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 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.

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!

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 ;)

What does the back of the chair look like? Does the fabric on the back show through or is it upolstered on the back also?lcder on May 23, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello lcder, Yes the fabric on the back shows through, it is upholstered on the back and there is cushioning in between. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on May 28, 2013
The fabric on the back does show. These were pretty tricky to put together but they felt sturdy once I was finished.wolf1020 on Jan 18, 2014
Do the fabric panels pop out to re-upholster when/if they get damaged over time? And, is a set of two mean you get two chairs for $195.o5? And yes-can I order 5 chairs-how do I do that? nThansk, SWnortheastmi on Jun 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It does look like the panels could be removed without too much difficulty if at some point you decide to reupholster.Yes a set of 2 means you get 2 chairs. These are sold as sets of 2. We aologize but we are not able to split up the set.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 12, 2012
