These chairs are a great deal -- similar ones at other stores/sites are much more expensive. However, the "white" is NOT actually white, it's off-white. Even the box says "cream." Other than that, the chairs are great. They are comfortable to sit in and have an appealing style.
I bought the bright green chairs and actually mixed and matched around my table with another chair style, same color though. I love the unique look these bring with mix and matched chairs. Definitely adds character to the room. Some assembly required. It isn't difficult, but they came in two pieces you'll have to screw together yourself. Chairs are sturdy and comfortable enough for dining chairs. I haven't needed to buy cushions for the seat. Had these chairs 5 months and no complaints. I have seen similar chairs with a wide variety in price. I believe i got a pretty good deal from overstock, but the designer equivalents are more than twice the price. I would not say these specific chairs are over $XXX/piece.
