I was expecting a higher quality product than what I received based on the previous reviews, images of the stool and the price paid.. The four legs may be solid wood but the seat itself appears to be a veneer of some type. It looks just like something you can get at a big warehouse store (particleboard with a veneer slapped on top) for a whole lot less money. Many reviewers were impressed with the quality of the packaging. I am assuming that it is so well packaged so that it doesn't break apart into a bunch of particleboard chunks during transport. While not shown anywhere in the packaging, I can only believe this is something that was made in China. It looks rather cheap. I will be returning it. I am very disappointed with my very first purchase experience at Overstock.com
When I unpacked the chairs, I noticed the looked smaller than expected.....but when I sat in the chair, I felt extremely cramped. Needless to say, I am definitely a small person. I checked the advertised sizes and confirmed the chairs are listed at 19 inches wide. I took out my tape measure and the seat came out at just under 13.5 inches wide. With that, you have just over 11 inches in width to place your feet on the iron bar to rest your. They very small, feel smaller......because they are literally tiny.
the chairs arrived relatively quickly & just in time for thanksgiving. two out of three were, however, broken in similar ways. both had chunks of the seat back cracked off. i didn't even pull the last one out of the box, as i could feel that the piece had broken off. visual inspection of the interior of the product let me to believe that the wood was not so great & that there was really just glue holding them together. attractive, but not such great quality, especially for the price. customer service was great & handled the return for me at no cost, since most of the chairs were broken.
Chair packaged VERY poorly. Back of chair was in multiple pieces. Nearly $XXX - The wood quality is very poor as well based on the grain and texture and since in multiple pieces I was able to see the wood within as well. I would have expected it to be more dense instead very light and brittle. Scuffs on the legs as well. I wanted this chair to work out but it was very cheaply made. Would MAYBE pay $XX-XX- MAX.
Just received my bar stools and LOVE them!! I have a thick Artisian Granite oversized island in the kitchen and the bar stools look perfect !! Very rustic and sturdy ! Love the natural dark wood and black distressed legs!! Love , Love , Love!!!
We ordered these stools in the lighter color. When they came in we realized we had gotten the darker ones with the black legs. However we decided to keep them because we liked them. We've used them for over a month now and they are sturdy and look good. We get great compliments on them.
The size is a little smaller than I expected but it worked out really well. The legs came in a weathered black color that I wasn't expecting. :( I would have liked them to come all as the wood look I saw pictured. Over all though, everyone loves them. They glide well on the floor as well.
We bought these stools for our new kitchen remodel. Our style is rustic industrial and they coordinate perfectly. Friends and family gush over them as they look cool but are also very comfortable. As a bonus, we can also still strap in our daughter's high chair seat.
