I returned these chairs ONLY because they are very contemporary and simply did not look right with the rest of my furniture. However, if my overall style had been more contemporary, I would have kept them. They are rather large in scale and more of a true ivory vs a cream/off-white. The stitching on the leather, and overall construction, of the chair seemed very good. The comfort level is moderate. Since they are leather, I would imagine over time it would give a bit and become more comfortable. Even though the style didn't work for me, I would still recommend them for those who have a very modern / contemporary style!

Excellent mid century replica Wassily chairs for a fraction of the cost! Bought 2 and they are an instant hit with guests. As mentioned by other reviewers, they aren't brilliant white but more off white. They arrived fully assembled (note: boxes are unusually large due to this).
This product is NOT leather but Vinyl. The ends are melted together - leather does not 'melt' And I ordered two - the bar holding the arm had a broken screw. It's not an ordinary screw and it fell inside the metal bar and would not come out! Had to return it. Wish I noticed the melted vinyl ends and I would have returned BOTH!
5 stars for looks, 3 stars for comfort. This chair looks exactly like the black Wassily chair my dad had in the 70's. I purchased this for my home office, so it won't be getting a lot of lounge use. It's perfect for my office and some occasional sitting, but I would not recommend it for a living area where you would be sitting in it watching television or something like that. Definitely a conversation piece. Fantastic value for the item.
In life, there's usually no substitute for the real thing. That's why if you want a classic Porsche 911, you have to buy a Porsche 911- a replica won't do. And if money were no object, we'd all be driving classic cars and sitting in iconic original furniture. But for those that want to experience 'near-luxe', this is where this chair nicely meets the need. For $*** delivered, it looks the business in the corner of our bedroom, and no one will ask "is it original".. the answer is, who cares. This thing arrived in a large box, and after unpacking, was in its rightful place. More a piece to occupy space and add detail to the room, it won't be sat in all that often (may server more as a nightime closehorse) but that's why I could never justify the full price of an original.
Love love love. One was damaged in shipping. Overstock immediacy replaced it. Looks great in my contemporary. Living room. Ordered a fur pillow for one, a bright yellow small throw draped on the arm of the second chair. Chairs are amazingly comfortable
Very nice chair for the money. It's not a stark bright white ( more of a very, very light cream)but still passed as white & worked well with other white leather furniture in the room. The chair is a bargain & well constructed for an occasional chair.
You won't be disappointed! Of course you can't expect the quality of the original but this reproduction does not fall short of the small cost. It's not pure bright white but an off white or close to ivory. That being said it shouldn't deter you from purchasing if you want pure white; I think the ivory color looks great mixed with all shades of white. As far as comfort, it is pretty stiff out of the box, I'm sure that the bonded leather will give more once it is used more. But it is still comfortable because of the design and how the angle of the straps contour to your body. Expect some cracking in the seams with sealed areas on the straps. I'm very meticulous in details and though the splitting doesn't bother me , I think you should know. They do pick up dirt but are easy to wipe down with just a damp cloth. The chair is beautiful and bought a pair for an office reception. I prefer this color over the black version they carry here on overstock, the black chairs have a light brown stitching throughout the straps. They aren't entirely black. All in all I think they are worth the money to achieve the look of the original that is substantially a lot more. So I think you will be happy you bought them.
This is a great chair for my eclectic/modern space. It is surprisingly comfortable and well made. The material is very taut and does not "give" with seating. The chrome frame is shiny with no tarnishing. I am pleased with this purchase.
