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 are just what I was looking for. My house is in the coastal cottage style. I needed new chairs for the dining area. They are good quality, sturdy, not that hard to put together. One of the chairs had a small defect in the cross bars in the back. I noticed it after chair was put together, not that bad but I know it's there. That is why I couldn't give them 5 stars.
I ordered these chairs to replace a set of 6 old ones. I wasn't expecting tremendous quality but hoped they were fairly sturdy and ordered just 2 at first to check them out. When they arrived I opened the box and laid out the pieces to be sure I had everything. It wasn't Ethan Allan, but wasn't Fingerhut either. I was pleasantly surprised as they were better then expected.
The directions weren't too hard if you take the time to study the pictures before you begin. The spreaders force the curved back legs apart from the straight front ones and create a tension that keeps the chair feeling very sturdy. One drawback is that the seat is only held on by 3 smallish screws inserted at an angle. I can foresee them coming loose if they're heavily used on a daily basis. However, the design would easily allow a simple fix to reinforce the seat with small brackets or even glue should that occur.
For $** a pair they were great for what I need them for.
I had one slight problem - a cross threaded bolt that wouldn't thread. I called O and they sent a replacement out. If you have a problem make sure you call the number from the website and NOT the one with the instructions. The instructions phone number was apparently from the importer and rang a number that only told you the mailbox was full. The Overstock.com customer service number was answered quickly and soon I was talking to a HUMAN! It's getting harder to get that anymore.
I ordered 4 more to complete my set.
I ordered two sets of chairs. One of the 4 came badly cracked/damaged. customer service had the issue resolved within 5 minutes. I am VERY pleased with my experience with them! and I love my new chairs!
The chairs came rather quickly, luckily arriving on a Saturday while my husband was home to immediately start putting them together. Went together easily with minimal tools. Only issue was that the legs and/ or support rods were labeled for the wrong side, but it was easy to see where they belonged once you start putting pieces together.
They are very sturdy and the seat is nice and large, fits a seat cushion nicely.
For our casual dining kitchen table these work fine.
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
