John Lewis Ellis 6-8 Seater Extending Butterfly Dining Table
I ordered this table on line without ever actually seeing it. I was reasured by the fact that I trust John Lewis for quality and service. I have not been dissappointed. The table is beautiful and extends easily. The easy to care for finish is a blessing. This table is a joy to use and to look at. I would recommend this table to all my friends.

Really lovely table
I have recently purchased this table (along with the chairs and narrow bookcase from the co-ordinating range) and am really pleased with it. I was slightly concerned that it looked a little 'too orange' and the grain possibly a little 'old fashioned' in the store and wouldn't match my existing oak furniture. However, I think the store lighting affected the colour and grain as it does not look 'orange' at all, It looks modern and blends very nicely with existing furniture.
Although the table needed assembling, this was very straightforward provided you have two people to be able manage the weight of turning the table over once the legs are attached.
As always, the deleivery staff were polite, friedly and corteous. One of the many reasons I will continue to buy from John Lewis.

well designed and easy to extend
We bought this table last year and have been very happy with it. There was a fault with the original (a hole was drilled on the wrong place so we couldn't assemble it) but JL quickly replaced it. It looks like a high quality item but what we like best about it is how well designed it is - it's so easy to extend and there are no loose parts. It just folds out elegantly and is easy to fold back again. The whole process only takes a minute or so.

Elegant and practical, it does what it says on the tin ie extends easily to seat 8 (but I had 10 round it for its first use!). Very firm, whether in extended or normal mode, and the wipe-clean finish makes for easy maitenance.

Beautiful Table, perfect for dinner parties.
Beautiful table with a lovely finish. Great for dinner parties; fits 8 comfortably and 10 at a bit of a squeeze! Excellent value for money.

Not quite John Lewis Standard!
This table is functional and it works and looks fine at first glance but the gap between the leaves is always just a tiny bit open and it's not as wonderfully well made as we are used to with John Lewis furniture to be honest. This really is the bottom end of the John Lewis Range.

The table is lovely, very well made and finished, exactly what we wanted. Quick delivery and very nice and efficient delivery guys as well.
