    This was a gift sent out of state, so I have not yet seen it in person, but the photos are fabulous! The engagement I encountered with your customer service department was outstanding. All my needs were met and beyond…I had minimal experience in relation to some of the artwork required to set the project in motion, but your team was able to handle it for me. I am THRILLED with the service I received and with the final end product!

  2. JARED (verified owner)

    The chairs are very sturdy and the personalization is GREAT! Love them!!!

  3. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great customer service!

  4. Stephanie Vazquez (verified owner)

    Great quality! Great customer service! And my logo looks great!

  5. William H. (verified owner)

    The chair is beautiful! Very well made, and exactly what we were hoping for!
    My only complaint is that it would be good if you could arrange some shipping alternatives beyond just a single $30 flat fee. Thanks!

  6. Brittany (verified owner)

    I would do business with The Chair Store again and again!

  7. Charlene Pike (verified owner)

    Wonderful customer service and great product!

  8. Stephanie Taylor (verified owner)

    Omg the quality is great, easy to put together, and looks good made for a boss… i love it thank u

  9. Lisa H. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality! These chairs were made so well and came with simple instructions to complete assembly (just add seat and backrest). They made very nice gifts!

  10. Janice N. (verified owner)

    The chairs and covers are nicely made. I have one issue…the footrest is not straight, it’s off by about 3/4 of an inch. It doesn’t harm the functionality of the chair, but it would be nice if it were level.

  11. Shauri Alonso (verified owner)

    A very pleasant experience from start to finish.

  12. Diane V. (verified owner)

    Very comfortable and fairly easy to carry. Love the footrest which does not need to be unscrewed each time the chair needs to be folded.

  13. Rochelle Forman (verified owner)

    Customer service was amazing and chair arrived on time. My son LOVED it!!!

  14. Truett Buie (verified owner)

    Great design and quality

  15. Magdalena B. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality, really gorgeous chair. The embroidery also looks great. Would totally recommend.

  16. Linda Lewis (verified owner)

    I did not purchase the 24. I purchased the 30”.

  17. Margaret Alvarez (verified owner)

    We love the chairs that we ordered. I have been looking for truly “folding” chairs for a long time. The only issue is that the foot of each chair is not flat on the floor and so it is necessary to actually use a saw to make them flat in order to put a non-scratch pad on them. But other than that, they are perfect!

  18. Ceantel R. (verified owner)

    I adore my chair! Exactly as described, and very well made.

  19. ANNA (verified owner)

    Really great customer service, super quick turnaround time, and the chair looks awesome!

  20. Heidi Thompson (verified owner)

    Chair looks great and seems sturdy. Should be perfect for my EXPOs when we can get back to those.

  21. Bruno B. (verified owner)

    Beautiful well-made chair. Wouldn’t trade this for a cheap Walmart one ever.

  22. Ryan (verified owner)

    I love my new chair ! I got so many compliments and everyone asks me where I got it from. Couldn’t be more happy I wish I could post a pic of it in the reviews

  23. Lia (verified owner)

    I love the customization these offer–I have a kneeling chair and wanted something I could switch off with during the day. The counter-height option was ideal, and the chair can fold up to tuck next to my desk when it’s not in use. The style and colors are perfect for the room decor. Wonderful craftsmanship. It’s exactly what I was looking for.

  24. Anonymous (verified owner)

  55. Kevin (verified owner)

    I bought an embroidered chair for my wife for Christmas. Not only did the chair arrive in time (very tight deadline), it looked fabulous. I could not recommend The Chair Store any higher if you are looking for a directors chair.

  56. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Good height for individuals that are on the short side…already ordered 2 more but bar height since my son is taller than the rest.

  70. Rick M. (verified owner)

    Very comfortable chairs, and the 24 height is very convenient for those suffering “unseating” difficulty.

  71. Nick Masi (verified owner)

    Great quality. Arrived fast!

  74. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Chair is beautiful! Customized, embroidered logo looks perfect, thread color is perfect as well. I couldn’t be happier with this chair!!

  75. Brent Harding (verified owner)

    The chair is great and just perfect for our guest room. However, the chair did arrive with imperfections in the wood finish (rough arears of grain lift and raised drips/runs). The one front wooden cross member has what appears to be a black streak from a presumed permanent marker. Not a major deal but it was a bit disappointing.

  76. Elizabeth H. (verified owner)

    high quality

    The chair is amazing. It was perfect!
