        Great design and functional. There were a few funny stitches on one of the cushions and Room and Board was so easy to work with to replace the cushion. You can always count on excellent customer service from R&B!

        I have been searching everywhere for kitchen chairs. I was skeptical about buying on line, so I went to the Soho showroom to see the product. I was very impressed with the high quality. I chose the leather seats and they are beautiful and very comfortable. The sales person was very helpful in helping me choose and processing my order.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I picked up my chairs at the Moonachie, NJ warehouse and it was so easy and convenient. The warehouse is immaculate and service was excellent.

          Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Upholstered Seat:

          I bought 5 of these chairs about a year ago. Four in ebony with otter seats are in my dining room and a maple with otter seat is in my home office where I have some Portico pieces and a custom designed console. These chairs get plenty of use and I've had no issues with construction. The seating fabric and cushions have held up nicely all this time and and still look like new. The fabric (suede) cleans beautifully. I'm not 100% happy with the ebony finish and won't buy any more of it because it's a bit too high maintenance. Fingerprints from normal handling show so the chairs need constant polishing. I would recommend them to a friend, but with that caveat.

            Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Upholstered Seat:

            These dining chars go perfectly with my zero 44" round dining table. My great room is small and these allow you to still see through the space since the backs of the chairs are low and they are not solid. They help the space feel clean and open. I have the walnut wood chairs combined with doria pepper. The wood quality is excellent and shows the lovely variations in walnut wood. The upholstery has been durable for the past year and provides cushion but not too much. My one suggestion is to improve the finish on the wood. Nicks in the finish happen easily and you can't fix them. I would prefer a hand oiled finish option for such a high quality wood. Many guests have complimented me on these chairs! These chairs are an investment and worth every penny.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Packaging of the chairs was excellent. Delivery was prompt and the freight was less than I was anticipating.

              I am really impressed with the quality and finish of these chairs. I purchased 6 Afton chairs in solid cherry wood with pistel ink leather seating. Also, using a Portica table (78" x 42") with frosted glass. The felt tips on the bottom of each leg are perfect for hardwood floors.

                    Q:

                    Would the charcoal or ebony finish go best with a Parson's table with natural steel legs?

                      A:

                      Either the charcoal or ebony finish would look great with the Parsons table. The charcoal finish is slightly more translucent allowing the natural wood grain to show through, whereas the ebony is more matte.
