This is a fun chair that is remarkably comfortable even without a cushion. We bought the orange chairs and they add a nice pop to our patio. Chair has a slight rock to it, not a rocker per say, but a bit of front and back movement in the design. They can be easily cleaned with a hose or bucket of sudsy water so no problem in leaving them out in any weather conditions. Only pause: chairs may be a little too low to the ground if you expect to put Grandma or Grandpa in them.

The perfect, light-weight, whimsical outdoor seat, defying the solid look...and it rocks back a little bit too! Fantastic piece.
Fun, modern, durable
