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

By walnut

from Chicago, IL

Style Classic/traditional

Pros

  • Great Design

Cons

  • Difficult to clean
  • Shows water marks

Best Uses

  • 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.

    Customer comments about Ventura 96x42 Dining Table:

    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.

    Customer comments about Ventura 84x42 Dining Table:

    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

    Pros

    • Great Design

      • Formal dining

      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!

        Love the look and design of this table. We had to send the first one back upon delivery because there was a patch where the finish was different from the rest of the table. They delivery guys took it back and arranged to have a new table delivered the next week.

        The table is easy to clean with a damp cloth. It does seem to chip a little easy. My son banged a coaster into the side and left a chip. Otherwise the finish has held up great after 3 weeks of use.

          The table is drop dead gorgeous. The finish is PERFECTION. I can't attest to the durability because I've only had it two days, but I'm in love with it. It looks high end without being TOO fancy. I was nervous about the 84 inches, but I felt like the 96 was too big for the room. 84 turned out to be just right. I can comfortably seat 6, (I ordered the Jake chairs in white to go with the table.) I can seat in 8 if needed, and let's face it, more than that I'm staging a buffet anyway. I love the walnut. It has a beautiful tone and looks amazing with the white chairs. The whole set just pops. Thanks Room & Board!

            Hi. I have the 84" table in Walnut and love it! I was thinking though that I might like to get a pad for it if I ever wanted to use a tablecloth with a lot of guests or buffet (to protect it). Normally I just leave the beautiful wood exposed. Do you make pads for the table or recommend someone who does? Thanks!

              Because the legs on the Ventura are inset from the edge, the space between the table legs is 61" on a 96" table. This isn't enough space for three Jansen chairs and one of the chairs would have to deal with the table leg.

              A:

              Because this is natural walnut without any color added to the finish, it will lighten over time. Walnut naturally lightens as it is exposed to light. The rich grain detail and dark highlights are part of the wood but with time the overall look like can be similar to cherry.
