Hi JamesJust a quick line to say we received the table last weekend. We are very pleased with it, as its always a worry buying and not viewing, but that worry is now parked away as it’s a lovely piece. Once again thanks, will come back soon as we also need a mahogany table and chairs for the dining room.BestSteve
Just to say we’re delighted with the table – it’s already had 5 big dinner parties around it and been a huge success. Thank you and also the delivery boys who were very helpful
Dear James! The table has arrived safely. We are over the moon! What a delightful Piece of furniture. Kind regards Ellen
