The quality is good for the price. The seat cushion is a little firm but not uncomfortable and will soften with use. Shipping was fast. The chair arrived with no damage and was easy to put together. However, the color (STONE) is very different from how it appears on the website. I was expecting a slight different due to color balance, lighting etc., but not so different that I thought they shipped the wrong chair. The color is much warmer - more of a sandstone. It doesn't match my decor but I don't feel like returning it since it was only intended for a spare room. My husband likes it and doesn't care about the color. I'll be looking for a high quality or custom slipcover to remedy the problem.
The chair is definitely darker than the picture, but I like the actual color of it better. It's a lovely creamy beige, and it looks good with both warm and cool colors. The fabric also seems to be of very high quality. The chair was a piece of cake to assemble, and it's incredibly comfortable-- it has a little give, but it's still firm enough that it seems like it will hold up well over time. It's really made the whole room look more sophisticated, so I'm thrilled with my purchase!
All in all, this is a great chair...but you do get what you pay for - don't go expecting top of the line craftsmanship. That said, it doesn't look like a very cheap chair and it is actually quite supportive and comfortable (I have been chair shopping in so many furniture and department stores and even many expensive chairs are so soft that you sink right into them, or they have no back support, or are way too low for tall people - My husband and I are tall and like firm seating and good back support - this chair delivers all of those things). Some caveats are that the color is definitely off, as other reviewers have commented. To me, if you look at the photo for the same chair but in the "driftwood" color online, that is a better representation of what the color looks like in real life, at least with my monitor. It is a pretty, neutral color but just darker/warmer than the photo for the stone color indicates. Additionally, the price is incredibly cheap so it is only natural that some corners were cut in assembly - the front part of the chair where your back goes is not upholstered all the way, however, the back cushion does seem to cover it so it shouldn't be noticeable. I'm only mentioning it because i wasn't expecting that. Because that back support part is not upholstered all the way, they attach the back cushion to it using velcro so it stays put (if you have anyone fidgety in the chair, when they adjust themselves pushing back, you may hear the sound of the velcro moving). My chair arrived with a large tear about 5" long in the fabric and they simply stapled it together and packed up the chair - poor quality control. However, the tear is on an inner part of the chair and in the back so it is not really noticeable (after I cut off all the frayed fabric and loose strings anyway) so I kept it because it would have been too much of a hassle to pack up and return a chair for this unnoticeable defect. Also, the chair is super easy to assemble. Just screw on the legs (all the holes line up well), place the back piece into the existing metal tracks and slide down, and then place on the back cushion and pillow. Just takes a few minutes and can easily be done by one person. None of the pieces were heavy or complicated at all.

I was very pleased with this chair. It was my first purchase on Overstock and I was happy with the entire experience. The chair was darker than the picture, but I knew that from other reviews so I purposely ordered the lighter chair and wound up with the color I wanted. Not too big, not too small, perfect size. The material is almost like a very soft tweed, hard to explain, but it is textured which I really liked. I ordered two of them for my family room and they look great with my other pieces of furniture!

I needed a chair with a soft round shape for the bedroom, but I would not have bought this if I'd seen it in person 1st. I am very disappointed with the quality, even at this low price. The fabric looks & feels cheap and covers the chair a little too loosely. I expect it will be stretched/worn out sooner than later. It is, however, soft - almost like a chenille but with the look of a slub linen - and the color is a perfect neutral beige/light tan. My main complaint is that the piping around the top-front panels of the arms looks TERRIBLE - they are completely misshapen & wavy - not at all a smooth rounded curve. Also the proportions look a little strange because the back just slides in between the arms with no overlap on top - making the arms appear TOO LONG. One look at this thing & it just screams CHEAP! I suppose I'll keep it though since it is pretty comfortable & my kids like to snuggle up in it.
Good chairs ..after a year and half of owning them and really taking care...the back cushion seems to be getting out of shape.

This is a nice little chair! I live in an apartment so I was looking for a smaller armchair that I could still relax in. The size of this chair was perfect for me, not too large in the space but I can still curl my legs up underneath me in it (and I am a pretty tall female, 5'9"). I think the quality is great for the price. It has a simple but contemporary look and is comfortable to sit in. The color is just a little warmer/darker than pictured, which I expected from reading the reviews. The cushions feel like they could be a little bit more high quality but for the price this chair is really great.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Pretty close, slightly warmer
I purchased this chair for my office at work. The chair arrived well-packaged and very easy to assemble. This chair rests on a brown and cream-figured area rug and contrasts beautifully with it - I have had many many compliments on this chair so far. I am a little less than 5'5", but there is plenty of width and height in this chair for taller guests to sit and to feel very comfortable. I sometimes use a lap desk when I work on my laptop, and the width and placement of the chair arms allows me to do this without any problems. The only thing I might recommend is to have in addition to the pillow provided, a lumbar or pillow roll, etc. This chair is not the most padded, however, the seat has enough depth that it will comfortably accommodate one or two pillows and still leave plenty of leg/sitting room. Overall, I love this chair: the quality, the material, as well as how stylish the clean lines of its design look with my desk furniture.

We ordered two chairs. They are a warmer shade than what is pictures, but that is preferable to me, so that wasn't a problem. Unboxed the first chair, and it was easy to put together. The seats are a bit firm, but comfortable. It had a few strings hanging off of the fabric, but I snipped those off with the scissors. The second chair was more difficult to put together. The back of the chair wouldn't fit into the slot. I had to pull on one arm to make it wider, while my husband slid the back into the slot. The back top of the frame was also slanted, but the cushion hides this. However, the fabric was bubbled up in various places on the chair. I smoothed this out, but not sure if it will hang later. The seem on the front seat cushion is very crooked, and it doesn't look great at all. It is very noticeable, not sure how this wasn't caught when the cushion was put into the cover. I don't want to deal with returning it, so we are stuck with it. The first chair looks great thought. Second chair had a lot more strings to snip off as well.
We needed smaller scale furniture for our living room. These chairs are just perfect for our space. The color is more of a soft wheat than the picture shows and that is fine. Shipping was fast considering it was two large items. We are quite happy with the product and the service.
First of all, the chairs were delivered to the neighbors house by mistake. So I had to go over and lug them home. I was very disappointed in the quality of the chairs. They don't look anything like the picture. The color is darker (like other postings claimed) but the fabric is more of a tweed than a linen and is cheap looking fabric. I didn't even bother to attach the legs beause I knew right away that it wasn't worth the time. The cushions are not stuffed uniformly, so some parts are lumpy and bulge. These chairs would not hold up under regular use. My overall impression is that they are really ugly! Couldn't get them back into the box fast enough! Unfortunately, it will cost me $**.** to return them and the hassle of hauling them over to a UPS drop of place. I learned my lesson!!
We love these chairs (we got two)! They're great quality for the price, and the cushions seem to hold up well. The padding is quite firm in the cushions, and should wear well. The extra pillow needs replaced near immediately, but with the natural color will be easy. For the price (and shipping) these are a great addition to our living room!

I needed two transitional chairs so my two mid century modern/inspired accent chairs would be the stars. They also needed to be on the small side. They were everything I needed. The bonus was how easy they were to assemble, and how comfortable they are. The only down side, but totally understandable because of the price was the seat and back cushions cannot be rotated. I'm fine with that because I am an empty nester and the chairs will only get used when I have guests.

The quality of the chair is not as good in person as it appears to be online. It is cheaply made and seems like it would look old in a short time. It arrived 1 week after purchase and after taking it out the box, I knew immediately that I would return it. I may be pickier than the average buyer, but it definitely was not worth the price in my opinion.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is a shade darker

I like this chair a lot. I think it's comfortable, not too firm. And it looks great in my more contemporary style bedroom.

You get what you pay for! I needed sitting chairs for my sunroom on a budget and settled on these. The upholstery is terrible! The seams around the seat cushions don't begin to line up with the actual shape of the cushion itself. Of course, that's highly visible. They are also QUITE firm. If you're looking for a comfortable chair to curl up in and read for hours, this is not your chair.
The coloring on this chair is off! Do not buy thinking that it is stone...It is more of a beige. The picture makes it look larger and more plush than it is. The cushion is hard. I'm not happy with it but am going to keep it because I don't want the hassle of returning it. This is the first time I've bought over the internet and probably the last. Live and learn.
