I absolutely love the look of these stools! They are big which is fine for the space I have them. I was a little worried about purchasing because of some of the other reviews saying the wood seats split. I bought them anyway because I really liked them and most of the reviews were good. The wood seats are a little rough. One of the seats did split already so I was a little disappointed. Over all they are great to look at but maybe not the best for use.
Very sturdy. I was going for country farmhouse, but I must say these are little bit on the country cowboy side for me. No one really notices it till I pointed out, so I stopped doing that of course. They're bigger than what they look so if you have a lot of heavy people coming over there great for that. Once again I feel like I got a really good deal from overstock, because the ones in the store are made very cheap.
I LOVE these stools. The metal base is sturdy and attractive. The seats are wide and comfortable. The caveat... the wood is very low quality. I ordered 4 stools and 3 of the 4 seats were completely split down the middle. Customer service was great and they sent me 3 replacement seats. However, 2 of the 3 replacement seats were damaged. Customer service has been great again and they are sending me 2 more replacement seats. I recommend these chairs if you can stand the frustration of replacing any damaged seats. I will probably buy some higher quality wood in the future and replace all of the seats.
I bought these from Overstock before I had seen them anywhere. They are heavy, sturdily built and perfect sitting next to myFrench Country island. Now, I see them, everywhere, not the quality of mine, but I did like having something different. Kids love them because the seat spins around to adjust the height. These are by far the nicest stools of this style I have seen.
I am in love with these stools. I bought 3 of them for a tall bar- it is hard to find stools this tall. Pros: 1. Versatility: I like that they are versatile and easily change size and if we move to a house with a different size bar we don't have to buy new barstools. 2. Large seat accommodates various size backsides! They are very sturdy too ;) 3. When you roll it all the way up it stops, rather than continuing and having the top of the stool fall off. Anyone with kids can appreciate this feature. 4. Comes pre-assembled. woo hoo! I hate when you get a piece of furniture in tiny pieces you have to have a degree in engineering to assemble and stools can be especially difficult to get them to balance right. 5. It can go with many different kinds of decor. I have it in a modern farmhouse style room. I think it would go with farmhouse, french country, rustic, industrial, vintage, western and its trendy enough now to go with modern style. It is neutral enough to fit in with all these different styles but has enough unique detail to be interesting. 6. Customer service! One of mine arrived with a significant dent probably during shipping since there was a hole in the box and I contacted them and they took care of everything right away. They were amazing. 7. Price- these are very popular right now the price is very good for this item. Cons: 1. The tops are rough enough to pull at delicate fabrics in clothing. They are rustic if you like the unfinished look this is something you can expect to deal with. They are finished a little bit it's not raw wood. 2. Because they are adjustable they are constantly at different sizes and if you are OCD (like someone who has to itemize their customer review) this can drive you a little nuts! My solution is to keep them either all the way rolled up or all the way rolled down so they are even. 3. One squeaks a little when it rolls easy DIY fix. Overall I am very happy with these stools and would recommend them as a good product.
These arrived fully assembled, in perfect condition. Like others said, the tops seem like the only possible fragile part, but could easily be replaced. The base and step portion are very sturdy and well-made. I think these will stand up to the abuse of our pre-teen son and his friends better than our previous stools.
