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.
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.
I spent a lot of time looking for new chairs for my kitchen island. These chairs looked nice online and were a good value for the price. They shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. No assembly is required which is really nice. The color is a bit darker and more red than the online photo but this actually gives the chairs a richer look and they match my kitchen perfectly. I do wish you could buy a single chair and not just a pair because I only have room for one more. For now I'll have to wait on buying another chair but recommend these if you are looking for a comfortable and sturdy chair for your kitchen.
I just got 4 stools (so 2 orders) & I loved that they arrived all assembled. The boxes are huge but I guess it keeps them safe. The stools are heavy & feel quite sturdy. They give a modern style...and a bit retro, which I love. I was looking to add a little modern to my contemporary home. These are awesome & are great priced. The biggest reason I bought these was due to the fact I have a toddler. I needed something that would be heavy & not tip over if she climbed them. Also, I needed something that would handle her abuse & dirty hands when she is climbing them. These wipe clean which means they are toddler proof. If I had to say one negative thing about them it would be that when they are pulled out from our table they screech on our tile floor. I fixed this by putting little felt protectors on them & now they slide out without any noise.
Nice quality construction, very sturdy. Smooth wood, even finish, a little darker color than expected, but looks really good. Exactly right height/width/depth for my space. Arrived promptly, fully assembled and well packed. The seats are a little slippery when you first sit on them, but they seem to warm up and sort of lose the slipperiness after a minute or so. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Love these. The seat is nice and wide so it seats comfortably. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the feet do not have felt or rubber tips. I have hard wood flooring so they made a terrible scratching noise when you pulled them out. I just stuck on some little felt furniture stickers and they are perfect now. Happy with this purchase!
I purchased these to go in my new loft space and I could not be happier. The quality of the stools is just what I was hoping for and have come to expect from Overstock. The seats are ample and curved which makes for more comfortable seating. The railing at the bottom keeps feet from dangling which can become uncomfortable. I found the chairs out of the box to not be level but realized you can adjust the pegs at the bottom of eat leg to make them stable - excellent. I highly recommend these stools if you're going for an old school, industrial look for your space.
These are cute "school" - like chairs. They had a matching dining chair set that I thought we'd get but once we finished our kitchen remodel, they were darker than I wanted. That aside, these are great chairs- comfortable, great height. They arrived individually boxed & preassembled. A few dings in the wood but since we have a toddler I figured anything we got will be dinged in a matter of months. We put small felt rounds on the feet so they slide better on hardwood. We sit at our breakfast bar a lot, so these are getting used more than the dining set.... Happy with this purchase.
