    I like the chair, it seems durable. I was disappointed that The finish color and texture were irregular and the front hardware had a varnish (?) coat which flaked off when the chair was unfolded. However, I would like to purchase more chairs … this time, I’ll try white. The lady on the phone, Leeann, was very helpful.

    Good people

    Chairs are sturdy and well made. The walnut finish gets this review a 3. I would buy again but not in walnut.

  4. James D. (verified owner)

    I have nothing but praise for your products — and your service. I have older chairs that I’ve gotten new covers for from you. And I’ve ordered new chairs and covers, as well as custom covers. You always deliver a quality product — on time, with no defects. GREAT JOB!

    This was an 8th grade graduation gift and you enabled me to turn what has been a difficult summer into a very memorable one. Thank you for the step-by-step help in completing this project and shipping it in a rather expeditious manner.

    Arrived lightning quick!

  17. Ellen (verified owner)

    The chairs are beautiful, but each of them has 2 small blobs of excess varnish on the back of the seat frame. My husband thinks there is a problem in the manufacturing process. It’s not that obvious, but you should try to fix it.

  18. Mikael (verified owner)

    Materials and construction are excellent. Frame is hardwood. Seams and stitches are durable. What I saw is what I got.
