I don't give 5 star reviews but this product was very good. Assembly was pretty easy, though I used my own set of Allen wrenches as opposed to the ones that came with the chairs. As mentioned in other reviews the holes are a little difficult to line up. With a little patience, everything does eventually fit together. Sometimes the faux leather and batting got in the way of the bolt going in smoothly. I had to trim the material around the bolt holes at times. When together the chair were very sturdy. I had one leg that was not manufactured well and split when I tightened the bolt into the leg. I called Overstock and they sent replacement legs immediately. The chairs look very good and match our table well. Note that it is not stated exactly what color these chairs are. In partial light they appear to be black. In bright sunlight, however, these chairs are definitely BROWN. I would say a dark espresso color describes them best. They suit our purposes even though we were looking for black chairs. The quality is good and they look great.
I love my new chairs- they look great, are fairly comfortable and feel sturdy. A little advice... follow the directions exactly as written when assembling. I thought I would save time and leave the chairs on their sides when tightening the legs. This made them wobbly! Save yourself the trouble and leave the chairs upright when tightening the legs- it is quite a chore, but worth it to ensure your chairs feel solid and sturdy.
This was my first time puchasing furniture online. I could not be happier with this purchase. Don't let the price fool you. The chairs have very elegant lines and a beautiful curve along the back. They are comfortable and easy to keep clean. They have a substantial weight to them and give new life to an old family heirloom table that I could not part with.
I received these chairs in the mail today, only 1 business day after ordering! Can't beat that, especially with cheap shipping! On top of that, these chairs are very easy to assemble. Take them straight from to my old table. I am SO pleased with this purchase. The chairs look elegant and look like they cost way more than this price (especially the sale!). They match my decor exactly and are very comfortable. I am extremely pleased with these chairs.
I was concerned that the chairs might not have good cushioning - but we are pleased that they are quite comfortable. Assembly was easy and the legs are fairly well balanced. These chairs are a good buy.

I recently purchased a table from Craigslist and needed new chairs to make an upscale look. These parson's chairs really add style! To make sure the chairs were what we wanted, we ordered just two to begin with and then added another four more once we saw the quality. Before purchasing them, I read the reviews and discovered several people having trouble putting them together. I was a bit worried, but shouldn't have been. The chairs come in pairs, knocked down, in a strong cardboard box. A wrench is included so you don't even have to use your own tools. My husband and I put them together in about half an hour with absolutely no problems whatsoever. First, you really do need to have two people.... one to hold the chair back and one to use the wrench to tighten the bolts. Second, make sure that you read the instructions carefully and then lay out all your bolts before you start. There are several different sizes for different areas of the chair. You DON'T want to get them mixed up so put them together based on sizes. Third, put the chair together and then go back and tighten all the bolts. It seems to work better that way. The only thing I could complain about was that in the last batch of chairs we ordered, the stain on the back legs of one chair didn't closely match the others. Once we put it together, though, you didn't really notice it at all. I'm a perfectionist! I will always know it's different, even if my guests never get under the table to look for it! I probably could have called the company, but frankly didn't want the hassle... My husband said he didn't really notice it at all....so there you have it. The chairs are priced right, very comfortable, stylish, and easy to assemble. Go for it!
For the price, these were a good addition to my daughter's NYC grad-school apartment with minimal space. They are full-sized dining chairs, but with a streamlined design. They feel reasonably sturdy, and it's comfortable to sit in them. For the price, and for the faux leather, they were a good choice for a tight budget. My daughter assembled them using her apartment-sized toolkit, with no problems. I'm happy I purchased them.
The chairs look very similar to the photo online, no surprise. They had all the pieces and were easy to put together until the final two screws, I needed to get a second person to help with with that. I have them in my kitchen in my breakfast nook and they look very nice

We were happy to receive these two good quality Parson Side Chairs. They are comfortable and they look rich. I agree with the other reviewers, they were a challenge to put together but well worth the work.

Hello cjf22 several reviews state the legs are walnut and they go well with mahogany. Another reviewer states the legs are a medium color wood that perfectly matches their medium oak table. It sounds like the color of the legs will go well with other woods. We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 25, 2014
Some of the older reviews said the chairs are actually dark brown. Is there any way to verify they are truly black? If they come and look brown when I ordered black do I have to pay to ship them back?rlmds on Dec 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello rlmds, the chairs are a very dark brown, close to black. If you need a true black, these will not work for you. Thank you for checking with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 17, 2013
