I purchased 4 of these chairs to go with a 50's chrome table at our cottage. They are very attractive and comfortable. My entire family had a laugh at the written directions-they sounded like a poor translation from Chinese! However, the illustrations made the assembly clear. There were no pilot holes for the screws in the seats, so this took a little extra time and effort--but otherwise the assembly was easy. I am very satisfied with these chairs, and they look great!
