I ordered this thinking I was getting a set of four (my mistake), so I paid more for this item than I intended to. Even though that was my mistake, I feel this was a little more pricey than I would ordinarily pay for this kind of item.That being said, the cushion is quite comfy. The foam is dense enough to provide support, but soft enough to be nice to sit on. The workmanship is excellent; I expect the item to last a long time.The top resembles a thin sueded leather, and in beige it's neutral without being drab. The bottom is black, but instead of the little rubberized dots in most non-slip chair cushions, the material itself is some kind of non-slip (but not sticky) vinyl that completely stays in place even when I sit cross-legged on the chair. This is a nice feature, as the rubberized dots on cheaper cushions can leave a residue on wooden chairs.Overall this is a very nice item, and I suspect the price is good for the value. Finances are tight, but despite my initial sticker shock, I have the feeling that I'll break down and buy more for my other kitchen chairs.
