The chairs are very sturdy. I only hesitated because the seats and back are fabric so I was worried that it would stain or rip easier however it is a lot better quality than I expected so I don't think I have to worry about it getting worn out too fast.
I ordered 4 chairs, and the chairs came with fish smell when I received them. It is NOT a pleasant smell when you use these chairs in a dinning room. I will try to leave them outside under the sun and see if the smell goes away... I have 4 other spare chairs (vinyl padded) and they have served me for 3 years, still very good (no strange smell). I'd rather have the vinyl padded chairs instead of these fabric ones (with fish smell, yuk!). I thought the fabric ones were better, but they are not.
Chairs were delivered timely and packaged well. There was one small snag on one chair cushion, but easily fixed by clipping thread. Do be careful, while the picture shows black chairs, one color option is antique linen. I didn't realize until they were delivered that I didn't order the black ones. They look nice, so I'm keeping them even though I have the black folding table. They do make a nice contrast.
We bought this for a birthday present at a later date, so have not used them, but the look great and are well constructed. Cosco is a great manufacturer and are very reputable. The price was right as they were on sale , but would have paid more. Hope they like them as much as we do, would like to have them ourselves, may just keep them. LOL
