I love this stool. It is a work of art and looks like it came out of a Japanese temple. Despite the scrapes on the elm wood slab seat, which adds to the rustic character, the stool looks great at the island in my eclectic kitchen. The design and heavy weight assure that it will not tip over when my toddler grandson climbs up on it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? More natural elm seat color than photo showed. Iron base looks more like pewter.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Scratches and scrapes on seat, which is a gorgeous slab of elm tree. Bottom of one iron leg is uneven and sharp, which neccesitates a felt pad to protect the floor.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description should have said that this stool is heavy, heavy, heavy.
We ordered 2 stools for our recently renovated kitchen. They're very heavy and solidly built. We love the rustic quality of the wood seats. The seats are unfinished, so we stained the seats to match our cabinets. We also plan to apply a few coats of polyurethane to create a semi gloss finish to match the cabinets. We had found almost exact stools at Marshall's Home Goods, but when we went back to buy them they were sold out. I was thrilled to find these here on Overstock. AND These are much better quality then the stools at Home Goods.
I ordered 2 of these stools for my kitchen counter. When i opened both, the finishes on the wood were different and the colour of the metal legs were also different. It felt like the first barstool was finished and the second barstool was forgotten about finishes and packed up. It had unstained wood with rough surface all over. I was happy to receive them before a party next week end, but now i have to hide them in the basement until i figure out how to return them. I shop online to save time, but i guess I had to compromise on the quality. I have heard good things about the customer service and had a good personal experience with them earlier when i had a pricing conflict. I am hoping the return of the unfinished barstool will also turn out to be easy. Will comment again on the return process after i go through with it. The style of the stools was awesome and would still recommend it hoping your order will not get messed up like mine.
I searched for a bar stool that was modern, but with a rustic appeal, for quite some time. These stools are a perfect fit! They are incredible sturdy and well made. They also come fully assembled! Overstock had the best price on these stools by far.
Besides the quick free shipping...these stools are beautiful! Big! They are bigger than I thought. The foot (base) of the stool is 18 inches deep. The seat is made of a very thick piece of wood and has a rustic feel to it while the body of the chair is made of sturdy metal/iron. I did put felt pads on the feet so that they would slide nice on the wood floor. This is a heavy, sturdy and beautiful stool...I have a 6 foot island and bought 3, they fit snug- but somewhat large for the space although I really like the modern/industrial/rustic feel.
Daughter loves them. They are definitely sturdy and come assembled unlike a lot of the other saddle seat stools we have looked at. 4 star rating is because one of the two stools had several large scratches on the legs. Rather pricey for them to come with scratches on them.
I saw a display model of this stool in a furniture store and fell in love with it, but they didn't have any left. I searched everywhere and finally ordered 2 when they were in stock here. We love them! I wanted saddleback stools, but most of the ones I see are so light and small. These are so solid and sturdy and actually comfortable to sit on. The kids climb on them all the time and they never tip over.
I have bought 3 of these wonderful counter stools. Only one arrived damage but Overstock was very expedient in replacing it. This stool is heavy and sturdy and it would be difficult to tip over . . .something to note if you have kids and appreciate safety around your kitchen. And they look great too. Very comfortable for a stool without an upholstered seat.
