After much searching through numerous stores and websites, we chose these barstools based on their appearance and price, plus the availability of free shipping! I was a little disappointed, but not surprised, that we had to assemble them ourselves when they arrived. Assembly was not terribly difficult. I was VERY impressed by the cushion - it's thick and SOOO comfortable. I'm not sure what kind of material it is, but I suspect it is a gel or memory-foam. I love the leather - our previous barstools were covered in a micro-fiber and it stained really easily, especially with two kids and multiple neighborhood parties. I also appreciated the sturdiness of the construction - there is a metal base around the bottom of the cushion, which will prevent what happened to one of our previous barstools - the fiber-board base under one of our old cushions broke right in half, leaving the cushion to sag and flop on one side. I'm glad to see that won't be possible with these new ones. My only real concern is the metal itself - it's fairly lightweight but strong, but I'm concerned about how the years of wear will show on the metal footrest - will it show scratches, gouges, etc.? Likely. But only time will tell. All in all, I'm very happy with the new barstools, I would definitely buy them again if I had to, and I'd recommend them very highly to anyone else looking for something similar. They're sleek and contemporary without looking crazy modern - they fit nicely into a comfortable, homey environment and they look stylish. For the price, they can't be beat.

I bought these bar stools with the intension of recovering the leather. I didn't realize they were real leather and was so impressed with how nice they looked when they came in I decided not to recover them. These stools are sturdy and very stylish. Highly recommend!

These stools exceeded my expectations. They were a snap to put together (follow the instructions - they seem counter-intuitive, but it's correct!) and the materials were good quality. I was leery of the leather seats, because I can't bear the fake look even real leather has sometimes, but I was pleasantly surprised at the color, grain, and thickness. The construction is sturdy, and after a month they are still looking great with no wobbles. Good job Overstock, as usual!
Love these bar stools. Bought these to replace two other sets of bar stools that either were uncomfortable to sit on or poorly constructed. These are perfect, easy to assemble and very comfortable to sit on for extended periods. Look beautiful in my new kitchen!
