I am so happy with these chairs, since they are finally the answer to my long quest for the 'right' chairs that would not only go with my espresso colored dining table but also fit in with the other furniture in the dining room -- most of which is a sort of dark cherry shade of wood. The legs of the chairs match the other pieces perfectly, while the espresso leather-like seat area goes beautifully with my table. And I emphasize leather-like: it seems like high quality leather, and the stitching and buttoning details are lovely and make the chairs appear even more high end. I found many real leather parsons type chairs on my 'search' that were not nearly as nice or luxurious looking. OR as comfortable. These are very comfortable, and were incredibly easy to put together. I bought one set as a 'trial' initially, and when it arrived, I knew I had the winners! I immediately ordered a second set, so now I have my four beautiful elegant chairs around my formerly lonely dining table! As another happy surprise: I had earlier bought from Overstock a leather seating bench for the table as well, and it turns out these chairs look like they are the matches to that bench, although their 'style' names are different!! Perhaps the best thing of all: the incredible price. I never thought I could get such great chairs for such a bargain. If you're thinking about these chairs, GET THEM!!! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Overstock, for always making me happy!
