This vibrant set of two modern adjustable barstools is a great addition to a kitchen or bar. Available in red, chocolate, lime green, cream, black, and yellow, these adjustable-height stools swivel 360 degrees. The seat height ranges from 25 to 34 inches....more
The chairs look nice and are fairly comfortable for the price. They are quick to assemble too, though I would note that the lever on one of the chairs was not capable of adjusting the height of the seat post. Fortunately, a quick torque was enough to bend the lever into shape and render it functional. I will simply chalk that up to possible shipping damage and conveniently look the other way.
The one inexcusable structural flaw in the design is how the backrest/arm bar is attached to the chair. Since the chairs are high up, people naturally tend to use the arm bar to help hoist themselves up into the seat. Paired with the foot bar, the arm bar is charged with supporting about half the person's weight while mounting or dismounting the chair. Rather than being bolted to something secure - like the metal plate which bolts the seat to the seat post - the arm bar is simply screwed into the particle board that constitutes the bottom of the seat cushion. Consequently, as people get in and out of chair they gradually strip the screws from the cheap wood. If you have small children, this can mean random bolts on the floor for them to pick up and curiously ingest. If you have guests, this can mean an impromptu visit to the floor while announcing the arrival of gravity as your social's guest of honor.
If you happen to have access to a metal fabrication facility - which who doesn't nowadays? - you can quite simply cut, drill, and tap a metal plate to meet the structural needs of the chair. If you plan on actually using these chairs - i.e. they will not just sit in the corner and look pretty - I would highly recommend this route as it will transform them from the overly cheap chairs you did not realize you were buying, into the standard fair, cheap chairs you thought you spent your money on. Even simpler would be to just buy a different make.
Matisse Company, I thumb my nose at you for inexcusable structural designs. Local metal fabricator, I applaud your assistance in rendering my chairs structurally sound for the mere added cost of $8.00 per chair. Matisse, if a fabricator can interrupt production and upgrade my chairs for $16.00, I would wager that you could simply implement this fix for a negligible cost.
We ordered the stools after having searched for a long time.
First box arrived damaged with both stools dirty, the stains did not come off and the metal had glue on it.
We tried to disassemble the stools but gave up after several attempts and send them back assembled. Seems that you can only assemble them once.
The set was replaced without problems.
New box arrived after 3 days, box damaged, everything as poorly wrapped as the first shipping with just one tiny layer of bubble foil laid around the parts.
One stool was dirty and the upholstery was dented.
I was able to clean the backrest but the dent is still there.
I like the look and they are quite comfortable to sit on, but it does not seem to be easy to send a 100% perfect set.
I would rather buy in a store than orering a comparable item again.
I ordered 2 sets of these stools and they were delivered in just a few days (3 or 4). My husband put them together relatively quickly; the first one took the longest to complete. You know what to expect and what to do with the next ones. The instructions were written and pictured. There was, of course, one screw missing from one box. Easily remedied with a trip to the hardware store (special short screws--don't ya know, not just the run of the mill screw!).
Very comfortable; the back is low and actually supports your low back. I wanted an adjustable stool due to height differences between a table and bartop in the same room. These work perfectly for that situation. Easy to adjust and lightweight enough for me to move easily. They won't be used constantly so I think they'll last. I'm not sure how they'd hold up to really heavy folks or active little kids. I would have given them a 5 star if not for the missing hardware.
The chairs are perfect. They are fun colors, lightweight and comfortable. THe ability to adjust the height is a big hit at my kitchen island.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color match is exactly as shown on webiste.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Chairs are light and sturdy. One of the chairs have a small tear in the material already, but I'm not blaming the product (lots of 20somethings in this house)!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? extremely accurate
I am not a fan of sitting on barstools, probably because I am short, but we just moved into a house with a bar height counter. I wanted modern style and bright colors. My orange barstools took minutes to assemble and are quite comfortable. I looked in several local stores before ordering and I am pleased with the quality, price and comfort.
These chairs arrived much faster than I thought they would. They were easy to assemble, but I was watching TV and not really paying attention. When I finished, one chair worked and one didn't. I was really upset. Then I noticed a little black cap on the floor that had a sticker that read, "Remove Before Assembly." It was a little plastic cap that had protected the hydraulic trigger during shipment. Oops! I could find only one cap, and the chairs come as a set. So I disassembled the faulty chair, and found the little cap wedged into the hydraulic mechanism. Using a hammer and screwdriver, I got it out and reassembled the chair -- it worked fine! As for comfort, they are fine. The cushion is thick, the chrome looks good, and the leather material looks nice and will probably wear well. The chairs are not heavy so I was worried that they would be top heavy. But, because the base is fairly wide, I don't think this is a problem. We really like our new chairs and use them everyday. One feature I really like is that they rise high enough to fit our kitchen bar/counter which is built very high. Great value for the money.
Although we haven't sat in the chairs yet, we are happy with the way they are constructed. The colors are the feature that really sold me, they are bright and really draw your eye. We are adding a breakfast bar to our kitchen and we purchased 2 lime green and 2 purple chairs as a color accent. I can't wait to actually use them!!

Is there someplace in western WA to look at these stools? Also, does the foot rest go up with the height of the seat when you pull up on the lever?camf203 on Mar 31, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry regarding the Axis Adjustable Barstools (Set of 2). Yes, when you adjust the height of the seat, the distance between the seat and the footrest stays the same, the footrest does move with the seat. I hope this answer helps you. We don't know of any place in western Washington where you can go to look at the stools. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 3, 2013

Thank you for your inquiry. We did some research and found new information which we will have posted on site as soon as possible. The highest point of the barstool is 42".(when it is completely extended)but when you adjust the chair ,your seating area would be from 25" to 34" .

Could you please tell me the height of chrome arm rests at front of chair to see if it will fit under bench? also how do I purchase 3 bar stools instead of 2 or 4??? Thank youtiggernins1 on Dec 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I would say that the chrome is maybe 5 inches lower that the top of the backrest which is 32 inches so that would be about 27 inches. This item is only sold in sets of two.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 26, 2012
All of our barstools are chrome finished with synthetic leather, making them indoor only.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 20, 2012
It says the height can be adjusted up to 34" is that measuring from the floor to the seat or from the floor to the top of the back rest? How far from the floor to the seat is the largest it can extend?emilyhtn on Jun 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Is the colour shown a good representation of the actual item? I'm looking at the yellow, but want a golden yellow as opposed to a bright lemon yellow. Thank youcalicosuz on Feb 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Although color can slightly differ due to monitor settings; we would say our image color is accurate. We would describe the yellow as more of a banana yellow than golden or lemon. We hope this helps with your purchase decision.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 21, 2012
