As we read in other reviews, the screw holes don't line up. You will need to drill new holes to make this work, but they are great, sturdy, comfortable and good looking chairs if you can get past the irritation of putting them together. Beware buyers in Canada, you get hit with another $XX in customs charges.
The overall quality of the chairs is very good, however assembly was challenging because new holes had to be made to place final screws since factory holes did not match the parts. Once this was done. They looked good. There were also some rough places on metal but they don't create a problem with catching clothing. The chairs were a good value for the money. The chairs were a perfect match to my table.
