Just bought 4 of these chairs to use with a small round game table. They arrived in top quality boxes with protective covers. No assembly required. Color is an off white (if you have a Sherwin Williams paint deck the color appears to match Muslin). Heavy and solid. Comfortable chairs when sitting upright or leaning forward (as you would at a game table). Due to the angle of the back they aren't designed to be "leaned back" into or slouched into. Seat size is generous and will accomadate larger guests. Nailheads are nice and expensive looking (could be a tiny bit straighter in a spot or two). Legs are dark brown/espresso but do have a touch of a red overtone. Overall FANTASTIC chair for the price!!! Thanks!!!
