House by John Lewis Jasper Dining Chair
We bought six of these chairs, in three different colours, last year. When the delivery driver dropped them off he warned us that they could get damaged quite easily and so to take care putting them together. Assembly was fine and straightforward. But within a few weeks, paint began to chip off the chairs, even those that we hardly use. Within two months they looked very much the worse for wear. And unfortunately it's not just the paint - now there are grooves and dents all over the seats, made by the studs you often get on pairs of jeans. All in all, very disappointing. Definitely a case of style over substance.

We were very pleased with our dinning table and chairs.
The chairs were easy to assemble and felt sturdy and comfortable to sit on.
They are easy to clean and wipe away any dirt.
We have chosen to go for a variety of coloured chairs which all compliments each other. The chairs are vibrant and work nicely against the white table.
Would definitely recommend this dinning table and chairs.

Fab kitchen chairs
We ordered 6 of these as our previous chairs needed replacing but our table was still in good condition. They were quick to assemble, very good value compared to many similar products and the choice of colours gives great flexibility. They are a stylish, practical product at an excellent price.

The chairs were easy to put together and a brilliant colour. I was worried as other reviews implied that the chairs were not strong but in my opinion they are fine.

Not built to last
Chairs look great but we have had 8 just over two years and they are now beginning to splay out on the 5 we use regularly. The paint chips easily where you push them into the table but my main concern after reading reviews on here was legs splaying or collapsing. If you try and bend them back in the chairs become completely wobbly. John Lewis have just replaced 2 chairs which was better than nothing as they were out of guarantee however if you have a hard floor(ours is wood) then 2 years doesn't seem a long time for the chairs to last. I now haven't got much faith in the others to sit on for long but they still look great!

So far so good!
Decided to go ahead with the purchase despite the mixed reviews,although to hedge our bets just ordered 2 two green to try ! And so far so good. Delivered early in the morning and had them both constructed (within minutes, no DIY tools needed) before breakfast.
They feel very solid and comfortable, perfect for our kitchen/diner (tiled flooring) and we will certainly be ordering another four . Love the bright colours so will mix n match to suit. Hoping the wear n tear issues of others isn't a problem, so for now would recommend.

Don't waste your money
My daughter bought 4 of these chairs a year ago, hoping they would be a good purchase. 2 of the four now have paint so badly chipped on the top of the chair when they are handled to move to sit at a table. The two she does not use are fine, so they are not built for use but look very nice if not used.They look very tatty and although cheap to buy are a false economy, my advice……don't waste your money

Style but substance lacking
These chairs arrived and were relatively easy to assemble and look very nice. However, similar to other reviews (I have now read), they are not at all that sturdy and indeed one collapsed underneath one family member on the 3rd day of use. I am currently seeking a replacement but am now nervous of overall quality and therefore safety.
