The shaped seat frames are decorated with a floral carved motif and the knees also display delicate floral carved detail. The legs are united by four sturdy stretchers (for added strength and stability), with the front stretcher decorated with fine floral carvings. The six oak kitchen chairs are heavy in weight, which is a good sign of fine quality and it means they are also sturdy.
