I bought 4 of these to accompany a heavy wood table (2 on each side), and I am very pleased. The metal / wood contrast is a nice juxtaposition, and the chairs are solid without being dull. Due to the arms they only push under the table about halfway, which is just perfect for dining. There are rubber "feet" and I have no worries about them scratching my wooden floor. I placed colorful chair pads on 2 seats, and sheepskin throws on 2, and I couldn't be happier. They were, however, perfectly comfortable with no pads, just a little cold on bare legs. Great price for 4 chairs, and I'd highly recommend them (and they come fully assembled - woohoo!).
