I was very excited about this chair...the first one arrived and was just what I expected...true to color and size and yes funky! Just what I wanted for my living room, but one of the sides was broken in 2 places (cracked completely in half). Overstock was great and took care of returning the broken one and sending me another. The second arrived and it looked as if it had been opened before, and I didn't even have to unpack it all the way to see that this one was also broken. I was very disappointed, and I hope the manufacturer reconsiders their packaging. I'm giving up at this point
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.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, although it looks slightly darker online than it's actual color.
- How is the quality of the product? Good quality. Solid wood, sturdy construction.
- Did the product fit true to size? yes.
i really like this chair! it caught my eye, as artisan work from indonesia generally does, last year on overstock. i had wanted to purchase one then, but it was sold out. i put my name on the email notice list and was notified when it came back in stock several months later. i nabbed one and glad i did, as it appears its once again sold out? like some of the other reviewers mentioned, it comes replete with a varnish scent that lasts a few days. if you have a sensitive nose, you could put it in a covered outdoor area, if there's one available, or in a room you don't use much, for the first 2-3 days? delivered to us inside of a week in 4 pieces, my boyfriend put it together lickety-split. i've always liked the semi-lounger style and i love the way the back forms to your body...sits low to the ground, which is not ideal for everyone. however, our 15-year old cat says thank you and bring me a blanket. cheers.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality
- How accurate was the sizing? pretty accurate...actually bigger than i thought it would be...
These chairs arrived packaged well, but they still had some knicks and scratches on the leg section of both chairs. Noticeable,but not enough to want to send back, I will have to get one of those dark furniture markers to hide them, I'm female and they were very easy to assemble and looked great when I finished. Comfortable, but very low to the ground, especially if you have long legs like me. I think they are slightly lower than standard low armless chairs. The color is dark but not the deep dark mocha color I pictured. They had a somewhat strong odor of varnish or stain when they first arrived, which has since faded (or I've gotten used to it) Overall a great purchase, I would definitely recommend for a unique twist to any room.
I had concern that they would not be sturdy, but surprisingly they are. We did have to put a few long screws so that they didn't shift so much and would eventually loosen up. Once we place the screws, they are very sturdy and comfortable, too.
We love these chairs. Ordered 2 and one arrived fine but the other one was damaged. Don't know if its the packing or how they store these but legs seem to have this layer of dirt which looks like they are rotting. We ordered a replacement and immediately got one.
I ordered this for my son and had it shipped to CA. The first arrived broken with the packaging damaged. The 2nd was shipped quickly and arrived with packing intact. But one of the legs was also broken off at the dowels. Customer service was wonderful to work with but I got a refund instead of trying for a 3rd time.
Extremely please with this perchase. So comfortable and easy to assembly. I actually bought two. And i am please witht he purchases. Even if one of them arrived damaged (which is why it got 4 stars and not 5)- one of the legs had broken off during transit but I was able to use garilla glue and a clamp to repair it. You can't even tell I made the repair. Very happy with my chairs!
This chair is absolutely beautiful. I really wish I could give it 5 stars but as others have stated there is a problem with the screws not lining up. No matter which way we tried, my hubby and I could not line up the screws with the holes. The only solution was to use a drill to straighten and widen up the holes. Once he did this, the screws went in fine and the chair is as beautiful and sturdy as could be. We have it in our living room and it looks so beautiful we decided to make it a pair and I just ordered another one.
The chair comes in four simple pieces. But, the wordless instructions are very poor because there are two sets of screws of different sizes and you have to study the seat part to figure out which sides are the top and bottom. AND the same for the support bar. Then, the holes did not line up properly... and there is very little wiggle room to make the necessary adjustments. What should have been a 20 minute max assembly job took me two hours because I had to figure out a way to compensate for the one last non aligned screw resulting in a solid but unsnug fit at the bottom front of the chair. This classic Indonesian chair sits low, but is very comfortable for all except those over 6'5". It is sturdy enough to hold a 250lb person. I would recommend this chair to anyone who has the patience to assemble and improvise.
Patience is a virtue. We had to have 4 separate shipments of this product before, on arrived without cracks and damage. Overstock's was excellent during this process! The problem was how the chair was packed by the manufacturer. There wasn't enough padding on the top of the box so the chair frame would arrive cracked. It is a unique and comfortable piece once assembled.
