These were a little larger scale than I was expecting but they are very good quality, very sturdy and solid. They were pretty easy for me to assemble. The quality is excellent - from the picture I thought the fabric was going to be plain and not so nice - I was expecting to recover them but when they arrived I was very happy to find that the fabric is a very nice linen-like. I am completely delighted with these chairs!

Ordering these chairs was an interesting experience, I began by ordering a single set to be sure my husband and I approved of the size, look and comfort. This original set were lovely and really easy to put together, once we determined we were going to keep them I ordered two more sets. These next two sets were a disaster, neither set was made well, they literally seemed like factory seconds. The chair legs did not fit properly into the designated slots, one set arrived with a broken chair inside. Immediately I called Overstock.com customer service and was pleased with the return process. I was hesitant to reorder the chairs, but what was I gonna do with the two I already had, so I took a chance and ordered two more sets. The next two sets were just like the first set, lovely and easy to assemble. It's a good thing that the first set had been such a good experience or I'd have missed out on these very stylish, comfortable chairs.
I have been hunting for dining room chairs for months, I have gone to every major furniture store and have taken countless photos of potential chair candidates.
The challenges were young children AND tall family members. I have been looking for a chair with a seat size that was deep enough and wide enough to be comfortable for tall people with long legs. I also needed something that could be wiped down easily if young messy fingers got on them and an upholstered area that would be easy to recover if needed. I also needed a chair with style that wouldn't break the bank since I needed 8 of them! This chair fits all those needs, it has a comfortable cushion seat that is deep and wide, it has grace and style,
And the seat comes off easily if and when I need to recover it. Many of the chairs I liked ran around $XXX-$XXX a chair so it would have cost me 2-3 times what these chairs cost! The chair color matches perfectly to my 9 foot mahagany table. I will say make sure you compare the width of chairs with the length of your table. I thought I had a big table but 3 chairs on each side completely fills each side of the table. These are large chairs.
They come in large boxes so you may need help getting the boxes in your home by yourself. My husband and I put all 8 chairs together right away because other reviews commented on damaged chairs. Sure enough 2 of the eight had cracked backs. I expected it from reading the other reviews so I wasn't upset. I phoned customer service the next day and expected them to be extremely helpful because all the reviews said they were and customer service was great!! All of the reviews I have read rave about customer service and so far so good! They are sending me 2 chairs ASAP and they said if I don't hear from the shipper about picking up the damaged chairs within 10 days I can just throw the chairs out.
These arrived and were nice but both were scratched. I thought the quality was finbe but my husband felt like the pieced of wood did not match well and even questioned if they were all hard wood. We sent them back.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair to good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate but these are big chairs!
We bought 8 of these chairs and love them. Very comfortable and easy to move, but also built very sturdy.
Pay attention when you attach the legs to the chairs because there are two different lengths of bolts.
I removed the cushions right away and applied two light layers of spray on Scotchgard. (Ace Hardware)
These chairs add to the clean contemporary look of our home.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The upholstery color on the web site appears a lighter white but its more of a light gold/tan linen color.

Good value for the price. Easy to assemble. Larger than I anticipated, so I was pleasantly surprised. These are not Baker chairs, so don't expect them to be blemish free. Understand what you are ordering.
OMG they are so nice.
Color matches perfectly with my cabinets.
I am thrilled the color of the pad.
It is perfect and the person who said that they will accommodate a large seat was right.
Quality chair for a reasonable price.
Thrilled with these chairs and the O site everyday I find something else to buy....Thanks
