I ordered these chairs and the bench for a distressed farm dining table my husband made. I was looking for a dark country distressed look and that's exactly what I got. These chairs look like they were made for the table. They are very solid and a very good price. We are so pleased.
Great product, sturdy, attractive and comfortable. Looks expensive. EASY to assemble if you read directions. Key: 3 different size screws. Make certain you understand which goes where. PLUS, short screw should not be totally tightened down to leave wiggle room when attaching other parts. Tighten short screw last!!!! Husband put chairs together in 15 minutes.
My husband does woodwork and furniture building. He built us a farm table with a bench for one side for the kids and we wanted the right chairs and after many furniture stores and much research online we decided on these. I can not tell you how great these look. They feel like high quality and four chairs went together in an hour with no problems. We had our order in less than a week and they were very reasonable. We could not recommend these more highly.
It is hard to tell via computer screen what the chairs actually looked like(color, size, etc) but when they arrived they were perfect. Assembly was easy and the finished product was a bit larger than I thought, but seating is comfortable and stable. Seven of the eight chairs arrived without damage. After contacting Customer Service and a month's wait, I now have eight perfect chairs that I love. My thanks to the Customer Service representatives who worked diligently to remedy the situation. The long delay(3 wks) was due to the warehouse waiting for new shipment of my style of chair. But as soon as it came in, they shipped the replacement part to me ASAP. Bravo!!! Look forward to many years of enjoyment.
This was part of my first ever order from Overstock which included a pedestal table. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of both items and the way they complemented each other. The chairs are very comfortable to sit one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly as pictured.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be outstanding
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? extremely accurate.
The packaging for these chairs was minimal with styroform about 1/2 inch thick. One chair had a piece of wood missing at the bottom of the leg. It was in the box. I know Overstock would have replaced it but I just glued it back. The chairs themselves seem fine, but the wood is so soft that just banging a leg against something makes a mark.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color matched.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The wood is pine so it is somewhat soft.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Desription on the site was accurate.
I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase of these chairs through Overstock.com!! I couldn't have found and didn't find more of a perfect match for my table. Delivery and customer service of shipment and tracking was spectacular! Thank You for making an online purchase so easy!
Very happy with the chairs. Liked them so much, I bought the entire dining table set with six more chairs.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little darker than I thought. But, very nice.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very solid. Nice padded seats. Heavy.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
Little stiff when you first sit on them, will take some time to break them in. However, theyre really nice chairs..except the legs are all uneven so almost all of mine don't sit on the ground. I just put those felt things on the bottom of the legs, good as new.
"I like the chairs, but they are not sturdy. We keep having to tighten them up because they get wobbly. One of the chairs was damaged and they did replace the damaged part quickly. However, it seems with just scooting the chairs in to the table, several of them have developed little nicks. The chairs were easy to assemble."
The chair looks good when put together with the quality of the finishes being decent. The wood used is pretty light and it's durability over time will be the biggest unknown. Overall though I would recommend it. My one tip would be that when it is assembled, do not fully tighten the screws. Sit on it first where you plan on using it, then tighten the screws. Doing this will level the chair and will prevent it from being uneven.
We have had these for a little over a year now. Very easy to put together and, on the whole, I am pleased with them. However a couple of things......we eat at the dining table every evening and the cushions are definitely getting a little flat. I will probably have to re-upholster to give them a boost in a year or so. Also the screws on the seats don't seem to "bite" as well as I would like. Keep a little screwdriver (that comes with the hardware) in a handy place so that you can tighten them up every few weeks.
