I got two of these chairs to put at either end of my antique dining table. The other four chairs are also antiques (the table from about 1840, and the chairs from about 1900) and these chairs work well with all of the old pieces. Also, my dining room has many shades of blue, and the subtle tone of these chairs is perfect. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Bought two counter stools first--thought they were pretty and well made and then I ordered the same pattern in dining chairs--only thing is I wish the color was a bit more on the green side rather than blue and the legs were white rather than an expresso color, but it still is a beautiful chair.
These chairs are just what I was looking for. I would give them 5 stars, but for 2 reasons: 1) like some other reviewers stated, they have a bit of an odor to them that will last about 1.5 weeks. I did spray with an odor neutralizer and it helped immensely. Even just bringing in the boxes where they sat for 1 week before hubby assembled them, you could definitely smell the odor which was a cross between a mildew smell and a new car smell ... if that makes any sense?! 2) they don't glide backwards very easily on rugs, but was easily fixed by buying some plastic castor tacks at the hardware store where you can get a 8 pack for $1.99. But overall, the chairs are gorgeous. My dining room furniture set has a lot of dark brown, and I had 6 dark brown leather parson chairs prior before my cats scratched the hell out of them until there was no more leather. So I needed some contrast to not make the room so dark brown looking ...I was looking for chairs that had some shape, texture, and color and these chairs did the trick. The shape comes from the unique roll back ... it's a very classy look, the texture from the medium thick velvet like material on the chairs, and the color was exactly what I was hoping for. It's a very light, soft sage color, not on the darker side. So it was the perfect blend with our dining room and the existing soft green/beige colors in our dining room rug. And the best part, thus far, none of our 4 cats have even tried to use as a scratching post. Last thing, they are very comfortable. I mean seriously comfortable. I recently hosted my ladies cooking club, and each and every club member commented on just how seriously comfortable they were. One even said, wow, I could just sit here all night. So despite the 2 initial negatives, that were easily rectified, I would have given 5 stars except really for the initial odor. I would highly recommend spraying with a neutralizer upon delivery. So bottom line, these are beautiful, high quality chairs for a very reasonable price.
