Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Extremely difficult to assemble - Would not buy again
These are great chairs....when they are finally put together. The tool that is included to help expand the chairs in order to install the seat is worthless and can ruin the wicker. In order to assemble these chairs, you need at least three people and even then installing the seat is difficult as the holes (4) for the screws do not line up. I would not buy these again or even recommend these to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by erusso VERY difficult assembly
This set is a bit hard for me to put into words. There are many pros and a few very important cons. First of all, the pieces, when put together, are very pretty. They feel durable, they look well made and the cushions are very comfortable. The pillows are just an added bonus. They make our patio look fantastic! On the down side, these were EXTREMELY difficult to put together. They shouldn't be. In theory, this should be the easiest set to assemble as all it is is putting two pieces together with some screws. The holes don't line up making this process very very hard. I would say this should take 15 minutes to put together, but it takes somewhere around 1 1/2 hours+. When I finally got the second chair together, one screw in the back somehow split in two. This has never happened to me, and I consider this a poor quality control issue. That being said, all the blood, sweat, and tears went into it and I accomplished the building of our patio set. I would still recommend this to other people because it is pretty and it does seem durable (haven't had it long enough to know for sure). Also, I don't consider myself a novice when it comes to building furniture. I've probably built 15 things before including several desks, bookshelves, etc.
Also, side note, the cushions are a light green color. It is very hard to tell from the picture. They are very pretty, though. I love the color.
