The Flip Console Table is the piece I've needed for some time now. I am a minimalist and do not need or want a dining room table taking up loft space when it's only used a few times a day. Over the course of several months, I'd looked at many other convertible tables and none of them suited my tastes. The Flip immediately did.
The black version looks as if it's polished to the sheen of a grand piano. The legs are sturdy and easy to use. And several visitors have already commented that the table looks "sexy" and "stylish." It is both.
I only have two criticism. The first is that one can see the leg sliding mechanisms under the table. But given its minimalist design, there is no way to avoid that. Second, the paper instructions may be difficult to follow if one is not mechanically inclined. Expand has a very helpful video that walks one through the process, but I was unable to find it on the site. Customer service did send me the link, however, it would be great if the installation video was readily available on the Flip Console web page, and/or mentioned in the printed documentation.
Those two points aside, I am extremely pleased. the shipping was ultra fast. I ordered it on a Friday and it had arrived from Canada by the following Wednesday. On several occasions, customer service contacted me after closing hours to answer questions. Overall, this has been one of the best online furniture shopping experiences I've had. I would definitely buy from Expand again!
