These chairs provide a cozy country look, without looking like they came from the 1980s. Sleek country is how I would describe them.

I guess for the price of these chairs I should have known better. plus the fact there weren't any previous reviews. they are very poor quality, they were chipped in places, the paint came off on my husbands hands while putting them together. i would not recommend them at all.i did end up keeping them because my Husband think's their "cute". but I'm sure they won't last long.

Finish was not complete, bare wood showing. Seat doesn't fit flush to base. Spindles on second tier spin freely. Finish is tacky, rubs off.

We bought these chairs for our dining room. The color was a nice, rich espresso, but they were so not comfortable (on the back especially) and the spindles on the back of the chair seemed flimsy. Because we spend so much time lingering around the table after meals I knew they wouldn't work for us. Needless to say we returned them.

I bought these chairs to update the look of my dining room table. The table was my parents and is a beautiful maple table but the chairs were very out of date looking. I was concerned the new chairs would not look right because the legs are straight and the table has spindle type legs but they look beautiful. The wood actually goes very well and the style of the chair is lovely. The only problem I had was on one chair I had problems getting the screw to go all the way in but my friend fixed that. Otherwise I highly recommend these chairs for that classic modern look for a dining room. The color and fabric is very rich. Great choice and price.

These chairs came in several parts with a bag of screws and washers. Surprisingly, they were very easy to put together. The only thing to watch out for is that you will want to make sure you don't screw the leg spindle screws in at an angle. A screw started to pop out on the leg when I did that, nearly marring the pretty red paint. Instead, make sure to screw directly into the center of the wood. Other than that gaffe on my part, I am very happy with these pretty little chairs and wish I could have bought more.

The chairs arrived packed very well, no damage. The chairs are solidly built, but light weight at the same time. The chairs are also sturdy, and do not wobble. My family was worried about comfort, but they are quite comfortable. I replaced wood spindle back chairs for the vintage color Tabouret chairs, and they look great with our light/medium color wood table. My kitchen looks more open with these chairs, as they are a bit lower than my other chairs, and more open on the seat back. I am hoping to buy additional chairs when the vintage color is back in stock. Very pleased with the Tabouret chairs.

Had spindle back chairs before this purchase. Big mistake, they broke after a few months use. The school house chairs arrived in good condition. These are sturdy, well made. Slight wobble but used felt pads to balance the legs of the chairs. These chairs are similar to those in a well known seafood restaurant. Have used these chairs for over a month and am happy with them.

Love love love these chairs. One did arrive with bottom spindle popped out of hole, but just used wood glue and a heavy vice and fixed it myself. Did I say I LOVE these chairs. Highly recommend; just note color variation... these are a grayish based french blue; NOT light powder blue. High quality, excellent design element for cottage and/or country kitchen feel.

I really love the chairs! I purchased six! They really did not take long to assemble. Thats saying a lot for me, since I had never put anything together of this magnitude. My husband always did the tough stuff. However, I noticed that the wood was split where the spindle is at the top of one of the chairs. I called Overstock and am now in the process of waiting to see what will be done about it, since I have already put it together. Also, I found the packaging of the screws and bolts was very poorly done and some of them were lost in the handling. I had to go to Lowes and purchase what I needed, because I thought that would be faster - and it was. Now for the chairs, I think they are great, both quality and eye appeal! Really glad I purchased them!

I love the style of these chairs! The gray is very light and muted. It's not an obvious, deep gray, but the color is enough that it stands out from other white furniture (I have them paired with a white kitchen table). I ordered two sets of these chairs, and 3 out of 4 came somewhat damaged (cracks in the wood; not all of the spindles would stay securely in the holes for them on the seat of the chair; etc.). One of those three was only so slightly cracked that I would not have worried about it if the others had been fine. I called Overstock, and they had absolutely wonderful customer service. Unfortunately, the chairs were sold out, so I was not able to order replacements. We are using a couple of the chairs right now, and they seem to be holding up well. The chairs are light and obviously not of super high quality, but you would not know that just by looking at them! For this price, they will be our chairs for a few years until we can save up for higher quality chairs. But they serve their purpose given the cheap price!

If you're looking for something sturdy and attractive, then this is it! Oh yeah, you'll have to assemble it yourself. Bummer--because the instructions aren't nearly as helpful as they could be. I made several attempts and finally got the chair put together. Several things you'll want to keep in mind: first, don't screw in the spindle-supports until the very end; second, be very careful about placement of the seat before you screw it on (there are no pilot holes). If there's any complaint (besides the lack of really explicit instructions), it's that the back of the chair tilts back slightly. I'll be using this chair to go with a study desk and suspect I'll have to pad the back to give me a little more forward tilt. Two more comments: I really appreciated the careful packaging. Out of the box, the chair was in perfect condition. I'd also say the color is true to the picture online. My desk is maple and the chair matches it to a T.

These are very good chairs for the price. The look very nice with our handmade reclaimed wood farm table, and "hold their own". They are large and comfortable and attractive. Not bad to assemble....my husband did the assembling, but it seemed to go smoothly and he didn't yell or swear, lol... ;) One of the chairs arrived with a crack in one of the spindles. Overstock sent a new one at their expense, no problem, and said to do as we wished with the original one we received... excellent customer service. The replacement they shipped did come with a screw missing. We called the company directly and they are sending a replacement screw. We are happy with the purchase...for economy chairs shipped with very low shipping cost right to our door, they are a great purchase. We needed chairs and needed something inexpensive, and these fit the bill and look great and are very generously sized and comfortable. Would recommend... :)

Pros: - These chairs are light-weight and seem sturdy, though we've not had them that long so can't speak to long-term durability. - Small in size, which was a necessity for our small table/space. - Good price. - No assembly required. - Seat size is perfectly adequate for someone of average size. - Comes with plastic buttons on the bottom of the feet to protect your floors. Cons: - Not very comfortable -- you'll DEFINITELY need seat cushions for the perfectly flat seat, and the back spindles (with no curve and not a flat surface against your back) do not encourage you to lean against them. Fine for quick daily meals, but you won't want to linger. - For a larger person, the seat size might feel a bit cramped. - One oddity I noticed is that the wood color is inconsistent. Not a problem for us, but be warned if you're an aesthete. Overall I'd say these are a good value. Nothing spectacular but they are fairly inexpensive and if your table is small, they fit better than many other models out there. Be sure to leave room in the budget for seat cushions!

I love Overstock, there is never any guilt over any purchase (since it is so inexpensive)....until THIS purchase! I bought 4 of these "gray" chairs for an upcoming dinner. I figured the price was so low, that even if I wasn't crazy about them they could be stored in the basement for occasional use. They came promptly, color was not gray at all (more of a dingy white), easy to put together, and I noticed that there were some nails that were not placed correctly (around where the spindles are). There were also some shards missing in some areas....but who cares, they were inexpensive, and it turns out, cheap. I put them together for use that night. The next morning I noticed so much damage to my new bamboo floors!!! Scratches and huge indentations from the chairs scraping the floor! At the end of each leg there were sharp metal pieces (I guess to reinforce the leg), and since the legs are at an angle, the felt pads don't do anything since they don't stay on. I'm so upset by the damage to my floors that I can't even call Overstock to complain, I'm sure they will try to make amends, but the boxes have been tossed out so I can't even send it back anyways. And my floors are horribly scratched and marred. Should have passed on this one and saved myself the heartache.

These are beautiful chairs. They are darker than the photograph (which appears almost neon, at least on my monitor). Unlike the other person who reviewed them, mine did not come with a single scratch or chip. Remember that when you purchase spray-painted furniture, you're not purchasing stained wood. If you realize this, you'll realize the risks you take in the purchase. The chairs are sturdy. I got one together with no problem; HOWEVER, the directions are abysmal. The second, using the look-at-the-picture-and-figure-it-out-yourself method that lots of assemblable furniture manufacturers seem to think passes muster these days-- Well, the leg splintered. Overstock is sending me replacements. Overall, I can say that I'm extremely happy with the purchase *even with* this setback. I searched the internet for discreet colored furniture--THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE I FOUND IT.

I love these chairs. I bought 6, for my basement, and they are lovely. Finish is great, they are a slightly deeper colour than I expected, but it looks great. Sturdy and well built, and a great deal.

I LOVE my new chairs. They are a traditional or even country design, but the color makes them very modern. They are exactly what I was looking for. These chairs are tagged and boxed by Safavieh Home Furnishings and I found my chairs listed as a Parker side chair on their website at 3 times the price. I already knew I had a bargain before I found this, but I didn't realize just how much of one. My one and only disappointment is that there is no cap at the end of each leg. The hole is there and it's easy enough to pick one up at the hardware store, but it should've been included. The chairs have a generous seat, so any size person will be comfortable. I've placed these on my covered porch with a green Home Styles Bali Hai Outdoor Rocking Chair and a modern side table and they look FABULOUS!

Received 2 cracked chairs and 1 set of legs that were uneven, so the chair teetered. Also, like the first poster said, there were a lot of paint chips. They should have included leg caps to even the chair with the floor, and a raspberry colored marker to color over expected paint chips.

For the price, the chairs can't be beat. The color is VERY light, but I don't mind. They were such a bargain that I'm not sure that it matters. They have great style and look great against my shiny black dinner table. My fiancÚ put the all four chairs together in a little less than an hour. I am very pleased with the chairs at the price.
When you choose furniture for your dining room, you set the stage for the type of room it will be. Will you choose pieces that make the room feel elegant, cozy, or playful? Once you've decided what feeling you want, you can start your search for dining room furniture. And no matter what style of dining room you want, there are dining chairs that will add the function and appearance that you want.
If you are updating your dining room and your home decor, dining chair slipcovers are a low-cost solution and offer many options. Before you purchase a new set of chair slipcovers, however, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. Chair style, chair size and fabric requirements all play a part in selecting dining chair slipcovers.
