"what rights do consumers have when receiving items unassembled without any prior knowledge that the items would be received that way?"
There is no specific law or Statute that addresses the exact issue of merchandise delivered unassembled to the consumer. This issue would be governed by false and deceptive advertising and false and deceptive business practices. A failure to disclose a material fact to a consumer is just as deceptive as making a false statement or misrepresenting merchandise in their description.
If Joss & Main did not disclose that the chairs would be delivered unassembled, then they failed to disclose a material fact about the chairs and how you would be receiving the chairs and that you would have to assemble them. They are in violation of the Massachusetts Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Where a merchant's engages in deceptive advertising such as showing the chairs in photographs as fully assembled, it does not matter whether or not the merchant has a return policy or not; They will have to take them back if you do not want them.
If you want to return the chairs, inform Joss & Main by Certified letter, Return Receipt Requested. If they refuse to accept the return of the chairs, you should report them and file a formal Complaint against them with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC"). They are the Federal agency that acts as the consumers' "watchdog" and they have the power and authority to investigate ad prosecute them. You can file your formal Complaint on their Official website,
You should also file a formal Complaint with the Massachusetts Attorney General,
The Attorney General also has the power and authority to investigate, prosecute, and fine them, but more importantly, the Office of the Attorney General can prevent them from doing any business with Massachusetts residents,
