This is a very NICE set for the price, and I would recommend it for small areas. I bought the Tobacco Black place, and it's not a true black, but more like a dark dark darkish, almost black. I got this set to set up a vacant house I have for sale. This dining set makes the empty house feel more homey, and it gives potential buyers a place to sit back to create up an offer (I am hoping!). I assembled it by myself, and it took me about 2-1/2 hours. Getting it from the shipping box took nearly so long as the assembly.... okay, I'm exaggerating there, but it was VERY well packed, and all the portions were in pristine condition. As a result of size total excess fat of the shipping package (104 lbs), I opened up the box where it was provided down stairs, and carried the portions upstairs. Assembly was EASY, simply time consuming. I'm a power tool, person, so assembly with only an allen wrench can be tedious for me. I did so use my cordless drill to drive the screws that hold the seat section onto the chair. But you have to be careful when utilizing a power drill hence that you don't over-tighten the screws, which could cause them to totally go through the seat. When assembling the chairs, it's best to not entirely tighten the allen bolts right away. Tighten them to where they will be snug nevertheless, you still have some more turns, in that case take the chair and set it upright on to the floor ( use a difficult floor, not carpeting). After that take one of the seats and put in on the chair and sit on it to obtain the chair level, then finish tightening all of the allen bolts, being mindful to not mess up the alignment you merely made to get it level. Once done, it looks great.
