I was hesitant to purchase chairs online-I wrote down the measurements from the product description and compared them to counter stools I found in local furniture stores ( which were priced significantly higher!). The mixed reviews also had me concerned....but I ordered 4 chairs and hoped for the best. Couldn't' be happier with them! The hardware was neatly contained in a plastic bag, and everything was well padded. No damage whatsoever. The tiny wrench that is included is not helpful-we used a power drill with screwdriver bit, and assembly was very easy. True, the "distressed" finish is not what I would consider to be artistically distressed, but with 4 grandchildren under the age of 4, they will be naturally distressed in no time!

These stools look beautiful. Unfortunately the box arrived in such poor condition that I wasn't able to put them together. It was taped with one small piece of packing tape across the side of the box (not down the long opening) and the parts inside were loosely moving around and not wrapped. I pulled one broken piece out before I gave up and called to set up a return. In the end I think the stools may have been too oversized for my counter island area anyway, but they really were beautiful and I loved the curve back design. Not sure if Overstock was at fault for the condition of the item/box or UPS, but nevertheless Overstock was amazing about processing a return and I had the refund back in my paypal within 2 business days. UPS never came back for the box so sadly we had to put the entire thing out with the trash. :(
These chairs are quite time consuming to put together but look very nice. I would buy them again.

We four of these bar stools, as well as the matching kitchen table and chairs for our informal eat in kitchen area. We have had the furniture for two months, and everything looks great. The bar stools are very easy to assemble, and are very sturdy once put together, and are even comfortable to sit in. This set looks way more expensive than it was, this is a very nice set, and it is very well priced.
Just received the chairs and assembled them last night. You can tell during assembly whether you bought something of high quality or not. I was impressed with their quality.

This was a beautiful upgrade to my kitchen, however they scratch and ding easily. I would also mention, that they were extremely difficult and time consuming to assemble and they don't stay assembled very well... They are constantly dropping screws and we have to hunt down where they came from and reinsert them. The finished product looks exactly like the picture, but I wouldn't purchase again.
Two things: I only needed 3 stools so was disappointed that they sold in pairs. Second--the assembly was torturous because the screws and holes were not lined up properly and as a consequence my husband chipped a big hunk of wood off the leg!! Very upsetting.
I purchased these chairs and refinished them in a red chalk paint. They look amazing in my kitchen around our island (I wish I could post a pic). They arrived fairly quickly, loved the free shipping, and were in great shape. I originally put them together wrong because the instructions are a little rough as far as detail goes, but I figured it out and proceeded on. We have been using them now for a few weeks and they are holding up quite nicely. There are foot pads on 2 of the legs but not on the other two, so that would have been a nice addition. I give only 4 stars because it would be great to have more detailed instructions and foot pads on all legs. Other than that, you CANNOT beat the price!!
