This sensible little modern table from Palecek really has it all. Form and function combine to make this a lovely accent piece for your room: one that you don't have to be too precious with. The faux burl wood looks terribly convincing. Even up close it's hard to tell that it's not real burled wood. Not only do you not have to be as careful about using coasters and what-not due to the fact that it's actually laminate, but the burled wood pattern hides any imperfections, scratches, and dings pretty well. There are one or 2 larger scratches that are somewhat easy to see once you get up close to the table if you are looking for them, but overall it's a great piece that can withstand some daily use.
There are a few dents and knicks in the table top. However, the faux burlwood pattern really hides any flaws, which I think is actually a big bonus of this table. I tried really hard to have the pictures show the flaws but it is hard to get them to show well in the photos due to the pattern.
