I purchased 6 of these chairs in American Walnut and they are beautiful. And surprisingly comfortable! I paired them with the Ragnarok Dining Table and I couldn't be happier!!! The chairs were very well packaged and arrived in perfect condition.

Its carved, cut-away style is interesting enough to have my 80-year-old grandpa ask me "where's the rest of it!?" He never notices anything and these caught his eye the second he came over. Proof that good style gets noticed! Also, he literally has had the same dust ruffled, floral printed dining chairs since before I was born, more proof his opposition to it means I did well! I love them. They make all my dining room furniture look new and improved too.

Cool chairs. Not bad for the price. They do have a vintage look. I chose them mostly for the color but I'm liking the back more and more each time I see them.

This design is famous for being one of the first of its kind using bentwood. I love having good repros of originals. It's crazy how it stood the test of time. I would have preferred a come down in the price for $150 or less, but i will say the build is better than decent quality.

Awesome design! They are much better than plain old wood chairs. I'm digging the shape of the back even more now. They got here a day earlier than expected too.

I love the finish especially the grain on them, its noticable. They don't look cheap in person even though the wood is thin. I'm happy with the price, it was a great deal.

brand new repros are better than potential fakes
January 28, 2020
Excellent reproduction of the original from the 1950s! They were selling only 2 of these chairs in an antique store and I am almost certain they weren't from the designer himself, they simply looked as if they werent taken care of by whoever owned them beforehand. It is much better to have purchased a complete set of new repros over a couple of "possible" originals.

These chairs were so easy to place in my home! The finish matched everything perfectly and the design sets it a part from some of the boxy, rectangular furnishings I have, it gives the space a more dynamic look and feel

Overjoyed to finally have my bentwood chairs! I've been looking forward to receiving them since my order and I couldn't be more impressed and proud of how flawless they look and how smoothly my shopping experience was! Fantastic from start to finish! THANK YOU!!

I was deciding between these chairs and the plywood lounge chairs, i chose these because of the shape of the back and legs, they are sleek with a more feminine shape about them, the form sort of resembles an hour glass, i made the right choice because it fits much better with the dining table i bought afterwards!
