I had put these chairs in my cart and deleted probably 10 times in the past year. I'm so glad that I finally took a leap of faith. Here were my concerns and the ultimate result on receiving the Glen Chairs: 1. Does the back have tufting? No, it doesn't. The back is smooth and clean. 2. Can chairs this inexpensive be quality enough for my home? Yes! I was replacing mission style chairs that had a higher back. These low profile, modern, clean chairs look like they cost significantly more than they did. 3. How hard will they be to put together? I found these chairs easy to put together. The back and back two legs are already assembled. You have to put the front legs on the base and then attach the base to the back. Make sure to follow instructions (which are really basic) and only tighten screws 75%, then sit in the chair for 2 minutes, then tighten to make sure everything is aligned. 4. What color are the chairs? OK, I think every previous review could be right. Color is a hard thing to agree on. I don't think they are white with green or cream with green but I have taupe walls so that probably influences what color I think they are. I think they are a light beige tweed. 5. What type of fabric is on the chairs? The indoor/outdoor fabric description of a prior reviewer made me nervous but I have to agree. The fabric is PERFECT for a dining chair. It is soft to the touch and appears stain resistant and doesn't wrinkle like a chenille might. OK, this is the best I can do to help anyone on the fence. If you really aren't sure then order one set as a test. The box is not nearly as large as I expected so the return shouldn't break the bank if you change your mind -- but I doubt that you will. Thanks Overstock! You made my kitchen look elegant and modern without draining my "play money" fund! PS. I am almost positive that this is the exact same chair ***** & ****** offers in a brown fabric for almost $100 more per chair. What a deal!!!
