Rated 5 out of 5 by ABJB2015 Hardwearing and beautiful
We had this table in our sights for a while and ordered both the table and the bench as soon as we exchanged contracts on our new house. We have since bought the side table and the sideboard to go in our open plan living area.
Delighted with the feel and solidness of both, but I agree with comments on here that the table and the other items should be treated with a matt finish. I coated both the bench and the table with a matt varnish from B&Q the day after we bought them to stop ring marks and grease stains from food. Stains wipe off now and it doesn't detract from the look of the naturally beautiful wood.
We have even managed to get 8 around the table, we went for 5 of the John Lewis Dominique Dining Chairs in Taupe as a muted contrast to the wood and metal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cramptons Good quality, love mine!
Really pleased with it. Good strong sturdy table. Had to treat with Osmo oil as was not totally sealed, water marks visible after leaving glasses etc on but fine once treated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Exige28 Fantastic table
This table looks fantastic in our dining room. Very easy to put together, although quite heavy so did require two people. The wooden surface is textured and a little rough. We've used some contrasting wooden chairs to compliment it. The slightly industrial looks works well against an otherwise classic room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NKC21 Poor quality
Terrible quality pre-assembly - the main frame, which comes already attached to the table top, has several screws at one end which protrude up through the table surface. The supplier appears to have sanded the local area on the surface in an attempt to conceal fault, but this has left a very sharp point still sticking up on one screw, and also several sanded patches which are lighter than surrounding area. Really disappointed as otherwise table looks great, and one viewed in store was fine. Have requested return for refund, (sending pictures to show issues), but yet to hear back from customer services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeGoose Very nice
Really happy with this. Great quality, solid wood. Excellent parts and easy to put together (albeit very, very heavy).
I've got the whole set of stuff and really happy overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lw83 Classy, solid, great looking!
We've admired this table for ages and finally have a house to put it in! Didn't disappoint! Easy delivery, easy to assemble and looks brilliant. We also got the bench to go with it, and as one person asked, it fits under the table perfectly, the legs don't get in the way. Comes with felt pads under the legs so doesn't scratch a floor when moved. No complaints at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthLondonSarah Top table!
Couldn't be happier with my purchase. Stalked the JL website every day until the 8 seater came back into stock and so glad I did!
Love the rustic, industrial look of the wood and solid iron legs.
Have teamed with 4 gunmetal Tolix chairs - just hoping the Calia bench comes back into stock soon too. Bravo JL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel82 Beautiful rustic/industrial look table
Absolutely love this table & couldn't believe my luck after admiring it for ages to find it half price in the January clearance sale at my local JL - I also got matching sideboard & have ordered a bench which is now out of stock so I await that like the reviewer below!
It arrived today, delivery great as you would expect from JL.
Came already assembled as had been on display when I purchased in the sale so no issues putting it together.
It is rough to touch as mentioned in previous reviews but for me this just adds to its beauty & rustic look.
It probably will be hard to clean as rough/unfinished & I imagine it will stain easily if anything is spilt on it - but I love it and it looks fab!
One thing I was unsure of was what style chair would go (opposite bench one one side) I don't like the tolix style & didn't want leather/upholstered. I ended up ordering the Asta chairs in mocha after seeing them by chance & they look great with it.
