I knew what to expect - I'm not disappointed. The box arrived a bit bashed in but the contents were not harmed. Assembly not hard: the bottom of the back section is velcrowed (to attach the arms you just open up the velcrow and screw in). I intentionally spent time analyzing the legs before attaching them. The interior of the legs are angled, ensure the right angles face the outside of each corner. Front left side leg has a gap where the it screws into the base. The tag says "leather" but online it is correctly labeled vynil so I didn't care. The material is somewhat thin so I've warned my kids not to jump on it (wish me luck on that). Overall satisfied.
