I am SO THRILLED WITH THESE CHAIRS!!!! Especially because I was about to pay $250 a piece for the same chairs at Crate and Barrell (Oyster Folio Leather Chairs in the Ash color) and they wouldn't have arrived for 10-12 weeks since they were coming from overseas!!!! These chairs are identical and I saved about $600 since I needed to order 4 chairs. Best find ever!!!
The chairs are of decent quality and construction. I would have preferred a "Made in America" product, but these are smart looking and of clean design. The leather upholstered legs are a plus ... they really enhance the chairs. The chairs are light weight and easy to move around. The shipping was speedy -- in less than a week, though the boxes looked like they had been thrown around by the airport gorilla. All in all, very pleased with the purchase, and would buy again.

Ordered four of these chairs to go with a Crate and Barrel glass and Stainless parsons table. While the chairs are very stylish and the medium gray color perfect, they are very frustrating to assemble as the screw holes do not line up.. My husband was able to successfully finagle a fix using smaller screws and those plastic sheaths used in wall board. Reading other reviews most people called them easy to assemble. Not our experience, but once the pain passed we like the chairs.
The chairs are great once they are put together. I ordered 6 for Thanksgiving and I left it too late cause 2 of these chairs are not working out. The screws do not line up on most of these chairs and it takes a lot to screw them in. My husband was able to put together 4 chairs but 2 have to go as they JUST do not line up, a long shot from lining up. Its so frustrating cause they are here but what do you do when you have paid for the product. My husband feels that we will have to check on the screws once a month unless we can fuse them together somehow. So slightly disappointed but the look is good.
Love, love, love these chairs. They are well made and perfect around toddlers as they simply wipe clean. My only warning surrounds the assembly. The hardware, specifically the screws, arrive with some sort of lubrication on them and without wiping them thoroughly prior to installation, the oil may transfer to the chairs, as it did for us. We were able to wipe it clean, but it was a hassle and can easily be avoided with a good wipe down beforehand. Also, I found the chairs to be a bit darker than what you see online, but they are definitely gray as opposed to "taupe" as some others reviewers describe.
I bought these for my son, knowing that they had to be put together. I read favorable reviews from people so I purchased. When they arrived he said they were flimsy and not made well at all. The bonded leather is velcroed together. So returning them.

Great chairs for the $. They look like something purchased at Crate and Barrel but, way less. Very easy assembly. They make a great desk or side chair.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? They are not a slate gray..more of a putty slightly greenish gray.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. leather seems very durable, legs are nicely stiched.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? right on
Love these chairs. Initially I had a tough time figuring out how to assemble. I called customer service via phone. The customer service rep was the best. Very helpful. I finally figured out how to match up the holes to place the screws. It took a little muscle and common sense to figure out but once I did I had no problem assembling all six chairs. They are exactly as advertised. The color was correct and the product is superior quality.
