Do not hesitate to purchase these chairs. They are absolutely stunning, and I had looked at a lot of leather parson chairs in stores. These chairs are identical, if not better quality, for less than half the price. The picture does not show the back of the chair, but it has a beautiful seam going down the middle of the chair. The color is a dark chocolate brown. And you can't beat the shipping cost! You need not worry about not liking these chairs and having to return them. Also, these chairs are super comfortable. These chairs arrived (excellent packaging and no assembly required) in exactly 72 hours after I hit purchase on the website. I am very, very pleased!
