Wow! These counter chairs really exceeded my expectations. I ordered one set and now ordered another set I am so pleased. They were not difficult to put together but you have to be careful to have the legs on correctly or the chair will be wobbly. My chairs are sturdy and stable. It took about 45 minutes to put together the first chair, but the second took only 20 minutes. Everything was there including the glue and the allen wrench. The color is actually deeper than what is shown on the picture. It is more a blue red versus an orange red, which matches my home better. I relied on other people's reviews of the color in purchasing this product as the picture displays a more vibrant orange red which would not have worked for me. I am very happy with this purchase.

I recieved the chairs as ordered... easy to put together, and they not only are the perfect height for my island kitchen dining table, they have also enhanced and upgraded the look to the entire room. I was pleasantly pleased that the red color was not as bright and vivid as I imagined. They are somewhat toned down, making them less bold and overpowering. I kept thinking they might look like a 50's diner booth material, however they are the perfect red they don't stand out. They are extremly comfortable and seem to be quite well made. Once again, high marks for Overstock and their products. Peter from Jersey...
These look exactly like the picture so you will not be disappointed. Putting them together at first was a real chore and the directions didn't make it easier. It seemed like the holes did not line up when attaching the seat. But we figured out if you attach the center bolts first it bends the chair just enough to make the corner holes line up perfectly. The seats are well padded so very comfortable but solid enough that you do not sink into them when seated...just perfect!
These chairs were exactly what I needed for a pub table I have. The color made the set pop and looks beautiful. I put these chairs together myself. The first one did take a little time, as the instructions are written in very poor English. The second chair took about 15 minutes. A hint: The long bolts go in the 4 holes on the back corner of the seat, into the chair back. The medium length bolts go in the center back of the seat to attached it to the back and the shortest screws go in the front of the seat to attach the front legs. Also, watch the braces. While the front brace is easy, the side braces are shaped to fit the curves. The front of the brace goes towards the straight front leg, the back of the braces are curved to match the back legs. Be sure to have the left and right brace on the correct side. Once you figure the bolts and the braces out, the rest is a breeze. They are very sturdy and I am very pleased with the order.

My husband and I were tempted to by similar barstools in a discount store but decided to come home and check overstock first. So glad we did! These chairs are beautiful, and were $40 less. We've only had them a few weeks and everyone who has seen them immediately comments on how much they like them. The best part; they are super comfortable and easy to clean (we have a 1 yr old and 2 yr old... must wipe off sticky fingerprints daily). I'd love to purchase just one more to complete our breakfast bar.
Love these chairs BUT putting them together was kinda tough..the seats were a breeze to put onto the legs..only problem came when trying to screw together the legs with the supports in between..the holes were not drilled correctly and the screws were too short..after many trips to the tool box we finally got them sturdy enough to sit on..directions were pretty straight forward..otherwise they look great and are comfy

We were looking for inexpensive stools for our teenage boys rec room. They were challenging to put together (and we've put a LOT of Overstock furniture together) and the quality overall just didn't seem great. We ordered a pair, thinking we'd order a 2nd pair if we liked them - we do not like them enough to get 2 more and will find something else. We've told the kids to be gentle with them because they don't seem like they'll hold up to a lot of abuse. We'll see! That said, they were pretty cheap for a stool with a back (boys insisted on it) so you get what you pay for.

I was very excited when my new stools arrived but when we tried to put them together, it took quite a bit of time and the legs weren't quite level. Then about 3 months of use, the springs in two of the stools broke and poked down and then the seats sagged so my husband had to repair them. The faux leather is holding up very well, tho, and I really like they way they look in my kitchen.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color shown online is very acurate--bright red.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I ordered 4 stools and so far 2 of the 4 stools have "sprung" their springs. My husband had to repair them, which was rather difficult, and he was not too pleased.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
Very dissatisfied. The springs popped out of the bottoms and the backs are broke. Not even a year old! Stay away!!!

i was very nervous about the purchase of bar stools on line(or anything for that matter). They came on time and were easy to assemble. This was my first purchase from overstock.com and i will definatley be back. These stools are great! just what the room needed.
I just go these today and it took me two hours to put them together but it was worth it. They are gorgeous! I currently have a natural color island but i think they would go best with a white island, wished I had gotten that one. They are beautiful counter chairs. I love the color. Its not a very bright red, its just right.
I am very happy with the counter height chairs. The color is more burgundy than it appears, but I like it. My grown children and their friends have commented that the chairs are very comfortable. They are the perfect finish to our new kitchen.
Just what I wanted. After spending a good month looking for stools for my new kitchen counter I saw these. Read the reviews. Bought them. Loved them. While the reviews indicated that the Red color in the pictures was not as severe as depicted I was worried. But - trust in your fellow shoppers. The color of these is nowhere near as bright red as shown but instead was more of the cranberry color I was looking for to match my new cabinetry. The assembly of the stools was very straight forward and except for one missing bolt (easily replace at my local hardware) I had them all setup in about 3-4 hours. One snag was that the supplied (pre-installed) leg tips (plastic) are not good if you have hardwood floors. Go get those stick on felt pads and replace them asap! All in all - a great buy for the price.
I love these chairs! The red color looks just like ad, the quality is excellent, and they're just the right height for eating at the counter. The only downside - it took a while to put the first one together but less time for the other one once we knew how to do it. It was worth the time. Love them!
Little hard to put together. They had to be adjusted after being put together. Some of the holds didn't line up right. Suggestion don't tighten screws all the way before everything is put together. Go back and tighten them up after all screws are in.
Love the counter stools. They assembled easily, are sturdy, and are a perfect height for the kitchen island. The wine red works very well with the curtains and spices up the room. Very comfortable and a hit with everyone who sees them.
I know, I know. "You get what you pay for." But these were such a great deal and so stylish, I couldn't help myself. I should have known better than to keep them when I received my order and one of the chair backs was broken. Overstock was awesome, as usual, about sending out a replacement. Once we got the new back, the chairs were assembled and ready for use. I love the color. It adds the perfect amount of "pop" to the kitchen. And the faux leather doesn't look TOO faux. These chairs were the perfect height for our island counter and they are nice and wide, which is why I bought them in the first place--so my kids (ages 6 and 3) would be able to sit at the island and color or eat breakfast while I was in the kitchen. And I just want to point out, these stools have only been used by my small children. Nevertheless, one side of the back on one of the chairs broke after less than a year (in the same place the first one was broken) and has remained a bit cockeyed ever since. The chair was still sturdy enough for kids, even with the broken back, so we didn't worry too much about it. Then about two months ago we noticed both chairs bulging a bit in the center of the seat and realized the springs were starting to poke through. Then this morning, when my six year old sat down on the chair (the one WITHOUT the broken back) the middle spring popped out completely through the bottom. I've noticed the price on these chairs has increased almost $50 since I purchased them a year and a half ago, which I find puzzling that they would increase the price on a product that is so poorly constructed and cheaply made that they won't last two years before you'll have to throw them away. BUYER BEWARE!!
