These chairs are fabulous. I recently purchased 8 of these chairs for my bed and breakfast, Bischwind in the Poconos Pa. The weight and construction of these chairs is very impressive. Every guest has commented on their looks....stream line elegance. You will be very pleased with your purchase if considering these chairs.
Great looking chairs, the vinyl looks and feels like leather, but the color looks of the viny looks more black than dark chocolate. Very sturdy and comforable, but if you are on the short side, these chairs are just a little bit taller than most other chairs. Not easy to asemble, better to get a pro to put them together unless you have worked with furniture before. To hire someone adds $150 to cost of six chairs. Good buy if you are capable of putting chairs together your self. These chairs match the Metro Table perfectly!
the only note I have for these chairs, The seat is very cushy and so it raises the seating height up. So if you have a table with an apron around it, be mindful of that. I loved the chairs so much that I bought risers for my table legs to raise it up. easy to put together. I agree with the other reviews that it is such a dark brown it kind of looks black, and the back has the leather on it, which I like. super happy with this product and would recommend.
The chairs arrived on the date delivery was promised. The quality is good for the price. The vinyl padding on the seats and back do not look too cheap. The cushion on the set however is very thick. Some might see it as a good thing, but it is not working out for my table at the moment. My table seats 18-inch high chairs with not too thick cushion comfortably. This chair advertises the seat height as 18 inches, but with cushion, the seat height is easily 20 inches (perhaps 20.5 inches). I'm hoping the cushion will flatten out a bit as I use them. Note to company or seller: Please indicate seat height with cushion in the product description.
I've bought these chairs about 3 years ago now and they are still holding strong. Only one out of the 3 chairs I purchased is starting to crack a bit on the vinyl. The vinyl is very leather-like in texture and feel, rather than the weird shiny look some vinyl items have. I've purchased these when my son was 6 months old and starting to eat solids in prep for a young child in the house and wanted something that would be easily clean-able but still looked nice. These chairs were the perfect choice. One minor thing is that every so often, you may have to adjust the chair legs to tighten them and balance them as they loosen from the daily use.

I am writing this review four years after the purchase. These chairs are actually good, heavy, and sturdy. I have a very large relative (over 400lbs) who sat on these chairs with no problem and not a creak was heard. With that being said, the reason I give these chairs 3 stars is because of the vinyl pleather quality. After about a year, they began to crack at the corners in the front of the chair. If you're good at upholstery or repairing vinyl, you may not mind. It wasn't worth it for me. I just pitched them last month. RIP June 20, 2011 - October 31, 2015.
In purchasing 2 Aiden chairs, I was trying to coordinate with 4 existing cherry (all wood) chairs and dining table. The Aiden chairs are beautiful and look fantastic with the existing set. Moreover, they were simple for my daughter-in-law to assemble.
Very nice chairs and look similar to the photo. They aren't too reddish as I thought they would be which is fine since I was matching them to a more brown dining room table. The vinyl is dark brown and don't seem black to me like other reviews have noted. Inspect each chair carefully, I have a couple that have some scuffs on the corners and some blemishes. Nothing for me worth returning however. Quick processing and arrived at my front door in less than a week!
I purchased six of these chairs to match an antique cherry dining table. I wanted a more contemporary look but feared they'd look cheap. Well -- assembly was easy and they are solid, heavy, handsome chairs. And match the table perfectly! Very pleased.

We did a lot of searching before deciding on these chairs for our dining room. They arrived on time, in good condition. They turned out to be a perfect match to our antique DR table, handsome, solid and elegant. One seat was out of alignment and could not be attached to the back. I called customer service and they sent out a replacement promptly. Alas, when it arrived, it aligned, but the chair rocked severely. Same thing with another chair. I figure that asking for more replacements would not really solve the problem, so I will be relying on stacking sliders and gliders. Btw, the feet of the chairs are virtually unfinished. They barely move on our ceramic tile floor; I can imagine they would be a real problem on a rug or wood floor. Bottom line -- these are great, but with reservations. Be prepared to purchase products to help the chairs move/slide.

These arrived quickly and were easy to put together. The chairs are heavy and solid, exactly what I wanted. They match my warm oak, mission-style dining room table perfectly. Some of the chairs (I ordered six) had manufacturing defects; Overstock replaced them without a hitch. So I now I have eight chairs. I gave only four stars because of the defects - scratched wood and one had a problem with the place where the fabric meets the wood. Other than those, great chairs - I've had them over a year and they look same as new.

Really like these chairs. Solid, easy to assemble, comfortable, sturdy, nice color. EXCEPT... they have been off gassing outside on our porch for three days now and still smell. Don't know when or if they will ever stop. Wondering if it is the material itself that smells. They are a bit tall, so shorter people might have a hard time putting their feet flat on the floor. The cushion may flatten a bit over time I'm expecting, so they won't be quite so high.

After reading reviews that the "faux leather" on these chairs was more black than brown (it's a nice color contrast), we bought four. We have an open-space living/diing area and wanted the dining chairs to match the black leather sofa in our living room. They are clean and elegant looking - and extremely comfortable to boot. According to my husband, they were easy to assemble (took him a couple hours for all four). I bought felt pads to attach to bottoms so they effortlessly slide across our bamboo rug. We couldn't be happier and are considering buying two more!
