I am an interior designer and use Overstock for all my chair needs. This chair in particular is really comfy. My husband is 6' and fits nicely. I have two in my living room conversation area. The color leans more towards the greeny-gold range. It is two shades darker than it appears online. It could even be called chartreuse. If you have animals beware. The fabric easily pulls with claws, etc. I am a little disappointed in the upholstery job. It is puckered in places on the arms and seat cushion. This takes the design from looking high end and sleek to cheap. I will have to get this fixed. The seat is perfectly firm, yet comfortable. There are extra support bands built into the seat frame. All in all this chair is nicely made. The distressed wood legs are a nice touch. Although, one was slightly shorter. I had to adjust this on my own. I would order this chair again. I do wish the colors on the Internet could be more accurate. This chair would be great in a small space, reading nook, office, or even kitchen/dining. It is not intrusive visually and adds a lot of style!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I am an interior designer and thought I would take the gamble. Others had said the color was darker than it appears on the site...they were correct. It is probably two shades darker. Also, it leans towards the greeny-gold color range.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The upholstery quality is fair. Lots of puckering, tho. Which really takes away from the sleekness of the design. All in all a beautiful chair and super firm and comfy. There is lots of extra support under the seat. Nicely built. The distressed wood legs are a nice touch. If you have animals, beware. The fabric easily pulls.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description on site.
I got two of these St. Charles Willow Chairs. Be careful of the color because it is more of a light green color with touches of gold. All the colors are light though. The style of the chair when you see it in person is more of a retro fifty's modern take. It is neat in that way. The legs of the chair in the picture is not accurate either. Once you open the box you find that the legs of the chair has more of a reclaimed wood look to it and it is a lighter wood color with some white, but only as a reclaimed look. I thought it was a nice surprise. For me, it made the chair look more expensive and custom. The quality on the chair I would say is fair for the price, it isn't the greatest but it is certainly not going to break down. As far as comfort goes. I would say it is semi comfortable. As in guests would be comfortable enough to sit down for awhile and talk, but if you think you are going to buy it and curl up in it and read a good book do not buy this chair. Basically, it is just for "pretty" and for light conversations for guests to sit on. So, I bought it for looks, style, and for guests to sit on - not for me to sit and watch tv or read.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is adequate
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Okay
These chairs arrived quickly with all needed parts. They were a little darker than what the picture online showed. But, I love the color and it actually made the chairs look more expensive. They are sturdy and comfortable. I would highly recommend. No one will ever guess I got them for such a great deal!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of the chairs was a little darker than what was shown online, but I like it better!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality
I just got two of these chairs for my office. Based on other reviews I was expecting a sort of pea green color, but they are 100% gold. Not a bit of green in them and absolutely nothing at all like the photo. Just so you have some idea of the color, I would say it is similar to the Benjamin Moore color Showtime. These chairs are very deep. My feet do not touch the ground when I sit all the way back in them, but that might be a good thing if you want to put a throw pillow on it.
Assembly was easy although a bit time consuming and they have a very chemically odor that I anticipate will fade. The construction on these chairs is horrible. It is nothing but a chunk of foam on top of webbing and the frame is a bit hard under your legs. But I don't expect great construction quality in inexpensive chairs. Because of that, I would never recommend this as an everyday chair. It works in my office as a guest chair and it would be fine as an occasional chair but I can't see these chairs lasting for very long with regular use.
They have great style though and I like that they are wider than many similar chairs so there is plenty of room to sit in them.
I have no complaints about the chair itself, it is a nicely designed and manufactured chair, my problem is with the delivery. The chair comes in an L-shaped box which does not transport well at all. I ordered more than one of these and each of the boxes were opened at more than one seam. There were some strange fabric discoloration/abrasions that could have come from shipping but it is hard to tell. They werent bad enough to bother me so I kept them. Overstock was great with customer service when I called to inquire about the chair.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not at all, it is a muted lime green
Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice quality, the stitching was a bit off in some places but not enough to matter
How can the width of the seat be the same as the chair when it has arms? The seat width does not include the arms. This is where a person sits. Will someone please check with the warehouse or whoever sent the chair to Overstock and give a more accurate answer?thepersonalshopper on Jan 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
