We got four of the Stern Clear Acrylic Adjustable Chromed Barstool for our dark grey granite island kitchen bar and they look great. The chromed steel hits just the right note of gloss to our decor, which is mainly muted slate and brushed aluminum. The hydraulic action seems like it cold be hair-salon grade, and I would know, having spent many hours in such chairs. The minimal profile is exquisite.
Okay so like many others I was frustrated when I first got these stools. They look very nice but the hydraulic didn't seem to work and there were no instructions to help. For the most part, it's pretty obvious how to put it together. It comes in 3 parts: seat, base, and hydraulic pole. Here's the key and THIS IS IMPORTANT: You need to remove the dome-shaped black cap at the to top of the pole. Here's how to assemble:
1. Place round base on floor.
2. Set tapered end of hydraulic pole into the hole in the base.
3. REMOVE black dome-shaped cap from the top of the hydraulic. (I used a rubberized oven mitt but might need something with a stronger grip like pliers or a wrench)
4. Set seat on top of hydraulic by inserting the pole into the bottom of the seat.
5. Sit on the assembled stool and lift ALL the way up on the lever and wiggle (yes I know it sounds funny)
6. Get off chair and lift lever, the hydraulic should engage and lift the seat up
What I love most about this barstool is the sleek, low back design. From the other side of my kitchen bar, you can barely see the tops of these stools, which is nice (I like minimalism). Plus, the swivel action is smooth, noiseless and I have to admit, pretty fun. My kids love doing their homework and playing games at the kitchen now, and I can keep an eye on them while making dinner. Stylish, functional and well-priced, too.
I love the low back design of this bar stool and the fact that itís made out of clear acrylic. I got four of these for my home bar because these design elements give it them a very low profile and let my bar, which is a custom, handcrafted bamboo bar, take center stage. They are quite comfortable and the adjustable swivel action is smooth and noise-free. Sleek, modern and best of all, reasonably priced, these stools are a great addition to my home.
I can't believe how fast these arrived. Ordered on Saturday arrived on Thursday (Monday was a holiday). They look great, were super simple to put together (5 minutes and no tools). I just moved to a loft and they fit with the look of the place and the style I am decorating in. I think I'll order more furniture from this site since it arrives so fast and shipping is so cheap, not to mention the price can't be beat.
I had been looking all over for the perfect barstools and had decided I wanted - acrylic or Lucite, adjustable and swivel. These barstools are a steal! The best deal around! They were super easy to put together - and look fabulous in our newly remodeled kitchen. They are easy to clean and look more expensive than they cost. Everyone who comes to the house compliments us on them too! They are great - and a super great deal!
I was a little anxious about ordering these bar stools online without having actually seen them in person. When they arrived, which was quicker than I expected, they were everything I was hoping for and more! Super easy to put together, relatively comfortable, and absolutely perfect for my needs. If you are looking for modern/contemporary bar stools that don't take up much visual space, these are the ticket!
These stools were stylish and fit the decor of my house perfectly. A couple of things -- on my first order one of the chairs was defective. The other thing is that the acrylic and the steel show scuffs and scratches. There was even a little rust on the item. It wasn't enough for me to return them, but if I'm paying hundreds of dollars I expect them to be without any imperfections
Unfortunately this item is out of stock. We currently do not have inventory to check,but looking at the photo, the base is almost the same as the actual seat which is about 16 inches in diameter. Please enter your email address and we will notify you if it comes back in stock.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 24, 2013
We bought 7 of these bar stools. They are beautiful and are the perfect look for our home. However, we have had 2 of them become not useable. The stem beteween the base and the chair bends with just normal use. I do NOT recommend buying these unless you can guarantee very gentle use. Looks great, but NOT sturdy.jlynne44 on Mar 15, 2013
