I have been waiting to get this chair for a while. I ordered the taupe color initially but the color is not as it appears on the web, so I had to return it. After reading the reviews about the assembly problems I was a little more than nervous to begin. I did have a little trouble in the beginning trying to screw in the bolts, but there are 2 sets of holes to line up the chair back with the seat (2 in the front and 2 in the back). If you start with the 2 holes at the **back/rear** you shouldn't have trouble at all screwing in the rest of the bolts. It took about 30 minutes altogether and couldn't believe how sturdy the chair is. I am VERY pleased with this purchase. Oh, and make sure you like the position of the chair feet before you nail in the wood screws. The instructions aren't all that clear on this part; I had to look at the picture on the website to get an idea of how they should be placed.
