House by John Lewis Lia 10 Seater Extending Dining Table
Table is lovely, much bigger than we expected with two extending pieces, these have to be stored separately as design of table doesn't allow them to be stored within the table; have read some of the other reviews about the table marking easily so am obsessively using placemats and coasters and table cloth, if the top gets ruined over time, will probably just buy a new table top as the legs and extending pieces can be removed and re-used

Very Good Value for Money
Spent a long time looking for a very plain, extendable dining table. This one is perfect for our needs. It's a really solid, stable table (withstands a teenager in a wheelchair clattering into it and truly excellent for the price. You do get marks on the table, but nothing that a bit of Cif wont shift, or if it's something really stubborn Indian Takeaway), a paste of biological washing powder sorted it out..

We purchased this table and it was delivered on the 16th October and we were happy when we put it together and it was just what we wanted for our kitchen in our new home. However, I. Have to agree with previous comments. It does mark very easily (we do not have any children!) and I am very careful about cleaning it but it just seems to have several marks on it now that will not come off. So six months down the line I am not sure what it is going to look like. We purchased from John Lewis for quality and think you do pay a bit more for quality but I would like some advice please.

Looks great but does mark easily
This table looks great in our kitchen with our Eames eiffel chairs. It is very heavy and sturdy and has rounded corners which is great as we have a toddler. However, I agree with the other reviews that the surface marks really really easily. Where I have tried to wipe these off with a non-scratch sponge the shiny surface has come away leaving matt areas so it now doesn't look quite so great!

Well built, well priced.
An excellent table with clean lines. Delivery service was excellent and delivery timing information was excellent. No gripes.

We chose this table as it looked practical and hard wearing but we are so disappointed. The table top marks very easily even though we always use place mats or table cloth. Obviously you expect a few scratches but it is as if the surface has come off making it very hard to wipe with a damp cloth (as recommended in the care instructions) and now it just looks a mess. We have had the table over three months so cannot return. Would not recommend.

Looks lovely NOT practical
We lovely the look and the size of this table but after getting rid of our old table and the packaging for the new one we noticed that the black edging chipped due to a chair banging against the edge within a couple of days and the surface marks really easily. I wouldnt recommend it if you have children who might want to use felt pens on it either! Disaster and by now we have no redress to return it. Disappointing!

Perfect for my requirements
I have been looking for a table which would be suitable for an art studio with a washable surface that would not look like a traditional kitchen table. The sleek lines look amazing in the space and fit into the contemporary look of the room. The extension leaves are easy to tuck away behind another piece of furniture and will be used for family gatherings. I was amazed by the service and efficiency of the John Lewis delivery service when they erected the table for me and took away all the packaging. An excellent product and service - very refreshing!
