The height of 30" is without any weight on it. When you sit down, it compresses by about 2", making it too small for our needs. However, Overstock stood by it and made the transaction work out fine. 2 stars for the stool, 5 stars for Overstock's customer service.
These are great bar stools with a very low profile, which is what I needed in my small space. And they are REALLY comfortable. I also bought a more traditional looking bar stool with a round leather seat (no back) that turned out to be not comfortable. The very slight lip on the back makes it much easier to sit in. These are very stylish and I would highly recommend them! Definitely follow the directions of the other reviewers and buy different bolts. It was very easy to switch them out and the stools only took about 5 minutes to put together.
My friend purchased similar stools on Overstock that were more expensive than these. I purchased these because I like the way hers looked. The only difference I've noticed is that hers seem a little more stable than mine. For example, when my kids were climbing up to sit on the stools, the stools at her house seemed to wiggle less than mine do. However, the appearance looks exactly the same, and I would probably have no issue if I had not seen the stability of her stools. In any event, my 4-year-old and 7-year-old can climb up with no difficulty, they are comfortable for me and my husband, and they are very attractive looking - overall, a good find.
