I don't write many reviews. But I felt like I needed to on these stools after reading some of the negative comments, because they almost scared me away from ordering these, and I'm so glad they didn't. These stools deserve 5 stars. They are georgeous and very high quality. My husband always complains when I order furniture offline because he is very paticular about quality and is always scared it will be cheaply made. But even he agrees these are very nice. Very very well made! Much sturdier than any I've seen in even high end furnitire stores where we live. And far more stylish than any I had found. They do take some time and patients to assemble but it is not at all difficult or labor intensive as another review implied. You don't need a drill, just a simple screw driver works great. I put together 4 myself and it prob took about 2 hours. Like I said not hard, just a lot of screws! And well worth it in the end!!!! Also read reviews that said instructions were hard to understand. Personly I thought they were very clear. There are no words, only pictures, but to me that is better. Im a visual person, and it shows you step by step what to do. if you like the looks of these stools online you will love them even more in person! Please dont let other reviews scare you away. These stools are great! I LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the look and style of the chairs. They are very elegant & classy with great nail head details. They match my white and stainless steel kitchen to perfection. The only 2 negative comments I have are the directions and the angle of the screws. Their aren't any written directions only pictures which are very small. There is a lot of hardware and trying to look at the small pictures and match up the hardware to make sure you are using the screws and L - Joints in the right places made it frustrating to put together. All of the screws go in at an almost impossible angle which meant I had to screw & unscrew the legs and chair cushions several times. The product is excellent but the assembly is frustrating. Patience is key when putting this product together.

The chairs look really nice and they were not that hard to assemble once I got the first completed. The scfrews are very near the same length but they are not interchangeable so line them up before you start. The directions are not that specific. It would be better to have 2 people to put them together but I managed by myself with a few contortions. Use a power screw driver as the small tool that comes with the chairs does not tighten fully unless you are extremely strong.
These chairs are a great value and look very modern. Took a little while to get everything together, but not hard at all. Make sure to use all hardware. These chairs come with stabilizing "L" brackets that will definitely make the chairs feel a lot more study. They look awesome at our bar.
Received (4) bar stools they were tough putting together for my boyfriend but, he finished and found out they were too high for my 36" high table. I liked the chairs so he cut 3 inches off them. (He is handy and patient) These are more for a Bar. They look awesome are very comfortable and look as if I paid a lot more than I did.
These chairs are nice but one was not straight when we assembled it and Overstock refunded me the price of one.

I purchased this set for my studio which is an open workspace. These chairs were a bit complex (for me) to put together but they look fantastic. They are comfortable & sturdy. I would have given 5 stars but the material was bunched on one side of each chair from shipping-which after some massaging did eventually smooth out-it's hardly noticeable now.
These chairs look great and actually are pretty solid after put together. That is the only reason they are getting 2 stars. Problems that ensued with our order... 1.) first two boxes had damaged chairs in them 2.) after dealing with the hassle of sending them back for replacement, the replacements sent then also arrived, damaged. 3.) a screw was broken in one of the "good" boxes. Luckily my husband fixed it with something else to hold the chair together Love the look of these chairs- appalled at the quality control that has to be going on for this to happen with most items we order from overstock. Needless to say we have stopped
