If this chair wasn't so pretty, it would have been thrown through the wall when I good not get the arms two wooden pegs to fit into their holes on each side of the seat cushion. What a pain in the rear! My arms then were so tired from using the allen wrench to turn the screws, I went and got my trust drill with an allen bit and got them all in except the one for the last arm I was able to force in. Never could get that screw in. The chair is beautiful and would have been instantly returned if I had not finally been able to get all the pieces together (directions stink!).
