I bought these chairs to used with a farmhouse table that my brother built for me. We have sort of a "PB" style going on in our home. I was very nervous to order 6 chairs online in case they didn't match or were poor quality. First of all, the color on these chairs is a true antique white...not bright white and not too cream. The wood tone is very true to the picture online, and is what I would call a medium to dark color. One reviewer pointed out that the distressing is exactly the same on every chair. That is true, but is not a detail that many people, including myself would notice. The distressing is minimal, but just enough for my taste. Secondly, I rated the chairs "good" quality. I reserve an "excellent" rating for furniture that is Amish made or of similar workmanship. These are well made, and I believe will last many years in my busy home. Some reviewers commented that the chairs were difficult to put together or that holes didn't line up. We absolutely did NOT find that to be the case. My husband and I are fairly handy. We used a cordless drill, and it took less than 30 minutes to put 2 chairs together working as a team. All holes lined up and directions were clear. If using a cordless drill, be careful not to over-tighten each bolt/screw, because you could split the wood. The only thing we did differently from the directions is that we installed the seats of the chairs with the chair upright. I held the seat in place while he inserted the final screws. We had no issues with any of the chairs being wobbly. Even if we were not handy, the assembly is "beginner level". I would recommend 2 people as an extra set of hands is always best. If you are like me, I rely heavily on reviews when shopping online. I hope you found this helpful, and that I answered any questions that you may have had. The bottom line is that I would most definitely order these chairs again, and highly recommend them. The price is awesome compared to most chain furniture stores, and the quality is NOT inferior. Happy Shopping!
I decided to purchase this futon based on reviews on this site. And it was less than half of the cost of a 10 inch futon for sale at futon stores in NYC, so the price was hard to beat. I have been sleeping on a mattress that compressed to @ 4 inches after 5+ years so anything thicker would be better than what I had. I let the mattress air out and decompress for a long weekend while I went out of town. I was amazed by how much thicker it was than the futon mattress I was sleeping on. All around I am pleased with this mattress so far, even though I've slept on it for about a week, BUT it's not a full 10 inches. It seems to be @ 8 in the middle that gets the most weight on it and @ 9 inches on the ends. But it's still a great deal compared to in stores. The shipping was fast, I think I received it 5 business days after I ordered it.
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.
Very nice stools at a very nice price. These looks much more expensive than they cost. The only negative is that there are no pre-drilled holes for the seats. However, it's very easy to drive the provided screws in (don't need to pre-drill). Just have someone sit on the seat when you do it so that it doesn't move. The stools also come with extended legs to make them taller.
I ordered the country chairs to go with a new table that I just bought and they matched perfectly. I love these chairs because they are sturdy and pretty. I am kind of a heavy lady and they are just great. I feel confortable and safe in these chairs.
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.
Thanks to everyone who took time to review this and other ottomans here at overstock.com, I thought I had a good idea of what type of ottoman I wanted. Still, I prefer to shop locally and hit the local furniture stores looking for a coffee table ottoman. I was initially interested in the table-with-an-upholstered/leather-top look; however, most of the brick and mortar stores only carried the 'grandma/grandpa' shapeless foot stool kind of ottoman. And the color and size options were also paltry -- boring oatmeal family colors or crazy patterns and sizes that were too large for my needs. A couple of stores carried selections with a little bit of style to them, but I felt that the asking prices were ridiculous. I mean, why does a glorified foot stool cost as much as my lei zee boi recliner? Anyway, I re-shuffled my priorities and began to consider more traditional ottomans such as this one. I liked the idea of adding a punch of color to my living room via the ottoman, I liked the clean shape of this one, and I really liked the price. (Although I was a bit skeptical after seeing the prices around town, thinking 'what's wrong with this ottoman that overstock sells it so cheaply?')
I chose the wine colored one. Like an earlier poster noted, the color is a deep burgundy, which is just perfect for my room. I was afraid that it would look too wee in front of my 80" long sofa, but it is perfectly proportioned - length, width, and height. And like someone else also noted, while no one will mistake this for a high end piece of furniture - it isn't lux - I don't think it looks cheap either. Shipping was lightening quick (I ordered very late Sunday night/Monday morning, and it arrived Wednesday afternoon), nothing was damaged, and it took minutes to affix the legs. No bad smell either. My only concern is regarding how this piece will do long-term. The material does not seem to be all that thick and I wonder how it will weather extended use - if the material and/or seams will stretch under the weight of resting feet. Only time will tell, but until then I remain very happy with my purchase.
First, let me start this review by saying that this was the first time I purchased something from Overstock. What attracted me to them was the good price and amazing shipping rate. I'm very happy with the overall experience with Overstock, and would definetely recommend the website.
I bought a futon with another company, but the mattress was really low quality and came without any protection or plastic when it was shipped, so I returned it and decided to get a new one. This futon mattress was one of the most affordable ones that I found, and it had good reviews and great shipping rate, so I decided to get it.
This came vaccumed packaged with several thick plastics, which I'm very grateful for, since we never know where our packages stay during shipment. The mattress is quite heavy, full sized and the color was exactly what I chose (Natural). It's thinner that I thought it would be, and quite hard, but I slept on it and it's not umcofortable, and definetely nice if you are just sitting on it.
I would recommend this, however, if you have some extra money to spend on a futon mattress, maybe go with a thicker one (maybe 8 inches).
You cannot beat the the price of this bed. I debated on the twin bunk, twin w/futon and this one (with twin on top and full on bottom), which was the winner. This is a great option because it gives the kids room to play/watch TV on the bottom bunk or sleep 2 on the bottom, while still having more space up top. The bed is for my 4yr old son who wanted a Nascar themed room. The beautiful pine twin bunk beds I had chosen would NOT look so great with a racing theme. I was hesitant to choose this set because it looked cheap to me. It is really nice, solid and goes great in the room. It does wobble a tiny bit when climbing up, but is sturdy once there. I can't speak to set up as my husband did that. I did hear some yelling and frustrated sounds coming from the room - but that is typical when setting up anything big. Overall, very happy and would totally recommend this bed. Great value for the what we got.
I purchased the Monterey headboard in white--it is both very sturdy and beautiful, and overall I am quite happy with my purchase. The only issue I had was with assembling it. All the necessary pieces were there, only the pre-drilled holes used to apply the facing were drilled ON THE WRONG SIDE. Fortunately, I own a power drill, so this was not a problem, but for those of you considering this purchase, please be aware that you may need to do some additional prep before assembly. Also, it does not include the hardware required to attach it to your bedframe.
My husband and I have been searching for the right chair to match our hazelnut colored couch. The chair that we found in a local store that was comparable to this one (just slightly bigger) was going to be over $1,000. It is hard to find a regular sized chair and ottoman since they make so many oversized/chair and a halfs now. We took a chance and ordered this although we were skeptical about the color - it seemed to have a pinkish/peach hue on the screen. The picture of just the material (middle picture) is the most accurate of all three. There is nothing pink or peach about this chair and the pictures do not depict it accurately. The primary colors are beautiful and are a rust, dark maroon, dark green, gold, tan. The quality is very good and seems well made. The back of the chair is lower than I expected, but suits us fine. My husband is a large guy and can sit comfortably in the chair. The seat is firm and kind of bouncy and is attached. I feel like you almost sit a little higher than the ottoman. Overall, this is an excellent deal and well worth the money. You cannot come close to this in any store around. Ours arrived within one week of ordering. Great purchase - go for it!
These stools have been sturdy fixtures in our house for about 2 years now. The only complaint is that the paint chips, but it is probably with use and wear. Also, we have to tighten the screws occasionally, but again they are used constantly. Great items, good price, long lasting.
This is a terrific little table perfect for a small space. I bought this for my parents who had to move into an assisted living facility and had very little kitchen area. It was easy to put together is sturdy and looks like a higher quality richer wood than the price would suggest. Were happy with it.
I bought this for the sleeper sofa in our rental condo to replace the aweful pile of springs and wires that someone had called a mattress. My hope was that the renter would not have a terrible experience should that have to use the sleeper sofa but, honestly, how effective could 4.5 inches of foam be when up against those horrible springs in the frame. Well, I slept on it and was simply blown away. Not only did I not feel a single spring, it was like sleeping on a much thicker and very high quality mattress. Simply amazing!
Sometimes less is more! This is indeed the case with these cube ottomans. They suit my needs perfectly. I originally bought a bench type ottoman (Sheffield), with the split top lid/tray. I will comment on that one a little later in my review.
The cube ottoman is about as close to perfect as it can get for me, the size, the shape, the color, the quality, and the cost. These things are very comfortable, whether youre resting your feet or your backside. They can be placed side-by-side to give a bench look if desired, or they can separated and used as surge seating. The dark brown is really dark, but not black. Its amply big enough for use as a foot rest, yet small enough so as not to bring undue attention to its presence. I paid more than twice the cost for the bench type ottoman, but didnt like it near as much, which is why I decided to send it back.
And speaking of bench type (a.k.a Sheffield Espresso Storage Bench Ottoman), it was nice, well made, and the leather covering really enhanced its appearance. But the cushions were way too firm felt like you were resting your feet on a brick. My feet literally started to hurt after just a minute or two on it. It wasnt any more forgiving on ones backside either. However, It is a very nice piece. It just wasn't very functional for me; and the color looked very much like black to me. I just couldnt convince myself that it worked in the color scheme Im trying to achieve.
The cubes are slightly smaller in size, much more comfortable in use, somewhat closer to the color I wanted, well made, and a much more reasonable cost. Yes, sometimes less is more, and in this case MUCH MORE!
I was looking for a bookcase that would not be clunky but could be placed horizontally and hold TONS of books in an interesting way. (I'm an English professor and avid reader, but I wanted my book display to have more of an aesthetic appeal.) This piece is perfect! It's sturdy and spacious. The various sized shelf areas are perfect for housing a variety of books - from large textbooks and reference pieces to small paperback novels. The shelving pieces are interesting but have a bit of symmetry, so once filled it doesn't look cluttered and jumbled. I like this piece for its ability to easily be used vertically or horizontally depending on the room it is in. (Right now I have it on an office wall with a collection of travel art above it which looks funky and interesting.) My only complaint is that two of the stickers (a number and China's quality inspection) were difficult to take off the exterior side of one of the pieces; I was unable to remove some of the adhesive, so I placed that side of the bookcase toward the corner. I'm definitely pleased with my purchase overall, and my more traditional boyfriend was also pleasantly surprised with how well it came together.
I ordered this bed for myself I am a woman and this bed is great. Putting it together would of been easier if I used some common sense...LOL. It was difficult only because I made it that way. It looks great. Not quite as good quality wood but very worth the price. And it is very comfortable does not squeak or flimsy at all.
I bought this bench to add a bit of inconspicuous seating in my living room. Boy was I wrong in thinking it would be inconspicuous! Everyone who comes to my house compliments me on it. And I agree - it is a really wonderful piece. It sits at a comfortable distance from the floor and is a very sturdy piece. I've had it now for about eight months and it is in the same shape it was in when I put it together, despite daily use. As far as putting it together -- it was a breeze. I just had to attach the legs to the bench. That's it. It took all of five minutes. So, long story short, highly recommended. I'm very, very happy with this piece.
This table is everything it should be for the price. If your leaf doesn't match, then it should be sent back, because my leaf is the same style and edging as the table and fits fine. The size is 38" in diameter. That is only 2" larger than a 3 foot bistro table. If you want larger than buy larger. It arrived quickly in 3 boxes. Took about 20 mins to assemble. I probably could have done it alone, but my husband & I did it together. I think the finish is nice and even. It's very stable as far as I'm concerned. Something I really like is that I have a slate type tile floor that isn't perfectly flat. The leg have screw in rubber pads on them which is perfect because I was able to adjust the one leg so that it didn't wobble. Overall, I like this table. It's under $$$. Has anyone priced quality wood products lately?
I purchased this mattress for an older sofa bed that has an uncomfortable mattress. Our visitors loved sleeping on it. They thought it was very comfortable. They compared it to a bed in a fine hotel. I would encourage anytone to buy this memory foam mattress.
I was looking for comfortable furniture that was firm and could easily be moved, and this fits the bill. If your taste is toward couches to sink into for hours at a time, this is not the set for you. This is exactly the feel I was looking for, and it looks beautiful.
The set was a challenge to put together, as the directions looked like 4th generation ditto paper. However, I was able to figure things out and I'm not a particularly handy person. Once together it feels very sturdy and I'm well over 200 lbs. I was expecting particle board, which this isn't. I was impressed. It looks more expensive than it is.
One additional note - if you notice an error in the shipping address on your order, correct your information online, then call Overstock.com customer service (who are very good) to have the correct info sent to the shipper. This piece was delayed 3 days because the shipping company was prohibited from entering the corrected address that I gave them (the info had to come from the shipper) and they actually lost track of the package for about a day.
My wife and I have had bad backs for decades, mine from construction and logging and hers from an old job injury (upcoming 4th surgery for her) and we did our research as any frugal shopper would for the best product for the least money and I have to say THIS IS IT!It took a week or two to adjust to a memory foam bed but since then neither of us wakes up taking 1-2 hours to limber up and there are no more motion stopping bad back days. Our bad back days, when we rarely have them, are so minuet we rarely notice.We didn't need a foundation because we bought a new bedroom set and it was a chest bed (8 lower large chest drawers) for additional bedroom storage.WE ALSO LIKE the no shimmy feature with a memory foam bed, either of us can toss and turn or get up in the night for a bathroom run and we do not wake the other person.DO NOT BUY a topper that installs on an existing conventional box spring and mattress, you will regret it because you will still have the bed vibration and also not the FULL quality and features of total memory foam sleep. With a topper you will still sink and lump with the old mattress and box spring underneath you..Do not hesitate to buy this product, there is way to much quality sleep and less back pain to take charge of and not to have those two features/events/pain back into your life. Had I known more of memory foam before I would have made the change and bought one years ago. Do your foam study and research and you will understand why not to pay thousands for the name brand memory foam mattresses. If the star scale went higher on this review I would give it a strong 10 ....... Hope this review helps you like the reviews I had read here at Overstock before I bought mine, enjoy~~ :-))Ps: No foam smell in ours and to uncompress took an hour....
We loved the designer Tolix stools but didn't want to pay so much. I originally bought the black ones because the metal weren't available. I returned the black ones and now have 4 metal stools around my kitchen island. Know that the metal is metallic paint not raw galvanized steel with a clear coat. This isn't clear on the website. They work well with our stainless appliances though and are SUPER STURDY. My 2 year old can climb up to sit without tipping or wobbling. Good protection for our new wood floor as well. Very good quality. When the real Tolix chairs come in I'll re-post with how well they work with these.
Bought the sofa and the loveseat for my living room. This room doesn't get much use, so I didn't need a super set. Was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Easy to put together. Took 10 bolts and several screws to assemble. Pay attention to the velcro cover at the bottom that hides where the bolts go. Peel it back and you're ready to go. It really looks fantastic! durable faux suede fabric. I have this fabric on my family room furniture and it is sooooo easy to clean. This would be perfect for a young couple getting started. I have received several compliments already. Just a tip, my UPS guy usually delivers in the afternoon, but because the boxes took up so much space, they came first thing in the morning to get them off the truck.
It took about a week to receive the table and the box and contents were perfect. No punctures in the box and no damage to the contents. The table was totally assembled, except for bolting the 4 legs on and that took no time at all. This is a great table for a small area in the kitchen. The two leafs give the table alot of flexibility and are easy to raise and lower. The table is very sturdy without being too bulky. Chairs that are more than 21 inches wide at the front will be a tight fit. We bought two chairs from overstock that are 18 inches wide and that leaves about 4 inches clearance. The fit and finish of the table is excellent.. Would buy it again!!
We fell in love with this bar stool when we saw it. Although we kept coming back to the eggplant, we ended up purchasing the cream to compliment out off-white area rug in the living room. Both chairs are fully assembled and were packed extremely well. The assembler of one of the chairs was not paying close attention to what he/she was doing and tacked on the metal foot plates wrong. All four are crooked. Don't let this detour you though, all in all this a very fine product and very pleasing to the eye. They are also very comfortable to sit in. Having the low back does two things: 1) it forces you to sit up properly; and 2) it doesn't overwhelm the bar area by having too much going on. One more thing...you may want to remove the plastic floor protectors on the bottom of the feet and add something better. We noticed that it scratched our wood floor when we moved the chair. Go ahead and splurge....they are definitely worth it.
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!
My recent purchase of the Parson Cherry Counter Chairs was pretty favorable.. My 4 stars was because the height was about 4 inches less for the counter in my current condo. They were easy to put together and I've gotten quite good at taking my time to make sure I get it right.. It took me about 1 hr. because after finishing the first chair I decided I could complete the second one without following the instructions.. My fault for being in a hurry.. Love Overstock.com . Just continue to make it easy as well as fun for us ladies...
These stools are great quality and look nice. They match the oak in our kitchen very well. The wood is hard, so it was difficult to put them together by hand. We ended up buying an attachment for our drill to put them together.
This chair is very comfortable and firm. I have a bad back and hip and this chair makes it easy to sit or rise from which is one of the problems that I have with most chairs. The seat height is perfect and the cushion is firm and stable. The ottoman is just an added bonus which makes this chair very much worth the price. Would certainly recommend this chair and ottoman to any of my friends. Colors are very nice as well. If you want a great chair for a bargain price, this one is for you....enjoy!!
This caught my eye while browsing and it looked like a perfect mix of contemporary with traditional styling. I bought 3 pieces to match for my living room. Easy to assemble with clear instructions. The outcome is a very solid and heavy unit with amazing fit and quality. The color is just like pictured, dark brown / espresso.
This chair was purchased for occasional use in a public space. It gets used about six times a week for an hour or so at a time. It has been in use for just over a year, and looks as good as it did when new. It still feels very stable and the cushion has maintained its shape and firmness. . The fabric looks nice, a very subtle leaf print on a medium taupe ground. The fabric is wearing well, with no pulls or worn areas. The finish on the wood is even and consistent. There was a staple sticking out at the back of the cushion that scratched the wood as I was installing the seat cushion; I was able to remove the staple and the scratched area does not show with the cushion installed. It was fairly easy for one person to put together. The frame has four pieces: the back and back legs are one piece, each side arm and front leg are one piece, and the cushion frame is one piece. I was concerned about the round back: it is just the round frame with the cushion pushed into it; it felt rather lightweight and I worried the cushion might come out, but there has been no problem. I am very pleased with this chair, it is a good value for the money and looks much more expensive than it is.
The desk seems sturdy, my only complaint is that the pull-out shelf where the keyboard sits is kind of low, when you pull it out it is pretty much on your lap. This is annoying to me because I like to sit with my legs crossed or criss-crossed in the chair and I cannot, even with my chair on the lowest setting. I got the black and it looks very sharp and expensive.
Like it says in the title - I could not be happier. I read the reviews and thought I knew what to expect - perhaps "a knock-off that wasn't quite the real thing but, hey, its cheap"! In fact it is a reproduction of the much more expensive French original, a reproduction that is all but perfect. (I also bought the arm chairs - and have the same view of them - so the reviews are pretty much a cut and past copy!)
They are slick, comfortable, attractive and sturdy. The black gloss paint is perfect with a very nice shine. They stack - but I don't want to stack them - they are so cute all glossy straight from the box!
No dents, scratches or flaws at all. The black paint job is deep and shiny. The packing was through and secure, I just loved them from the moment I unpacked them. And the price - what can one say except - sorry France, the design for these stools may have originated in your land some 100 years ago but the current place to have them made is China. (Sorry, but its true). [You can check the French prices online via *** dot com or at the French manufacturer's website - check and then come back to O.co!]
If this style suits you (and its not for everyone - Grannies and certain suburbs - I mean you!) then you shouldn't hesitate, snap them up. I have mine in a minimalist - loft style place in the country in Northern California and I would post pix if I could.
My girlfriend and I saw this set of furniture on Overstock at separate times, independent of each other. When I sent her the link to ask her opinion she had already seen it and was already thinking of buying. I took the plunge first ordering the 6-drawer chest, 5 drawer lingerie and a nightstand (limited room for two night stands). The reviews were all very good so I was pretty confident that I would like it when it arrived. i was not disappointed. The items came in a total of 5 boxes, about a week after I ordered them. I knew I did good when I saw how heavy the boxes were. I opened the first box (the nightstand) and was impressed with what I saw. The pieces were very well packed to minimize movement, and individually wrapped in soft foam to protect the finishes. The finish and feel was fantastic, having a nice dark, warm tone to it. My girlfriend and I put it together, and the first thing I wanna say is powertools ;-). With all the screws using a drill or power screwdriver will make things go much faster, unless of course you want your wrist/arm to get a work out. The instructions were pretty clear , and once we had all the parts laid out it was simple to follow. Didn't run into any problems with screw holes not matching, as everything fit together well. As someone who has put together my fair share of furniture I was pretty impressed with that. It did take us close to three hours to put together, but thats cause we were taking our time (and did make one mistake). Once we had it put together we were both impressed with the finished product. Very stable and solid feeling, with good weight behind it. We were both very happy with the look, and were looking forward to assembling the other two pieces. Those two went faster (about 2 hours each) since we already had some practice in with the nightstand. Same good quality as the first piece, and they look great. In these larger pieces we noticed some areas where edges didn't quite line up or fit exactly, but very minor and hard to notice unless you know its there. One of the drawer fronts had a small scratch, but Overstock is already working on sending the replacement, so it all good.
So, to conclude, we both like the set very much, to the point that she has ordered 4 pieces for her place and I ordered another night stand and 4 drawer chest. It's great quality and you can't go wrong with the price. Don't be put off with the assembly - once you put together one piece you'll the other pieces will go much faster, as the layout and technique is the same for all.
A couple of items to note for assembly:
1) use power tools if available,
2) layout and organize the pieces (there will be lots of them),
3) checkout the position and layout of the drawer rails (that was our first mistake)
4) easy with the screws, as the heads do strip, especially if using a power tool.
We were looking for a storage bed, and this bed filled the bill. A very heavy construction quality wood piece of furniture. The bed took us about 3 and a half hours to put together. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I have put together probably 100 pieces of knock down furniture and this was by far the easist set of instructions to follow. I would recommend using a hand held screw driver, and not a cordless drill, anytime you use a drill you have the chance to strip screws and damage surfaces if you are not cautious. Assembly will require two people at certain times, and it will certainly help speed things up during the whole process.
You do not need box springs for this bed, we are using the mattress only as there are slats that take the place of the box springs.
The drawers are not terribly big, but are perfect for extra shoes, or clothes. They are not made for books or heavy items.
The color is very dark, and in certain light could be seen as black.
We also purchased the matching head board and I would recommend getting it with this bed.
Overall I was surprised with the quality of this bed, and I would buy another one if we needed another bed.
For the price, you can't beat it. ASSEMBLY: People complained that the futon was difficult to put together, and yeah, it wasn't especially easy, but it was no harder than any other futon I've put together before. The biggest pain was that the unthreaded screw holes are significantly larger than the threaded screw holes, which means you need to be careful to get everything to line up right. With a little finagling, a rubber mallet, and some vice grips, I was able to put it together by myself in about 2 hours. The springs that people complained were difficult to put on the hinge came already assembled on mine. IN USE: I couldn't ask for a better metal futon frame. My brother used to have a metal futon frame, which had large bars that were far apart, and you could always feel them individually through the frame. This one has many small metal bars, which mean that the weight gets distributed evenly. It can be a little tough to raise/lower the back, but I've never seen a futon that didn't have that issue, and as they go, this one is on the easier side of difficult. CONSTRUCTION: Some of the joints created by the small pieces are not especially sturdy. In particular, the joints on the crossbeams (two bars connected end to end) have a bit too much give in them. Other than that, though, the hinge and spring are very sturdy and seem to be well-made. I don't have to worry about it folding up/down accidentally. The endpieces look nice and seem to be sturdy as well.
I have never purchased any furniture from an online retailer, and I generally like to go to the store and try it out first, you know the big retailers that have mall anchor stores with lots of selection to try out in the store.Anyway, I took a chance on these chairs after reading the reviews, and I ordered 2 of them. They arrived quickly (within a week) and I just put them together last night, and LOVE THEM. I'm about 6'2", so I already knew that they're perfect for taller people.When you buy from an in-store retailer, you're paying for all of their overhead, salespeople, rent, etc. Obviously online furniture buying is not for everyone, but I think it's GREAT and I saved some decent $$ on these chairs -- they're great quality.I disagree with some of the other reviewers about them not being that comfortable, such as being able to watch a movie in it. I sat in one of the chairs for over 3 hours last night...WONDERFUL. lots of support and very easy to sit in for hours.Also people have said in reviews that they are "low to the ground". I don't get that feeling at all. It's not like you're sitting on a cushion on the floor -- these chairs are really nicely placed as far as distance from the floor.And the look is perfect - very stylish. I have a small apartment so these are a great substitution for a big sofa that takes up a lot of room plus they are easy to move from one side of the apartment to the other. VERY PLEASED!The ONLY thing I'm a little disappointed in (barely that is) is the color is a little darker than the picture, meaning Burnt Red could have a lot of different shades but I like the brighter reds myself, and these are more "burnt" than the picture looks. Maybe the manufacturing produces varying shades of red and it's not a perfect process to keep the same red all the time.These chairs would be "nice" with an ottoman but not required.Also, I ALMOST purchased the "armless" red leather chairs, but if you are an "arm" person (I'm one of those people that LOVES using both arm rests in a car or on the plane...sorry) then these are really comfy. I can put a drink or my smartphone on the chair arm and it's very handy.Tip for those of you looking to buy and assemble the chairs: the instructions are pretty useless, so you get 8 silver bolts and 3 gold ones, plus a decent wrench. Silver bolts are used for the base (bottom) and the two gold ones for attaching the arms to the top of the chair.DEFINITELY turn the bolts as much as you can (jiggle the furniture a bit) with your hands before you start using the wrench since the angle of the wrench, etc. you can only turn about a quarter of a turn with each iteration. I put both of these together in about 45 minutes with NO elbow grease. everything fit just fine.I will definitely purchase additional furniture - when the time comes - from Overstock.
We're very happy with this mattress! After quite a bit of research on the big brands we found all the features in this mattress at a much more reasonable price. After all, foam is made up of polyols, isocyanites and surfactants. Chemically there's little difference between this foam and that of the big names. It's all marketing hype. Just watch for the densities of the layers and make sure you select the density that best matches your mattress preferences - higher density = firmer mattress.And the most important point I want to make is that we get a better night's sleep and wake up without backpain. Our conventional mattress was less than a year old and cost nearly twice as much. We hated it. Obviously we're very happy to have replaced it with this mattress. The difference is that big.Thanks Overstock for offering memory foam mattresses at a fair price without all the marketing-induced mark-ups.
My husband and I looked online and went to several stores to find bar stools. We didn't want to spend more than $250 for a set of 2 stools. We wanted a nice stool, some style, comfortable, but not $400. I'm glad we found these.
Functional: The backs stick up far enough for you to actually lean on them, but not so far that they stick up above the counter. Our breakfast bar is close to our bkfast table and we didn't want the area to look like a furniture store with chairs showing everywhere. The leather feels soft yet thick/scratch resistant. The chairs are also quite cushioned and have a decent sized seating area for larger rears. :)
Style: Looking at the chairs from the back, you can see the styling and they look great. We have a traditional looking house and these add a little flavor to the room but are not soooo diff from everything else. perfect. The finish is nice, no scratches. The leather is rich in color. All is a very dark brown.
Shipping/packaging: Arrived earlier than expected in a Very large box---pre-assembled. Cannot beat that! The chairs came with 2" swatches (I suppose for patching or to match to other furniture). they also came with pads for the feet.
Overall: These chairs are sturdy, quality leather, stylish, and affordable. Definitely recommend. They are much better than a typical $75-$100 bar stool you'd see in popular retail stores.
This was worth the money. It is a large queen sturdy frame. It wasn't too difficult to put together but I bought the one with the low arms and the directions where for the one with the high arms which was a little confusing but I figured it out. It comes with more hardware than needed but it is mentioned in the directions. I had to bend a couple of bits that were not properly cut from the hardware but I was able to do this with a small set of pliers and it was only two small pieces. They do have Youtube videos to help assemble but I didn't need them. The reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it is a little tricky changing from bed to sofa position. You just have to get the right angle. It is big enough for an adult couple to sleep comfortably. All in all I am happy with my purchase.
We ordered 5 pairs (10 total) of these bar stools because we are having a lot of family over for the holidays. The price was exceptional. The stools are for our bar area but the metal is a little weak and my husband does not like the heart shape. This is not a surprise as you realize this by the price and the picture. We shopped around for quite a while. They look really sharp wtih the cream seat and black metal. We are pleased with our purchase and would recommend them.
These stools are great for the price point. They are very comfortable and very attractive. The backs are lower so if you are looking for a stool that is low profile, this is a good choice. The backs don't come up way past the counter top so they are more streamlined with the countertop yet still offer full back support--you can still lean back. The color is cream but has a yellow undertone vs. white undertone and best described as overall, from a distance and taking in the whole panorama, 'cream'. Up close, they are subtly yellow-y but not so much that it would detract. The wood is NOT great. I believe it is the asian rubberwood. The wood seems a bit hollow and that stain on the bottom rung (where you prop your feet) chips easily. Again, this is acceptable given the price, overall look and comfort and the fact that you don't see that part of the stool since it is tucked under the counter. The "leather" is attractive (similar quality to any of the chain furniture stores--the ones that send out regular catalogues!) and cleans up very easily. I don't foresee these lasting a lifetime but I am likely to want a change in 5-7 years and at this price, no guilt will come. Lastly, it's one of the few stools that come ASSEMBLED in a very well padded (rather large) box! Just open the box and you're ready to go!
After going to several mattress stores to look at futon mattresses, which they only had a chunk of foam showing the constrution of the inside, I decided that Overstock would be the place to get affordable luxury. The mattress arrived quickly and was well packaged, as stated by others. The burgundy color is very rich, so now I am debating whether I should put a cover on it. We will primarily use it in the 'sofa' position, but it did plump up nicely and it fits great in the frame. The mattress is very comfortable. Great buy, great price.I only rated it four stars because I do not know how comfortable it would be to sleep/sit on it for a very prolonged amount of time.(And it's made in the USA.)
I ordered this memory foam mattress to replace the original cheap foam mattress that had flattened out. The new mattress arrived promptly, and regained its shape in a few hours after unwrapping. It did have an unpleasant odor, which diminished with airing. The zippered mattress cover is high quality. The memory foam mattress is very firm and comfortable, and hasn't taken on any creases or cracks from being folded in the sofa bed. When the bed is opened, it pops right back into shape. Also, the seats on the sofa bed are much higher and firmer, and don't seem to be sagging over time. This mattress is a huge improvement to a favorite old sofa bed.
I read all the reviews before ordering this. Let me tell you how I'd view the size. My husband is 6'1" and I am 5'10" and they are fine to sit in. I would not watch TV or read in them, but I would gladly sit and talk in them, even for hours. The reason I wouldn't be comfortable watching TV in them is that I like to slouch down and put my head back, and you can't really slouch much in these chairs, the backs are too low and the chair too firm or small or something, but they are completely comfortable to sit in if you imagine having people over, sitting and talking, having a glass of wine. They are true to the measurements given and therefore look the perfect size in our small living room. They sit across from a standard 8' couch and full sized coffee table and don't look oddly scaled with it at all. They do have a chemical smell when you get them, I think from the dry-out-pack in the box; the smell completely dissipates in 5 days. Someone mentioned that the chenille fabric will stretch; that is probably true, it stretches even on expensive furniture. If i had the option, (ie if I had the money) I'd probably avoid chenille, my $2,800 sofa is chenille and the cushions look saggy, but for the price of these chairs I don't think it's a problem, I don't intend to have these chairs forever or pass them down to someone or anything like that. All 4 legs went on each of my 2 chairs easily. the seat cushion is sewn into the chair, it is not removable. I think this is fine, it looks 'neater', and I guess if you spill your coffee on the cushion you'll need the upholstery cleaning guy to come to the house as opposed to taking the cushion to the dry cleaner. I don't view this as problematic. The packing was great. If you did need to return them, they would not be at all difficult to get back in the box with appropriate packing. This is an attractive well made chair for a great price, I am very happy with them.
I ordered this for my tiny kitchen and it looks so nice! It created so much space from our old table, it has room for storage, the leaves fold up or down. I just love it! It shipped quickly, no damage, wasn't too difficult to assemble.
Love, love, love these stools! I saw the "real deal" on the cover of Living and thought they looked so cool but they were way out of our price range. I was perusing o.co for some other suitable bar stool for the bar in our kitchen and imagine my surprise to see the stools that I have been lusting after at a bargain price! The finish is shiny black. They are sturdy. They are sleek and stylish and make a statement. O.co is amazing!!!
Prior to this purchase, I had purchased an OVERSTOCK bulk pack of two 10" Queen sized mattresses for the guest rooms in our new weekend home. We also needed a bed for ourselves so we decided to try these before we purchased a King sized. We liked it! The MEMORY FOAM is very different from what we are used to (a number bed) - much harder but, still very comfortable. And it was not at all hot - a real concern for this 50+ woman. LOL. After the first weekend, we were hooked. I came back to OVERSTOCK to search for the King and found this SELECT-A-FIRMNESS. I ordered the MEDIUM and I have to say that it is worth the extra money - (about $70.00 if you are an Club O member.) There IS A NOTICEABLE difference in the firmness and both of us are glad I paid for the option.
It was packed "tootsie roll style" - like the queens but, in a plastic sock instead of the canvas. It plumped up quickly- we slept on it the first night and, we didn't notice any smell at all, (and I know the smell others write about because I've ordered memory foam pads - they smelled for weeks - and were hot.)
I recommend HIGHLY this mattress. (And my friend who purchased the name brand thinks that this one is just as comfortable as hers.) If you are at all concerned about the firmness, try the SOFT but, keep in mind that the closer the mattress molds to your body - the warmer the mattress will feel. Thank you OVERSTOCK. This mattress is a great value!
The only thing keeping me from giving this five stars is that it is a really firm cushion. I didn't have any problems with assembly, and I must have gotten the extra parts one of the other reviewers was missing. LOL I had a LOT of extra hardware I didn't need.
We got this to replace a really old couch in a house I inherited, because we wanted a queen-sized sleeper bed without paying an arm and a leg. Got the walnut finish, navy mattress, and spent the extra money to buy two of the microfiber covers (one natural one blue). Glad I did because we have dogs. LOL The extra cover fits easily.
The back is taller than I thought it would be, I didn't measure it to see if it's the same as in the description, but that's okay. If you're going to use it to sleep on, you will want to (as we are) invest in a memory foam or other kind of padded topper to make it more comfortable to sleep on. But I do like that the seat is wide enough to stretch out on and cuddle in couch mode. :)
No, the instructions aren't the best, but I've assembled a futon before, and I'm used to assembling things with crummy instructions, so that didn't bother me.
No regrets here, assembly took maybe an hour or so by myself. (Had to have hubby help me with the mattress, that thing is HEAVY.) You will have to pull it out from the wall to put it in bed mode if you have it smack up against a wall, so make sure to take precautions to protect your floor from scratching if you have non-carpeted floors.
I am thrilled with this piece. It is sturdy and looks just like the photo. The leather is soft and the stiching and tufting is perfect. Before purchasing the product, I was concerend about the quality of the stainless steel finishing after reading other reviews, but the consistency is just fine. I have been using the bench as an ottoman and it is also great for extra seating when I host a cocktail party. I highly recommend this bench and would get another one if I had room!
We order 2, one for each window and the coffee table. Perfect fit. Only thing is some of the slate pieces seemed thicker than others. But after seeing all three pieces put together, we relized it must be the nature of the slate. All in all, we are very happy.
