Product review for American Signature's Vineyard Manor Dining room 7 piece set

American Signature Vineyard Manor Dining room set




This product is currently offered in American Signature and Value City furniture stores.


Product Details of the set: 

All-wood formal dining room.
Intricately carved legs and a rich cherry finish.
Side chairs feature distinct cut-out backs with upholstered seats.
5-Piece set includes table base, table top, two 12" leaves and four side chairs.
Arm chair (sold separately).
An American Signature exclusive.
SKU: 1304062



Pros: 
This furniture is heavy duty, large and has nice carved detailing on the seats and the table.
Easy to assemble. Even though this set seems daunting, the hardest part of assembly is just getting the large boxes into your home to assemble.

One man job-
Only requires one person to put the large table and chairs together.

Padded upholstered seats-
The padding on the dining room chairs will go with a multitude of design schemes and colors.

Open stock-
You have the ability to purchase matching pieces from the collection.
If you love this set, you can easily purchase not only the hutch, but a bar stool, desk and bedroom set in the Vineyard Collection which is convenient.

Easy financing-
I merely registered online and was approved for credit instantly.

Price-
  This set is very expensive looking and a seven piece set for under $1500.00 was a good buy when you consider the quality of the materials and workmanship.

Chairs can accommodate large and heavy people-
Even the Captains chairs (which have arms on the sides) will easily accomodate people that are much larger than average. If you have large men that are 300 lbs. or more they will be comfortable and the chairs are extremely strong and well made.

Accommodates many guests-
Seven people can sit easily at this dining room table with both leaves inserted. However, I do believe two more could be fit in making this table able to accommodate 9 guests in a pinch.

Two leaves-
This makes adjusting the size of the table to suit your needs extremely convenient. Much better than some dining room tables that only have one leaf. This set offers even better flexibility.

American Signature lifetime warranty

Chair pads can be re-upholstered-
If you wanted to change the look of the padded seats they can easily be removed and re-upholstered to suit your tastes.


Cons:
Heavy-

It will take two people to unload if you live outside the delivery area of a Value City/American Signature store and must pick the pieces up yourself. Bring a friend and make sure you have a truck.

Large-
Please consider the scale of the dining room you are placing this furniture in, it is large scale and needs plenty of room to be a functional set.

No online ordering-
If you love to shop online, American Signature nor Value City are not set up to let customers order online. This means if you live outside the delivery area you will have to travel to the store and find a way to transport your order once it comes in. This was inconvenient.

Cherry finish?-
Varies- We had some existing Oak hutches that we didn't want to part with and to make them match, we had to stain our hutches by refinishing with a gel stain. The gel stain we used to match the Vineyard Manor Collection was Mahogany. Cherry was too light. So take that into consideration when purchasing, this set is quite dark, however it is rich and warm.

No padding on chair backs-
It would have been nice to have had a padded upholstered back on these fine heavy chairs.

The Bottom line:
Its a winner!
The Vineyard Manor Collection is large scale, beautiful, with lots of fine quality carved detailing and a bold style. This stet is  made to last a lifetime and I have no doubt it will. American Signature offers a lifetime warranty on their furniture pieces so you can order with confidence. It is the opinion of this purchaser that this set exceeded expectations in design, style, price and durability. It is well worth the money, and a good value. It is a recommended purchase for those seeking furniture that they want to last through out the years. Two thumbs up!
