I read a lot of reviews on this product that helped me make the leap to purchase a chair online without actually sitting in it. These chairs arrived faster than expected, no assembly required! Just pull 'em out of the box and sit down. Perfect for an open kitchen island type seating as the back is just a few inches above the counter height and since there are no arms it's easy to push them under the counter. Very comfortable to sit on, back is supportive and if you sit sideways on the chair the height of the back is perfect to lean your arm on. Leather appears to be of excellent quality, soft and well made. These chairs look beautiful and I would highly recommend them!

I am actually sitting on the stool as I am typing this review. I received two sets of stools by UPS yesterday and they are comfortable and very nice looking. I gave them 4 stars for the following reasons: 1) One of my stools has a musty smell to it. It's not overwhelming but I can smell it and It is not the smell of leather. 2) The legs are very dark but I would not say they are black. I do, however, like them very much and would recommend.
These chairs are high quality and very comfortable. Since the backs are slightly lower than many other chairs, it doesn't block the view of the counter. As mentioned in some other reviews, there is no foot rest protection on the front (stool) bar, but we can always put something on it ourselves. We are very pleased with the purchase, especially since there was no assembly required!

My family of 5 has used these stools every day for 5 months and they still look brand new. The quality is high, and the stools look great. We thought we wanted higher backs, but as it turns out the shorter backs keep our kitchen from being cut off from the rest of the room. Also, these stools are relatively lightweight, which I thought might be a problem. As it turns out, even our 5 year old can move her stool around without dragging it on the hardwood floors, which is a plus for us. Finally, we only needed 5 for our family, so I intended to sell one on ***. As it turns out, we have lots of dinner guests, so having one extra bar stool is ideal. They aren't so bulky that they take up extra space, and they are very comfortable. These stools are excellent value for the money.

These stools are every bit as great as the reviews say. They come fully assembled, are top notch quality, extremely comfortable, and very chic looking. I use them at my breakfast bar. They're a little taller than the ones they replaced, but that's not a big deal to me. They also don't push in as far as the ones they replaced because they're depth is greater. Just something to note. Check the measurements and make sure they'll work with your set up.

I've only had the stools in my kitchen for 4 weeks and they were subjected to light - moderate use. So far they are in still brand new condition. They look fabulous and very contemporary. Very comfortable and they are extremely functional for my kitchen island. Kitchen island height is normal counter height. Worth buying.

Wonderful set of chairs. Leather is smooth and supple, high quality finish. The wooden legs are a beautiful mahogany or dark chestnut that go well on wood floors. I specifically ordered this product because it had a lower seat back compared to other counter chairs, and it is described so that the chairs do not obstruct the view of our granite countertops. The construction is sturdy, and the product came completely assembled. Really great product.

While the two stools appeared exactly as I'd expected, I was concerned about a potentially serious defect in one leg. The manufacturer had attempted to correct the issue, but I wasn't convinced I could avoid a problem with frailty in one area. I immediately called OverStock, was handled with great courtesy and professionalism, and was provided a replacement.. I am now thoroughly delighted, not only with the product, but with Overstock.com!

I looked for over 1 month for a gift for my girlfriends kitchen and was specifically looking for a pair of black counter stools. When I pulled these out of the box, the leather is black, but the legs are brown. I feel this item is visually misrepresented and is not described in enough detail for someone like me who was looking for all black.I'll keep them because I am in a pinch, but had I known I would not have purchased. Oh, they also must have been very busy at Overstock because the shipping time was just average..10 days from the date of purchase.I am only recommending these based on full disclosure- hopefully this review lets the buyer know EXACTLY what they are getting.
These bar stools are well made and a good deal at the price. They are so comfortable I had to get more to fill out my bar, just really like the soft leather. They provide excellent support for my back and helps make the bar a good place to have a meal, read or entertain.
We bought 6 of these stools under 3 years ago for our island. The cushions/padding and legs are still in excellent condition but the leather seat area is in bad shape on 5 out of 6 of the stools. This must be either a bonded leather or a very thin cheap leather. All the seats (but not the backs or elsewhere) are cracked and 5 of them have areas where the leather has peeled/rubbed off. Such a nice looking stool but we are so disappointed in the leather. BTW, in case anyone is wondering -we are all small, light weight people using the stools.
These stools are fantastic! Great quality, beautiful simple design and just perfect for my counter height island. These had a low back which helped keep the sight line from the kitchen open and undisturbed, preserving the open concept look and feel. I highly recommend these stools to anyone looking for high quality and sleek design.
When we re-finished our kitchen in 2005 we purchased 4 of these wonderful counter stools. We had a "bonus "area where we used the old stools which we also purchased through Overstock. Recently the old stools became life-threatening hazards and we needed to replace them. Happily the Cosmopolitan stools were available, reasonably priced, and, after 9 years of use, are still remarkably consistent! We now have all matching stools and you can't really tell the old from the new! We are really happy with these comfortable, time-tested counter stools.
I don't often order furniture on line, without the benefit of seeing the piece in person first. The price was right & the reviews were good so took a chance. I was pleasantly surprised. The chairs are of good quality, comfortable and so far have held up very well since buying them 6 months ago. Would definitely recommend these.
