    • Material Description: Cherry adds timeless warmth and character to your room. Even after cherry 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 cherry ranges in color from light brown with pink undertones to reddish brown and will beautifully darken to a deep, reddish brown over time.

    Customer comments about Doyle Side Chair with Wood Seat:

    I hesitated for weeks before buying these chairs to go with my new Adams Dropleaf Table. I sat on every chair in the R&B store and kept coming back to this deceptively simply model. And I could not be more pleased with my choice. They lines are graceful but the feel is solid and substantial. The subtly rounded backs and contoured seats are surprising comfortable through a leisurely meal; the slightly tapered legs lighten the look. I use the table and chairs for dining in front of a sunny window in a small apartment, and as an auxiliary writing desk. I also work extensively with fiber and yarn, and was delighted to discover that these chairs are perfect for spinning -- the wood even goes well with my rimu wook spinning wheel. I am looking forward to watching the pale cherry wool darken and become richer in time. Only one concern: the glides at the bottom of each leg tend to catch on my sisal carpet and I suspect they may pull off at some point. But that's a minor and fixable point.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I was given a choice of delivery dates via phone call and email, and on delivery day I was phoned with a more precise time window. The delivery men were pros: the did the unwrapping and minor assembly on the table with great efficiency and neatness, placed the pieces according to my directions, and were unfailingly courteous and pleasant. The best!

    Second time one of our Doyle chairs has broken

        Customer comments about Doyle Side Chair with Wood Seat:

        See my review below at the broken chair at Thanksgiving. Room & Board replaced that chair and assured me that the broken chair alone came from a defective batch. They had me check the serial number on the other chairs and assured me none of them were from the defective batch. Last night, we had guests over, one of them leaned back slightly, and another of our Doyle chairs broke in the exact same manner as the first one. Will be returning all of the chairs that we bought and exchange them for another design.

        Customer comments about Doyle Side Chair with Wood Seat:

        Bought these to match our brand new Room & Board dining table. We love the look and feel of them, but one broke this evening during the middle of Thanksgiving dinner when a guest leaned back to stretch. We've only had them a few weeks, so this came as a complete shock. I'm hopeful that it's a design flaw in this particular chair and room & board will help us sort it out.

            Customer comments about Doyle Side Chair with Wood Seat:

            We put these around our kitchen table. They are very clean and simple-looking. They are surprisingly comfortable. The back of the chair is a good height and the curve of it makes it easy on the back. I love how lightweight the chairs are too as we have wood floors and I was afraid a heavy chair would scratch it. The "feet" come covered with rubber tips and felt pads, which help with this too.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Great buying experience from start to finish. The gentleman in the Chicago store was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The deliverymen were courteous and patient.

                Customer comments about Doyle Side Chair with Wood Seat:

                Like most things in furniture, quality craftwork is something you pay for, and is only tested over time. I purchased these chairs ASSUMING that the quality would be good. However, I am sad to say that I have been disappointed. In short, over a short period of time, 2-3 months, the black phillips head screws that hold the seat to the frame become loose and require tightening. Repeatedly, in the process of tightening, the screw hole no longer holds the screw and the screws fall out. One either has to buy longer screws, or use wood glue to hold them in place. Without the screws, the wooden seat becomes loose and will fall off. Not great and certainly not safe. So, a design adjustment is needed with these chairs. Now I have 8 reminders of poor design and constant upkeep; not what I expected or wanted. I am disappointed.

                  These are gorgeous chairs! We purchased 6 of them to use with the Adams table, all cherry wood, and they look terrific together. They are all very well made, extremely aesthetically pleasing, and a perfect fit for our small condo. Comfortable too!
