We ordered these chairs to go with a similar teak table to replace a much heavier and significantly more expensive teak set. The chairs are much lighter but attractive. Unfortunately, sitting on the one chair for the first time, a large and critical part for its integrity, broke. Upon a 'chat' session with Overstock.com a representative will get back to me in a couple of days and will almost certainly replace the defective chair. My jury is still out on whether I'd recommend these chairs; they are an excellent value if and only if they're sturdy enought for everyday use. Our older, and much sturdier, teak chairs, served us well other than being a victim to old age.
