They are strong , good looking and exactly what I wanted for my new kitchen. They have a bronze, brown and black color to the seat which is perfect for my color scheme. The pillow seat is thick enough to be very comfortable. The design blends into traditional and modern designs.
Based on the attractive design and color, and the favorable customer reviews, I bought four counter stools. I was concerned about some comments about difficulty of assembly, but did not have undue difficulty with my stools. Once the first screw is in (helpful to have someone else holding the ring to keep it level), the remaining screws can be done with no help. We are very happy with the stools, including the hardened rubber feet which will not scratch any floor and look extremely durable. They are comfortable and look great.
The chairs look good and function well when assembled. However, There was some difficulty in assembling the metal pieces as the holes were not properly aligned. In addition, the legs were initially not level and there is no apparent means built in to the design to fix that.
I like the style of the metal parts of the chairs. They seem substantial and look good, and the size of the stools make them more welcoming than something flimsy. My husband put them together and since I wasn't around, I don't know how difficult it was, but he didn't complain, and he's not handy, so it can't have been too bad. The seat pads are a bit stiff, which is okay as I think these things get softer over time. The worst part is the mottled, vinyl look of the seats. The title on the website should indicate "Bonded Leather" right in the title so as not to confuse people. I did see that it was bonded leather, but I didn't see that at first. I am sure there are various levels of quality for bonded leather, but to me, this is vinyl, pure and simple. Well, at least it will be easy to care for.
Pros: The seat is large which makes sitting in the stool much more comfortable. The padding is quite thick and the leather seems to be of decent quality. The swivel feature is great. The styling is transitional and could go with many types of decor. Great price. Cons: The assembly. Many others commented that assembly was easy, and for all intents and purposes it was. It's pretty straightforward as to what goes where and how. My main problem was with the components themelves. The drill holes and metal pieces were for the most part not level or not drilled in such a way that the nails could go in easily. I ended up having to buy allen drill bits for my drill to get a proper tightness on all the screws. I bought three stools and all had crooked metal fittings where the foot rest goes. In any event, I kept them because I waited too long to assemble them and couldnt return them. Since we dont plan to use these everyday, I think they should be fine. They look good so I am ok with keeping them.
Great stools sturdy and goes well with modern or country décor.

Received the stools in promised time from Overstock. Ordered 3 of them and they came in seperate packages. Athough they needed to be assembled, it was very easy to put them together. They are stylish and very comfortable to sit on. The leather is very good quality and the legs seems very sturdy. Swivel mechanism on each one moves effortless on them with nice wide seats on each one.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these stools. My husband and I ordered three of them for our bar area. The seat is much larger than pictured, which we were happy about, because they can accommodate larger guests. They did take a little while to assemble, but were easy enough. They look great and are the perfect height for sitting at the counter in our kitchen.

I was uncertain that I would be happy with the quality of a barstool that did not come assembled, but, so far, my concern seems unwarranted. My husband put these together for my sister, as these were a gift to her. Assembly was easy. The stools feel solid.
