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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? They are what you see
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The edging around the chair was not connected. There is a gap in the front.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very Accurate.
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.)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Just right

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.
Based on the comments I would love 6 of these chairs, except my husband is 6"3" with long legs as have most of the other males we entertain. Do you think they'd be two short between the hip and the knees? Also, the fabric looks to be light grey in the photo. Can I get that color or are they a standard beige only? Can you send me a better picture of their true color?lwilliams on May 1, 2015Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
