refined and beautiful
March 20, 2018
I just received the chair I ordered and I am delighted. It excels in all the details; the joinery in the three piece backrest carefully emulates the original, as does the smooth joining of the legs to the arm rests. The shaping of the armrests has been achieved with a precision that is almost delicate, and is a close match with the original. It is an exceptional piece of furniture at a very reasonable price. You obviously take care when you ship your pieces - all the corners and edges of the shipping carton were reinforced, ensuring that the chair arrived in perfect condition. Your attention to detail pays off.
exceptional craftsmanship and close adherence to the original design none

Lovely, solid, well made chairs of beautiful black walnut. These look great and are very comfortable. The seats are exceptionally wide and the armrests broad and comfortable. I think we're going to love having these in the dining room.

Ability to customize these was the MAIN attraction for me! Light walnut and merlot, I have never seen this style of chair + colors I've chosen anywhere else, I was growing so sick of seeing the same furniture in most of my friends and family members homes. Excited to have ones that are truly different!

The finish of the Kennedy Arm chairs and Elbow Style chairs will be the same, as long as you order them at the same time, so that the wood used is from the same batch. We do not have any photographs of the chairs with a dining room table at this time.
