I absolutely adore these bar stools. I bought 3 at counter height and 4 at bar height. They were very easy to assemble and are quite comfortable to sit in. And, we sit in them constantly. These were part of a larger rremodeling project for our kitchen, and, everyone comments on how stylish and comfortable they are. I actually plan to buy another bar height bar stool. The leather is rich and supple, and, the brass tacks are an excellent "punch" for the look. It reminds me of an English Pub. The fact that they swivel is a complete bonus. They arrived when promised and without damage. You gotta love Overstock.com! I have already recommended these to a friend in Miami who will be visiting next week. In my opinion, these are an outstanding value.
We had been looking for counter stools for our kitchen island for months and really liked nothing we saw enough to buy them. When we saw these what really attracted us was the riveting along the padded seat as it makes it look classy compared to most. I was a little worried about how much work would be involved in putting them together, but found that they took about 20-25 minutes each and it was relatively easy. The first one always takes the longest, but the rest were quick. These stools are comfortable and look very nice. We are very pleased with our purchase!

The bar stools are very nice but they came in a million pieces. If it was up to me, I would have sent them right back. There was nothing in the description that told you how awful the assembly of these chairs were. My husband got good at it by the 4th chair. I could never have done it.
Buying furniture online is always a risk. I took that risk and ordered 3 of the counter height stools. I had a handyman put the stools together because I read of the difficulties from others in assembly. One stool went together fine and swivels properly and is quite comfortable. Another had the same issues as described by other customers. The hardware and holes did not match up making it difficult to assemble. If you forced the hardware and overtightened (some of the screws will show), the wood will easily crack. There was a structural flaw with the stool as well and it was very tilted to one side. The leather backing was also not inserted properly and kept popping out. I will definitely have to send this one back as it is not functional. The third stool has yet to arrive. It's been lost travelling around the US for some time.

These stools are very rich looking & are actually pretty comfortable. Putting them together was a bit difficult (holes didn't line up, a set of washers was missing, difficult angles to tighten bolts, very blurry instructions that were difficult to decipher...) and it's a 2 person endeavor (to get everything lined up and tightened. The first one cracked significantly on one of the rungs (obviously a recurrent problem as they put in extra washers & an instruction insert on how to prevent cracking the legs--unfortunately the washers they enclosed didn't fit over the screw so make sure to have a set of your own multi-size washers on hand as back up!) We got better with the next two and were very delicate but it took over 4 hrs to put together the 3 stools. They look nice & more expensive than the cost but only one swivels with ease so we're hoping the other 2 break-in--and we have to watch that the kids don't step on the cracked rung, which has split significantly.
Beware that the description does not match what you will actually receive. These chairs are not leather and they are made in China not Switzerland. Also, the brand that we received was completely different than what is advertised. If made in China and polyurethane instead of leather is your style, then these chairs are for you. Called the company and asked for a half refund. Initially gave us grief over this...Eventually was given a sum for store credit. I'm thoroughly confused how this company is getting away with lying to its customers. Good luck!
The stools are just what they look like and we are very pleased with them. They're sturdy and very attractive. Swivel very easily. One thing is that the screws were not in the right numbered bubble, but figured it out and was easy to put together.
The only thing my husband had with the stools. Which we got 4 of them. Was that a couple of them the holes didn't line up. But he worked on them and got them together. It's just like anything you put together you need to take your time and have Patience.
