[First, I'd like to point out that the 1 star review above is actually a 5 star.] I ordered 8 chairs for dropshipping to Mexico--after placing the order, I was a bit concerned that it was a 3rd party seller. The chairs arrived with 1 a bit damaged and missing several bottom plastic caps. I contacted the seller and they offered a reasonable discount and sent out the caps--couldn't have been more accommodating. Would highly recommend this product AND the company: the chairs are perfect, stylish enough for indoor use in my casita. NOTE: I did get some discoloration from rain--could have been heavy minerals--but paint solvent took care of it beautifully. I really wanted black as it's so modern, and they're great in looks and comfort--and the stacking feature is the best.
I love the floral pattern on these chairs it's a real showstopper! We bought them as guest chairs for our home office and get so many compliments on the beautiful looks and amazing comfort. The order arrived quickly including all parts and pieces necessary for assembly there was no hassle involved. Definitely recommend this high quality sturdy product!
I recently purchased a large, contemporary glass and stainless steel dining room table from a high-end furniture retailer whose name rhymes with "Room I Can't Afford". I didn't want to spend $4,000+ for a set of 8 chairs at this merchant, so I ordered a set of contemporary chairs I found at a department store. The chairs were to be shipped from the vendor in 3 weeks. 3 weeks go by and I receive an email notifying me the chairs are backordered indefinitely with no ETA. I was in a bind having no chairs for my table. I had already combed through all the furniture stores looking for affordable yet modern/contemporary chairs and had come up empty. In desperation, I did a web search for contemporary dining room chairs. My search turned up these Christopher Knight Lydia chairs. They looked just like the ones I had ordered from the department store. HOWEVER the Christopher Knight chairs were over $450 less than the ones I had previously ordered! I made the assumption that with such a price difference I should set my expectations low. I prepared myself to receive chairs that wouldn't be of the greatest quality. The chairs arrived just two days after I ordered them. They were ridiculously simple to put together - 4 screws and that's it. I read the customer review where the writer complained about the degree of off-whiteness of the chairs. If anything I think the opposite is true. They are true to the color in the picture... which to my eyes look very white. They are whiter than my white-painted radiator in my dining room and they are almost as white as the white light-switch covers in the room. A word of warning - they do show dirt easily, but at the same time they also clean very easily. Regarding the quality of the chairs... my expectations were completely exceeded. They are extremely well-made. The legs are very sturdy and feel like solid metal. I thought the chairs might be uncomfortable given the firmness of the back and cushion - but that wasn't the case at all. They are very comfortable and offer excellent back support. I smile every time I sit in them. Overall the construction is very solid and it feels like a high-quality chair to sit in. They match my dining room table perfectly and look like they were all part of a set. Paired together, one gets the impression that these chairs cost many times more than what I actually paid for them. Hey wait a minute- I just noticed the picture on Overstock.com shows the chairs have arm rests... mine don't have arm rests. In looking at the product page again all pictures of the chairs show arm rests attached. I just double checked to see if I missed them in the box they were shipped in - no arm rests. What's up with that??? Ok - well in spite of this recent discovery, actually prefer the armless, more streamlined look of my chairs and I'm sticking to the 5-star rating. It would look far too busy to have eight chairs with arms around the table. (I'm sure for posting misleading pictures about the product, overstock.com will give me some sort of recompense... right overstock.com?) I actually don't care... the chairs are an extraordinary value and they look absolutely stunning with my contemporary dining room table. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! Thanks Christopher Knight and Overstock.com for getting me out of my dining room chair bind and offering such a phenomenal product!
Ordered this chair to use in my office, once I got it the bag of screws and washers was torn open with missing screws and washers so had to make a trip to ***. Turned the chair over and there was some marking on the sides of the chair, I figured with some water and elbow grease it would come right up, not the case! After scrubbing for 10 mins k passed it on to my husband still wouldn't come up. I even went as far as to get a little bit of acetone on a q-tip to rub just the markings still nothing. Packaging and inspection of products could use some up quality control.
