Purchased four of these chairs because my small children had virtually destroyed our wooden chairs. I had previously purchased the counter height stools & been very pleased. We have been using the chairs about 2 weeks. They arrived no problem, no scratches or dents (despite a huge rip in the box). I pulled them out of the box ready to use. The kids have managed to tip; them with effort, & my smallest (3) has managed to fall out the side (on purpose) but overall these have been a great choice for us. The bases work well on our hardwood floors & they wipe down great (the seam at the back can get crumbs, but hasn't been difficult to clean). Decor wise, we paired them with an older wooden table & brushed nickel lighting. They definitely have a modern cafe type feel, & make the room feel more open.... Another poster mentioned they don't slide up under the table which I was concerned about, but I found they don't take up much more room than my previous chairs. Regarding fitting.... I have had a pretty heavy set guest use them for one meal, & I noticed she just sat forward in her chair with no problems.
It's difficult to give a starred review on this one. Loved the chairs themselves. Great look and high quality. Minor blemishes occurred in shipping, however, which was a bit disappointing. HOWEVER, Overstock was simply wonderful about the return. One caveat to the chairs, though. If your behind (or your expected guests' behinds) are any wider than a ladies' size 12....beware. Because of the arms, the width of the seat is limited.
I have been looking for chairs like this for a year! They are so similar to other French cafe chairs, who will remain nameless, but for a fraction of the price! Just 1 of the other chairs would have cost about as much as 8 of these!!! I am still in shock at the value of these! I plan to use them outside, so will most likely have to spray them with some kind of protective coat, as they say for indoor use only, but they look very well made and so sturdy, I do not anticipate any problems. They do not however look like galvanized metal, so if you are looking for a more rustic look, this may not be what you are looking for. I have them around a huge farmhouse outdoor table though and they look perfect!
We purchased the chairs for our conference room at the office to match the whole metal/wood vibe we are doing. The chairs look great, but aren't comfortable. I bought seat cushions at Target so the staff will sit in them. Also, I am a petite female and fit the chairs fine, but the chairs are too small for our over 6 ft male staff.

Overall, some great chairs. They feel like they're sturdy and made well - not just some flimsy metal chairs. The finish is a little bit more of a dull grey - so it's not a bright-ish silver, if that's what you're looking for. They're simple though, and pretty cool looking. First weekend we had them, we had a BBQ and got a lot of compliments on them. We're also using them for outdoor seating, and haven't had an issue with it. Who knows though, maybe after a few months the paint will start to come off since it says they're for indoor use only... so far so good though. And hey - 4 cool looking, sturdy chairs for this price? Was worth it in my opinion. Overall, we like them so far.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It compared decently well; however, my experience is in line with some of the other comments. I had hoped they were a little brighter of a silver. They're sort of a more dull grey, but look nice.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality seems great. We're actually using them as outdoor seating (even though they say for indoor use), and haven't had any issues at all. Although, we've only had them about a month now.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate, as were the reviews.
Our experience was consistent with other reviews. Chairs were impressively packed for shipment and arrived in perfect condition. They look great in our eclectic kitchen, blending well with stainless appliances, modern white cabinetry and butcher block farmhouse style table. Their small scale is a plus for us, as it's often hard to find dining chairs that are comfortable for relatively small/short people.
It took me a long time to order these but I am so glad I did. I paired them with a farm house style table and linen head chairs. a very cool farmhouse shabby chic look... so thrilled with the way it came out. these are NOT distressed the way some other stores sell them - they are a true metal/grey finish. if you are going them with linen chairs the nail heads should be silver in color as well. the price cannot be beat and i am so pleased with the entire look. if you are going for the industrial farmhouse look- these are the way to go. Also, my boyfriend was worried they would be "cold" to sit on- but they are not at all. they're quite spacious and comfy. I do not recommend a seat cover actually as I like the style as is.

2 sets of friends have seen our new chairs and are going to purchase them now! They are that great! One came slightly damaged and Overstock has blown me away with their resolution process. I am crazy about this purchase and buying bar stools to match. Fabulous! Thank you!
The main picture for this does not depict how bland these chairs look. Basically they look like the 2nd picture without the texture. These chairs look awful. The silver is painted on. 2 things that happened with these chairs. 1 chair was already chipped exposing the original metal (not sure what type of metal it is). Another chair's back is starting to split apart. Not sure what I'm going to do with these. I might need to spray paint them so they look a bit textured or something.
These are great chairs! I have seen similar chairs all across the web and until now they have seemed unaffordable at $225+ per chair, but as always Overstock has the best price. My only disappointment is they are done with a glossy finish so they are not that more rustic feel I would prefer of galvanized metal but none the less they are still great! I plan on pairing mine with a table built from salvage barnwood.
I've had these chairs for about a year and a half. Bottom line, they are sturdy and look amazing. My kids complain sometimes that the chairs are cold on their legs when wearing shorts, but I prefer a little whine from them rather than a beat of looking chair from food stains or being handled by little ones. I've never had an issue with someone not fitting in the chair.... we've had grown men who aren't string beans sit in it just fine, my husband and I are average height and weight and the chairs feel fine.
Very good price for dining chairs. They are sized a bit small. They do not fit under our table and I feel that they are a bit short looking. We ordered around Christmas time and one came damaged. Overstock was great in replacing the dented chair.
These chairs are exactly as depicted online. They are attractive, sturdy and comfortable. They are perfect for me as I have a problem with my balance and these are heavy enough to NOT slide away from me as I go to sit down or get up. I replaced chairs that were on rollers and therefore presented a safety issue for me. These Tabouret chairs have no such safety issue.
These chairs have a great style, I just wish they were a little taller. I don't think the chairs are uncomfortable like some of the other reviews. They look great and are very strudy! If they were a little taller, I would use them as my dining room chairs. I've seen these style chairs at a much higher price at other stores.
I bought these chairs for our kitchen dining room. I like the chairs. They are more sturdy than I anticipated for the material that they are built from. I liked the cafe style which will go well the overall rustic, industrial design we are going for. My son loves to sit in these chairs.
I have five grandchildren under age ten. These chairs work great with them because of the easy clean up. They look very stylish in my kitchen and also match my other stainless steel appliances. I think I made a smart investment I also like that there was no assembly required . And the price was great.
Wow. Just, wow. Like all of the other reviewers, I have been shopping for this silhouette for well over a year. My desired chair was the same price. For one chair. I settled on this, after saving up Overstock gift cards, and it completely blew my expectations out of the water. The quality will definitely weather my 2 year old. I had concerns about the size, but they more than accommodate myself, my husband, and any guests that we have entertained. I did not have any issues with wobbly legs at all. I have it paired with an espresso round table from West Elm, and it is the PERFECT modern/farmhouse accent. I could not be happier!! Oh, and they arrived within 2 business days of ordering, and the packing definitely protected the shipment in transit.

Other than the one dented chair they were exactly as stated online. When I contacted Overstock about the one damaged chair they were very polite and helpful and explained that they would be sending a replacement chair. It arrived within a few days of that conversations.
