I read other reviews and appreciated reading that these were substantial chairs. They have a comfortable seat, fits a bigger person comfortably. The back has great support for ones back and the tabs on the bases of each leg make them slide and move easily without friction on my new kitchen floor. Easy to put together, using a drill for pilot holes to attach the seats is very helpful, very sturdy, expect years of use from them. They blend beautiful with my dark wood floor and treasured oak table in my new kitchen. Classy !
