I have a lot of 50's modern oak and Eames pieces. These fit right in as a solid everyday chair. They side at my oak topped Nelson dining table.

The chairs are beautiful, well made and very affordable. The go nicely with my mid-century dining room. The color is not a true white, more like a cream but they look great done the less, I highly recommend these chairs.
Joanne from Weston, CT– Verified Buyer
My house is modern with lots of big, glass windows and hardwood floors throughout. These are perfect and extremely comfortable. I purchased them for the Span table which hasn't come yet but I think it will be a great look all around.
Worst chairs ever!
S Santin from Barrie, ON
Bought a set of four chairs and they started to fall apart after 3 months! Literally screws falling out of the seat backs onto the floor. After 1.5 yrs of NO WARRANTY we are shopping for replacements! $1100 gone! Ikea is a better product. DO NOT BUY THESE CHAIRS!
Not the color I expected
Linda Woll from Florida
The chairs are lightweight and comfortable but the cushions are far from the color expected. I could have gone with either white or black and chose white after much deliberation. What was received was very clearly cream. Doesn't look awful and after the huge hassels with delivery I decided to keep them but be warned... .if you need white you may not get it.

Great design, solid construction. Am pleased that they are not bright white more of a creamy white, Could you find a Styrofoam alternative for packing material, please.
Great Chair bur not really white.
Krista from DE
We purchased 6 of the WalnutWhilte chairs.The chairs are great quality, sturdy and comfortable but the picture and description say they are white, they are actually a cream or ecru color. After 4 weeks of shopping for bright white chairs then waiting 8 weeks for these to be delivered we decided to just keep them.
Laurie Ray from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer
We ordered 6 of these to use as dining chairs in the walnut wood finish and ivory leather. They are very small scale but they worked perfect for our modern design with a retro twist. Very comfortable also!
