With their elegant microfiber upholstery and warm cherry-finished wooden legs, these padded dining room chairs upgrade the look of any room. The set of two chairs is designed with coil springs, which provide a comfortable seating experience....more
I have had these chairs for two years and they are still like new. I have a two year old who eats at them and the stains come right up. They are easy to clean and very sturdy even after the abuse of being knocked over many times by my toddler.
As others have said, these chairs are a great value, look good and are quite comfortable. I ordered 6. At first I wasn't sure what all the fuss was about regarding assembly - the front legs go on effortlessly. The rear legs, not so much. After struggling w/the first, I was dreading doing 5 more. With a friend's help, we got it done, some went a little easier than others, but overall it was definitely not fun. Some tips...you have to jiggle the rear legs while you're threading the screws (7 on the rear), I found it somewhat easier to use a drill w/hex driver once threaded in, but the screws are soft metal and will strip easily if you muscle it. I'm glad it's done!
I love the look of these chairs--they look more expensive than they were, and they are super-comfortable. I also love the size. Many of the comparable chairs on the site had comments regarding the seat being too narrow. The seats on these are nice and wide, and the chairs seem really nice and stable for those with a larger backside and a few extra pounds.
The assembly wasn't as bad as I was expecting, but perhaps that's because I've had extensive dealings with Ikea products. The first chair took about 45 minutes, with a few F-Bombs dropped here and there when things didn't screw in correctly. The second only took about 15 minutes, and was a PG-13 experience. I've included some tips below, which will hopefully prevent your own F-Bombs.
- I assembled completely on my own, only getting help on the final step of tightening everything, as your fingers get a little crampy using the little allan wrench; I think having more than one hands on it at a time would be more of a hindrance than a help.
- I sat on the floor with the seat on my lap to put on the front legs--this was relatively easy.
- After putting on the front legs, I sat on the floor with the back of the chair on my lap, legs on either side of my waist, situated so the holes in the wood were face around the area of my knees.
- I put the seat in place lining up the dowel to the hole, using my arms and hands to hold the seat flush in place while putting in and turning bolts.
- I put in all of the bolts at once, before tightening any of them to make sure they were all lined up (I learned this after screwing the entire seat on the first one, then finding out that the final bolt was completely unaligned).
- When screwing in, the trick is to hold the seat in place and flush to the holes. It's a little tricky, but not that hard.
Hope the tips help. I highly recommend these chairs and hope you love them as much as I do!

These chairs were ordered to match ones I had purchased at xxxxxx several years ago. A perfect match and excellent quality made me thrilled to get these. We've gone through 5 grandbabies and there isn't anything that they can do to these chairs that can't be cleaned off. We've had spaghetti sauce, chocolate and ink pen even drawn in a bullseye that came out with just water or a little dish soap and water.

The chairs look really nice and they were not that hard to assemble once I got the first completed. The scfrews are very near the same length but they are not interchangeable so line them up before you start. The directions are not that specific. It would be better to have 2 people to put them together but I managed by myself with a few contortions. Use a power screw driver as the small tool that comes with the chairs does not tighten fully unless you are extremely strong.
I had so looked forward to these chairs... They are comfortable and look great with my new table... But, one chair has one leg shorter than all the others... They look like with a lot of use they will not hold up.... And stability of the chairs is a serious concern. This is so SAD. It took me 3 months to find the perfect chair. Then only to discover that the quality and workmanship is poor.
I first ordered the set of 2 so I could check out quality and color. First 2 arrived in excellent time and packaging was intact. Upon assembly, 1 of the chairs had a shorter assembly leg. Took it apart and reassembled in opposite order, no help there then measured everything. Leg length, depth of insertion, measured everything and all measurements were exact. Only thing I can guess is angle of screw entry. Anyway the difference was about 3/8 inch and wobble still there so I had to add a piece of wood to bottom of one leg (shape it glue it and stain it to match) to make it sit without wobble and sit level. Even after all that I ordered another set to make out the set of 4. Next set arrived excellent time and packaged very well. Assembly on first one went OK for 3 legs then last leg bolt, I could not get to start no matter how I angled it. Took apart to see what was stopping the entry of last screw. A staple was down inside the bolt entry area so had to use needle nose pliers to pull out, after it was out bolt went right in. These next 2 did not have any wobble. Yay! So all in all I have a set of 4 chairs that I am pleased with since the comfort of the seat is excellent. The coil seat is more comfortable than just a cushioned seat. Color is same as pictured. I would call it a light taupe tan. Patience is of the utmost in assembly. Finger start all bolts and then easily tighten in rotating order till all are tight. If all goes well as it did on 2 of the assemblies it takes about 10 minutes per.
I bought four of these chairs. I thought they were very difficult to put together and had to ask a family member to help me. I immediately put white slip covers on them, so I can't address the quality of the fabric. All four had one leg that was slightly shorter and I had to put a felt pad on each. I like the shape of the chairs and the slip covers look really nice on them.
Which of the pics posted accurately reflects the color of the legs? Are they a dark cherry like the 3rd pic with the table, or lighter cherry like the rest?ifeoma88 on Dec 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello ifeoma88, the color is the lighter cherry color. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 30, 2013
I would say they are dark. I have a dark teak table and they match so well you would think I bought them together. They are beautiful chairs but I had a hard time putting them together since some of the holes didn't match up. I live in a building so I had the super put a couple together, the other two I didn't have a problem with. All and all they are worth buying.marmar8 on Feb 1, 2014
How is the chair constructed? Is it with springs? If so, how many springs are in the seat?cardie54 on Dec 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cardie54, the chair is constructed of poplar wood with a foam seat. We are checking to see about the number of springs and will update as soon as we have that information. The assembly includes attaching front legs to the seat and then the back w/legs to the seat. The chair is currently out of stock, but we hope to have new inventory about mid January. Thank you for your questions. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 12, 2013
Hello cardie54, the chairs seat cushions have three springs in addition to the foam. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 13, 2013
I ordered 6 of these chairs because the description listed the depth at 20 inches. My daughter just pointed out that there are questions about the depth of the seat on this website. Customercare gave answers of 19 inches deep and 17 inches deep. What is the correct measurement? Also it is the measurement of just the seat part or does the 'depth' include the back of the chair? thank you.nonnie53 on Nov 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello nonnie53, We confirm the seat depth is 17 inches. We apologize for the previous answer with misinformation. Thank you for shopping with us.

This chair looks great, but I think it could use more padding in the seat if people sit on it a long time. The seat depth is comfortable for me and I am 5'6"dmh1218 on Nov 21, 2013
Is there an official weight capacity for these chairs? I'd want to know that before I make a purchase, and the answer below seems more anecdotal than official. Thanks!emlp on Jul 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I can't give you an official answer but I've had these chairs for about 5 years now and they have accommodated everyone including some very heavy people (I don't know their exact weights). However, once a year I do have to tighten the bolts that hold the legs to the chair frames. Hope that helps.shorebnd on Jul 31, 2013

Although the legs are kind of cherry in color they do not call attention to themselves - but rather blend in well with other darker furniture or a wood floor. I have both. Love these chairs!mitchna5 on Mar 21, 2013
I'm concerned about how easy these are to keep clean or clean stains. I plan on using them for the kitchen, so they will have daily use.ritavb on Jan 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes this is easy to clean, you can just use a gentle soap. Make sure not to use a colored wash cloth. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 10, 2013

I recently purchased these chairs and love them. We ordered 2 initially to test out color match and style for our dining room. However shortly after setting them up my dogs were playing and broke one of the legs off. I could possibly set the leg and fix it allbeit not perfect, but I would like to know if I could purchase a replacement leg?m3yowell on Aug 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
