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.
Be aware that as some previous reviews stated - the color of the legs is MUCH darker... fortunately I have dark wood floors and it looked great. The pic looks very light - they are very dark. The fabric looks more of brownish than blue. I struggle to see the blue on the top. I was surprised that it came in so many pieces - each stool has 9 pieces to put together. I got them together easily but they legs are not even and both rock. I have tried adjusting but with that may pieces and screws its impossible. I think they look great but the quality is much less than I expected. I do not see these lasting very long.
DON'T DO IT - THEY LOOK NOTHING LIKE THE PICS. The legs are NOT a natural oak, rather they are stained a Medium Brown with a white wash. The cushions are also more BROWN than Grey. The delivery came to my office so I asked everyone I worked with what color they saw and they all said BROWN. I CALL FOUL - MISLEADING PHOTO
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 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 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!
Disappointing to say the least...The color can not at all be categorized in the grey family let alone be called grey, thankfully I can paint! The screws to hold the legs together have nothing to grasp onto so they kept coming undone, thankfully, my husband is handy& got larger screws to made his own hole! Bottom-line if you don't want to make any alterations look for something else!
