I just received my braided chairpads. This is the second time I have orded this exact item. They are exactly what I needed in our country home. The color is perfect. We have lots of company and they have held up very well. I ordered more so I would have them on our table chairs, to match the ones that have been on our counter stools. Perfect. I ordered 4 about 8 months ago....just ordered 8. more ....who knows? I like them so much, I might order more! They work well for placemats, also!
