      Verified Purchase

      Took about 10 minutes each to put together. They seem very sturdy, but I might have to tighten the screws once a year to keep them that way. I am very happy with the purchase.

    • once again, a great find from overstock!
      Verified Purchase

      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!

    • Classy Ladderbacks
      Verified Purchase

      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 :)

    • Excellent value
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Great chairs that have held up for years
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Good Deal
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    • Hello, what is the width at the widest point of the seat (Front left edge to front right edge), 16.5? I need to see how many I can fit under the table.

      • Specs indicate width to be 19.5 inches. There is also a dimension listing width as 16.5. I have 4 of these. Great chairs. The widest point...front left seat edge to right seat edge measures closer to 20 inches, in the ballpark of 19.5 as listed...not 16.5 though. Perhaps that 16.5 is mentioned as the width of the narrowest part of seat. Didn't check that.

    • Are the arm chairs available? I have 8 of the Black with Cherry seat and would like to have two arm chairs.

      • 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.
