This chair looked charming and arrived well-packaged and in a timely manner. The design, however, is defective. There is nothing to connect or support the cushions to the metal frame but small screws that have to be perfectly lined up to screw in. Two major problems: first, the screws have short threading and the holes don't line up so the frame cannot be securely screwed to the cushions: second, there is no frame under the cushions, just in the arm area, so I can't imagine how this chair could support any weight even if it could be fitted together. We struggled to make it work but realized that even if we could force it together, it would collapse one day, so we returned it for a full refund--thanks Overstock for your help there! My recommendation is not to buy this chair. Cute but poorly constructed and designed.

I really love this chair. I purchased two and have used them for the past six months. They were pretty difficult to assemble - not impossible, obviously, but they each took me a good hour, mostly figuring out how to line everything up properly and then hold it together and screw in. Part of the problem was I had the cushion upside down at first; it's a little tricky because you can't immediately tell. Once together - I loved them. The style is gorgeous, and they hold up well. My "good" rating rather than "excellent" comes from the assembly difficulty, but mostly because I've noticed after months of use - and not daily, because this isn't a busy household (hence white chairs!) that there is a little bit of sag to the bottom of the chairs. It's possible that would be the case with any chair that doesn't have a constructed bottom. I will say I notice it, but it's likely no one else does because they don't look at them every day. Even with that, would I buy them again? YES. I'm sorry to see they don't carry them or aren't at the moment, because I would replace these with new ones in a heartbeat if I needed to. To sum up: Excellent style, excellent look, good price, good quality.
