These are nice chairs...not real leather I don't think but still looks great. White looks great and very modern but if you have a lot of kids you do have to clean them a lot because absolutely everything shows. One chair did have a big chunk of wood missing on the bottom leg. I've bought a lot of stuff from overstock and never had problems with returning. It was my fault for not returning...busy time and we just kind of forgot about it. You don't really see it, but I know it's there. Oh well! Still nice looking chairs. The white is a very striking look against the gorgeous color of the wood.
