I had the stools one day and they broke. Came apart from the preassembled screws. A clear design flaw and had to go through unassembling them and then returning them.

Love this stool. It is very comfortable. Looks great! Just remodeled our kitchen which has a small desk area attached to the cabinets and this was the finishing touch. The only thing is that I would have preferred the studs on the set portion to have been a silver tone instead of a antique gold tone; however, my new granite counter tops did have some of this color in them so this blended very nicely. It's very comfortable as well.
I ordered 4 of these. Some were easier to put together than others. One actually needed new holes drilled for the bolts to match up both holes. Fortunately I have battery power drill with multiple bits, so it wasn't too big of a deal. They were an excellent price, though, so I would probably by again. Everything else was as advertised.
I bought 2 of these stools and never bothered to open the box on the second one. The chair back was made out of particle board and looked terrible! The rest of the stool was actually very nice...the leather cushion was very impressive. Also, the screws were just thrown into the box or had fallen out of the packaging during shipment. I returned these. The cheap back on this chair would easily be broken within a month or less. Overstock was very helpful with the return.
The quality of the finished product is great. The stool is sturdy, and the cushion is surprisingly durable. The HUGE pitfall for this product, however, are the instructions and the packaged tools. Chances are that when you open up the box, the bolts and washers will have escaped from the cheap packaging, forcing you to hunt around the floor and boxes to complete the inventory. The bolts on the instruction manual don't match the labeling on the packaging, causing you a headache if you strictly followed the assembly instructions only to find that the screws for the chair backing don't fit. That is UNTIL you figure out that you have that "screw #2" is actually "screw #4" and "washer 5" is actually "washer 7," etc. If you have patience and are OCD enough to inventory everything BEFORE you start building, buy this stool. By the way, the first one I put together took me 3 hours with the whole mismatch blunder, and the second chair took 20 minutes.
