The chair is beautiful; looks better than pictured. The fabric looks richer than the picture and is a sage color (the picture looked a bit taupe to me, but it is really sage in living color). It was very easy to assemble -- just 3 bolts. The front legs are pre-attached to the seat of the chair; the back legs are pre-attached to the back of the chair. You assemble these two pieces with 3 bolts (the seat gets attached to the back). As I was doing this I wondered about weight limits and yes, because the seat is attached to the back with 3 bolts this area will be the weak spot so the chair has a maximum weight limit of 250 lb. I point this out because I did not look at weight limits when I purchased it. It is not a problem for me or most of my family, but I do have a couple of big friends that would not be able to sit in the chair... That said it is a gorgous addition to my living room. It makes a perfect accent chair.
