This is an extremely NICE set for the purchase price, and I would recommend it for small areas. I purchased the Tobacco Black set, and it's not really a true black, but more like a dark dark dark brown, almost black. I got this set to set up a vacant house I've for sale. This dining set will make the empty house feel considerably more homey, and it offers potential buyers a place to sit back to create up an offer (I am hoping!). I assembled it without any help, and it took me about 2-1/2 hours. Getting it out from the shipping box took nearly so long as the assembly.... ok, I'm exaggerating there, but it was VERY well packed, and every one of the bits were in pristine condition. Due to the size total weight of the shipping and delivery package (104 lbs), I opened the box where it had been sent down stairs, and carried the portions upstairs. Assembly was EASY, only time consuming. I'm a saw, person, so assembly with simply an allen wrench is normally tedious for me. I did so employ my cordless drill to operate a vehicle the screws that contain the seat section onto the seat. Nevertheless, you have to be careful when utilizing a power drill therefore that you don't over-tighten the screws, which could cause them to totally go through the chair. When assembling the chairs, it's best to not completely tighten the allen bolts right away. Tighten them to where they happen to be snug nevertheless, you still have some more turns, after that take the chair and place it upright on to the floor ( use a difficult floor, not carpeting). After that take among the seats and devote on the chair and sit on it to get the chair level, then end tightening all the allen bolts, being mindful never to mess up the alignment you just made to obtain it level. Once completed, it looks great.
