I love the look of this chair online, but in person you find that the stripes are actually painted on the fabric, making it look/feel a bit cheap. There were multiple small drip marks on my 2 chairs. One chair appears to be well made otherwise, but the second chair came with dirt smudges on it and the fabric is not secured tightly. Every time it is sat on, the seat is wrinkly and I have to tuck the excess into the crease to smooth it. I don't entirely regret the purchase b/c I do like the look from a distance, but if I had known these things, I probably would not have bought them.
I really like the look of this chair. It arrived fully assembled and well packaged. Still there was a small dent and scrape in one of the legs. I solved the problem with a black marker. Fixed! Still, be aware that you get the quality you pay for. The fabric is a nice weave, with the stripes dyed, not woven. The tacks holding the upholstery are small and cheap looking, but the overall look is good. We are using it as a side chair in the bedroom. It would be nice in the dining room, but I question how it would wear under heavy use.

These are great looking and comforatable chairs! The only reason I gave 4 stars is because in my initial delivery one chair came damaged. But customer service was very helpful and sent a replacement right away. Everytime I have guests over for dinner the first thing they compliment me on is my chairs!!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The written description was better than the picture. The contrasting stripe is not white, it's more or a natural linen color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality.

I ordered one dining chair to review before making a larger purchase of additional chairs for my dining room. Although I like the looks of the chair, upon close inspection, it is poorly made of inferior material. The fabric itself is not a woven design, as pointed out with other reviews. Over time, I assume that the stripes will wear out. The cushion foam is not quality and the back form is made from cardboard. I had several people of different sizes sit on the chair to judge the comfort and all said it was o.k. for a few minutes but not after time. Not a chair to sit in and linger after a meal, which is what I am aiming for. The other feature that would be uncomfortable is the height of the chair back. It really needs a few more inches of height to hit above the shoulders of most people, so you would have the support for leaning back after Thanksgiving dinner and continuing all those family discussions. Over all, the chair is attractive to look at from a distance but not one I would purchase again or recommend. I have researched similar chairs on other sites and Overstock has the best price by a few dollars. For my own investment, I would rather spend more money on a quality product that will last for decades and not end up in a land fill in a few years. I've decided to spend almost twice the cost of this chair for custom chairs made in North Carolina where the material used is known and the workmanship is of the highest standards and paid for.
Comfortable, attractive and flexible. I am using as additional living room seating, with a drop leaf table for meals and as a desk chair. Could be in a bedroom. My only reason for 4 vs. 5 stars is that the nail heads are not as I expected. I anticipated a rounded nail head. It's like a traditional nail perhaps even from a nail gun.
Great dining chairs- we purchased 6 to go with a farm table for our dining room and couldn't be happier. This chair feels high quality and is very sturdy. My husband is 6'4 and he fits into the chair well, not cramped. Some reviewers mentioned that there was an issue with the fabric when you order multiples, but all of ours were perfect.
Started out ordering one to see if we liked it in person. We loved it, but it was stained. OS customer service had us return it......at no cost to us and sent a new one out at the time of the phone call. We went ahead and ordered 6 and the bottom line is that 3 were perfect and 3 were marked/smudged/ dirty finger printed. We're going to keep them and take care of the marks ourselves cause --too much trouble to return 3 and they really are very cool looking and pretty comfortable too.
