Love these chairs. Fell in love with metal chairs on another website but couldn't justify the cost. Found these and ordered 3 pairs (6 total). The chairs arrived in just 3 days! They were packaged really well and were in excellent condition. I paired them with a dark oak table and they look wonderful. They are not matte, however; as another reviewer pointed out, they have a shiny/glossy appearance, but that doesn't bother me at all.
Best of all, my 2-year-old can spill all he wants and it just wipes up. We've used these chairs every day for nearly a month now and no scratches, dents, dings, etc. And the seat is wide enough to accommodate my 6-month-old's booster seat/high chair (which straps quite securely around the back as well).
Good value, awesome customer service =o)
I really spent weeks reviewing consumer comments on various styles, materials and price points before deciding on purchasing these chairs. I am extremely pleased with my purchase for the following reasons:
1. Color was "spot on" when inspecting them in person
2. Delivery was swift and everything arrived safely without the slightest damage
3. These chairs are solid and sturdy, welded nicely, no sharp edges, yet they arent heavy clunkers.
4. I have several large family members and chair holds 250-300lb without incident
5. Size is perfect for my smaller style kitchen. The backs peep over the table maybe 8-10 inches, rather than the 14-16 inches my windsor back chairs did, so ultimately, my kitchen looks more spacious.
6. What can I say about clean-up? Ahhhhh, easy breezy!! Spill something, drip something, just wipe it off clean. No staining like on my Whitewashed Windsors.
7. The price point really was amazing for the quality. Usually you get what you pay for; this time, "we consumers" come out on top because the cost is very deceiving in regards to the quality of these chairs.
Well done, Overstock!!!!!!! Thank you!
Lastly, I have back issues, problems with discs, so again, I was really surprised when I could feel the backs of these chairs supporting my weary back in all the right places. I could sit in these chairs for hours and never complain. Possibly the wide contoured seats, combined with the mid back support that hits ever so comfortably across the middle to upper back, is the secret to these really great chairs.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was exactly what was displayed on website, no surprises!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Really Excellent Quality and Value!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? OS was "dead on" with their description of this product.
My family and I are very pleased with these chairs. We have been wanting aluminum navy style chairs to go with our antique pedestal table. They are, however, insanely expensive! I found these and ordered just one set at first to make sure they would work. I was unsure about the "steel silvertone". When they came in, I was VERY pleased. They are a little darker than aluminum chairs (as per the pictures), but I think the deeper color is actually better. They provide the right look without taking over the decor. Also, the description didn't include weight so I was a little worried that, being steel, they would be too heavy. They are actually just right... about the same weight as the worn-out wooden chairs they are replacing only they are completely welded together and therefore not rickety at all with no danger of becoming so. I have 3 teenage boys, and I believe these will stand the abuse that comes with big boys. I went on to order 2 more sets to complete our set of six.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It appeared to be exact.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy, comfortable chairs. No assembly required/totally welded at every joint! Well packaged.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Extremely accurate with the exception that weight was omitted.
These are steel chairs, not aluminum like the originals. They are heavier than the originals, which is nice (they don't tip as easily). The shape is also not as refined as the original naval chairs. The front corners of the seats are fairly pointy, and the undersides of the seats are sharp where your hands go when you pull the chair in. Overall, decent quality for the price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good -- chairs are a little darker
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good

I was excited to find these navy look alikes, but I was really sad when they arrived. Overstock did send them quickly, but the box was really beat up. I opened the box and found that 6 of the 8 foot pads were already broken. Both chairs also had dents in the seats. The sides of the chairs are sharp...and the welds are horrible. They look really, really cheap....I mean, really cheap! They have a weird gray colored paint that is covered with a clearcoat. Not even close to the originals. The picture looks a thousand times better than what you get in person. If you are looking for a navy replica- this is not it...not even close! Overstock was great about taking them back....no problem at all. Wish this product was as good as their customer service, LOL.
I love these chairs - Price was excellent - Quality is very good - Very comfortable, had a dinner party and we sat for three hours - I put them around a black, round pedestal table - A nice contrast which gave the antique table an edgy, designer look for a fraction of the designer cost - At first the low backs surprised me, they extend 7.5 inches above the table, but now I like them much better then the high back chairs they replaced.- My condo is small and the low, open backs give a feeling of space The gray matt color looks great with my white and stainless kitchen - Some welds on the legs are a bit lumpy, not rough, just lumpy, but the construction is very good and chairs are solid and level - They are not aluminum like the $$$$$ designer model, but are not heavy and with the slides on the legs they slide easily and do not scratch my hardwood floors - They came packaged two to a box with the right amount of protective material to keep them in perfect condition for shipping - I live on the fourth floor and they were delivered right to my door. - I know these chairs were originally designed to be used on navy submarines which explains the comfortable seats and solid base. - Good design is good deign and will last for ever.
These chairs were the result of massive searching for the perfect chair for an eating counter. They needed to hold up to use by kids and husband and they do! They are super easy to clean (I didn't want fussy legs that would be hard to wipe milk spills). They seem pretty much indestructible, perhaps vulnerable to scratches, but none yet. They are quite comfortable to sit in with plenty of space for adult behinds. The low profile sits perfectly at the counter.
The down-side is that they are loud. Think stacking auditorium chairs. When you bump them together or even worse, drop a spoon, on them it gives a significant clang. The corners of the chair are quite pointed, so if you hang your leg off the corner, it wouldn't be comfortable. Kids have complained a bit about them being hard and cold.
They arrived well-packed, but as I was pulling out the first chair of eight, I managed to cut myself on a very sharp edge of metal on the bottom of the seat. It was the only chair that had that edge, which seemed to have missed being trimmed off in the factory. Since it is on the underside, I didn't worry about sending it back.
Overall, pleased with quality, functionality, and appearance.
Love these chairs, I use them at my dining table. Love the color and the finish, and they are easy clean up with kids. They are sturdy and can take the abuse of an active family. I buy two at a time, until I get my full set of 8!
Bought 2 sets of these chairs for our breakfast room to match a vintage 1950s dinette table. They look great and are solid and comfortable to sit in. Not too heavy, not too light. Arrived in good shape, though shipping took forever (but at least it was free!). Only problem was one of the plastic feet had popped out, but we could fix it. Since they are metal they can be cold to sit on, which is not a big deal. They can be loud as you pull them across the floor. The metal can make the sound echo underneath. All in all great chairs though and I am happy we bought them.
Hi cmartin33, we were able to verify this information with our support team. The seat dimensions are 16 inches W x 15 inches D x 17 inches H. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 21, 2014
