    • 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 Jansen Side Chair with Wood Seat:

    we purchased 6 chairs- the first time 4 had huge blemishes from poor workmanship. They delivered 4 new chairs and two of the seats fell off when we were checking them-- again poor quality. The third attempted yielded 2 good ones- awaiting on two replacements. For the money the workmanship and quality if horrible- very disappointed as we have bought many pieces over the years from Room and Board

    Service and delivery comments:

    Sales people are awesome and very customer oriented- still waiting on resolution of poor quality and so far three deliveries and still not resolved

      Best Uses

      • Dining Room

      Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

      I love the design of these chairs, and was surprised at the low price. I was suspicious about the quality at that price point, but inspected the chairs carefully in a showroom, and they're very well made. The only downside is that the seats are not quite level, so without a pad, you might slide backwards. Pads are available, but at $100 each, quite overpriced.

      Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

      Love the look of this chair, however, my dining table has a live edge to it and when scooting the chairs underneath the table it scrapes the top of the chair causing it to take away the charcoal stain and show the lighter wood underneath. I called R&B about a charcoal stain stick of some sort but they don't carry anything (but advised me to search online). So now I have to figure out how to treat the chairs accordingly. All that said, I love the look of the chairs and plan to keep them.

      • Quality construction

      Cons

      • Too Big For Me I'm 5"4"

      Best Uses

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        Bought four of these a year ago to go with my Andover walnut dining table. Two of the four came with paint defects and had to be replaced. They look GREAT with the table and they seem sturdy and the black finish is lovely! However, they don't seem that comfortable to me. I'm 5"4" and if I sit back my feet don't touch the floor. They are a bit bulky in size for my small dining room.

            Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

            There are so many great chairs to choose from at this store that we had difficulty in picking one out. We were replacing old chairs and a table but these needed to be able to do "heavy duty" in that they are used lots all day long. We also needed a chair with an arm support for reading the paper etc. Before selecting these, we visited a store to sit in them and were sold. They are very comfortable, easy to clean and they look sharp in black with our frosted glass Parsons table.
