I really love the elegant look of dark brown and cream--I think it's just such a sleek and modern look. Needless to say, these chairs are a new favorite of mine! I bought a pair to go with my small dining table, and they look just stunning in my apartment. The wood is lovely and sleek to the touch, and the chair pad is comfortable, too, which is always nice! I can't get over the fact that I managed to get these chairs for such a great price. None of my friends believe me when I tell them!
