Mango Dining Furniture

While beancountingqueen (aka, Leigh) and I are still working toward the cottage, we need a kitchen table more suited to the 11' x 9' area in the center of my house between the kitchen and the living room. Since this is a rowhouse and the main floor is all continuous space, we envision this spot being the dining room of the house. The current table in the house is circular, so it doesn't quite fit the space.

While we don't really have much money now, we are smitten with a table from Arhaus.



It's a 65" x 36" mango wood table, which is supposedly eco-friendly, would make a nice dichotomy with my (yet to be installed) Brazilian cherry floors, and is most importantly on sale. :) Since I don't know much about mango wood durability, I'm a bit concerned, but the look and price are decent and it would help define the space, hopefully helping in selling the house. Am I just telling myself these latter sentiments to make myself feel better about this potential purchase?

...

The table would look pretty nice with the track brass wall strips from cb2 that beancountingqueen ordered me for V-day...

It looks gorgeous in the photo, great graining to the wood and solid.

Michael,

C&B has some nice ones, though we needed something thinner and liked that this one comes w/ leaves for making an uber long table if needed.

We looked at the Ikea chairs that were leather but didn't like them, preferring to get the Ikea Gilbert chairs in white.
