I looked for bar stools for my new home for months. I was looking for something unique and sturdy. I have three kids and they climb up and down these all day. They are very sturdy and wipe up clean. Did I mention they are beautiful. The price is outstanding for the one of kind look you get. I have seen very similar stools at other stores for two and three times the price. ENJOY!

these look really great. we really like the look, but we were a little surprised with the weight of them. I was expecting solid wood seat/back and iron legs and that's not the case. It's a veneer seat/back and aluminum legs. But that's actually good because the kids can move them around easily. we don't need anything too precious because of young kids so the price of these was just right. But when they are a little older we will get something a little nicer.
I have had my eye on these stools since last year. We were moving into a new urban style apartment and the look was just perfect. However, I procrastinated purchasing them until I was living in our new place (about 3 months) and would be home for the delivery. Well, when I was finally ready to purchase them, they were no longer available. I searched and searched on line for a month and the stools were not available anywhere. Disappointed for sure. So months later, they were available on Overstock again. I did not hesitate and purchased them right away. Delivery was fast and both chairs came in one box. They were wrapped well.
The look of the stools is very unique and basic - no swivel, no adjustments, no chrome, no padding, just wood and iron. Reminded us of our Eames chair. The legs are solid & strong. They are true bar height. The feet glide nicely on our hardwood floors. Reasonably priced for 2 stools. That's the GOOD.
Now the BAD. Basically, the chairs arrived damaged. Both of them. The back of one seatback is covered in pock marks and the finish is missing. The other looks like someone tried to fix it and failed. These are too difficult to send back so we will live with them. I would not be surprised if these were originally returned and then resold to us. We will just pretend they are rustic and vintage rather than a brand new purchase. But the condition of the chairs does not take away the fact that they are still very cool bar stools.
Was originally looking for a round science lab-style bar stool with a back, but those were out of my budget. These "school chair-style is looks great and has simple, clean-lines. Although the specs on the site listed the size, it didn't really register until I received it...the seat is very large, which makes the overall square footage large as well, so it sticks out of the bar. Also, the seat is flat-ish and does not slope towards the back...so along with the front curve, it is very easy to slide off of the slick wood seat. A chair pad solved the slippage issue tho.
After looking at hundreds of bar stools, these are the best! Love the back on them, makes it comfortable to lean back. They did come with some scratches, but they came fully assembled and fast shipping. So I am not complaining. They are sturdy, since we are hard on our furniture.
Hello! These stools are beautiful. Can you tell me where they were manufactured? This is probably a long shot, but if you have any information about labor standards in the manufacturing process, that would be appreciated. Thanks very much!hello2014 on Apr 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

You answered a previous question that the stools are 29 inches high - in the product details, it says 30 inches. Also you stated they are counter height, when they are really bar height according to the description and stool height standards. Can you confirm please?chefwife on Nov 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
