Value: 3 stars. For the price, you can't beat it. It offers a broad seat with smooth swivel action for a 140 lbs occupant. Flimsy base and easy assembly.
Appearance: 3 stars. The seat is covered in an average looking faux leather. Nice polished chrome throughout. The plastic cover hiding the junction between the vertical support and base had mismatched chrome finish. The chrome finish on the plastic looks like chrome bumpers on a plastic model car, while the chrome on the rest of the chair looks like the chrome bumper on a real car. Would have rated 4 stars otherwise.
Workmanship: 3 stars. Base is not solid. However, it is a sturdy stamped sheet metal that will buckle with excessive weight. At 140 lbs, it held up well. Since the base isn't solid, it is light and can easily be moved. Unfortunately it can be top heavy and prone to tipping. Definitely, not kid friendly. Then again, that is why they call it a barstool. Kids under 18 shouldn't be in a bar. The foot rest can be a great handle for toddlers to climb or pull on. This will result in the stool tipping and falling on them. Barstools in general at bars are bolted/anchored to the floor. The best part of this stool is the seat. It is wide and the piston action on the air struts offers a comfortable seat. The swivel action is smooth and the height adjustment works well. However, I would have preferred a little more padding between the bent laminated wood core and the faux leather. Maybe I should eat more donuts and get a bigger you know what?
Ease of Assembly: 5 star. Too easy.
In total, this barstool is stylish, functions well, and is a good buy. It can be a liability for those with kids or entertaining families with kids. This can be easily remedied by securing it to the floor or getting rid of the kids. I would have rated this product a 3.5-star, but there are no in between ratings and it didn┐t WOW me enough to deserve a 4. I would recommend this product to a friend without kids.
I bought 2 saddle black barstools -- they arrived quickly and were very easy to assemble (even the small tool required to tighten the screws was included in the box!). Not only do the stools look great, but are also a lot more comfortable than I expected them to be -- and they swivel too! Because of their low profile (no back), when not in use they can be completely tucked under my small kitchen counter, giving me more free space in the kitchen. I'm very happy with my purchase!
We really liked this item. The seats are even padded a little bit and they fit really well under the bar area.
Since you can adjust the height, we can even use them as extra seating at the table.
We got the black but the blue looked nice too
I purchased this barstool because I needed an adjustable height seat for an astronomical telescope. With a height that adjusts from 22.5 to 30.5 inches, it's perfect for my scope. It also cost me less than a third of what I would pay for an adjustable chair in an astronomy catalog. The stool was easily assembled in 5 minutes and is pretty sturdy. It easily supports my 200 pound weight even at full height. The seat is padded just enough to prevent "butt-fatigue" even after sitting on it for about 20 minutes straight. There's no seat back but that shouldn't be an issue when sitting at a bar or a telescope. It is just a bit top heavy so I don't recommend letting kids play on it. The Barstool is also pretty decent looking. The chrome plating has a nice look. Time will tell if it lasts. The seat is a little funky, looking like a cross between a bicycle and tractor seat. I'm interested in seeing how long that lasts, too. This isn't a great barstool but for the price, it's an excellent value.
Process to order was easy and fast, Delivery was very timely. Very high quality of the product. Easy to assemble. Excellent value for the money. I have seen barstools like this in stores for 3 times the cost. Love the saddleback seat, and adjustable height adjustments. Thanks, Overstock!
These are the perfect stools.. The are clearly stylish, and they are actually very confortable. They are also adjustable, and the price is great!! I seen serveral stools before buying these and none beat the price, style, and comfort!!!!
