Impress guests at the dinner table by seating them in these sturdy and attractive tufted fabric dining chairs. This set of two chairs features a thickly padded seat and back and a wooden frame. The chair's weathered legs have carved details....more
Color is not at all as shown. Website picture is a light dove grey. Actual chair fabric is a dark charcoal grey with a bit of a blue tone. Chairs are very cheaply made in China, with insufficient support in the center of the seat, obvious staples in the upholstery, and just not a quality job of upholstering. Too bad, because the design/style is great. Am debating about sending them back, versus keeping them and having them reupholstered when I get a chance and the cash.
I purchased these chairs as accents in my Master Bedroom. I wanted something romantic with a vintage flair, but they would also work well with anyone decorating with anything except ultra-modern, utilitarian, or industrial style. They are a good size to place in a corner with a small table, in an entry way, as accent chairs in your formal areas, and even would be a nice touch in a dressing room or bathroom. I would not purchase these chairs if they are going to get a lot of "sitting" time, but for those occasion when you are sitting for company, or sitting down to tie your shoes, they are ideal. I don't think I would put them in a dining room, but if you want a "café" feel, they would be perfect. The fabric is soft, without flaw, the buttons seem stable and the upholstery well sewn and in good condition. The finish on the legs (antique oak) is a very vintage looking finish. Do not run scared because it says oak, it is not your grandmother's oak cabinets. They feel more stable than I thought they might, they shipped promptly and arrived to me within just a couple of days of the order. Love them, I wish I could add a note in three years and tell you how they hold up. I would recommend these to any friend or client, even the high-end ones. Enjoy!

I have been looking for dinning room chairs for months, so when I saw these and the tall looking man sitting on the chairs I was so excited. Well I came home unpacked them and WOW, how small. Looked like something I would sit at a vanity. So, I had to send them back and I am back on my hunt for dinning room chairs. :(

The chairs are a great deal for the price! They are a little darker than the picture, but otherwise the description and picture is accurate. I should note that they are by no means large dining room chairs; I purchased them for my small, round kitchen table, and they go great! One other thing: I spilled coffee on one of them, and used a very mild stain remover to clean it.. and some of the gray color of the velvet faded! I used a very mild cleaner, one that I've used on velvet products previously, but was still shocked to see the color on the seat changed. It's not a big deal for me, hardly noticeable (I doubt anyone else can even see it) but I wanted to included that in my review for other spill-prone people who are considering buying these chairs. I do really love them though; great buy!

Ordered 4 sets of 8 chairs. These Christopher Knight dining chairs come in 4colors. Black, Charcoal, Grey, and Purple. I wanted a light grey and chose the "Grey" because the photo of the chair showed it to be lighter than the "Charcoal" and "Black". However, when they arrived, they were dark grey with a blue sheen (the color that was associated with the "Charcoal" chair photo. Nice color but not what the picture showed. I recently went back to the website and now the lighter grey color (the color I wanted) is shown as the Charcoal color chair. I guess they were switched when I placed my original order. Glad Overstock fixed the error, but now I have the hassle of returing four large boxes and reorder new chairs to try to get the lighter grey before they sell out.
Ordered 2 sets of 2 of these chairs. Very nice looking and comfortable. Only problem was one of the chairs in the 2nd order broke. Had guests over for dinner and one of the front legs where it attaches to seat cracked and broke. Still waiting on replacement. They only come in sets of 2 and they are sending us a set and want us to unpack one chair for a replacement, pack the broken chair in box and send it back. A bit of a pain. Hope it arrives soon.

They are a nice dark grey, darker than in the photo, but any fabric will stain if spilled upon, but for light to moderate use without children using it for a stool, I would recommend it!vacationjunky on Jun 24, 2013
