These chairs exceeded our expectations. They are very sturdy and can easily handle my 230lb husband plopping down on them. The seat is very firm, very minimal cushion, which is what I wanted. The seat material is tightly woven wicker, easy to clean and creates a nice contrast with the wood. The wood color is a medium-dark, brownish-gray. The brown of the wood comes through in some areas due to the antiqued effect of how the gray paint was applied. We bought four of these for the informal dining area, to go with a farm table. We may buy two more for additional seating in the future. Oh, and the chairs come fully assembled, which is an added bonus.
I always get nervous ordering products online without seeing them in person so I was definitely a little skeptical when I ordered these. However, they arrived in perfect condition and definitely exceeded expectations. They are a darker brown with the gray over top of it - which I absolutely love. They are a little rustic yet match our formal dining table really well. The quality is also very nice, and I can tell that they are going to last a long time. I searched for months to find the perfect chairs, and I finally found them. I highly recommend these chairs!
I purchased similar chairs from a well respected store and for whatever reason, they were not able to deliver 6 undamaged chairs that matched. I ordered 6 of these and when they arrived, all 6 were perfect. The packaging was great and it would have been difficult for them to receive any damage in transport. These are sturdy and the quality was so much better. The only thing I don't care for is the seat (brown burlap) so I purchased cushions to cover them. Very comfortable. Very happy with my purchase.
