work area. The cherry is beautiful; we almost switched to walnut and I'm glad we didn't. It's warm and welcoming. The shape is unique, combining the best things about round and rectangular tables into one package. It feels light and airy despite being fairly large in size and seating six comfortably. Given the reviews about scratches, nicks, etc., we got some Chilewich placemats for it that do the trick. We also chose more traditional cafe chairs, which blend in just fine with its clean lines. Thanks, Room and Board!
