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.
I bought two sets of these and they fit lovely under my island. Love the color and style. They are small little stools, so if you are looking for a "big seat" then you might want to pass these up, because they are petite; which because of that, I was able to get two under the island on each side. They look great in my gray and white kitchen.
These stool are gorgeous . Especially for the price. You do have to assemble them which some of the screw holes did not perfectly line up but we got through it. I have received nonstop compliments on these. My kids have even spilled a few things on them already and the fabric seems pretty resilient.
Love, love, love these stools! I ordered a set of (2) as a test to make sure I was satisfied with the finished product, and after receiving them I couldn't wait to purchase (4) more! They are a beautiful addition to my new kitchen - exactly what I've been looking for awhile now and the price is very reasonable. Thank you overstock!
I wish someone would have mentioned that the Renata Grey Counter stools are NOT grey. The wood has a grayish tone but the cushion is definitely not grey. It is dark BROWN, totally not the same pallet that is shown on the photos. Just a warning for those who expect "Grey".
Bought these stools for a second home in Florida. Loved the look and they came exactly as pictured. Very comfortable padding. Only downside was that they weren't as easy to assemble as I had hoped. A few of the drilled holes did not line up making assembly tricky and wood glue necessary. Overall they are a nice style and I'm pleased.
These stools look great..they are a washed wood look but not as light as shown in picture. The assembly was a bit of a pain. I needed to purchase longer screws and use wood glue in order to have legs secured tightly. One stools leg was slightly shorter but felt pad on bottom fixed the issue. The stools were a little smaller than I expected (I never checked measurement so it was my fault) height is perfect but they are a little smaller width wise than I envisioned. I ordered another pair for my island. The seat is very comfortable to sit on. I would definitely recommend...have some wood glue on hand just in case ;)
I ordered a set of two and just got them today. We put one together and I am very pleased with the look and comfort of it, so came back to order another set. The picture with the stools at the table is the closest to the actual colors of the wood and fabric. They are comfortable and do not seem small in seat size to me at all. I do think they could be a tad bit higher for counter height, but I think I can adjust that with some pads for the feet.
