We love these chairs, they were super easy to assemble, and just as beautiful as pictured. The brown color is a purplish brown tone, which looked great with our dark espresso brown walls. The legs appear short, but the height is actually the same as a normal chair. My husband is 6'1" and seats comfortably. The size of the chairs are not are space-consuming as other chairs, so we actually fit five chairs around our round table. LOVE these chairs!
