I Love love love these chairs!!! They add so much personality to my room I am now searching for the perfect pillows to put on them... I put them together myself.. and I am pretty handy but they appeared to be a bit difficult at first. It seems like the holes may not be lined up properly... with a little patience it all came together just fine (my advise is get the outer bolts in first even it's only one on each side and the tighter you get them the holes line up then the center bolts... it was cake!!! I am so very happy with these chairs!!! I have been complimented by everyone that sees them!!!
