I had been looking for black leather parsons chairs for my dining room for quite a while when I ran across these on overstock.com. The low shipping charge is what sold me on them because I was looking at probably $100 or more for shipping of similar styles from other sites. They arrived quickly and undamaged, and my husband said they were easy to put together and they look beautiful! The only thing I would say is that at first the seat part was not all that comfortable, but with time, they are "breaking in" and I think they will be just fine! All in all, GREAT CHAIRS, GREAT BUY!!!
