Stylish and comfortable
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.

dynamic dining room
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

Very sturdy design, love the curvature on the legs, wood keeps them stable and prevents them from moving around

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!!

These chairs are lovely!
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!

fabulous design
It was definitely worth the wait as these are the exact chairs I wanted for my dining room but the time it took for the custom design to ship was longer than i wanted it to be

I had no idea molded plywood would feel this comfortable! I ordered 6 of these for our dining room set and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Thank you for making the process very easy as well!
