I bought two of these stools for kitchen counter sitting. They came well packaged and extremely easy to put together. A few screws and glue and they were ready to go. The material is solid wood, no wood composite to be seen. This is a chunky piece of furniture, not a delicate one. The seat is well made, appears to be mahogany. The dark stain is a rich chocolate brown with under tones of red. The seat itself is larger than expected, pay attention to measurements. The only slight complaint would be that the seat is completely flat with no indentation so it's not as comfortable as other stools I've used. The swivel mechanism is smooth and turns 360 degrees. The turned spindles and remaining pieces are made from solid wood, which may be a pine or lighter type of wood. The screw holes have metal female connectors, not just wood. Very well made product and would highly recommend it. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a metal cross piece that is not all that attractive. It is attached with screws so I'm assuming it could be removed. The function over-rides the aesthetics for me so it's staying on.
I was looking for stools that my kids could sit on and not fall off, while also being attractive and comfortably seating adults. The swivel feature makes them easy to slide on to, and the size of the seat itself is quite large - which is good for adults and children alike, though for different reasons! The stools complement our decor nicely and do not stick out as if they were an afterthought, but almost like they were made for the house. Great quality, I highly recommend.

Matches kitchen decor, perfectly. Easy assembly, except that I had to rummage around the house to find a wood screw to replace the one that arrived bent. Really, why don't these companies throw in an extra screw or 2, just in case. My Weber grill from Amazon had the same problem.

These stools are very well made and went together quite easily and quickly. They are more of a creamy yellow color, which was what I was hoping for after reading other reviews. .I would not call them ivory...unless maybe an old/antique ivory. The swivel is nice and smooth and is a nice feature. The only drawback is the seat...if it had a slight indentation it would be a little more comfortable. We replaced high back stools that just took up too much room in our small kitchen. Very happy with my purchase (bought 3).
We bought two of these stools to go under our island counter overhang. The 24 inch stool size fits nicely. (as I read in previous reviews) The seat top is much larger than your average stool, however I must say I like it a lot better because of this. It's very comfortable to sit on (sitting on it now as I type this). The legs/base of the stool has a little more yellow hue to it than we wanted, to match other furniture and cabinets, so I may end up painting the base later. Overall it seems to be of great quality and should last a really long time. We did consider fabric topped stools, but with little kids I'm sure they wouldn't last long.
Purchased 2 stools to go with Pavina Pub Bar Table from this site. Fit perfectly under table. Creates an "eat-in kitchen" area in my small kitchen. Color was more "yellow" than antique white and had to paint white (needed two coats of semi-glass) to match table. Stools are stable and heavy - good quality. The cross bar piece on both had to be replaced - wooden dowel on one was broken off and all wooden dowels on second were misaligned. Took a week to get replacements, but customer service was excellent and chairs went together easily once replacement parts were received. My grandson and his cousin love sitting on the stools at the table - it's the "kid's table" whenever we have company so they get to sit higher and can see everything that is going on at the adult's table.
This is a very nice product! I bought four of them for the kitchen and already everyone in my family happily perches on them. They swivel with ease and the seat is nice and wide, making for a much more comfortable sit. I know others talked about removing the bar on the lower support, but I think it adds a look and also protects the wood from all of our feet, as that's where they automatically want to go as we sit on them. Would definitely purchase again.

These stools are great. The seat is much bigger than expected... which is good. They also swivel. I am tall, so not having a spot to rest my feet is okay... but if you're short, I would consider that before purchase. The match the coordinating island beautifully!

I took a chance on this stool after I read the reviews. It is really a nice stool for the money, not difficult to put together if you have some patience. The turned legs (cream color) and dark brown seat are charming. I purchased these as a temporary stool for my 36 inch high white round table thinking that I would replace them as soon as I found the stool I REALLY WANTED. Now that I have these stools and have been sitting on them I like these so much I am considering 2 more.
First I bought two for my kitchen island, was so impressed with the quality I am buying two more, everyone wants to sit on them when they come to the house, they swivel, they're a perfect height - I just love them.

stools easy to assemble (by huz not me!) - bad news one box had parts missing - good news they shipped immediately - like the stools - love the swivel seat - only part that might bother some is the cross bar that you tend to rest your feet on when sitting is a little awkward - but look & color just what i wanted!
The quality of this stool is very good. Sturdy and solid. Arrived in pieces in the box with everything you need to put it together. Very easy to put together no problems at all. Be sure to put 2 legs on and then attach the center x bar before you put on the 3rd and 4th leg..(heads up if your like me and don't like to read instructions ;0) Overall very nice, just as pictured on website arrived quickly and packed nicely.
