    • Material Description: Maple adds timeless warmth and lightness to your room. Even after maple is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New maple ranges in color from cream to gold and will beautifully deepen in gold tones over time.

    Great, comfortable chairs. Love the modern look with our 1920's classic architecture.

    After the delivery guys left, I noticed a small chip on one of the chairs. I notified our sales person and it was promptly replaced.

    Disappointed by how easily the wood gets indentations

      Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Upholstered Seat:

      Chairs look great, especially when paired with a metal and granite top table. However, within a day they started getting marked up when pushed against the table after somebody gets up from eating. Also, when turned upside down and put on top of the table so we could clean the floor. We're really no harder on chairs than most people. I don't recommend them for daily uses or kids. All four of ours looked really chipped up after less than a year.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was fine. I called about the indentation problem a week after we bought them and they weren't at all sympathetic. Response was that cherry wood is soft and we need to be gentle with them. If the salesman had pointed that out, I wouldn't have picked them. It's hard to be gentle with a chair you use multiple times a day.

        Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Upholstered Seat:

        We bought the walnut ones because they went to well with the table we have. Bought two arm chairs and 8 chairs without the arms. They were a bit pricey but once they were delivered we were so happy we paid the extra to get the walnut. They are beautiful and comfortable. Very clean lines.

        Service and delivery comments:

        OMG I can't say enough about the guys that delivered our furniture. We live on a small rural road out in the country. They brought that semi out the road and backed up the very narrow road to our house, with a smile on their face. They delivered the rain but took great care to keep the furniture covered. So pleased with the customer focus!

          I had been looking for a long time for dining room chairs to replace the ones we bought 38 years ago when we first got married. These were just the right size and they came in walnut which matches out table. I am extremely pleased with how they look and how comfortable they are to sit in.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The delivery went incredibly smoothly,on time, and the men took off their shoes off each time they came into the house.

            Expensive but solid chairs. Because of the low height they take up little visual space which is important in our small NY dining space.

              We had a mix-up, could be our fault and the chairs were delivered on-time but not in the color we expected. I went to the store and they arranged for the exchange at no cost. The exchange was done on schedule and we enjoy our new chairs.

              The best feature for me is that the product is made in the USA. We look for American made products and are glad to find a high quality service oriented retailer.

              I purchased these chairs in the maple shell stain with the granite sunbrella fabric. I use them with the Aria table which I purchased with the maple shell stain top and white base. The chairs are comfortable and look great with the table!

                These chairs are half the price of custom craftsman chairs made from the same materials. We wanted a chair that would look good with our craftsman style cherry table and these fit in nicely.

                The lower back makes them more kid friendly... we had kids climbing up our previous high back chairs and flipping them over. They also are more solid than other high back chairs that we have considered, and should last a lifetime.
