      Customer comments about Benson 48r Dining Table:

      Love this table! We chose the natural steel and a glass top. It's such an elegant look with four Ansel chairs, but also practical...easy to clean, everything looks great on it. The interesting table base design is a great feature. So happy with this table.

        Customer comments about Benson 42r Dining Table:

        The Benson 42 is a beautiful piece of furniture. Our only complaint is that when we flipped the table upside down to put felt coverings on the bottom of the legs, we discovered holes that we were told were the result of the fabrication process when the table was stained and finished (See attached photos). Our complaint was that they did not bother to fill the scars with some type of putty to prevent future decay. Has anyone else seen this in their Bensons? Is this normal?

        Service and delivery comments:

        The delivery guys called ahead of time as requested. We appreciated that. This allowed us to give them directions once they arrived at our complex. They forgot one of the plastic coverings that go on the bottom of the table leg, but they did mail it to us within a day. Thank you, guys!

            Table arrived with poor and damaged finish. Replacement process was mannerly but slow (and somewhat inconvenient). Original delivery was missing part. Parts arrived separately from replacement table base, and did not fit replacement base.....so, nice design, sturdy, but product and delivery were troublesome.....

              I love my new dining room table. I selected a clear glass top for it and black leather Madridchairs. It is so sharp looking and fits so well into my small dining space. I love the modern frame (it looks like a work of art) and the clear glass top really makes the room look airy. I love the madrid chairs as well. It is such a modern clean combination.[...]

                      We bought the benson table with the cherry wood top. I love the look of this table in the eating area off our kitchen.

                      However, the wood top is hard keep clean. You have to stay on top of sweat marks from drink glasses. It also seems easy to scuff and mark while performing every day tasks.

                      While putting the table together, my husband, a professional carpenter, commented that the frame/base wasn't painted very well.

                      All in all, it's a good buy.

                          A:

                          Because of the design of the table’s base and the four legs at the corners, this table wouldn’t seat six comfortably. There is 28.25” inches between each of the four legs which wouldn’t allow for two chairs. Squeezing in six diners would require two people to straddle legs.

                          A:

                          The space between two table legs on the Benson is approximately 23". It is best to leave a bit of room for sliding the chair in and out from the table. A 20-21 inch wide chair should work well.
