Was skeptical about the color - thought they may be too orange - but took a chance and ordered four of them for my kitchen table. So glad I did! They're a much richer color in person. More of a honey brown than cheapy *** birch. The wood grain has character too, such as knots in the grain. The quality is great. Light enough to move around yet sturdy and comfortable. I've seen these exact same chairs many other places. This price is a steal! They shipped quickly in perfect condition for much less than if I'd carried them out of a local furniture store. Very happy with this purchase, and glad for the convenience of delivery.
