The stools are comfortable and a perfect height for our huge kitchen island.. They actually swivel which is a bonus - It's not a feature mentioned in the Overstock description. Generally, we like the chairs and they are well made, but would have preferred less chrome decor. The photo on line does not allow you to see the back and side of the chair which actually has too much chrome banding - especially if you will have 3 chairs in a row at the counter. However, since it's tough to find modern swivel counterstools without that round support at the floor (which is a dirt magnet), we are happy to find these reasonably priced chairs that mostly fit our criteria..
