This stool is the most difficult furniture that I have ever assembled. Totally 26 screws at very awkward positions.
I bought four of them based upon its good look.
It took me a good half an hour to assemble the back and legs, only to find that the the screw holes on the seat don't align with the metal bracket's openings of the bottom base. I ended up with installing only three of the four screws.
I was lucky to encounter problems at an early stage with assembling the second one. The holes on the legs don't align with holes on the bottom base and I had to use so much force that I almost broke or splinter the legs.
With two hours and an half spent and blisters on my fingers, I lost confidence assembling the remaining two. I called overstock.com to return all of them. Wife unknowingly threw the two opened boxes the other day and I was able to return only two of them. Assembling the other two was NOT without hole alignment problems either.
Don't waste your time and money on this stool!

I bought the chair for my retail business so I can sit on it while I type or research things on the computer - like right now. Hurricane Sandy delayed the delivery so I've only had it for about two weeks while I write this. It seems fine and I have no reason to think it won't last a few years. It is sat on for 7+/- hours a day and my butt doesn't hurt, so that's a good sign. It was less than $*** and free shipping so even if it only lasts a couple of months, I still feel I got a good deal. But, that said, I'm still expecting it to last a few years.
Until I bought this chair, I had never shopped on this site. After looking and looking around at shops in the area and not finding anything I liked, I asked my manager to find a chair and she sent me some links to chairs on overstock.com.
Being a small business owner, I prefer to shop at small brick-and-mortar stores instead of online. But I'll give it a try here and see what I think.
If an online store succeeds or fails does not change my neighborhood, shopping locally and at "mom-and-pop" stores will. It is a shame that the furniture stores in my area only had snob salespeople and inferior quality products - it led me to go online. I guess I'll stay a while and look around.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colorlooks the same as on the site.
