AFTER ordering these chairs, I read many customer reviews- some great, and some not so flattering. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous to see them in person. Well, I didn't have to wait long- my order was placed Saturday night, and the chairs arrived on Thursday. They were well packed, and in PERFECT condition. The finish is nicer than expected (nice warm patina on the metal, with slight variations in the finish) and they seem to be very well made. I was also concerned about the size of the seat, since some reviewers found them to be a tight fit- I am 5'9" and full in the booty :) and these are nice and comfy for me, as well as my 6'2" husband. One SMALL SAFETY CONCERN to mention if you have small children or pets in your house: there are 4 small rubbery "pegs" inserted underneath the cross-braces of each chair, below the seats. You can't see them unless you flip the chairs over, and they don't have any use I can determine. You may want to remove and discard these, as they seem to be a potential choking hazard. One of them fell out while I was unpacking the chairs, or I wouldn't have even noticed them.

I wanted some of these popular metal chairs for our new house. This was a great deal. A set of 4 for the price of one at other places. I am using them in my dining room. Make sure you check out the dimensions. I love they way they look--a very neutral gunmetal color. No assembly required and arrived within a week packaged snugly.

I stalked Overstock for 2 months waiting for these chairs to come back in stock and I almost gave up. I scoured the internet looking for something similar but everything was 3-4x as much. I'm glad I waited! These chairs perfectly complement the industrial, farmhouse aesthetic I was going for.
Like other reviews have said, these are on the small side. I'm 5'1" 100lbs and even I felt like the arms were hugging me. They are comfortable enough, probably not for hours but fine for dinner. The backs of the chairs are somewhat low-profile which I like. I would prefer them better if the arms didn't extend so far out -- for one they enclose you in and they don't tuck under the table very far. I somewhat expected this from the pictures, so it's not a deal-breaker.
They have an uneven glaze that gives them a unique, tarnished look. The only defect is a drip of black glaze (or paint?) down the back of one chair. I was disappointed to see that, but my husband had already unpacked them for me. They come very well packed so trying to fit them back in the box to return was going to be a pickle. I put that chair on the side of the table that I don't see everyday -- hopefully I forget about it. :)

Please tell us about the quality of the product. They appear to be very well made. I'm a petite person, but the chairs don't seem to wiggle or creak at all.

We have a small apartment that's always filled with projects. We've avoided having any dining table for years but finally found a good folding table and these stacking chairs. They tuck perfectly into a little nook when we're not entertaining, but look super sleek out.

I love these chairs because of the price, look, and color. They were the perfect addition to my kitchen table so it was more casual than my formal dining table which sits within view. They are definitely metal and make that metal ting sound when you move them, but that doesn't bother me. I like the small arms because it's enough to hold my 2 yr old even though I don't particularly trust him on chairs by himself quite yet. As occasional chairs they're great, but if I were planning on using them every day for all meals I may consider a cushion for bum comfort. They really do have a nice curve to them though along the back so they're surprisingly more comfortable than I expected.

I have to say, I was skeptical that the quality would measure up at this price, but it truly does and I'm in love with these chairs (so much so I'm going to order a second set). Nice vintage patina look that goes nicely with my rustic/modern decor. I have a farmhouse style table from Pottery Barn, and they go very nicely. Plus they are sturdy and easy to clean. What more could you want?! You get more than you pay for on this deal.
These chairs do exactly what they are made for. They look super stylish and provide nice seating. The value is great! Don't expect something super comfortable with these as they are metal hard chairs. But they seem to be very sturdy and function well. Really you are buying these for the look and they are very nice. I bought the vintage finish and they go great with my mahogany farmhouse table. We are using these for the middle 4 chairs with 2 end chairs that are upholstered. These are much better than the Target brand ones I first bought (these are quite a bit taller and sturdier).
Love these chairs with my farmhouse table. Surprisingly comfortable, though a little cold on my bum. Not for tall or big people. Probably best for people 5'8-9" and under 200 lbs. My dad is 6'1, 195 and he said they were a little small for him to sit comfortably (low to the ground, so his knees hit under the table).
I bought 80 of these chairs for my restaurant. The arms break off and the legs bend very easily. The paint chips off. These can not stand up to commercial use. I am having to replace all of them after 14 months. They are for light use only.

I don't want to scratch my floors. I see that they do have some protection on the bottom of the legs, but is it really hard plastic or rubber?amyp4 on Nov 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

I bought the little self-stick felt pads and added them to the bottom of both the stools and the chairs. They slide perfectly on my hardwood floors.susanx1961 on Nov 21, 2013

I doubt they will fit under your table. We have a standard height table (29") and the arms don't clear the table apron by a good 2-3 inches of height. Maybe if you had the table on casters or something to raise it up.efmolly on May 6, 2013
