nice chairs, comfortable though they are only slightly padded. Great for a guest, occasional sitting, not lounging. Very nice styling, and sturdy. The seat is molded plastic like most similar chairs even the currently produced Eames shell chairs aren't fiberglass any more. The plastic flexes a little, which makes it more comfortable. The only thing is that you can see the underside seat support bracket a little from a certain angle. Not a big deal since it's neutral gray metal, but it would be nice if you couldn't see it at all.
