We recommend this item for interior use only and would advise to avoid direct sunlight which may cause the solid wood to develop cracks.

Fantastic Table
, Herefordshire | 24 Jan 2017
I first saw one of these years ago whilst out and about and had wanted one for myself ever since... it took me almost 10 years to finally find and buy one for myself... and I'm delighted with it. I absolutely love this little side table, it's eccentric and quirky and just that little bit different. It has pride of place in our living room and regularly gets commented on by guests. Great value for money and excellent customer service.

Painted library
| 22 Jan 2017
I absolutely love both my painted library table and my Surin twist table. Both products are of a very high standard and blend beautifully in my home. Their height is perfect and I just love the quirkiness of the Library table, I have been wanting one for ages and even though it wasn't in the sale, and the plain one was, I still had to have the painted one! Just gorgeous! Love this company!

We loved this table from the off. I thought about getting the plain one but my Mrs. said, if you are going to do something , don't apologise for it, so go the full hog, so we decided to get the painted version. I am so glad we did. This table is pure quality. Its heavy and so well made. The paint job is colourful, but not garish and looks amazing in our living room. We love it!

I am very pleased with my purchase. This arrived on the day stated. The coffee table is very solid and well made and adds something to my lounge. Very realistic looking with the 'painted' books. I would recommend this item as it is different - the only thing is it is too nice to be putting cups on so I have to use something to avoid any marks. A good buy at a reasonable price because it is so well made.

Fun Table
, Pembrokeshire | 12 Mar 2015
This is a fun and good size (surface and height) little side table. I has a hand made flavour to it that I so like. I was a little disappointed with the dullness of the colours - I had expected slightly more vivid ones from the catalogue - and the spot of paint on the surface 'book'. On the whole, though, I am very pleased with my purchase and would certainly consider ordering more from Myakka. I did wait in all day for the delivery (after a telephone call from Myakka to agree the date) only for it to be delivered the next morning - courier's fault and I got an apology.

A note from the team

Many thanks for your review. It is great to hear that you are happy with your Library Table. Each piece of Surin furniture is hand carved and finished so there is always some variation between each piece. We are sorry you had to wait in all day for delivery - we can leave notes on your order for it to be left somewhere secure and we are working with them to introduce a more timed service.

I am really pleased with this table. It came really quickly - within about a week of ordering - and is just lovely. So unusual and it looks great in the corner of our living room. It is pretty heavy and maybe slightly larger than I was expecting, but actually I think that's a good thing. It looks pretty realistic too. I am definitely tempted to get another one for another room in the house!

Wonderful little side tables!
, south yorkshire | 20 Nov 2014
I purchased a couple side tables almost identical to this one over 15 years ago. Sadly one of them had been damaged due to one of my beautiful dogs chewing the corner, hence looking more than "Shabby Chic". I have looked all over to replace this table as they suit the house decor so much. So much to my surprise coming across them again I had to make a purchase. Delivery was speedy but was very disappointed when opening as I found the item damaged. A short phone call, an apology and a new delivery and collection of the article damaged within the week was brilliant news. Now the little table stands proudly in the lounge...ideal for the wine glass when relaxing in the evening!

I'm absolutely delighted with my new table. It looks fabulous and, being an avid reader, it blends in amazingly well. The quality is first class but it's the slight imperfections that make it special and show that it's a one off. I live on a narrowboat, so space is precious: but I can honestly say that it's not been wasted on this beautiful table.

A pile of old books
, Surrey | 23 Jul 2014
This piece of furniture is brilliant! We recently moved house, and I now have at last a whole room devoted to books. It did seem mildly ironic, after spending months sorting and clearing piles of books from the study floor, to deliberately opt for another pile of books. However, the table fits in perfectly, making a cosy trio with armchair and standard lamp in a corner of the room - can't wait to curl up with a good book and a good whisky in the winter months!

Library table

We were delighted with this. We were worried that it might be a bit unsuitable with small children running around, and might be easy to knock over. It is actually really solid, and even caught out one visitor, who thought at first site it was a pile of huge books! My only worry is that the waxwd surface may prove a little vulnerable, but I am polishing it and using coasters.

This is a totally unique design although I worried about the quality as this cannot be tested when buying online. Suffice it to say I am now hooked on Myakka and want my house furnished throughout. However back in the real world we will certainly be buying more in the near future. Having spoken to the team on a couple of occasions I can vouch completely for their thoroughly professional and friendly service. Thank you Myakka!!!

Thank you for your review. We're very sorry your Library Table has a crack running through it, this can occasionally happen due to the hand made nature of the product. We have made a note on your order and if the problem gets worse please let us know and we will arrange an exchange for you.

Painted Library Table
, Lincolnshire | 09 Mar 2014
We have had this for some time now and use it next to one of our armchairs (His) as an occasional table. To ensure that the top was not damaged by drinks etc. we have a piece of glass, cut to just oversize and fitted 4 small rubber feet, as a protective top. We like the table and it has proved quite a talking piece with visitors.

Solid and beautiful
| 03 Dec 2013
We bought this for our hallway and looks great! As expected the wood varies from the picture but the grain is beautiful. I note some people not too happy with the drawers not running smoothly. It is a solid piece of furnture, a bit on the rustic side, and that includes the drawers. If you want soft touch smooth running drawers on runners go to Ikea!

Fantastic service
| 24 Oct 2013
The service was fantastic, delivery was when arranged, very fast and efficient and flexible which was so convenient for me as I work full-time. I was so pleased with the product, which is beautiful and unusual, and will make a fantastic present. I will definitely be ordering more, and have told my colleagues/friends about you.

A Very unlucky purchase
| 25 Jul 2013
I refer to the above. Having read the reviews, I can't believe other customers were referring to the same product I had recently purchased. Whilst I understand the product was handmade etc, the table I received was tantamount to poor quality and unfinished 'slap dash' paintwork. Although I had to send photographs of the table. The service delivery was excellent, Amelia resolved the issue by replacing the painted table with an alternative - the more natural looking product, which she had examined before sending it out. The' natural' Surin Library table its slightly more expensive, (and hopefully doesn't contain as many flaws as its counterpart). I would rather pay the extra, than have a poorly unfinished unwanted piece of furniture. I am expecting the replacement to arrive on Tuesday. (I would recommend this product to a friend firstly because given the other glowing reviews, I must have been unlucky with my purchase and lastly the customer service was second to none).

disappointed
| 07 Jun 2013
received my first table and thought it was lovely until i discovered that it was damaged. Arranged for a replacement but was very disappointed with it as it was a very poor standard. Have returned this and awaiting a refund. I have to say though that the customer service was excellent, they dealt with my complaint promptly and efficiently. Well done to them.

We love it.
, Cornwall | 28 May 2013
We are so delighted with the Surin painted library table which looks great in our lounge and accommodates a wine bottle and glasses perfectly. The service and communication about our order was really good and the table was packaged well along with two other types of table that we ordered at the same time. My only gripe was that the full amount was taken at the time of our order. I think a deposit would have sufficed as we had to wait 2 months for the tables to arrive. We would still definitely use myakka again.

Not worth the money
| 24 May 2013
When this table arrived it was shabbily painted and had lots of marks and scratches on it, customer services were great and I received a replacement that had been checked by the warehouse manager, its much better quality but I still feel that this is a very expensive table that is really not worth the money. It is an unusual product and the customer service was great, but so expensive for what it is.

One small flaw
, Wilts. | 14 May 2013
Top corner of table is vunerable to handling/shipping damage between maker and customer. Ours looked like damage was caused before packing and shipment for final journey. Possibly stood upside down at sometime after final finishing. Accepted as is. Not worth the hassle of returning. Otherwise 5 stars all round. We intend to make a further purchase of a different item soon.

Love design but size is variable.
, Angus | 11 Feb 2013
Ordered 1 small and 1 tall. Tops meant to be same size. Small arrived December a month later than first promised. Loved it. A few marks on top but would probably get that soon anyway. Tall table arrived last week 6 weeks later than promised. Top is smaller than small table top by 3-4cm. However it is the small table that is bigger than the measurements given. Again top is a little knocked about. However they are perfect for my house since we love books and due to their weight are pretty much labrador proof.

A note from the team

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it really helps us improve. We are sorry that the tops of your tables are not the same size. As our Surin range is hand carved we have to rely on our carvers to carve to the correct size, sometimes there is a little variation. 3-4cm does seem significant so we have passed this information to our suppliers to try and stop this happening again. We are sorry for the delay in getting the tall table to you, there has been a delay is getting some of our Surin range because of the natural drying process and sourcing the correct size timber.
