I looked everywhere around where I live for chairs like this. everything I found was about 300 a chair. As soon as I saw these chairs on here I fell in love. They match my dining room very well and are very sturdy. The only things else I have to say is SCOTCH GUARD THEM!! I have a 2 year old and if you want them to keep loooking nice you should guard them! Other wise GREAT BUY!!
