Love them!
 from Texas,  May 17, 2010

We searched nearly every store within a 60 mile radius looking for some black parson chairs. They are not too difficult to find, but the quality of most is lacking! The various problems with the ones in stores were: (1) If you leaned back in the seat, the chair would flex, (2) We could feel the frame of the seat when we sat down, (3) The seat had no support (just material suspended), (4) The material was thin, (5) The chairs were "dainty"...we wanted something more substantial to match our rustic table. Every single chair we found had something wrong with it. As you can imagine, I was terrified of ordering chairs online, but I did not want to have to drive 2.5 hours to Dallas/Ft. Worth to scour their stores!!! The reviews here were awesome, so I took a chance and ordered all 6 chairs. It took about a week for them to arrive. I put one together with no issues. I was expecting it to be difficult after reading some of the reviews, but it really was no big deal. I was immediately giddy with excitement after the chair was together and I checked them out. They are exactly what we were looking for!!!!!! We would have purchased these in the store if we had found them. They are sturdy, and more cushioned than any chair we found locally. They are fairly substantial and match our table very well. I was concerned about the cherry wood not matching the finish of our table, but it was a near perfect match. (You can do a internet search for xxx dining table to see what we put these with.) My only semi-complaint is that the chairs are not leather. They are "leatherette" according to the instruction manual and looking up the model number of the chairs. (They are made by Coaster.) The material IS nice and thick, though. From what I read about leatherette, it is more durable, easier to care for, and will not get the worn look that leather does. If that is the case, it is a plus as we have two dogs and two young boys! My husband put together the other 5 chairs as he loves to put stuff together (and uses any excuse to use his tools.) He had to re-drill or re-thread a couple of the holes. (He has some special tool for doing this on metal. I'll update this review when I get the info from him.) Overall, I am very happy with our purchase. I am also EXTREMELY impressed with the customer service department of Overstock. Buy with confidence. :)
