  • 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!

    • 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.
  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. attractive, sturdy construction, well-made
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? exact
  • 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.

  • Great chairs

    Excellent sturdy comfortable chairs at a reasonable price.

  • Great Chairs, one had a defect though

    After reading all the reviews I went ahead and ordered a total of 4 chairs. I am very happy with them (the ones that were constructed correctly). I did, however, receive a damaged chair. When assembling it I noticed a hairline crack on one of the legs which I disregarded at first. Less than a week later, the leg snapped right off after simply pulling it out to sit. I noticed on the inside of the wood it looked the stain that was used penetrated the inside wood which confirmed my belief that it was cracked before it had been assembled. After about a week working with customer service, my new chair is on its way and everything has been sorted out. The reason for the 4 stars is because of what I stated above and the fact that one of my chairs was missing a piece of hardware; but again, customer service sorted it all out. Thank you Mike L.

  • Beyond my expectations!

    I bought these chairs based on the reviews that I read about them and I was not disappointed in the least. In fact, they are way and above my expectations. I couldn't really see the color of the seat of the chair online so I took a chance that they would go with my hard rock maple table. They absolutely look like they came with the table. They are gorgeous. They are sturdy. They are lovely. Thank you, Overstock.

  • sturdy, attractive

    Not difficult to put together. Wait to tighten all screws until you are finished and then tighten them with chair upright on floor. A little uneven at first on old floors but seem to adjust with sitting so no rocking.

  • 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.

What do you have to do to put these chairs together bestbirddogoreo on Feb 4, 2014

Answer This Question

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. lorackz on Feb 8, 2014
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 :) ktflgal4 on Jul 31, 2014

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 dustyscrn on Nov 19, 2013

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. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 26, 2013
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! kkcvmt on Jun 12, 2014
42 inches...very nice heavy chairs...worth buying :) Also has very wide seat...a plus ! ktflgal4 on Jul 31, 2014
