We were in need of some sturdy kitchen chairs. The current ones had begun to show their age. I ordered these chairs based on the positive feedback they have received. I was happy to find that they are everything the feedback said. They are solid. They were easy to assemble. For the price, I do not think they can be beat. Similar chairs sell for twice as much. On a secondary note, I'll say that the seat of one chair arrived split. Overstock quickly remedied the situation. And I had a new chair delivered within 5 days of notifying them.. Double plus good.
