These chairs are well designed and surprisingly well constructed, particularly in light of the price. I have a fairly small house, so keeping more than 6 dining room chairs around the house for my dining table and its two leaves when I have dinner guests over was not a great option. These chairs are very sturdy, easy to set up and equally easy to fold up for storage. They are also are very comfortable. The same company makes similar chairs in a number of stain and style options, so if these don't match your dining room chairs well, search on Amazon under the manufacturer's name, Stakmore. I learned this the hard way after buying 4 natural finish chairs which I liked very much only to discover a month or so later on one of the Amazon' famous "customers who bought this also bought..." these chairs that match my main set much better! One of my friends is now enjoying my original set!

Its a nice looking chair but vinyl? Hmm, less dirt, less stain, less comfort, easy to tear?
But Stakmore has been providing wood folding chair in various stains and fabric options for a very long time.
Once made in the USA, now these chairs are coming in from Vietnam. Although they are still sell for $70 per chair, you can find them at Walmart and Costco (from time to time and at limited locations) for less than half the price. $30 each.
So why continue to buy from Amazon resellers? I really can't say. If you ever find it at Costco, you can return it anytime (up to a year, maybe more). Not so with the resellers here. If you really need more color option than you probably have to pay for that since Walmart & Costco will carry only one color and fabric. Comfort wise, it's not better than the steel folding chair with the thin cushions. The metal folding chair with thicker cushion actually does feels alot better. But once I worn down the chair in a few years, I will probably reupholster the seat with more padding and better quality fabric. I agree with other comments posted that it is difficult to unfold, especially when its new. Hopefully it will get easier over time. I plan to keep mine for as long as it works. I do like that it looks just like a regular wood dining chair, better than those metal folding chairs which are tacky in a dining room when you need extra seats around the table. They do feel sturdy. No chance of the chair collapsing like the metal chairs when kids tend to tilt back on them. These chairs are not as easily to tilt back as the metal folding chairs. The plastic foot on each of the legs are quite small, you might opt to replacing them with one a bit larger or replacing with a felt pad especially on wood floors. Yes, there is a warning that this chair contains material, chemical known to cause cancer, but anything painted or stain, and any cushion will have the same warning. So don't be alarm by this. That's there to prevent the frivolous lawsuits. As these are made in Vietnam and maybe from China, I am quite sure they are sold to others to rebrand, but Stakmore may have a better mechanism, so beware. If you lucky to find the same quality, please let us know. I know Home Depot, Cosco brand, and others may have similar chairs but I have yet to compare them to Stakmore. But for me, if you can find a Stakmore for $30, it's worth it. I can always spend another $10 to reupholster and add more padding to the seats.

I received this item quickly and in the condition I expected. Very handy item to have for extra guests. Definitely beats the old metal folding chairs.

The chairs are beautiful & classy for a folding chair. I bought 6, and a couple of them were very stiff and harder to open, which is why I gave it a 4 rather than a 5. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase.

We cannot agree with the negative comments since we've bought Stakmore chairs before and were confident that these would be much better than just OK. We needed two extra chairs for those times when we have to seat 8 at our table. We didn't want to buy more of our original ones because our dining area is not that big and there are normally just the two of us in any event. These are perfect! The style, color and cushion material are a close enough match for those rare occasions and they fold up for storage so we can stow them in a closet. BBB had similar chairs for about $10 less but THEY were not that solid and, frankly, were a bit wobbly. These arrived on time, were well packaged and, so far, we've not noticed any dings or imperfections.

Amazingly comfortable, sturdy, & beautiful folding chairs. They take up more space than a typical metal folding chair (~7 inches deep), but they actually look like (& can serve as) real furniture.

Great chairs! There's a hidden benefit here. The company (ivgStores) you're dealing with is top-notch as well. I had a problem with one of the chairs breaking within moments of removing it from the carton. Contacted them immediately and from the date of my original order (11/10/14) to the date of delivery of my replacement chair (11/20/14) was only 10 CALENDAR days! Great customer service.
...and like I said, the chairs are pretty dang great too! Very sturdy. Seem to be well built. Can't see myself buying any of the cheap ones ever again. Well worth the extra few bucks.

No more metal folding tables when we're hosting christmas dinner! These are sturdy, look great, store well. The matching table looks great in it's smallest size as an accent table in the living room, ready to pull out to be an extra dining table when we have a large gathering. We even use it outside in the summer when we have more guests than our patio table can accommodate. It's very easy to expand and collapse again to store.

Wow do I love these chairs. They are sturdy, well made and finish and style all I hoped they would be. Takes a couple tries the first time to figure out how to unfold, but follow instructions on bottom of seat and you will get the feel of it. We bought 4 mission style in fruitwood with black cushioned seat and they are a good sized chair--not skimpy to sit on. My husband is very tall and around 250 lbs. He says the chair/seat is comfortable for him. Only sorry I spent so long dragging chairs from all over the house when we needed extra seating. Could have chosen a less expensive chair but happy we went a little bit higher for these. Even so, I think these were a great price for how nice they are. Fast delivery, extremely well packaged.
