I did a lot of shopping for chairs before selecting these. So glad I found them, and at a reasonable price too. The color is like the photo, the sturdiness is great, and the assembly was fairly easy. The cushioned seat is very nice and has a lot of "cush" in it. The fabric is better than I imagined, with a soft feel to the touch. Really like the distressed color with my medium/golden color oak table. Very classy. Chairs were shipped quick and received within 1 week.
