There was only one review of this product and it was a negative one so that got me nervous. I really needed some dining room chairs and these ones are the perfect color and they came in a 4 pack-- so I bought them despite the negative review. Once I figured out the hardware, putting them together was easy. The color is true to the picture-- very dark mocha. One of the backs did have a broken piece so I called Overstock and they ordered me a replacement immediately. The chairs look great, they are simple and classic, and you CANNOT beat this price!
Unlike many of the other reviewers, I had no problem putting these chairs together. I actually enjoy those sorts of projects and thought that this one was easier than some of the other purchases I've recently made.
Once they were put together, the chairs looked great! I thought they were comparable to our other dining chairs that we'd purchased from **** and were less than a quarter of the cost.
Unfortunately, we hadn't had the chairs 24 hours before my husband sat in one of them, and it cracked through one of the legs. He is of average size, so this was completely unexpected. I am wondering if perhaps I over-tightened some of the screws which caused excess tension on the joint? Regardless, this was extremely disappointing, especially given Overstock's extremely limited return policy. I will think twice before making future purchases of this kind.

These chairs are nice looking, but don't buy them if you're planning on actually sitting on them. I bought 8 chairs in September, and so far 4 have broken (only 4 months old). Don't scoot the chair back, or pull them out from the table cause they will break in half. Leaning back in chairs is not a good idea for any chair, but these don't stand a chance even for the slightest tipping back. They are junk and do not hold up. I have pictures of the broken chairs and they have all broken in the same place, where the seat meets the back legs. A waste of money.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. JUNK
As stated before this product comes in many pieces; approx. 9 wooden pieces and 35 pieces of hardware per chair. Be prepared for this and think of the contents as a "chair kit" not chairs and you won't be so disappointed. I am not mechanically inclined and I had two toddlers running around while putting these together assembly style and it took about 3 hours. It wasn't hard to follow the instructions, but you do have to use a tiny little hex tool that comes with the chairs to tighten most of the screws and that takes some time (plus I had to rest my poor thumb and forefinger between chairs). The extensive build time and the fact that a piece of hardware was missing are the only reason I gave the chairs 4 stars and not 5. Once put together the chairs are very sturdy, they weigh about 16lbs each, the kids spill all over them and they clean up great. They do not look cheap, as a matter of fact I have seen very similar chairs at **** that cost about as much for one as the whole set of four on Outlook.
If you have ANYONE weighing over 100lbs in your household these chairs will break on them. That should actually be the guarantee the company includes with the product. The seat height is normal but the backs of the chairs are meant for a third grade classroom. Also, I'm extremely handy, I use tools and have actually BUILT a shaker table...these chairs took me nearly an hour each to build. Poorly illustrated directions and parts that you need to secure with wood glue to attempt to get longevity out of them. Overall: You get what you pay for. #moneythrownaway

We have a large family, and we just bought a 14 seater table. These chairs looked like an economical way to provide a spot for everyone at our dining table. The chairs (although time consuming) were easy enough to put together, and they are nice looking. However, within the first two weeks of our purchase, I broke one of the legs off of the chair simply by scooting back. Grant it, I'm pregnant, and I tried to scoot on a rug, but I am not a "large" person by any stretch. I figured it was just a freak accident, and wasn't too concerned about it. Unfortunately, my husband, who is not fat AT ALL did the same thing last week. Apparently the wood the chairs are made of is not very sturdy. The chairs are cute and cheap, but they are not extremely durable. My recommendation is that if you plan on purchasing these chairs, use them on a hard surface. I do not know if they would hold up in a restaurant situation. All in all, they're nice enough, but you get what you pay for.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is just so-so.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate. However, there was no description of durability...which is the area in which these chairs fail miserably.
Rubberwood is a misunderstood species of wood in the furniture industry. The name rubberwood invokes a variety of misconceptions as to it's features and to it's durability. Rubberwood (also called Parawood in Thailand) is the standard common name for the timber of Hevea brasiliensis. Rubberwood is one of the more durable lumbers used in the manufacturing today. As a member of the maple family, rubberwood has a dense grain character that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process. Rubberwood shrinks very little, making it one of the more stable construction materials available for making furniture.
