One stool feels solid but the other isn't. I took it apart and reassembled it but it didn't help.

These seem to be a combination of 50s diner style and futuristic space age furniture. Whichever it is I don't care, I just care that they look great in my kitchen. Like another reviewer said, the black is a little sparkly so they look great next to granite. They're about the same quality as similar stools I've seen in big box stores and these are little more expensive, but they have a bigger seat and I like the design better.

I ordered two of these stools. The first stool I put together was perfect. Everything lined up. The second stool would not line up correctly, one screw will not go in all the way. Sticks out over 1/2 inch. Very disappointed in the second stool. To much trouble to take apart and send back.

Very nice looking chairs for the money. Have put together 4 of the 7 ordered. Very easy. My 8 year old put one together. Very solid when together and bolts are attached at "just tight". Had to remind my son not to over-tighten when using wood. The only 2 improvements I would recommend are including felt pads (for usage on wood floors) and the material on the seat cushion is only okay. Great bar stools for the price (or even 50% more). I had shopped casually for about 9 months before ordering 2. After receiving, I ordered 5 more (for a long kitchen bar area).

These stools are beautiful and very well made....definitely exceeded my expectations. After having a set of $50 stools--light, not super well constructed, but did the job--I went crazy trying to find the tall stools for our new bar that wouldn't break the bank. These are amazingly well constructed,solid, gorgeous. They look like $400 stools IMHO.

I was about to purchase some metal bar stools from***** before I remembered to check out Overstock.com. Boy, am I glad I did. The stools I ordered are cool looking and super sturdy - it's hard to believe they were less than $50 each....they certainly look much richer. And, at less than half of what I would've paid at *****, it's an excellent deal!

Nice stools. Nothing else to say but they insist I have 50 characters.

For the price the bar stool chairs are excellent buy. Very easy to assemble and very functional.

This is a great stool for the price, however, pay no mind to the Overstock "original" price, these are fifty dollar stools through and through. I was so excited to receive them, thinking that they would look very similar to the Tolix stools from DWR. However, there is a substantial quality difference. They seem durable enough, and i love the handle in the middle to move them. I don't think they will last very long. The metallic sheen also wasn't what I was looking for. Since you just can't beat that price I am keeping them!

There is a fair amount of assembly needed, and the assembly instructions are pretty sketchy. I recommend that you sort the hardware using something like a muffin tin, as the screws are all the same diameter, but are in four different lengths(35, 40, 45 and 50 mm), and there are two sizes of flat washers (13 and 16 mm). The call out sheet lists the length of the bolts in mm, which is not useful if you are used to inches. Once I had the length of the screws pinned down, the rest of the assembly went easily, but I did use a 3/8" rachet and a 4 mm socket, rather than the supplied allen key. My wife like the bar stools very much, and we would like to order two more when they are in stock again. The swiveling seat is a nice bonus at this price point.

The chairs were easy to put together, even though one screw hole was too large on one chair and so only three screws are holding the seat instead of four. My kids love them but they are not heavy enough to lower the seat by themselves. Besides, they have too much fun riding up on them and so I have to sit on the chair to adjust the seat back to the needed level - gets tiresome after fifty or so times.

They are absolutely perfect, and at least 50% less than you would pay at a furniture store. Heavy, sturdy, and good quality. You won't be disappointed.

I was hesitant to spend so much on stools, but my sister has a similar type bar and she bought some like wrought-iron type of stools from target. The seating was very small you could barely place your bottom on it, and they fell over all the time because they were flimsy. I knew I didnt want that, so I was willing to spend a little more for better quality. I searched amazon, ebay, craigslist, barstools.con and walmart online and target and also checked a few out in the stores but none of them really seemed very quality-ish. I then decided to check out Overstock and found several options that looked very quality-ish. The deciding factor in me buying from overstock.com was the reviews, I value consumer reviews to see what people pay about a product or service and I love shopping online for that reason. There were not very many reviews for these stools, i think only 7 or so, but each one was scored high. I knew what I wanted in the stools for my bar, I wanted padding, arm rests, and swivel seats. So, I looked up the bartsools, narrowed it down by which ones swivel, were padded, and had armrests, and added all the ones to my shopping cart that I liked. I then further narrowed it down by color scheme, reviews on the product, and price plus quality/ratings. I ended up with a list of 4 all at similar price points with a similar sort of design. These ones had the highest reviews and also, these ones tilt back which I thought was a unique feature. I bought 2 of them, and they were pretty easy to put together, they were pre-assembled into 2 main parts, top and bottom, and you just screw them together. For the minimal amount of construction, they are very sturdy. They are very comfortable and the tilting feature is pretty nice. The first time I thought I would fall backward but in order to flip the chair you'd have to have most of your body weight leaning back and most people aren't that top-heavy. A child standing in this chair would not be a good idea because of the swivel and tilt features. These stools are also very wide- like I said earlier, my sister's 50$ target stools had a small narrow seat bottom. The bottoms on these stools are wide, so even for a wider body type they would be very comfortable you dont have to squeeze into them. Overall, I am glad I invested in some quality stools instead of buying a pair that weren't quality that I hated and probably would have replaced after a while anyway

I ordered 4 bar stools. One was defective (the seat wasn't properly attached to the back), so I returned for an exchange. Once the base is assembled, it can't be taken apart and won't fit into original shipping carton to return. I carefully constructed a carton from the remaining empties and waited for a replacement. The "exchange" arrived partially assembled, missing parts, in a badly constructed carton with holes in it. Obviously Overstock had received this return, slapped a label on it, and sent it to me as the "exchange". This one was missing parts and also had a defective seat. I called to report this and ask for another to be shipped, while I tried to deal with repacking and improving the crummy packaging. Another arrived, in original carton, again with a defective seat. Overstock Shipping wanted to refund my money and leave me with 3/4 of the stools I needed. This is unacceptable, either the three I have are going back, or the 4th had better be good this time. Customer Service folks have been helpful, but Overstock Shipping lacks Quality Control, as they ship out badly packed defective merchandise returns as exchanges. I've had a 100% defective rate on ONE STOOL, or a 50% defective on the 6 I have now ordered, 3 repackaged and returned. And I still don't have the FOUR STOOLS I need. Not worth the trouble, poor quality and pretty poor service.

What an awesome price for a barstool. I ordered four for my bar area. This is definitely not a top quality solid barstool but what do you expect for the price? Was not the easiest to assemble as the screws that it came with needed to thread through a small hole in the fabric and hard to line up the screw to the unseen slot. But the few minutes of frustration was worth it as again, you can't beat the price. Not the most solid feel to the barstool and I would be very careful having anyone over two hundred fifty pounds sitting on one. That said, I still ordered one more for my bar area so I can sit on one while serving drinks and chatting with friends.

These counter stools were just what we wanted for a small area with not much space. They are sturdy and made well; however, we ordered the oak and were very disappointed with the color. They did not go in our oak kitchen at all. The stain is more like a fifties maple--very reddish. The seats also had 4 cheap-looking stained-on accents that I guess were supposed to make it look distressed. It distressed us, so we decided to sand the seats back to the natural wood and leave the legs as they were. The natural wood is very nice looking and the "distressed" look is gone. They look much better, but most people won't want to do this amount of work on a new product. We just didn't want to pay for shipping them back...more time than money. If you're going to buy these, go with the black or white.

These stools arrived so quick! Good quality and very sturdy. They are simple and just what I was looking for. They are a great height for the high counter in the kitchen and at about $50 a piece you can't go wrong!!
