I ordered these chairs after purchasing a table from a local furniture store. We didn't like the chairs that accompanied the table, so we hunted elsewhere for the chairs and found these. They are beautiful! They arrived in less in a week. The boxes arrived a little beat up, but the contents inside were undammaged. They were fairly easy to put together. A couple were a little difficult to allign at first, but taking my time definitely helped. A couple of tips: Make sure that you follow insturctions and only tighten the bolts 80% of the way then place on a hard flat surface (not carpet) to tighten. This should ensure that all legs will be even. Also, watch out for the washers and screws. They are pre-oiled and can stain the chairs. While assembling the chairs, don't place them directly on the chairs. The measurements and colors are pretty true to the pictures. The seat height is 18.5 inches. I didnt find this on the measurements given in the description. I highly recommend these chairs!
