Growing up my mom made it a point that we would eat dinner together every night as a family. It was the perfect opportunity to share how our day had went and to simply enjoy each others company. When Dustin and I purchased our first home we settled on a small bungalow and when I say small I truly mean it. After Alleigh was born we basically outgrew it, but because of the real estate market are still living here after four children. A few months ago we decided that our youngest was old enough to move upstairs with her big sisters who share the entire upstairs of our home. This meant we finally had an open room on the first floor adjacent to our kitchen. The plan is to take out the wall between these two rooms, but since it is a load bearing wall the process will take a little while. In the mean time I wanted to start using the room as a dining room. I dug our old kitchen table and chair set out of the basement that Dustin and I used while renting our apartment when we first moved in together. It was super small and as a family of six just not functional which began my search to find a high quality dining set. I wanted something built to stand the test of time with four crazy kiddos and that also wouldn’t break the bank.
During this search I came across Oak Furnitureland. While visiting their website a few things immediately caught my eye. Always 100% solid hardwood. Free shipping. And fully assembled. As I perused the website I couldn’t get over the prices which were significantly lower than any furniture store I had ever visited. I was curious just how these prices were possible and discovered that at Oak Furnitureland they have cut out the expensive middleman to keep their costs at a minimum. Instead of buying from expensive wholesalers who take a cut, Oak Furnitureland designs all of their products and manufactures them via exclusive contracts with overseas suppliers. This allows them to sell large volumes of high-quality oak and mango furniture at massively reduced prices, direct to the public and commercial hospitality customers.
Oak Furnitureland is continually growing and adding new distribution centers. They currently deliver to Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington D.C., and West Virginia. Smaller orders of 1-2 pieces under 55 pounds are shipped FREE via UPS. Larger orders that are heavy, bulky, or multiple boxes are delivered FREE via a two man delivery team.
The selection at Oak Furnitureland is absolutely incredible with more than 20 collections of hardwood furniture with items suitable for every room in the house. I absolutely love how easy their website is to navigate. There are numerous ways to shop for the perfect piece of furniture for your home – by room, by product, or by collection. I knew we were in the market for a dining room table with six chairs and so I began my search by product and selected dining sets.
From there I was able to choose between 3 foot, 4 foot, 5 foot, 6 foot, round, or extending dining sets. After measuring our space I knew a 5 foot table would be ideal. As I scrolled through the different sets I couldn’t get over the beauty of every single set as well as all of the different chair covering options – solid wood, leather, and fabric. With four little ones ranging in age from two to eight years old I decided that solid wood chairs would be the absolute best option for our families needs since they would be easy to keep clean. When I saw the Baku Light Natural Solid Mango Dining Set I knew it was the perfect set for our home.
After a few weeks of placing our order a two man delivery team received the order and called to schedule a delivery date. Within 24 hours of the agreed upon delivery date we were called with a three hour delivery window and on that day I was called when the delivery team was roughly thirty minutes away. When they arrived at our house I simply had to sign for the items and they were carried to the room of my choosing. It is important to note that the delivery team does not unpack or remove the packaging, but that was fine by me because I was excited to open the boxes myself!
I waited until Dustin got home from work so that we could open them together, but it is important to open the boxes soon after delivery. If there are any problems with the order you will need to contact Oak Furnitureland within 48 hours of delivery. I don’t foresee that being an issue because we were absolutely thrilled with our order.
We began by unpacking the dining chairs which came two in a box for a total of three boxes. Everything was packaged carefully with lots of foam to avoid any rubbing between the pieces which could potentially cause damage.
Next we opened the box containing the dining table. While most Oak Furnitureland products come fully assembled there are some items which will need very minimal assembly. For example our dining table needed to have the legs attached, but everything was included that we would need with very detailed instructions. Beds and amoires also require minimal assembly and pieces that have handles or knobs arrive with them facing inward for protection while unboxing.
Once the set was assembled and in place I was completely in love. The Baku style fit seamlessly with my primitive home decor.
All of the subtle details of this set set is apart from other simpler dining sets I had viewed in the past. The Baku design includes chamfered edges, robust corner studs, wooden dowel detailing, and elegant grooves that are absolutely stunning.
As with every piece of furniture Oak Furnitureland has available the Baku Light Natural Solid Mango Dining Set was brought to life by highly skilled woodworkers. This particular set of table and chairs is made from premium-grade solid mango hardwood and then treated with wax to create a protective and attractive finish. Since receiving our gorgeous dining set the Harper’s have enjoyed eating dinner together as a family every single night instead of being scattered through the living room with the kids eating at a small table in the kitchen. I love being able to spend that quality time together as a family and enjoying a meal on this gorgeous table makes it that much sweeter.
Oak Furnitureland offers many more pieces in the Baku Light Natural Solid Mango collection for the dining room, living room, bedroom, office, and more. I would love to add more of these pieces to our home and am especially eyeing this gorgeous hutch.
