These counter-height chairs are beautiful and a nice large size (wider than most counter chairs). The cushion, which is kind of a velvety off-white, is pretty comfortable. The company paid attention to details like a foot rail protector and foot pads that prevent scuffing. The items were all carefully packaged. However, it requires alot of assembly with many pieces. It took me about 1.5 hours to assemble the two chairs, and after I had, about a 2-3 cm gap remained between a couple of the foot rails and the chair legs, which impacted the chair's balance. Nonetheless, I don't profess to be a handy-woman, and am used to nothing more difficult than **** assembly. All in all, this is NOT for the '****' assembler, but if you have the time and patience to assemble these properly, they're gorgeous, expensive looking chairs.
