Like it says in the title - I could not be happier. I read all the reviews (yep all of them) and thought I knew what to expect - perhaps "a knock-off that wasn't quite the real thing but, hey, its cheap"! In fact it is a reproduction of the much more expensive French original, a reproduction that is all but perfect. (I also bought the counter stools - and have the same view of them - so the reviews are pretty much a cut and past copy!)
They are slick, comfortable, attractive and sturdy. The white powder coating is perfect with a very nice shine. They stack - but I don't want to stack them - they are so cute in their new gloss straight from the box!
No dents, scratches or flaws at all. The white paint job is crisp and bright. The packing was through and secure, I just loved them from the moment I unpacked them. And the price - what can one say except - sorry France, the design for these chairs may have originated in your land some 100 years ago but the current place to have them made is China. (Sorry, but its true). [You can check the French prices online vita *** dot com or at the French manufacturer's website)
If this style suits you (and its not for everyone - Grannies and certain suburbs - I mean you!) then you shouldn't hesitate, snap them up. I have mine in a minimalist - loft style place in the country in Northern California and I would post pix if I could.

Arrived quickly - no damage, very well packaged. Nice simple design, feel solid. Paint was almost perfect - on close inspection there are very minor imperfections but nothing to fret about. I use these on my patio - stack & cover after use to protect from UV damage. I also like that I can use indoors - the rubber feet are great will not scratch floor. When sacking there are rubber "bumpers" on the underside of each chat to protect from scratching. I like to live pretty minimal furniture wise - these are perfect since they work & look great indoor & outdoor. I imagine if you let them sit in the rain the welds will rust - but these can also be repainted easily years down the road - another plus. Seat size I do not end small and I'm 190lbs. Very please overall.

I just received my white chairs and I love them! They are kind of industrial/country/French all at once, and came without a scratch on them. I have been loving the Tolix chairs, but can't really afford the splurge at the moment. I really love the gunmetal vintage look, but the grey ones in this chair are smooth grey and not the antique look I want. I don't regret going with the white - they are sturdy and lovely! They will match my reclaimed wood farm table perfectly! I can't comment on their durability since they were just delivered, but don't hesitate to buy these if you are after the metal cafe chair look and want a bargain! Another score from Overstock...
I loved everything about these chairs...until I sat in them. I am 5'8" and of average weight, but my hips hit both arms of the chair. I really wanted to keep these chairs, but I had to return them because I knew I would not be able to eat my meals in them every day. So, unfortunately, because of this, I cannot recommend these chairs. Cute, but uncomfortable.

THE PROS: Nice design, comfortable for someone who's 5'8 and 135 lbs, fully assembled one piece design.
THE CONS: 3 out of 4 chairs have defects in enamel paint in that there are worn spots or large chips, may not be comfortable with someone with a larger frame as the sides are rather narrow.
Overall, I'll use them, and if they hadn't arrived damaged I'd probably give them 5 stars, but just know that you are taking your chances and may have to send them back.
Was hesitant to order these chairs after reading reviews saying they were small and hard to fit into. That is definitely not the case. I imagine if you are a very large person this might be the case, but it is more than enough room for an average size person. Chairs are comfortable enough for everyday use, the value is great, and they arrived undamaged and on time. Husband said they were easy to put together.
The only way I could be happier is if they were free.
Great style. Well made. Received faster than expected. Liked them so much I bought another pack of 4 in place of bench. Lots of compliments. Looks great in modern space with distressed table.
Great copies of the original. IF you have not seen the original, note that these are on the smaller size... as is the original design.
Love the look. On my outdoor courtyard. Have my coffee sitting in most mornings. Comfy for 1/2 hour...
NOT for a larger sized person. My husband is 6'4" and slender. Fine to share a cup of coffee but am sure he wouldn't be happy if they were all he had to choose from for everyday.

Is there a product that can be applied to the chairs to help keep them from rusting outdoors?dub442 on Jun 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question dub442. There are a few things you can do to keep your outdoor furniture in tip -top shape. Keep your outdoor furniture dry and covered. Store your outdoor furniture very carefully. In between keeping your outdoor furniture dry, covered and stored properly, apply a paste wax it it. Making sure to include the joints and crevices and then let it dry completely. Be sure to maintain the furniture on a regular basis, such as applying grease or oil when needed. Have a great day. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 18, 2014
They can be, but I wouldn't store them outside. I think they'd weather poorly in the rain/snow.juliasandiego on Jul 22, 2013
NO, they will rust. I store them inside & take them to the deck when I want to use them. They are very comfortable & stack to store easily.skippy3508 on Sep 28, 2013

The arms are 9 1/2 inches from the seat and taper up to 14 inches at the center. These have been measured from the seat.overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
I have a standard height dining room table and I can not slide them completely under it. The arms start to taper down so you can push a little in but not all the way.angel82880 on Jun 1, 2013
No, I don't think you'll be able to. I can't fit them under my table.juliasandiego on Jul 22, 2013

These chairs are not weatherproof, but they should be okay outdoors if taken care of properly.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 4, 2012
Can you please elaborate on "taken care of properly"? I.e., what steps would one need to take to make sure these chairs hold up outdoors?ssglover315 on Apr 1, 2013
Hi ssglover315, Since these are not weatherproofed they can be taken cared of by keeping out of direct sunlight and water to prevent rust and color fading. Hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us and have a wonderful weekend !overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 5, 2013
