A durable rubberwood construction and a slat back design highlight these durable chairs. This set features a sleek black finish and will be a great addition to almost any dining set. If you are using these in addition to existing chairs, stagger them so that the different chairs alternate or simply use cloth chair covers to make all of your chairs look the same. When not in use at the dining table, these chairs work well for seating at a desk, near the door for seating during shoe removal or even in your living room next to a small table.
The chairs have seat heights of 18 inches, and each seat is made from solid wood. The flat surface offers a great opportunity to add tie-on chair pads and help them fit with your existing decor. However, the dark stain is versatile enough to match your home even if you don't add extras.
Set of four (4) chairs

I've assembled the first of the 2 batches of these chairs that I ordered. I was skeptical thinking these chairs may be flimsy, but they have turned out to be nice and solid!!
Here are some additional details about the chairs that might be useful:
* the chairs weight about 15lbs a piece and feel very solid when you pick them up.
* the frame construction uses pocket screws (hex bolts actually).
* there are at least two hex bolts for attaching each leg to the frame -- perpendicular to each other -- so if the chair loosens you can tight up that hex bolt.
* the chairs are made of rubberwood, which has about the same density at maple, though it is more porous so not a durable. (over time we'll see if that is the case) http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/2011912
Be prepared for an all day, exhausting project if you buy these. Every single part of the chair is a separate piece. Your hands and back will ache by the time you are finished and it indeed takes two people to get this done. After the first chair, we developed a sort of assembly linre process but still it took all day. This puts new meaning to the phrase "assembly required." The end product is sturdy enough, though we ended up with one split leg and partially split lower back. The leg was easy enough to replace but nothing could be done about the back without taking the entire chair apart. I was not about to put together one more of these chairs. This a hard call becauise the end product is a good deal, but I would not have purchased these had I known how hard it would be to assemble them.
Excellent value. Yes, you have to put the chairs together, but the effort/time is worth the savings. These same chairs at a local furniture place would have cost me 6x as much! We boought 2 sets (8 chairs), so it took some time to put together, but with the help of a friend, we had them done in a couple of hours total. Once you get the first one figured out they go together quickly.
Great chairs once they're put together. After the first one it is a little less difficult. The manufacturer could have supplied covers for the screw holes as they are quite large and give the chair an unfinished look. The chairs are sturdy though and should last for quite a while. Great value for the price,
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was perfect.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is average. Some holes for screws were missing and then there were some holes that served no purpose.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was accurate.
These chairs are GREAT for the price. Yes, you see the screw heads on the side of the chair. However they are black to help them blend - and you aren't paying very much per chair for this product! I was missing a few screws, which overstock was VERY responsive to my inquiry and I am expecting the missing pieces any day now. So far the chairs seem very solid. I am very happy with the value of this product.
These chairs are very small and did not look like a good size for my 42" round table. They would probably work well in a small space with a cafe' table. Each chair took my husband and i about an hour to put together and we are very handy. They seem sturdy and I will put them in storage and use them when i need extra seating.
I really wanted to love these chairs, and I had very fair expectations. Of course I didn't expect incredible quality at this price point, but I wanted sturdy chairs that functioned well. These chairs are sturdy and they look pretty good, but six of the eight chairs wobble! The legs are uneven! I have built and rebuilt these chairs, but the wobble is not my fault - the pilot holes in the legs are simply uneven. I cannot give anything above one star for chairs that are infuriatingly uneven. That's the most basic requirement for a chair, isn't it? Also, the bolts to fasten the legs to the chair are visible along the outside of the chair, so you won't fool anyone into thinking you purchased nice prebuilt dining chairs.
These chairs took forever to assemble. The instructions are not clear and the pieces not well marked. It took several hours for two mechanically inclined people to assemble them. Poor alignment was also an issue.
With minimal use (once a day, if that), the screws frequently loosened and needed to be re-tightened. This happened a LOT.
Once chair broke after about 8 months, with the front support beam splitting lengthwise and the front leg collapsing. A second chair followed two months later, with the SAME defect occurring and leg collapsing. As stated, these chairs are used AT MOST once a day for dinner. We weigh, at most, 150 lbs., the majority of us much less.
I contacted Overstock to get information on how to get the support replaced for the chairs and was told that they could not help me. Now I'm stuck with two broken chairs, and two that will likely break sometime in the future if the design/batch is all the same.
I do NOT recommend these chairs unless you want to consistently repair them and don't intend to use them.
These chairs are great quality.. hardwood and nice black finish. The only complain i have is that one of the chair was missing threads so we couldnt screw the chair together. But customer care was helpful and resolved my issue.. Highly recommended!
Hello bbrowneyes81, These chairs have received excellent reviews! Each chair weighs approximately 15 pounds. The weight capacity for each chair is 250 pounds. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us.
