...Then customer service told me it will then have to be shipped to their warehouse before it ships out to my client. They also said that it would be sitting for 4 weeks before it ships out to the hamptons. that means a total of 15- 16 weeks for the item that they originally said would be 6-9 weeks...

...AND CHARGE ME EXTRA to do it!! Oh , I forgot to mention that the rug and pad shipped separately so I will incur another $25 charge!!! Total in this debacle $113 wasted on a company that is not Customer Oriented at all!!! Never again, I am through with West Elm. Worst rude customer service!!!..

Reviewer's quote

...The website gave the exact same description and picture of the chairs, so we purchased two more chairs. When we received them we realized that the chairs are exactly the same, but the piping around the seat back is a totally different color! Same name..


...If you don’t have something available to ship out don’t even out it on your website. Didn’t even say it was backordered on the website..
