I selected these chairs for my new 9x10 "office with a window" at the college where I teach. I wanted dream chairs for my new home-away-from-home, and these are perfect. I have received so many compliments specifically on the chairs, from people who I know have a good sense of style. On each chair I have a multi-colored pillow in trendy designs, one floral and one with geometric shapes. My gay colleague says they give my office an "upper East Side" (NY) look, and that is true. The buttons and shape of the chair back are unique, both vintage and contemporary. The color of the chairs is not quite off-white and not quite beige--sort of in-between. Since getting these, I've decided to make the whole office sort of a Frank Lloyd Wright theme, and bought a mission-style lamp, also from Overstock.com to go with them. I highly recommend the purchase of these chairs if you like furnishings that are beautiful and artistic looking.
