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.

I work for a private school in the midwest. They gave us a huge furniture budget this year so I invested in a classroom full of these chairs. I really see a difference in how the children behavior and do their work. They are more comfortable and stay on task. I recommended these chairs for their desks at home as well!
The overall quality is very reasonable for the price; these chairs are about 25% the cost of an original HM. They are just as comfortable and have the right amount of flex in the back support.
On top of e reasonably priced alternative for an original, Overstock provided great customer support with my order. I received a seat pan with some scratches and received a replacement from Overstock within a few days.

These are not the real deal, so I didn't expect perfection. They've got the look of the originals, without the better quality materials and attention to detail. One of the legs has a large, long gash in it. Not super noticeable day to day, but it was there. One of the chairs looked obviously used as if overstock had gotten one returned, didn't clean it and sent it out again. There was dirt on the white shell (that i was able to clean off) but there were a couple of worn down spots as well. The base feet also looked as if they had been used as they were scratched a dirty. In the end, you don't even notice and for the price you can't beat this deal. Maybe when we have an extra $600 laying around we can get the real deal.

I bought these chair to replace ones I sent back (same chair, just with arms). After purchasing the first set, they started falling apart right after I put them together. I hesitantly bought these, knowing they were the same manufacturer, and am pleasantly surprised. They are holding up well, look great. Not prefect by any means, but you get what you pay for. I'm happy.
