I love this chair! I just built a new 'lady's' office onto my Master Retreat for my Architectural & Design Studio; I needed a comfortable chair for myself to sit in that wouldn't cut the circulation off to my feet, I'm 5'-9" tall and this chair is very sturdy/firm, yet easy on my back/ spine and legs. Heavy-duty, this wing back is perfect for this purpose. By the photo above, I thought the chair would be more of an Ivory color, it is however, more medium tan. I was worried when I pulled it from box. But once I got the five bolts and two legs screwed in place (this is not easy), I put felt pads on the plastic protectors provided with chair--didn't want to damage my new wood floor, as this is a heavy chair to push in and out. The nail heads are large and prominent, they are a darker, rustic brown brassy color, really pop out against the linen fabric. The cushion is firm, and after long stints sitting at my desk, I've yet to notice any permanent indentions in seat, which is important since cushion looks separate from chair, but it is an attached styling. No flipping cushion. This is the only minus I can think of on this lovely chair. I hung a black and silver rope/tassel with crystals on the back and stenciled my firm's design with my JP initials (scroll work style) on the front of chair in black. Added black lampshades to my lead cut crystal lamps and viola! I now have a rocking office that I could practically live in! I'm off now to buy the sky blue tufted storage bench seat to sit on the other side of my glass-top desk. You won't regret this chair and it's uses are endless!
I was nervous about buying furniture online but everything about this order went smoothly--the ordering, delivery, and assembly. Guests noticed the new chairs right away and complimented us on our good taste and how they loved the sturdy, firm seating. The color and style matched the picture exactly and the size is perfect for smaller spaces like our townhouse. I use them as living room seating. I did take the time to spay them with upholstery guard because of the light color, which I was afraid would show spills and dirt. All in all, my first purchase from Overstock was a huge success.
Yes with reservations. It is a cute chair -- nice size and color -- but I ended up returning it. It felt like it was going to tip backward - even without someone sitting in it. It was also a bit difficult to assemble. The bolts attaching the seat to the back just never seemed tight. Nice as an accent or decorative chair but I don't know if I'd want it for frequent use.
This chair is absolutely an attention grabber... however every-time someone sits in it I hold my breath that it wont all apart (wobbly) or tip over on them. The chair is very top heavy ... I had to add weight to the seat area (storage area) just so it would not tip over on my cat. Also beware the nail-head trim appears silver in the picture,,, it is more like aged bronze color.
I really love these chairs! The only problem we had was putting them together was a chore and Overstock had to send 2 new seats and 2 whole new chairs just to get my 4 chairs put together properly because the holes were drilled too big to fit the dowels. Overstock service was excellent!! Now that they are put together I love them and my guests rave about how COMFORTABLE they are.
I purchases these chairs for the ends of my rustic dining table. I purchased a different chair for the sides. This chair is so so low in the seat. The chair is very substantial, so it was deceiving to have the seat cushion so low. Your elbows are literally in an upward position. I am 5'7" and my husband 6' , we both thought these chairs were too low. I also am not a fan of how the cushion looks on this chair. It is not neatly done and looks misshaped on both chairs. Note. the bottom of the chair legs have tiny metal nail-like sliders that dig into floors. (need to replace that with a larger slider also) I will be keeping them, but not to use as dining chairs, but as a sitting chair in bedrooms. Overall, I will keep looking around for what I want, but these are not in my opinion a good choice for a dining chair. * Color is exactly as shown in the picture.
Chairs are outstanding. Very comfortable. I order 2 and just received 2 more.

I bought two of these chairs to go at the head of my rustic dining table. The beige linen goes well with the black and beige linen Varia chairs that I previously purchased. These chairs would have been so much better if they had more height. I couldn't justify paying $800 each for the wing chairs that I really wanted. So, these will work just fine for the *** each that I paid (Overstock had these on sale 10% off and I had a 10% off coupon). Due to the lackluster quality of the nailheads and trim, I would have returned them and rated them lower if I had paid more. I'm going to add throws over each chair to give them a little more pizazz. Please be forewarned that not all the screws fit exactly. So, my hubby had to use some of his tools to make necessary adjustments.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. All the nailheads are not exactly in line and the trim sticks out on the side of them. This is the area where the quality is poor. On the positive, the fabric and cushions seem durable.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The chair is good quality for the price.....the fabric seems a tad bid stretched on the back of the chairs, but not too noticeable unless you're really looking.
