These stools are very sturdy and look nice. My only complaint about the appearance is that the "rustic" features are not rustic looking at all. There are two "V" shaped slits on the left and right sides of the seat. They are identical to one another, they are the same exact distance apart from each on both sides, and the other stool looks exactly the same as the first. In other words, the "rustic" look was very calculated and done with a machine. They rustic feature are uniform and look more like poor craftsmanship than rustic. But they are worth the price and nicely constructed. If you are looking for something that is really rustic looking--this is not the stool for you.
Definitely a good quality product, very easy to put together however the color on the black finish is an antiqued black with some "worn looking" areas that are more red. The bottoms of the stool legs area little rough so if you plan on having these on a hardwood floor I would suggest putting gliders or pads on the bottoms of the legs so you do not scratch up your floors. Over all they are very sturdy and look beautiful and I would recommend them to others.
I ordered the smaller 24 inch counter stools for my island in my kitchen first, and realized when we put them together that they were a bit too short. Rather than send them back, I tucked them in a couple places around the house as spares. I then ordered the 29 inch barstools and we love them. Super easy to put together, sturdy, and they look great with our cabinets in the kitchen. We use them nearly every night when we eat dinner at the island in the kitchen. I love that they can tuck along side the island without taking up too much room, or taking over the kitchen. Definitely satisfied!
These are a good value. I was looking for more of a heavy craftsman look, although these are great for the kids and they sit perfectly under the bar- not too big and sturdy enough for a preschoolerto get up on and not fall off. Super value!
These bar stools were the first pieces of furniture I have every bought online. They are very pretty and sturdy. I was able to assemble them quickly and love their appearance. Because of how impressed I was with them, I decided to trust Overstock with my purchase of a new bed..
These are the best stools by far. I am so happy with this buy. They are very sturdy and easy to assemble and shipped very fast to me. Comfort is important and they are very nice to sit and enjoy a meal at the bar. I HIGHLY recommend these beautiful stools to everyone.
Another satisfied purchase from Overstock, however, I do agree (and disagree) with some of the other reviews. I bought 2 sets of the black and they are solid. I didn't have any issues with wobbling but did have problems with a few of those wood buttons that hide the screws, Some fit perfect, others keep falling out. As for the assembly, I don't agree that they were 'easy' to put together. I had four to do, but they go together with one of those Allen wrenches...my fingers were very sore, trying to tighten everything up. Overall though, my kids can now sit up at the counter, they do look great and feel they are of good quality.
Product came on time, look nice, easy enough to assemble by a single female (though having two people would have made it easier and quicker). Love the look. The height could be 1-2" taller for MY specific bar/counter purposes but that was not a misrepresentation from the company. Look very nice! Would highly recommend to a friend and they were far more affordable than other saddle style barstools I researched.
This stools are the biggest piece of sheet. ******* sells better quality items. It took forever to put them together, with us giving up in the end. The holes for the screws do not line on the legs and foot rests. They have wooden pegs there are supposed to slide into the other piece. Each peg was too big to fit in the holes. The pieces never completely come together so you have big gaps. The wood also chips when you screw in the screws and is extremely obvious on the black paint. The pieces were very dusty almost dirty. If I didn't need these stools for thanksgiving I definately would be returning them..... Or burning them. That's how much I hate these stools.
My hubby is a whiz at putting things together, so that wasn't a big problem. I expected the finish on the legs to be nicer to match the seats. I may have to paint them . Don't expect *** quality. They are comfortable and look nice. Not really worth the $, but better than **** quality.
