I was afraid to even think of buying and packing these chairs and rope bed for the travel back to SC. They were the first things I unpacked after we got home...and got here fine! We packed them carefully and stowed them on top of the dirty laundry and suitcases.
The bed appears to be cherry and the ropes are tight and in great condition. I should have bought the trundle to go under it, but I might save up and send for one later. There was a beautiful corner china cabinet and a closed door hutch that screamed to go home with us, but my ears closed and resisted the road to total monetary ruin!
