Paired these with an antique round table (Lexington Abingdon 74"). Bought 8 chairs. The store from where these are sold lists each chair for $395 a chair. The only thing that would improve the chair is a longer length from torso to knee, but no big deal since the tradeoff is the chairs are light and easy to move around...and "hand carved" is a great plus. Painted dining room Ben Moore "etiquette", installed a crystal chandelier and ceiling to floor sheer window treatments and the whole room is just stunning!
Nice quality, very sturdy, attractive chairs. Cream colored distressed paint (photo looks slightly gold, but the finish is a more rustic-looking distressed finish- cream paint & natural wood showing in places.) The seat is strangely shallow, as noted by another reviewer. It seems a bit unnatural - not quite the normal dimensions of a standard dining chair. The dimensions are actually 21 wide, 18 deep, 37 high. Also the seat is pretty stiff to sit on, but hopefully will soften a bit with use. Overall, quite happy with these chairs - they look lovely at a dining table and seem like they will last forever. One arrived broken and was quickly replaced. Price is good. Wish they would offer the arm-chair version of these chairs on Overstock - they are available from the manufacturer but are just too expensive ($600 each!)
Pretty chair. They are light and easy to move around. I agree with the other review in that they are slightly short from hip to knee. This is the only negative that I can find. Otherwise, the padding is comfortable. The carving on the chair is well done. The chair is neutral, and will go with anything.
The chairs are very pretty although I felt the gap in the edging took away from the quality. The problem is that they are very short and do not give a dynamic look in my dining room. The would be good for a small dining table, even in the kitchen. If you want a grand look, these are not the chairs.

I had been obsessing about replacing my old dining room chairs for years. I took a gamble on these chairs (ordered 2 at first) and was delighted with them when they arrived. I am very very fussy and there is nothing I would change about them and, obviously, the price is right. (Additionally I had been planning on replacing the fabric with my own but the light beige fabric they came with couldn't be nicer.)

I bought these chairs to go with a writing desk used as a vanity. I did not want 2 but they came as a pair. Now I am glad I have the second one, as it looks great beside the dresser. Definately a good value. The fabric is substantial and the wood frame is solid.

I think the chairs are wonderful to be used in a kitchen area. My dining room is not large by any stretch of the imagination nor is my dining table. These chairs give a very small appearance. I felt as though they were lost in what is not a very large room. I was very disappointed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color was close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the chairs are nice but they are not for a dining room. They are too small to be considered for a dining room. They would make wonderful kitchen chairs. If you have a separate kitchen area and want really nice chairs these are for you. Not substantial enough for a dining room.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It doesnt accurately describe the small appearance of these chairs. Even though I checked the measurements before ordering I still didnt think they would look so small.
It was hard finding exactly what I wanted. But these chairs are IT; study, attractive, true to how they were advertised. No assembly required. The size is just right; fits in a small space in my bedroom. Very comfortable.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A perfect match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is everything I thought it would be and more.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Right on.
The chairs are very well made, arrived quickly, and were packed very well. We bought an expensive dining room table, these chairs were great for the price-they look expensive too. Would also be nice as a desk or dressing table chair.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good.

I absolutely loved these chairs but unfortunately had to return them because of their size. I purchased them to add to four other chairs as part of my dining room set but the other chairs overpowered them in height and in width. They were just too small and looked odd. These chairs would look lovely in a young girl's room or in a smaller sitting area. The quality is good and they look very rich.

These both classy and classic chairs look like very expensive French provincial antique shop finds! The upholstery fabric is a gorgeous taupe color that blends with everything, the frame is beautifully hand carved and painted a lovely distressed white, and the seats are wide, firm and comfortable. A tremendous value for the price!
I was really worried about the height of the chairs due to a lot of the previous reviews, but they are the perfect size! The seat and back color is a little more beige than in the picture, I do wish that the beige was a little lighter, but I'm still happy! I'm going to take the advice of another reviewer and paint some of the wood detail a light gold to add a regal look to the chairs. I highly recommend them!
The Safavieh Provence Antiqued French Side Chairs had the look I wanted. They look great in my dining room. However, the seats are way too soft and feel like they do not have enough support. The seat is also too short from front to back. An average sized person would find it difficult to sit on the seat for very long. These chairs will work fine if you are just going for the French look and not comfort.
I love these chairs - and have been "pining over them" for some time now. I do think they are over priced for what they are because they are smaller than I expected. They had a strong chemical smell to them so I would recommend airing them out. They are beautiful and the quality is good. I just think they are a little over priced for what they are.
I saw these chairs at a shop and liked them instantly as they go with the theme in my foyer. When i came home i checked overstock and found them here for a much better price and so I purchased it online. It came very quickly and are very nice/elegant looking chairs. I use them as extra dinning chairs when we have visitors over and they are comfortable to sit on for long periods of time.
The chairs look beautiful in the picture and from a distance. But the seat is not deep enough. The proportion doesn't look right to me. My daughter likes the wood carving and the style. The price was unbeatable by then. So we keep them.
