These chairs are sturdy & look very nice. My only complaint is that there is a hairline crack in the seat & in one of the support pieces on one of the chairs, but it's not bad enough to make me want to send it back. I had no problem with any of the screws being too long. It didn't take long at all to get these chairs after I placed the order. They shipped very quickly. These chairs suit my purposes perfectly. If I needed any more, I would purchase this item again.
I purchased these chairs to replace some rickety Windsor style chairs to match my white, tile top kitchen table. I was worried about the color matching, but they blend in great. They're a crisp white, but not too bright, so that they could go with either other bright white or slightly creamy white pieces. Although the angles at which the screws need to go in are a bit awkward, assembly was fairly easy. I had no problem with screws popping through anywhere. You do have to be careful, though, because there are two different screws that look identical, except for a slight variation in length, which makes all the difference. Sorting all hardware carefully before beginning is helpful. The only reason I didn't rate quality as "Excellent" is that out of the two sets I ordered, I did receive one chair that had a significant split on one side. However, a call to Overstock got me a replacement piece very quickly. another great Overstock customer service experience! The style is almost ideal. If the edges were a bit more rounded (like on the top rail) than angular, they would be perfect. But overall, I can't complain. They look great, and are very sturdy. The whole back of the chair from top rail to leg comes pre-assembled, as does the front piece. All that you have to do is connect them with support rails and the seat. I'm sure this method of construction adds to their stability. A nearly 300 pound relative sits in them regularly, with no wobbling! This was an overall great value, and I'm very pleased with them!
Ordered 4 of these chairs, arrived within a week of order in great condition. Quality overall is very good for the money. Great buy! Assembly was simple but a bit cumbersome using the Alan wrench, angles were difficult to get to but overall they went together nicely. Very solid and comfortable. These chairs look more expensive than they are and look great with the cottage theme of my home.
I ordered 8 of these chairs to go around the Winfrey table. A few of them have small cracks & the paint was chipped in a couple unnoticeable areas but I plan to sand a few areas to distress them anyways (or just leave them to my kids!). The only complain I have really is that there seem to be levelers on the bottom of each leg but they don't actually come out any, or I just can't figure it out. :/ So since my floor is not level in certain areas, they will rock back and forth. Which is especially annoying if the kid is in one of those chairs & thinks it's fun.

These chairs were a great purchase. The only color they have is white and I intend to fine sand them and paint them matte black but for the price it will be worth the work. They are solid and sturdy and the style I wanted. I bought one set the first time and just bought another.
I like the look of these chairs because we have a Victorian Second Empire-style house and they are a modernized Empure design that looks nice in the breakfast room. We ordered 4 and two arrived damaged (frame was cracked on one, paint damaged on another). Overstock dealt with the return efficiently. One warning--I'm pretty handy but I found the assembly relatively difficult. There are just a lot of screws (7 per chair) and bolts (8 per chair) to attach and it often involves some awkward positioning. But, they appear to be sturdy and look nice.
I was searching for everyday dining chairs that were pure white. I was going to buy *** version but they were off white in person. These are true brilliant white. They are solid and sturdy for sitting on. I like the style. There are a few little hairline cracks or paint chips in them but not noticeable or worth getting upset over. They are good quality for the price. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for pure white finish dining chairs at a reasonable cost.
Hello buddyjan, they are more white than antique white in my opinion. We try to represent the colors of our products accurately. Unfortunately, due to the difference in monitor colors we cannot guarantee that the color will match exactly what you see on your screen.
