I ordered a pair to start because I wasn't sure if the chairs were going to look like what I envisioned. They exceeded my expecations! The leather is smooth dark chocolate with wood legs of dark mahogany. They look great with my expresso dining table. The seat is very comfortable - I was worried that they'd be hard and uncomfortable. Also, it took my husband no time to put together. I ordered 6 more today!
Despite previous reviews, I thought that these chairs were easy to assemble. They didn't take long, but they did take some patience and balancing. They are VERY comfortable, and heavier than some other chairs that I had looked at--which is a good sign of quality furniture. Disagreeing with other descriptions, I would describe the wood as a regular mahogany color with red undertones--not dark mahogany (makes you imagine more of a deeper, espresso hue). I am not 100% sure that they are real leather. The description says they are, but the content on the chair itself leads me to believe otherwise. Regardless, I like them enough!
I've had these chairs now for 4 months. They are easy to clean, beautiful, and comfortable. But over time, the bolts that you tighten to put the chair together have loosened. So I had to retighten all of the bolts after 3-4 months of use since I noticed the legs were beginning to wobble and the backs were beginning to move. Also, we have a 4 year old that has knocked the chair over numerous times by simply standing in it and putting a little too much weight on the back of the chair. Because of the way the back is angled, it can easily cause the chair to fall backwards. My child has not been injured, but it is something for someone with small children to be aware of. We use these chairs daily. Just hope they last.

These chairs are a great deal----they are easy to put together, are narrow enough to fit well into small rooms, and have a great detail on the back that you can't really see on the picture.
I'd recommend them!
The chairs were shipped fast and arrived fast as well. For the most part they were easy to assemble with exception of one chair that did not have a one of it's holes drilled. Could be a problem if you are not handy with tools. One of the chair bottoms had been patched up with staples that were right on the side of the chair. I contacted Overstock and they sent out a replacement chair bottom within a couple of days. Also, the chairs can be wobbly on hard surfaces because of how the parts fit together. It takes some tweeking and shimming to get them perfect. On carpet they are close enough. So, apart from those minor problems, the chairs look very nice and guests of mine have guessed they cost $300 to $400 a piece. They are very confortable. I was hoping the legs would have been darker, but they are more of dark cherry. The leather (not "real", but bicast) is a dark chocolate brown and looks very rich. I would recommend these chairs to anyone who wants a rich, contemporary, and classy looking parson chair on a budget. The curved back sets them apart from all the others out there.
These are lovely chairs. My only complaint is that they don't scoot back very easily and may tip over when you are standing and trying to move it back.
Don't get me wrong, we love these chairs. They are very comfortable and look high end.

Having bought six without seeing them, I was nervous about what I would get, but I am very happy with them. They are exactly as stated and seem to be stable. They sit on a thick carpet, so not being exactly level is not an issue. They recommend before tightening bolts, you level, but if on a thick carpet, you don't have to worry as muck.

After my husband broke one of our kitchen chairs, chose these as a replacement.
The Good: Solid, sturdy, comfy, easy to clean. We are all VERY happy to sit on these in the AM, and friends think we must have also replace the table and the light fixture (we didn't) as they make a BIG impression.
The PITA - Assembly was a real adventure. Must have taken us 3 hours to fit all the screws into place - you're seating long screws blindly, and it's very hard to hold everything into JUST the correct position/angle to do this. However - considering the number/length/size of the screws, these babies are NEVER coming apart.
But we were successful, and are very pleased!
