Beautiful table that is true to the photos. Has a matt finish that does tend to catch pet hairs, but is easy to clean spills etc. The base was easy to put together, but definitely requires two people - both for holding while the bolts are screwed in, and for lifting the table once the ceramic top is secured. The delivery company used was great and I was kept informed throughout the process, which only took two days from order to delivery! Great service and quality product. Would recommend.
