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.
We bought these stools for our new home. It is contemporary, and they fit right in. We sit in them every day and find them to be quite comfortable. Sure, there are more comfortable seating options out there, but for the price, those stools are exactly what I expected. They are sturdy and came assembled. 2 plusses in my book!
I have had these stools for almost four years and always get compliments on them. They're stylish and very comfortable. Be aware that the leather is not the highest quality, which isn't unexpected given the price. I have two cats, and after numerous jumps off of the stools over the years there are scratches on the leather. I have a high quality leather sofa, and there are no scratches or marks anywhere on the sofa, so I attribute the scratches on the stool leather to a low quality leather.
I purchased 6 of these chairs after seeing a friend's. They arrived within days and I was amazed at how well they were protected for shipment. I do plan to purchase felt pads for the feet to protect my wood floor but they seem to be well made and will look great around my new island. I will "re-rate" them in a year to see how well they hold up -- hoping to give all "Excellents" at that time!
