I bought this chair because I was looking for a tall wingback dining chair to reupholster. The chair is dramatic in shape and you can't beat the price! All dining chairs are so boring and cookie cutter but this chair is very striking. I just need to reupholster to a bright fabric to really make an impact in my dining room. IF you are buying this chair without the intent of reupholstering I can say BEWARE! The fabric is cheap velvet like it has lots of indents that you can't get out. Also strangely my chair had streaks of crushed velvet all over it...like a bad vacuum leaving stripes marks on the carpet? Well these stripes on the fabric seem permanent. If I was not reupholstering I would definitely send these back no matter how pain in the butt that would be.

I bought this chair to use in my office (it looks great), it is not as firm in the seat as I had expected, but is comfortable. My husband is not a big fan because the he thinks the back is too small (he is 6'2" and found that his shoulders barely fit between the wings of the chair). I don't know that I would use it for every chair in my dining room because of my husbands complaint, but it is a beautiful chair, comes fully assembled and is quite cozy. My only concern is that the cushion on the seat feels like over time it may begin to sag...
I was surprised by the many positive reviews for this item of furniture. I was very disappointed but only because I have purchased so many wonderful items of furniture through Overstock.com This was definitely not one of them. The dimensions of the chair are much too tight fr an average sized person and impossuible for a large or tall person. The crushed velvet is attractive but cheap and fades quickly with time. I suspect most people who gave positive reviews made the review right after receiving the furniture instead of trying it out for a while. It frays pretty quickly. It almost looks like a stage prop it is so cheap. Might be good for a casual country home but you would not want this in a formal dining room where it is actually used
This chair is very stylish and has great scale. The fabric however is very poor...previous reviewers were correct. The two chairs I ordered had several lines and worn marks on the fabric. As much as I love how they look, the fabric is already worn out.
I bought 2 of these chairs a couple of years ago for my main family living area. It took me a while to finally buy them because I was concerned that my three (now 4) small children would destroy the velvet, but they were just so pretty. I'm happy to say that these chairs have held up very well. The fabric has a beautiful, natural sheen to it. I've had to spot clean them and I've been surprised how well I've been able to clean them up. They are very well constructed and were delivered quickly and safely.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close representation
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very high quality
Loved the design of the chair. Found the fabric looked flawed and the firmness of the back and seat could be harder. I would not put the chair where it was used alot.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? color was lighter than expected but worked out very well
- How is the quality of the product? quality of fabric could be better and the firmness could be harder
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
These chairs are stunning! I bought these chairs to update my dining room table and what a statement they make. They are beautiful and are an excellent value. I have been looking for over a year for chairs that fit with transitional decor and these definitely work. I am very pleased with my purchase.
You get what u pay for. I ordered 12 chairs. 2 were severly damaged (one had a rip in the fabric n the other at a big chip taking off one if the legs. 9 chairs had chips in the legs. I had to use furniture paint to touch them all up. I still rated them an average review because they were 1/2 the price of the store. I'm extremely picky, my husband wasn't as upset. But I feel if u buy new furniture it should be new. The legs looked used. However these are stored is BAD. Overstock was great. They sent out two new chairs to replace the damaged ones the next day.
I ordered 2 of these chairs for my dining room table and the color of each chair is completely different! One is more bronze (pinkish) and the other tan. It is a significant difference. I would return them but with Overstock's large item return policy its not worth the hassle. Style/design of the chair is appealing. Seating is comfortable and velvet material is soft to the touch. If you are just ordering one, I say go for it. Need more then one, don't risk it.
Ordered two of these chairs for the ends of the dining room table. They have the perfect and intended effect in the room decor. Not certain about the durability of the fabric, for frequent use. Use them more for decor, than actual frequent use. The add a dramatic presence to the room. They tend to be too firm for lingered sitting, but they serve the intended purpose.
We needed a smaller accent chair for our living room and this is a perfect addition to our decor! Plus it`s comfy too! We`ve had many compliments on the overall style of the chair and it would also be perfect as a captain chair at your dining room table! Overstock.com has never disappointed us on the numerous items we have ordered from them, i`d recommend their web site to anyone interested in stylish and reasonably priced merchandise!!
The chair definitely has a lot of style and it is comfy enough. And for a seldom used bedroom that I got it for it is fine. But the upholstery is not very good quality so for frequent use you will probably want to have the chairs recovered with some additional padding.
