These chairs are awesome! They make your dining room look like you spent a fortune! Couple of key notes: These chairs are not easy (time wise) to put together! Even though they only come in 4 pieces: Back of chair w/2 legs attached, seat cushion and 2 front legs. If you bought 8 chairs (like we did), plan on it taking the whole day to put together. Get you a flash light and a socket wrench that has an Allen Wrench head set. You might have to use the 5/16 size but I'm not sure on that size. It comes with your basic allen wrench but after you put the 3rd chair together, your fingers start getting swollen from gripping and turning with the allen wrench. We had two chairs that came with a leg that was like an 1/8 of an inch off. We fixed that by putting on a foot cushion that goes on the bottom of legs on the chair to prevent scratching your floors. Voila! We were stable. When you get to the stage of attaching the cushion to the back of the chair, put in the middle screw first (on the diagram) to keep all the holes lined up in place, when you go to add the other screws. The flash light will help you to see down in the holes to make sure you have them all lined up prior to putting in the screws. Lay all the screws out. They come in 3 different sizes for each chair. The washers are oily so becareful when handling them and the chairs (not to get grease on your fabric). Definitely invest in Scotch Guard to protect your chairs. One can will do 1 treatment for 8 chairs. (Scotch Guard suggests you put 2 treatments/coats on). The chairs are worth the money!!! You won't find a bargain on expensive looking chairs like these! And the time spent putting them together is worth the compliments you will receive!!!
