I ordered the country chairs to go with a new table that I just bought and they matched perfectly. I love these chairs because they are sturdy and pretty. I am kind of a heavy lady and they are just great. I feel confortable and safe in these chairs.
Previous reviews indicated these are sturdy chairs even for a larger person. They do feel sturdy. The only concern I have is the front legs have a normal width and as the picture shows, has a slight flair at the bottom. The back legs are actually narrower. It isn't a huge difference but enough that our 9 yr old who has a hard time not tipping on chairs has had it slip out from under him twice because of the narrower legs in the back. Fortunately this was on carpet and hopefully will teach a lesson. When I sit on it and lean to the side to grab something off the floor I feel like it could slip, but it hasn't. We bought 6 of these chairs and they went together well when using the proper tools. They look very nice and we are happy with the purchase.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is fairly accurate. The stain is lighter than what we used to have so the difference might have been my mindset.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. These feel sturdy and the paint is well done. The underside peices that go against the chair (not really even seen if you turn it over, are not painted with 2 coats.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Quite accurate
I ordered two packages (four chairs total). The packages were delivered quickly. On opening one of the packages and examining the pieces, I found that one seat had something spilled on the underside and on an edge, which would be visible after assembly. Also, there was a defect in the wood of one rung (on the top, where it could be seen). The hardware bag (paper) was torn, allowing some of the washers to spill into the carton, and, given how the carton was sealed (or not sealed), they could have slipped out during shipping. Fortunately, I did manage to find all the washers in the carton.
My biggest concern, however, was the lack of any instruction sheet for assembly. The only "instructions" were stickers on some of the pieces indicating "left" or "right." Having recently assembled some similar chairs (with instructions), though, I managed to figure it out.
The other package also had no instruction sheet, so this was not a fluke. After assembling the frame of one chair, something did not look right, and on comparing it to a chair assembled from the first package, I realized that the side rails had been mislabeled as to left and right, so I had to disassemble and reassemble it. The other pair of side rails also was mislabeled.
The chairs have nylon glides on the legs. Some of them were not pounded in completely, and one had the nail head (which should be embedded in the nylon) exposed. I wound up removing the glides and replacing them with adhesive felt pads.
I consider the assembled chairs to be of marginally-acceptable quality (sturdiness and finish) and would not recommend this item.

Chairs are a decent quality for the price. Received the chairs undamaged. Fairly easy to assemble as long as you take your time. The only problem was the screw that secures the front of the seat down on the frame was too short. Very irritating if you do not have a longer screw available. A nice chair for the price.
These chairs look attractive and go well with a similar drop-leaf table I also got on Overstock. However, putting them together was a very unpleasant experience. The first chair took forever to assemble. The instructions were almost non-existent. I had to assemble/disassemble the chair twice to get it right. It was summertime, so, too tired and hot to work on the second chair, I quit. Next day, chair #2 went together much more quickly, probably because of experience with chair #1. Not so much guesswork involved. The chairs were comfortable and seemed sturdy. However, (AGAIN) it is 2 months later and both chairs are getting loose and wobbly. I plan to spend today tightening the chairs. I'm not sure how long they will hold up. Next time Pre-assembled chairs will be my
These are great-looking, sturdy chairs that look perfect in our first apartment! They are not the highest quality furniture, but they are very clean and stylish and quite sufficient for our needs. They are definitely good value for the price. The rubberwood seat has a nice color and grain, and will match any other furniture you may have that's made of natural-colored tropical hardwood, which a lot of inexpensive furniture is these days. The chairs were relatively simple to assemble, though much easier to put together with 2 people. By myself I was able to assemble one chair in a little under 30 minutes. Assembly definitely requires a ratcheting screwdriver or electric screwdriver -- trying to use just the cheap alan wrenches included would drive you crazy! Also, we found that the screws included to attach the center front of the seat to the legs were a little too short, but a quick trip to the local hardware store for some longer screws fixed that problem. Overall, I'm very pleased with these chairs; they are definitely sturdy and comfortable enough for daily use. The style of the chairs is great because they could easily fit into country-themed decor or more modern decor (like our apartment) depending on the way you furnish the rest of the room. We are very happy with this purchase!
