After having wooden swivel chairs for years at our kitchen counter, I decided to go more sturdy and comfortable, and these chairs are both. The fabric is a nice neutral color and the legs are a beautiful cherry wood. The fully upholstered backs are nice since the wooden chairs we had were all scratched up from bumping into things. Assembly is pretty straight forward, just be careful to pull out the staples used to attach the bag of hardware, or they might poke you later. Also get a set of little round chair pads to stick onto the bottoms of the legs to keep your chairs from scratching your wood floor. I'm happy with these chairs, they complement our decor nicely!
