          My house is a narrow victorian and our dining room is small and is part of the larger living space. I wanted low chair height to enhance the ceilings of the room and minimize a clutter feeling. These "captain" chairs and the accompanying side chairs are perfect. The go perfectly with our glass top dining table.

            Got the chairs in cherry to go with a custom made cherry table, I love that they are very sturdy but not heavy to move. Also like that the backs are not to high, very comfortable to sit on.

              The chair is recessed in the middle of the seat which makes it so very, very comfortable. I love, love the charcoal color.

                Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Wood Seat:

                Chair is exactly what I was looking for. Delivery was great, as usual! We love the chairs but have one disappointing comment. They dent easily! I have no clue why. All of our furniture in our home is solid cherry -- everything from dining room table to book shelfs, beds -- and none of our furniture dents easily except these chairs. For some reason this cherry wood is softer than what we have all of over the house. We have several dents already from just pushing the chairs in toward the table after we eat. And we are not a family with little kids. Now everyone has to be so vigilant about pushing the chairs in. I wonder what they are going to look like in a year -- I can already imagine! Too bad.

                We have a metal table with a granite top and the walnut chairs look great but we hadn't even used the chairs yet when we realized that as soon as you pushed in the chairs and they hit the metal (even gently), they were marked up. So after a couple of weeks they all have the same marks. However with 3 kids 7 and under they are virtually untipable so we will be keeping them, marks and all!
