These chairs are exactly what I was looking for - and I spent alot of time searching. They are very sturdy, look expensive! They brighten up my kitchen and go perfectly with my glass-top table. Just one tip for assembling the chairs...buy more of the shorter screws as the longer ones poke through to the outside surfaces. I realized it before I poked a hole but it started to crack the outside finish. I was able to hide it easily with a little white paint, looks fine now. I then made a trip to the hardware store for shorter screws, no problems after that! Other than that, assembly wasn't bad at all. I highly recommend these chairs!!!
