Crate and Barrel- quality of kitchen table/chairs?

I'd love some feedback on this. I did a search but wasn't able to find much about the quality of C&B, although i did read an article that said to choose C&B over Pottery Barn.

Please let me know if you've been satisfied or not with the quality and/or customer service.

THanks!

My personal opinion is that you can find manufacturers of furniture made in the US for close to the same prices. Everything C&B, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware make is made in Asia. Even some Stickley stuff is being made in Vietnam. Check out Chatham Furniture Inc. All solid Cherry made in Massachussetts. It might not be your style, but you can get the idea of some really good craftsmanship. I bought an end table for $649 and it's hand made solid cherry. I would pay $100 less for one that's not solid hardwood, made in Asia. The difference to me is that when I die, that tables going to still be around and someone's going to want it.

We have a CB dining table/sideboard/chairs from a few years ago and it was made in canada by baronet. It was one of their more pricier sets.

We bought the Allegro extension table and Dylan side chairs. The table was easy to assemble, and we're happy with the look and quality. Unfortunately, it was made in China.

There is no quality to anyone's furniture that has to be assembled, regardless of the maker. Correctly made furniture has joinery, not bolts and screws.

I agree, they are a bit over priced for that they are selling. I am trying to decide on a dining set and saw a few at this store that look similiar to what C&B are offering...for alot less too.

Thanks! We actually ended up choosing a Saloom table, which I've read good things about--on this forum mostly.
