          Customer comments about Parsons 30x20 24h End Table:

          These are simple, elegant, chic end tables. I have a walnut coffee table from Christian Liagre, so initially I thought I'd get the walnut top. But walnut can be tricky to match, and after visiting the R&B store in Soho, I opted for the charcoal finish maple. I'm so glad I did. The result is gorgeous, basically an all-black effect with a warm tone and some interesting but subtle wood grain on the top. The dimensions are ample and perfect for my loft space, maybe too large for a small apartment. There's room for a large table lamp, drink and book. I saw other finishes at the store but I can't imagine a better combination than this. Every room needs some dark accents.

            Customer comments about Parsons 30x20 24h End Table:

            I loved the look of it in the store, but in my house, it was very large. I had 2 at the ends of a large couch in a fairly large room, but they still stood out. Also they looked very cold, the marble top contributed to that, plus it was a lighter marble which did not contrast well with the dark steel in my house (although it looked nice in the store).

            I exchanged for the Berkeley wood end tables which are really great, very happy with them and with the storage of the Berkeley as well. Wood turned out to be a much better look than marble.

            I actually have a parsons table for my dining room and it's great there, with a darker marble top, so the table is great, i just didn't like it as a side table.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Always a pleasure to deal with R&B, I exchanged both items for other items and it was really effortless. I really appreciate that I could try things out and then change my mind.

            The initial delivery and exchange were both quick and painless.

                Customer comments about Parsons 18sq 22h End Table:

                I bought 1 of the Parsons tables with a reclaimed chestnut top to see how I would like it and loved it so much that I ordered another one the very next day to replace my coffee table. The wood is warm and beautiful and was the perfect choice for integrating lighter-colored wood into my home that is filled with black and espresso-stained furniture.

                The only con I can think of, and I wouldn't necessarily call it a con, is the reclaimed wood tops have a different kind of finish than the other wood tables from R&B, and I have to be extra-diligent with having liquids on them. The good news is it sounds like a rather easy process to fix should an accident occur.

                    I ordered the base to hold a marble top that I have had for a long time. Now that I have it I realize that it is a few inches taller than the base I had previously. Aside from the fact that I think it is too high and therefore a bit out of proportion in the room, I like the general look of it.

                            Marble is a porous material and can stain. We recommend that you always use coasters, trivets and felt pads to prevent stains.

                          I'm looking at the Parsons end table and the Rand end table. We don't have a Room and Board in Jacksonville so I can't see these in person. What is the difference between these two? Are the legs the same dimensions?

                            A:

                            The Parsons table has 2" square tubing, and the table top sits on the fully visible horizontal bars of the base. The Rand table legs are 1" x 3" rectangle tubing, and the table top sits on horizontal bars that are set in. This gives the illusion that the table top is floating.

                          I want to buy two parson's end tables to sit on either side of my sofa, and I was considering the solid maple top. Will this maple top have a protective "finish" on it? Or does it show water ring stains pretty easily when someone puts a glass on it? I'm just wondering if I should switch and choose the quartz or granite top for more durability. This is a vacation home and people will be putting glasses on the end tables all the time. I was just wondering if the maple top might be a mistake? Seems like the buff-colored quartz will be more durable and worry-free and yet, the color is likely a bit similar to the maple, don't you think?

                            The solid wood tops are finished with a lacquer finish. The lacquer is there enhance the beauty of the wood and does provide some protection, but moisture and heat can damage any wood finish. It would be advised to use coasters and trivets. The quartz top is tougher than granite, and more resistant to cracks, chips, scratches. Its high gloss finish and naturally non-porous nature also makes it resistant to stains. Room & Board offers 4x4 top samples that can be ordered and returned, and is a great way to view these top options in person. http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/product/detail.do?productGroup=24960

                          Q:

                          Are the heights listed before or after the top is on the base? The glass, wood, and stone tops look to be different thicknesses. So the 24 inch table with a glass top looks shorter than the 24 inch table with the wood top. I'm looking for a 22 inch table, so would a 20 inch have added height with a wood top, or would a 24 inch be even taller with the wood?

                            The heights given are for the overall finished height and you'll see that we give dimensions in one inch increments. The glass tops are 1/2" thick and the wood tops are an 1" thick so a difference, yes, and the glass would be a 1/2" shorter than the overall dimensions.
                            If the 22" height is important, you might consider a custom size. Again the dimensions shown would be for the finished height with a wood top. http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/customproduct/bytheinch/topandbase/detail.do?productGroupKey=CST_PARSONS_TAB_2

                          Q:

                          Hello,

                          Do you have the flexibility of going by half inch increment? (or by 1 inch only.) I'm willing to pay for the full inch

                          Thanks
                          Mike

                            The custom program with our vendor keeps us to the one inch increments.
