These little stools are great. I really felt like I got a good bargain with these. I purchased them for use at an island in my grandmother's renovated kitchen - I needed something compact, sturdy and inexpensive. The stools look aluminum and the seat is a good vinyl imitation of black leather. Immediately after these arrived, I received my monthly issue of House Beautiful and guess what I saw featured in a "fancy" kitchen? Supposedly these stools are very similar to some sold by DWR (though I could not find them on the DWR website). Silly, but the feature made me like these even more! I believe the manufacturer has addressed a problem in a previous review as they arrived with gray rubber stoppers that fit tightly and inconspicuously and will prevent any damage to floors. The assembly was a snap and I was easily able to remove the black leather(ette) tops to recover them in a more appropriate fabric. I will absolutely recommend these stools again. Great purchase.

Love the stools. Ordered two sets (4 stools). They were impressively packaged to protect the metal surfaces and very easy to assemble. However, both boxes had three screws missing so I was only able to assemble three of the four stools. The instructions had a toll free number with the comment, "Give us a chance to make it right." I called and spoke to Brian who was very helpful. He explained this was a new product. The six screws arrived about a week later in the mail. The stools are very well constructed and again very easy to assemble. Overall, we are very satisfied with the counter stools.
These stools are dangerous, they flip over very easily. The foot rest bar is mounted on the outside of the legs instead of inside so if the kids put weight on it to reach something on the counter, they flip over. Also caps on the bottom of the legs are rounded father than flat which encourages the flip. I have to remove them when the kids are over. Poor choice for my needs.
I ordered 2 sets of stools for our counter. It was hard to decide between all the options. We were blending furniture from our previous home with the new house. I did not want to clash wood tones- so I decided to match stainless steel with the appliances and the black seat with the counter top. They look great. When they came- 2 legs did not screw in. The company sent replacements which did work. The stools dropped a lot of "rust dust" when being pulled out. They are still doing this 2 months later. The stools do not swivel- but seem to be a little wobbly for larger people. I cringe a little when large guests pull up a seat. Overall- they look good. I will keep them while I find the perfect stools- then they will go to the basement for the kids to use at a craft counter.
Loved the look of these stools and they did have one review which was good. Upon assembling them we found three of the four had bent metal brackets and had to be straightened before we could screw them to the seats. One stool had a defective thread that connected the lower part of leg to upper and even after trying to screw it in using vice grips to try and turn it to fit we were unsuccessful and there is abut a 1/16 of an inch gap which enables the stool to wobble. Overall these stools are manufactured poorly and I have come to expect that from items made in China since they seem to have no quality control standards. They look good but were a pain to assemble.
These counter stools looked so nice in the picture online. I read every review before purchasing them and saw that many people talked about how they tip easily. I ordered them anyways. They do look nice. They fit the space where I wanted them but they are not very stable. If you sit directly on it without wiggling, they are fine. If you slightly twist your body to look in a different direction, it feels like the top is going to twist off. Nothing has happened to them. They didn't break but they just feel flimsy. And they feel like they would tip very easily if you move the wrong way. These are in a place that we only use occasionally so they will probably be OK. If I had planned to use these everyday, I would have returned them.
The stools are very comfortable. They look great and they were a good price. They do tip ov er easily so you have to be careful when letting small children use the stools but other than that they are great.
After looking for months, I found these counter stools, which are the right size, very simple, and the right color, as well as very reasonably priced. They look good in my kitchen and are the right height for my counter area.
Aside from a few gauges out of the paint on the legs, which are somewhat hidden, and I will fix, these are mostly perfect for me.
There is one other problem, which I will also fix. The slides on the feet, which were added after reviewers were concerned about scratching their floors, are SO slippery on my floor, that the stools slide out from under you when you move a little to the side. I will probably attach a more rubbery foot to prevent that in the future.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality, as in durability, appears to be good. However, when they arrived in the box, several of the metal parts of the legs had large scratches out of the paint.
