Hello AT,

I know you're a design site and not a consumer site -but have you ever asked about how often folks receive damaged furniture when it is shipped via UPS or other shippers? I'm asking because, while I had no problems with electronics, I'm batting 3 for 3 on coffee tables - and from 3 different manufacturers! The packaging on the Calligaris Tray Table was particularly poor and certainly no match for commercial shipping. Have other people had bad experiences with furniture shipping?

Thanks, Anna
