These chairs are sturdy, well-built & beautiful. Assembly is not difficult, but does take some time. I ordered eight chairs and they arrived a week later. I am very happy with the look & style of the chair. The cleaning is easy with the leather seat. These chairs updated my dining area beautifully. Overall these are a great value and I would buy them again if I had to. The price is excellent, and you cant beat the shipping charge! thank you Overstock!!
