My husband and I purchased a 9 foot table off of Craigs list for our large dinning room. We did not realize the cost of a dining set was in the chairs. Not only was the price, but matching the color put us in a disadvantage. I came across these chairs on Overstock after looking at hundreds of chairs. The price and color variation in the wood, looked right - so I ordered 8 of them. When they arrived, and put them together, it completed our dining room. The compliments and appeal these beautiful chairs brought to the table - couldn't have been more perfect. The faux leather is not an issue. these chairs feel and look like top of the line charis. Highly recommend this product. Easy to put together, stable, great compliment to a dark table bringing classic, sophisticated completion.
