Assembling these barstools wasn't difficult, but putting them together without a power screwdriver and a partner isn't a task I'd want to tackle. Once assembled, they're surprisingly solid, and I attribute at least part of that sturdiness to our two-person assembly method. Having one person hold the seat while the other secured it seemed particularly important. I definitely don't agree with the description when it calls the fabric a "deep mocha" color. I'd say "wet sand" is more accurate, just a little darker than what it seemed to be on my monitor. Having read other reviews, I bought these assuming the fabric wouldn't be dark as officially described, so I wasn't disappointed. Like at least one other reviewer, I wish a photo of the back of the stool were available with the description. Rather than the solid wood back I expected, a portion of the back is fabric -- sort of like the stool is made to look as if the frame is open and you're seeing the back of the seat cushion through the back of the chair. It's not an unattractive design, but it's not what I expected.
after reviewing many stools, noticed that workmanship at top of chair matched mother's china cabinet. soooo pleased with these barstools and happy that i bought them. i checked out different barstools from same manufacturer (without fabric back) and noted such good reviews. the same reviews follow this set of 2. the fabric is a nice neutral cafe-au-laix color, not the ligher tan that my vaio showed. and microfiber too=easy to clean. the instructions were a bit sketchy, but was able to perservere in a reasonable amount of time. hint: note that the 2 bottom side rungs need shorter rung on top. will purchase another pair
I usually give 5 stars on products I purchase from this site because I am usually 100% satisfied. I am usually great at following directions but the instructions for this product were horrible. The four side, horizontal legs were not marked and made it difficult to decipher which went where (they all are bent and shaped differently). After struggling for more than an hour to assemble, the quality and color is superb!

The bar stools came really fast. I ordered them around midnight and they were there the next evening! It took about an hour to assemble each one and I got four chairs; so it took about four hours. The chairs are really nice and sturdy and they are elegant looking. Aside from the assembly being time-consuming, the chairs are definitely worth getting.
we shopped around for about a week looking for the right stool for our kitchen.I was skeptical about purchasing barstools online. After i read the reviews we ordered 2 sets. the first stool took about 20 minutes to build ,after that, the rest took about ten minutes.we are very happy with the look and sturdiness and recommend these barstools.
Good quality barstools that took my husband a few minutes to assemble and we bought 2 sets. They go perfectly with my home decor. It's only been a month or so since we bought them, but I expect that they will last a long time. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I purchased the barstools about five years ago but they were okay. I have small children and they didn't hold up too well to them. The fabric stained where I couldn't get it off and they scratched easily. Also the bar on the bottom came off. Good for a family without kids.
Not too dificult to assemble. these are unlike any barstools I have seen in stores and are a great value for the price.

I loved these stools but sent them back based on the color of the pads.. in the description and on th epicture they seemed Tan ish but when i got them they were bery camel yellowish and thats not what i was going for, however quality and everything else seemed solid and they seemed like a great deal.

This chair is beautiful and certainly a lot more expensive looking than in the pic! Very comfortable because of the high backs and a beautiful shade of taupe. The only glitch is I have to figure out a way the front foot rest won't get scratched because it is inevidable that people will use it to rest their feet. Other than that (which would be a concern with any wood chair) I LOVE THEM!!!
The barstools are a great value. I could not believe the price was for TWO barstools! They came without instructions, which made assembly a little difficult but once we figured out which pieces went where the assembly went smoothly. They seem sturdy and to be of good quality and they look great at my bar area!
Bought these chairs or breakfast far, i piece of advice i wanted to have these chairs stay steady for as long as possible so when we were putting it together , I got some wood glue and all wood to wood connections i used some wood glue- not too much just a drop, and left overnight to set. today about two weeks later the chairs are very steady and have a solid feel about it. ( glue was not provided but i went and purchased it another ****)
Received these barstools and both had damage on the top edges. Called customer service and they immediately had new chair backs sent....both were damaged again...and considering the fact that the manufacturer had to pull the replacements and repack (yes they were wrapped in bubble wrap but a piece of wood was chipped out) there's no excuse for the second set being sent damaged. The stools themselves are nice, but frustrating to have to wait for re-ship and they're still damaged.
Don't know if I would still have ordered this if I had known how difficult it would be to assemble. Unmarked pieces and poor instructions made it a long and painful experience. But the result is what I was looking for. Definitely a two person job...preferably two people not married or dating each other ;)
