We shopped around our local furniture stores for 4 counter stools for our kitchen island. I sat on many very nice stools but most delivery times were 4 -6 weeks. We wanted something quicker but they still needed to be high quality. We found these on Overstock and were a little worried about making the purchase because we couldn't actually sit in them. The reviews were mixed but mostly positive so we took a chance. Glad we did because they look gorgeous in our kitchen. They seem very solid which was very important to me. I've read different comments about the color of the legs. The leather is dark brown, as shown, and the legs on my stools are a mahogany or dark cherry stain. They look very good and couldn't be happier.
After checking out a lot of stores for counter height stools, I came across these here. Boy, am I glad that I did. They came assembled and are perfect for our needs. I like the lower back and find them very comfortable. I sit on one and usually end up with my feet up on one of the others while surfing the internet at the island. (We purchased one set and then ordered another after liking them so much!) They are so much nicer than the typical metal chairs with high backs. These stools are probably my favorite part of my new kitchen remodel. My only con is that they do seem to have made some light scratches on my wood floor and the felt we put underneath does not seem to be staying on too well. Will have to find another way to secure them so that we don't end up with more scratches. Other than that, highly recommend. Gorgeous dark color and nice material, too.
These chairs were packed so well (2 to a box) and the legs were all wrapped with protective coverings. Leather is high quality and a beautiful chocolate brown. I am really picky and these chairs were everything I was hoping to find. Also, the back is high enough to give nice lumbar support, but yet they have enough of a low profile so as to not stick up over the island and be an eye sore. Highly recommend these you will not be disappointed!
These stools are great. I was initially skeptical of buying furniture online, especially when they aren't that cheap, however the reviews were extremely helpful in giving me confidence. These are the perfect height for my 36 inch high kitchen island. The quality of the leather is exactly what I expected and there were no surprises. Highly recommended and, given other stools I've seen while shopping around, a pretty good value.
I bought these counter stools aobut a month ago for my kitchen island. Can I tell you how much I love these chairs! They look very expensive and the workmanship and appearance surpasses what I paid for them. They definitely make a statement in my kitchen and the leather is soft and supple. The chairs are sturdy and the seat is wide. They sell out quickly, as I had to put my name on a wait list to receive a reminder when they were in stock again. I have the brown leather stools. If you want them, get them, you won't be disappointed...and you will love them like I do.P.S. They come already assembled and they were packaged well.
I've had my stools for about a month now and I find that they're really comfortable to sit in. The height is perfect and the color is exactly what I was looking for, a chocolate brown.One thing I would have liked was a bit more heft to them. They are very light weight and I'm not sure if they will last a long time. We shall see.
I bought these for a kitchen island and they are great. What I like about them are the following:1. Lightweight (so you can move them in and out easily)2. Low backs -- they visually look nice and not obtrusive'3. Quality -- leather is very nice quality, and easy to clean.Only thing I was concerned about is that they are a little "deep" in the seat (we have 12" under counter, so they cannot be pushed flush against counter) -- but its only a couple of inches and everything else about them is great.Overall very pleased and going to order another set!
I was real nervous about ordering furniture on-line. The posted reviews here helped me make the decision to go ahead and I was not disappointed. Ordered barstools on the weekend and received delivery on Wednesday. Product was well-packed and arrived with no scratches or dents, the best part of it all is that it is fully assembled and ready to be used in my newly remodeled kitchen. We loved the bar stools and its price as compared to ones found in brick and mortar stores discount as well as higher end.The things we like about them are : 1) the design of the lower back which is almost flushed with my island counter top, 2) material is leather not vinyl, not bicast, 3) comfortable and well cushioned, 4) small and light to fit well in space. The only downside is the color of the wood legs when the sun is shining on it has a red tinge. Otherwise the color is a perfect dark brown. Hope this helps you visualize the bar stools. Thank you Overstock!
I am very pleased with this purchase. I like the low profile of the seat back, it is a comfortable stool to sit on and the leather is a pretty brown. I wish the seat height were just a LITTLE lower, like 24 or 25" but I knew when ordering that the seat height was 26" and it is working for us. Delivery was very fast.
These stools are great! I received free shipping plus 10% off with an Overstock e-coupon. One of the stools was damaged in shipping and Overstock promptly sent me a replacement chair without a problem. Excellent customer service team. The chairs are easy to keep clean-I just wipe them off every day. Another review mentioned foot rest protectors. I was not aware of this option and would be interested as well. I do worry that the wood will get damaged over time. Also, it's too soon to tell but the joints on the legs may loosen over time. I will fix with wood glue if this happens. It would not prevent me from purchasing these stools again. My children love to sit at the counter and I don't have to worry about my 2 year old falling backwards off the low-back seat. The chairs are very stable and comfortable.
I bought 4 of these for around my kitchen island, primarily because they were low-back. They sit about one-inch above the 36" counter height, so the backs of the chairs don't obstruct the island. The chairs are comfortable, we got used to the low-back. The seats are deep which is great for my 6' husband, but not for 5'3" me so I plan to make some pillows in dark brown suede with a strap around them to fit around the back for us shorter people. Construction is good; there are little 'crinkles' in the roll-back part of the back cushion - in other words, not completely smooth so just be forewarned and aware. Price is good and it's hard to find low-back counter stools. Well-packaged and no damage. Overall, I am pleased and would recommend them to a friend.
My 6'4'' husband and I were worried that he would be unable to fit his legs under our counter with the stools. I was mostly worried about the quality of the leather. When they arrived, we were both very pleasantly surprised, the color, the quality, the plushness of the leather. He was even pleased at the fact that the backs weren't too high for the countertop. Everything was wonderful, my parents are even about to order some for their home that is being remodeled. Love 'em, love' em, love' em!
These are a great addition to my home. I recently remodeled my kitchen and these compliment it completely. They arrived in a big box and were fully assembled. The construction feels very sturdy. Be aware that leg caps are also located in the box. I almost threw them out by mistake.
I would give these 6 stars for looks and comfort. However we've has them for a week and one of them has a pretty large scratch mark right down the middle of the backrest. Most likely from one of my kids pulling themselves up. I'm guessing based on wear and tear in the first week, these aren't going to make it in our rough and tumble kid friendly kitchen.
