My husband and I have waited to buy chairs for our dining table for more than a year b/c of the cost ($200 ea). We came across these and thought they'd look great, not to mention the price. By chance, we waited long enough for the O'Mail deal of the day and couldn'tresist (bought 2 sets). The chairs were delivered via UPS ground without any damage and within approximately 10 days. The chairs were easy to assemble - needed only the tools that were provided. Look awesome!!
