  53. Julia (verified owner)

    The chairs weren’t quite the quality of finish I was hoping for. Apparently this was in part because I selected the walnut stain which shows more aberrations. The Chair Store rectified the situation to my satisfaction and that’s what matters the most.

  54. Kathy Morton (verified owner)

    Excellent chairs. Very sturdy. Customer service is exceptional. Highly recommend getting color swatches as computer screens distort true colors.

  66. Carey O. (verified owner)

    This chair was a gift for my brother-in-law and he’s in love with it. Everything was perfect. The chair smelled pretty strongly of spray paint at first, so if you’re sensitive to that type of thing or gifting to someone who is, you’ll want to give it a chance to air out before using it.

  67. Juliana Cooper (verified owner)

    Absolutely fabulous! I thought about getting this for myself on a Tuesday, ordered that afternoon and it was delivered on that Friday! I just love my chair. So comfortable and I love that i can change the colors to go with my seasons!!

    Quality product and incredible service.

  76. Anonymous (verified owner)

    We are enjoying our chairs. They are clearly well made. The dowels to put the canvas seat on have to be an exact size for them to work correctly and one of ours was a little long. One of our chairs has one leg that is a little longer than the others, I would have sent it back but it settles evenly when someone sits in it. Other than those minor things the chairs are great. They work really well for our purposes and fold up nicely.

  77. Kathleen M. (verified owner)

    The color was just slightly different than the website which is to be expected, they sent swatches of the colors I wanted to try for my next order which really helped my decision. I would recommend doing this before ordering if you need exact colors.

    I love the chair. It is a wonderful accent chair that has a small footprint. It is a very serviceable chair for extra seating that can be stowed away. It is very portable and great to take along for outdoor events. The chair is also well made, sturdy and attractive. It was a great fit for my 6 foot friend. I purchased the chair height with natural wood and black seating. Looks really classic and sharp! Great gift and purchase!
