Add a touch of Alexis style to your kitchen with this counter-height stool. This counter stool features a 360-degree swivel seat and individually hand-applied Genuine Germany brass nailhead trim.
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.

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!

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.
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.
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.

I bought two of these. They seem pretty good so far. Perfectly match my cherry wood cabinets and floors. They haven't fallen apart in the two weeks I've owned them. After reading other reviews, I was afraid of cracking the wood, but that didn't happen to me. I suspect some people don't know you cannot tighten screws in wood like you can in metal; at some point you stop filling the drilled hole and start expanding it. I did see one crack in the wood when it arrived, but it appeared to be minor enough I didn't want to put up with the hassle of exchanging. After a day of sitting in each, they loosened up a bit, and I had to retighten the screws.
