We were looking for four modern stools to use as overflow seating for a home theather. They'll be sitting at a 42" high bar table. These looked like they would be perfect, so we took a chance and ordered them from overstock even though there were relatively few reviews. We love them. The design is definitely modern, and they fit in very well in our setting. I was a bit concerned that they would look cheap, but they don't. The curves are fair, the veneer is reasonably good, the faux leather upholstery is actually very nice, and the stitching is good. The foam is firm, but comfortable. The stools are stable when you sit on them, although there is a little bit of play back and forth if you lean. The lift mechanism works well. It does compress about an inch when you sit on the stool, and then moves back into place when you stand up. The back is attached to the seat with a metal bracket, which has a little "give" to it, so that you can lean back a bit if you'd like to. The only complaint is that they are a bit narrower than I'd like (because the sides of the seat curve up, but they are certainly comfortable despite the 17" width. Shipping was actually very quick, considering we ordered these over the holidays. Packaging was good--nothing was damaged in shipment. Assembly was simple: just connect 4 bolts to attach the leg to the seat (make sure the leg support is facing the front of the chair), then connect 4 bolts to attach the back to the seat, and insert the leg into the base. We chose not to use the cheap looking escutcheons on the leg-to-base joint. It looks much better without them.
The chair is comfortable. I use it while working at a taller desk daily. Unfortunately, in less than 2 months, the gas lift/shock is leaking and slowly lowers itself. I have contacted the manufacture, but they refuse to replace the bad parts or product. If you are looking for a visual piece or chair that is rarely used, it is comfortable. If you plan on using it though, I'd keep looking.
The quality of the chair is very good. the seating part is very soft and the metal part is very sturdy. The only complains is the wood part. IT DOES NOT look as what I expected at all!! First is the color, from the photo, it looks to me it is more of orange modern looking color, while the real product, it is very dark, more like walnut color. not as pretty and modern looking as what in the photo. Second, the wood texture. From the photo it is not showing clearly but the real product has quite strong of wood texture which I do not like it. It does not look modern and good for a chair design like this. Modern design plush the old wood texture make the chair looks very weird. Third is the connecting part between the wood and metal part. It is not show in the photo but it looks really really ugly!!! From the front the chair looks really really stylish and modern, but from the back... the wood texture, and the ugly connection pieces make me almost return it. From the quality wise, the chair is really good. But hope online it is showing the back of the chair, I don't think I will buy it if I see it. But since I already got it, nothing wrong, but just the design, so still will keep it. But just be aware, back of the chair does not look as good as the front as you can see from the photo
Very sleek, looks just like the images posted. One thing, there's an ugly metal joint that screws into the upright wooden back of the seat. They don't show it in the images, but it disrupts the fluidity of the wood grain. It's about 3" wide and 6"long. It shouldn't dissuade you from purchasing the chair, but something you might want to consider.
After a depressing day stool shopping and finding every stool I liked to be $400 plus, I thought I would take a chance and order one of these to see if at least it would suffice until I auctioned a kidney or sold a child... What a great surprise! Easily as solid and substantial looking as the more expensive model I found...just as comfy (yes ...pleather ....but soft to touch and not plastic in feel). Best testament to purchase is that I just ordered 3 more!
I received my Bar Stool I was so happy since I have had some bad delivers come in twice with Overstock, well the chair was not hard to assemble since it was half way done, the part that upset me was the lift on the chair did not work, I KEEP giving the company a chance because I read the reviews, and I keep TRYING TO GET THIS RIGHT!! Well my lift doesn't work on the chair and this just sucks. I will call customer service who is always great with helping!
We ordered 4 of them from Overstock, and they all arrived SUPER fast, and in perfect condition. They offer the mid century modern look that we love, but were at a price point that we could live with. We have had numerous social gatherings since we bought them, and they are a hit! Everyone LOVES them as they are quite an impressive bar stool. They are an extremely comfortable bar stool, and I have overheard several persnickety people comment on that when they sat in them. Again, various sized people have sat in these, and they were equally comfortable for all. We had read a review that they are 'narrow', and that kind of scared us, but we took a chance anyway and ordered them. We are so glad we did since they are NOT narrow, and are really quite roomy. They are easy to keep clean, and the chrome shines up very nicely with a little spay cleaner and a soft towel. Greasy hand prints really show up on the black padded section, which I like since it reminds me to give them a quick wipe after kids have sat in them :) We love Overstock, and are constantly finding amazing pieces for our mid century modern decor, pieces that we would never find in stores in our area.
We just got these and so far we love them. They look really nice, are very stylish and mostly comfortable. However, the parts don't all fit together like they should. The plate underneath overlapped another component so it tilts the seat forward at a slight angle but not enough to bother with returns and reordering. We needed 4 of them and had to return a couple on two other orders from other vendors so we were very happy that Overtock.com had all of them in stock. I would recommend them.
I needed an adjustable chair for my lab and one that was quick and easy to sit on and to get off. This one was stylish, very easy to assemble (5 minutes or less) and very comfortable. I love it and everyone that I work with does well! I wish I had bought two.

I love these stools that are adjustable for either bar or counter height or anything in between. This was important to me since I am short and fixed height stools leave me wishing for a booster seat! I have been looking for a couple of years now for good quality and features that would work in my space, I am happy that i waited for these stools.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exactly
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality for the money. I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg per stool. These were a perfect compromise because of the Faux leather and wood.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The discription was acuurate.
Since I am a photographer and I do portfolio albums for people who tend to follow a stage career I need stools as decoration and accessories for my shooting sessions. These as well as some other overstock products are one of my choices. Particularly this model is my favorite, but my customers also love it.
These are the most comfortable bar stools ever. The unique design looks amazing but the dense foam padding on the seat and in the backrest give us the comfort to enjoy a good glass of beer with our friends. The quality is top, shipping was fast and the price is more than affordable. I recommend these stools to everyone searching for great look, quality and comfort.
I ordered two bar stools as an anniversary gift for my husband. After developing a game room in the basement he was searching for some great stools to enjoy a great time with his buddy. These stools looked so fine that I ordered it. It was a great decision. These stools are comfortable and durable, really solid and easy to adjust. The best present so far.
