Customer comments about Soren Dining Chair:

I love the look of the chairs. However, whenever I put a fabric on the chairs, say a sweater or pillow, an imprint of the creases of the fabric are left on the chair. I am constantly using Pledge to "erase" the imprint. It is not the result of weight, but it just seems the chemical reaction of the fabric on the chair finish causes something to happen. I've never seen this before and it concerns me about the future wear of the chairs. Aesthetically, they are beautiful and extremely comfortable. But I am a nut about quality.

    Customer comments about Soren Dining Chair:

    These chairs in walnut are gorgeous. The craftsmanship is beautiful, every time I look at them I am glad I decided to pay a bit more for something I LOVED. We paired them with a very simple modern plank table and it really worked to mix styles, actually making the table look more attractive.

      This is a great dining chair that makes a simple statement. It's functional yet looks amazing:) We added these to our already made cherry table so when they came they were much lighter than expected, but I think they will darken over time. I've already had comments from friends about how great they are.

      Customer comments about Soren Dining Chair:

      We have a small apartment, but wanted to get nice chairs that we can have with us through the years. The lines on these are beautiful. I'd always been in love with the Wishbone chair, but when my boyfriend sat in it, he said it was too uncomfortable. I'm so glad those didn't work out, as the Soren chairs are just (if not more) aesthetically pleasing (as well as comfortable). The walnut finish is absolutely beautiful. Hopefully, we'll have a bigger table in the future to purchase more!

        We spent a long time looking for dining chairs to replace our existing chairs. We wanted something a little unique with a good choice of woods so we could blend the chairs with a light wood dining table. These chairs have a nice design, nice finish and solid.

        Customer comments about Soren Dining Chair:

        Our black Soren dining chairs offer a great contrast to our Danish modern walnut dining table. They are reasonably comfortable for chairs that don't have cushions. Unfortunately, they are expensive and the dowels squeak when you move around. But they make a great statement and are wonderful to look at.

          Customer comments about Soren Dining Chair:

          We bought these in ebony to go with a walnut dining table. They look fabulous and we get tons of compliments -- even from another furniture builder! They pretty much "make" the room. Once we saw them, we knew we would never find any that we liked better, and even my very budget-conscious husband thought them to be the right pick. We like having non-upholstered dining chairs (we have toddlers) that still look very high-style.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I wouldn't gush if it wasn't earned, but I really can't think of a way Room & Board could improve its service. Every time I buy from them, absolutely nothing annoying happens. I cancelled this order, for example, when it was already on the truck in order to change my mind on the finish of the chairs and the fabric of a sofa I ordered. The whole hassle was absorbed by Room & Board at no cost to me, and they could not have been nicer about it.

            We bought a cherry pair to go with a mix of others (black Ikea/maple Paul McCobb) around our glass/aluminum dining table. These chairs are super comfortable. The shape of the taper at the ends of the top rail/arm rests is a really nice detail and the form feels great in the hand.

                Yes, natural cherry is one of the options for the Soren chair. We offer a black leather seat pad as an option but not an upholstered version of the Soren. Both options can be found by searching Soren but let us know if you'd like assistance. 800.301.9720
