      Customer comments about Emmet Lounge Chair:

      These chairs are great, but difficult to assemble. Just a note to single women buying these chairs - make sure you have a strong friend helping - the screws are very difficult to tighten, you're best to use your intuition to put it together because the directions are very sketchy.
      I've always prided myself on being a 'Rosie the Riveter' and these chairs were a challenge. Once you get the first one done though, the rest are much, much easier. Although tightening the screws are still a challenge.

        Perfect chairs to enjoy the cool of the evening and view off our deck. They are attractive on their own as well. Our only quibble was that the easy assembly was anything but. Room and Board was responsive and helpful as always.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt, and product arrived in excellent condition. Customer service was stellar in response to our challenges with assembly.

          Love the design and quality, but had to return these sculptural beauties because they were not comfortable. Room and Board's customer service is wonderful. We have many pieces of Room and Board furniture in our home, and will buy anything we can from them in the future. Check R and B first before you shop anywhere else.

          Customer comments about Emmet Lounge Chair:

          I've assembled two of the four chairs so far. They are nice looking durable chairs. It takes about 1 - 1.5 hours per chair to assemble, and on the first one, I made a mistake I have to correct. I think the directions for assembling the front panel isn't clear, and I put it on upside down. This means that the middle support isn't actually supporting the chair, which means I have to make sure a heavy person doesn't sit on that chair until I have time to fix it. I'd say that for the amount of money, I would have expected the chair to come assembled.

          Also, I knew this beforehand, but the chairs are not terribly comfortable. You need a cushion if you're sitting on it for a long time.

              Really great chair - stylish, durable, easy to clean, no fading and heavy so they won't blow around in strong wind. Only down side is price, they are a bit low to the ground and difficult for older people to get out of the chair. They also get super hot in the sun, unlike other materials, so you definitely need a cushion or pillow to keep from scorching your legs in the summer.

              We ordered 2 chairs in orange for our front patio; they arrived promptly and were easy to assemble. They are comfortable for my 5'2" frame and my son's 6'4" frame. We love the distinctive look of this Adironack style. It's not the same look as every other house on the street and it adds a nice splash of color to our patio. The bottle opener is much admired by the neighbors. We are thinking about getting a couple more but they are a little pricey so maybe next year.

                  A:

                  The sun is very hard on materials that have constant direct exposure and we cannot guarantee the
                  material color will not change over time. The HDPE used in the Emmett collection has a UV
                  stabilizer and is very resistant to fading. The color is not a finish coat; it is a pigment embedded in the
                  material throughout.

                  There is a slight texture to the recycled polyethylene material used on the Emmet collection. Texture would be comparable to that of an orange peel.
