Initially these chairs look good, I bought 10 chairs and I thought they were the answer to my very long table. They are a little difficult to put together but not too bad, No wonder the Warranty is for only for 30 days and limited. I have had these chairs for about 9 months and there are definite problems. The wood for the top piece splits. They chip very easily and the finish has to be touched up fairly regularly. Put a shopping bag on the seat and there is a scratch. I don't have children and I live alone and these chairs have had really light use. Some have never even been sat on but you even look at these chairs wrong--there is a chip. I am extremely disappointed. Don't be taken in by all the other reviews they didn't give enough time for the defects to show up..
Luckily, my husband is a very experienced assembler because we found no instructions in the box of chairs. He put the chairs together with no problems; however, the lack of instructions could definitely cause some folks problems. The chairs are strudy, attractive and comfortable. The seats are a medium brown, not a cherry color. This is somewhat disappointing since I plan to use them with a cherry table. I like the chairs enough to use them anyway-I think they will look ok. The lack of instructions and the seat color not being the advertised color, cause me to rate the chairs 4 stars rather than 5 stars.
These chairs are very nice. They are heavy quality and were exactly what I was looking for. They were fairly easy to put together, even though there seemed like lots of nuts and bolts. I did it myself...my boyfriend was impressed. Just make sure you put the frame with the 6 holes for the screws pointing down, not up. Had to re-put it together when I relaized that the screws hold the seat in place. There are no holes in the seat, but the screws gently screw in just enough to hold them. May need a battery charged screwdriver if not strong for this. Other than that, very easy and beautiful. One small issue was that one of the frames had a small crack that really couldn't be seen, but didn't affect the quality of the chair and wasn't worth sending back. Just make sure you check out all chairs before accepting.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good
Love the chairs and they match our *** round pedestal table beautifully. The price is terrific, best I could find. Delivery was a breeze too.
After putting them together however we noticed that they were really rocking back and forth. The legs were uneven on 2 of the 4 chairs.
We ended up having the front legs swapped out via O's excellent CS. They are still a little wobbly because the back legs were actually also uneven. Ugh.
The construction otherwise is great and solid. Love the distressing and 2 tone look although I do have cushions on them. Agree with another reviewer about the little feet under the chair legs. Nice touch and will prevent the legs from becoming beat up over time.
Pretty easy to put together. Took about 15-20 minutes per chair, if that. Hope this is helpful!
I love my new chairs! They look terrific with a table I refinished. The only think I was disappointed in was some slight damage to 2 of the chairs due to poor packaging. I ordered 3 sets of 2. We decided it wouldn't be worth paying shipping back and chose to overlook the slight damage but wish they were perfect. Other than that - we were very pleased with the delivery time and the quality of chair for the price. Thanks overstock!
I really love the style of these chairs and they look great in my new kitchen, BUT we had problems getting four without defects. The first two sets each had a bad chair. One did not sit straight and the other had defects where the cross pieces attached to the back. Overstock sent two replacements and told us to use "parts" but screws started stripping when attempting to take the two bad chairs apart. Decided to just put the two replacements they sent at no charge (very nice!) together and just pick the best four of the six.
NOW we have to disassemble the two bad chairs and somehow get back into the box and ship back. We have hours of assembly and now have to attempt to take them apart. They are a good value, look great but expect to do some time consuming work.
these chairs are very nice. they do have the marks that other purchasers describe but I don't think that is a big deal. one of my chairs had a break in the braid which is only slightly noticeable but takes away from a 5 star review. the table is not so great, the wood is soft and nicks easily also it gets kind of wobbly
The chairs looked exactly like they do in the pictures online. Love the look! Was a little worried about assembly from the reviews I read but we had no problems putting them together. Great looking chair!
I have had these chairs for a couple of years. They are heavy and have held up well. They have a fairly large seat area and are comfortable to sit on. They do scratch easy, but it just adds to the character. I do find the black are hard to clean. It can look streaky with using water or cleaning supplies. I have simiilar problems with other painted black furniture. This problem is not specific to these chairs.
I received 4 of these chairs today and do not see where there is a pre drilled hole in the seat to attach it to the frame. Surely they should have pre drilled holes. Thank Youmap53 on Jan 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
