The Transformer Table 2.0 was designed to be the only table you will ever need.
The idea is that if you go to a furniture store and buy a table, it’s likely that you will end up with one that doesn’t fit your needs or accommodate the number of guests you intend to have, but that this table fits both needs.
Although the name of “transformer” table 2.0 does sound a little like a multifunctional play table for kids like this one, you’ll know it’s entirely wrong as you continue reading.
In the following section, we will tell you if this table really worth buying.
What We Love
It’s made from all hardwood, with four choices to choose from: natural acacia, birch grey, American walnut and black oak. The wood is waterproof, heatproof and has a satin finish so as to prevent fingerprints and scratches that may occur over time.
It also comes “fully assembled” when delivered, so you can theoretically take it out of the box and use it straight away. It seats between 2-12 people. You just pull it out to expand it, thanks to a telescopic rail system with ball bearings in it that allows the table to expand from 18” to 118”.
Fully expanded, the table reaches 10′ in length and is capable of supporting 750 lbs. It also looks nice and is suitable to be used indoors and outdoors, as it is waterproof and sealed. There is free shipping in the U.S. And Canada, which is estimated to start in May 2018.
Review and Discussion – Should you buy this table?
Sounds great for your modern lifestyle, right? Well, there are a few things you need to know before you run off to go buy your Transformer Table 2.0.
First of all, it costs at least $985. It’s only got a warranty on it for 2 years, which is probably due to the mechanism in it more than the wood because the finish itself should really last longer than that. Also, shipping outside the U.S. is around $388. That said, Transformer table 2.0 is not new. In fact, I have found one highly similar extendable table on Amazon, which has almost no different from the design and mechanism. Alternatively, if you feel like the price is too much for you, you may want to check out this one much cheaper expandable table.
While it’s told to be “fully assembled” when delivered, there is definitely some assembly required to use it and to store it, even if you don’t have to do any assembly immediately after taking it out of the box. Once you expand the table, you have to put the panels on it and then clip them in place with clips that are on the underside of the table.
After your company leaves, or whatever you were doing with the table while it was expanded is done, you have to undo the clips, remove the panels and push it back into place. And then you have to find a place to store the panels. There is no place on or built into the table to store the panels. They do connect to each other, making it somewhat easier, but connected, they’re over 3′ tall and about 8” wide. Oh, and even if you’re thinking “I have space in my closet to store the panels and I can clip some stuff into place. No big deal”, the thing weighs 125 lbs. It’s made out of hardwood, which is heavy. And if you need to move it around somewhere, you’re most likely going to need help.
Is it worth it? That’s your call. It would probably be nice for something like a wedding or major catering event. But, as for myself, I don’t think I want to spend the money to have to assemble a big, heavy table that I rarely use and find a place to store all of its parts.
