    • Beautiful, well-made chairs, firm
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Linen

      We bought two of the linen (off-white) chairs for our small apartment living room. They are lovely, well-made, and really firm, which I love. All my women friends have come over and tried, and given them the thumbs up for comfort. They are the opposite of squishy couches that you sink into and that make most of our backs howl in pain. They are quite large for chairs of this type, so measure carefully for your space. I think the manufacturer could sell zillions of these, if they were a bit smaller. I'd take 4" off the width, and 2-3" off the depth. I'm 5'8" with long legs, and they are a perfect fit for me. For women who are shorter, it's helpful to have a small pillow. The off-white color is more tan than you think from the photo. So don't worry that you are getting too white a chair. I'm including photos -- they nearly match our light tan walls and carpeting.

    • Very nice chairs!

      For the price, you can't beat these chairs. It took me less than 25 minutes to assemble and they fit right in with all of my Pottery Barn furniture. As the other reviews mention, do not tighten any screws until every screw is in place. The holes will not line up if you tighten any of the screws without all of them in place. Just read through the full directions before you assemble and it will be easy. The seat cushions are hard, but the seat is deep so it's still comfortable. Very happy with this purchase!

      I knew building these was not going to be easy, based on most of the reviews but that inconvenience was a small price to pay for the great price we paid. These chairs (we bought two in Klein sea) are beautiful. They look expensive, and are really sturdy. We 're very happy and totally recommend them.

      I got the Carson Carrington Karkkila Mid-century Arm Chair in the beige color for a guest room; it is not too large but measure carefully; I like the neutral tone of the fabric and the low seat. It seems comfortable enough for a chair that won't be used heavily. Also easy to assemble by myself. Recommend.

      I was looking for a "Mid-century" looking chair (for my living room) and came across the Carson Carrington Karkkila Mid-century Arm Chair. I ended up buying the white one, cause they didn't have in stock the dark blue one. It arrived on time with no parts missing. Assembling it was easy. I gotta say, it looks just like the one I saw here. Super sturdy. Although the seat is a bit too firm, it's still comfortable. I am very pleased with this chair.

      I was searching for a Mid Century Modern accent chair for my lakeside vacation rental. I needed something that was not too big and was sturdy enough for all sorts of visitors. After much searching on overstock and other sites, I really liked the look of this Karkkila Mid-Century Arm Chair. The reviews were, on the whole, very good. Some people complained that it was hard to put together. I took a chance and ordered it. My husband put it together in 15 minutes with no drilling or adjusting necessary. It looks lovely in the space and is firm but comfortable. The azure color is true to the online photo. I am happy with my purchase as is my picky husband. I attach photo of my new chair in the living room of our cottage.

      The sleek design is perfect and functional as an addition to our seating area. As others have stated, they are easy to assemble but all bolts should be not be snugged up until all bolts are in place to ensure a level finish. Also, after attaching the back cushion, place the chair on its back and have someone push the bottom cushion towards the back as you attach it to the bottom frame; this will give it a more finished look where the bottom cushion meets the bottom of the back cushion.

    • Great chair!

      This chair exceeded my expectations given cost. The seat is very firm - not cushy at all - which I wanted. The color is true to the pictures and the wooden frame is too. The fabric seems like it's very durable and has a nice, subtle textured look to it. Really good buy for the money!

      The linen colored chairs are very pretty. They are not the most well constructed chairs- the screw holes aren't perfectly lined up and on one of the chairs, the hole was stripped so the wooden arms are not completely secured to the seat back. For the price, they are pretty awesome. I've purchased 2 in blue and 2 in linen colors. They are firm and comfortable to sit it. More of an upright supportive seat, not a sink in, not cushy, but this is the kind of chair I like to support my back.

      Packaged very well with easy to follow directions. We ordered two. Putting the first one together required my husband's assistance because I couldn't line up the arm rest section with the back cushion. The instructions tell you not to tighten the screws until the whole chair is assembled. When I assembled the second chair, I only tightened the screws until they grabbed and then stopped so that the whole chair was a loose structure. This made it so much easier to line up the arm rest with the back cushion. Once it is lined up, then tighten all the hardware. There is a huge sticker on the underside of the cushion stating that formaldehyde was used in the production of the chair and that it can cause cancer and birth defects. I don't know if I would have purchased the item had I been aware of that. All that to say, I love the look of the chair and and satisfied with the quality.

      Excellent quality, packaged well, decent price, and prompt delivery. Its only problem was that the back's bolt holes did not align on assembly. I had to remove the bottom pegs so I could lever the back panel to line up with the holes. That took some head scratching, but it eventually went together. It is a solid piece of furniture, an we are very pleased with it.

      Overall this is a really great arm chair for the price. It is a bit firm but in a comfortable way. This also means it will last for a long time. The entire thing gets shipped and a smaller box and you wonder what it is until you open it up and realize its the chair. It does take some assembling. If you have assembled ikea furniture then this chair is a walk in the park. Overall the build quality look and feel look great. The only thing that dosnt make it absolutely perfect is the exposide screws on each other side of the arm but the color of the screws match the wood close enough its not an eyesore. I would easily buy this armchair again in a heartbeat.

      Just arrived today. Quick delivery, which is wonderful. Easy to put together, but two people will help. Seating is firm, but quite comfortable and feels great on the back. I ordered two for in front of my bay window and they look great. Also, the seat is wider than you think, which is also a plus. Can’t wait to finish this room.

      Very pleased with this purchase. Initially I received the wrong color, but customer service was very easy to work with and corrected the mistake. The chair looks great and is comfortable while on the firm side. The seat is quite wide to accommodate different body types. It was a breeze to assemble by myself, though keep in mind you will need a philips screwdriver which doesn't come in the package. Also follow the instructions and do NOT tighten the screws all the way until all of them are in place for ease of alignment. My two small complaints are related to: the wood stain being uneven and runny in a couple of places (definitely not high end job); the back cushion which is somewhat short (I am 5'7"). A taller person may find it uncomfortable.

      I like the style of the chair, which matches with my leather sofa. The only thing I dislike is it is kind of too firm to me, it is just my personal preference. The setup is easy and straightforward.

      Perfect! --Such a beautiful chair with sleek, sophisticated lines. Azure is as pictured, a dark peacock blue. The chair is easy to assemble, though I would recommend having a second person provide some pressure when attaching the back to the seat frame: the firm cushions fit tightly together. And yes, the chair is firm and Very comfortable. It should hold up well for years.

      I ordered two in ivory and the chairs are beautiful. They were easy to assemble and look great in the little nook that I planned them for! The cushions are firm but this isn't exactly a lounge-around-all-day kinda chair anyway so it doesn't bother me. I really like the fabric because it seems to be durable, the chairs are sturdy and well worth the price.

      Nice chairs! Love the color and mid century vibe. I jazzed them up with a faux sheepskin and some pillows. Not extremely comfortable, but not uncomfortable. These have held up well for over two years.

      This chair is perfection!! Read so many bad reviews about it being uncomfortable, smelly, hard to assemble, etc. It is an arm chair-the comfort level is appropriate. It did not smell, was not damaged, and came well packaged. It was not hard to assemble, the directions tell you specifically what to do/not to do. I did it in about 45 mins.
