chairs are beautiful. they look well made and strong. I ordered 2 sets.unfortunately one of the chairs came defective. One leg is shorter than the rest. I called Macy's and I was told I have to return both chairs. A hassle because I worked an hour putting both chairs together. Now I have to place another order and wait 3 weeks for the new chairs. I am just glad they are not making me pay for the return of the chairs. I hope the new chairs don't have any issues.
