Paola Navone's unique and unexpected furnishings are simple, elegant and immediately familiar, with a livable look that blends with any style. The traditional Windsor chair streamlines into a modern-day classic, reinvented with updated lines in glossy black. Slender spindles round the embracing curves of low back topped with a bentwood rail that doubles as an armrest. The slightest depression in the inviting round seat hints at the iconic saddle seat. A casual, inviting chair for dining or relaxing.

Riviera Black Low Windsor Side Chair is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ktrax from Modern and vintageI have an old home, built in 1840. These chairs are the perfect meld of old style and updated modern. They fit with older interiors as well as modern. They are VERY roomy. I have larger family members that love them. They are very sturdy. I like the idea of a cushion, although, I don't think they need it. My only complaint would be the silver tag in the back stands out and takes away from the cleanliness of the lines of the chair. I wished they had put the tag on the underside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aCBfan from I disagree with "cool looking torture device"I purchased these chairs before Thanksgiving. Except for one friend, whorequested a cushion, everybody loved them. Have had many dinner parties sincethen and nobody has complained. The large seats allow people to turn and movefreely. Also, I work from home and sit in one all day.Of course, a cushion option would be great, perhaps Crate & Barrel can designthem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pmaynez from Cool Looking Torture DeviceI purchased four of these right when they came out. I based my decision on looks alone. This has to be one of the worst chairs ever designed.I honestly believe the designer simply made a sketch and never sat in her creation. The Chair is a torture device that nobody ever tested. The giant size of the seat is too deep, I need to lean up to be at the table which leaves the back of the seat untouched. When I lean back, I'm left too far from the table with a unforgiving seat back digging into my mid-back. This chair actually caused my back to hurt for a couple of days. I dreaded the idea of sitting in it. I replaced it with my comfy patio chairs until I returned them. I kept only one chair for my studio, which is where I drape my outfit for the day, get dressed and put on my Adidas. I sit on the chair for about 60 seconds a day, and never lean all the way back.These chairs were replaced with 4 Willa Raven Side Chairs that are about 90 times better than this Riviera Monster.
