I purchased three sets of these chairs for a total of six chairs. I wanted to add a slightly more modern and polished look to my dining room table and loved the simple looking design of these chairs. Each set of chairs arrived in a large box. Each box weighed over 30 pounds. Of the three, one box arrived with a big hole in the box. Fortunately, all of the contents inside were wrapped except for two chair legs whose wrapping had come off and the hardware was ripped open and loose inside the box. As a result, several washers were missing and I am unable to assemble that chair until I go out and purchase some additional washers. Since I had to bring each box up to my second floor apartment, I had hoped to assemble two chairs, clear away the boxes, bring up the next set, etc. But I was unable to locate and instructions for how to assemble the chairs so ended up opening all the boxes in search of them. It was on the third box that I brought upstairs that the packing slip was included and had a note about the bottom of the seat portion of the chair. It was then that I realized the underside of each seat cushion had a removable piece under which the directions were included. Thank goodness! Overall, it wasn't too difficult to assemble the chairs. Some holes were hard to match up and it definitely helps to have a drill to secure all the pieces together. The chairs are all a bit wobbly. There are notes about how to correct this but it was more than I could be bothered with after spending close to two hours putting 5 or my 6 chairs together. The 6th chair will have to be assembled at a later date due to the aforementioned missing washers. They aren't the sturdiest of chairs either, meaning if you have very obese company over for dinner, I would not feel safe letting them sit in them, but for the average weighted person, they seem fine enough and fairly comfortable. They do look fantastic though.
