The box arrived smashed but the chair was not damaged. It took just a few minutes to put together but like the other reviews say it's a little unsteady. Also there is a 2 inch space of scratches on the chair but I covered this with a pillow. Great price and it looks really good.
I wanted to get enough of these to seat 6 to 8 at my dining room table. I'll stop where I'm at and find a different kind of base. These have little black disks that fit at the bottom. They fall off VERY easily. Then if you lose one, the metal knob will scratch your floor. And if you try to find a replacement rubber thing to slide over the small metal pole/part that is scratching your floor, they wont fit. The pole part isnt long enough for those stopper type things from the hardware store (nor is it wide enough). Totally sucks because it is a well made chair otherwise.
