Form and function is how I would describe these chairs. Think Eames reclyner form and function. I actually went through 2 other purchases, and cancellations until I settled on these. I looked at how Nate Berkus designs, and that was my deciding factor. Just the right amount of modern/comtemporay in my mix. As stated they are a medium walnut leaning toward red tones rather than yellow tones. They are for kitchen counter height. And are very comfortable. They are sturdy for everyday use yet still light enough. No wobbling. And you don't have to put them together!! I think that is what makes them the great quality that they are, is that they are put together where they are manufactured. They were packaged extremely well, which takes some time to get them all unwrapped. Can you tell I like them!?
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? If you look at the pic that is looking down on the 1 chair that is closer to the color, more red than yellow medium walnut
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality. They come assembled. Strong welds. The legs could almost pass as a bronze color.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good.
LOVE these chairs. Super sturdy - my not-lightweight boyfriend can sit in these and they remain stable. They seem to be of good construction and are very nice to look at. The only downside is there are no rubber "feet" or anything similar. The hollow metal tube simply stops. Finding a good functional foot to protect my hardwoods has proven a bit difficult. But, we still love 'em!
Three things make these stools cool: 1) adjustable feet to avoid "the wobble." 2) heavy seat and supportive back 3) great for a casual sit-down or a more prolonged stay. I sometimes use my kitchen island to work with my laptop. These become my work chair and have proven to be both pretty and comfortable. I have sat upon these stools for hours at a time and have been pleasantly surprised how comfortable they are. They have a neat "bent plywood" look; allowing you to see the lamination of the wood that provides an "refined industrial" look. The wood has a fairly dark finish and so far, the stools have withstood a fair amount of abuse and continue to look good!
I got two sets of these and I love how they look. They are super comfy with just the right angle for the backs and just enough curve at the knee to not hurt your legs when sitting. BUT... the wood chips and scratches very easily. Keeping them anyway. I really like the way they look.
I got two sets of these chairs for our kitchen island. For the price the quality is great. They come assembled and we had no problems with any of the chairs we received. You can easily adjusted the legs for any wobbles. I would highly recommend.
These are the best barstools Look good, built sturdy, my 20 month old climbs up and stands on them at island. Love the clean lines, a little modern with the iron legs. Measure your space carefully, I got 4 to GI around my semicircle island and so disappointed I have to return the unopened box of 2 because 4 just will not work. Live them so much I am keeping the 2 we opened to go somewhere. I will figure out where.!
They are very lightweight and its soft wood. In one day the seat had deep scratches. I bought this because I wanted a counter stool with a back so my toddler would stop falling off the backless stools we currently have. But the chair is so lightweight that he actually falls just trying to get on it or off because when he braces himself against the counter and has his bum on the seat, it propels itself a backwards and he falls anyway. Even my elderly father who is very rigid, had a hard time sitting because the chair slid back as he was trying to sit down. The legs of the stool make a loud noise when they are dragged along my tile floor as well- very irritating, they are not padded so you have to pick them up to not hear it. I wanted to return them but didn't want to go trough the hassle of mailing them-which is why I hate shopping online in the first place! We are just going to start using the old backless stools again.
These counter stools were exactly as I expected and I was delighted not to need to assemble them. As others noted, the colors are a bit more red for the wood. In my kitchen, that worked to my advantage. I am so pleased that I plan to get two more stools. I would recommend these to prospective buyers because they are true to the photos, they were shipped and delivered quickly, the wrapping was professional so no damage was incurred, and they are not too trendy. I think of the style as modern-lite, which fits with our simplistic and clean lines.
