Had read all the reviews and decided to purchase 2 sets of chairs... This was the best purchase I had made thus far this year! The chairs arrived undamaged and were beautiful (brownish red) and sturdy, can definitely seat (tall) men with ease and comfort...
I bought 8 of these chairs for my large kitchen table. They looked perfect for about 8 or 9 months. Then I started to notice that some of the leather was peeling off in places on the seat part. Then it started to happen on all of them. It became an avalanche of leather on my floor every time someone sat on them. Which is often. The backs are fine, it is only on the seat. I contacted overstock and they told me basically "too bad, it's not our product". I paid almost $* for these chairs and got absolutely no help from overstock. It has now been nearly 2 years and I cannot have anyone come sit at my table without being completely embarrassed. I now have to pay another $* for ne chairs because overstock does not stand behind what they sell. I have never need their customer service before, and now when I did they completely failed me. I will never buy from here again.
these are sturdy, comfortable chairs. they arrived assembled and in great shape- not a nick or scratch. what a relief to not have to send some thing back. the quality and the shipping has been far far superior to my experience with Pottery Barn and cost less. these chairs look nice in my lodge like home. would buy again
I bought 40 of these chairs less than 24 months ago......the leather finish ( color ) began to peel off the seat and they are a mess. No one will talk to me at Overstock except via text, and unless you buy a warranty, though luck ! Have to replace them right away......
I purchased 8 of these chairs January 2013. The leather is not good quality leather, it is actually coming off my chairs in pieces, they are cracking and starting to look awful. I placed these chairs in my dining room and they are only used about 10 times a year. I would not recommend buying these chairs I will have to replace them with in a couple years because of the leather coming off the chairs, and the cracking of the leather.
Love these chairs! I wouldn't exactly describe them as leather though however, I love the style of these chairs and more importantly that they arrived fully assembled (big packages) and that they do NOT scratch my wood floors. I've also gotten compliments on them as well. I would buy these again!
We purchased these to match the counter stools. Very pretty & overall they are good quality. Leather is dark brown with reddish undertone. One nailhead came loose, and the legs have a few dings, but nothing is a serious flaw. The packages were very badly damaged at delivery, so I was expecting much worse damage. I've always had great experiences from Overstock, so I'm chalking this bad packaging up to a fluke. But that is why I'm giving them 4 stars out of 5.
Unlike others who have reviewed the charis, we just received them yesterday. I'll comment on the issues wuith which they commented: 1. The boxes looked like they had been thrown off a 10 story building. I cannot beleive UPS would accept them in that condition, so the damage to the boxes has to be laid at their feet. They even called me to warn me how damaged the shippping boxes were. 2. Thankfully the chairs themselves were unscathed. Hard to believe - I thought I could find legs broken off, leather torn, etc. They are exactly as shown, perhaps a bit smaller ( good for us) than we anticicpated, but the leather is great, the stitching and the nailheads done to perfection. 3. Leather cracking. Well, we jjust got them, but they do come with a guide to leather care. Leatther is NOT indestructible as it might seem versus fabric. Unless treated a certain way it will stain, it will scratch, and worst of all it will dry out and crack, particularly if the same person sits in the same chair repeatedly. It wrinkles like the skin on our faces - and UNLESS MOISTRUIZED WITH PROPER LEATHER CONDITIONER, it will deteriorate. We have a leather chair that is 20 years old that I have sat in over those 20 years - no cracks - it si conditioned weekly just like the furniture is dusted and polished.- part of our normal cleaning regimen. Worse, if they happen to be exposed to sunilght in a naturally lighted dining room - all the more care needed to keep the leather from drying out. So, right now, very satisfied with our purchase - 6 chairs to go with our new Arhaus Arvada Sheesham wood living edge dining table. Can't wait for the renovation of our diing/kitchen area to be completed so we can take delivery of the table and get everything set up.
