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.
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.

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.
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.
Great chairs. I've received several compliments already. Very comfy, especially for petite and regular-sized people. Very sleek. 'Reminds of me of chairs I saw in Paris. We use them in the breakfast area. I constantly have to remind the kids not to rock or stand on it as per instructions. Other than that, these chairs are wonderful! And great price too!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I was expecting "silver" but they are more "powder" colored, which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5

You cannot beat the price on these chairs. Most other sites have 1 or 2 chairs for the price O.co has for 4. They are a bit narrow in the rear seat area as some of the other reviewers have mentioned but they are roomy enough for us and very comfortable.

Even though two of the chairs were slightly damaged considering how inexpensive they were, I was pleased. It would not have been worth the trouble to return two of the four chairs. I put a cushion on the scratched one and put the dented one at the back.

These chairs were bought based on their styling. The convenience factor of stacking was a bonus. The best part is they are actually comfortable. Certainly not cushy but the frame is smooth and curved in such a way as to fit well and provide support when sitting in them.
Overall a very good buy.

I purchased these chairs as contrast pieces to a round reclaimed wood table. I was a bit hesitant to buy these based on some of the other reviews about the finish, but in fact, this doesn't bother me at all. Unfortunately, however, I was quite surprised by the height of these chairs. Up against the table, they look tiny. The seat height would have been fine for eating at the table, but the backs of these chairs barely peered over the top of the table. They looked like children's furniture. In fact, from the next room, you could not see them at all. They were also incredibly uncomfortable. The top of the chair hits my back at a weird spot, which means there's almost no way to find a comfortable position, and my butt ends up numb in about 10 minutes.
I decided to keep them since I knew the return shipping would be quite expensive. I currently have them on our covered porch but will definitely need to invest in some cushions to make them work.
Thank you for your interest. The total shipping weight for these items is 51 pounds. The box dimensions are: 21 in H X 23 in W X 48 in L. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

I need 6 of these chairs. Is there a way to purchase the set of 4 and an additional 2?phelpskj on Dec 7, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Contact customer Service at 1 800 843 2446 and ask if someone can contact the warehouse to see if they would be willing to do this. If time is not an issue you might be better off to wait until after the holidays because this would be a special arrangement and everyone is terribly busy right nowoverstockcustomercare1 on Dec 7, 2012

I just received my chairs and the seat size is roughly 12" x 12", which I'm finding is an exceedingly difficult size to find for a seat cushion/chair pad. I think I am going to have to either make my own or have them custom-made.ktlktl on Dec 8, 2012
My apologies -- the seat size is actually about 14 in by 14 in (not 12 x 12). Much easier to shop for!ktlktl on Dec 8, 2012
I'm 5'10" and weigh about 230 lbs. I love the design of these chairs. however is it going to be big enough for myself? I see some reviews mentioned the size of the chair isn't big enough. If I need to return them back to you, how much it's going to cost? Thank you.illinoispp on Oct 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You will need to purchase the chairs and try them out. It's is difficult to advise you what the cost of return shipping it is. We do all our returns through UPS and unless the chairs are already to be return, we cannot tell you how much the return shipping cost will be.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 22, 2012
Items are restocked as they become available, however we cannot guarantee an item will be restocked. Please feel free to check back with us periodically to see if the item has returned.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 17, 2012
