John Lewis Calia 8 Seater Dining Table
Modern Industrial Table- Stylish
We also purchased the Calia matching bench.
Delivery was quick.
It's easy to assemble.
Great quality and looks fantastic in our kitchen.
The wood is unpolished and the legs have a galvanised finish giving it a modern industrial look.
Very Happy Customers!

Great quality table. It is large so check and recheck your measurements. Looks rustic but is very solid with steel bars under the wooden top. Very heavy.. Great purchase.

Great design and value for money!
The design of the Calia table makes it seem a lot more expensive than it really is - quite good value for the quality and unusual shape! it's sturdy and was easy to put together (2 people, 10 mins)

I absolutely love the way this table looks. We got 8 seater and we could not be happier. Somebody has mentioned that the wood is rough... and this is true. We have got 5 year old son and both little hands and table needed protection. We have covered the table with two layers of varnish and this solution works perfectly so far.
This is fantastic, unique table and I am more than happy with this product.

Well done John Lewis!!!!
We ordered the table and two benches 4 weeks ago having seen them in our local John Lewis branch. We were slightly apprehensive following a few reviews about splinters and roughness!!
Table and two benches were delivered ahead of expected delivery date; assembly seamless, if a little heavy; definitely a two man, (or one man, one determined woman) job!!!
If there were any issues with roughness and splinters, they have certainly been smoothed out!!!!
I have cleaned up the remnants of a lunch consisting of crumbly baguettes and kettle crisps with a quick hoover 'in the grooves' with the hand held Dyson, but equally a quick brush is all it requires!!!
Looks gorgeous, fitting with an either modern or classic decor!
Totally thrilled with purchase, highly recommend and we are very fussy shoppers!!!!!!

Excellent table, very simple to construct, VERY happy
After having seen the table in the Peter Jones branch in Chelsea, we set our heart on this sizeable table with it's industrial look.
Delivery, as always, by JL was highly efficient and despite concerns about having to put the table together ourselves (which involved just screwing on the legs), it could not have been more simple.
Now it's our favourite bit of furniture in our new flat and is always commented upon favourably by our guests.
I have no problem cleaning the table and love the texture of the wood. We also bought the matching bench which fits perfectly and provides enough space for 4 (at a squeeze!) but more comfortably for 3.

Great design, pity about the execution
Received the replacement for the original I had delivered (promised pre Christmas delivered well after) in January. This is a solid, stylish edgy design that looks great and is exactly what I am looking for in the kitchen.
The finish quality leaves a lot to be desired. The first one delivered was a splinter hazard. The undersides were properly finished but the work surface was covered with poor quality deeply grooved wood that was the perfect place for crumbs etc.,. to hide in quantity. Cleaning had to be done with a brush. Using a cloth was impossible without getting splinters in our fingers. Clothing snagged on the wood as well. It was replaced last night - much to the amusement of the excellent delivery and assembly team one of there number got a splinter in his hand whilst removing the original.
The replacement is better, but still has areas where the surface is deeply grooved and spllntering inevitable, albeit on a(I hope) reduced scale). I have been promised a house visit from an engineer and await his/her comment.

Really like the table but one screw did not match up when fixing the legs, so i have had to leave it out. Table will be safe enough to use but for the money spent I would not expect this to happen
