The first chair took the longest to assemble because the drawing illustrating which bolts go where was a little too small. Once the first chair was done, however, putting together the other 3 was quick and easy. I bought the unfinished wood version. The wood is very smooth and ready for paint/stain. The only reason I didn't give these chairs a 5 is because there are no pre-drilled holes under the seat. To make sure it was on straight, I measured and put a pencil mark on the center back of the chair frame, and another one the center back of the seat. I put the seat on the chair, lined up the two marks, then used clamps to hold the seat in place while I turned the chair upside down and screwed the seat on. Since they are wood screws, you don't have to drill pilot holes first. Just get out your screwdriver and twist away. Tip # 1: To keep the chairs from wobbling, DO NOT tighten any of the bolts down until they are all in place. After all 11 bolts are screwed in, but BEFORE you make them snug, turn the chair right side up and put in on a flat, level surface (like the floor). The chair legs will automatically level themselves out. If the chair doesn't wobble, gently tighten all the bolts down. Tip # 2: Don't over tighten the bolts. There are very small washers included called 'split ring lock washers' and if you tighten the bolts too much, those washers will flatten out and then they won't do their job (which is to keep the bolts from coming loose over time). P.S. I know very little about carpentry and learned all this stuff the hard way. Good luck and happy decorating.

Ordered a set of four chairs in the neutral color and received them in two days with no damage. These chairs were easy to put together. I'm not sure what kind of wood is used but it looks like a hard wood, the box says they are made in Viet Nam. I was surprised that the sanding and sprayed on finish was really good work, probably done by machine. One chair had a much darker piece of wood on the tall side near the back slats, and one chair has a front leg that seems to be a tad short which makes it rock a little, I think a small chair pad on the bottom will correct this. I can live with these problems, after all , these chairs were replacements for a kitchen dinette set that were sixteen years old and falling apart. One thing about these chairs is their not very tall, only 34.75 inches, my old chairs were 39 inches tall. This will take a little getting used to looking at. These are sturdy chairs that look like they wont fall apart after six months and for the price I paid, I'm pleased.

Chairs seem fine with simple assembly. The wrench provided is a little soft so as to not damage the screw recesses. This is fine, but it stripped out and I had to final tighten with my own wrench. Very good deal for the money. Solid chairs .
A good simple and sturdy chair

I wanted 6 solid but small chairs for our vacation home dining room. These chairs are perfect. They are the right size and color, and they were pretty easy to assemble. One of the seats was cracked, but customer service was extremely responsive and sent out a replacement immediately. My only complaint is that the seat was difficult to secure to the base--no pre-drilled holes for that. I ended up with blisters on my hands from screwing on six seats. Love the chairs.
Rock solid chair!

These chairs are easy to assemble and are rock-solid sturdy. I purchased the cinnamon/espresso combo and couldn't be happier. I selected the ladderback style for ease in cleaning - I didn't want dirt and dust to be trapped in fancy dowels. I would recommend these to anyone looking for replacement chairs.
Exactly what I wanted

I recently stained my table black and planned to buy these chairs unfinished and stain them to match. But, after the hassle of staining decided to go with the black chairs instead. I was worried that the black wouldn't match but they are the perfect match! These chairs are sturdy, well-built, easy to assemble and very nice looking. Rich black color. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommend!

Great chair for the price. I purchased five of them for my dining set and I just love them. There's seriously nothing that stands out that was disappointing or unexpected at all. Great quality and very easy to put together. Great choice for the money.
Madrid ladder back chairs

I am more than happy with these 2 chairs. Not only are they sturdy and durable, but I love the clean white finish with the oak seat. This item has far surpassed my expectations, and very, very, easy to assemble. Thanks for a great deal! A wonderful addition for my breakfast nook!

We are very happy with quality of the chairs. Putting them together was easy but did take some time simply due to the quality and redundancy of the hardware holding the chairs together. You simply can't go wrong with these chairs, especially for the price.

The chairs were exactly like the pictures and description. I am very pleased with my purchase. The chairs are solid and feel durable. The only complaint I have is the amount of pieces they came in. It would have been nice to have more preassembled in the box
