I ordered 2 of the red color chairs. They were well packaged and arrived without damage although it took quite awhile. The red is a matte or satin finish - not glossy. It's a very nice deep red. The weaving is tight and looks good. There were a few minor blemishes on the finish only visible on very close inspection so it doesn't bother me at all. They sit evenly on the floor and have floor protectors on the feet. The seat is wide enough. Although these were a little pricey for extra chairs, they are a little piece of art and functional so I'm very happy I bought them.
The chairs arrived with 3 out of 4 having what looks like rust in a number of spots. The "rust" has been glazed over with the finish. I will be calling customer service to replace the chairs. If not for those imperfections, I love the chairs and finish and will update this review after receiving replacements. 11/19/17 I forgot to come back and review again after the replacement. It was very easy for the process of receiving the new chairs and returning the old. Alas, the "imperfections" appear to be a part of the chairs. BUT, I do like them so much that I saved all and ordered another set in red. They are all sturdy and look very well put together and most of all, they are comfortable for longer periods of time.
These red chairs are very nice but the color and finish was not what I expected. The color is a darker, richer red and the finish is more like a red stain with black antiquing than paint. They seem sturdy and work well in my kitchen nook but I have noticed the finish mars easily, exposing a bare wood underneath so they may not be suitable for daily use by children, blingy-pocket jeans, etc. I put chair pads on mine and they are holding up fine. Shipping was fast, assembly was easy, and overall I am happy with my purchase.
