I bought 3 of these stools at least 2 years ago. They are surprisingly comfortable considering that they don't have a back on them. Whenever I have guests over, people tend to flock to the stools first even though I have a couch, 2 lounge chairs and a regular table and chair set in the same room. The ability to change the height easily is great and people love to play with that feature.
The seats themselves do not appear to be very high quality at first; they're very lightweight and (I think) hollow. But that said, they have held up extremely well and look as good now as they did when I first bought the chairs 2 years ago. I host a lot of parties and these chairs have gotten a lot of use. A couple of my friends liked the stools so much at my house that they've gone and bought them for their houses as well (and got them from Overstock too). I have never noticed a bad smell and don't remember that when we first got them; however, if there was any odor, it definitely did not last.

How is the quality of the product? Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
Just purchased a new house with kitchen counter - a firs for me! These stools are very attractive at the counter. The only problem I have is with height adjustment - the stool will sometimes drop down to a lower height than previously set and you have to readjust to desired height.
After just a few days, two of the stools have started to make grinding noises when rotating. Also, while very attractive, they are not very comfortable to sit on. Should have chosen something with a softer seat.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
