        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.

              Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Wood Seat:

              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!

                Chairs are beautifully made with a contoured seat that make them great for long periods of sitting. They have a danish modern yet traditional style and fit into any decor.

                    Customer comments about Afton Side Chair with Wood Seat:

                    I was intriged by the reviewer that reccommended going to South Cone to look for a better built and less expensive chair than the Afton Side Chair in walnut. No way can you find a comprable alternative at South Cone. It's not even in the same catagorey of the kind furniture that Room and Board sells. The suggestion is an odd one. First, this chair is so study you could beat it with a baseball bat and it would not break or even wobble. And second, you could probaly find something else cheaper at South Core but it would be an entirely different aesthetic. They have nothing even remotely as simple and well designed as this chair. I would also like to note that the Afton comes in leather as well. And it is lovely with or with out.
