I purchased this because I needed a chair for a dance routine I was performing. They only sold in a set of four which sucked because I needed only one... however, these red chairs are so cute and stylish I decided to use the remaining three (and even four sometimes) as extra seating in my house when I have visitors! And a plus is that they stack away and store nicely... so they dont take up needed space in my home! Compared to the usual black, brown or even biedge (ugly, traditional) folding chairs these WIN because the red gives them a more modern and contemporary appearance. Finally, they are also very sturdy! Like I mentioned I dance on the chair and it is sturdy enough to take my abuse! :O) I RECOMMEND this item!!!
