Exceeds my expectations!
There were 3 delightful surprises with this purchase. First, it arrived three weeks earlier than originally stated. Second, the back legs are not flush with the seat of the chair. instead they extend out to the side between one and two inches with a curve at the top creating an added element of interest on this chair. Lastly, the top piece has a striped pattern inside the crystal band which changes in appearance depending upon the light. Absolutely beautiful!

love the chairs

from Escondido, CA on 02/20/2014 – Verified Buyer

We bought several Kartell chairs for our dining room. We love them all. They are sturdy as you expect from a dining chair and beautifully crafted. There was some damaged due to the factory packing (I think) but AllModern took good care of that and it was resolved. I really appreciate their responsive customer service.

I love my chairs

from Escondido, CA on 11/15/2013 – Verified Buyer

They look very contemporary and sleek, they are comfortable to sit on and they are heavy enough not feel 'flimsy' but like the decent chairs they are.

Crystal sparkling chair

This is a truly whimsical and sturdy chair. It is definitely a certain "style", but very fun and well-made

Great all purpose chair

from ridgewood, NJ on 11/05/2012 – Verified Buyer

A wonderful chair. Sturdy ,comfortable to sit on and attractive. Because of its transparency it is great for smaller spaces. Recommend.

Awesome quality and great design

from Chula Vista, CA on 02/20/2012 – Verified Buyer

I was at first worried that I would not see the difference from other less expensive transparent chairs, but that is not the case with this Kartell model. You can definitely see the quality and finish even from a distance. The plastic is free of any blemishes and looks solidly built. I did notice that on carpet there is some minor flex, so I would say it feels more secure on hardwood floors. Ergonomics are good, its just beautiful to look at that you sometimes worry too much of scratching it.

I paid what??

from Boston, MA on 02/20/2012 – Verified Buyer

I always thought these chairs look really cool, so I got the green accented one. I sort of thought they were semi-opaque or something. But the chair is white, and the top part with the color is striped because there are strips of the white plastic encased in green clear plastic, giving the striped effect.

It is cool looking, but not very substantial by look OR feel. I am tiny, weighing in at a little over 100 lbs and it wobbles when I sit on it. So, I'm just feeling like it's a pretty overpriced, modern design bauble.
