Sam mentioned that we furnished our breakfast nook with the White Molded Plastic chairs. We asked you for advice on which dining table we should get for it, the Axis Dining Table from Room and Board for $659 or the Becky Dining Table from Scandinavian Designs for $249. We chose the Axis Dining Table from Room and Board. We figured that we needed the natural element to counterbalance the plastic chairs and chrome legs.
On Sunday night, we purchased the Axis Dining Table from Room and Board with the Solid Walnut table top. The process was pretty simple at the Room and Board in San Francisco. We usually love walking in there to look at all the cool contemporary modern furniture and leaving empty handed. But not that day. My sister had given us some gift credit for RnB and we were on a mission to spend it. We walked straight through and met the nicest Design Associate, Trevor M. He walked us through the purchase, making sure we knew how to care for the table. And we left with an appointment to pick up the table next weekend from the warehouse in Brisbane.
The next day, we picked up our new dining table. Wait, what? I thought you had to pick it up on the following weekend. You are right! I did some sleuthing and found the Axis table being sold on Craigslist for $310. I contacted the seller and boom we were checking it out that night. The Axis table was like new but had a Cherry Butcherblock top. That definitely wasn’t the top we were eyeing, but the seller lowered the price to $270! We are saving ourselves $450 (the walnut top with tax was ~$720 after tax) just by getting this table from CL. We also know that the table would still match the chairs, so we went for it! I love getting a deal, especially when it is something that fits so well!
Tell us what you think!
