expected these stools to come with some assembly required, so I wasn't surprised
when it came in pieces, yet in one package. It took me about a half hour,
and came with everything I needed to do it. These stools are good quality
and are pretty sturdy, not wobbly. I have 5 kids and they are very stable
and just the right size for our counter height island. The seat is very
comfortable and wide enough for any adult, yet tucks away nicely when not
in use. I really like mine.
These stools look great in my house and everyone comments on them. I only wish that the 24 inch came in black. My countertops are 34 inches from the floor and these fit perfectly. They are very sturdy and comfortable. It took me about 5 minutes to put them together.
These stools are well constructed and look good. HOWEVER, the screws sent to assemble the stools fit very tightly into the holes, and the allan wrench sent with the screws was TOTALLY INADEQUATE. To avoid frustration, expect to spend an additional $10 on screws (#14 wood screws, 2" long worked for me) and assemble with a power screwdriver.

This product exceeded my expectations. The wood is solid and the graining and color are a rich dark brown. The stool is actually very comfortable and sturdy. It had a narrow profile which is what I needed. A super buy!

I ordered 4 of these stools in the brown. They work perfectly at my kitchen island. The brown color is just the color I wanted - dark brown. The stool height is great with my 36-inch counter height. The quality is good and the price is amazing! I looked all over for stools like this and Overstock had the best price!
The walnut color is very pretty and I liked the design of the seat, BUT they were already broken when I received them. The screws in the bottom of the seat were stripped from the wood on one of the chairs. The wood was loose on the bottom of the other chair. It looks like these may have already been returned by another customer after they had broke. Very poor quality.
These are basic stools. That being said, they are actually very nice basic stools. Nice meaning that they are well designed, attractive and sturdy - the three criteria that mattered most to me when purchasing. I got four of the dark brown color. The color was consistent; the quality of the manufacturing was consistent. They are solid wood (thankfully) and screw together with adequate hardware. My one & only complaint are the screw covers (wooden buttons) are always falling out. I remedied that problem with some Elmer's glue - problem solved.
The kits come with your standard Allen wrench to screw everything together. My advice is use a real Allen wrench on a socket ratchet & simplify (and speed up) assembly considerably.
I'm very happy with my purchase, and feel this is certainly a quality product worthy of consideration.

It is the same wood as the rest of the stool. It does have a medium-shiny finish to the wood. Mine are not veneer - the wood is wood! I love these & have had them for almost 10 years. They've held up under a lot of wear & tear.balibabi on Dec 4, 2013
Thank you for your question. The seat is made out of Asian Hardwood. Please let me know if you have any further questions, and thank you for shopping with us! Have a great day! -Racheloverstockcustomercare2 on Dec 4, 2013
Wood--love the feel BUT the little wooden plugs that cover the screw holes are all disappeared. I had put them back when the popped out but I should have used wood glue on them---my only gripe, really.debweb1 on Feb 18, 2014
I'm interested in dark brown 24-inch saddle bar stools. Would you consider these to be the best quality of the those carried by overstock? If not, please recommend which others to consider. Thanks!fiftyoon on Jan 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

We're very happy with these stools. Have used them daily for almost three years now.manhattankings on Mar 29, 2013
We've had these for several years and they're still good. Very sturdy.georgia on Apr 7, 2013
we bought a pair about 6 months ago and will probably order more because we like them so much.contadinak on Dec 2, 2013
LOVED them so much I bought 2 more of the small ones and 2 of the larger ones. Have had them almost 10 years and we use them a lot. The ones from O-stock are much more sturdy than ones I see in the retail stores. I'm glad I bought them here.balibabi on Dec 4, 2013
What type of hardwood are these stools made from? Also, the picture shows 4 small squares on the top of the honey stained stool. Do the walnut stained stools also have those 4 small squares? Thanks!fiftyoon on Jan 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The stools are made from Asian hardwood. Also the squares are only present on the honey stained stools.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 10, 2013
I have the walnut and but do see the squares where the legs meet the top. Subtle though.georgia on Apr 7, 2013
What are the dimensions at the base of the stool? I'm thinking the listed 17.75 inches x 9 inches deep are probably the dimensions at the top. Thanks!fiftyoon on Jan 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, it is. The base is 14 inches deep by 17.75 wide and comfortable to sit on!debweb1 on Jan 8, 2013
You are correct, those measurements are for the actual seat. Height of bar stool is 24 inches.georgia on Apr 7, 2013
Our island can accommodate only 3 stools. Is it possible to buy 3 stools rather than 2 sets of 2 stools? Thanks!fiftyoon on Jan 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
