I needed some multipurpose stools to use as a night stand for guests and additional seating for big dinner parties. I have a mid-centery/contemporary style and these really fit the bill. They don't take up much visual space and they look very minimalist. They seem pretty well built and as long as you aren't tossing them around, they look like they will hold up pretty well. The price for two stools is fantastic too.
I just received these stools in the natural brown color. They are very attractive. I knew full well when I ordered them that these are CHAIR HEIGHT, not counter or bar. That's what I needed. They have a beautiful design that adds a modern rustic charm to the room they are in. One problem: when I took them out of the box and ran my hand across the seat, one of the stools had a small screw sticking through the top. It had been drilled too far and it came through just enough to feel a tiny prick on the seat. This was easy to fix with a metal file - not enough of an issue to go through sending them back - but just be careful when you first get them.
We bought 4 green stools. They're great in that they're sturdy metal bases and they stack well. The distressed look on the wood seat is unusual and perfect for our decor But the green color was too bright (the photo in the ad was difficult to see as far as the true color). My son gave a light sanding to take off some of the bright green, then stained the seats with a softer sage green tone. It was a quick, easy project and gave us the exact color we wanted. We love them!
I was looking for an item that would serve two purposes: primarily holding a plant, but also serving as extra seating if I invite too many people over for dinner. Two stools for this price is a great deal: all of the other regular and garden stools I looked at were the same price or more for only one. These stools are very sturdy and the perfect height to ensure guests are at the same level regardless of whether they are sitting in a chair or on a stool. The stools look vaguely industrial, with the distressed wood seat (I bought the natural color) and metal legs, but have blended into the rest of our decor with no problem.
while i love these stools, BEWARE of the category. THESE ARE NOT BAR STOOLS OR COUNTER STOOLS. they appear under the "bar stool" category, but they are only 18" high. Loved them, but had to send them back because i needed a tall stool.
