Gothic or neoclassical? Let's just say it works. The Roanoak X-Back Dining Side Chairs - Set of 2 is majestically crafted of ruggedly durable solid rubberwood with select hardwoods, and the emphasis is on the details. The X-back style qualifies these chairs as contemporary, but the black distressed finish has a rub-through look that's created by hand and makes these chairs seem like they might once have lived in a Czech cathedral. Anything seems possible, giving you unlimited freedom as you style your dining space. Stately turned legs narrow to petite feet. A protective lacquer topcoat stands tough against scratches and stains.
