For months I had considered breaking down and buying the parsons chair with slipcovers in cardinal red from a very top rated furniture catalog. A friend had received them as a gift and I immediately fell in love with their classic style, but not with the price!
Well, this chair is so much more elegant! I had borrowed one of the PB chairs from my friend to use it as a measurement guide. I compared it to this chair. These red chairs measured only 3 inches larger in depth. They are absolutely beautiful!
READ the directions when assembling - the first one takes a while but you are on a roll after that. I also had trouble with some front legs being uneven after I assembled the chair. It was not the legs themselves. They were all the same length. However, it seemed there needed to be more padding in the part where the chair leg was inserted into the underside of the seat piece. I folded up a small piece of the material in which the legs were wrapped - sort of like the styrofoam sheet dividers in "china luggage" and angled my screws slightly. Awesome - you will not regret buying these chairs - you will want to show them off and tell every one the great deal you got on them. $2.95 shipping - no one can beat that - WOW! I saved about 800.00 buying these and got an even better look! These can even be slip covered for different seasons if you prefer - but I love this color - the box says cranberry - it is like a ruby red or a claret - very subtle, but elegant and striking at the same time.
I am delighted with my new chairs. They were easy to put together. They are elegant and match perfectly with the little esspresso dining table I bought earlier. I love the rich red. The combination of dark wood with the rich red fabric creates an elegant and simple dining area for a small space. I give them a two thumbs up!
This was first purchase from Overstock.com and I was NOT disappointed. I absolutely LOVE the chairs, they arrived quickly, in great condition and were very easy for my husband to assemble. The reviews stating that the color was not as "red" as the picture were right on - I was hoping this was the case b/c I actually wanted more of a cranberry color. They were exactly what I wanted and I am thrilled! They are also comfortable and look to be the same quality as more expensive chairs that I have priced. I was really happy b/c like I said this was my first purchase with them and I've had some bad experiences ordering online from other companies. I couldn't believe how smoothly everything went! Then, it looked like we were missing one of the legs and I thought, ok, here we go, I knew it couldn't be that easy- they're going to say that's my problem, make me return the chairs to ship me completely new ones or something equally idiotic. I called them and they had a new leg sent to me right then and there, no questions asked! As it turned out, we found the "missing" leg taped to the bottom of one of the chairs, so it was totally MY bad. Overstock is my new favorite company and I just placed my next order for a sectional with them. My experience with customer service has been terrific and I joined the club for free shipping and to earn points on my purchases! You can't beat it!
These chairs add a richness and bring color to my living room! Currently being used with my corner desk these 2 chairs will accompany a small side table to create extra seating.
Happy with my purchase!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on site looks like a deeper red... in actuality these chairs are a pretty cherry red. The legs are a light Espresso.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality of the product is fair... but good for the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was right-on
I love these chairs. I was nervous about the color, because reds can vary so much in color. They matched my dining room perfectly!! They are a rich cranberry and look very elegant. I originally ordered 6. After I received those, I ordered 2 more.
I love the coloring and design of these chairs. The price is unbeatable and it was wonderful to have them delivered to my door. The only reason I am not rating them as excellent is because one of the chairs seems just a hair wobbly. My husband tried tightening them as much as possible yet it still doesn't feel as sturdy as the others. We use it all the time and I'm sure guests wouldn't notice but I do. Otherwise they are an excellent value when chairs like this can easily cost up to $150 -200 each.
These chairs are beautiful colr red is what I wanted not a bright red. I ordered four and both sets were apparently returns because they came with the hardware missing and the little there were scattered in the box. Customer service great and I received the missing hardware. the written directions are terrible but it was easy to figure this out 3 different sets of screws, flat washers, locking washers, allen wrench. I am a middle aged woman with arthritis and I managed to put these together in an hour, really easy. The material is faux suede and they are beautiful with my mahogany dining room suite. Gave stars because of the hardware issue otherwise these are a 5.
I love the chairs but they were a little difficult to assemble because the allen wrench was difficult to use and when I tightened one bolt, another would loosen. Managed to tighten everything again and seems fine now.
Style was fine, just like the photo. What they don't tell you is that it is made in China...not easy assembly either. Chairs arrived in a box with the hardware randomly all over the cushions, which were suppose to be in the red bag. Most of the hardware bags(red little bags) were not even taped/stapled shut so the washers and o'rings and screws were flying around with the cushions. Note the washers etc. are full of grease to prevent rusting so having them flying around the clear bag the cushion is in was not Kosher due to staining.! So when they arrived the hardware was all over the place and they are metric so you can't go to the local hardware store to replace the ones that are missing from the package !!! A total nightmare. Luckily my husband can get them from a distributor but you can't just buy one you have to buy 25??? Then there are dowell pins sticking out the back of the seat, that are suppose to fit into the back part of the chair. Well most of them were missing or broken off...so no support to hold the back on the chair. Then once you put the chair together (attaching the back to the seat and then putting the legs on) you find out that 3 of the legs are different sizes. So you put the chair together and find out it doesn't sit straight on the floor, it wabbles because all the legs are different sizes. I would NOT RECOMMEND that you buy these- even though the price is right....my husband wanted to kill me after putting the 2nd one together..he said they are nothing but CHINESE CRAP ! I have to agree, once he finished I noticed the fabric ripples - because once you attach the back to the seat the fabric jams up in the crease and looks ridiculous.. I AM SO SORRY I BOUGHT CHINESE CRAP...THEY'LL DO FOR A YEAR, IF THEY EVEN LAST THAT LONG BUT NEVER EVER AGAIN WILL I BUY CRAP MADE IN CHINA...THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT THAT ON THE SITE WHEN I RESEARCHED IT.......TOTAL GARBAGE, IN A YEAR THEY WILL GO IN THE GARBAGE LIKE ALL THE OTHER CHINESE CRAP THIS COUNTRY BUYS ! THESE CHAIRS SUCK IN PLAIN ENGLISH...SUPPORT THE USA LIKE I WILL IN THE FUTURE....NEVER EVER AGAIN - - - -
