I bought these plaques hoping they would be a nice "filler" for a space between two doors in my kitchen. They do fit well; however, the colors are NOT nearly as bright as they look on the web site, and the pattern is spaced so far apart that against a light colored wall the whole thing loses its effect. I have them stacked vertically so maybe if they are placed in a grouping of four and closer together on a different-colored wall or background they might look better. Mine are on a cream- colored one. I may try these in another room in a different configuration, and probably will not return them- too much trouble. I recommend them with reservations.

I bought this to hang inside a kitchen closet so the size was the real clincher; however, the nice colors of the matt were an added plus. Although they are not quite as bright as shown on the web site they are still very pretty and against their grey/white frame look good. The matt holds a lot and had a few bonus pins that came with it. Do yourself a favor and buy a box of push pins with good handles in colors you will see against the matt so you can find them easily. This was easy to hang and took only about 5 minutes. I would recommend this product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this cabinet for our family room for extra storage. It's the right color; has enough storage for our needs; is actually more sturdy than it looks and will do the job nicely. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars only because it has a strange odor which I'm hoping is just from the packaging and will go away quickly. If not, I'll have to see if painting the inside will cover the smell which definitely is not pleasant.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this print along with its three "sisters" to fill a space between two closets in my kitchen and they look great! They remind me of the "old-time" posters or signs for fruit that I used to see along the roads during the summer advertising near farm stands. Brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. The frames are sturdy- no "real" frame around the pictures to get greasy or stuck with dust; the colors are soft; they are very easy to hang with the already positioned hooks on each back. I had mine up in less than fifteen minutes! I recommend these to anyone who wants nice pictures that remind them of times gone bye...
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for 6 chairs for our new round dining room table and saw these in red. I bought them and when they came we put them together with no difficulty. They look great! The only thing that concerns me is that they are a bit light so I'm wondering hoe long they will last with heavy use. But for the price, we couldn't be happier. I'd recommend these to anyone who wants a nice chair.
Yes, I recommend this product.

How much does this chair weigh?

Wish I could tell you exactly, but it is very easy to pick up. I'd say not more than 7 lbs. at the most. but I'm guessing.

Does this chair come in any other color - i.e. beige, burlap

I saw a chair like it in a different color in the store so I think you can get one. Look on line to see. I did see one in the store that was in a nice pattern. Hope this helps!

Weight limit 300# or 250#???

I see someone already asked the weight limit, however, I was confused. I was all ready to order these based on what the online description says b/c it lists the weight limit at 300 lbs. Kirkland responded to a question asking weight limit by stating that it is 250 lbs. Which is correct? I would hate to order these and then have my husband fall b/c it broke (or waste the money on them when they wont fit our family!)
I would not trust any weight over 250 lbs. The chairs are a bit light in weight themselves and I was concerned about how they would hold up with "heavy" use. Go with the 250 lb. limit.
