I needed a certain size stool for the desk that I use my portable sewing machine at, and this does the trick.
I needed one that had decent up and down range so that it could fit back under the desk when not in use, and not stick out...a very tall order. I also wanted one that had a small seat since I sit on the edge of a stool when I sew, and the big cushiony stools now days are just too cumbersome. A snap to assemble, and I heeded the advice of another reviewer about the grease. My only complain is that it does have a slight wobble to the stool top, when it is elevated..very slight, so not enough to make me not want to keep it. The wood finish on the top actually closely matches the finish on the desk.

I bought this stool/side table after checking out similar products at that well-known Swedish big box store. Although this one was almost twice as much as those other ones, it was definitely worth it! The top is solid wood, a light to medium tone, and the base is matte black metal. Assembly consisted of screwing on the table top (one minute), placing the bolt to hold the top in place (30 seconds), & putting the rubber protectors on the three legs (again, 30 seconds). I didn't even need instructions.
I also have to say that I've NEVER received a product that was wrapped so well. EVERYTHING was wrapped extremely well. Not a scratch on anything.
This is a no-brainer.

I run hot and cold with O's quality. Sometimes I'm very pleased and other times I open the box and realize the merchandise is poor quality at best. The latter is my experience with this stool. The legs have a raised stippling in spots which looks like painted over rust (although I cannot determine if it is or is not rust), the welded joints are a real mess, the feet don't sit flat on the floor and the wood seat is chipped. My experience returning items though is such that for what I paid it's just not worth it. This was purchased for under a kitchen desk - finding something that was the proper height was challenging and this will be seldom used so it's not worth getting knickers in a twist about. At least it looks good in its new place.
I purchased this stool for my kids to use at the piano. They needed something higher than the bench, but slightly different heights from each other. This allows each of them to quickly be at the right place. It's very well constructed, and blends in nicely - not too modern, not too traditional. It was packaged very well. I'm glad I had a heads up about the blue grease from other reviewers, so assembly was trouble free.
Great product at an even better price!

Simple wood stool. I've had it for a few weeks now and it seems pretty sturdy and well constructed. The wood seat is lighter in color than the picture. I small annoyance is that the seat has a large center post that is screwed on to the base to raise or lower the seat. The threading on the screw isn't a tight fit with the base thread so it wiggles a little when you sit on it. Also, I use the stool in the lowest seat height setting and I notice that the seat slowly turns as I use the seat. There is no way to "lock" the seat in position so that it doesn't turn. Minor annoyances but overall a solid buy.
Needed a stool that would be functional and yet slide easily under our computer desk to be out of the way. Finding a stool with the correct height was a challenge...18" was too low and 24" too high. This stool adjusts to the 20" we required and it's stylish enough to add to the decor. Price was reasonable compared to other options. Definitely would recommend. PS We did add a stool cushion for added comfort.
Agree with other reviewers that this came very well packaged and that assembly was a breeze. I use it with my drop leaf table and set it at 20" high. Very sturdy yet looks slim and compact with an industrial twist.
As the seat is made of MDF can it be changed to a solid wood seat that would be more durable?ezekiel13 on Jun 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello ezekiel13, yes you could change the seat if you like. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 24, 2014
