It took me longer to get the things out of the box than it did to put it together. The instructions didn't even need words! Just 4 screws and an Allen wrench that was included. Everything else just drops into place and starts working. We use them next to a grey slate laminate counter and they really look good. The only issue is that our young grandchildren don't weigh enough to cause the chair to adjust the height so we have to do it for them. The chair is a "hardish" plastic that is comfortable and comfortable to sit on , although I probably wouldn't want to sit on it for hours at a time. It is "modern" looking with the shiny steel and somewhat less shiny plastic seat. But even in our house with very traditional furniture it fits in with the counter that it serves. I think that for roughly $40 or so for each chair it is quite a bargain.
The stools are as we expected and are accurately represented in the pictures. If you are looking for a modern look in your kitchen or office these work very nicely with out spending too much. Quality of chairs are very good and mechanisms to adjust seat works very well.
we renovated our kitchen and went from orangey oak to espresso color and white countertop and new backsplash, these bar stools are just icing on the top for our kitchen- we are not done furnishing but I have already received compliments from friends and they said it does look modern and high-end.. one of my friends is already planning on ordering for her own kitchen=)
Although this is a very cute stool, beware that it is plastic. My 6 year old broke it by pulling the handle. Had I paid more attention to the material it is made of, I would not have purchased this item. The saying, "You get what you pay for" holds truth in this case. I was very disappointed too because it is such a cute barstool.
These stools are just what I've been looking for. They feel good to sit on and the swivel is so nice. Being the chef in my kitchen, I'm up & down alot grabbing things during the meal. They don't make my back tired even when I sit and work recipes on my computer for any length of time. They don't feel unstable and won't tip. Overall I'm very happy I made this purchase. Nice! Lori
I ordered 3 of these barstools for my kitchen island. I placed my order on a Monday morning and they were here Wednesday afternoon. I saw several reviews stating that these ship quickly, but two days was a great surprise! The barstools look exactly as they do online and I believe the quality is right on par for the price, if not even better. My only complaint is that what I consider to be the key component of the assembly was not in the instructions: once you have all of the pieces put together, YOU MUST SIT ON THE BARSTOOL TO ACTIVATE THE HYDRAULIC LIFT. Maybe this is obvious to some, but since this was my first go at anything with such a lift, I thought we were missing parts until my friend found a tutorial for a similar barstool on YouTube. Hopefully this will be helpful to others :) Otherwise, I am super happy with these all around. Are they an investment that I will have for years to come? NO. But I wouldn't have expected that for the materials & price. They're stylish, functional and easy to assemble.
