I use mine as dining chairs at a Strut table; however, I think they would work well just about anywhere. I love their angular good looks. Bending the chairs into shape makes assembly fun and makes the chairs more endearing.

To address some feedback left by others:
- The hardware for my chairs came with blue threadlocker already applied to the threads. I don't feel that loosening will be an issue.
- While I find the RGC comfortable on its own, I did order the RGC Pad as well - it ups the comfort factor just enough for longer sitting sessions while maintaining the RGC's sleek looks.
- The chair is much heavier and sturdier than online pictures would suggest. Unsure, I had to sit in one prior to ordering them and was pleasantly surprised - these chairs feel solid underneath my 270 lbs.

My assembly tips, should they help anyone:
- After bending Angle C into place, double-check Angles A and B to make sure that they weren't affected by subsequent bending.
- If your seat plate seems slightly more to one side than the other, double-check the angles of the back piece - one of them is likely off.

I love the form of these chairs, they are comfortable, sleek, affordable, and come flat packed. I have owned a set of 4 red good chairs for about two years now for a dining set, they look great but I agree with what a previous reviewer said. You HAVE to tighten the hardware all the time, otherwise they get wobbly and fall apart. I have had two of my chairs break on me already, luckily I was able to replace the hardware with screws. Be weary these chairs are not meant to hold a lot of weight ie over around 200lbs? It's quite annoying to have people come over that I am entertaining and I have to warn them to be careful with these chairs.

      Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

      We just bought 4 of the copper version with the cushion. I don't understand why people complain about the assembly, its so easy. They are striking and surprisingly comfortable. They are currently with a French provincial style table and the contrast is great although we are going to get the branch table from blue dot. Our only problem if you can call it that is allowing the copper to change to the intended patina - they are so lovely shiny!

        Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

        I have 10 red ones around a huge Danish teak dining table and they look phenomenal! Funny thing is that After I bought my first 4, I thought to myself, "too bad they don't come in copper." Well, that happened about a year before they came in, well, copper.

        As far as assembly goes, I can follow directions.

        As far as flimsiness goes, I tighten all the fixin's once a year.

        Most of my guests have commented on how comfortable they are but we are looking to buy a couple of pads for those who would prefer a softer touche-touche experience.

        Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

        I've had this chair for three years now and it is at the end of its life. The chair looks great, but that is the only thing good about it. Incredibly flimsy and very uncomfortable if you sit in it longer than 20 minutes. But the worst part is that the perforated fold snapped and the back has zero support. For $150 you can get a much better chair. I also own a Hot Mesh chair and it is so much better in every way except looks. Do not but the Real Good Chair.

        Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

        Drove by one of these sitting on the curb waiting for trash pickup and knew it was not destined for the junkyard.

        All of the bolts had come loose and one of the legs was bent (which really meant two of the legs were bent). After tightening up the bolts and bending the heavy gauge steel legs back into place, it's as good as new!

        I was surprised by how heavy the chair was - good heavy steel was used in the construction.

        Comfort - it's as comfortable as our Eames fiberglass chairs - good for sitting in for a little while, but I wouldn't make it an everyday work chair. Perfect for a good look as a side chair.

        I was also happy to see them on HGTV Design Star being used in Brooks' bus design. The copper chair was a great accent!

        the chair is still boxed up an unused as the assembly has turned out to be most difficult if not impossible to accomplish, i have assembled all of our furniture and am fearless when it comes to building these sort of things, but this chair has been a nightmare to put together and i still haven;t accomplished it, am waiting for a relative to come to give it a try, hate to say i won't be ordering anymore.

        Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

        I love the design and look of the chair. It does feel a little flimsy, especially if you acidentally bend the seat the wrong way during assembly as I did. I am not using the chair daily so I cannot tell how it would stand up to that kind of use, I just like looking at it ; ). By the way: I filled out the comment card that came with the chair and they sent me a cool pair of socks! Thanks blue dot!

              Comments about Blu Dot Real Good Chair:

              This chair is in my living room alongside a mix of furniture from different eras, and it feels natural. Things I like about he chair are the shape, sturdiness, and finish. My only complaint is that one of the feet is slightly off the ground. It gets pushed down when I sit on the chair, but would prefer not to have that wobbliness when nobody is sitting there. If anybody has a good trick for fixing this problem, would love to see it in this comment area.
