This set is more stunning in person. Very easy to essemble and VERY strudy! My husband is a big guy who has broken chairs from other sets in the past and this does the trick for him. Everything came within a week of ordering, everything was in good shape upon delievery and accounted for. Just check to see what freight service you have in your area. They didn't call before delievery and we weren't home, but they brought it in the next day.
