Altra Owen Retro End Table : Really nice especially for how inexpensive it was

Great minimalist, but sturdy end table. This table is extremely simple to construct. You just screw in 8 screws with the allen wrench and you’re set. The table looks great with its neutral colors, as pictured. My only concern is with the durability of the surface. It seems like the coating may be easy to chip or come off with a wet glass or sticky object, so i’d definitely recommend using coasters. I also added some tiny felt pads to the iron-type legs to make sure they don’t scratch my hardwood floors. I haven’t had any issues yet, and the table looks great in the guest bedroom.

Put it together in less than 15 minutes.

You can see for yourself in the photo the aesthetics of the table. What you need to know in this review is that the table is very well built. The top is formica-like, but has an appealing finish and texture. More importantly, it’s impermeable and tough. It’s was also easy to assemble.

I use it for a printer stand and it’s perfect.

  • Sturdy, easy to put together, but get some coasters
  • This is a nice end table
  • I and my cat both love this table

They are a little less gray and with taupe undertones than true grey.

Pretty sturdy, well made and was very easy to build.

Instructions clearly written. Putting together is pretty easy. Nice for what i wanted it for. The color of the top seems a little darker than i thought from picture. But i like it just the same.

Really nice especially for how inexpensive it was. It is a very study and quality piece of furniture. I bought it originally just for the legs and was going to use a different top that i made, but it’s a little larger than i expected ( i should have read the measurements better) and i’m just going to have to leave it as is. Fits well and shareable between my two chairs. Really nice especially for how inexpensive it was.

It’s sort of art deco in style. It’s rather cheap but will work well for my needs.

Simple, modern, easy to assemble. This was easy to assemble and appears to be well-made for the price. I was a little wary of the oak pattern of the table (afraid that it was tacky), but it’s simple and modern and fits great with our gray and purple decorating scheme. Hopefully the product continues to be available because we might buy another when we have more space.

Not sure if i’m a fan of this leaning leg style now that i see it in person, however, the assembly was exactly as indicated in the directions and everything fit perfectly. It’s a nice, cheap sidetable.

Great quality for the price. These end tables are just what i needed. Inexpensive and retro for my spare bedrooms. They were among the least expensive acceptable end tables on amazon, and the fact that they had the retro legs was a plus since it matches some other furniture that i have. The table tops feel nice and solid, even though they aren’t real solid wood. Assembly was easy: four screws, screwed in with the included allen wrench, for each leg. They also included two extra screws, just in case. I’m very happy with these tables for the price.

I bought a very expensive mid-century modern sofa and chair. I was concerned about buying end tables that were so cheap, but i do have to say that they look nice, and we’re very affordable. They look great with my set. They are a little bit on the small side, i know the dimensions when i ordered them, i believe in the future i will probably keep the legs, and buy my own wood and make a bigger top.

I bought this to use as a printer table in my office. It looks even sturdier and better than i had hoped. I put it together in just a few minutes. The hairpin legs feel very nice, with just a bit of texture. I wouldn’t use it to put drinks on, moisture would not be good for the surface, if you’re using as an end table you’ll want to use coasters. I am now planning to order the coordinating desk to use as a work table.

It’s particle board with a *very* faux-looking wood grain. However, the hairpin legs really aren’t bad especially considering that similar legs go for $60 to $80 online. I intended on replacing the top, so i’m fairly happy with my purchase. If i were planning to use as-is, however, this would be a bummer.

Perfect end tables between sofa and chair.

This a great end table, very study, the wire legs are very thick which was a great surprise cuz i’m using it to hold my mini fridge. Love how the table is airy, sleek too for being so study and love the colored legs.

Awesome table, awesome price. I’ve been wanting side tables for my guest room/office and came across these beauties in a buzzfeed article. I ordered them and got them very quickly. They were packaged very well and were super easy to put together. The legs are a nice heavy metal, but the top is just what i’m assuming particle board with laminate. It still looks very nice and i’m not too picky on what material is used for the price. (i took the picture with this room still in progress, so ignore the background).

And i am horrible at assembling furniture. Did not need extra tools, just the allen wrench provided. The top is a bit darker than i thought it would be, and the material doesn’t look as nice as real wood, but i still give it 5 stars because of the ease of assembly and it’s a decent product at this price point.
