I just finished putting the chair together. Just 4 long bolts to attach the back of the chair to it's frame. It took a little time, but less than a half hour, because the bolts are a little hard to screw in, but overall not bad at all. The chair looks great! Looks much more expensive than it was. It has a nicely stiched seam down the center of the back, which adds to the overall appearance. The seat is large enough for a big person and is comfortable. It sits about 16" from the floor. I would definately recommend this chair. You won't be disappointed.
