Good Questions: Is A Table With A Veneer Top Worth It?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I'm looking into buying a new dining table, but I'm amazed that practically every high-end, "designer" wood table has a veneer top. Eames, Cherner, Noguchi, Nelson... all of them! Why? Is it worth investing in a table like this? Does anyone have one at home? Does the
veneer hold up to daily abuse?

Thanks for your help!
Holly
