Looks are truly deceiving.This is especially true in the case of the bronze, 3 Piece Palladium Bistro Set I recently purchased from Target (item# 10742127).
While unpacking the item I retrieved a chair back with the gold ornamental crest accent. The paint job on the gold crest was terrible. I saw an elephant on YouTube that could do a better job of painting. In fact there blind workers from the Lighthouse that I am sure could do a better job.
The two-page assembly manual was a nearly complete waste of time. Would it be too much trouble to add dimensions in the description of the parts-- excuse me, there were no descriptions—to help differentiate one item from another. One part labeled “E” is in reality two separate items that have to be put together. It almost didn’t matter to me at this point as I was no longer referencing the assembly instructions.
After finally assembling the table I noticed that it was more of a trapezoid shape than a square rectangle. I made several attempts to realign the frame with little success. This irregularity becomes very evident when you place the square glass top on the table frame. On a positive note, the glass top was securely packaged and arrived without incident.
If the same care that was exercised in protecting the glass top for shipping went into the manufacture of this table set, I would be writing a letter of praise.
P.S. I posted this product review on their website on 12/16/14 and it has yet to appear on the site.
The most recent review on this product was placed over a year ago.Clearly Target is filtering the bad reviews.
