I really do like the way these chairs look. The red is beautiful. However, I didn't anticipate it taking quite so long to assemble them. The biggest problem was that the seat bottoms don't have pre-drilled holes or markings to indicate where you should screw in the brackets to connect the chair-bottom to the chair-base/legs. It took some interesting maneuvering to figure out where the brackets should go, and then some real effort to get the screw started and balanced. I didn't use a drill. I'd imagine if you used a drill, you'd be done with that step in 5 minutes. It probably took me about 3-3.5 hours to assemble all 4 chairs. They seem fairly sturdy though, so I think it was a good purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good (red)
