For years, I have gotten out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the kitchen for a snack. (My wife thinks this is bad for my digestion but dreaming makes me hungry.) I usually make myself a sandwich and stand at the counter eating, half-asleep. For Christmas, my wife got me one of these stools, specifically so that I can have a seat whilst engaged in what she calls "aberrant eating behavior." Strange or not, those sandwiches taste so much better when I'm sitting in this stool. It feels good, looks stylish and best of all, the adjusting mechanism is nice and quiet, so the only thing you'll hear coming out of my kitchen at 3 in the morning is the sound of me munching away.
These look good, but are not comfortable for a lengthy sitting. They are O.K. For a quick meal, but not for longer. The uncomfortableness is based in two things. First, there is very little padding on the seat. After about a half hour I need to move to another chair. I am fine in a plane wooden chair for hours, but this does not work for me. Second, the back is set at an angle that is useless. It is slightly reclined, but leaning back feels unstable. I don't think our backs ever use the backrest and we liked to lean back on our old stools. When you sit down they drop an inch or so. I am used to this now, but it was strange at first. They also have gotten stuck under my counter when someone got up with the chair back under the counter. The base looks good, but after a month they are a little dented. We do not have small children or wild teenagers that could have caused this. I am not sure if it is from the dog dropping toys on it or something we are doing. Basically they look good and the leather feels nice, but I doubt if they will still be in our kitchen in a couple of years.
I must agree with the other posters who have noted the comfort-value aspect of this barstool. I also was surprised at the high quality and super comfortability, especially considering the low price. I purchased four of these stools for my workspace table and they are really great. The adjustablity range is high -- almost ten inches, so really most anyone can get a perfect height when they sit at my table. Product arrived on time and in perfect condition.

This Glascow Black Leather Adjustable Barstool is highly elegant, comfortable and great quality. I have ordered two for my bar corner and the stool look fantastic in the room. The elegant leather combined with the chrome give the perfect look of this classic yet modern furniture. The price was reasonable for this good quality and the chairs arrived fast. I would recommend this product for everyone.
I bought six of these stools for my office workspace, where people sit at elevated workstations. My employees and I are extremely happy with them. They are comfortable, sturdily built (the base is heavy) and the adjustability operates easily and smoothly. The office environment is minimal in design, so these sleek, efficient and modern-looking chairs fit perfectly, both in size and look. All in all, these barstools are an excellent value.
I ordered this chair based on all the glowing reviews and high rating. Well, let me tell you: the stool was a big disappointment. The quality of the leather was poor, the back of the chair offered zero support, and the gas lift was faulty--the chair dropped about a foot everytime I sat in it (and I am not a heavy person). Ignore the stellar reviews; this stool is a waste of money. Mine went right back.
I bought three of these Glascow bar stools in Australia over four years ago and needed a fourth for my new kitchen island bench. I searched all of Australia for a matching one but had no luck so took the risk of buying via the US and hoping it was as advertised. Postage was high (almost the cost of the stool itself) so I was hoping I didn't need to send it back. I ordered it on Thursday (the day before Good Friday) and it was delivered the following Tuesday, despite it being Easter holidays in between. Delivery to west Australia was quicker with Overstock than when I get things delivered within my own country! The bar stool is exactly as ordered and I'm delighted with it. It was well packaged and already assembled. The seat is genuine leather and a perfect match for my other stools.
We've owned three of these bar stools for a couple of years. They look great in our kitchen and function quite well. The recent problem has been that the 'leather' does not wear well over time. We're not sure what is causing the material to shrivel up, somewhat like plastic when it is hot, but we've noticed that this happened to a second chair just after replacing one of them. Strangely, it is happening where your back hits the chair, not where you sit all of the time.

I have bought two from this Glascow Black Leather Adjustable Barstool and I am glad with them. The chairs are extremely comfortable and with great style. The stools match perfectly with the kitchen furniture and the perfectly modern atmosphere I was searching for. Great purchase from Overstock.
We ordered three of these bar stools and aside from a few issues, we are very happy with them! Please note, we previously used Ikea bar stools with no chair back and they were not very comfortable. These arrive completely assembled and in great condition. The leather is supple and a nice quality and although there is not a ton of padding, it is very comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. We love the chair back and the fact that the chair is adjustable because my husband is tall and I'm short. The base has a felt covering so it does not scratch your floors, but the stools are heavy so you wonder how much you should be moving them anyways. The ISSUES: 1) When you sit in the chairs, they tend to give a little bit and when you stand up they pop up a bit. It was a little annoying because sometimes the chair back gets stuck under our counter. 2) The base is shiny metal and not brushed metal, so dust and dog hair shows up easily. 3) There is a slight rocking back and forth because it seems like the tube that fits into the hydraulic lift isn't a perfect fit. Hope this makes sense. Overall, we are very happy with the product and the price we paid (well, it could always be cheaper...).
We've had this chair for about a month. We needed a chair that would work in a training environment. It was important that it not have arms, since that would interfere with the mobility. The chair seems to be well made and has a very heavy base. The one drawback is the chair has a relatively small back, at about 12 inches, which doesn't provide a lot of lumbar support.
