This is an awesome set we use in the breakfast / sun-room and very true to the picture. Pretty easy to put together and very sturdy. We really love it and get lots of compliments on it. Really great value!! It opens up to a square table and could fit 8, but we keep it rectangular most of the time w/ four chairs around it and it can sit 6 in a cozy fashion. Using the other two chairs to sit at our granite counter in the kitchen. Pulls everything together.
