Walker Edison Furniture Company Walker Edison Glass Oval Coffee Table – Decent product for the price

Some of the reviews said it was a bit too low or something but it is just perfect to us.

Cheap, sturdy, and well-designed. Uh, easy to assemble, but you need to be paying attention to detail. I’m delighted with the finished table. However i can see why some reviewers saw it as wobbly or whatever. Halfway through the build, you’ve got four rods firmly screwed into the top, yet the damn things appear to flop around maybe 5 degrees or more because of loose tolerances between the male and female threads. That seems ominous, and i suspect that a number of people stopped at that point and returned it. But if you complete the build, the wobble completely disappears, because the table is what is called a ‘tension structure’; iow, when you screw the legs tight, the resulting tensile force powerfully *pulls* on the rods, putting an equal and opposite compressive force on the shiny tubes. It is these balancing forces that drive the structure into rigid alignment. There are a couple of issues that require attention while building the thing.

I lifted one piece of the ‘frosted’ glass out of the box and the moisture from my thumb wiped out a portion of the ‘frosting’. The table looks great, and is a really nice value. Just be careful handling the ‘frosted’ glass cause that stuff just wipes right off. Here are the specifications for the Walker Edison Furniture Company Walker Edison Glass Oval Coffee Table:

  • Oval-shape with distinct curving legs
  • Beveled, tempered safety glass
  • Frosted finish on lower shelving
  • Sparkling steel legs
  • Ships ready-to-assemble with step-by-step instructions

Smaller than i thought it would be but still a cute little coffee table. Super easy to put together (15 minutes, tops) and very attractive once completed. No damage/flaws to the product upon receipt and it has held up well over the last few weeks i’ve had it. The bottom pieces are frosted glass that appear periwinkle or gray-ish depending on the light.

We have cats that scratch furniture and i avoid buying wooden furniture. This glass coffee table is perfect for my 20ftx13ft sized living-dining room (no scratching, easy to clean). I have hardwood floors and unlike some reviews here, it is not wobbly or uneven. It is sturdy even when my naughty cat jumps and sleeps on it. I put magazines on the lower shelves (the color is not as blue as it looks here but the shelves are slightly frosted). I am extremely happy with this product. This table compliments our ikea klippan loveseat well. If you have big pieces of furniture or if your room is too big ,this may not be ideal since it will look small but for a small living room with contemporary couches, it is a good buy.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Decent product for the price
  • Wobble? Rickety? Not if assembled thoughtfully.
  • I am super happy with this purchase Item size is perfect if

Purchased a new living room set and this piece complemented the contemporary style. Assembly was simple and directions were well documented. Quality was as expected and shipped without damage; packing was exceptional to avoid damage.

Easy set up and great quality for the price.

This table is a little smaller than i thought but it makes my living room look so much bigger. It was relatively easy to put together. It’s very modern looking – i love it.

I love how it looks in my living room. It’s perfect for the amount of space i have. And the shipping was so fast.

I am always a little intimidated when it comes to putting any furniture piece together -not just for the challenge of it as i am not bob the builder but also because of how it will appear once done. . I am so pleased with the easy instructions and also the finished product it is perfect. It is small in size for those with small spaces.

This just looks amazing; we are extremely happy to have purchased it. Assembly is easy, hardly takes few minutes. Table is pretty big and strong than we expected.

It is very securely packaged and arrived without any damage. Box is not heavy, easy for one person to carry. All parts were labeled with both written directions and pictures and no tools needed for assembly. Took maybe 5 minutes to put together. Each part had small numbered sticker on it which came off easily, one of the frosted glass pieces had it on surface so there is clear spot left where it was but not really noticeable. The only negative thing, which is why it is only 4 stars is they have a 4×4 inch sticker on surface of clear glass. . The top of the table that does not come off. I spent about 10+ minutes on it, more than twice as long as actual assembly.

Small but i guess i overestimated the size. One leg broke shortly after purchase (2 months after purchase). I ordered it late one night and the next morning before 11 am it was already at my door.

Looks nice how ever this piece is excellent for a small living room area but will not look good on a large living area (1000 sft). Other than that im happy easy to put together.

Ok for the price but smaller than expected, it’s a nice table for an small room. We thought it was a bit bigger though. Sometimes is not strong enough.

This table is exactly what i wanted. Yes, it is small, so measure it out before you order to make sure it’s the right size for your room. It’s perfect in my tiny living room, looks very smart. It’s very easy to put together. No tools and a woman can do it easily. The glass top is a bit heavy but that makes it sturdy. Excellent instructions, very clear, and a clever design. It looks exactly like the picture.

To begin- i would expect to pay more for just the slab of glass that makes up the top portion of this table. I have been putting together a lot of furniture as i just moved and this piece was a breeze to assemble. Everything was in tact- the instructions were pretty straight forward and the table was constructed in about 15-20 minutes. The box is quite heavy so that is a consideration if you need to carry it far once it makes it to your doorstep. For a small living space, i can say that this is- by far- the best inexpensive furniture purchase i have made so far. Buy it- i doubt you will be disappointed.

I needed something small for my small, oddly shaped living room. Gives it a nice modern look.

Scratch resistant and not too heavy to scoot or pick.

Very nice and very easy to put together.

This table is small and does wonders in a corner or against the wall holding decorative items or pictures. I was actually pleased on how easy it was putting it together by myself, each piece is numbered with stickers which i recommend taking the stickers off as you place each piece in tack. It makes an easier clean up instead of going back peeling each sticker off after the table is put together.
