This is a very NICE set for the purchase price, and I would recommend it for small areas. I purchased the Tobacco Black collection, and it's not really a true black, but similar to a dark dark darkish, almost black. I got this set to set up a vacant house I've on the market. This dining set produces the empty house feel considerably more homey, and it offers potential buyers a destination to sit down to write up an offer (I am hoping!). I assembled it by myself, and it took me about 2-1/2 hours. Getting it out of your shipping box took practically so long as the assembly.... fine, I'm exaggerating there, nonetheless it was Perfectly packed, and all the portions were in pristine condition. Because of the size total excess fat of the shipping package (104 lbs), I opened up the box where it had been provided down stairs, and carried the pieces upstairs. Assembly was EASY, simply time consuming. I'm a saw, person, so assembly with merely an allen wrench is tedious for me. I did work with my cordless drill to operate a vehicle the screws that contain the seat section onto the couch. But you have to be careful when by using a power drill thus that you do not over-tighten the screws, that could cause them to completely go through the seat. When assembling the chairs, you need to not completely tighten the allen bolts immediately. Tighten them to where they happen to be snug nevertheless, you still have a few more turns, after that take the chair and place it upright on the floor ( use a difficult floor, not carpeting). In that case take among the seats and devote on the chair and take a seat on it to achieve the chair level, then surface finish tightening all of the allen bolts, being cautious to not mess up the alignment you just made to get it level. Once done, it looks great.
