I just received this chair today and wanted to write a review before I forgot. The chair arrived the same week I ordered it, which is really nice. I've seen similar chairs in chain discount stores around town for about $299. Actually I'm pretty sure that the chairs I've seen are sold on this site too. Anyways, to me that means the price is fair, plus I didn't have to try and squeeze it into my car. I didn't have any problems with the shipping, UPS delivered it without any damage. It came in a protective bag like some of the other reviewers have noted. Like a big showercap for a chair. The legs screwed right in, and that is the extent of putting it together. As for comfort, i've only had it a day and I think the cushioning needs to be broken in. It's not uncomfortable, just stiff. Despite that, I like sitting in it. I immediately sprayed a stain protectant on it because dirty little feet will definitely take their toll. I'm not much for traditional furniture, but this is more classic. Somehow it matches my slightly vintage-modern decor, I think because the fabric is casual.

This chair really is BEAUTIFUL! The style is elegant and I am constantly getting comments on how beautiful it is. It is a bit narrow compared to some wider armchairs so there's not much room in it, but it's perfect for me and my small space. I thought that the color matched the pictures, in contrast to what some other users have said; the color just depends on what lighting it's in. The material is sort of multicolored, with little brown flecks, but I like that because I think it will hide any marks or stains. The one thing is that the shipping for this product was HORRIBLE. When the chair came it was completely dented in on the size and the back was coming off. I'm going to have to replace the entire side. The package it was shipped in was completely torn up and taped together. There was no bubble wrap or padding around the chair in any way - clearly there should be. In contrast to what some other users have said however, the legs were completely intact. Despite the terrible shipping, Overstock handled the issue wonderfully - they really have phenomenal customer service and I would HIGHLY recommend buying from Overstock. I just wish they had better shipping methods!! All this being said, it is a beautiful, comfortable chair and well worth the price (so long as it doesn't arrive broken).
An absolutely lovely piece. I would purchase a sofa in this style if it were an option. I have been on the "perfect chair hunt" for a while. I have found plenty, but they came with hefty price tags. Overstock.com offered a gorgeous, quality piece at a price that was very reasonable. The fabric is soft and pretty and goes with everything. So thrilled with my new chair!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly different than beige linen means to me. Flecks of oat and cream. Love it!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy. A deeper and wider seat for larger peeps or to pull your feel up to relax. Super comfy!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Spot on and soooo glad it was.
This is the first time I've ordered furniture from overstock.com, so I really relied on reviews from other people to make my choice. I ordered 2 to use in my living room. I'm glad I made the leap because the chairs are beautiful. They look much more expensive than they actually cost, but as other people mentioned, they're a little more on the firm side. We have been using a vintage ottoman to put our feet up and that's made "lounging" in the chairs possible. I wouldn't otherwise spend long time frames in this chair. The color is not cream as it looks in the picture, but more of a beige woven fabric design. I'd definitely recommend them for the price. Plus, overstock shipped them in 1 week's time, which was impressive.
I had been looking for a reading chair and saw many that would cost around $1000 in furniture shops. I came across this one, which looked similar to the ones that I had been looking at, for a fraction of the price. I decided to risk and and am happy to do so. The chair is a good size, nice fabric, and very good finish. The feet --which come for you to screw on the bottom of the chair-- is OK though I'm not sure if it will stay tightly in place if the chair gets a lot of use. Overall this is an excellent purchase.

Rear legs broke. the screws were too short and did not fit well. Be prepared to either change the screws on the legs or the legs completely. had to go to Home deport to buy generic legs. Be sure to get the current length or this will change the characteristics of the chair.
These chairs were the perfect addition to my front sitting room. They are firm but comfortable. My height is 5'3", so it can be hard to find a chair that I can sit comfortably and will also accommodate my 6' husband. They are also high quality, look expensive and have upholstery that seems like it will hold up well. The color is a tad darker than pictured, but still look excellent with the walls, dark floors and teal and off-white accents I have in that room.
I just received the Joussard Beige Club Chair today. It was packed in a giant L-shaped box and was wrapped inside a white slip cover that was helpful when moving the chair to its destination - it was light enough to drag across smooth hardwood floors before assembly. All I had to do was screw in the legs and flip it over! I was very pleased with the color in person - it is a slightly more ivory/natural shade compared to the photograph - not stark white. As far as comfort goes, the seat cushion is perfect - cushy, yet firm support. The only thing I would suggest is that you definitely need a pillow to support your back (and maybe a small head pillow for relaxing). Because the color is neutral, I assume most customers will be purchasing a decorative pillow anyway to match with their decor or for a splash of color. This chair fit perfectly in my bedroom corner as my little sitting area / reading nook.
This is a well-constructed, nice looking chair. I have this in a bedroom and the scale fits nicely with the size of a queen bed. (I previously had a different chair here that was dwarfed by the bed). The tufting, arms, and legs of this chair are very graceful. The color is only slightly darker than it appears in the photo. As you can see when you enlarge the photo, the threads of cream to beige are visible. So it's not a solid color, but it's subtle enough to combine easily with prints. As was mentioned in other reviews, the seat is very firm. Too soon to tell if it will soften in time. But I'm very pleased with the purchase.
I ordered these chairs based on looking at the picture and reading other peoples reviews. They arrived quickly and the quality of the chair is excellent. The problem that I have is that the color of the chair is not at all what the picture shows on Overstock. It has a definite brownish tan fleck all through the material. If you look at the picture there is not tan or brown fleck on the material. It just doesn't go with what I ordered it to go with. Good quality and workmanship but poor representation of color on the site!
This chair looks great next to our fireplace as a ready nook. Assembly was very easy. The color is slightly more beige than the picture shows, like many other reviewers said. I was prepared for that, so overall I was happy with the color. I still wish the chair were a bit more ivory than light beige. Otherwise, looks exactly like the photo.
I searched for months for a set of chairs like these for my living room. I wanted quality and design and when I finally settled on 2 of these I couldn't be happier. They are beautiful and look great in my living room. The quality is more than I expected and they arrived within one day of each other. Great buy!
I bought two of these chairs for my living room several months ago. They look great and fit nicely without taking up too much room. My only slight complaint is each chair was missing one of the rubber washers for a leg and the legs did not seem to screw in all the way. I couldn't make one more full turn of the screw without the curve facing the wrong way. It doesn't seem to matter much and they do sit securely. They are not high end quality but then I didn't expect that for the price! Very satisfied overall.
