i have been searching for these chairs...the perfect ladderback chair that is tall, with a nice size seat, sturdy, yet affordable...and these are the chairs!! i ordered these from overstock after comparing the model number to other sites and confirming these are taller than overstock says (they are 42" tall - the proper height for these chairs!). when the package came (in just a few days!), i knew i would be pleased. i assembled them today - and it took about 20 minutes per chair (the first one was most difficult). you can screw the bolts in as far as you can with an electric screwdriver, then use the allen wrench for tightening. the wood is solid, and the chairs are heavy (solid not bulky). i highly recommend these chairs!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? excellent
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? unfortunately, no - this chair is actually taller than the web page says. it is 42" tall. i searched a few other sites for the same product/number and found these chairs elsewhere, but wanted to buy from overstock. other than that, yes they did match the description.
Ordered the black chairs...love the style, color, great value ! Very heavy & sturdy :) Chairs were delivered in just 3 days, packed perfectly...no issues. Included 2 extra packages of hardware (bolts, screws), so glad it did...will explain later !!! I put these chairs together by myself...first chair was a little hard (time consuming and a bit frustrated with directions). Second chair went together with no issues. Now to explain the major issue with the instructions: STEP 1 says to use #3 & #1 bolts when PICTURESHOWS using #2 & #1 bolts ! STEP 2 says to use #2 bolts, PICTURE SHOWS using # 3 bolts...UGH ! *** DO NOT USE*** THE # 3 BOLTS AT ALL WHEN PUTTING THESE CHAIRS TOGETHER (TOO SHORT BOLTS) ! *** USE # 2 BOLTS IN STEPS 1&2...Makes for a much sturdier chair and an easier assembly. END RESULTS -> LOVE THESE CHAIRS :)
These chairs are quality furniture. I have been searching for four dining room chairs for my antique dark oak trestle table, and these are the ideal complement. I love the generous size of the seats; they definitely accommodate the average male comfortably. I ordered them on a Monday and received them Thursday. They arrived in perfect condition and were not difficult to assemble.

I bought these chairs 4 or 5 years ago and decided to post a review because of how well they have held up. They took some time to assemble (you have to be careful when lining the seat up with the frame) but it was well worth the effort. They're very sturdy, don't wobble at all, and are comfortable. At one time, about a year ago, we tightened the screws and they are good as new. These chairs are an excellent value.
These are good-looking, sturdy chairs that were easy to assemble. I bought four of them and quality-control appears to be quite good. They appear less conservative in their contours than traditional ladderback chairs, but the positive tradeoff in this is that they are also more comfortable. For decent solid wood chairs, they're a great deal. A word of caution, though: two of the chairs had staples protruding from the bottoms of a leg--which I discovered when adding floor sliders.
This item was packed very well for shipping. When assembling, it is important to note there are left and right front legs. The instructions do not distinguish, and if you mix them up the front stringer will not mate properly. It took about 15 minutes per chair to assemble. I like the style and the overall quality of this product. I ordered the cinnamon/espresso and the chair top is actually a little lighter than the picture indicated, but still a keeper in my book.
We love the look and style of these chairs. The chairs have to be assembled. We bought four and I assembled them before my husband got home and he was impressed. After assembling one the rest are a breeze. This was way out of my element so do not let assembling the chairs detour you!
I bought three sets of these chairs in black. All arrived undamaged and were delivered on the day promised. It took awhile to put them together. You will certainly want an extra pair of hands. I love the end result and they look so nice with my cherry colored table and black buffet. They are also comfortable to sit in with or without a cushion.
The chairs were easy to assemble, and are exactly what we were looking for. My wife and I assembled 8 in less than 90 minutes. I used a cordless impact gun and a ratchet allen wrench. The only thing that I was disappointed at is, the company is in the Carolinas but the chairs are made in southeast Asia.

I ordered these chairs on the Monday before I was having a rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding. They arrived on Wednesday. The only problem was that one of the seats on the chair was broken in half. Since I didn't have time to call and get a new seat, my husband who is handy glued the pieces together and made it work for our party. I called the next week and the customer service rep was very helpful and friendly and put in an order for a new seat. Several days later it arrived and the chair is perfect. I bought 4 of them but now I want to order 2 more so I have a set of 6. They are perfect for my oak table!

I love these chairs with the farmhouse table that I already had. The backs are nice and tall, the look is pretty and they're sturdy! The seat, being wood, of course is hard, so I got chair pads so they're more comfy, but the price and look of these chairs was hard to beat. I got them in the black. I think they will hold up for years, and I really think the style of them is nice!
Ordered these chairs because it said solid wood. The first set came and one of the cross bars for the legs arrived broken. I called and they said they would send me a new chair. Apparently, they needed more information on the chair because the gal failed to understand the first time what was broken so it took longer for me to get a replacement. I called again and the lady apologized and was very customer friendly and explained my options for replacement. They sent me another box set of chairs and again, another leg piece was broken on one of the chairs. It worked out since I had one good chair from both boxes. But I was left with two broken chairs which is such a waste for Overstock to do business this way. I informed the lady that if they had enough padding and packaged the chairs correctly in the first place, they wouldn't be wasting money resending and shipping extra chairs to customers....crazy! Anyway, bottom line is, it worked out and the chairs aren't as thick and heavy as my $* chairs that I was matching however, they are good enough and nice looking for the price.
I purchased a farmhouse table from Pottery Barn and didn't like the chairs that were paired with it. So I was in search of the perfect chairs and I finally found these. I love the detail at the tops and the black finish were the perfect contrast to the rustic wood table. These were very affordable and arrived quickly. After a tiny bit of confusion (I'll explain) these were pretty easy for myself and a friend to assemble in less than an hour for all 4 chairs. No husbands required lol! My only complaint on these chairs is that the instructions stink! However, using some common sense, it is easy to figure out where the bolts go. My advice would be just to switch where the long and the medium bolts go on the instructions. The instructions say to attach the medium bolts in a place where only the long bolts can reach. I just switched them and it all worked out fine for my chairs. Once assembled, these chairs are super sturdy and large. They look much more expensive than they are and I love them!
Even though I returned these chairs it wasn't because of quality. They are very nice for chairs in this price range. They seemed solid and the finish was very nice. I returned them because of size. The seats were simply too wide. The front flares out and would've been too crowded when placed side by side under my table.
We were very happy with our purchase beautiful, sturdy chairs compliments our rustic dining table. Great value. We only had one problem with one chair on one of the back legs was about 1/8 of an inch longer filed it down no more rocking all fixed still would recommend these chairs.
