These chairs are gorgeous!!! Like another reviewer wrote, they look much more expensive than they are. They are not difficult at all to put together. I ordered 8 and put together 7 of them by myself in about an hour. The 8th chair was damaged. I'm waiting for a replacement. I'm hoping I'll receive it in a week, as promised, in time for my Chrismas visitors. I would definitely recommend these chairs. Comfortable too!! I gave 4 stars only because one of the seams in the piping on one of the chairs is a bit off, but you really have to be examining the chair to notice.
