This lovely wooden arm chair is a refreshing addition to any room in your home. The frame is made of naturally weathered wood. The beige linen with piping accents cover the back, arms and seat, which are 100-percent polyester-filled and comfortable....more
The chair is not ideal for everyday-use. It is a decent accent piece. Mu husband usually has no trouble putting pieces together, however he stated that screws did not fit properly under the chair. He ended up using some of his own screws and drilled them in to the chair. The chair arrived smelling strongly of chemicals. The wood smells bad too. The chair wobbles and my husband worked on correcting the issue, but he was not able to fix it. I believe the issue is with how the wood was cut. All in all, I would NOT compare the quality of this piece to the much finer rustic furniture store's own version. But, they charged an arm an a leg for shipping, so this is worth it to me.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Linen is darker color, wood is very similar to photo

I noted in a few reviews - the people stated the chairs are actually darker than the photos show - but that worked out for me fine - no problem there. I ordered four chairs - and three of them were relatively easy to put together - although, I don't really see how one person could do it - but I guess people have - it took two of us to put them together and I wouldn't exactly say they were a piece of cake - but on the second chair - the seat was too large - so, we kept using a different seat - until we got to chair number 4 - the seat wouldn't fit!
So called the customer service and got ahold of a very nice young lady - and she said someone from the main parts department would call me within five days - they didn't. So on the fifth day I called back - and again got a hold of a very nice young lady and she was again very helpful and someone from the parts department called me within a few hours - and it was an extremely nice young man who was very helpful - come to find out they didn't have a replacement for the seat and had to send a whole chair.
Good thing they did - because after getting the chair we tried to use the back and arms from chair #4 - but the holes in the back did not line up with the holes in the arms - hence the thing wouldn't go together at all - so, used all of the new chair to complete the last chair.
I liked the chairs so much I did order another for a spare - and put it in my bedroom.
I will admit even with the problem with the parts not fitting - everyone I spoke with at Overstock were extremely pleasant and very helpful - I admit I wasn't very thrilled at first when the fourth chair didn't go together - but, the experience over all was extremely pleasant. I look forward to dealing with Overstock in the future - although, I really don't need anymore furniture - although, I thought that before I ordered the dining room chairs too.
Oh out of the five chairs - there were two screws missing and one set of plugs - I recall others saying that they had some missing screws - the most irritating part of assembly was the person who attached the hardware to the frame of the chair got overzealous with the staples - and used what seemed like a zillion of them. One or two would have done the job. Removing all the staples took almost as much time as assembling the chairs.
All-in-all - I love the chairs and that's what counts - and I was impressed by the staff I came in contact with at Overstock - all very personable and friendly - and most of all they got the job done.
I love the chairs, the color and style was great. The only negative thing I have to say is they are extremely hard to put together. Each chair was missing a screw and I could not get one of the arms to match up to put the bolts in. They are beautiful but was disappointed with the assembley. But I would recommend this product.

I bought this chair to go with a new desk in my bedroom. The look and style is exactly what I was looking for. The reviews I read told of a few people who had difficulty assembling the chair. I thought, how hard is it to put a simple chair together? Well, for me, after following the directions, it was impossible to do alone. After attaching the cushion seat, to the base, the arm/leg piece would not fit together. My husband pushed so hard that the piece broke and the interior screw was left exposed. I got my handyman to see if he could make it work and after about an hour, with the help of his son, they finally finished it. I would suggest you put the arms/legs on first then add the cushion to the seat. After it was all done, it would not scoot under my desk as the arms are too high to fit. Since I like the chair and after all the hassle of getting it together, I'm keeping it and just letting it sit at an angle to my desk. I said I'd recommend this to a friend, but with warnings about the height of the arms and the difficulty with assembly.

They have bolts they go through the back part of the chair into the arm next to the back.kharris4313 on Jul 14, 2013
is upholstery beige or, as written in some reviews, brown? The color shown looks very light beige, almost neutral. Can you describe color? Is it light/neutral beige or very dark beige/light brown color. Do this chair ever come in light gray? Also what type of wood the made of? Pine? Birch?bbar1 on Jun 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It is more of a beige,texture is more like a burlap sack (best to describe it) but lighter in color than burlap, so i guess a more darker beige but for sure not a brown. I do not know what kind of wood but it is very sturdy and comfortable.bwuensch on Jun 19, 2013
The fabric is like a khaki color.Birch, very lightweight. These are very pretty with grey brushed on the wood of the chairs.kharris4313 on Jul 14, 2013
