Baxton Studio Pascal Plastic Mid-Century Modern Shell Chair : Great! (especially for the price)

We just got the chairs today and i have to say, really great product for a knock off. They are matte white, but i knew this and was ok with it. They assembled easy, except for one bolt on one chair(we bought 4). My husband was able to get it in but he thought he was going to have to bust out his tap and die set to clean up the thread inside the chair. Luckily he was able to get it in without resorting to that. All the other bolts went in fine. They are extremely comfortable and i love how deep set they are so my toddler can sit in them easily. Obviously the trained eye can tell they are knock offs, but i actually like the look of these better than the metal base eames.

Great – but get some loc-tite too. The chairs are great – easy to assemble, nice to sit in (as i’m typing). But the bolts that keep the chair affixed to the base slowly work themselves loose after you move around in the chair for a day-or-so. A little ‘thread-lock’ like loc-tite worked wonders to resolve that problem. After spending 2 minutes a day retightening the chair every couple of days. I’ll probably buy more in the future tho’. I’ve still got plenty of loc-tite lift.

Baxton studio fiorenza chair. I just received my chairs and i couldn’t be happier. They were packaged carefully and were so simple to put together. Literally 4 screws inserted and they’re ready for use.How anyone could not be happy with the quality and presentation of these chairs for the price is beyond me. No, they’re not the actual ‘eames’ version made of fiberglass. They’re formed plastic but still very good quality. I’m using them as guest chairs in my office and they’re perfect. I must say the customer service with amazon was above and beyond.I had a mix up (my fault) with the shipping and they quickly corrected my mistake and they arrived on time.

I only needed one to use as a desk chair in my new office but we love them so much the second is being used as extra seating in the living room. Great versatile chair that can easily go from room to room over the years as your style changes. One thing i will say that i was not expecting is the plastic of the chair is sort of an odd texture. I guess i was expecting smooth and shiny. But in the end i prefer the matte effect of the texture. And they are surprisingly comfortable as well which was a huge added bonus.

I got these to use as side chairs in my living room and couldn’t be happier. I wish i had the money for real ones but i paid $120 for the 2 chairs, real ones are ~$450 each. Assembly was straight forward and easy. They flex a little at the top of the back if you really lean back hard but they flex right back. They’re surprisingly comfortable considering they’re hard plastic chairs, i’ve sat in one for a while and had no complaints. If you have a need for some stylish chairs and can’t (or don’t want to) spend $450 a chair on the real ones, these are fantastic. Everyone that’s come over compliments them and i’m very happy with the look.

Baxton Studio Pascal Plastic Mid-Century Modern Shell Chair, Red, Set of 2 : As some of the other reviewers posted, it is indeed an amazing chair for the price. Very quick to assemble and arrived packaged with care. They are plastic and white (i was hoping for a more ivory/cream but they are white) and if you look closely you may be able to tell they are not more expensive. But overall it raises the cool factor of the room and definitely mimics the eames look very well. I am super happy with the product. The one less star is because i am a new owner and not sure about it’s durability and weight considerations (i am petite and average height so am concerned if it can take weight for slightly bigger people) but i guess i’ll just wait to find out.

Modern style at a price that an average family can afford. These chairs look fabulous, just as they are pictured. They’re sturdy & easy to assemble. For those of us who love modern design but can’t afford four hundred bucks for a chair, these fit the bill nicely. The only thing i was surprised by was the feel of the seat of the chair. I was expecting a smooth fiberglass feel, but they are molded plastic & they feel like it with a sort of ‘orange peel’ texture. This is not a problem for me, just pointing it out fyi. I’d definitely recommend these to a friend.

I’ve had these chairs for a week now and so far i love them. I’m tall stocky guy and i have no problem with them, in fact just like another reviewer said, these chairs will have you sitting in proper posture but it is comfortable. My one piece of advice is that since they are white some items will mark them, like my new pair of jeans that left a blue mark where i was sitting, so just know that you will need to clean them since white shows everything. Clean white eraser sponge, it works great.
