CalligarisCalligaris is contemporary Italian home design. Founded by Antonio Calligaris in 1923, this family-run company fuses its roots in wood craftsmanship - the trade that launched their first chairs decades ago. From that artisan birthplace of tradition, style and quality, Calligaris has traveled a long road leading to the use of the most innovative technologies available and expanding to new mediums - from plastics and glass to metal, textiles and leather. Today, the Calligaris range of distinctive collections includes chairs and stools, dining and occasional tables and bedroom-lighting furnishings. Calligaris works with care, passion and creativity to bring into being the best of Italian design, making high quality products at an accessible price. Calligaris products are designed for everyday use with an eye to satisfying the living needs of today's homes. The company produces intelligent, functional products that are highly affordable, user-friendly and can adapt to differing styles. Designs stem from the analysis of form and function, from experimentation in construction and materials, and by continuous innovation. An ongoing collaboration with leading designers, new talents and an in-house R&D team allows the company to develop solutions answering the distinctive and changing needs of modern home and work spaces. Calligaris holds quality of material and design among the most important of its company values. Their product quality is the result of a careful selection of materials and direct supervision of processes carried out by suppliers. In 2006, Calligaris obtained the prestigious Forest certification from the Forest Stewardship Council. And in 1997 they became one of the first Italian furnishing companies to obtain ISO 9001 quality certification for its entire organization and production system. That's Calligaris. Beautiful yet practical, original yet affordable and backed by a thorough commitment to quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good product, not perfect I like Calligaris products and purchased their bed and side tables in the past. I was expecting this product to be equally good. The chair is very nice, I use it for my vanity. My only complaint is that it doesn't have any soft padding at the bottom and makes a loud sound when I shift it. It hasn't scratched my floors but most furniture I buy has padding, so I was expecting one for this too. That was disappointing. Other than that this is a good chair. I prefer Louis Ghost chair but the non-armchair one was too narrow while the armchair one would not go inside the vanity, so this chair was a good compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Love This Chair! I spent a tremendous amount of time looking for an ideal transparent chair that I wanted to use with my vanity stand. All others were too bulky and too expensive for what I needed. Since I already own Calligaris furniture in the dining room, I took a look at what they had. The Parisienne Chair is perfect. It is streamlined and very comfortable. I really like the Calligaris line, their furntiture is well made, modern and as I mentioned comfortable. I am very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Newyorking from Average chair After searching far and wide, I purchased this chair in transparent for my mirrored vanity. It lacks the "wow" factor. I went to Bloomingdale's and saw the Louis Ghost chair that I liked much better, but the one with arms would not fit inside the vanity, and one without arms is too narrow. I have bought other Calligaris products in the past but was surprised that this one was just average. I think it looks better in pictures! The worst thing about this chair is that it drags on the floor. Most of the products I buy have a kind of padding at the bottom so that they don't scratch or drag on the floor. This one hasn't scratched my floor yet, but it does make a loud dragging sound. I hate that, especially for a product I will be using every single day. For the price and brand, it fell a tad short. I like Kartell better.

Parisienne Chair is rated out of 5 by 6.
what are the dimensions of the seat itself how wide and how deep? We have a small spiral glass kitchenette table and these chairs would match but hubby wants to know how small the seat is. We would put a cushion on the chair.
The dimensions of the seat itself are 18.4" Wide x 21.1" Deep with a seat height of 18 inches off the ground. If you have additional questions, please call one of our knowledgeable product specialists! Brian, YLiving Customer Support 866-842-6209

Where are these chairs made?
Hey there Gigi P! These are made out of Polycarbonate which is a very light weight, yet heavy duty and damage resistant form of plastic. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this. Feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 to speak to a Product Specialist directly, and we are more than happy to go over some options with you! Stephanie, YLighting Customer Service
