As others have said, these chairs are a great value, look good and are quite comfortable. I ordered 6. At first I wasn't sure what all the fuss was about regarding assembly - the front legs go on effortlessly. The rear legs, not so much. After struggling w/the first, I was dreading doing 5 more. With a friend's help, we got it done, some went a little easier than others, but overall it was definitely not fun. Some tips...you have to jiggle the rear legs while you're threading the screws (7 on the rear), I found it somewhat easier to use a drill w/hex driver once threaded in, but the screws are soft metal and will strip easily if you muscle it. I'm glad it's done!
