  • I just purchase two of these chairs

    These chairs are amazing. Every time I sit in one I feel like a World War 2 fighter pilot. Except this cockpit is incredibly comfortable. Friends comment on how striking the chairs are. They bring any room a whole new feel.

  • Just as good as competitor
    Verified Purchase

    Looks just as good as the competitor's chair which sells for much more. However, this chair is slightly less comfortable than the competition, but not uncomfortable. Get the Ottoman too, it helps with long periods of sitting, looks good with the chair and is priced well.

  • Want to love it,but I can't. Small & uncomfortable
    Verified Purchase

    As much as I wanted to love this chair I just couldn't for a few reasons: 1. It is really really small compared the designer version. I opened the box and was like "ummm, is this for a kid?" They should show a picture of someone sitting in it because I am 5' 10" and the seat back only reaches the middle/bottom of my back. 2. Leather is super stiff. Seems like it is ok quality leather. Might be a good accent piece, but not something you will relax in to watch a movie. I couldn't find a comfortable way to sit in it. 3. The metal siding is ver very thin. You could take one finger and dent it with a soft push. The metal isn't even cut evenly on the inside below the arm. 4. It ships damaged, for EVERYONE! It was packaged ok, but beneath the bubble wrap the chair was stick scratched everywhere. Some may say it adds character, but you cannot remove the scratches if you wanted to. It wasn't just one spot either. The entire exterior metal had scratches all over the place. If you're willing to pay $600 for a damaged, uncomfortable, smaller than expected chair that looks cool, then go for it. Just realize that all these reviews are SPOT ON! This chair is a knock-off from China, but you get less than what you pay for.

  • Look alike ******** Chair
    Verified Purchase

    **************************, this Accelerator chair will surely please you if this what you are looking for. Edgy, with a combined vintage-modern twist, the aviator chair sits low and compact like you are in a sportscar or cockpit of a plane. I'm short and love the feeling of touching the ground with my feet. I have read it is a perfect chair for taller people as well. Certainly different, I plan to turn a sitting room/office into a travel room with large framed photographs of our pets, travels, and people who mean the most to us with accents of cowhide pillows, fabrics and a leather bench with steel legs I found on Overstock to match. It is comfortable to me but perhaps less comfy for someone really large..think sportscar seat and that is the size of it. Very attractive and attention seeking, it draws your attention to it!

  • Feeling Lucky!
    Verified Purchase

    I recently decided to do a travel theme in our bedroom and loved this style chair in Restoration Hardware but hated the $2K+ price tag. I was shocked to find this chair on Overstockat less than $500. When I went to purchase it I was alerted that in was in back order. Two weeks later I got an email from Overstock notifying me that it was now available. I swooped it up and it was waiting on our door when we returned from a ski vacation less than two weeks later. This chair is a very cool addition to our room and definetly a conversation piece. My husband flies cessnas so he really likes this piece. You can not beat this price!

  • Chair NEVER in stock!

    Why has this product been on back order for over 9 months? If you are no longer going to offer it, then take it off your product offerings.

  • BUY THEM!
    Verified Purchase

    I have been coveting these chairs in restoration hardware since they came out. We just moved and needed living room furniture. Could not BELIEVE these chairs were on here! Somebody reviewed that they were screws and not rivets, lower backs than restoration hardware, etc... We didn't find that to be the case. They are screws in restoration hardware, too. These chairs just aren't leather nor do they pretend to be. We bought two and love them. Sit in the ones in restoration hardware and you are getting a $500 version of them. Simple. The screws stick out a bit, so be careful. WE didn't buy the ottomans but bought others with chrome and brown leather-- too matchy matchy to do the whole thing, we thought. Enjoy!

  • Excellent quality
    Verified Purchase

    I bought two of these chairs for my apartment. Really surprised by the quality. They are so distinctive yet classic.... they are the showpiece of the apartment. Compliments galore. They are not only worth the money, but they are truly an art piece. Thanks, Overstock! What a great find!

  • Great looking at great price
    Verified Purchase

    I wanted the look of aviator chairs, but not pay the very expensive price. These are perfect, comfortable, look great for our aviation themed basement. They will last for a long time. The metal sides are thin, not as thick as other more expensive chairs. For the price, the quality and look is fantastic.

  • Nice looking chair but substandard construction
    Verified Purchase

    We fell in love with the Accelerator chair as soon as we saw it on Overstock. We ordered the chair & the ottoman. The chair arrived first, but on unpacking it we found the aluminum wrapped structure to be covered with large dents & scratches. We had expected indentations around the fixings but were not prepared for the big dents in the sides & on the fronts of the arms. We advised Overstock & they arranged for collection of the defective chair & ordered a replacement. The ottoman arrived a few days later. This was also dinged up with a couple of small holes punches right through the aluminum in a really obvious place on the front of the arms. Then the replacement chair arrived. To be fair it was less dented than the first, but not by much. Basically there is nothing supporting the aluminum which is wrapped around the structure of the chair, so any inappropriate handling will result in a dent - in fact it appears to be virtually impossible to lift the chair without causing dents. It is an inherent design flaw. Incidentally, both chairs arrived in boxes that had previously been opened, making us think these were probably items already returned as faulty. Overstock have been very helpful with the returns, but the whole episode has been very frustrating - carrying heavy boxes up the steps & into the house, unpacking/repacking, having large boxes in our foyer awaiting collection.... I guess you get what you pay for & there is a reason that this range is a third of the price of the original Restoration Hardware items.

  • This is really in review of the Customer Service
    Verified Purchase

    The customer service aspect of this chair was horrific, from the moment placing the order to receiving the shipment, ugh... then the return was just as painful. However Over Stock did return without question, however the hugh box was left on my doorstep for 2 days until UPS picked it up. Great Chair if you have small scale furniture. You will receive this chair damaged... it is what it is.

  • Better in pictures
    Verified Purchase

    It looks great in the picture and even from a far in the room. The problem is that the aluminum is extremely thin. - like aluminum flashing you buy at the hardware store. It ruins the whole piece. But as much as I'm disappointed with the quality - I really do love the piece. There is a reason why it is a thousand dollars less than the RH original. Just know that be for you add to cart.

  • Restoration Hardware lookalike aviator chair = A+
    Verified Purchase

    A few 'dings' on the galvanized-type sides only add to the character of this WWII type chair. Totally unique and **** LESS than it's mirror image chair from Restoration Hardware. I'm sure that the RH chair is incredibly soft and supple and absolutely beautiful but this *** super bargain is WELL worth the price. Buy with confidence - if you can get it. This chair stays out of stock but that's because it's an amazing value!

  • Very close to the Original
    Verified Purchase

    This product compares fairly well with a much more expensive version found elsewhere. I'll begin by saying I'm pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to others. The chair is a conversation piece and I expect it to hold up well over time. I would point out a few details, however, that make this a 4 out of 5. Individual screws are used instead of rivets and the aluminum siding is of uniform size and shape (rectangles throughout), meaning that upon close inspection the chair doesn't quite look as original as similar versions. The leather is as advertised, polyurethane coated cow leather, so it does not have a distressed look. And finally, note that the chairs don't have headrests. The angle of the chair means that your head will eventually search for something to rest on, but there isn't anything there. Luckily the chair is long enough that you can slouch a bit and still watch your movie/TV show. In summary, these chairs are worth it for the conversation they'll spark. Their authenticity is a 4 out 5 but still quite good. It's a good purchase.

  • It Does Exist!!!
    Verified Purchase

    I am very happy with this chair. I have seen the other (similar) chair in person and this one compares closely. In fact, I may even like it a little more. The leather upholstery is of high quality and not distressed like the other guy's. When it arrived there were a couple of dents in the aluminum in the front that with a little work, I was able to fix, but then I have experience working with metal. I think in general, you will be quite pleased with the chair. You will need to keep checking the site, because as they say, they sell out quickly.

  • Nice style -could have been in better shape
    Verified Purchase

    Nice style - very comfortable - well represented - excellent value. BUT, chairs were damaged and they were the last two available so we chose to keep them damage (dents) and all.

    My husband and I have been dying over the 'aviator chair' at a store in our local mall for months. The moment I stumbled accross this chair on overstock we didn't hesitate - bought it immediately. The chair arrived today and we couldn't be happier - we were able to achieve the same look for hundreds less. Geat work Overstock!!!
