The finish of wood in the center is lighter, almost a yellow color, which throws off the rest. It looked more contemporary in the photos, and I returned them because they are more reminiscent of the wood paneling I had on my bedroom walls as a kid. I never put them together, so I cannot attest to the quality. As soon as I saw the seat back I knew I was sending them back.
Was looking for mix of modern and transitional. Is more transitional, but with modern touches. Easy to assemble with given tool, but need long screw driver (used electric) for chair seats - to put on seat cushions. Cushions can easily be changed. Wood it beautiful. Medium walnut-looking base color and middle light wood color has dimension with darker flecks in it. Looks like it came with our long rectangular table and matching bench from World Market bought a couple years ago. Doesn't over power room (see dimensions of chair), yet defines our light colored tile and walls well with its match to the table. Great deal and great seats for price. Would have bought these in a showroom if I had seen them. Naive modern touches without overdoing them! Good buy - got 4.
I bought six of these chairs to go with a dark marble table. I wanted something fairly low profile but with some pizzazz. I feel like these fit the bill. I disagree with the other reviewer who commented that the wood in the middle looked yellow and like wood paneling. There is a definite color difference, but that is one of the reasons I like it. The difference in the wood color gives it a reclaimed wood feel but with a little bit of modern flair. The delivery was super fast; I ordered these on a Thursday and got them the next Monday. They were impeccably packed. I usually have trouble assembling furniture, but these were easy to put together, although still a little time-consuming for me. The wood feels solid and the chair is comfortable. The back does have a little bit of a curve in it which allows you to lean back a bit. The only thing I would have liked more is if the cushion came in a different material. Good chair and quality for the price.
I have been looking for chairs to go with a wood table we purchased from Overstock. The first chairs I tried were flimsy, too small, and one was broken. (Overstock was great in taking them back, no shipping charge, and giving me a refund.) Then I shopped local furniture stores, but still couldn't find anything that worked. Then I found these. They are perfect. The variety of colors in the finish allow them to accompany tables that aren't exactly the walnut color. We have a mix of wood in the same room and these chairs pull everything together. They are very solid, beautifully build. My husband has ended up assembling a lot of RTA pieces lately and he thought that these were some of the easiest and best built furniture we've found. Highly recommended, and thank you, Overstock!
thought these were unique but had my doubts, so I ordered 2 - was EXTREMELY pleased when they arrived, so I ordered 4 more - pretty easy to assemble if you can use a screwdriver & they are very substantial/sturdy, especially compared to other similarly priced chairs - haven't used them for long, so I can't attest to how they hold up over time, but they are super comfy! As someone who has spent an eternity searching for the perfect dining room chairs, I would definitely recommend these to other customers due to quality & price.
