The chair looks very much like a very popular chair that is much more expensive. The major difference is the quality of the tufting and upholstery. The chair looks tufted with the buttons, but it is actually mostly an illusion and quite flat, rather that puffy , pillow- like tufts. The fabric is very beautiful in appearance and very soft and smooth, but it is not a strong of durable fabric. The seat cushion leaves something to be desired. The foam seems very thin and not as firm as it should be, which means you can feel the wood frame, especially in the front of the chair under your legs. It's not perfect. I put a foam seat cushion on and it makes it much more comfortable, but does not look good. I debated returning for two reasons. One, there are some imperfections in the fabric (looks like some velcro got stuck on it and left it fuzzy, the seat feels too thin and it could use thicker better quality foam, and it sits a little lower than I would like as a result. I plan to use the chair as a desk chair and because it sits so low I needed to purchase an under the table keyboard and mouse tray to compensate for the height of my previous adjustable desk chair. Although it is beautiful, it will not last as look as the one it was designed to look like. If you can affords the original it is a much higher quality chair. I kept it because- well, it is so pretty ad the price is right for what it is. Like many items on overstock it is more about style than quality, but nonetheless it is a very nice chair. With the new keyboard under the desk the ergonomics should improve and I'll be able to sit comfortably enough on this very attractive chair at my desk.
This chair is even better in person. Overstock shipping was FAST! We ordered two for end chairs on our large dining room table and I couldn't be happier. Definitely a good purchase!

Overall I am very happy with my first Overstock.com purchase. I had been searching for chairs with a lighter wood colour for the legs and it was proving to be quite difficult, unless I was willing to pay a fortune. I was actually about to purchase these chairs from another site, but thought I would check Overstock quickly to compare prices. They were on sale at overstock and ended up costing about $*** or so less on my entire order! The chairs were shipped quickly and were packaged well. The chairs came fully assembled which was a bonus and with a coverlet over them which I saved away for when we move to protect them. We have only had the chairs for about a week so I can't comment on their durability or how they hold up over extended use. But so far they are comfortable and fit our table perfectly. Another reviewer commented that the fabric kind of balled up, and I can see that happening easily with these chairs. All in all the product matches both the photo and description provided online (though I think they have been mislabelled as the Becca Chair instead of the Alexia chair). We are very satisfied with our purchase and would recommend both the chairs and Overstock.com.
I loved these chairs online, but when I got them they were disappointingly small. I thought they would be so much bigger! They barely could be seen over my dining table and were about the size of a regular dining chair. I was hoping they would make more of a statement on the ends of my dining table, but I will be sending them back and choosing bigger ones. They are beautiful chairs, but just way too small.
This is a perfectly sized chair for a smaller space. They arrived very quickly, well packaged without any damage. We purchased two chairs to be used as occasional chairs and they work very well. Their small scale would not work with a standard dining table or really large people so make sure of your requirements! Although the design is simple, it is high quality. However, since the fabric is slightly rough (not slick) it attracts one of our cats to use her claws inappropriately!
We bought 2 of these chairs to combine them with a new Restoration Hardware table in oak and our very modern italian chairs with metal legs.These 2 chairs are now the headchairs on opposite sites and beside matching the color & style of the table ,they truly make a statement. The overall combination is like the one you see in the magazines, a mix of modern and rustic&traditional. the chairs are beautiful, sturdy and well refined,definitely a good purchase!

Love this chair. Beautiful and very comfortable. I work from home so I will be sitting in it all the time, so comfort was really important when selecting a desk chair. My apartment is very tiny, so the "office area" is in the main room. The chair helps blend the office area with the rest of the living space, matching my chic/elegant/romantic theme. Very happy with this purchase!

The description is wrong. This chair is actually Safavieh Alexia Dining Chair in Beige Linen - MCR4502L This is a great chair. I already own six of the Becca chairs and I thought I woild try the Alexa. The quality is great. I love it. I would consider ordering more once they get it back in stock.
