I purchased 2 of these counter stools for my kitchen island. They are exactly what I was looking for - elegant, yet functional. They are very sturdy, so I do not need to worry about my toddler tipping them over. I also like that they have a half swivel that automatically returns. My husband and I put them together in about 20 minutes each. He complained about the design and ease of assembly, but I personally did not think they were that hard to assemble. It is a two person job, though, for some of the steps. The only complaint I have is it took two tries to get stools that were not missing parts or scratched. However, Overstock was all over it and made sure I had replacements within the week. Overall, I would highly recommend these stools and I'm confident they will stand the test of time.

I purchased these counter stools at different online store last year. I need one more so I found this one on sale in Overstock.com. I'm waiting for it to be delivered to my house tomorrow and will see if there no missing and nothing wrong with this order. Per my experienced w/ this kind of counter stool I'm owening now, it has pro & cons: Pro: - Elegent look, steady seat - Good quality - SUPER FAST & cheap shipping (order 1/3/2011, shipped 1/4/2011, scheduled delivery 1/7/2011) - Better sale price compare to all other online stores. - Installation is not hard but not easy (just so-so) Cons: - Heavy seat - Swivel only half-way (1/2 circle round) & auto spin back to original position. - Still kind of pricey.
I am very happy with my purchase. I must say they look gorgeous in my newly renovated kitchen. I have cherry finish cabinets with bronze handles, granite counter tops, a beautiful Tiffany and Bronze Light fixtures . They match perfectly. I was hesitant with ordering these because in the picture the Florentine Coffee looked a bit greenish in color. They are a darker brown with a little black in them. Also I was worried that the metal would be too rustic. They are mildly rustic, the brushed strokes on the metal do not stand out a lot, which was perfect for me. They are very good quality, they do not tip easy. I was even able to stand on them to reach my upper cabinet without a problem. They do swivel, . the swivel mechanism is also sturdy. I was very careful when standing on it, holding on. I highly recommend these chairs.
These are beautiful, well-built chairs. The color is at it appears in the picture. The tubular steel is heavy, built to last. I would have given five stars but one of two boxes (four chairs total with two per box) arrived torn. One of the plastic bags holding the screws was open and the screws were roaming around the box. Amazingly, only one screw was missing and the chairs were not damaged.
