Chairs are of very good quality. Solid wood in a nice style. They required some assembly. It took my husband about 45 minutes to put the first chair together, but he was down to maybe half of that by the fourth chair. The directions aren't that great, but you should be able to figure it out. Other than that, we are very happy with the quality and value. I've been looking for counter-height chairs for a while, and you can really drop some cash on chairs. These did the trick at a fraction of the price I'd been seeing elsewhere.
I just mentioned to my son-in-law how happy we were that we purchased these two chairs...they filled in at our kitchen counter where we had two much more expensive mission chairs. But now with four grandchildren we needed two more, and others were from a defunct store. These two new ones were easily assembled and the ones my husband and I chose to sit at for breakfast ...comfortable and not as heavy to move as our others. Would definitely recommend to others...actually just did!!!
Received these stools very quickly; easy to assemble. During assembly, we came across a quite damaged side support. Happily for us, the supplier had included a direct 800 phone number. We were discouraged because we were assembling the stools on a Sunday and, of course, got a voicemail when I called. Left message anyway. By 9:30 on Monday, the supplier had called back, asked about 3 questions to confirm the correct part information, and we had the replacement piece by Thursday! The stools have been great, look nice and are holding up well, despite constant use. .No delay in being able to use, since the damage, while significant, was more cosmetic than functional. VERY satisfied.
The fabric on the seat is much nicer than I expected, but I liked the style and size of the chairs so I ordered them,. It's a textured fabric with a warmer tan taupe color than it looked in the picture. Glad I don't have to change it. The chairs went together well, but both had uneven chair legs, which was easily balanced with a felt chair pad on the short one. Very solid and nicely designed for the price, especially for 2.
