Sturdy, easy to maintain, and great design
Justin from Oak Park, IL – Verified Buyer
We bought four of these chairs with the intention of using them on our patio, but they looked so good with our dining table that we returned our original dining chairs and used these instead. Out of the four chairs, only one had any issues - it was slightly uneven and wobbled when not sat on - but we were able to get a refund and order a replacement, so all is well.

My husband and I bought these chairs to go with a stainless steel table with glass top and it looks fantastic! And they're surprisingly comfortable as well. The only complaint I really have is: if you have hardwood floors (and we do), it's harder to find little felt pads for the feet (that won't pop off when you sit down), which are very necessary other wise you can't move across the floor without sounding like you're scratching it up! But we found some in a pack at Lowe's and all is good!
I've had these chairs since 2003 and they still look new
Kim from Brooklyn, NY
Bought a set of 4 in 2003, loved them then, still love them now. You can wipe them down with glass cleaner, the light gray color seems to still work with changing design trends. Considering 2 more now, so easy to stack and keep around for bigger dinner parties. While they will never be as comfortable as upholstered chairs, they're comfortable, sturdy, and well-made enough to suit my needs.
Comfortable and Elegant
David from Palm Springs, CA – Verified Buyer
I'm very pleased with these chairs. The design is graceful, sleek and elegant, and the craftsmanship very nice. They are very comfortable, and coordinate beautifully with my 60s and 70s furnishings, indoor and out. They were not packed particularly well and arrived with a couple of minor scrapes on the seating surface of the chair stacked on the bottom (of 2), hence 4 stars rather than 5. Otherwise they're great.
Gregory from San Francisco, CA – Verified Buyer
The chair looks great in person, is lightweight and comfortable, and stacks very easily. I bought 4 of these in the pale green color years ago, for a client and they have held up very well. This time I purchased 4 in the light grey color for myself, and I am very happy with the decision.
Easy to clean
Taik from Granada hills, CA – Verified Buyer
Love the modern look. It is easy to clean since its plastic. The only problem I have with this light chairs are extremely light, so my kids easily move them around and there is possibility of them falling down. Beside that, I strongly recommend them for daily use.

Styling looks great and surprisingly comfortable for a plastic molded chair. A little petite for my breakfast room but will serve as great xtra chairs to fit more people at the table after I find the permanent chairs for the room.
Amy from California – Verified Buyer
I bought these quite i while back and i love them. They are sturdy and well made. Great quality for the price
Day from Lancaster, PA – Verified Buyer
The chair had great lines, is very light weight and is stack able. I bought it for practical reasons but it really has great style. Also it is quite comfortable.
A Great Chair
Derek from Omaha, NE – Verified Buyer
I wanted to order a group of 6 chairs for a dining table I had purchased, and wanted something with a small appearance for the small space. These chairs did not disappoint, but still sturdy enough to stand up to regular use.
