The style of these chairs are classy but the manufacturing is very poor. They are made in China and the workmanship is horrible. I ordered 6 chairs and the finish on 3 of the wooden seats is damaged. It appears they may have been packaged before the top coat finish dried and the top coat is rubbed off in several spots. Not afraid to assemble furniture but good luck lining up pilot holes. The back metal support holes do not line up and it required drilling a larger hole to match up to the chair leg. The pilot holes for the wooden seats to attach to the metal frame were non-existent or drilled in the incorrect location. There are suppose to be 2 pilot holes in the back and one in the front of the seat - holes were reversed. My husband was able to drill proper holes for assembly but the wooden seats are unacceptable. Working with Overstock to remedy but I can not get just the wooden seats so I am stuck refinishing the ones I have or receiving new chairs to scavenge parts. There is no guarantee the new seats won't have the same problem. If you do not have the ability or interest in fixing these chairs do NOT purchase them. And, if you are willing to take the chance, best of luck to you.
Great look, reasonably comfortable to eat a meal or do homework but not a chair you would lounge in. For color we placed a pillow on the back and that makes them more comfortable when Im sitting and doing bills at the table. Easy to assemble. Sturdy once built. They are keepers.
We were going to order 12 chairs, but decided to try only two of them first. So what else can you expect from products which are made in China, wrong side of chair legs i.e. two right sides for one of the chairs, holes not in the right place for screws to go into, we didn't even try to assemble the other one. I, and many others, would pay more for U.S. made again. Sent them back a while ago, and still have not been credited for the return.
Purchased these for our new kitchen table and was pleasantly surprised with the great style of these chairs. They were very easy to assemble, I do not understand some of the reviews about miss drilled holes. The seat bases come with no holes so that the supplied screws bite into the wood base. I screwed the screws right into the base with no problem and no pilot hole. Highly recommend them for great on a budget. I have received many compliments on them already.
I love the styling and fit of these new chairs. We took a chance on purchasing them without "sitting" first, but they are comfortable and substantial. We updated a traditional pedestal dining table with 2 sets of these chairs. The metal/rustic wood combination is modern industrial with a touch of traditional. They were not hard to put together. The criss-cross back stands straight up for a smaller space and gives a nice see-through, uncluttered look. I'm very pleased with the quality and value of this product.
