These are durable, good-looking chairs that were a great buy as part of upgrading our dining room. The bonded leather is tough, feel good and wipes down very easily with a damp cloth. Having three rambunctious kids has done a number on the cloth upholstered chairs we had before, and so far, these chairs have withstood a lot of punishment. But they clean up very well and are always ready for a formal dinner. The packages arrive earlier than we expected and the chairs were in perfect condition.
