I ordered these chairs to replace my worn out fabric kitchen chairs. the leather is soft and the stitching is well done. the chairs are smaller in dimension than i expected but that wasn't a problem. i ended up buying another set of two chairs. they come fully assembled, well packed, and with protective covers, which are great to keep on the chairs until you want to use them. There was some residual glue on the legs but it removed easily. I just received the 3rd set i ordered and have not had the chance to see if they are as well made as the first two sets. they look beautiful around the circular glass top kitchen table.
