Rated 5 out of 5 by Twsmummy Good looking and comfortable
I bought four of these chairs, in the smoke colour, to go with my new round table in my kitchen. They look good with the table (which has a glass top) and the black granite worktops. The chairs are very comfortable to sit on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SidN Gel Chair Assembly tips
Bought two of these chairs to use in our office/grand kids play room.
The chairs only take a few mins to put together. Like a lot of the other buyers the holes on the legs supplied on the chairs did not line up exactly.
To get over this problem put in the three easy screws with the chair upside down as shown on the diagrams. Do not tighten the screws fully. Leave the back leg on the left hand side (when the chair is upside down) as the last to do. The screw did not line up on this one for me.
Next put the chair on its side with the left leg with no screw uppermost.
Gently put pressure onto the bar of left leg aligning the hole and put in the bolt. When done tighten up the screws as the information leaflet says. In my case i was only trying to move the leg a few millimeters to align the hole.
I believe the diagram to be incorrect for the back protection spacers. These need to be placed behind the screws. They will fall down the legs so if you need them a little glue should help.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MCHJ Beautiful but a nightmare to assemble
These chairs look very stylish and, now that we have put them together, they look pretty sturdy.
However, the assembly was extremely difficult. It's only a matter of putting 4 screws into 4 holes but it was nearly impossible to align them. We finally managed it - after several attempts and nearly 2 1/2 hours perseverance.
I see that others have made similar complaints and this defect does detract from John Lewis's otherwise excellent standards and quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by monkey64 Typical self assembly nightmare
The supplied instructions refer to 4 rubber spacers which can be used to prevent damage to the plastic if the chairs are scratched and they are pre added to the metal legs.
Unfortunately it is impossible to fit them as per the Instructions because the spacers are the wrong size and the screws are not long enough. Belive me, we tried... We had to remove them in order to assemble the chairs which means that they will scratch the plastic if we ever stack them.
Also one washer was missing from the red chair. JL: Could you send one on?
All in all, they look good and there are some really exciting colours.

Bought this green gel chair in September. Still sitting in my dining room. The screws do not line up and the rear of the chair is scratched. Cancelled the second chair before it arrived. Absolute waste of money.

These chairs deserve five stars for the finished look, choice of colours and comfort but were a bit of a nightmare to assemble. The first three screws to attach the legs were easy but sorting the final one in each was difficult. We finally succeeded with the clear and the pink but needed an engineer neighbour to finish the green and purple ones. Look great with the Frost glass table and throw gorgeous patterns on the floor when the sun shines.

Bought two smoke and two green chairs to go with a round glass top bistro style table to put in our small kitchen/diner. The clearness of the glass and perspex ensures they don't over power the area, they also brighten the dark room.
Perfect for our needs. Worth the pre-order waiting time. Fantastic service as always from JL.
