Substandard - tough assembly, not too durable
 from Metro Detroit,  Oct 28, 2012

Assembly was interesting: I had to violate the directions and swap the front legs so the front crossbrace was higher (not lower as in picture and instructions), in order to get other braces to line up properly. Also, getting the legs to line up involved a complex method of loose assembly, then finally crawl underneath and reinstall screws with loctite while my daughter was sitting on the chair. Had to be done fast lest the wood glue on the leg braces dry. One or two of the leg braces split because the screws used and the holes for them were not really what you'd want for woodworking. More wood glue and clamps later, it cleaned up fine but with a lot of extra work. If you didn't care about these things it'd be about a half hour each; if you want them to go together well plan on at least an hour each. Once assembled they are durable enough... Construction wise. About 9 months later, the faux leather upholstery started splitting apart on all of them, and once you've got a small rip it will become huge in a matter of days without immediate attention. We've got 3 kids between 2 and 6, but they're not that wild. If you're thinking you like these because you want to "buy cheap because I've got kids", then you really ought to reconsider. 9 months is an awfully short time to enjoy these once you've put the blood sweat and tears into assembly.
