These are beautiful counter-height stools (more of a chair, really), perfect for our new breakfast bar. Very sturdy for pre-schoolers to sit on, large seat with comfortable, low back. The seat was much larger than I expected (they are very deep and stick out from under the counter more than I'd expected), but it makes for very comfortable seating, so I am pleased. The leather and stitching look very nice and stylish. The brown shade appeared MUCH darker in person than I expected from the picture (think dark chocolate bar vs. picture, which appears more like milk chocolate color), but I love the color. Assembly is not entirely easy (well, my spouse put them together, but grumbled a bit that it was not 'quick' and would take much longer w/ the hand tools provided - said power tools are definitely a must!). That said, we had them put together and at the counter within about an hour.
3 of 4 chairs still wobble after assembling and reassembling. Assembly instructions and leg/side rails labeling is not clear or consistent. Leg side rails fit only one way, but the angled end is very subtle and hard to tell if you got it right. Spent 10 frustrating hours total. Even if you had two people, it is still nearly impossible to line up the parts and apply brute force to push in the front leg frame. They are perfect at the island and match the island espresso finish very nicely. Price was half the lowest prices I could find; now I know why. Next time I will pay more for ready to use furniture. I put together an entire platform bed and dozens of other pieces of furniture. It is never easy but this was maddening.
These stools get a lot of traffic. They still look great and were easy to assemble but, the brace in the seat is flimsy and easily breaks. It doesn't make it unusable but they all need reenforcement. I would buy them again knowing that.
I originally thought I was purchasing the dark brown leather and when they came they were cream. Sure enough that is what I ordered, I started to send them back but they look great and I wound up really liking the cream. It looks really nice with the dark wood and is a little more modern look than the brown. All in all I recommend!
put these together myself, took about 20 minutes each. Made my kitchen look fresh and modern......just what it needed. I weigh 200#s and feel safe sitting in them. I rotate them around the counter so that they all get equal use as I noticed the seats are starting to get compressed looking. I would recommend.
These chairs were easy to assemble and very comfortable to sit on. Perfect height to my counters. One of the chairs had a broken leg and my account was credited promptly. I would definitely recommend these chairs to anyone who wants a nice chair for a great price.
I bought two last month and they were great! I wanted two more and Overstock arranged to notify me when they were available. They emailed me and I ordered immediately. They were at my house in 4 days. They are great quality for the price and they were put together very quickly by my friend. He ignored the directions so they went together easily and are very sturdy and stable. Love the color also. Very pleased....
The first 2 sets I ordered where chairs instead of the barstools I ordered. The 2nd set were sent and they were 2 different colors. Then I was told that was all that was available. My first order with overstock, hope others have better luck than I did.
