These chairs were purchased for a gift for my parents. They were true to size and color, except what I thought was going to be a blue stripe turned out to be more of a steel gray. It still worked very well. The only problem we had with them is that after following assembly instructions to the letter, one of the chairs rocked horribly, with the right front leg being noticeably shorter than the rest. I contacted Customer Service, who promptly sent out a replacement leg. After changing it out, it helped somewhat, but still rocked. The difference is it doesn't rock once you sit in it, so it is not enough of a problem to return the chairs. They are definitely worth the price paid and look beautiful around a breakfast table.
