    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut 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 walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.

    Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Wood Seat:

    The chair backs are a perfect height for my family because we're all on the shorter side, but I'm pretty confident that taller people would be comfortable as well. The chair as a whole seems indestructible and very soundly made; plus, it's a beautiful dark color that goes with the lighter walnut of my dining room table. One con is that people used to a cushion would find it uncomfortable to sit in this chair for too long, but this problem is easily solved by adding a chair cushion.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery and customer service were prompt and always accommodating.

          These were a little bit of a splurge for me, but so worth it! My kids are really hard on furniture and my old chairs literally broke underneath them, so I decided to get new ones that would last. They are beautiful, comfortable, easy to clean and feel really substantial. I am so happy I bought them!

            These chairs are beautiful, comfortable and sturdy. I looked everywhere for simple light wood chairs and these were by far the nicest ones I could find. I was looking for something less expensive, but once they arrived, I was glad I bought them. My kids are really rough on furniture and broke our old chairs. These are so much sturdier. I am so happy I bought them!

            Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Wood Seat:

            I purchased six Afton side chairs in walnut finish three years ago. I enjoy the clean look and the comfort they provide; however, they get dented very easily by simply touching the side of a hardwood dining table as you push them in after each use. Within a few months of gentle use, every chair around the dining table got dings on left and right sides of the back rest (where they touch the table). I consulted the Room and Board representative and learned that I can get them repaired at my own expense because it has been a while since I purchased the chairs, however the chairs will get dented again afterward. I would not recommend these chairs to others.

              Beautiful wood - the walnut is stunning. And the design is clean, modern, but still harkens to some tradition, so goes with a lot of home styles - shaker, transitional, and minmalist especially.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery guys were impeccable - removed their shoes, were very aware of not scratching our doors/walls/walnut floors. Very personable and nice as well. They do love their job!
