This is a very well-made, quality set. We received it in under two weeks, which was good because we are not in a major metro area. The shipping co was very professional and pleasant to deal with. They called and delivered the same day. We put the entire set together in about 1.5 hours - very straight-forward and easy to follow directions. The set is comfortable and easy to use - we love the butterfly leaf! The chairs are very sturdy and will accomodate all sizes. We also love the finishes. It is a beautiful set and looks like it would have cost more. It is a great value and we cannot say enough good things about it!
