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 am a size 14 and I just fit in this chair. Anyone larger should not purchase this. Also, the chair is very, very INDUSTRIAL--meaning scuffed, painted sloppily, and otherwise roughly finished. The cuts on the solid portion of the chair back are still somewhat sharp (not sanded out) and I was a bit shocked by that and glad I didn't cut myself getting the first one out of the box. I am returning the whole set. I was banking on something just a little better.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? actual product a bit lighter and golder toned.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not so hot. Back welds scuffed out and painted over sloppily, blob of paint on back center to cover defect.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK. Chair seat is very small.
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 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. :)

Just bought a drop leaf table at a consignment store and was looking for chairs that would match the scale. I'm adding a little of the industrial look to my transitional scheme and these work well. Decent quality and more comfortable than I thought they would be. Really welcomed the reviews others had posted. I'll be making some chair pads to add a little more style and comfort but these look nice. Thought I could possibly paint them in the future if I want to change them up. Great chairs for the price.
These chairs are fantastic! industrial, modern, and will truly last a lifetime. the seat is big (for my larger guests &obviously durable). you cannot beat this price. i paired it with a heavy farm table and 2 upholstered gray chairs on the end.. absolutely LOVE.
My apartment is somewhat of a vintage-contemporary blend and these chairs are perfect for the style. They require no assembly, and the finish is a warm, antiqued metallic colour - keep in mind the finish is industrial, and so there are plenty of imperfections, but it's part of the style - and thus not a problem for me. The metal seat base isn't the most comfortable (obviously), but it's easy to find inexpensive chair pads that make sitting on them perfectly comfortable for long periods. One of my chairs arrived with a damaged (bent) back rest piece, and Overstock quickly and without issue shipped me a new one - with no need to ship the broken one back, so overall I was impressed with the level of service I received as well. Like other metal items I've received from Overstock, the quality is never super high-end, and so some of the welds are a bit ugly (but not terribly noticeable given the 'industrial' nature of the items) though solid enough that I'm not worried about the structural integrity of the chairs. I think they're a perfect size (though neither my partner nor myself are particularly big people) and they add a lot of style to our dining room. All in all, I'd not hesitate to purchase again, especially for the really reasonable price point.
These are the same chairs you see on other websites for four times the price - they're gorgeous and sleek, the perfect addition for a modern dining set. I paired this with the Cable Grey Oak Finished Dining Table and they look fabulous together. Such a great bargain!
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.
We bought a set of these chairs to go with our farmhouse style dining table. We wanted to find chairs that were rustic/industrial looking but also comfortable and sturdy - these fit the bill perfectly. The color is great, a brown-bronze-copper that's not too dark. And the price for set of four was amazing - I saw similar chairs online at other sites where one chair would have run you as much as these 4 did together. I am extremely happy with this purchase.

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).
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.
