How can this dining set be so inexpensive? We don’t understand how they have done it. The Santa Monica is a solid rustic cherry dining set handcrafted in Ohio by the Amish. It is a narrower table and comes with two self storing leaves which is great for smaller spaces. It has a simple 45-degree bevel for interest, an elegantly tapered leg, and the rustic cherry shows the more natural side of cherry with interesting streaks, knots and pits. The chairs are a smaller profile thumb-back style with an ergonomic lumbar support and scooped seat. We stock this set in a cherry stain, but it can be ordered in many different colors.
