I always comparison shop before buying online and usually find great deals by doing so. Nothing beats this though because I saved hundreds of dollars by getting these from Overstock. They're better quality than I predicted so I am beyond words thrilled.
My friend has the real designer chairs and I like them but would never fork over the dough for a piece of thin metal wire but these were a steal in comparison so I thought I'd try them. I ordered one set and am back for a second set because the quality is spot-on. I can't tell the difference between these and my friends', which cost more than 3x as much.
Ill echo all the great comments other reviewers have posted, with two additions - one good and one bad.
The Good: The one detail we were worried about (I'm a designer using these in my own home) was the pad. I thought it would be sort of chintzy, cheap vinyl and had already planned to replace them before I got the chairs. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that the pads are actually attached to the seat frame, larger than they appear in photos, tailored in shape to the design of the chair, and quite comfortable! They're keepers. (The metal work is gorgeous, and the chrome shines like jewelry around the dining table -one friend that knows furniture thought they were the 750 each versions!)
The Bad: The assembly is a bit of a ***. Although you only have to attach 4 bolts from the base into the chair seat, the access, length and threading of bolt and misalignment of the legs (until you get it all together) is much more difficult than you would expect. And sadly, one of the threaded holes in one seat wasn't manufactured correctly, so tho we spent over a hour trying to get this one last bolt attached, it wasn't happening. Overstock customer service is, as always, standing behind their products and sending a replacement seat, so I'm sure all will be fine shortly.
Overall, as Tony the Tiger would say, "they're great."
Great classics for the money. A bit tedious to put together, as bolt holes do not always line up. Best option is to construct one first, and then stack the second seat on the first seat upside down for a working surface and go from there. Do not over tighten bolts initially, and you should be fine. Great back support and the cushion is just the perfect amount of cush....great for dinners where you must sit for a bit. Looks amazing with my Mid Century Modern table.
Love everything about these chairs. Ordered initially 4 to try them out. Ended up ordering two more. Very sturdy and I was able to put them together on my own without a problem.
Design is spectacular! Beautiful overall!
I had hoped to use these chairs at my dining table but decided they are too small scale. However, we are so impressed with the quality and value that we now plan to use them as desk chairs. They are comfortable and stable and a nice modern touch to our place. I should mention that one of the chairs could not be assembled because the drilled holes for the screws are poorly positioned. Customer service is working on replacing the part and has been very responsive so far. Hopefully all will go well. My 5 stars assumes a good final result and I will update if needed.
I needed new dining room chairs that weren't my cats' favorite place to sleep and were easy to clean. Out with my old microsuede Parsons-style chairs and in with these beauties. These are perfect. They're sturdy and they look more expensive in person than you would expect. The black material looks better than I expected, but even better, they look easy to reupholster, so in a few years, I may do something different. I love that. I got two sets of 2, and they look great around my table (the small Parker dining table from West Elm in Walnut). My dining room is pretty small, and I like that these look really light, but they aren't flimsy. It did take two people to assemble them, even though it wasn't complicated; it was just helpful to have one person hold the last leg in place while the other person did the screw. Make sure not to tighten the other three screws down until you get that fourth leg in. They came with lots of spare black caps for the feet, which was helpful since a few were broken. Everything else was in great condition. I would recommend these chairs to anyone looking for a mid-century look on a budget.
Chairs are lovely--no regrets. Ordered 2 sets of 2 and unfortunately 2 were damaged in transit and one had a manufacturing flaw mentioned in other reviews (one of the four legs was about 1/2 in shorter than others). Called Overstock and the customer service staff was professional and quick to send replacement parts/replacement chairs. I was concerned about potential problems with the second batch, but all arrived intact and in good condition. Assembly was fairly simple, even by myself. I placed the over-turned seat on an ottoman to hold it in place so I could attach the legs.
Incredibly sturdy, look great! They were a bit of a challenge to put together, definitely easier with two people (one to bend the legs in order to align them with the seat, and one to screw the bolts in). Took about half an hour with two of us to put 4 chairs together. They shipped them with a ton of extra pieces for the ends of the chair legs so I'm not too concerned about those occasionally falling off :)
