I use these reviews before I buy anything big online so I will do my best to tell you the truth. These stools are great product for the money spent. They are easy to assemble. They are very comfortable and sturdy enough to hold my 200 lb husband easily. I have had two parties since their arrival and got many compliments on them. My only negative thought is that I wish the seats and back cushions were real leather instead of vinyl but not surprising for the good price.

Since we live on a lake, these barstools reminded us of a boat seat. We ordered one first to check out the quality, then ordered 7 more. They arrived in perfect condition and for the price, we couldn't beat it anywhere! My husband likes that the foot rest goes completely around the stool and that they are adjustable for different heights of people. Can accomodate a large man and the seat material is vinyl and perfect for a wet swimsuit rather than wood. They look beautiful around our horseshoe shaped bar.

The stools are good looking and will definitely provide some style to any decor. However, the stools are light weight and while they are somewhat flimsy, they are still comfortable but I would have preferred heavier stools. Nevertheless, for the money it is an excellent deal.

These stools are very nice-looking and add a nice mid-century like style to our pool table room. They were easy to assemble and feel fairly sturdy. The lift mechanism works well. The only complaint I have is that the brown vinyl is kind of cheap-looking and both chairs arrived with some scratches on the bent wood. They are both scratched in the same location, on the inside right (if looking towards the front of the chair) on the bottom piece of wood, just under the rivets. It must be a manufacturing or packing issue since they are both scratched in the same way (circular pattern) in the same location. But the scratches are fairly inconspicuous since they are on the inside of the chair near the seat cushion, so it would not have been worth it to try to repackage them and return them. If they had been scratched on the outside I would have been more upset. Overall, we love the look of the chairs.

Great design....only minor flaw is that the foot rest rotates with you so you cant use it as leverage to swing around. But for the price and the look....great buy!! I get many many compliments on them ( I have a set of 3) and people askme where I got them all the time! I tell them some expensive place first but then I say Overstock...haha.
These are a killer deal. They look much more expensive that they are and are easy to sit on for quite awhile. My only complaint is the wood is starting to split in some very small places. I'm not sure it's a forever piece, but we're enjoying it in the meantime!
Ordered 3 of these Barstools which just arrived yesterday. These meet the criteria of "you get what you pay for." The cushions on all three are very loosely upholstered, giving a wrinkled appearance. There is not much foam in the base seat cushion and it's stapled underneath the seat bottom. Very simple to put together [took about 10 minutes apiece] and the stand is a nice metal, not plastic like some products out there. The "bentwood" portion has many flaws: scratches, dents, etc. These are minor, but definitely visible. Style is very nice. We have Elite barstools in our kitchen/main living area, so we're spoiled. Basically got three of these for less than the price of one Elite. They're in the basement wet bar/ man-cave, so we didn't need or want to spend a fortune. I recommend these barstools for someone who wants a good deal, but isn't expecting anything more than that! : ) I'll followup after we've used them a couple months. I hope they hold up....
These bar stools are fashionable as well as sturdy. The adjustable height mechanism is of good quality. The design/chair backing was scratched by a set of keys; however, they stand up to every day use just fine. I've bumped them with multiple objects and swiveled into my bar a few times and no damage was done. All in all, a fantastic product.
I did a lot of shopping to find bar stools with adjustable height, back and arm support, style and comfort. These fit the bill perfectly. I expected I'd have to pay a lot more for something I liked. The name Mid century modern is a perfect description. My only criticism is that the height adjustment could be a bit lower as they just barely clear my bar top, an inch lower would be perfect. They are very comfortable and the chrome base is just plain beautiful. I bought 3 and am really pleased with the value. Double check the measurements from the arm top to the floor to be sure that they fit under your counter height.
Stools were easy to assemble and packed very well. They look exactly as they are pictured and add some modern flair to our traditional kitchen. There is a bit of stickiness to the lever that raises and lowers the seat on one of them, but we have been able to adjust it to the right height and plan to leave it there. Very comfortable. We are not heavy people though and we are already seeing indentations from where we sit and it's only been a few weeks. Stay tuned...
I am giving these chairs a 4/5 star rating and would recommend them, or purchase them again. These stools are very comfortable and sturdy. The metal base, foot rest, and pole are very substantial. The cushions look very good and not cheap in any way. The reason for deducting 1 star is that they are not perfect. The wood parts have some scratched spots or other minor imperfections. I bought 4 chairs are they all have some level of imperfection. So, if you are the kind of person who cannot tolerate things like that, these are not the chairs for you. They are minor and not a reason for me to return them but noticeable when inspected.
