Argos Nest of Tables - Beech Effect
Advantages: Lightweight and last years
Disadvantages: Wobbly, not very sturdy
I bought these nest of tables about 4 years ago from Argos, when I first moved into my home. I had some vouchers, and I just wanted something simple to put a lamp on in the corner of my front room. I chose this nest of tables for around £40, but they are currently selling on Argos's website for £29.99. I think this is a better price, as I think they are cheap quality for £40. I have a set of three tables, and they also had the same set in Homebase at the time. It looks like you only get 2 tables now from Argos looking at their website, and this is probably why the price has gone down.
This is a set of three tables, in beech effect. This wood is a light coloured wood, and to me, looks really fake and quite cheap. There is a large table, a smaller table which fits inside this one, and a smaller one again, which fits inside the middle table. You arrange these so they are are half under each table, so they look like they do in the picture above.
These tables have lasted well, as I have still got them in my front room, although I can't wait to redecorate and get rid of them! They look really cheap, even though they are obviously decent quality, despite not looking it. They look as good as the day I bought them, although they have minor chips in the wood in places, but that's our fault for knocking them.
The legs are slightly wobbly when you are moving them, they are not completely sturdy, and they are so lightweight, I have no problem lifting them to move them out of the way to clean underneath them. I just polish them with multi surface spray, and this keeps them looking clean.
I don't think they would hold much weight, as they are so light themselves, and with the legs being wobbly, I haven't put anything heavier than a lamp on them. These were really easy to put together, they didn't take my partner long at all to put them up.
There are many uses for these tables, not just as decoration for a room. We quite often use a small table to put by the side of the sofa with drinks or food on. These are adequate if you want just a simple set of tables, but I personally would pay more for a decent looking wood, as these look cheap, they will not hold much weight due to having wobbly legs, but they have lasted well over the four years I have had them so far, so I have got my moneys worth out of them!
Summary: Nice set of tables, but the wood looks to fake for me
