My wife and I finally thought we had found the counter stools we wanted after months of searching, trying, and not falling in love with countless other types/designs. We were drawn to the driftwood weathered look of the legs combined with the sophisticated dark gray/nailhead cushion. Unfortunately, upon arrival, our cautious optimism turned into massive disappointment. None of the reviews really emphasize this, but the legs are considerably darker in person. Like near espresso color with a light whitewash in the grooves of the wood. The legs on our chairs were darker than the already dark charcoal upholstery, if you can believe that by looking at the picture. We were convinced the packaging team had mistakenly packed the 'coffee' version of the chair found on overstock. They looked nearly identical to the pictures shown for that model if someone wants a more accurate idea of real life color. Nowhere close to the smokey bleached driftwood we had hoped for. Overstock was great about returns, but the whole experience was no doubt frustrating. Maybe we got a bad batch, but the SKUs were right and we really didn't want to go through the same hassle twice. Just be prepared for a MUCH darker chair if you like the look.
These stools are the perfect combination of rustic and upscale and look great at my kitchen counter. The quality seems good, and the price is great. They were pretty easy to put together - I assembled them myself and I am not super-handy. My one complaint is that they do have a very strong odor. Smells like mineral spirits to me, and I sure hope they are not very flammable. I had to assemble them out on my porch, because everyone inside was complaining about the smell. I bought these stools in 2 batches because my first order was a trial to see how they looked. When I went to re-order they were out of stock and I had to wait a month or so before they were back. The second order was much smellier than the first. Anyhow, they are sitting out on my porch right now to air out, which is helping. Five stars for looks.
These are just perfect in my new home. Beautiful grey fabric on seat cushion with studs evenly placed around the base. My sweetheart assembled these easily in about an hour (I purchased four). They are comfortable to sit on even for my 6'2" 225 lb. son. Why pay more? Rustic yet elegant wood adds to the style of these stools. Absolutely perfect! Thanks again Overstock.com for making my online shopping experience a joyful one!
Great quality built chairs. They look amazing with the new kitchen island. Dark gray color is perfect with a white kitchen to get that contrast. Overall very very pleased. Also, overstock was excellent in handling the transaction from start to the end honoring the discount even though the coupon failed to apply in during the checkout. Thanks overstock!
The other reviews were right on. The legs are darker than the picture. I didn't care about that, they go perfectly with my black island. The other reviews indicated a strong odor. Yes, that is true - the odor went a way overnight. Very happy with this purchase. These stools are solid and easy to assemble.
The chairs are stunning. They look gorgeous in my kitchen. I have gray and white kitchen and these are just slightly darker in order to create a nice contrast. The top fabric is a dark gray, and that brings out the black/gray in my granite. The only complaint is that 2 of them wobble a bit. For the purpose we use them for, they are perfect. They are also pretty comfortable.
The stools were easy to put together. I was looking for stools with a white wash type finish and ordered these. While these do have that, the legs were actually much darker than the picture and the white wash wasn't as light as I would like. Regardless, it still worked in my space and so I kept them because I didn't find anything else that fit the bill. The nail heads add a nice touch to the chairs. The stool I would say are narrow but I was looking for ones that didn't take up much room for my tighter space so check the dimensions.
