A couple of months ago, I finally pulled the trigger on the dining chairs from Overstock that I posted about back in December. I knew I had to have them when I ordered what I thought were very similar chairs from the Weirs Outlet for a client's dining room... I "conveniently" had her chairs delivered to my house before installation, and tested them out around my own dining room table...I was immediately sold! I actually wasn't even aware that they were the EXACT same chair until my Overstock chairs were delivered...I just figured they were very similar.
A few months later, after seeing this particular chair all over blogland, I knew I needed to act fast as I suspected they would sell out in no time. I was right!
I thought I scored big when I purchased my client's chairs from Weirs Outlet at $200 a piece until I ordered mine from Overstock on sale for $93 a piece -- plus free shipping!
Unfortunately, I don't have great photos of my new dining chairs in action just yet. As I stated in last week's post, I had planned on photographing many of my recent projects before my due date in May, but this unexpected hospital bed rest has really thrown things off track. However, I promise to get pics posted asap! Here is a not-so-great sneak peek from an iPhone pic to hold you over until then...
While I am aware that there are similar chairs at local retailers, what I love about these chairs is that the back is very thick with a substantial amount of padding allowing for deep tufting. They were easy to put together (I mean, they were easy for me to watch them being put together by my husband :-)) and they are very sturdy! I have no complaints, except for the fact that they are now sold out!
But don't worry, if you are in the market for linen dining chairs, Overstock has other fabulous options for you to choose from such as these:
So what do you think about Overstock's inventory of dining chairs? Have you seen anything similar for a comparable price??
