This is a high quality replica of Hans Wegner's famous "Wishbone" chair (aka the Wegner Y chair or the Wegner CH24). I am the proud owner of an original that I got from my grandfather's estate, and I got this one so I could have a set (but without having to pay the enormous price of an original). Wegner is a world-famous mid-century Danish designer who passed away a few years ago (and ever since the market for his work has gone through the ceiling). For fans of classic mid-century design, this piece is well worth the price.
We have owned the real Wegner chairs for several years. And we wanted a couple of more chairs for extra guests but did not want to spend the money that we did on the originals. After reading the reviews, we took a chance and ordered two. We were indeed surprised by the quality. The finish on the wood and twine on the seats are very similar and the feel when sitting is no different than the real Wegners. And it only cost us on a fraction of what we spent on the real thing. Love them!!A
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is exactly what's represented in the photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. We have the real Wegner chairs and ordered these as extras. Frankly, we were surprised by the high quality. I had read a review that the curved back was made of more than one piece of wood but that's not the case on the chairs we received.
Super wood chair. The seat is strong and comfortable and the curve of the back fits the curve of my back. I?m a pretty big guy and often find wooden chairs too stiff and straight. But I can lean back in this one and it takes my weight. It?s a nice wood and overall just a well made dining chair. You can?t go wrong with ordering this inexpensive dining chair for your house.
I am a huge fan of midcentury design, although by no means an expert. To me, they look quite close to the real "wishbone" chair. I love the look of these chairs, and they are comfortable, too. I have 2 young children and it is easy to get dropped/spilled/smeared food off of these chairs. My husband is tall (6'4" and 200+ lbs), and he finds them comfortable and roomy enough, too. They add a stylish yet relaxed look to our dining room :)
I purchased 2 chairs to serve as end chairs for a contemporary marble table.
The Hemp seat is good quality and very comfortable. The wood was as pictured in the ad, so I was very pleased.
I am 5'2", so I need a chair pad to make it feel at the correct height while dining, but I would put a pad on them anyway to protect the nice seat.
The curved back is extremely comfortable for lingering at the table. I was impressed with the free shipping, it arrived on time, without any dings, or problems. I would recommend this for anyone who likes light feeling furniture, but is also durable and comfortable.
I am obsessed with these chairs. I do not find them uncomfortable as some other reviews have mentioned. They are solid wood, yet lightweight. And they have a mid-century yet bohemian look because of the woven seat.
I bought two of these chairs hoping they'd coordinate with the beech floors in our kitchen, but no such luck. I'd have to agree with the couple of other reviews that mention the color being off. It's too dark for beech--more like oak--and has an unnatural peachy tone. While the chairs are reasonably comfortable, I can't get past the finish and will be returning them ($26).
I bought four of these chairs to use with a new Danish-style dining table I purchased from DWR. The chairs are beautiful and a great value - much less costly than purchasing the same chair through DWR - but they mesh perfectly with the more expensive table. Some comments say these chairs are not comfortable, but I disagree. I like their low-profile design that eats up less visual space than, say, a high-backed dining chair.

Since the seat height on these is so low, what should the table height be to go with these chairs?bitseyo on Nov 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello bitseyo, Our research indicates that a general rule of thumb is to allow 12 inches between the top of your dining surface and the height of your chair seat. According to this, the table would then need to be about 28 to 29 inches. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 12, 2013

That is hard to say, as there is always variation in the color of both birch and beech wood. I suggest enlarging the image as much as possible. You can get the image quite large by clicking control and the plus size until you get it to the size you want.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 1, 2012
The chair has a stronger golden brown element than appears in the photo. I love it but am not sure how it would go with birch.beadbrainz on May 7, 2013
We have this in my daughter's room and she has Ikea furniture in a birch color. This chair is not exact--it's a little darker--but I think it works very well.ktwest on May 27, 2013
