I bought 2 sets of these to use as dining chairs. They are great. Comfortable, well made, easy to assemble and look great. They are more sturdy than I expected. Excellent price for a well made Eames reproduction.

These chairs are a great price and are great replicas of the egg shell eames chairs. However, they are relatively small and the legs are a composite wood reminiscent of ikea furniture. Assembly was relatively easy. I'm pleased with them for what I paid for.

The chairs themselves aren't bad and are decent Eames knockoffs. My gripe is that they were poorly packed and one of the shells was significantly gouged and scratched. One of the nuts was also missing. Sending chairs back is a royal pain in the butt so I decided to just keep them. If they were authentic, then I would surely have had them replaced.
I am pleasantly surprised how much I love these chairs. They look better than I expected. The white matches my white kitchen-so they aren't the bright bluish white-thank goodness-just a true basic white. The chair part itself feels a little flimsy when you set on it, but I think that is just how it is suppose to feel, being plastic. And, the plastic isn't the hard plastic, it's a little pliable. One of the legs was harder to put on than the others but my husband got his drill out and it worked fine. So, they were pretty easy to assemble. I really like being able to wipe them off - having lots of 12 year old boys (friends of my son) - is a better solution than having the chairs with chair pads I use to have, and secretly getting upset when they stained something.
I ordered 4 chairs for my office. Two chairs come in each box. Easy to assemble. One set of chairs had been clearly open and used before because there were missing rubber feet and the seat was badly scratched. I contacted Customer service about it and they wanted to know details about the packaging. I didn't respond fast enough so they close the matter and it's not a huge priority in my life so I let it go. The chairs are nice but it would have been nice if they were 100% new and not damaged.
These came with no assembly instructions so I was confused as to how to put them together. There was the chair bottom and the base. However the screw holes were covered with a padding, and it was unclear if that was supposed to stay there or be taken off. (The adhesive was thick and the screws were flat bottomed, not sharp) The chairs were also really low, and my 6 foot 1 husband would have needed help getting out of them. Returned.
We have had these chairs for a couple months now and the screws seem to become loose again and again every time some one sits in them. The other major complaint with them is that they always groan and squeak when people sit in them, making the person sitting in it feel like the chair can not support their weight.
The style is exactly what we were looking for but the chairs are very squeaky. About once a week we need to tighten the Allen screws and when they are loose is when we have the squeaking. The screws will need to be replaced soon as they are starting to strip from how often you need to tighten.
These chairs are great so far - I didnt have any assembly issues. It should be known though that the legs do seem like they might be a bit fragile for heavy usage, or for those of us that are on the 'larger' side (which is totally okay!). Leaning back on two legs is a definite no-no. I plan on buying another pair.
We bought a new home and needed to spend carefully on a few key items. These cool chairs fit the bill....and then some! We purchased four chairs and were (and remain) thrilled with their fun and funky 'aesthete' and durability! Two big thumbs up for this 'score!'
