Hi. I was looking for a large-72 inch round- table and came across one in crate and barrel. Does anyone know whether or not the furniture is going to last. The table itself without shipping and tax was $1500.

I have never had any problems with anything I bought from there, but $1500 sounds pretty steep for a table.

Their furniture tends to be reasonably well made but when you're talking real money, I'd order from Room and Board- not that much more money and their tables are largely solid hardwoods and usually made in the United States. We love the furniture we've gotten from them.

I am not familiar with that brand at all. Beachmouse above believes they may be made in the USA. Just double double check on that one. You do not want to put any formaldehyde or sulfur infested trash furniture in your home reeking havoc on your family's health.

Room and Board is based out of Minnesota, and does a lot of their business by mail/web order. We live in an area where the bricks and mortal stores tend to carry almost entirely a) faux West Indies b) that squishy formless contemporary that just seems ugly and c) kountry krud. Since our taste in furniture runs toward none of the above, we're very glad they're a source for clean-lined design that references a number of different styles. And while they aren't cheap compared to a Rooms to Go, they're a very good value for the quality you get.

I purchased a round table from Crate and Barrel, and the quality is very good. Mine was made in Denmark (not in China).

We have a C & B store here. I love their stuff. However, if you are planning to spend that much for a table, you could find whatever you wanted at most furniture stores. C & B is a few steps up from IKEA....but they are kind of in the same family of furniture quality. Not knocking them because I shop at both stores, but if I had more money to spend, I would shop around before settling.

That sounds a bit steep for a crate and barrel table. There are a lot of american manufacturers that can make a solid wood round for around that price, and then you know that it meets the strict standards of american manufacturers. We have a gorgeous round table from a company call Saloom that is based here in MA. If you go to high quality independent furniture dealers they should be able to get you a quote for a Saloom table.

Hope that helps.

Bought a kitchen nook table at C&B around five years ago. Nice table, but considering I eat at it maybe... 5-10 times a year, it looks pretty worn, and I don't keep junk on it. Also, one of the legs split mysteriously down its length - somewhat noticeable, considering it has an espresso finish, and the inside wood is very light. I think they still carry it, the Madison dinette.
