I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this chair. Not only does it look amazing, but they are comfortable too. The assembly was easy and worth the effort. I looked at numerous local furniture stores and not one had anything similiar. I also found that those that were close in style/quality were easily $50.00 or more dollars EACH...overstock.com hit it outta the park with this FLEUR DE LIS chair...I have already had many compliments on them and have only had them a very short time. They look great in my dining room as additional seating and are right at home here in NEW ORLEANS !!
