Here's my slightly different take, my one caveat that--quite possibly--only a relative few people will even care about. But if you or any members of your family have a chemical sensitivity, I would avoid these chairs. These chairs are attractive, easy to assemble, stylish, and very reasonably priced--but they reek of "petrochemicals" One reviewer wrote something about unpackaging the chairs and being greeted with the smell of leather. Well, one will be greeted with a smell, but it will be a chemical effluvium--some combination of polyvinylchloride and formaldehyde (or something akin to that). I had to set the chairs out on the balcony for a few days so as to let some of that petro-cloud bleed off into the atmosphere. But months later, I've decided that I must give these chairs to Goodwill, because when I sit in them. my eyes begin to run, and my contacts, in turn, begin to cloud over from the allergic reaction.

I was very happy to receive the chairs they were easy to assemble with a little pressure to get the holes to match up. My only issue with these was the way they were packed. I received 2 of my 6 chairs damaged which the Overstock team quickly worked to resolve and their customer service was excellent. In the end the team was able to locate replacement chairs for the damaged ones (which originally it looked like they were out of stock). The issues with the chairs did discourage me at all and I'm very pleased with the chairs now.

My husband is 6'8" and my son is 6'4", we also have a toddler running around. Not only can these chairs support the men of the family, but when my toddler wipes her berry fingers on one of them, they are super easy to clean. IT PLEASES MOM, because they are cool, and multifunctional and if my design changes through the years they are a timeless piece. You just can't beat this price and design. I love it.

The look is wonderful and the price can't be beat! I ordered 8 chairs and was able to put them together fairly easily. 2 chairs needed a little more "finessing" and I almost gave up. I had actally reported the issue to overstock and decided to give it another try. Success!! The holes aren't exactly aligned and the allen wrench could be better, but with a little muscling, they want together and look amazing! Came back to order 4 more and they are out of stock. I'll happily wait!
Our chairs looked like they had been previous returns based on the packaging. Holes did not line up and there are marks in the leather. We were able to get 1 of the 4 assembled and they seem pretty comfy which is why I am giving them 3 stars. I now have to deal with the hassle of returning these.
We loved the look of these chairs so ordered 4. When they arrived only two could be assembled; the drill holes in the legs did not line up with the drill holes in the seat section. Customer service arranged to pick up two and sent two new ones. Well, they did not line up either. Finally, the next replacement order allowed us to assemble two more chairs to complete the set. Customer Service was terrific but clearly the supplier and Overstock did not do any sort of QA check. We had have 8 chairs shipped to get 4. If I order again from Overstock; I will only order items that are fully assembled. This was a frustrating nightmare.
The boxes came very damaged, you could see into them. The styrafoam that surrounded the chairs disintegrated on touch. One chair was damaged. The bad that contained the hardware was empty, but luckily the screws were in the box. :( Velcro holds the leather to the frame -- hope this holds They were easy to assemble, though.

Seen chairs almost identical in color and style at Crate & Barrel. These were almost half the price. These are an even better deal because shipping was free and super fast to my door!
