I did a lot of research to find a close replica of the Hans Wegner chair, and this one is by far the best option out there. I had a few concerns prior to ordering this specific item, namely that it would be flimsy, the wood wouldn't be the correct color, and that they wouldn't be comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. However, once receiving the chairs, all these concerns were put to rest. The material is very solid and not cheap at all. The color on the page is essentially the same color as the chairs. And finally, the chairs are actually very comfortable to sit in. The best part is perhaps that they come assembled and very well-packaged in bubble wrap.
On a side note, I have also seen these chairs pop up on home flash sale sites (One Kings Lane, Joss and Main, etc), and I'm fairly certain they are the same exactly product. Although these sites sell this item for the same price, they often charge an extra $20-40 for shipping, and they do not accept returns. Just something to keep in mind if you are considering purchasing these chairs.

These chairs look really great in my open, minimal loft space. Most of my other furniture is black and minimal. And when I told my girlfriend that I was going to upgrade some things and replace my clear plastic modern chairs, she lobbied hard for this, which is a replica of a Wegman classic. The deep dark brown finish of the wood and the natural hemp seat really add a nice contrast to my otherwise sleek and minimal interior design.
This wishbone chair is a solid reproduction of the famous chair by a Danish designer named Hans Wegman. The original chairs are more than four times the Overstock price. Now that I have four of these I can say that there is no apparent difference in quality or comfort from the real things. I am a big fan of not overpaying for something, and this is one of those examples. Awesome mid-century design, high quality natural hemp seat and a warm, dark brown finish hitting just the right note of contrast. Canít be beat.
The back of this chair is at a 45 degree angly, meaning, you cannot sit upright and rest your back on the chair. the picture is deceiving. I thought the "Y" back of the chair (the wishbone part) would be upright, instead, it tilts back. So if you are looking for a straight back chair, do not get this. However, if you are looking for more of a "lounger" then get it. The quality and construction is good, but i wanted a straight back chair.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good

This is a very attractive, well made chair at a good price. However, it turns out to have absolutely NO lower back support and is very uncomfortable without some kind of pillow behind the back. The measurements given for the Wegner and for this chair are exactly the same, but not all dimensions
are provided! By carefully comparing the Overstock chair with the "real thing," I am able to see where they are different. The overstock chair is generally narrower......I just can't figure out what they did with the back! Anyway, we are keeping two of the chairs to use as extras with pillows and I will continue my search for some kind of 60's - 70's dining chairs (and table) in the Danish style that I can live with!
Did this review go thru OK? My laptop is looking a bit peculiar.......

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not as close to Wegner chair as implied - in measurements, comfort
That's what we wanted for dining chairs, and theses fit the bill. No assembly!! They are comfortable and, I hope, sturdy enough to last a while...they feel like it. We thought we had ordered the lighter seat, but got the black seats.. We were so thrilled with the chairs, we decided the color didn't matter enough to return them.
I am disappointed in the basic quality. I really like this style and I bought 2 for our kitchen table. After 3-4 months of use at breakfast by 2 people of 140 and 180 pounds, some of the roping at the bottom of one chair let go and unraveled, with more coming loose. I examined the bottom and found that a splice in the cord/rope had let go. Another splice on that bottom has loosened. The bottom of the other chair doesn't show that much damage yet, but I found a splice in its cord/rope which has loosened a little. No splice can stand up to daily use, so I think this is doomed. I took the one chair to a repair place to tie the ends and reinforce it. The other one isn't too bad, so I plan to wrap to splice with nylon cord and add some Epoxy to the join. And hope for the best.
We bought two as end chairs for the dining room. They look so elegant and are good quality.
Base is firm to sit on but not uncomfortable. We add a cushion for long social nights of after dinner conversation.
They came assembled and were well packed. Love them!
I am very pleased with the Wishbone Y Chairs (2) that I purchased. I have researched the chairs and their mid-century designer since then. These are excellent reproductions at a very reasonable price. I plan to buy two more.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very well.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made and substantial. Very comfortable!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was completely accurate.

Do you know if the chair can fit under the table? or does it slide under the table but then the back rest still sticks out? i guess it will depend on the height of my table, but if anyone has pictures of this chair next to a dining room table it would be helpful. i dont have a very large dining room and would like the chairs to tuck under the table as much as possible. thank you!sfllocal on Jun 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The chair is 28.5 inches high. If your table is taller, then the chair will fit completely under.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 12, 2012
