    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.

    I actually saw a similar version of these chairs in a bar / restaurant and i just knew they would be perfect with my dining table - turns out, I WAS RIGHT! They rock! So glad they were on the site

    Design is exceptional but would have preferred in a deeper, dark brown to match my dining room table

    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

    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!
