Summary 1st: Love the quality & sturdiness, great price, height & style was perfect for our bar, and LOVED the fact that I didn't need to assemble 1st.
Now the Details: I was ready to hit the roads to search for barstools at brick & mortar stores, when on a whim, I checked overstock.com. I saw other reviews on the Beidermier Barstool and since it was the exact style and look I was hoping for (dark wood, back, deep & black seat), I decided to take a chance. I placed an order for 4 of the barstools, in walnut. They arrived in 2 days (*wow*!). I opened one and though I loved everything about it - height, quality, seating comfort, etc. --- the color was a little off. No problem with the color itself - I loved it - but when I put it up the the bar, it didn't quite mesh with the granite & cabinets. *sigh*. I recalled reading a review saying the medium oak color had been too dark, so decided to take a chance. Ordered 1 barstool in the medium oak & it was perfect. Yes, it is definitely dark & I would never have thought to call it medium oak, but it was lighter than the walnut and the extra color in this wood was just right for us. I promptly placed an order for 3 more.
The down-side is solely my doing & a risk I accept with on-line shopping: had to repack the 1st walnut barstool & then return all 4, eating the return shipping cost (forutnately, the original $2.95 charge was the same as free). I will say the whole return process with overstock.com is painless and return shipping cost was reasonable, I thought. The lesson I learned is next time I order something like this, order just ONE to start - try it out, then order the rest of it works.
Net: I love these barstools & am delighted with the overstock.com experience.
Couldn't be happier with our bar stools - we also purchased 12 dining chairs - the table with chairs are next to the bar stools in our kitchen. We have wanted to having matching chairs for 30+ years - just wish we hadn't waited so long - now the kitchen and adjacent eating area actually look like they belong in the same home!

I received these today and I couldn't wait to post my review. They came completely assembled and in perfect condition, even though the delivery company was exactly easy on them. I purchased the walnut, even after some posting saying they were darker than expected. They are exactly what I expect for walnut, it is dark. My bar ended up being higher than standard (about 44 inches) and these work perfectly since they are closer to 32 inches. They look beautiful in the house! Great look and quality at a very low price.
i have to say that as soon as i saw these, i wanted them. i ordered one to make sure it was going to work for my house, and as soon as i unwrapped it, sat in it, and fit it under my kitchen island, i ordered 2 more. nice deep, wide seat. i was somewhat concerned about the fake leather, but it looks seriously nice. easier to care for then real leather, especially with kids. doesn't seem tippy at all- very sturdy. no assembly! fast shipping!
I have to admit, I was hesitant to buy furniture on line. I bought 1 bar stool at first to insure the quality was there and that the color matched the bar (easier to send 1 stool back than 4). Stool arrived 3 days after ordering & was packed nicely. I was happily surprised at how heavy & sturdy the stool was. Took it down to the bar & it looked great. Got back on line & ordered 3 more with the same results.
Wow! My husband and I searched all over town and on the internet for 3 beautiful, sturdy barstools and bought these after reading the awesome reviews. We are both so pleased with and highly recommend them. Thanks, Overstock.com :-)
I am opening my new lounge in 2 weeks. I needed 12 gorgeous but affordable bar stools. I looked at literally hundreds if not over a thousand bar stools. I took a chance on these and they are perfection! The color matches the bar top which is a huge plus. I wanted the total package, good looks and comfort and affordable. These are all of those! I will be ordering more very soon!!

Is the material really microfiber? The same stool as a counter stool is leather. I would think they should be the same material.suetv on Jul 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello suetv, They are not the same since the barstools are 2 different finishes and different upholstery. This one is a microfiber with a leather like look. Thank you for shopping with us.
