I rec'd the chair yesterday and hauled the box up the stairs to build the chair in my room. The chair itself is a nice size, and comfortable - I'll be looking for something to cover it for animal protection though. Building it should have actually been easier, but some of my pieces didn't line up all that great. I ended up scrapping the little placement dowels because they moved the holes too far apart to get the bolt into. I found that a socket wrench worked wonderfully, made that awkward angle much easier and could get it tighter than with just my arms working that wrench. The legs... Still don't know what the sticker meant, but with some playing around I managed to get the legs on right, just have to make sure the non-angled side is facing the external edge of the chair. I had to cut the black fabric backing in order to screw them in. Also, when I opened the box, there was a big sticker that said to find the legs and hardware under the seat. So I searched, and unvelcroed the backing and couldn't find anything. It had settled and got wedged in the furthest part of the longest piece - away from the opening. It was small - so just fyi: you'll find it IN the seat. Can't beat the price, and shipping too. I was considering a few options at a certain Swedish warehouse-like place and while they were very very comfortable, they were so much more expensive and would have looked really sloppy over time.
