Carrington Court or Arhaus?

I'm looking at parsons type chairs online and have narrowed it down to two. I'm keeping my existing table.
Carrington Court ($309) Not the color shown, but rather Chinese red or Sherwin Brown.carrington court camel back

or Arhaus ($199) color as shown
arhaus capri side chair
It's hard buying chairs online without being able to sit in them. Can anyone comment on the quality or the sit or feel of these chairs? Hubby is 6'3" so need something sturdy.
I've read really good comments on this site about Carrington Cour and some concerns about Arhaus customer service - not sure if it's worth the extra $110 per chair tho.

We recently ordered a CC chair. We sent them fabric. This is a chair we will use occasionally with a desk. They did a nice job, it's comfortable enough for our purposes and as a spare chair.

I'm not sure you're comparing apples to apples for your extra $100. Carrington indicates their chair is leather; Arhaus is Eco-leather fabric which, a google search informed me, is made up of 20% leather.

I can't speak to Arhaus quality or value, but I own 2 Carrington Parsons chairs and they are one of the best furniture values I've ever made. Very comfortable, if a bit narrow.

I would happily do an infomercial on my CC counter height barstools! They are incredibly comfortable. We too sent our own fabric. We also specified custom leg color. These are the perfect height for a 36" high island.

Sorry to highjack this, but:

Oldbat, what are the paint colors (both the gold and blue gray)?

RE: Carrington Court or Arhaus?

I just sold 4 CC chairs on local FB trading page - over 30 people were interested. They are extremely well made and comfortable.

Appreciate the info and confirmed my thoughts that Carrington Court is a quality product. Now to decide on color.
Joaniepoanie I love that fabric - classic but fun! it would work great with my colors.
Old bat - I like your style! Wish I had your white trim.

hilltop...I got the fabric at a large, local discount fabric warehouse so have no information on it. ...i love polka dots.

Bat2....thanks to nosoccer I just realized we have the same colors....my kitchen is gold and my LR and DR are gray.

Nosoccer....if you're interested...my kitchen is BM Bridgewater Tan @75%....similar to Sandy Brown. My LR is London Fog, DR is on same chip but a bit darker-- Plymouth Rock.

nosoccermom - the yellow is long gone and I'm not sure what it was (could go check the paint can graveyard in the basement if you would like!), but we have the blue throughout the downstairs. It's BM Aura Vancouver Day.
