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.
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 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.
Love these stools! They look more expensive than they are, yet they compliment our eclectic farmhouse style. Unlike so many reviewers, they did not have a strong odor when opened. The one thing that disappointed me, the wood color is an overall gray rather than a light wood tone with dark highlights as shown in the pictures. However, I still love them.
After reading all the reviews I agree that the wood is a light brown with some white wash in the wood grooves but that's what I wanted. The seat color is a dark grey some could say brown it depends on the lighting again I love they way they look under my kitchen island. I would recommend. There is a smell but it does disapate, everyday I sprayed febreeze and it worked. For the price well worth it!
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!
The stools are perfect. Like others have indicated, the wood is darker than the photograph, but I was actually hoping for the wood to be a little darker. The color of the fabric does tend to look a little more on the brown side but LOVE them!! Sturdy, thru to size and easy to assemble. Excellent value for the money.
I rarely write reviews on products that buy but I had to with this one. These counter stools are perfect and are a great addition to our kitchen. I was hesitant to purchase them because of the reviews that complained about the smell. I guess I got lucky because the stools that I received did not have a powerful smell. Yes there was a faint order but that's not uncommon. These stools are sturdy, comfortable and great looking. Easy to assemble too. Glad I purchased them!
I was so excited to receive these today. However, the color of the wood is far much darker with less white wash than the picture. At least on my monitor the wood appears on the lighter side...what I received were quite dark, they also rock a bit...I will most likely remove the little plastic feet from the bottom of each leg and replace with different thickness felt spots to stop the unevenness. They are lovely and comfy and so I will keep them.
Very easy to assemble, make sure you tighten every bolt, you might forget a few here and there but you will notice if the chairs feel flimsy after being put together which happened to me. Love the color, and the rustic feel of them, really wish they had backs to them which would make them absolutely perfect but overall I would highly recommend them!
