Perfect Contrast!

from Charlotte, NC – Verified Buyer

Love it! Having bought this chair previously in crystal clear (sadly lost in a real estate transaction), I wanted to try it in Transparent Smoke Grey. I was afraid that it would be too dark (The photo shows darker than the chair I received.) but was very pleasantly surprised! The chair has perfect contrast to illustrate what this design is all about without the unintended glare of the crystal clear. I still like the crystal clear enough that I have a bar stool in clear but if you're ready to try something different, you can go wrong with the grey!

Clearly Gorgeous

from Birmingham, MI – Verified Buyer

As always, Kartell delivers the perfect balance of quality and style with these fun, versatile, and durable chairs. I love that they are light enough for me to easily move to the dining room for larger dinner parties, as well as how they offer unobtrusive seating throughout my home. And, they are surprisingly comfy, especially for not being upholstered! I use one for my home office chair, and I am able to sit comfortably for several hours at a time. They remain a classic for a reason - you truly can't go wrong!

The real thing

from Atlanta, GA – Verified Buyer

This chair is lovely, sturdy, and "normal" size. There are a lot of cheaper ghost chairs but if you read the reviews the common complaint is they are "petite" (read "too small") for versatile use, and that they feel flimsy. Cheap out at your peril. Who wants a chair that looks dumb and you are afraid to sit on. I got the genuine chair on sale for just a bit more than the fakes and got free shipping. I feel secure in my purchase. Also, there is something to be said about supporting a company that has a long and substantial history of making good products that you can be proud of. All+Modern kept me updated on shipping and when received, the chair was perfectly packed so in perfect condition. I couldn't be more pleased.

from Council Bluffs, IA – Verified Buyer

The chair arrived in 2 days in perfect shape and was better than I expected! In our home we have modern art but traditional furnishings. This chair was the perfect bridge of those two things. Now I know why I see it so much in home decorating magazines. The plan is to pair this chair with an antique library table in our home office. I was surprised by how comfortable it was to sit in. Absolutely love it!! I may need to order more!

I bought 4 of these chairs and paired it with the Saarinen tulip table with carrera marble top in my kitchen. I get compliments on the chair from everyone who sees it. It's an eye catcher and beautiful to look at. It's also sturdy and well built considering it's a expensive plastic chair. I clean off the fingerprints and dust with a soft microfiber cloth or towel.

So glad we bought these!!

from East Setauket, NY – Verified Buyer

I bought 5 of these for our eat in kitchen. We were looking for something that was indestructible as we have two small children. The only clean up is some small fingerprints that can be taken off with soap and water. We purchased faux fur to put on when the grown-ups are having company.

Wow, the black is beautiful!

from Saint Charles, IL – Verified Buyer

I ordered this chair and it came literally 2 or 3 days later in perfect condition! They packed it to nicely! It looks stunning right by my door. I wanted a place for my guests to sit and take their shoes off. I needed it to not take up a lot of room and it does just that! STUNNING. Pros: beautiful, classic, sturdy, space saver

I'm still in love!

from Bronx, NY – Verified Buyer

After coveting these chairs since the debuted, I finally purchased a whole bunch. I have 2 in my living room as accents and 4 at my dining table and one in my bedroom. They look great without being intrusive and everybody who comes over thinks they're great although I get a lot of "If I sit in this will it break?" I love my chairs :))

Beautiful and Comfortable!

from Honolulu, HI – Verified Buyer

This chair is a show stopper, clean and modern. It is also very comfortable and easy to sit in. I found someone on Etsy that makes really amazing cushions just for this chair! I ordered cushions in pink velvet. All Modern's shipping was quick, the chairs came in perfect condition and their customer service was fantastic.

from Mont-Royal, QC – Verified Buyer

Love these chairs! Very comfortable seating and stunning styling, yet so visually lightweight. They go perfectly well with any decor, particularly modern or transitional. I appreciate the lack of clutter even with eight chairs placed around the dining table. Cannot comment on durability-have only owned these for one week so far, but they seem really sturdy and solid. However, I have yet to find felt leg-tips that will stay on, to prevent loud scraping on the hardwood floor. The ones I usually use have all detached leaving sticky residue...
