These are really nice chairs that work great around a small table. The only complaint we had was with delivery. The boxes they came in looked like they had been hit by a train. We ordered 4. One had a broken leg and and another had scratches all over the wood legs. We called Overstock and they sent us 2 new chairs and said to expect a UPS guy to come pick up the defected chairs. We packaged them back up and kept them in our foyer waiting for the UPS guy to come get them. We called Overstock and they said if they didnt come by x date then we could dispose of the items. They never came so we threw away the broken chair and kept the other (even though it has scratched legs) in case we have more ppl. So the process was really annoying but the chairs are nice.
I needed gorgeous classy seating for a huge dining room table. These chairs would have fit the bill, except that the dessicant packets broke open and the little balls left round indents in the chairs. I did not have enough time (holidays!) to have them replaced by Overstock, so had to choose a local option. Kudos to Overstock's outstanding customer service for a quick return of the defective chairs. If I had a longer turn around time, these would have been really great for the $$$. The earlier review about chair sizing was excellent information... I was buying chairs for a vintage table, so the measurements were perfect.
I purchased a total of 6 chairs. One of them broke in the first month. The leg just completely broke from a simple slide forward while someone was sitting on it. The other chairs have held up over the last year but I always worry that they are weak. We don't use the chairs everyday - (they are in our formal dining room) When company comes I get nervous that a chair will brake on them...
I had high hopes for the set but ended up returning it. There is a sheen to the finish that it doesn't look high quality at all. The price is really affordable to think about it, though. I just thought it would be a great bargain really all those glowing reviews.
We have 2 little boys and a dog; a very active and sometimes messy household. We bought one set of these chairs back in 2011, as we have a colonial table set and the other chairs are a bit big for our small living space. We liked them so much that we ordered 2 more sets to replace the bulky colonial chairs we had. I was relieved they were still available on Overstock! They are comfortable and sturdy.
I've had them for about 2 years and there are as sturdy as when I First bought them. My husband is 6'9", and 220 pounds so they need to be strong. I wanted leather at the dinning table for spiels, so it wouldn't get stained like cloth, no stains, no scratches, even with animals and kids. There Classy enough when you have a dinner party they dont look out of place, but also simple that they look fine for every day use.
