Really great stools. They get softer with wear and really create a focal point in the kitchen. Follow the assembly instructions and don't fully tighten the screws holding the seat onto the legs until AFTER you've inserted the small bars that give the stools their stability, just have them barely screwed onto the thread and this will give you the "wiggle" room you need to get the bars in place. Solid construction and great value for money!

We put these bar stools together last night. Though the directions are NOT so good, the bar stools are very nice. We intend to order more. They were also really well packaged and arrived quickly. Be careful when assembling to check that the side rails are correct. The directions do not specify, but there is a "front" and "back" to the rails - it is easy not to notice (the difference between front and back is sublte) until you are on the last step. It is necessary to take the entire chair apart to correct this.

I have been trying to locate bar stools that would be high quality and match my kitchen cabinetry. After shopping all of the local furniture stores, Pier 1, PB and others, I ordered these stools not expecting them to work out. They are very high quality. Assembly can be challenging for a novice, but they went together easily and without a hitch. I love them. They are comfortable, sturdy and have some weight to them. I just ordered another pair to fill my quota! Would recommend these to any purchaser.

Stools look nice but lack support/padding in both the seat and the back. I am 5'10" ,190 lbs and I feel like I'm sitting in a box. The frame can be felt around me. I bought these because they were the closest I could find to match my kitchen table chairs which I bought years ago from Fortunoff which are made much better. I am going to keep them only because they won't be used that much and that they came in a huge box that I don't want to wrestle again.
These chairs are a good value, comfortable, look nice, and fit the space in front of the bar perfectly. You won't be disappointed.

My husband just spend 2.5 hours putting 4 of these chairs together, complaining the entire time about how poor quality they were and how all the screws were stripped and it was very difficult to put together. He's handy and normally doesn't have trouble with stuff like this. Once he got them all together, we realized they are BAR height and not kitchen COUNTER height so they look really goofy but they were such a tremendous hassle to put together, he doesn't want to spend another couple hours taking them apart to send back. They are also really unsturdy, wobbling all over the place which will be awful since I have little kids. Very unhappy with this purchase on multiple levels. We normally love Overstock but this purchase was a giant fail.
I consulted the reviews on these stools prior to purchase. I would agree with many of the positive points made. The stools are of very high quality, they are comfortable to sit in and "dress up" a room. I would add that my family of all different ages has enjoyed them. I like the velcro underneath where you can easily remove and replace when adjusting the chairs as needed. I would also agree with many of the negative points made. These stools have a low back, which doesn't really impact comfort as much as look - they just don't look quite right at the bar based on the back height. I somewhat agree that they were easy to put together - I think the directions that are included are terrible, and it's a bit of "trial and error" to make sure everything matches up correctly. I was particularly challenged by getting the screws to line up in the holes which involved screwing and unscrewing several times to make sure they all match (referring to attaching the legs to the seat base underneath, and also found that the support bars that join the front legs to the back legs are not exactly measured - they don't fit tightly and the screw holes are not pre-drilled which means you'll likely see a gap in these support bars. Once you get the first one figured out the rest are put together quickly. I think they are either a custom size or just slightly too small for a bar area; I'm fortunate that most of us are tall but shorter adults and children will be reaching upward, so make sure you measure appropriately and check the specifications.
got these for my new Kitchen remodel. shipped with perfect timing, easy to put together, instructions very clear. they are beautiful and exactly as shown in picture. very comfortable I WFH and now sit at the counter top in these chairs all day. Love them great price great quality. would recommend to anyone needing bar stools. I purchased leather dining chairs from same vendor/Overstock a couple years ago and they match perfectly
I chose these because they had great reviews, and the look was exactly what I wanted. Dark wood, thick leather seats. The shipment arrived and had a damaged piece. Overstock.com was contacted through an online process and got back to me immediately saying that they were shipping a new package immediately, which was nice. So I got to mix and match to pick the best pieces. They were simple to assemble, minus the last step where screws had to go between the lower bars and the legs- it was a tricky maneuver that could be revised in my opinion. The quality is average. I thought for the price they would be a bit nicer. They are sturdy, but the quality of the wood does not seem that great. Seems like it may be scratched easily, and some pieces (luckily i got to mix and match) were not up to par. Unfortunately I have a HUGE box to lug to the ups store now to return. Overall, if you want this LOOK , i couldn't find anything cheaper- plus i got on sale which took a little off.
I like them very much. I wish they sell them also individually, because I actually need it only 3. They are very beautiful.

These chairs work well for our bar height dining table. They get minimal use by two adults so I am hoping they hold up well. The clean lines were just what I was looking for and they are comfortable as well as sturdy. I would have ranked these a five except for the slight gaps between the leg joints and foot rails.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was just as described.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is pretty good but I am picky about the joints being perfectly flush with no gaps. These don't go together perfectly but they are sturdy.

The Bar Stools are very sturdy and an excellent value compared to what you would get at a furniture store for the same price. I originally purchased two and put them together to test the chairs. The directions are straightforward but on all of the stools (i purchased an additional 2) there is always one hole that is difficult to place the bolts and can be frustrating. Otherwise these chairs are excellent and very sturdy.
I ordered stools about a year now, wanted to be sure they stood up well before writing a good review, I can say I am very pleased with the look, color and how well they've stayed together, seeing as we have several rowdy children. I would recommend this product.
Very pleased with the look and feel of these chairs. The seats are somewhat firm but soften with use. We like that the seatbacks only peek over the kitchen bar and do not obstruct our open floor plan view. After the first assembly it was easy. I used a helper on the first and then was able to assemble the rest on my own. My only critique is the side rungs on the bottom are a little loose and have some play. Great look and couldn't come close to this elsewhere for the price.
