Help Finding Similar Sturdy Chairs ?

Q: I am in love with the OLLE chair by IKEA. It's exactly what I've been looking at for our smallish dining room/office combo and fits perfectly with my turn of the century hand-made heirloom table. But we are not small people. I'm 6' and my husband is 6'2". We also have a very active 4-year old who likes to beat things up. IKEA has a reputation for making things that fall apart under heavy use so I'm worried that these chairs might not stand up to us.

My question is this: If you have/had these chairs, do you feel they'll stand up to the test of our family? If not, do you have any equally affordable suggestions?
