These are wonderful outdoor rocking chairs. My husband and I looked for months, both on-line and at local stores, so I can confidently say that these chairs are a bargain at the price offered by Overstock. They have a very smart, chic design; are beautifully stained to look like weathered wood; extremely comfortable; and look to be quite durable. We saw these chairs on other sites, but Overstock had the best price. I ordered four chairs on a Sunday evening and was delighted that they arrived only 3 days later (yesterday). They were well packaged & although there were holes in the packaging, the chairs were fine. That being said: it takes two people and a little patience to assemble these chairs. The directions are not helpful at all, although it's not difficult to figure out what goes where, if you use your head. All the holes for the screws must be perfectly aligned or you will have problems getting all the screws, nuts & bolts in place. I solved the problem by running long thin screws through all the holes to loosely "pre-assemble" the chair, then removing these long screws one by one, as I replaced each with the hardware supplied by the manufacturer. We just put them out today and already a friend who dropped by wanted to know where we got them and how much they cost. He is thinking of ordering two for himself. I'm just sorry they aren't part of a set w/ a cocktail table!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The actual color is much nicer than the on-site image. It is a beautiful, weathered gray that looks like old aged cedar.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality. Smart, chic design, extremely comfortable and very durable wood.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
These chairs were a little difficult to put together, but the end result is great. We love the style, and while they are not the most comfortable, they aren't uncomfortable- and a nice cushion might help in that aspect ( but they don't rock smoothly). We love the style and color and get lots of compliments on them. The price is also right!
