I've had a beautiful all-marble dining room table for years but have grown bored with it. The once-comfortable Parsons chairs I had to go with it were showing wear and hid much of the table. On a whim, I ordered 8 of these chairs. What a HUGE difference! The chairs are very comfortable. The leather has a buttery feel but not at all flimsy. Their modern profile has made all the difference in how my table looks. Now I wouldn't trade my marble table for anything! The creamy white of the chairs looks perfect against the burgundy, cream, and black veined marble table. The chairs were very well packaged against potential damage. I'm very pleased with them!
