We did some research reading reviews before furniture shopping. Jerome's has some pretty bad reviews out there and we were not going to even look at their showroom. however, we bought our sectional sofa next door at Metro Furniture and so went to Jerome's since we were in the parking lot. We purchased, what we thought to be, a nice marble-top table set, along with the matching buffet. We also picked up a futon. Delivery was timely and we loved the furniture.......until we went to actually use the table. Somehow, after only two dinners on the table, the ""marble-top"" surface got marred in 3 places. One looks just like a water stain mark from a glass with condensation on it. Nothing will take it out. We know nothing hot was put down on the table to cause a burn. Getting through to Jerome's service department, and actually speak to someone other than the receptionist took some time and diligence. Finally I was asked to submit photos of the table top damage. Then I was informed this damage is not a manufacture defect and, therefore, no help from Jerome's. A contractor friend informed us that the marble is extremely sensitive to acid, so anything (as simple as a glass of juice) can stain or marr or ""etch"" the marble. DON'T go near Jerome's marble-top tables if you want a table you can actually use to have a meal on!!!! We are livid that the salesman or the delivery/set-up crew did not provide information on how easily this marble-top table surface can get damaged. If they had told us how ridiculously sensitive the marble-top table is, we would at least have had a chance of protecting it's surface.
Now I wish I had listened to my gut and, more importantly, all the negative reviews and NOT gone into Jeromes! Sure the stuff may look good, but beware, because the marble-top table we purchased is a piece of crap and Jerome's does not stand behind their products. Pay attention to those reviews and realize most people writing good reviews are writing them immediately upon receiving their furniture. I wonder if their furniture held up better than ours? Shame on you Jerome's!!!!!
