And very sturdy. I am using them at each end of my dining room table. The sides are flanked by six black, wooden chairs with clean lines. The perfect compromise for "him and her." Very nice chairs and comfortable. A little difficult to line up the holes with the screws because you are trying to find the hole "blind." But, the assembly was not too difficult. These chairs would be great in any room of the house. They really ass a touch of drama.
