We have had 4 of these for about a year. They look great around our kitchen island and are comfortable. The wood on the arms of ours are wearing a little from rubbing against the island countertop. But, they still look nice.They are great for kids because they adjust in height, and could be used at a high bar or counter bar. I have black countertops and the seat cushion is such a dark brown that they match nicely and you can hardly tell they aren't black. They don't scratch our wood floors and I think they look even better on a darker floor. They are easy to clean and every time I clean the bases with windex they look practically brand new. They were simple to put together. Great stools overall.
The items arrived in a timely manner. There were two stools, two cartons. From one carton there protruded the stem of the stool but there was no damage. The assembly instructions were very clear and in no time at all this 78 year old woman had both assembled and ready for use. They seem to be of good quality and function. I have been using them for counter type activities and then I can swivel around and watch TV in a comfortable and relaxed position. I would have rated these stools 4 1/2 stars for the product alone but did not have that option.
The barstools are average quality, but great price. One of my three had a faulty hydraulic cylinder on arrival. Sadly I was too busy at the time to send it back - always a hassel to box up and send back : ( The nuts tend to loosen and have to be tightened regularly and I cringe when a heavier guest sits on one of the stools. All that said, I like the way they look at the bar and am happy I found them on Overstock.
Ordered three. One came damaged---the wood had big gash in it. The other two have some blemishes, but, we'll live with it. Design is cool and they are comfortable. Overstock is replacing the back. Always the best customer service from the big O.
I have a long, contentious history with bar stools--either they are wobbly, uncomfortable, or are just plain hard to manage on the floor. They either hit the bar when they swivel, or they don't swivel and the floor is marred by the feet. I just bought a new house, so I decided to be picky, and I'm glad I did. These stools are good looking, and the right height to fit under the bar, so they don't hit it when swiveled. They are absolutely not 10 year bar stools, but at $117.00 apiece, I didn't expect that. However, they all work perfectly, and they have very few imperfections of craftsmanship. They are heavy enough, but not are cumbersome, and they were easy to put together. It took about 2 minutes per stool after they were unwrapped. They don't have a ton of padding, but that's not what I needed. The contemporary styling is great. I bought 4 to put along my bar that separates my kitchen area from the dining and living areas. I love them. A great bargain as usual from Overstock--who I might add got them to me in record time! Win and win!
