I purchased two sets (4 altogether0 of these dining room chairs a few months back. The legs are wood and cushioning is padded, which is great! Over the holidays, my family raved about how comfortable and well-made they were. I've been creating a cream theme in my kitchen and dining room area, so these fit in with that concept.I have had no issues with them so far, and none of the stitching has unraveled either. They are a steal as far price is concerned and I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
