The rack arrived unbelievably fast and in perfect condition. Assembly was a breeze. The size is exactly as described in the article write-up, and since I had used a tape measure to measure the area, I was not disappointed with it--it was exactly what I needed. The only down side is that the rattan should be painted black instead of brown--this would give it a classier look . I may one day repaint it, but at present it fits into my dining room perfectly and is just what I needed.
