I love this set and paid less than the retail. Assembly of table was done when I bought,floor model, the chairs came in a box, 4. At home I recommend using a 1/4" socket one attaching the seat back to the bottom, 3, then attach the side arm at the top bolt first and then the middle bolt get started, set the chair pieces on cardboard to avoid scratching the metal. Ours went together great and when we sat in them were level. The width of table should be wider so the two chairs can fit under better, and also to accommodate a umbrella base.
Ouch! I spent 3hrs putting 3 chairs together. I still have 5 left, I bought 2 sets. I am looking to hire a handyman to help me put them together and the table. They all looked so nice in the store. But when you put them together none of the holes line up towards the end. Terrible. I had to bend the arms to get them to line up and they still look uneven and the legs do not all sit on the floor evenly. I should have paid a little more and gotten them preassembled somewhere else. They do seem durable even though they rock a bit.
Wish I had read the other review on this product before buying. There is a serious quality issue with the chairs the screw holes do not line up and you and almost impossible to get the chairs put together. Also if you buy the seven piece set not all of the chairs fit under the table!
My husband had no trouble putting this together and getting it on our patio shortly after it arrived. The table arrived with a couple of dings on it, but we decided to keep it rather than ship it back. It looks nice - bright red with grey makes it modern but the style has a traditional feel. We didn't want anything too nice or high maintenance, so this is a good casual starter set. We've only had it a couple weeks, hopefully it holds up through the next couple of years!

Terrible packaging means that this will arrive damaged
The 4 chairs arrived in one large box. The box is too large and awkwardly heavy to lift for one person. If you attempt to return it Target will insist on you returning it to a store or a UPS/USPS even though this is unfeasible for anyone who doesn't have a truck and two strong people to assist. The box was damaged in transit because the cardboard is not strong enough for the weight of the chairs. There was a hole in the cardboard and the pack containing the bolts and washers had ripped open and many of the washers were missing. The chairs were in two pieces and required 4 bolts to be put together. The metal frames were only partially covered in paper to protect them however the powder coating was poorly done and had come off in large chunks where the chairs had rubbed together. The metal is cheap junky steel so where the paint rubbed off it will rust quickly if you don't fix it. I expect the cheap PVC fabric will fade quickly in UV too.
I ordered 4 of these chairs without a single review, was nervous but now that we have them assembled and had our first party am very pleased with them.
Were they a pain to assemble..yes. The screws are cheaply made and a few had stripped, we had to buy new screws. The holes did not always line up but with determination all four chairs have been assembled and look great outside.
Last night it rained and the entire chair including the cusions are water resistant, the water simply rolls right off the cushions.
Furniture really looks nice, my neighbors love it and great value for your money.
We are thinking about ordering the loveseat. I should also add the chairs are very comfortable, my husband is 6' 3" 205lbs, I am 5' 11" 150lbs and the chairs are great, great back support and super comfy.
Would I recommend these chairs? Yes, especially for [$$]
I live on the 26th floor of a high rise condo. The Target people pulled the chairs out of the box and we got all 4 of them into my car without even using the trunk! They were super easy to assemble. [...]SCORE!!
At first, I was concerned that they would be hard to put together. It literally took me less than hour to assemble all four chairs with no tools needed. They look amazing and are very comfortable.
This set is perfect for the balcony of a high rise apartment building. The problem is that you need a pickup to bring it home from the store, like so many residents of high rise apartment buildings drive. And if you buy it online, it takes a month to be delivered, with zero visibility as to when said delivery will actually happen. Great product. Stupid execution.
