    • Beautiful chairs but imperfect installation

      I bought these chairs because other reviewers stated how sturdy and beautiful they are. This is definitely the case as far as the quality of materials the chair is made of however the actual pieces do not fit well. The front bar that connects the left and right leg does not fit into one of the pre-made holes therefore my husband had to sand it to make it fit, no big deal BUT the pre-made holes were not exact on each leg making the front bar VERY noticeably crooked on both chairs! Also, on one of the chairs one leg is shorter than the other as well making it wobbly. As long as nobody sees the chair alone outside of the table then it's a livable thing because the ladder backs on the chairs are BEAUTIFUL! I gave this chair an average rating due to the installation issues but the chairs themselves are beautiful especially for the price. If you don't mind the crooked front bars and possibly wobbly chair (which you can remedy with Home Depots help) then these chairs are a great buy.

    • Excellent look & quality

      Love these chairs! I ordered 6 of the brown on brown version. Easy to assemble after I got the first one done. Very heavy and sturdy hardwood chairs that will last forever! A few minor problems (packaging was falling apart upon arrival and one chair was missing 2 drilled holes for a leg brace, which I easily drilled), but they did not harm the overall quality or beautiful result. One caution when putting the chairs together, if you use a drill with a screwdriver bit, be very careful not to overtighten the screws, as they will continue to pierce the wood until the screw comes out the other side!! (I did this, unfortunately, then backed the screw off,but luckily it was under the seat and my mistake cannot be seen, thankfully I really think is a fabulous web business, and I will continue to buy from them, but they ought to insist that their quality control on their outsourced order shipments catches and repackages items that have been inventoried in damaged packaging (I have received 3/4 orders over the time I've purchased from them with damaged packaging, one of which was irreparably damaged. I would think it would cost less for them, and thus for us if they and we didn't have to hassle with returns for inadequate shipment packaging, But I'm not their Chief Financial Officer, so who's to say?!

    • Classy Ladderbacks

      Ordered the black the style, color, great value ! Very heavy & sturdy :) Chairs were delivered in just 3 days, packed 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 :)

    • once again, a great find from overstock!

      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!

    • Excellent value

      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.

    • Good Deal

      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.

    • Great chairs

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    Get your product questions answered right here.
    • What would the proper table height for these chairs be to feel comfortable while sitting at the table?

      • Hello R, the height of the proper table for these chairs would be approximately 30 inches tall. I hope this helps. Shelia B

    • Can you please tell me the height of the chair seat from the floor? This is important in my selection

      • Hello marj116! This lovely item has a seat height of 17.75 inches high. Thanks for shopping with us! -Amanda P

    • Are the white chairs really white and are they distressed? Is the seat of the white chairs dark or more of a light oak? Thanks

      • Hello mj49, the white chairs are really white, and not distressed. The seat of the white chairs is more of a dark oak. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • What do you have to do to put these chairs together

      • These chairs come in 8 pieces: A back, a frame for the seat, seat, 3 rungs and two legs. First you attach the seat frame to the back with a few bolts. Then you piece together (like a puzzle) the two front legs and three rungs and attach the legs to the seat frame with four bolts. Then you attach the seat to the seat frame with some screws. Finally, you put some screws into the rungs to hold them in place. This isn't too hard, but easier with two people. My husband and I put together 6 of these and it takes about 15 to 20 minutes for the first chair, and then you get better at it and it takes less time.

      • Noticed a comment about having to sand rungs (the dowel supports below the seat to keep legs together) to make them have to be sure that you use the right rung in its proper place ! IF you put them out of sequence the chair will be wobbly and it will not work...there is a definite pattern. Do not alter the chair rungs, keep turning them over and it will soon "dawn on you" which way they belong :)

    • how tall is this chair. The description says 36 inches, but it is a high back chair and one reviewer says that it is actually 42 inches. Please clarify. Thanks

      • Hello dustyscrn, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The chair height is 42 inches. We will be updating our site information. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • I thought they would look too tall, but because of the shape of the top piece on the chair back and the spaces between the chair back braces, they don't look tall like I was afraid they might!

      • 42 inches...very nice heavy chairs...worth buying :) Also has very wide seat...a plus !

    • What is the weight bearing capacity for this chair?

      • Thank you for contacting us, Overstock does not weight test Items; however this type of chair typically holds 200 to 250 pounds. Please let me know if you have any further question.
