I had pretty high expectations for these chairs after reading the high praises in the reviews here. People were taken aback at the beauty of them -I swear some of the reviews seem planted! LOL so I was expecting something pretty spectacular. What I got is about what I paid for. The chair backs each have some areas that look like they either forgot to stain, or the stain got scraped off. The seat cushion is wide and substantial. I LIKE the cushion -a lot of people said it was ugly, but I think it looks smart against the pretty chair back design. The chairs feel pretty sturdy, you don't feel like they will buckle beneath you - a plus based on price paid. One thing that bothered me is that the seatback is really low. It barely grazes the top of my dining room table. The dimensions are right there on the page so my fault for not measuring better against my other chairs. I bought these originally to be dining table end chairs to contrast my other six chairs -but they look too puny to be at the head and foot of the table. When not in use, they are placed on either side of my sideboard (and look quite good there!). Bottom line, I am ok with these for extra seating and decoration. I would not want six or eight of these at my dining table as they really are not nice enough.
