My wife and I were looking for a nice high top table for our small apartment and this truly fit the bill. Much assembly was required though and one of the chair pieces was missing the pre-drilled holes, so I had to break out a drill to finish the assembly. We have received many compliments on the table from our guests. Great furniture at a great price.
This table was quite easy to put together and the chairs also. The set up was quick as I had it all together in two hours (I had a puppy helping). The labeling could have been better on the legs of the chairs, but overall directions were well written.
I needed the higher chairs because of an injury that made it hard to get up and down. This was a great price, I did wish it came in lighter finishes but it looks beautiful. We did have problems with the seats on the chairs, when we screwed them on and turned the chairs over a lot of the screws fell right out but we put some glue in the holes and screwed them back in and no problems. I have a big family as in big people and the set has held up through many gatherings solid and sturdy.
Great product for the price. Nice quality and easy to put together with the instructions. I recommend this product to anyone who have a small kitchen. I love the bar chairs it's great for entertaining.

This is a beautiful table took me forever to put it together but once I got it all together it was worth it!!!! Nice table it sits in my dinning room where I DO NOT allow my children. They are the reason I had to purchase this one.
I purchased this set a little over a week ago and so far it has been good. Although it was a bit tough to put together. It was quite painful on my hands. (I put it together on my own.) but eventually after about 2 hours or so I got it put together. It has been great so far. The only issue I see is that it has a very chemical-y smell to it.
I initially saw the Hayden 5-Pc. Dining Set on display in my local Kmart store. I liked the overall look, quality and height of the table (counter height)... The comfort of the chairs was also a pleasant surprise, but I wanted to shop around before making my final decision. After deciding this was the set I wanted, I checked online to see if it was in-stock at my local Kmart... it was, so I decided to purchase online for store pick-up. A short time later, I received an email confirmation that it was ready and I was able to pick-up from the store fairly easily by showing my receipt and I.D. I was a little nervous about the box fitting in my vehicle, but it fit in the back of my SUV without any issue. The box states "easy to assemble"... and it is... as long as you have someone who is adept at assembly and power tools vs hand tools are used. It took two people about 40 min. to put mine together. I'm very pleased with my purchase and have already had compliments on the set!
The set is a great value and very comfortable. It is solid wood and well made. The seats are covered with fabric that resembles suede but it is easily cleaned. Nice starter set or good for people who want to downsize.
I bought this high top table and chairs at KMart about a month ago. I absolutely love it. It was easy to put together, great value for my money, and it looks very elegant in my new home. It's comfortable too.

I purchased the essential home hayden 5-piece upholstered dining set about three weeks ago. I love the height of the table its not the old standard boring height. It matches the marble in my counter tops really well.

A nice dining or kitchen set to start your furniture collection. It's sturdy and strong, easy to assemble, and a very nice asset to any kitchen or dining room.
My wife and I purchased this set to replace an olden beaten set that we had. My expectations were low but I was pleasantly surprised with this set. It was easy to assemble and we are happy with the appearance and function of the furniture. Heads up: the set comes in one box so you will need a vehicle large enough to load it into and somebody to help you carry into you home .
First of all, for the price, it is a good value. It looks nice. OK, the problems. We have one chair without a pre-drilled hole. We have another chair where the wood was completely separated at the top; no way to fix it. We have one chair with a big chip on the top. We have emailed customer service but of course we purchased this on the weekend and no one is there until Monday. We will see what kind of service we receive from them. If my husband had not already spend two hours on this project, we would have taken it back. The table was assembled and one chair before we began running into issues. Also, make sure the person putting this together knows what they are doing. Someone without experience or the patience would become very discouraged.
I bought this item online & picked it up in the store (beware, it's about 130 lbs.) for my first apartment and it is exactly what I expected. Just as it is in the picture, it looks classy, the quality is good, and even though the price is cheap (I used coupons so I bought it for $140) it doesn't look/feel cheap at all. My favorite piece is the table - it's so sturdy and it's heavier than it looks, which is good! Now for the downsides: putting together the chairs was a bit of a hassle and very time consuming. I definitely needed help (thank God for my dad!) but after we were done with the first one, it was easier to put together the other 3 chairs. Another downside is that it looks a shade lighter than it looks in the pictures. I was looking forward to a deeper brown/chocolate color but it definitely has more of a reddish-brown tint to it. Also, be careful not to bump the pieces into any hard objects (like the wall, for example) because it WILL leave a brown mark on your wall and on top of that, it will leave a dent on the piece. Also, the cushions aren't the softest but I don't really mind that. Overall, a great starter piece of furniture for my apartment and I can't wait to use it!
