Chairs shipped promptly. Assembly was fairly simple. The chairs look nice but they are very light weight and thin. They feel cheap. I am using them around a kitchen table that we use daily. I hope they hold up. They look good, but they don't look or feel like well made chairs. As an interior designer I am always looking for high style and great value. From the review I read before I ordered these chairs, I expected more. I am not saying these aren't worth buying., but had I seen the chairs in a store I wouldn't have paid anymore than I did for them. These were not a great bargin....I got exactly what I paid for, No less, no more.
