The chair looks as beautiful in person, as it does in the photo. The width of the chair is actually 22 inches (not 26 inches, as the website says). As for seating area dimension, it is 17.5 inches deep (where chair back meets the seat to the edge of the seat). The seat cushion is quite firm, which I like in a dining chair. There were a few minor dents and scratches on the wooden legs, but not enough to make me exchange them.
I purchased this chair about two years ago for my high school aged daughter's desk. It looked great. She loved it - maybe too much! She sat in that chair and studied for hours and hours. Good news for her college applications, but not for the chair. The linen wore through at all the edges, and I don't mean a little. The foam is completely exposed now at the front edge of the chair, and there are little rips along the "arm" edges. Also, whenever she sat in it with wet hair, it left water marks on the fabric that were IMPOSSIBLE to clean (I treated the fabric with Scotchguard when I got it, but that didn't help). She did rave about how comfortable it was, though, so if you are not going to give it a daily workout, it is a nice, stylish chair.

This is a very well made chair. My only beef is that the fabric on the seat is not tight and puckered after I got up from the chair the very first time I sat on it. Seems like i could fix it somehow, but it is a little irritating. The fabric is tight and well upholstered everywhere else. The color is a cool linen color, definitely not a warm buff, bone or creme color. Cooler oatmeal linen, I would say.
I was expecting more of an off-white, when the listing has it as beige, but it turned out to be a light grey. Still works for me though. But FYI! Nice, sturdy, came assembled. I love it. Had it for 2 days. It is linen, so cleaning will be standard, I'm sure, so I got the accidental coverage.

the bulky chair at my desk was dating the room. this chair not only fits the proportion better, but it actually is more comfortable....so classy and neat looking. the nailheads in the back make this chair attractive from any angle. the upholstery will match just about any color scheme. the packaging well protects the chair and it arrived in perfect condition and in a very timely fashion. used it immediately and am thrilled with the "upgrade". The linen fabic seat does wrinkle a bit, but just tuck in at the sides and it's fine..

I ordered 2 chairs for the Heads of my dining table I think they are beautiful I can understand some of the other reviews saying they are a small chair because they are but it has the dimensions listed so I would think you should read the info before you buy, I happen to have a small dining room so it fits well for me.I would highly recommend.
This chair is of decent quality but NOT at the price they're asking. The chair color is actually grey, not beige. WHen you sit in it you can tell that the fabric is of poor quality and the cushions made some noise. A leg broke came off as I was moving it around my dining room. Overall, it looks beautiful (if you are going for grey) but I returned all 4 because I could pay another $$$ and get much better quality chairs.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. This chair is amazing. It's sturdy with great quality fabric. The shape and color are very attractive, and the nailheads are a classy added touch. It came fully assembled without a spot or scratch. I am using it in my home office and it fits my ** desk beautifully. Just noticed they are twenty dollars cheaper and wish I had the room for a full set in my dining room. I would love, love, love to have more. Don't pass up on this amazing deal for a beautiful piece of furniture.
I purchased these chairs for a dining and living room. I am using four chairs for the dining table and two for accent furniture. They chairs are a little low. But overall...a beautiful addition to our new room. I am looking forward to having our first dinner party.
This chair is perfect! I have a hard time buying any furniture online, you just never know. And some reviews on this chair scared me, but I wanted to share that those fears were not justified! Shipping was fast. The chair came put together already - no assembly at all. The chair is insanely comfortable, and looks great. I saw some reviews mentioning that it looks "gray" - I disagree. I think it looks exactly as described, beige. It is a great chair and I am SO glad I ordered it!
Comfort is the style at my house. I want my guests to walk in and be anxious to sit down, and I want to be assured that if it takes us for or five hours to sit there and solve the problems of the world, they're in good shape. These chairs are a remarkable value to that end. It's never about just having dinner. Each chair arrived in it's own separate box, no installation at all. The color is the closest match (a true flecked linen, but a bit darker than shown) to my other beige/gray background colors. The fabric is tightly woven and just stretchy enough to make smooth corners, curved or straight. The bright silver nailheads are all set individually and provide a bright pop to the mood of the chair. The overall impression is that this is a very well made chair. When I sat in it I was a little surprised at how firm it is. However I've seen my friends buy new soft chairs, but two years later the seats are sunken and miserable to sit on. Actually, this Safavieh chair's firmness includes good lumbar support. The dining room is not going to be the busiest room in my house . . . kids are grown and gone. But I want a nice place to congregate when friends come. This is going to be fun. By the way, the little low arms on this chair don't feel so weird as I thought they would. It's a silly style that won't last long, but it actually allows you to spread out a little.
I bought this chair in May 2012 and needed to exchange it because of a defect. The exchange was prompt. However, the quality of the replacement is poor. The fabric on the seat became undone after a year or so, such that the sponge cushion has been visible for months. The seat needs to be re-upholstered. I expect better from Overstock.
I bought this chair as an office desk chair and love it. It works very well with my decor and is comfortable as well. I'm not sure about the comfort for heavier people as I am a 128 lb woman, but I've had no problems with sagging, etc. The color of this chair is a little more in the grey hues for natural linen, which I took into account when reading other reviews but worked perfectly for me. I would definitely recommend this chair as an office chair or even casual "breakfast room type" dining chair.
