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.
I love these chairs. They match perfectly with my new farmhouse table giving me the industrial rustic look I was going for perfectly. They are very durable which is important considering I have a 2 year old so seems to make mess wherever she walks. I can just wipe them down easily. I would definitely recommend these chairs to anyone who is interested. They are a great value! Some of the other reviews say they are too little and I disagree. Neither myself or my husband are "little people" I'm 5'8" and hes 6' and they are perfect and comfortable.

These chairs are really chic and bright! What I love about these chairs is that I paired them with a smaller white table and the fact that they do not fit under the table because of the shape of the arms really helped round out my table and give my table an illusion of a larger table. They were perfect for that! Also, I think they sit an inch or two lower then a regular wood dining chair so that also was perfect for my smaller size table. The color and style of this chair can be paired with so many different table types! You will not be disappointed with this chair! They came very quickly, already assembled and the price point for four chairs cannot be beat! I just wish Overstock sold them in 2's, as well, so I could have 6 all together. The silver color was bright and not dull and I think that makes these chairs great too! I do have kids and kids can sneak out under the arm of the chair, but I don't find that to be dangerous. As long as they don't try and hang from the arm of the chair (then it will tip)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great - light weight so not extremely sturdy, but the width of the chairs helps make them so they don't tip
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
These chairs are great. I am 5'2" and my husband is over 6 feet. They are very comfortable for both of us. They are sturdy, don't tip and solid chair. The price makes these chairs an excellent value and a purchase that won't be later regretted. After the order was placed, the shipment was at my door in just a few short days.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great.

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
