We have been looking for a transitional-style chair to complete our dining room seating. The leather upholstery is both classy and durable, and they compliment the other all-wood chairs at the table, A good mix. We also like the fact that these chairs can travel easily to other locations in the house, i,e., great room and bedrooms. We ordered 2 of these chairs. They arrived very quickly in perfect condition. This was probably due to the extra care that was taken in the packing. Very sturdy, reinforced boxes that provided good protection for the chairs. Overall, we couldn't be more pleased. The chairs were quickly noticed and received several compliments at our Thanksgiving gathering.
