Although there was no damage to the contents & there were no missing pieces, the poor packaging of the contents caused the shipping carton to crush. I recommend better packing material. Instructions were somewhat confusting. Once sorted out, however, the assembly was not difficult. Some of the parts were another matter. Pegs of the left & right cresspleces don't fit completely into the legs & the screws to secure them do not screw in completely. If style matters more than comfort, then you may want to consider these stools. The attractive style & price are what prompted me to purchase them; but, I regret having done so because they are not comfortable to sit on. The quality of the seat cushion is fair at best due to the poor quality of the padding & the construction of the seat. I'll keep them, though, because the color goes well with my decor, theyll be used only occasionally & I don't wish to hassle w/ returns.
