Rated 1 out of 5áby CABROOKS Very Disappointed
The chair was my first purchase at L.L. Bean. If I would have read the reviews I would not have purchased it. The color does not look like the picture. I failed to look at the actual measurements of the chair. The chair will probably go in a bedroom, very small. Probably will not purchase from L.L. Bean again.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Mechkie Inferior quality to same item previously purchased
My first chair and the coordinating table were woven perfectly and the legs rested firmly on the floor. The wicker weave in the chair which arrived yesterday looks like a second (allowing for imperfections in wicker furniture) and the legs rest unevenly on the floor. Not what I expect from LL Bean. I love this style, the chair is very comfy for every member of my family but I wish someone had looked carefully at the chair prior to putting it into the box for shipment. Of course it was necessary to tear the box to remover the chair, which makes exchanging it more complicated.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 1Baymom Great Porch Chair
I ordered this chair (four total) to place on our porch. They are a good scale for our purposes and I appreciate the very nice black paint. While the natural cushion was fine, I have opted to have a striped custom cushion made. I'll save the natural cushion for another time. Would not hesitate to purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5áby dbrooks nice quality wicker
I got two Bean wicker chairs plus a matching side table last week. These chairs are tightly woven with real wicker (hard to find these days), and are good looking and sturdy. The only thing I would warn potential purchasers about the white color choice is that the color is not as represented in photographs. The white paint is more of a wash and quite a thin coat at that. The chairs look almost yellow, and don't really match the crisp white wood trim and other decorative accents in my house. I will be buying spray paint and repainting these. I would have given five stars to these items if not for the paint.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AWindjammerLady Perfect for me
Received my white chair today after only 5 calendar days. As others said, it is not bright white. Once the cushion is on, it appears cream color to me. I knew it wasn't true white ahead of time and after 3 months of searching elsewhere, decided to give this a try anyway. Very glad I did. I was replacing a big upholstered chair and wanted something small, light and airy and this fits the bill perfectly. Goes well with my blue Bean Cottage tables too. Can't beat the price for good quality chair. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jack35 Good Little Chair
I bought two of these chairs - one brown and one whitewash. Chairs are well made and comfortable. Slightly smaller in size than I had envisoned, but still just fine. One caution regarding the true color of "whitewash". The picture is deceiving; chair is not white, but more of an oatmeal (as noted by another poster).

Rated 5 out of 5áby Leosgal Love my wicker chair
My chair arrived via UPS today, just two days after the order was placed online. It meets my needs perfectly. What impressed me most, however, was the care the UPS delivery team took to protect my package from an ice event we are in the middle of. They found a tarp on a side deck and placed it over the box to protect it
until I got home. That is customer service extradinaire! Thank you!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Input4U Simple & small. Caution: Whitewash isn't white
This diminutive wicker occasional chair (made, I think, in Indonesia) appears to be well-made. The design simplicity is appealing, I ordered this chair in the new "whitewash" color, assuming by the name & web/catalogue photo representations that the chair would be white or, perhaps, a distressed white. (The room in which this chair is displayed appears to have light gray walls & white base trim.) I was very surprised & disappointed to discover that the chair is not, in fact, white. The chair is the color of oatmeal with the tones of natural rattan showing through in "distressed" fashion; the 3" cushion's a medium cream. Warm colors. A more accurate color name would be Distressed Ivory/Oatmeal. This color won't work with cool, crisp countryside/seaside decor/color tastes, especially blues & whites. The chair also will look out-of-proportion & dwarfed if room furniture has much heighth (e.g., my bed surface is 30" from floor.) My search for a white wicker chair now continues.
Plusses: The chair arrived quickly. LLBean was GREAT about assisting with this chair's pick-up in the return process.
