Good buy - charming look! Very cute, island feel that goes perfectly with my bamboo table that I bought a few years ago. I varnished the bamboo with a marine laquer to withstand the weather. One thing is the canvas cover is not your standard director chair cover - it has cut outs that fit over a metal bar, rather than the sliding rod that goes into the groove. When it the time comes to replace them, I will probably have to have them custom made.
Adorable addition to my Costa Rican casa. These were an adorable addition to my Costa Rican terrace. They were lightweight enough to come in my suitcase but yet still amazingly comfortable. I am not sure how I will replace the white canvas (not your normal director chair seats and backs), but will figure it out when necessary, as I would like to change the seats to leather. In a perfect world, they would have had some type of weather-proof finish. But that can be added at a later date. Overall, for the price, I am thrilled with these cuties. [...]
Cute, functional, easy assembly. College student, in a dorm room, and I love it! It truly is my "coffee table"--both my coffee maker and slow cooker are sitting on it now. It's a little big to store easily, but I don't plan to really do that. It didn't come with assembly instructions, but I was able to figure it out pretty quickly. It's a cute table, too!
