Although I like the size and design, these chairs are not very sturdy. The first time a friend of mine sat in one and leaned back slightly, it cracked (and he weighs around 175 lbs). There are other places where the paint has scuffed or is chipping off (revealing white underneath). One of the chairs was touching a wall, and black paint from the chair left scuff marks on the wall. I would not purchase again--not worth the price!
