The chairs have a nice padding, but there isn't enough padding on the front of the seat where your knees bend. You can feel the wood and it's not the most comfortable. The tufting and gray fabric looks nicer in the photos. I got these on sale so I'm going to keep them but if I paid full price I would be returning them. They were really easy to assemble and sturdy. These are packaged really poorly. There is no padding in the box, so the back legs poked through the box and got damaged. Chunks of wood are missing so I have to send them back for a replacement.
Just like all of the other reviews say, this is not the quality of a $800 dining chair. But I'm super picky, and it's a very very nice chair. I'm doing Hollywood Regency style and my furnishings have to look sharp or I won't pull of the luxurious look. I was concerned about color... too light, weak, pale and sad? It's not. It is a very luxurious, medium-reflective velvet that displays a warm, deep champagne color at one angle of viewing and a lighter, yet still very rich color from another angle. It's better than I had hoped for! They are sturdy. They were easy to put together. I feel like I'm sitting in a well made chair. And I even asked about shipping rates for getting them back to Overstock in case they weren't comfortable because I've decided that my days of sitting on an uncomfortable dining chair while chatting with friends for 2 hours after dinner are over. I wasn't going to settle for anything less that very very comfortable. And guess what... SUPER comfy. Not like a sofa, but dang close! The back is well padded and a great angle. The seat is very well padded with just the right amount of support in the center. I can't say enough about how wonderful this chair is. If you are anything like me and you are concerned that it's going to be a cheap color, poorly made, probably not that comfortable chair.... rest at ease and order. I love them!!!
Love the champagne velvet. Goes very well with beige and expresso brown table and other chairs. Easy to put together, fast delivery. No damage during delivery. Great value for a set of two. One of the legs cracked when screwed in, I got online with the customer service, and within 48 hrs, they resolved the issue. They shipped out a set of two front legs (even though I needed only one) for me so quickly! Great service and response. The velvet makes it look very classy and upscale.
These are great side chairs for my dining room. I hope these hold up over time. We don't use the dining room all that much so they should. They are true to the color. You have to put them together yourself but after we figured out the first one the rest were easier. They came packaged very nicely. We had a problem with one of the legs but a quick call to the help desk and all was taken care of. Thanks "O" for your excellent prices and customer service and quick delivery.
I am reluctant to buy assemble-yourself furniture as I am not particularly handy but these chairs were easy to assemble in just a few pieces and only needed a few adjustments along the way to make sure the legs were balanced. I like the pleating on the chairs (vs. the usual buttons that trap dirt) and the fabric looks nice. The fabric doesn't feel as rich to the touch as it looks but the quality is still good. The seat base is wider than I thought so we are using these two chairs as accent end chairs. Because they are padded, they will also be nice extra seating when we need it as well. For the quality and price, they are a good buy. I bought the ivory and think that they may have looked richer in another color but am still very happy with my purchase.
For this price they are great. I knew I wasn't getting $*chairs - so if you accept that - they are a really nice deal. Also, Overstocked had great customer service. One out of 8 chairs was damaged and they got me a replacement right away.
