Amazing chairs! The straps are thick and the entire chair is made really well. I don't think I will have any problem with them lasting a long time. The seats have a few more inches on them in terms of width than the chairs I used to have. They are proving to be good for heavier set people.

The straps are stiffer than I thought they'd be, but they are really good quality for the cost of them. They came put together already so it saved me from having to assemble them myself. The color of the wood is practically identical to the table I have them with too. All in all, I made a great decision in getting them.

The seat is incredibly attractive, the angle on it gives it that contemporary edge while the weave gives it a homely, cottage feel - i've seen nothing like them anywhere else!

would have preferred in red
January 10, 2019
I love the way these chairs look, especially the weave pattern but I would have preferred in a bold red color, I think next time I won't be so quick to jump the gun because the white isn't doing it for me the way I thought it might

Nice, but...
April 1, 2018
I purchased one of these chairs for my bedroom. It took almost three months for it to be delivered. It's beautiful and well-constructed, but there's one serious (in my estimation) design flaw. The straps look great except on the back of the chair. They are secured by small pieces of white metal and tiny screws. It's not obvious if the chair is sitting against a wall, but if you use it as a dining chair, the metal and screws are obvious. This site doesn't show you the back of the chair in the photos and that's disappointing. If I'd seen how the straps fastened, I wouldn't have bought the chair. I still like the chair, but I think they could have figured out a better design for the backside. I'll concede, however, that this might bother me more than some people.

really like but needed to order more!!
February 12, 2018
These were exactly what I wanted, everything I hoped they would be and I am thrilled they are finally here - however and this is the kicker - I ordered a new dining table AFTER ordering these and my new dining table is much larger than my old one so I have to order more of these chairs but because I ordered the custom options it takes longer so now I have to wait again for my set to be complete - kind of a shame but I have to say these are excellent and will look even better once I receive the others
