I bought the chair for our living room, thinking it may add some texture to the room. Unfortunately, it was received with severe damage. I email Overstock.com and was quickly given a refund for the chair. No problems, and no hassles. Thank you Overstock for being so great with this problem. Although I did not reorder the chair, it seemed to match the picture and description exactly.

A friend helped to assemble using glue for wood. I am delighted. The crafmandhip and beautiful carvings makes it a conversation piece.

If this chair has any saw dust or small holes return it immediatly. Don't take the chance of other furniture being infested. The dust is caused by tiny wood beatles and they are empossible to get rid of. They can infest any other wood products encluding floor joist. GET RID OF THEM FAST

It's a gorgeous chair BUT my husband told me it was very hard to put together. Be sure to have wood glue and a mallet on hand. I gave it 4 starts because once it is put together it's stunning. We will see how long it lasts!

This is a great looking chair, the color of the wood is rich and warm. It is very comfortable! It ties the room together and looks nice mixed with upholstered furniture. It was easy to put together, just 4 simple parts to attach with the provided screws.

I saw these chairs on a recent trip to West Africa and really feel in love with them. Although they are unbelievably simple (two pieces of wood slotted together), they are very comfortable, and work well outside on a patio for reading. Although pricey, this chair is a lot larger and more substantial than I expected, and will definately last for a while. The design is decent, although I actually prefer a plainer look. I haven't had any problems with any of the dyes rubbing off, which is a good sign (a lot of similar products use shoe polish to dye wood black and it will do a number on your clothes and fingers). Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

The chair is beautiful, but after reading a few of the reviews about the chair arms being broken, I thought it was a fluke, and my chair would arrive in pristine condition; but, one of my chair arms was indeed split, and one of the screws at the base didn't fit. But, instead of returning the chair (too much hassle), I filled in the split with wood fill and colored it. I then used a long wood screw for the base, and the chair is still gorgeous, and I can live with its flaws. I'm still glad I purchased it.

I received this chair in good condition - so I thought. It is beautiful as far as art work goes. Not the most comfortable to sit in but a very nice looking chair none-the-less. Upon opening the package, I did notice a small hole in it - I figured a manufacturing thing. But low and behold about two weeks later I noticed that there were little piles of 'sawdust' on the floor under the chair. These piles were directly under the holes. I found out, but asking a pest control friend, that there were wood eating 'powderpost' beetles in the chair. By checking the internet, I found that these bugs are deposited into the wood and after 1-5 years grow into adults and then bore holes out of the wood to go lay eggs elsewhere....they had to have been in there a while to be adults at my home. Now I am afraid they are in my home!! If you do decide to get this chair - PLEASE be careful and inspect it carefully. Now I have to wait 1-5 years before I find out if they are in my home because the larve are so small you can't see them!!!

When I saw the pics of the chairs I knew that they would be nice art work in my apartment. I ordered two chairs. I could not believe that they were literaly two slabs of wood put together. Easy !! They look beautiful as they compliment the window sitting area. I have only sat in them once or twice, however they are beautiful to look at.

we absolutely love the chair. my husband put it together with wood glue and he said it wasn't that difficult, as long as your'e handy. the chair did have some minor dings in the varnish job and it took a really long time to get here, but so well worth the wait. its not as large as i thought it would be, but the detail and the craftmanship is beautiful.

I agree with all of the comments below. This is the most beautiful rocker I have seen. I am very happy with the final outcome and the price. It is not only a showpiece, it is very sturdy. That said, the last couple of steps in the assembly are a pain. Getting everything lined up takes some strength and more than one person, and if you use wood glue, get ready for a mess because the holes aren't all in one direction so you can't orient the chair preferentially ... so maybe the liquid nails is a good alternative. I used wood glue because the lower viscosity probably gets into the wood cells better for a superior bond. Either might work fine though. Also, be prepared for 10 business days before they even ship it (I think they don't get them from Peru until after you place the order.) Very much worth the wait to me. But once you get it togehter he final product is AWESOME!! Can't beat it!!

The chairs looked beautiful online. Warning- they really smell!!! We coated them with 3 coats of wood finish, but it helped only somewhat. Also, they are rather poorly carved - imposible to stand upright. When put together (by linking both pieces through a carved opening) they become shaped like an X. We propped the back leg up against the base molding to keep it standing upright, but warned everyone to not touch them, let alone sit on them!

The chair looks great, but it was a PAIN to put together. We needed wood glue, a rubber mallet, and my husband's brute force to get everything lined up and put together. And it still isn't quite right, there is a slight gap at the bottom of the back piece on one side where things didn't line up no matter how hard we tried. But the finished product looks just like the picture and is really nice.

This is undoubtedly the most beautiful rocking chair I have ever seen. Assembly was not a problem, and yes, you must use a good wood glue to ensure tight and long lasting component fits. The chair is sturdy and comfortable, but my only concern is the finish and some basic construction improvements that could enable the new look to last. The rocker arm rests could be rounded to minimize dents on the edges and although a great looking finish, time will tell how it will withstand. I do not think reparing the finish with a furniture rub on will do any good.

This chair is absolutely beautiful, just like in the picture, BUT.... The first reviewer is positively right. I bought this chair about a month ago and it's been sitting in my basement all that time (I'm getting ready to move), until I read this review. When I purchased the chair, it hadn't yet been reviewed, but when I read this I had to pull out the chair and inspect it myself because I thought the review was a complete spoof! Sure enough, there was "sawdust" (it's actually more like really fine sand) and little holes about the size of a penhead (they look like staple marks in paper). It's OUTSIDE now. I'm going through a process of treating it with heavy-duty insecticides. Hopefully, the chair will live through it. I didn't keep the receipt to send it back, not that it matters after a month in the basement anyhow. Luckily, the beetles only lay eggs in unfinished wood, and I don't have any of that in the house. I definitely wouldn't say the chair is worth the concern and effort and I'd be cautious of wood products from this part of the world in the future since this is a common problem there. If you're thinking about buying the chair, don't. If you've already purchased the chair, send it back, or make sure you have it treated thoroughly.

I was a little leary at first after reading some reviews, but I'm glad I went with my gut and bought it! It's an excellent value, it looks like an heirloom! Yes you have to put it together and all you need is a rubber mallet and wood glue! My husband put it together in less than 30 mins. If you were to buy this from a furniture store assembled you would pay 3 times the price, and the hand tooled leather is beautiful!!!! Love it!

This is your great grandfather's rocking chair! Built individually in the tradition of a true craftsman. The near perfection of the carving and embossing of the leather is a testament to the artisan's skill and loving attention to detail. This item is supremely well packaged for shipment. At 64 years, I was able to assemble (and I enjoyed this project) it in less than 90 minutes. I used some wood glue and a rubber mallet to join the 8 pieces. The ooh's and aah's I have been getting tickles me (Everybody thinks it was delivered as a completed chair)! I love this solid Peruvian rocker for the unexpected 'museum quality' elegance it adds to my living room. Nobody has been able to escape this chair's powerful magnetic attraction. Everyone who has seen it had to sit on it and rocků Beautiful!
