For years, my husband and I have had two chairs at our EIK table. But as we recently had twins, who are now in the type of high chairs that attach to a dining chair, we were left with no seating for ourselves. As the chairs we originally had have long since been discontinued, we decided to order four new ones: two for the high chairs, and two for us. When the chairs arrived, my husband set about assembling them. Major pain. These are flat pack, but they're like, Super Flat Pack--nothing is assembled. He put one together, and then we brought it out to the kitchen to see how it looked. "Ridiculous" would be an accurater description. First, the hardware is all visible. All the screws and bolts and whatnot are plainly visible on the finished product. Second, the one assembled chair rocked because the legs were uneven--and lest you think we just assembled it improperly, my husband has made a large portion of the furniture in the house, and has been woordworking and making furniture since he was a child (with twin infants, however, we were looking to save time by buying these). Third, they're like little mini dining chairs--they were a full five to six inches shorter than the chairs we already have, and they just barely peek over the top of the kitchen table. So that was it--he took the chair apart, and back they all went to Overstock. And the return shipping charge was over fifty dollars, so we only received a refund of approximately 64 percent of the original purchase price. So that stunk, too.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color matched
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor; unless you like the look of exposed harware on a chair
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Either I didn't read it carefully, or the description wasn't accurate
