We bought these chairs about 7 months ago. They have been used in our Kitchen for every day use. After a few months of use we noticed that they were becoming kind of loose rocking as you sit on them. We have had to repeatedly tighten the screws on their bottom. The screws attach to a piece that is imbedded in the wooden parts of the chair. Now this part does not attache to the wood anymore. These chairs are not constructed to last very long. They do look nice online and are not too hard to assemble but they will fall apart on you if you use them for a few months.
