Bought these on Black Friday and got a great deal on them. Compare to high end local store, these chairs were significantly less costly and very similar quality. Arrived quickly and well packed in large heavy duty cardboard and that was also well padded. No assembly required and ready to unwrap and enjoy. Built very sturdy with good fasteners. Hope to get years of service out of them.
I was afraid to buy anything online -- I mean, what if they were junk?! After reading the reviews, I held my breath and took a chance, ordering six chairs... They arrived quickly, in just days, in huge boxes with lots of padding (I listed the boxes and stuffing for free on craigslist and got rid of them to a mover who was thrilled to get them). My sons helped me unload these chairs and go put them beside the table, but I could have done it myself.
I purposely waited several weeks to leave a review because I wanted us to use them several times before I gave an opinion. Yes, when we pulled them out of the boxes they were sturdy. I bought some scotchguard to use on the seat covers, which did not discolor the material at all. (They may have come already pretreated but since the covers were so light, I wanted to be sure they didn't stain right away.) The seats are firm, without being hard. We are big people and our backsides fit on the seat comfortably. We lean back in the seats and they are still very sturdy. And they match my very old table, that I loved and didn't want to replace, almost perfectly.
The one thing I've noticed on a negative side is that the places where the chairs lean against the table (you know, when you push the chairs back up to the table) are starting to indent, almost as if the chairs are made of pine (and maybe they are - I can't remember). Will this be very noticeable in years to come? That is definitely something I'll keep track of.
Be sure to notice that these chairs have a shorter back than other chairs, which is exactly what we wanted. They are perfect for our dining area. I really am surprised at how solid they are, and we are very pleased with our decision to get these. Don't be afraid to order from this manufacturer.
Thank you for shopping with us kag1012. This chair does not come with arms. I will leave you a link to our chairs with arms. Have a great day.
