The first of 4 chairs I opened to put together had mismatched drilled holes for the wood biscuits. I had to return the bad parts to get a replacement, but overstock.com was fabulous about it, sent the return postage label, and the new chair was there before they got the bad one back. The remaining 3, plus the 4th went together just fine after I was able to figure out how to do it (not hard.) The little allen wrench worked fine but with a work glove is easier on your hands. Some screws went easily, some required some strength. The chairs are comfortable, solid and beautiful. I love the straight back but added a seat and a low back cushion for more comfort.
Pros: Good looking, solid wood chair, just as pictured online. We added an inexpensive seat pillow. Not difficult to assemble though inserting brass assembly screws required lots of torque. .Not a task for the puny (see "Cons"). Very sturdy once assembled. Welcome addition to our patio. Good price point. Cons: The supplied Allen wrench not exact fit for head of brass assembly screws. Result was one stripped (and unusable) screw. Customer Support VERY reliable in providing OE replacement. (The assembly screw is metric and could not be replaced locally--Los Angeles!) Chair is designed with nearly vertical back so sitting isn't real comfortable. (Our other patio chairs have slightly reclined backs.) However, someone with difficulty getting in and out of chairs (back problems or somewhat immobile) may appreciate the design. Glad we bought it, nonetheless
The chairs were easy to assemble. The quality of the materials is good, as is their construction. The chairs are handsome, sturdy, and comfortable. We have received many compliments on them. They look and feel like they will last long. I think they are a good value.
These are good sturdy chairs and well worth the price. They have held up well outside for two seasons.

While the appearance is very nice, I received the items with broken pieces that I choose to glue and re-screw instead of deal with the hassles of returning. One support piece had a large gash in it as well (shipping package looked fine) and one of the screw heads stripped during assembly.Buy with caution.
I bought a set of four of these for my back patio. They were easy to assemble. Each took about 20 minutes to put together. There were some pulled nails on some of the seats, but the way the chair is put together hides this very well. All in all, I'm very happy with them!
