We love our chairs and get many compliments. The issue is in the quality of the piece parts upon arrival. There were many issues with cracked wood, missing hardware and other component quality, however Overstock and the originating warehouse promptly replaced not the damaged parts but with an entire new chair. Overall to get four chairs in good condition, we had six shipped to us. Overstock not wanting the extra parts back we now have replacement parts if ever needed. I would purchase them all over again.
These chairs looks great! Although I gave it a rating of EXCELLENT, there is a problem with the parts (the rungs of the chairs). When you put them together, the rails/rungs do not fit snug within the provided slot. No matter how many times I took the chair apart, the fit was the same. This needs to be corrected IMMEDIATELY! I did not want to send the chairs back, because they are beautiful chairs ---with a problem in the workmanship. If you purchase these chairs, I would recommend using wood glue.
I have a large island/kitchen and was worried about finding a nice stool that was simple yet elegant and bold enough to fit into the decor. They fit in perfectly. I don't think I could have chosen a better stool. They are a little cumbersome to put together but just follow the directions and it should be fine. Enjoy your purchase.
Comfortable stools but the instructions were poor and obviously they knew there was a problem with how the stools are constructed because the most detailed instructions were how to make them stop rocking. Which they still do. Also, there was some kind of patching compound caked in the screw holes.
