We bought the Sourav dining chairs, bench and table. They are built solid and heavy. I love all the pieces and people who have seen it think we paid much more for it then we did.
We love these chairs, beautiful wood. We already had a table, and were trying to find some chairs to match, and these chairs look great with our table, would recommend them, very sturdy and comfortable.
We bought the sourav table, chairs, and bench for our formal dining room and the square sourav table with four additional chairs. We also have the sourav hutch. I thought the stain and style were perfect. But the wood isn't sealed and quickly dried out and looked chalky and dull and cracked. I researched and talked to the store employees. I started using large amounts of lemon oil weekly and this prolonged their life all this time. What a lot of work! Also, i won't recommend these tables for regular use. I didn't clean them with anything other than a soft cloth, water, and a bit of soap. Even water strips the stain. My mom moved in and has destroyed the stain almost completely in under 12 months using products that normal people wanting a clean table would use. Our chairs have been well used throughout the day for nine years and did not easily scratch until my new jeans with pretty pocket bling. So, cushions would help prevent that. Although I loved the collection, I am a low maintenance person and this furniture was not a good fit.
I really like these chairs. They are the perfect color for my house. They are simple and timeless. The reason they are not 5 stars is because as other reviewers have stated the quality control is terrible. I bought 6 of these chairs in store. I took them home and after assembling the first 3 I was thrilled at how great they are. Then the next 3 were all terrible. the joints were not connected all the way and parts of the chairs were not stained at all. (Not light stain but NO stain) I was extremely disappointed but I still liked the chairs and I already put three of them together so it wasn't worth returning them all. My husband went back to the store to exchange them and now one of those is horrible too. (again joints not connected) So I will be headed back one more time.. What a pain.
We already had the Sourav table, it was given to us for free for our lake house without any chairs. We found these chairs online and were a bit worried about ordering them without being able to sit in them. They are solid and well made and went great with our older table. We ordered the benches, too, but haven't put them together yet. I do wish the seat had the same finish as the table and benches though. It's fine since we will probably put a cushion on them anyway!
We've been living with our Sourav dining set (table, four chairs, and bench) for about 6 years now and we love it. We've sat up to 6 smaller children on the bench for meals. The table and bench have a rustic, durable, hammered finish. The only problem with the chairs is that they have a smooth finish on the seat which was quickly scratched by anyone wearing pants with metal buttons on the pockets. Eventually, I painted my chairs with red chalk paint, and now they look beautiful again and provide contrast to the table and bench. I expect to get at least 10 more years out of this set which is in our kitchen and used daily. Buy chair pads to protect the finish on the seats.
