We are very happy with our new Wallace Emerson flatware. It is beautiful. It looks casual in a casual setting, but looks very elegant when set with the good china. We love the feel of it in our hands. The balance is wonderful; plus the price was outstanding. We are very pleased with the product plus pleased with the quick service from Overstock.com. The package came a day before the expected date and the box was in great shape. We definitely will be purchasing more things from this company.
The Wallace Emerson 20 piece set arrived today. It's exactly what I was hoping for ~ excellent weight and balance, and so rich-looking. Just beautiful! Never settle for less than the quality of 18/10. I did call Customer Service a few minutes ago ... not a complaint, but the description needs to be changed (unless my set was just a fluke). The set is listed as including 4 each of teaspoons, soup spoons, dinner forks, knives, and salad forks. I didn't receive ANY salad forks, but instead got 8 teaspoons. That's fine with me ... I much prefer the extra spoons in lieu of salad forks. I called so that the description on Overstock could be changed. The Customer Service rep, Jennika, was a delight. Then again, their reps are ALWAYS friendly, helpful, and patient.
Chairs are beautiful and go well with our newly purchased table (Emerson Reclaimed Wood Table & Bench from ****). We also got 2 matching counter-height stools in the same ivory color. The color is definitely ivory and overall, the chairs are well-made, minus a few scuffs and nicks from transportation/delivery. The only big issue is when assembling, the holes don't necessarily match up and took us about 3 hours to put together 4 chairs and 2 stools. The assembly instructions are pretty crappy - poorly written and screws are tied up in bunches that don't make sense. So, don't fully tighten the screws, leave them just a little loose so you can readjust/tighten once you've done the wobble check. The wobble check is what really took the longest since you have to adjust the screws, adjust the legs a little, adjust the tightness of the screws, recheck wobble and repeat. Chairs and stools are definitely super comfy and not too heavy either.
