All you need to do is look at the price to understand that these are probably not heirloom quality chairs that your descendents will still be sitting on 300 years from now. But I find them to be of perfectly acceptable quality given the price paid, the ones that were shipped to me had all of their hardware, simple assembly instructions, and no missing or damaged parts; in short, they arrived in perfect condition and are still in perfect condition after assembly by myself (and I'm a TOTAL amateur at that kind of thing!) They look like a million bucks - very contemporary, chic, sophisticated and stylish. I'm using them mainly as accent pieces, so I can't comment as to how they'd stand up to heavy daily usage but for my needs, they're perfect and I'd absolutely recommend them. The background color IS NOT white - I've noticed some people asking that question. I wouldn't even call it cream, it's more like the color of natural linen, IMO. Which I think is part of what adds to their high-end look. Yes they're smaller in scale but they are still full-sized chairs; they don't look like miniatures or anything. Mine have a consistent finish on the wood legs, they don't smell bad, or present any of the other negative qualities that other reviewers have stated. Maybe I just got lucky but I love these chairs.

Stunning! I have a dining set and two of the chairs broke during my move. I purchased these and my oh my how gorgeous!! The print is even more stunning in person. Even my mom liked them, which rarely happens! They were easy to assemble, I am a tiny girl so I am not sure how much weight these chairs would hold- to be honest, it doesn't seem like it would hold a person over 200 lbs without breaking. Anyways, love these, I think it looks better having just 2 of them versus 4, 4 may be too over powering.

Pretty chairs that went nicely with Shaker table also purchased from Overstock. Nice fabric. Semi-difficult to assemble because of screw holes not being exactly at the correct angle. Ordered 4 chairs, 3 of the 8 front legs were damaged. Contacted Customer Service and replacement legs were sent very quickly. No hassle at all. Very efficient CS representatives. My daughter loves the chairs and they look great in her small apartment.

I purchased a total of four of these chairs. They are being used by adults only with no annoying sitting habits (tipping back, etc.). The fabric was of average quality, but did clean well when coffee was spilled on them. The chairs are wood based and the screws holding the chair legs to the chair base do not stay screwed in. I have even tried wood glue to try to keep them together. Unfortunately, it won't matter as the legs began in December to crack vertically. The chairs held together about 8 months before they started falling apart. I would not recommend these to anyone.
As said in other reviews this is a poorly made product unlike other things Ive purchased from Overstock. My first guest sat on the chair and the leg broke. He is normal size man 6 foot, 180 pounds. The upholstry will never hold up either. They look good but arent.
After reading other reviews, the chairs were pretty much what I expected. The legs are black, the cushions are a cream color with a black scroll design (almost a velvet feel to the black). They are light weight, and not real durable, although they do look nice. For the price, I was satisfied.
These chairs are beautiful in person. Many friends have seen them and think they are designer quality. They are on the small/ narrow side, however that is exactly what I needed. Having said that, they feel durable. I read the reviews before purchasing them, and I believe there is just no pleasing some people. I actually hesitated ordering them for a few days, then panicked when i thought they were no longer available. These chairs are awesome and you can not beat the price! I bought four and was able to put them together myself in about an hour. Can't say enough great things... Buy them.

I am not sure of how rubber wood is made, but these chairs are as sturdy as any of my (wooden leg chairs) , My husband is 6'6" and weighs 220#,he has had no trouble sitting in these chairs?There is not looseness or wobble at all in these chairs. They are the most sturdy chairs I have found and I have been looking for 20 years to find the perfect chairs for my dining room. I loved these chairs so much I purchased 4 sets and am having to be strong and not give into the temptation to buy more. The biggest surprise I got was, these chairs are not Black and White, unless you are colored blind. These chairs are a beautiful shade of linen and chocolate Brown not Black. Because of this they are surprising neutral. I have six wooden chairs that are a brownish shade and these chairs look like they were bought together. The person that said the chairs were unstable and one leg even broke, did not buy the same chairs I did. Really, even though their legs are make of rubber, they are solid all the way through just like wood, if anything this makes them stronger! I am sending a picture so you can see how beautiful and stylish they are. Everyone has had nothing but compliments, and can't believe the price and how well made an sturdy they are. I have heard Oh My ::: where did you get those beautiful chairs about 50 times, and I have only had them since Easter. In fact they where used for Easter Dinner for 10. Thank you Overstock for such beautiful dining room chairs, great service, and amazingly fast delivery.Last but not least, the most amazing thing about these chairs being made of solid not hollow rubber, no ugly chair tips like you have to put on wooden chairs, rubber won't scratch your hardwood or marble floors! These chairs are a incredible value and they were about a 4th of what nice dining room chairs usually cost. I know, because I have been looking for 20 years for just the right chairs! FOUND THEM!!!!!! """""" on Aug 9, 2014
I liked the look of those chairs, and the fact that they were light - easy to move around. However, when my son came to visit, he broke one of them without exerting any effort - he just reclined a little farther, and it cracked underneath him, and no, my son's weight is normal:)
These are smaller scale parsons style chairs but they are perfect in my smallish dining area. The fabric is gorgeous and they look like they cost way more than I paid for them. They're very stable and fairly substantial. I love that the bottom of the chair is finished with a dust cover and that it is attached with velcro instead of the usual staples. I already own the black rubber wood table they sell with the chairs as a set so I was happy to find these adorable chairs a la carte.
The Chairs are great and I LOVE the look of these. They are exceptional for the price point. I purchased 6 and had to return two as the legs were not even and they wobbled. However, the exchange was super easy to do and all 6 chairs are fabulous!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!
My chairs arrived very quickly, and in great condition. They were super easy to put together - just tighten 9 bolts and you're done...took maybe 10 minutes each. They are beautiful, soft, and comfortable. I bought them to use with two desks so having something comfortable to sit on for a while was important. For the price I thought these were worth taking a chance. Quality-wise, I don't expect these to last 50 years, but I'm sure they'll stand up to the kind of use they will receive. I'm not going to stand on them, lean back in them, or use them in any other inappropriate manner. I would perhaps suggest oiling the wood under the seat to keep it from drying out and cracking. The fabric is lovely and they are a beautiful addition to both my home and work office.
I purchased four chairs to accompany a dining room table I got from a major retailer. The assembly took one person about 90 minutes. Some of the screws took time to install. The padding on the seat isn't the most comfortable after a long period. The chairs are also not short, so beware they will fit under your table with adult human legs. A body-builder friend of mine came over for dinner and he was not able to swing his legs under the table. There is a slight odor to the chairs; I might set them on the patio in the sun for an hour to see if that helps. The "cream" colored fabric is more upholstery looking in-person. I was hoping for microfiber, but the end result isn't terrible. Would purchase again. Not planning on keeping the chairs for a decade.
