I love the look of these chairs. First off it must have been the quickest & easiest assembly. I was so happy about that. It took a total of 10 minutes (maybe) to put together both chairs, and thats including taking off the packaging and opening the little package for tools, etc. The blue is nice and bright with great saturation. The piping is a delight, a nice bright off white. The seating is definitely more firm than medium, so not sure if that will become more comfortable with more use, but they add such great color to our dining room that i'm totally ok with that. Definitely recommend. Good value for the look + ease of assembly.
