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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The chairs are well made
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was accurate - but you can't tell the size from the pictures
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.
We'd been wanting some extra seating for our table (and picnic table, even though these are rated for outdoor use) and found ones similar at World Market, but for more expensive than on Overstock. And we got a $$$ off overstock coupon that made it totally worth getting. Since they're not meant to be kept outdoors, just bring them into your garage, shed, patio when you're not using them.
These chairs were the perpect find for my house. I don't have to worry about anyone spilling food on them, if so...i can just wipe them off because there is no fabric to clean. These chairs can be stacked and stored away easy. I bought them for family gatherings. You can dress them up around a nice wood table or use them outside for a bbq. Very stylish chairs, Great buy!!!
Will this chair slide under a standard height table when not in use? Also, do these chairs coordinate with the Tabouret 30-inch metal barstools? Thanks.benayl on Jan 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi benayl, these chairs can be slid under a standard table about half way. They match very well with the bar stools. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 16, 2014
They won't slide under and yes they coordinate. I have both.tlovitt26 on Feb 3, 2014
We are using a tulip table, and these actually push in further than our previous chairs (which had no arms) did because of the shallow seat depth.dreadpiratejennie on Feb 10, 2014

These chairs do not fit under our table at all - ours has a low apron.chal118 on Jun 3, 2014

Yes - currently they are only available as a set of 4.really3216 on Oct 28, 2013
Hello lnk8222! I really like these chairs! These lovely chairs have a ship weight of 51 pounds. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 18, 2013
When I received the box the chairs were stacked and there was a wooden attached to the bottom so I would think the chairs are maybe 10 pounds a piece. I don't think of them as heavy.chal118 on Jun 3, 2014
I really like these chairs, but wondered how they would fare on the patio. Would they rust easily or should they hold up to the outdoor elements?auntchandi on Jul 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
If they're decently covered, I would assume they would last okay. I wouldn't suggest leaving them out where they get rained on a lot, however.squibus on Aug 25, 2013
If you live in a humid climate I would think that they would rust over time, even under a patio.sandiegoelf on Jan 23, 2014
I have use these chairs outdoors for two years in a relatively humid climate. Two were on my screened-in, covered back porch. These have held up very well, with just some rust in the gap/seam between the back of the chair and the seat, but otherwise look great. The other two were on a covered but open front porch. These are a little worse for the wear, with minor but noticeable rust haze and spots on the seams, seat, and back. Certainly not terrible but trying to clean it has definitely damaged the finish, and I will likely repaint them in the next few months. Wouldn't recommend them for an uncovered patio or deck, though, unless you're committed to bringing them in on damp daystwinklefish on Jun 1, 2014
I'm looking to purchase these for my patio. Would they be weatherproof? (rain and some sun)bwf211 on May 20, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello bwf211, although they are made out of metal they are designed for indoor use. I hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 20, 2013
No, I believe that they say on description that they are for indoor use only. I think they would rust very quickly.00tarah on Jun 11, 2013
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
Are the chairs the same finish and material of the Tabouret 24-in Metal Counter Stool set? I can see the picture for those better than the chair set.janarobertson on Nov 26, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, the chairs and the Tabouret 24-in Metal Counter Stool have the same finish. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 26, 2012
Yes, we sell a selection of cushions suitable for the chairs. The dimensions of the chair seat is 14 inches wide x 17.5 inches seat height.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 25, 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
The only way of telling if these chairs are suitable for you is to purchase the chairs and try them out. It''s difficult to advise you what the cost of return shipping is. We do all our returns through UPS and unfortunately, we cannot tell you how much the return shipping cost will be.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 22, 2012
