I bought one of these chairs for my kitchen island. It is pure white and the white parts of the chair are not distressed. The oak seat, however, is distressed as the description specifies. The chair must be assembled, but it is quite easy to accomplish. The chair is sturdy, heavy, and the seat is very roomy. My chair is balanced and does not wobble. I plan on buying two or three more for my kitchen island. I am very satisfied with my purchase here at Overstock.
The construction of these stools are relatively easy and straightforward. The issue is needing a screwgun or perhaps some wood glue to affix the crossbars. The holes don't line up or there is some sort of disconnect there. If you are handy or have someone handy to help out you should be just fine. Otherwise, material-wise, you get what you pay for. It's not bad at all. It has a matte white with a definate gray undertone. It is not "bright" white or off white in the least. The finish appears to be easily marred but if this is a real concern you could easily repaint them I am sure with a more sturdy finish. I am happy enough with this purchase. As I said, you get what you pay for. Addendum: One week and a handyman later, consensus is that these are poorly constructed and the holes definitely don't line up. I will be returning them sadly. We have to drill new rounds for the crossbar pegs to fit in to and for more than 90.00 a stool that's ridiculous.
Assembly was slightly challenging. The screws kept stripping. I got them assembled, but with a little pain. Nice, solid chairs. I have them on wood, so I stuck some padding under the legs to keep them from scratching my floor. We use them against our kitchen counter bar.
