A few quirks, but a good deal
 from TX,  Oct 14, 2012

Overall, I like the chairs. I don't usually buy products here without reviews, because while the O has some great deals, it also has the occasional lemon. But I was looking for a mixture of parsons-style dining chairs in blues and greens, and I figured if I didn't love these two, then they'd just be the spares kept in another room until I needed to have six place setting instead of four. Luckily, I like them very much. I wasn't sure what to expect "wax green" to look like, and was hoping it would be a little more green than shown. Instead, it's just a tad bit more yellow, although the photo is VERY close, and I'm likely influenced by having so much green already in the room (including the walls). Regardless, it looks great with my lime-green and turquoise room. Assembly was simple, although it took a little patience. The chairs ship in four pieces each. The back is one piece, with the legs already attached. You then have to attach the seat and both front legs. The directions say to attach the seat to the back first, but since fitting the front legs into the slots in the seat takes some force, I'd suggest getting those secured (hand-tightened only) first, then attaching the seat to the back piece. Once everything is hand-tightened, stand it upright and put a little weight on the chair to get all the pieces lush, then tighten. Doing this, neither of the chairs wobbles (yet). The hardware is inside the seat bottom, which is covered in that usual black "fabric" attached on all four sides with velcro. The inside is unfinished, so has some rough edges--which tore open some of the desiccant packets. Unaware of this, I ripped off the "fabric" cover a little too enthusiastically, causing tiny little desiccant balls to bounce out and all over the floor. NOT an ideal situation with a 2-year-old who still likes to investigate everything by putting it in her mouth. Also, the "fabric" is bigger than the opening. If I pulled it taut, I could see the black edge sticking out a bit when the chair was upright. Easily fixed with some pinching to "pleat" the velcro in the back, where it doesn't come as close to the chair's edge and therefore isn't visible. All in all, I think these are a good deal for what I paid. They're not perfect, but unless they fall apart on me (and they seem sturdy enough right now), they're well worth what I paid. If the model came in the other colors I was looking for, I'd buy more.
