Simply put, don't waste your time and money on this bar stool.
This barstool looks nice in the online picture, which was the reason I bought a set of four for our new kitchen. But, pictures could be deceiving! This bar stool looks and feels CHEAP after it is assembeled---if you are able to do it.
This bar stool takes a good 30-60 minutes to assemble, considering about 26 screws all located at awkward spots and you can't use your powered screw driver. I got two blisters on my finger after I was done assembling them.
Besides that, the biggest complain from me is the manufacture of this barstool has SERIOUS quality control problems that, NONE of the four bar stools have correctly aligned screw holes. I was only able to install three of the four screws on the base bracket of two of the bar stools, no matter how hard I tried to nudge it. For the other two, I had to use extreme forces to push them in, and only after one day, the base of one bar stool just broke.
I was not dissappointed, but MAD for the time wasted and for the blisters I got. I was going to return all four of them but my wife threw away the original packaging boxes of two of them. I took another hour of pain to dissemble two of them and returned them back to overstock.com. I would be very happy if the remaining two can last more than one year.
This one star is given for the good service from overstock.com

I received two of these stools for Christmas and LOVE them! They are a little difficult to assemble but with two people not bad at all!! They are very pretty and sturdy as well. I had no problems with the holes lining up at all.

These stools are beautiful but they are extremely difficult to put together. You need either an engineer or construction worker with the appropriate tools who can fix the holes where the screws go. The holes are in the wrong place so you have to drill in the proper holes. It took about four hours per chair to put these things together.

I purchased these stools for my kitchen I had already had a table and just needed to replace my chairs. I was 90% satisfied with the product. My only issue was the height of the stools and I blame that on myself for not taken the proper measurements of my table. They do come a little higher with an additional cost of course. They were not difficult to put together at all. I was able to assemble each chair in less than 30 minutes. Of course it was 2 people putting it together. The instructions were a little difficult at first but once we put together the first one each one after was a lot easier. I've waited for over a month to write a review to see if the quality stood up and they do. The chairs are still sturdy and none of the screws are coming loose and we utilize them everyday. I would highly recommend this product with the proper measurments.
I bought four of these counter height stools for the dining table in my great room. They are well made, and look quite elegant with the black leather seats lined with brass tacks, crossed style backs, and rich cherry color of the wood. They are a bit challenging to assemble, requiring two people to keep the piece stable while screwing it together. They were delivered very quickly, and arrived in perfect condition. I've had a number of visitors comment favorably on their appearance, giving me the opportunity to once again sing the praises of shopping at Overstock.
Admittedly, when I read a review that someone has trouble with assembly I just think they didn't read the directions. But in this case, the assembly problems come from the manufacturer. The holes on the legs were not aligned correctly and two of them were cracked. The quality felt sturdy enough, but I can't be certain because we were unable to assemble them and have to return. Going to try a different brand.
These stools are beautiful and seem to be very sturdy. Assembly is a bit of a challenge, but worth it. They are definately Cherry(a little more red than I thought) but that is what it says in the discription.

Is the seat height the top of the set or at bottom swivel part. I need the floor to the to of the seat. What is that measurement? Please help.cgonzalez296 on Nov 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cgonzalez296, and thank you for your interest in the Livingston Cherry Floral Back Swivel Counter Stool item #13347064. When measuring the seat height it would be from the top of the seat down. So here we are talking about a 24 inch seat height counter stool, it would require a 36 to 38 inch counter top. I hope this information answers your question. Happy holidays...overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 25, 2013
