Updating my initial my review. The chairs look good, but the legs are SO WOBBLY I'm constantly having to tighten them!!
I bought these chairs in the beige color, and they were true to color and really lovely. I'm overall quite happy with the purchase. Just MAKE SURE that you put the legs on CORRECTLY - you have to watch inside as you're putting the legs on to make sure that they go correctly into the holes - don't try to do this without a light the first time you do it. You have to make sure the legs go in correctly or else the chairs will be wobbly. If you buy the chairs, BE SURE that the screws go into the holes that do not have plating around them (you'll see what I mean if you purchase them). All the legs should be screwed in with their holes that have little metal plates around them facing OUTWARDS (and the non-plated holes facing INWARDS). Seriously, it makes a big difference. One of them came out wobbly until we took the legs out and re-assembled correctly and now all of them are perfect. I REALLY liked how they zipped the chair legs into the chairs, that made assembly easier. There was one screw missing which was annoying, but overall it wasn't bad once we got the hang of it. They were packaged quite nicely and they look lovely. My only other complaint is that they seem to be a BIT low - but it's also possible our table is a bit high. Either way, they work well.
This chair is very attractive and also sturdy. The back is low, but is perfect to use as a kitchen/dining table. The base was already assembled. I merely had to attach the back and seat together, and then bolt it to the base.
The Chair sits inside the entry area of my home, the perfect size and color that matched the decor'; a quiet beige rather than cream. I did not find the chair complicated to assemble and all pieces were included.. I appreciate Ink+Ivy sleek style furniture. I highly recommend.
I just bought a total of 4 chairs in this style and it was delivered to my doorstep (yay to free shipping!) in a matter of days. We were shopping for this specific style chair and when I saw this for the super low price on Overstock, it was a done deal. Ideally, I wanted these chairs with a nickel nail trip on the back, but that's a DIY project that my hubby and I can do later since the prices for chairs with a nail trim were significantly more expensive.
The beige linen fabric is nice and the overall comfort of these chairs works with our needs. My hubby was able to assemble these chairs quickly and easily (the legs are packaged inside the base of the chair for the ease of shipping purposes). There was no damage, so we're pretty happy with our purchase. My hubby would have preferred the base of the seat be a little longer for the length of his legs, but these will serve its purpose in giving us a newly decorated dining room.
I bought 2 of these to see if I would like them and when they came I loved them! I was a little scared about trying to put these together based off of the reviews, but if you have someone to help you its not bad. I just bought 6 more to complete my dining table. True to color (I bought the gray linen) and chairs came within 4 days. Very happy!
Great chairs. Screwed the legs on and that's it. The chairs flank a fireplace and look great. The seat is wide so that you can curl your legs in, yet not too deep allowing you to touch the ground when seated. That given they are not oversized in the arm rest and this keeps the overall footprint in the room down. The seat was firm when they arrived and already are softening with use. The back isn't a "sink into" squishy chair. The tufting on the back adds a nice bit of character.
This is an awesome chair! It looks even better than in the picture. It's pretty comfortable and the upholstery is reasonably nice. Not necessarily sure how the fabric will hold up over time, but nice for the price point. Everything arrived intact with the exception of a minor scratch near the bottom exterior of one leg.
A couple notes on assembly: Try to get the bolts for the front stretcher in by hand as far as you can go before using the included allen wrench. An interesting note (that I figured out after assembling the front stretcher, of course) is that the semi-rounded tip on the allen wrench can be used to tighten the bolts at a slight angle. This is invaluable in the tight quarters of assembling the front stretcher. When assembling the back panel, it helps to have someone hold it in place while you get the the bolts in place. As always, make sure you don't tighten down the all the bolts completely prior to getting everything together and snugged. The back panel looks like it doesn't want to go in properly, but once everything is tightened, it all fits just fine. When placing the seat panel make sure to only use a hand screwdriver as anything else is likely to strip out the soft wood (soft being relative, of course). I made that mistake, but it was easily remedied by substituting some longer wood screws and tightening them till snug by hand.
Overall, great buy and would definitely purchase again! This is going to look great in my new apartment.
I'd considered getting one of these chairs in college but due to space constraints in our tiny closet of a room my roommate and I agreed to get foldup chairs that could be stored when not in use. I recently remodeled my bedroom in my house and upon completion I had a corner that looked bare and overlooked a window with a great view. I did a bit of shopping and came across this chair and thought 'what the heck'. I ordered it and it shipped immediately, even with blizzards blowing it arrived much sooner than expected! Took all of 5 minutes to unpackage and set the chair up in my bedroom. It completed the look perfectly and the cushion isn't some chintzy little piece of fabric like some of them can be. It's substantial and great quality. Thick, soft and so comfortable to sit on. I can sit and read in this chair for hours. Perfect addition to any room.
Looks high end. Sturdy to sit in and the legs were easy to install - back legs tricky on positioning, but easy to screw in once I figured it out. Color is a little more silver - grayish than picture which is showing a little more taupe-y. I hope they get more silver in because I need 3 more!!!
Love the color of these chairs. The green is what is in the picture. Goes with the dining room set I designed perfectly. They are very comfortable to sit in. Only downfall is after trying multiple attempts to get the legs even, there is still a wobble. Even tried dropping the chair as the instructions state. Very easy to put together.
THEY TAKE A VERY VERY LONG TIME TO ASSEMBLE. I listened to 3 podcasts. It was a great time of learning, but my back hurts. You have to use an allen wrench the whole time and it's all at weird angles so you have to screw stuff in like 1/16 of a turn at a time. BUT then you finish the chair and you sit on it and you're like, "****. There are two great chairs here and I feel like a grown up on a budget who has figured out how to have decent things." I'd buy them again, but only after I'm not single anymore so I can make my partner do it while I watch and laugh, then enjoy sitting on him, I mean them. The chairs. Sorry. You guys definitely aren't going to approve this but I hope you pass it around the office and laugh because life should be full of laughter. You're welcome.
Very worth a few extra bucks. These are sturdy and comfortable and the leather-product upholstery is very nice. We have some rather heavy relatives who might not be comfortable in the similar but smaller chairs. Since we have to think about holidays and family gatherings when we contemplate our dining room, I didn't want to risk it. For a little more money than the other parson chairs available on Overstock and other websites, we are very happy.
These are a great design but what keeps them from being 5 stars is the turquoise color. It's just a little too bright and the material looks a little bit fake. They're still a good value for the money but if I bought them again the turquoise fabric would not be my first choice. The styling of the chair is so cool and it doesn't need a bright color to still make an impact.
I was hell-bent on purchasing a classic "Barcelona" chair of which the genuine version runs for about $5,000. The knock-offs, depending on their quality I've seen priced anywhere from $350 to $1,500. I couldn't bring myself to buy a counterfeit chair so I looked for something similar that was classy, modern, edgy and sophisticated enough to hold its own against the inevitable comparison to the classic "Barcelona" chair. This chair is a beautiful piece or furniture that certainly looks far more expensive than what I paid. There is no attempt at using tricky verbiage to describe the material as anything other than genuine leather. It certainly feels like very soft, nicely grained and sewn well. I'm certain this is genuine leather (not bonded leather.) The tufting is symmetrical and beautiful and appears to be flawless. Again, a design feature that could have gone horribly `wrong, but in fact, impresses me very much. It was delivered well-wrapped and protected in one piece. I simply had to take it out of the box. What a treat compared to the nightmare Ikea furniture debacles. I am so pleased with my purchase and have no regrets about not getting the "Barcelona" knock-off. I highly recommend this chair.
I love the look of this chair, and although the wooden components were not very well-packed, they arrived in good condition. In all other aspects, I agree with CANUCK2012's assessment. I would like to add that the chair has a big black zipper climbing up the entire back, so if you are planning for mid-room placement, this is not the chair for you. I bought the light green, and I have a purple on the way. Live the color choices, and since they will be used only occasionally for company, they suit our purposes, and they ARE lovely looking.
Very beautiful chairs but definitely much darker than they appear in the picture. Definitely very dark and not a salt and pepper color. It would have been too cumbersome to return so we purchased some light colored complimentary slipcovers for alternating chairs. If I could go back again, I would have done the light grey instead of the dark grey. Also, they came with bit more of the worn weathered dusty look than I would like, but after wiping them down with Murphey' s oil soap, they were in great shape. Nice cushion, comfortable, and nicely priced. It was a good value.
UPDATE: Still love the chair. However, my husband sat in one and now it leans toward the front. When we looked underneath we saw that it had actually compressed under his weight. Also next to the other one It appears to be leaning down in the front. It is still useable but not quite as comfortable as it was. I would strongly advise that no one over 200 pounds sit in this chair.
I had an area in front of a bay window where I needed two small chairs. These fit the bill perfectly. The teal-ish color picks up the blue grays in the rug. The bay where they sit is not carpeted. They sit on the hardwood floor at the edge of the rug so they swivel very smoothly. THey are not expensive fine furniture. I don't expect them to last forever. The back is very low. If you are tall you may not find them comfortable for extended sitting. I am short and weigh about 150 and I find them very comfy. My husband 5'8 and nearly 300 pounds finds them very comfortable for sitting but again not for an extended period as the back is too low. Likewise our teenage son who is 5"10 says they are comfortable but eventually the low back gets to him also. The fabric feels delicious also. Assembly was so easy. Just use the enclosed allen wrench to install the swivel. I put a small table between them and we use the area for afternoon tea or chess or board games. They are NOT our primary seating for everyday. I got them more for the look. Perhaps we will replace them later with the same style in leather. For now they are absolutely perfect. Again, not fine furniture but certainly well constructed and looks more expensive than it costs.
I bought two in light blue. The assembly is not difficult logistically, just in hooking in all the bolts. Got smart on the second one and found an allen wrench drill adapter....much easier with a drill! The blue is slightly toward a turquoise hue, but not much. Once together, they are sturdy and their size is as expected; the photos on the site are realistic. Very happy.
I really love these chairs. I got them to replace a set I have already... and I thought these chairs would be a little bigger. But, they are very, very small in size. It's more like chairs for a nook area... not for a formal dining room, or even for a big table. It's smaller than the average chairs at Pier 1 Imports & Pottery Barns (my old set I'm replacing is the from Pier 1). With that said, they are still very comfy, and very good in quality. They look very good... I like the style so much, I'm keeping them... but I'll just be honest and let you know that they do run small... But this look cannot be matched elsewhere, so I'm keeping it :)
I ordered 3 sets of these chairs to go with my new *** . They are slightly darker in color than the table, but look really pretty with it. Of the 6 chairs I received, one was damaged. Overstock is currently working to replace the damaged one for me. They were pretty easy to put together - the back piece is all one pre-assembled piece and you just have to build the base and attach the cushion. I recommend a power screwdriver for the wood screws and cushion (the holes are not pre-drilled) but the rest can be done with the included allen wrench pretty easily. Two of the 5 chairs I assembled wobble when sitting empty, but when you sit down in them they stop. They are lightweight, but seem pretty sturdy. I can't speak to longevity since I just got them, but for the price, I am very happy. (They went on sale two days after I placed my order and Overstock gave me a store credit for the difference when I asked them about it.)
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.
The fabric on this chair is so nice.....true to color from the photo on the site. Although you had to connect the back of the chair to the seat cushion, and add the legs, it was pretty easy...but would suggest two people so one can hold it in place while doing so. Getting so many compliments on our newly decorated sunroom from Overstock!
I like its quality, very steady and joint seams are neat. Color is just right and perfect for my room design, naturally matching with the main style. Very easy to be assembled. The seat design makes your back feel comfortable. Overall, affordable price with good quality and nice style, plus proper functional design. It is worthy for this purchase. Perfect for living room, hallway and bedroom as well.
The chairs look absolutely fantastic. However, the correct hardware was not sent and one chair was left unassembled until the proper parts arrived. The other problem I encountered was that there were holes pre drilled from the seat frame to allow screws to be placed into the seat itself, but no pre drilled holes into the seat. This made this part of the assembly very difficult. I do believe that the chairs we'll be durable and other than those issues are just what I was looking for.
I got the beige color and it was a nice light color that matches my other furniture in my apartment. Shipping was super fast. The chairs were nicely made and it is comfy. However, it is a bit small. It looks like more of show piece than an accent chair. It might be too small for a tall person. One of the back legs of the chair came broken. I'm not sure whose bright idea was to assemble the two back legs of the chair and leave the front two for the consumer to attach. I guess they believed that handlers at the postal service are superb at being careful with packages.
This is a very pretty accent chair. However, it is not very sturdy.. so it isn't a good chair for every day use. I needed an accent chair that was pretty, so it's exactly what I needed. Do not buy this expecting every day use.
I have had these chairs for two years and they are still like new. I have a two year old who eats at them and the stains come right up. They are easy to clean and very sturdy even after the abuse of being knocked over many times by my toddler.
The chairs have a nice padding, but there isn't enough padding on the front of the seat where your knees bend. You can feel the wood and it's not the most comfortable. The tufting and gray fabric looks nicer in the photos. I got these on sale so I'm going to keep them but if I paid full price I would be returning them. They were really easy to assemble and sturdy.
These are packaged really poorly. There is no padding in the box, so the back legs poked through the box and got damaged. Chunks of wood are missing so I have to send them back for a replacement.
I love these chairs so much! I ordered one at first to give it a trial run and two days later when i received the first chair, I ordered 7 more! The construction quality is excellent- the leather is supple and soft yet is thick and very durable. The chairs go fantastic with my dining room table which sits on top of my creme shaggy rug. This is the exact chair from a *name brand* showroom I've been eyeing at a shopping center and over there it was A LOT more expensive. Can you imagine my surprise to find it here on Overstock?! I love Overstock!
I purchased 6 of these chairs to go with 2 other dining chairs and they are just perfect. I was nervous because there weren't many reviews, but taking a chance paid off. The chairs have a really nice matte white finish, the walnut legs match our walnut dining table perfectly. There is a little flex in the back of the seat that allows for a slight lean back and in my opinion adds to the comfort of the seat because they are not so stiff. They look much better then some of the other chairs that overstock sells that are the same style, but with the fake wood grain pattern in the seats, that looks very cheap. The chairs are light, but really a great replica of the ***** chair that we have always wanted, but weren't willing to pay $$$ each - Instead we paid $$$ for all 6. The chairs were easy to assemble, just had to screw on the legs. Helpful tip: There are 4 little white pads to protect the bottom holes of the seat where you screw the legs on the chair - Save these and put them on the bottom of the legs as furniture pads. Only complaint: There was a very minor scuff on the front seat of one of the chairs, but I was able to buff it out with a magic eraser. (Don't buff too hard because you will take the finish off. Lastly, I would highly recommend these chairs to any modern, contemporary, mid-century styled home. We love them and so does everyone who has sat in them or even seen them. I hope everyone can find this review helpful!
I had previously purchased four of these chairs for my dining room. I love them so much that I bought two more. They have a designer look and enhance the design of my thorougly modern dining room. Besides being very attractive, they are extremely comfortable. The chairs were very reasonably priced, and the fact that I did not have to pay any tax and only $2.99 to have them shipped was an added savings. All in all.....a very good deal. Thanks OVERSTOCK.
The chair is what I wanted. It was larger than I thought it would be but a good size, it may need a pillow on the back for shorter people. The Charcoal color is on the blue side which is also what I wanted. The texture of the material is great. It shipped well, it came in good condition.We had no trouble assembling it. It seems like it will hold up well. Love the look with the rest of my furniture.
So I needed a reading chair for a guest bedroom and I came across this lovely chair. In addition to the prompt and detailed delivery that text/emailed me with updates, the chair arrived undamaged and was easy to unpack and assemble. The orange is not as orange as it shows in the online picture. It's a burnt orange but very petty and not so far off to send back. Forgot to say it's really comfy.
The picture really does not do them justice. Everyone who has come by the house is really impressed by them and wants to know where I got them. They are really beautiful and comfortable. The shipper really needs to be more careful though, because one of the boxes really was banged up and one of my chairs had a deep scratch on the leg. I repaired the leg myself.
This chair fits perfectly in our living room. I was startled at first for how light it was but we needed a smaller sized accent chair and it works, especially for the price. On top of it all its surprisingly comfortable and perfect when you have company over to sit around and talk. I definitely recommend it!
A little tricky getting it together, but I am 73 with osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, so I just took my time and got the job done. I love it ....it is in my reading nook and I get a lot of compliments on it.
