As a 250 plus guy, I was a little concerned when I read other reviews about the possibility of not supporting larger people. I was even more concerned when I saw the relatively small box that arrived 5 days after I placed my order. Much to my pleasant surprise, the chairs were very easy to assemble and are much sturdier than I would have imagined. They adjust easily and are actually quite comfortable. Best of all is their sleek design. I have a very small contemporary apartment and wanted a clear acrylic stool to give the room a more spacious feel. Mission Accomplished. These slide easily under the counter and almost dissapear to the eye.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Arylic is clear as pictured.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be sturdier than I expected when I first saw the box.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
I ordered 2 of these ghost stools for the end of our kitchen island in my modern home renovation. They are really pretty in person and I love the way they look. Unfortunately, they are really uncomfortable for me to sit on. I usually have shorts on in the house and the edges cut into my skin uncomfortably leaving a painful welt. I have to be careful when I slide off because it feels like it's scraping off my skin. My Husband concurs, he says he can feel the edge through his pants so he dosen't like to sit at the counter long. We are not large people.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great! Product is really beautiful.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Technical quality is OK, unfortunately the seat on one of the 2 stools I ordered drops 3 inches as soon as you sit on it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very, but no one talked about how rough the edges feel on the seat.
-Clear seats disappear into your room when not in use (reducing visual footprint)
-Fairly easy to assemble
-The acrylic will scratch fairly easily. After a few days, there are some scuffs already (there are acrylic scratch removers out there, buy one)
-The attention to detail on the craftsmanship is good, not great (e.g. the rounding of the acrylic is a bit imperfect)
-No sufficient padding under base. Will scratch floors if left as is.
-As others have noted, make sure to remove the black cap from the center pole (it is tough, you'll need channel locks or pliers).
-The plastic disk that the seat sits on needs to go a certain way (fatter part of the wedge at the bottom I believe), note the arrow and the directions.
-You'll want to figure out some felt padding or feet to apply under the base or it will surely scratch your wood floors.
-These chairs are not Roomba-friendly. My Roomba "humps" the chair base for a few minutes before moving on - resulting in scratches and scuffs on the base.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very solid for the price. Not super premium, but certainly not "cheap"

I am totally in love with my new barstools! I live in a 600 sq. ft. studio apartment, and these are exactly what I needed. They are small in scale and dont take up valuable space, but after sitting on them for a few hours a day for about 2 weeks now, I can confirm that they are sturdy and pretty comfortable (as much as a backless barstool can be). The acrylic seats allow the barstool to almost disappear, so they make a statement without adding too much visual weight. I've scoured the internet and, for the price, these are by far the best option out there for anyone looking for modern, unique barstools. Assembly was relatively easy. Think I spent about 30 min on the pair. The only hiccup I had was getting the end cap off the center rod. Ladies, I'd recommend a strong man to help you get it off :)

I purchased two of these stools - primarily because they were acrylic and very reasonable in price. I was initially concerned my order had been separated, disbelieving that both chairs could be shipped in the one small box that I received - until I lifted the box and realized its weight. These stools are heavier than I expected and the acrylic doesn't look like "cheap plastic" as I had worried might be the case. I'm glad I took the chance to purchase these - the inexpensive price had caused my hesitation -but in this case you get MORE that what you would pay for elsewhere.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Consistent to what was depicted and much heavier than expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Quality, not "plastic" feeling

Stools were great at first but they don't last. By the first year the rubber ring on the bottom was brittle and breaking off in pieces. The hydrolic was broken on both of them soon after. Disappointing, need to throw out and buy different ones now.
I love these stools. They are cool looking and very subtle. I needed a stool that didn't overpower the kitchen bar and these are perfect. A great buy. I bought two and then ordered two more. Easy to put together too.
Love the look of these stools! Great product and will improve the look of our kitchen. Was easy to put together. Had to call the company to replace one of the clear seat pads as it had a chip and one of the chrome bottoms had discoloration. Customer service was excellent and the items were sent out immediately!
