I purchased these stools for our cottage. After reading the reviews on these stools, I knew I would have to glue them while I put them together. I think they are perfect for where we have them. I do not think they would hold up long on a day to day basis however.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Was a little surprised on the color of cushions. They look more beige against the bright white of the legs. But actually like the contrast for my kitchen.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. They are what I feel I paid for. Don't want to be too rough with them.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? O.K.
The bar stools arrived in good order. They were easily constructed and look very much as advertised. They seem to be sturdy and attractive. They are perfect for what we wanted. They are light weight and slip out of the way under the countertop easily.
For the overall price/quality/style the product is good. It looks good and comfortable. There we're, however, two additional screws missing. I bought additional ones in the local store. Otherwise, it does what it says on the tin.
First off, read the reviews here, they are all right on. The stools are very nice looking, but as others have noted, extremely lightweight. I didn't know much about Rubberwood, and I don't know if it tends to be lightweight, but my research has show that as far as hardness, it's similar to Maple-- softer than Oak, harder than Pine. Although the stools are very lightweight, I don't have any immediate durability concerns.
As I started to assemble the stools, it was immediately apparent that these would have been pretty wobbly without wood glue. Fortunately I took the advice of other reviewers and used Elmers Pro Wood Glue. By the next day the glue was dry and for what they are, they seem pretty stable (I'm 200lbs.).
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Just as described

Hello kitty1957, You can use these outdoors, however we would recommend bringing them in after each use to limit the exposure to rain etc. Thanks for shopping with us. Jennifer Eoverstockcustomercare2 on Jun 1, 2014
