I really like the chairs. They fit my table perfectly. Not too small or too large. The only discrepancy was it stated Assembled and they were not assembled. It took about an hour to assemble 6 chairs. Very pleased.

I got 4 chairs for my kitchen about 6 weeks ago. I love the look of the chair and they are comfortable to sit in but they are extremely light weight. If you are planning on using them on a rug they will be fine but my kitchen is tile and they slide all over the place. We have had two front legs split on two chairs in the short time we have had them. I would not recommend for everyday use.
The chairs looked awesome and I was very excited for them to arrive. We carefully put them together and then sat on them...one promptly broke and the other one had the screws go loose and got wobbly. I weigh about 150 so weight is not the issue, the poor quality is the issue. I'm returning these and trying to find chair that I'm not terrified to sit on.
When I purchased these chairs I was a little leary because of the price. I wasn't sure what I would get but was extremely satisfied with the quality. I had to put these chairs together but it was very easy and took minimal time. They look as good as a couple chairs I purchased for 4 times the price. They are sturdy and comfortable.

I purchased these chairs to match another pair which I bought in ** ***** a few years ago.. from the picture it appears to be similar but once received the material was not the same.. granted I know these were well priced and stated as "leatherette" so I didn't expect 100% leather.. but I have 3 cats and If they happen to jump on the chair with their claws it felt like they would rip right thru it.. I also tried to put one together just to see if that would help me with deciding to keep it after about 30 minutes trying to just align 1 screw I gave up.. I am a handy woman, therefore I know how to follow directions and pretty good at putting things together, I think they didn't create the holes in the right place.. anyways it didn't work for me for others it just may.. they're not terrible..
I've been looking for 6 replacement chairs for our dinning room table that would be nice looking and inexpensive because we have four children. These are a wonderful addition. The legs are pretty well constructed since I had others that weren't.
These leatherette chairs are extremely lightweight. They may turn out to be very durable but only time will tell. I am a little nervous because once we put them together I was surprised how lightweight they are. I have never had dining chairs this light weight. I have taken the advice of another reviewer and will use them on an area rug as opposed to directly on the hardwood floors. They were sliding all over the place directly on the hardwood floors. They look nice. Next time I will spend a little more and get real leather.
The chairs are very good looking. Unfortunatly, like some reviewers said before they are great to look at , but not so great to use them:(...They are very light, the legs in every chair i have (I got 6), are slightly diffrent so the chairs wobble when you touch them, not so much when you sit on them. The seats are extremly poorly made, and I don't think they last a long time. I just did not have energy to returned them and begin search for new chairs, which would be difficult, because it took a while to put them together in the first place. I don't think I would recommend them to my friends, but they are pretty affordable and if you don't care about quality, go for them!!! but only if you don't weight more than 150 pounds (I'm 120, and still am a little affraid that they won't hold my weight and will give in;)
The chairs were fairly easy to put together but some of the screws were stripped or was not aligned with pre-cut hole and could not get screw in or tighten. The chairs are not sturdy. They wiggle because you have to keep tightening the screws. They are comfortable and good looking. You can find these chairs put together already in a local store.
Come on guys, these chairs look great and the faux leather texture is very good. At this price I've got to go 5-stars. I already had two dark brown faux leather parson chairs from a separate source and wanted to increase the set. These matched well so I ordered two more immediately. There were no obvious defects in these chairs. Assembly will go much better if you oil the long screws first. The screws for the backrest are obviously the hardest ones to align and the instructions are comedy. These chairs are easy to assemble but if this helps anyone then here goes: 1) Tap the dowels into the back of the seat first and start the single short screw into the backrest and leave it loose. This will help hold things in place for the next step. 2) Start one oiled long-screw on to each side of backrest and leave loose. 3) Start remaining long-screws into the backrest and leave loose. 4) Attach front legs and tighten. 5) With chair on the floor with all four legs resting even on surface; tighten all screws into the backrest while chair rests flat. The legs on two of mine were still a bit uneven so I just but 2 felt pads on one front leg and all was well. Additional leveling can be done by loosening one front leg; pulling it down and re-tightening it at new length. 6) Before putting the Velcro fabrics back under the seat, sit in the chair and rock around a bit to get the screws to loosen. Then re-tighten them well and you should be done . . . for a while.
These chairs actually look/feel nicer than many of the other, similar chairs on overstock; however, because they use wooden dowels instead of screws between the seat and chair back, these chairs flex backwards (effectively slide apart somewhat) whenever you lean back-- I'm quite certain they would also fall apart much sooner for the same reason; they also suffer the same uneven legs as most other chairs of this type
This was my first time ordering from overstock.com and I was a little disappointed. The status of my order was not updated consistently, I had to call customer service on a couple different of occasions to receive a status update. When I received the chairs the product quality was good. After assembling three of the four chairs I ordered, I was unable to assemble the final chair because the holes did not line up on the leg. I called customer service to get a replacement leg and after one week had not received any feedback or resolution. I was told the warehouse never responded to the request. Finally, after asking about returning all of the chairs I received an update. Ultimately I received satisfaction, but after much headache. Customer service was quite apologetic. The chairs themselves were a good bargain, but without all the hassle. One helpful hint to anyone who purchases these chairs: others have commented on the need for a drill and that may be true if you discover the holes do not line up so examine all your parts. I did not want to have to manufacture the chairs, just assemble them.
