Very stylish, but cardboard cheap feeling!
 from San Francisco, CA,  Jan 27, 2013

Shown on my computer screen is a pea green, almost lime green color for these chairs. In reality, the color is a much darker green. I like the darker color OK, I just want to point this out for other shoppers. The chairs come PRE-ASSEMBLED, which is wonderful. I thought, being that they were pre-assembled, they would be of very high quality. When I got them out of the box, they were stylish and beautiful. Even my sweetheart (who hates me spending money on furniture) loved them right away. He said "These are great, maybe we should get 2 more!" I must say that with their retro style, they go wonderfully with our 1950's walnut table. (To clarify, the legs of the chairs a much darker espresso color, so the color doesn't "match" walnut, but the styles match, and I like a mix and match look, so I love it.) The problem with these chairs is the quality is NOT what you would expect. I was very disappointed to find that the back is made of a very thin piece of wood covered in fabric. It feels very cheap, like cardboard, on your back. There is no padding at all. I'm not sure if this is being retro design, or if it's just plain cheapness. At the time when I purchased this, there were no reviews at all, so I had no way of knowing about this. I thought about returning the chairs, but ... they are so adorable and look so good with the rest of our decor. So I decided to keep these 2 chairs, but get something more comfortable for the other 2 chairs at our dining table. I ordered the Matilda Red Vinyl Chairs, and couldn't be happier. The red chairs and green chairs make wonderful pops of color next to our 1950's walnut table.
