We ordered three sets of two chairs; they arrived within three days. The chairs were packed well, and you're left with quite a pile of cardboard and Styrofoam to burn (not that I would burn it). The assembly instructions were very basic, but didn't need to be elaborate, since your average 5th-grader could assemble these chairs. My only gripe is that the hex socket wrench that's provided (the 90 degree type) is slow to use since the capscrews are positioned close to the legs, thus preventing "twirling" of the hex wrench. Fortunately for me, I have a straight hex wrench, to which I attached a 1/4" drive socket (4mm size) and a ratchet, which really sped up the assembly process. The only flaw in workmanship was the attachment of the round cross-braces between the front and rear legs. Some of the provided wood screws did not engage properly into the leg. I simply used a larger wood screw. As mentioned earlier, we bought six chairs. When all were assembled. two of them rocked a little due to uneven leg height. I was able to loosen the leg mounting screws and reposition the legs, with some improvement, then realized that just plopping your derriere onto the seat eliminated the rocking. Overall, the chairs look great and are very comfortable for a hard-seat chair. It was great that the website provides the seat height, since our table sits a little high. The six chairs around our round glass-topped table look fantastic, and all our friends who have seen them heartily agree.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very accurately
These chairs were so well packaged when they arrived and were in perfect condition. I just put them together yesterday and they were so easy to assemble. I am in my late 60s and had no trouble at all assembling the chairs or the matching table. They look beautiful in my dining area and I am very pleased with this purchase. I wanted solid wood and this set was exactly as described. The wood on the table top and the chair seats is gorgeous. The chairs are also very sturdy and comfortable to sit on.
I bought these chairs to match a table and bench I already had. The color was a perfect match. They were easy to assemble and are very sturdy. I bought two to try them out and I am now going to order the other two. When people come over they don't know they're not the chairs that came with the set. The price was fair and the chairs arrived very quickly, about a week.
