This product is a reasonably priced imitation of the Eames Molded Plastic Dowel Leg Side Chair. This is not an exact replica, but it's pretty good; especially at less than 25% of the cost of the originals. Most noticeable differences can be seen in the hardware in the base of the chair, as well as the type of wood used for the legs. The chairs are comfortable, and the plastic provides nice "give" when you lean back.
Overall quality is good (though not up to the standards of the Eames chair). However, one of the six chairs I purchased came with a defective screw (four of which are used to attach the base to the seat). I contacted overstock.com's customer support, and requested a replacement. I'll post an update once the situation is resolved.

Love the look of these chairs but, as previous reviewers said, they do break. We bought 6 and 4 are already crooked and bent. The metal supports under the seat have actually bent so the seat pitches forward. On the two that aren't (yet) broken, they creak so much, we expect them to break any day.
These are excellent looking replicas of Eames chairs but the quality is very poor.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. They looked great initially but now 4 of the 6 we bought are broken. They are crooked due to bent metal.

If you're a fan of this iconic Eames chair, but not a fan of its $*00 price tag, these chairs work. Honestly you really can't beat the price. The build quality is about that of an IKEA chair, and is currently serving as a a suitable set of kitchen chairs in my smaller kitchen. They're good, not great.
The white plastic seat had a few small blackened scuffs when I opened the packaging. A Mr. Clean Magic Erasure took care of them, but also made me realize how easily the seats could be damaged if you have pants with metal buttons or grommets on the pockets. The assembled chair is also not the most solid under you and has quite a bit of flex. Not recommended for people who are rough on their things, or like to rock back in their chair.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Actual color matched online photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The chair quality is on par with the price. They're not going to fall apart on you, but I'd recommend putting thread lock on all of the bolts, and pads on the feet. The chair's seat is softer plastic and will scratch easily so be mindful of pants with button pockets.

This is a great replica of a popular mid-century design. Unfortunately, due to shoddy constructions with bolts regularly becoming loose under the seat, this chair isn't even worth 1/2 the current price. We purchased 2 & the plastic seat cracked on one a few months after purchasing & we just threw the other one out.
If you're going to plan on very rarely using this chair, it might be ok as a design element, but this didn't even hold up to an average sized person using it in their home office.

Normally these chairs cost between $**-** at a store as well as most online retailers but luckily I found them on Overstock for less. Plus using the **% off e-mail coupon, they were a steal. The chairs are identical to the pricey Eiffel chairs you find in boutique modern shops but they're significantly less costly.
It's quite good looking, but not the best quality. Still I got something nice given that what I paid for. Mine did arrive without any missing hardware or defects. I'm a smallish women, but it took less than 10min to put it together.
Hello dinbk, On the Product Page, under assembly required, is a link to the assembly instructions where is says "Click here to see an assembly diagram for this product". Please let us know if you require additional assistance. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 22, 2013
Even though they don't come with instructions, you just have to turn the base until it matches up properly with the legs. You'll know if they're matched up correctly. Don't over-tighten until you're 100% sure.auntmidgee on Oct 8, 2013
Also, the black pieces on the legs may need to be rotated a little for the screws to line up with the holes.ypierluissi on Dec 7, 2013

Just received these chairs and since they don't come with assembly instructions I don't know a) what order the washers should be lined up and b) how to puncture through this felt pads -- do I need a power tool or something? Some useful advice would be welcome!!!tiffwhiff on Jan 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Rip the felt pads off, they are just for shipping. Just use the big washers.petebaker on Jan 31, 2013
if we open the box and take out the chairs to look at them, we can't return them for a 100% refund if we decided we don't like them? (the return policy says that the item can't be opened in order to get a full refund.)mavericksmum on Oct 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
That is correct. You would have to pay for the return shipping as well as a restocking fee.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 23, 2012
