I just love my new stools. They came promptly in one carton and were carefully wrapped in foam sheeting to protect the legs. My engineer husband was impressed with the quality of the construction and the included screw drived and allen wrench. They went together easily and look very nice. The seat is very roomy and comfortable. The color and quality of the leather seat is very good. I am quite picky and they are without defects of anything to complaint about. I would not hesitate to recommend these stools to anyone.

I ordered the Counter stools and the Bar stools. All stools came with hardware and screw drivers, everything I though I would need to assemble them. The Counter stools were just fine. Unfortunately with the Bar height stools the screws for the side rails that the manufacturer supplied were too short. I tried to bore out the pre-drilled screw holes but that did not work well, so I had to go to the hardware store and buy new longer wood screws. These penetrated all the way through the side rail to the leg, cracking the finish of the leg. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO A FRIEND. Even though these bar stools seem like a good deal online they are not worth the hassle.
We had been looking for stools at the kitchen bar for months. Finally decided on these. They are a good color (off-white) and simple lines. Comfort is good and assembly was easy, once we figured out that the bottom fabric is attached with Velcro. We would LOVE them if the footrest had a chrome protector.
These ivory bar height bar stools look great--just as pictured. The ivory color blends well with the white trim we have which is quite white. They are quite firm, but not hard and either have softened slightly with a week's use, or we've just become used to them. Because we have wood floors, we removed the hard plastic dome at the bottom of each leg (it just lifts off with a flat screwdriver or knife blade), and replaced each with thick felt stick-on pads. It would have been nice if optional felt pads had been included for the many customers with hardwood flooring since I think the other would leave a mark. Otherwise a great stool.
I originally ordered two sets of these stools. The first pair was perfect. The second set was not (wood screw holes not lined up so that the seat could be securely attached to the legs). I ordered a third set and had to mix and match to get another perfect duo. These stools are quite handsome and were beautifully packaged. Assembly was not difficult...everything needed for assembly, including the wrench and screw driver, was provided. Overstock made return of the defective merchandise easy. I whined a bit to myself about having to disassemble the defective stools for return but in the end, the effort was worth it. I really am happy with my purchase and the price was great.
I've owned these stools for 1.5 years now and still love them! Very easy to put together and very sturdy. Color is slightly off white, but not cream. The seats are firm and comfortable. After a year and a half they are still in great shape, no dents in the seats from wear.
