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.

Beautiful chairs for tall people

By Beergarden

from Pennsylvania

Pros

  • Durable finish
  • Easy to clean
  • Great Design
  • Love The Black Finish
  • 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.

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        We have owned a set of four Maple with charcoal stain for about 6 months. I fell in love with the design of these chairs, but ended up just 'settling' for everything else about them.

        Reviews about easily scratched finishes are spot on, and this is the most disappointing issue for me. We also had to send two back for exchange on arrival due to assembly defects (back brace was not glued in place)

        The chairs are passable in terms of comfort for dining, but we definitely don't like using them for anything else. They sit just a tad bit too low for our dining table, even with the available Jansen cushions, which I think we will attempt to remedy if we can find a good carpenter.

        Overall, I feel that these are a little too pricey when considering all of these factors, but it is difficult to find a similar design at any price point, so we are keeping them for now.

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        I bought this chair in maple with charcoal stain to go with our Ellis desk of the same. They are a perfect match for each other; the chair fits neatly under the desk and the stain and design are beautiful together. This chair would not be the best for those who sit extended periods of time as it doesn't have any lumbar support and isn't adjustable like a full computer/desk chair would be, however, it works very well for us as we only sit for shorter periods at our home office. In this context, it is a very comfortable, well-made chair. We love the minimalist, sleek design and would recommend it to others.

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        we have a smaller scale dining area, and these chairs are awesome. they tuck in under our table so all you see is the beautiful curved back peeking out. they're solid wood and not cushioned, so they're not the most comfortable chairs, but for what we use them for they work great. I do wish R&B had the option of custom seat cushions in any of their beautiful fabrics.

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        I love the look of these chairs... they aren't for everyone though! While very mid-century, I love the clean lines and paired the black ones with the Andover table in walnut. They have a a wide seat and are pretty comfortable for being a hard, wood chair. However, I have found that the finish scratches REALLY easily. It doesn't take much... the culprits in my house are denim rivets and my cat's back claws as he races by. I'm contemplating an exchange, even though I love them.

        Customer comments about Jansen Dining Chair:

        Beautiful design but flat finish is hard to keep looking good and scratches easily. I like that the chairs, back and all, fit neatly beneath table so the tabletop has a nice clean line. They are reasonably comfortable for an unpadded dining chair. The main reason we bought the chairs is the way they look.
