These chairs are great - I wanted to replace two folding wooden chairs that had broken, and wanted something with arms, and liked the look of these - they look fab on my balcony, and are very comfortable (even for my wide bottom!) and feel sturdy. Sadly the sun has failed to do its stuff since I bought them, so they have not had much use yet! I will store them away in the winter - of course they don't fold, but they do stack, so won't take up too much room in the shed. Lovely chairs, very happy with my purchase.
