YES I would definitely recommend this particular chair to a friend if they wanted a " true Yellow" chair. My chairs are actually awesome, just the wrong color! These chairs are heavy, well-made, and oh so comfortable! I can see how rivets on pants would scratch them, and I would suggest a chair pad for those instances. I'm not sure about a weight limit, but personally won't even attempt that. If these chairs were exactly as pictured, and the color that they told me they would be when I asked...things would be PERFECT!! But I am dealing with the color, because the quality is excellent!!
The chairs are super cute and modern and work well with our new library design. Very pleased. The only thing I would say is that the picture on the site doesn't really show the true color. They are truly sunshine yellow where as the picture makes them look darker like a dijon mustard color. However, that did not affect our design so we love them!
