This set of two comfortable wire-base white chairs is perfect for any office or room that requires additional seating. The wire bases are made of chromed steel, so you can rely on these elegant and sturdy chairs to last for years to come....more
These chairs are great, I got a total of 4 for our eating area, plus 2 different red chairs. They look great, and are super comfortable. Several people commented on the assembly of the chairs- it isn't that bad, I put them together while my husband was out. It took about 2 hours, since I was by myself. The chairs do not come with instructions but pretty easy to figure out. If you are having problems with the holes lining up exactly, try only tightening the screws slightly until you have them all in place, making lining up easier, and then fully tighten once all are in place.

I have been a fan of Eames design for many years, but unfortunately the pieces are out of my budget. So when I saw these repros on Overstock for such a low price, I had to jump on the chance. I am quite impressed by the look and feel of these repros -- they really seem like the real deal. Well made with exacting constuction and attention to details, I think they would fool most Eames aficionados. For the price, this is a great way to get the vibe of a modern classic.
These are a reasonable facsimile of the Eames Eiffel Chair. I was almost scared away by how inexpensive they are, but it's a faithful knockoff. The chairs are slightly flexible plastic and have a matte finish. You'll find stiffer, fiberglass versions out there as well and I guess it's a matter of personal preference.
Assembly was very easy. It's true that it takes a little work to line up the base/legs with the pre-drilled holes in the seat, but because the legs are angled you can flex them from the very end and create plenty of leverage without using a lot of force.
The only really cheap part are the plastic disks that sit on the very ends of the legs, against the floor. It ships with extras, presumably because they will break off, pop off etc over time. Overall highly recommended.
these chairs are seriously one of the best things we have ever purchased for the home furnishings.
we purchased six for a banging deal.
they're durable like a tank, they look stunning (as they should, considering they're a major designer rip-off), the price is awesome, they're easy to keep clean, and they're crazy comfortable...they're pretty much everything you'd want to get from a chair.
buy these now. your bottom (and heart) will thank you. :)

After much hesitation I went ahead and bought 4 of these chairs. One of the customers who wrote a reviews was correct in that once you opened the boxes there was a smell of moth balls; however, the smell went away in a few hours. Also, assembly took some time, but it wasn't all that difficult. Overall I am very please at the way these chairs turned out once assembled. They fit perfecty around my round table and the seat height was fine. They look really close to the much more expensive Eames chairs and I am very happy that we bought these reproductions instead b/c we saved a lot of money.

The chairs were easy to put together which worried me after the other reviews that I had read. Evidently someone does not know how to use an allen wrench. One of the black feet for the base was missing. I contacted Overstock and they had it out to my house right a way. Great set of chairs that compliment our retro table.
I recently ordered 4 chairs for my new apt. I liked the design of these chairs, and they are not expensive. I received well the chairs, except that 1 foot cap was missing for 1 chair. After contacting the customer service, they were not willing to send me the missing piece, for the reason that it was not explicitly listed in the item description on the website. In fact, the item description do not list anything except that there is 2 chairs in the box! Moreover the picture associated with the item description show clearly that the black foot caps are part of the chairs. Without the foot cap, the chair is not usable as it is because the foot of the chair is an iron point (not good for the floor). The foot cap is a cheap piece, so I will look into stores to buy it myself, but what a bad experience with customer service!
Otherwise, the chairs looks great, they are comfy, and good looking. The material is not the best but it is ok.
I think the assembly design could have been ameliorated, because the hole on the seats do not match with the holes of the metallic legs, so you have to put a lot of force to screw everything together.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is was I expected. It is not a glossy white.

These dining chairs suit our purpose just fine. We purchased six (three sets of two), and will purchase one more set once we move into our new space and have a larger dining table. The poly seats do have flex (as opposed to similarly styled rigid fiberglass classics) which is both a good and a bad thing. It is good in that it makes them more comfortable when you are sitting in them. It is bad in that our toddler grabs the back to try to pull herself into the chair and the flex throws her off balance--but she is getting better at it already. By three, she should master it. Also, because the base is set into a narrower mount than the wood style ones we've looked at, they can tip, say, when a toddler is climbing into one. So, for now, we'll just lift her in and out. Other than those cautions, they are great little chairs with good looks at an inexpensive price. They are easy to clean, and the white plastic hasn't stained at all in spite of having tomato sauce and red wine sit on them for varying periods of time (even after a couple of days), which kind of surprised me a bit. They are super comfortable and definitely lend themselves to long, lingering meals with friends and family, which was important to us. So a win, win so far. Time will tell how they hold up, but if they break at least they are inexpensively replaced--important details with a little one using them as props for her imaginitive play.
On an assembly note: one of our sets came with parts missing. But another came with double sets of the parts missing from the other, so it worked out for us. There were two hiccups in the assembly: one was trying to separate the two wire bases that were somewhat wedged together (hubby strongarmed that one) and the other was getting everything to line up in order to screw in the bolts. Because they are designed to have some tension in the frames, you have to screw a little bit of each one at a time (think tire changing--best done in an X pattern) to ease the process as much as possible. The black floor pad things were a bit uneven, but we just put the felt pads from the packaging on them with a little dab of glue and now they are more even and slide nicely on the floor.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality what I would expect from a 60ish dollar dining chair
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good description; Reviews were even more accurate on the details
these look just like the other white wire chairs sold here on overstock, however the hardware is different and its missing the spacers. if i could have ordered 2 more of the other white wire chairs that would have been my preference. these chairs are good looking but they do tip over very easy, especially if you have children getting up and down from them.

I am considering getting these but wanted to know what material is the chair made of. I see the legs are wood but what is the chair made of? In the event that I need to touch up a scratch or something. Are they painted wood? Plastic? Metal.elisafra on Nov 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Not sure the official weight rating, but I'm 150, my husband is 190, our daughter is 35 and our dog is 20. We can all sit in one at the same time (done regularly in our household).winelifestyle on May 2, 2013
Looking to buy replacement casters for the legs of this chair.
Casters are black and fit on end of each leg.

Unfortunately we do not carry replacement casters. Your local hardware store would likely be your best bet.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 7, 2012
