I orders 4 of the chairs for my kitchen. I figured they would be easy to wipe off because I have small children. They look VERY nice and are sturdy. They were easy to put together. I am not sure what the other reviewers were talking about it being hard to put together. When putting the seat on, you just need to put all the screws (5) in and line them up all with the back of the chair. Then tighten them all at one time. What a snap! I am very pleased with these chairs.
