All shipped flat pack assembled. GRADE A Teak (why is this important?)
These Providence Chairs are extremely comfortable and very well made. They are even more comfortable than they look. We purchased an Oval Extension Table, some Providence chairs with arms and some without. We also got a couple of the Portsmouth Recliners. All the products are excellent. The table was very easy to assemble - just put on the legs. The chairs needed no assembly. I am recommending Goldenteak to my friends.
Our patio area has a small covered portion. When it is time to store the unit or get it out of the elements the collapsible feature is outstanding. 4 stackable arm chairs were included in our purchase and they also take up very little storage space. We have found the fit and finish of these products to be above average and I would highly recommend them. Oh yes they are also comfortable, practical,and an attractive addition to ones out of doors activities.
