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.

These chairs replaced four that came with my dining room set. The original chairs were heavy with thick maple wood seats. The first thing I noticed when picking up the boxes the chairs came in is that they seemed very light, once assembled they are obviously not the same quality as what came with me dining set but they seem to be adequate and they are attractive chairs. Assembly was easy and after the first one I had things went quickly.
I saw a couple other reviews that mentioned nails sticking out through the sliders on the bottom of the chairs and one of mine did have a nail protruding. I didn't notice it during assembly and only found out when it wouldn't slide on my floor because it was gouging into the linoleum, I definitely recommend checking them well before putting them on your floor.
Overall I'd recommend these chairs for an inexpensive and attractive option however spending a bit more would likely get your more durability and be a better value in the long run.
after opening all boxes, we did find one box that had a broken seat and hardware missing. I then called customer support and was helped out very quickly and very courteously. We have received replacement parts and all chairs are assembled and we like them very much. We will most definitely use your company in the future, and refer you to our friends. Again thank you for the prompt service.
I don't know the exact weight, but they are sturdy enough to hold a more than average adult.lovetodecorate24 on Jul 9, 2014
I don't know the exact weight either but they are very light chairs. These replaced a set that came with my dining table and my previous chairs were much more sturdy and heavy. That said, I am a very big guy and so far they have held me without issue.itsmetimd on Aug 20, 2014
Hi, Can you confirm the measurements for the chairs? The listed measurements seem very low if used at a normal table. Thank you.charmedquarks on Apr 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Rubberwood Farmhouse Table is what we use these chairs with. I am 6 feet and my wife is 5' 4" and we are both fine with the height of the chairs at the above table. Use that tables dimensions to compare to your table choice for them and perhaps you will have a better idea about how they will work for you.kspp on Apr 23, 2014
