I have been looking for months for a classic casual dining chair that would stand up to years of heavy usage in my home. I found many chairs that had the look I was going for, but after being sat in by curious customers in the store, were already breaking and flimsy. I love the "schoolhouse" style and the braces on the sides, details that I find really charming. The chair is very comfortable to sit in, too! The only negative I can think of is that the chairs are a little more red than pictured (hence, the mahogany), so they don't quite match my table...the risk you take in getting separate pieces to fill a dining room, and one that I'm definitely willing to live with. They come fully-assembled, so be ready for big boxes and instant useability!

I'd ordered a single chair, from another source, and was horrified, at the lack of quality...so, I ordered the Flash Furniture School House Back
Wooden Restaurant Chair, from Amazon. It's extremely sturdy, and well-made. I'd definitely order this one, again.

Everything about this chair pleased the eye and hand at first. Heavy duty, well assembled, attractive finish. But then I noticed the all important back slats were not all the same shape. Some are straight and some are bowed. So the feel to ones back is uneven. Apparently the construction is careless, with some slats being of different lengths, so that when assembled some bow out more than others. This flaw is quite visible with only a brief inspection, detracts from the appearance, and suggests a significant lack of quality inspection before packing and shipping. I have not decided what to do, since now I recall having a similar problem every time I have purchased chairs and sofas that were shipped.

It seems that any time chairs are shipped and not bought straight off the showroom floor this is a risk. Of course the one you see online or in the store is chosen to be perfect, but that's not the one you get. If you get one that is perfectly made, this seems like a good chair, but I can't say what the odds of that are. Judging by these 8 reviews, two with quality issues, your odds are maybe 3 out of 4. I purchased mine from Noteworthy Goods. These were priced favorably to a similar looking chair I saw in Pottery Barn, but now I realize I may get a flawed one from them even if I pay their higher price.

I have not reported this to the shipper yet, and do not know whether I will have to bear the cost of shipping to return a flawed chair. I do not enjoy this process of repeatedly returning damaged or flawed goods that could have easily been detected before shipping. This is a very reasonably priced item and they may be tempted to cut corners in its production, but in my experience this can happen also with furniture from the very highest priced dealers.

I bought the first chair, and then ordered two more chairs. It is very well built, and marketed at a fair price. I saw the same chair offered on other websites for much more money.

Too bad they can't make chairs for this price in the USA. Fantastic quality, heavy, sturdy, and beautiful. Very nice for conference room tables, or for optician table's in an optical.

Good quality, heavy chairs. Much smaller than I expected. I ought to have paid attention to the measurements. On the plus side, they were already put together.

Chair arrived assembled. There are extra metal brackets on the under side of the support bars. Pleasant to sit in.

We had trouble finding a chair to use by the computer that would stand up with use by my a-little-larger-than-average son. It's very comfortable for being a hard wooden chair, and has a durable finish.

I have to say I'm conflicted over how many stars to give this chair, because it has so much promise but ultimately does not deliver. I read the reviews before ordering and crossed my fingers that I would not be one of the unlucky ones to receive a damaged pair of chairs. I was not lucky. Both chairs came damaged in different ways. One chair had a deep ding in the side bar, such that the wood there was chipping off. Also, the stain was not evenly applied and it was very noticeable in prominent areas of both chairs.

It's really a shame because these chairs feel sturdy and have a wonderful design. They are basically a knock off of the Pottery Barn Stella school house chair, which is twice as much.

We are returning both chairs and are not willing to take another risk.

Update: The return process has become ugly - buyer beware. I received an email stating that photos of the defects were required before the return process could be initiated. I wrote a polite email back stating that within 5 minutes of opening the box, I had packed the chairs back up in the original packing materials and sealed up the box, and that I did not feel it was fair that I should have to re-open the box, unpack the chairs, take them out and photograph them, then upload the photos to a file on my computer, then send in an email. I received another stock email stating the same thing, no acknowledgement of my objections at all. I then wrote a not so nice email and also called customer service. This is a drop shipping company and they state that the manufacturer requires them to do this, but that they will pass on my objections and see if something can be done. I have never had a company require this for a newly received but defective item. I will never buy from this company again, needless to say. If they continue with this ridiculous requirement, I will be forced to take other measures to get these returned and my money back.

2nd Update: TWO MONTHS later and I'm STILL waiting for this company to send UPS to pick up these chairs and credit my account. I ended up disputing the charge with the credit card company and that has also not been satisfactory though I'm still waiting to hear more information. Now waiting for Amazon to get involved and help end this nightmare. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY! I've actually never had an experience like this with a merchant before.

As far as I am concerned, this chair is unsurpassed in both finish and build. It arrived in flawless condition, fully assembled with no parts missing, shipped and sold by Amazon. This is a rather heavy chair made for durability. No matter how hard you, your family or your company are on chairs, you will wind up willing these chairs to the next generation.
