First the good news. These are a bargain and look pretty nice.
As far as the quality, I guess you get what you pay for. They're serviceable.
Putting them together, however, is not very pleasant. Here's some advice:
- The quickest way to lose the initial excitement of receiving new furniture is discovering that you have to use a hex key to put it together. Use your own hex key set, if you have one. The one that comes with it is poorly sized for the bolts you are provided. I did the second chair much more quickly by opening up my toolbox and using my own key.
- Any simian with decent spatial awareness will probably just confuse himself/herself by following the instructions.
- The instructions say to not use power tools. However, I found it impossible to affix the seat to the frame without a screw gun, as there were no starter holes in the seat.
The first two stools I bought were great. The quality was very nice and I liked them very much...when I went back to order the remaining stools they were out of stock. I love Overstock.com for their backorder process. If you want to get on a list they will contact you with the availability, if they come back in stock or not, it works great. So they send me an email and say they have more so I went to order the remaining chairs I needed. Thy only had one more set, so I ordered them. Big mistake...They must have been returned or something because they were scratched up and when I made them up they wobbled. Oh yea, by the time I recieved the second set of chairs I had received another email that the rest of the chairs were in so they were ordered and on there way. I decided to keep them because to take them apart and ship them back. When the last 4 arrived they were better than the second set but nowhere close to the original set I purchased. They look great in my kitchen however I would not buy these again.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? darker than photo on website
Please tell us about the quality of the product. First two were ok, the rest were not great.
Bought these barstools for our bar in our new house. We are spending so much money on bigger purchases so I wanted something inexpensive yet nice! These fit the bill. Assembly was very easy, taking about 30 minutes to assemble both, and quality was pretty good. Very lightweight yet sturdy! Highly recommend for those on a budget or simply not wanting to spend an arm and a leg on barstools!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? True to color
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Decent quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Just as described
The only thing that we were disappointed about was that the product was shipped with NO assembly instructions :-( Thankfully my husband is good at stuff like this because he was able to figure out how to assemble the stools but it was really disappointing that there were no instructions included. Also, the packing slip was not ours...it was for the same item, but the customer information (i.e. name & address) was not ours. One suggestion would be to list the seat height on the product description on the web site as it was not listed. Overall, we were pleased with our purchase and would probably order from overstock.com again in the future, despite the incorrect packing slip and having to guess how to put the stools together

I was looking for bar stools in a certain style that were not really expensive. These fit the bill! They are good looking, and sturdy for a very reasonable price. They look great and go well with our dining set. The color is a deep brown just as pictured, and they are sturdy, and easy to put together.
Shipped quickly. Assembly was straight forward, took about an hour for 4 stools. Fit was good. Don't tighten everything until all fittings all screws are started. The stool tightens up well thereafter. These are not real heavy stools if you have bey large guests but they are a lot of stool for the money. They look great and appear to be standing up well. I'm glad I purchased these stools. They are just what I was looking for and I saved a whole lot of money.
I ordered these bar stools and I can't find the assembly instructions. It's not so difficult, but I would like a guide. Are they available online?darwin571 on Oct 14, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

again, a question about color. The description says espresso and the chairs look brown, but the product details list says color is black. Which color is correct?jackie27514 on Sep 23, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
These were made in Mexico. Rubberwood is the standard common name for the hardwood timber of Hevea brasiliensis. There are extensive plantations in southeast Asia. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 20, 2012
