I really dislike the "put it together" furniture as a whole, but based on the reviews on these stools, decided to take a chance. Yes, they were a pain to put together, but they look incredible and I'm glad I did get them after all. So, the pros:They look incredible. The fabric is high quality and should wear well. The are VERY comfortable. They sit level, for the most part. FOLLOW the DIRECTIONS!!!! If you wait to tighten the screws until you have it set upright on the floor, gravity does a remarkable job of helping level them as you tighten. Also, don't tighten any group of screws all together. Work your way around the chair tightening and they will remain level. The wood is beautiful and the height is perfect for counter-height.The cons:Putting furniture together is just a pain. One of the 4 that I got was missing a bolt, but they gave me an extra of another size. It fit in the hole but is too long. Luckily it doesn't show.So, overall good value, good quality, and not the worst thing to put together. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE LETTER.
I am very pleased with the overall product. Only gave 4 stars for Workmanship and Ease of Assembly as there was 1 screw in each stool that did not fit. However, my husband had some on-hand that fit perfectly. These barstools are heavy and I fit well under my bar. The seats are wide and comfortable. I am not afraid for my younger grandchildren to sit in them because I doubt they will be able to 'wiggle' and turn them over. The upholstery is very nice and I can see lots of years of use in them. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone.
The worst quality I have seen. Shoddy materials, terrible....no, non existant directions. Overstock should be ashamed to sell these chairs.

I had been looking for kitchen counter stools for some time and found most to be fairly expensive. When I ran across these on Overstock, I was very excited. They arrived promptly and I loved the colors of the stripes (hues of gold/brown, grey, black and cream). They were fairly easy to assemble, very comfortable and look great in the kitchen. The only slight disappointment that I have is (as other purchasers have described), the fabric on the back of the stools aren't as taunt as I would like for them to be. It's barely noticable and not enough for me to return them. I do have some concerns as to how stain resistent they will be given they are located at my kitchen counter and I do work there a lot. I'm leaning towards scotch guarding them... Overall, these are very nice stools for the money and I am satisfied with my purchase.

These chairs look perfect with the Granite in my kitchen. All the colors in the stripes are the colors in the granite. Could not be more perfect. The fabric does not seem durable. One chair came with a spot that looked like bleach was spilled on it [that isn't what happened... it's just how it was dyed, I believe]. I have 4 stools but there are only two of us, so I rotate the chairs to even out the use.
I ordered four chairs and two were damaged. One had a very large splinter on the foot rest and one had the black stripe bleeding into the cream strip of the back rest. I returned all four because I had one damaged from each box but OS only refunded me the full price for one box and charged me shipping for the other box. So a damaged product and I end up out of pocket.

My favorite chairs, the comfort and quality are great. I want to order a couple more of these. I get compliments on them all the time and they add a little zing to my kitchen. You will love these!

I'm very happy with these chairs! The print is nice - adds some style but not over the top. The color is a bit brighter in real life, and at first I thought it might be too much for the space. But it has really grown on me and now I absolutely love the look. As others have mentioned, the assembly directions are horrible, but fortunately my husband is good at these types of projects so I just let him take care of it. If I'd been on my own it would have taken forever. They seem very sturdy and well made, especially at this great price!
I love my pub stools. Sturdy enough to hold this 200lb woman. It took about 1 hour to assemble both stools, without my husbands help. We are constantly complemented on how cute they are. The only issue is the height of the stools are not the standard bar stool height (they are shorter) - but it was my fault for not paying closer attention to the measurements. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and it's been over 2 years.
I ordered 2 sets of these chairs. Within a few weeks, one of the chairs broke...i chalked it up to my husband being a little to rough with them. However, a second chair just broke last week. These are pretty chairs, and assembly is average (some holes dont line up perfectly and you have to use a little muscle). But the screws get loose very easily and you constantly need to tighten them. If you are very gentle on furniture, these might be ok for you, unfortunately we are not.
Nice enough chairs for the price but no special value, nor did I feel the quality or the workmanship was anything other than average. They include one tiny bottle of glue that might be enough for 2 of the 8 spots that need it. I tried using just a little on each but it doesn't seem to be enough. I have small gaps in the connections where I ran out of glue.
these counter stools are awesome. Look great, very comfortable and sturdy. I work from home often, and usually sit at my kitchen counter most of the day. Perfect height. And we get tons of compliments. Beautiful color combination, and goes well with our interior. I only needed three, but bought two sets, so if one chair wears out,, I have a spare waiting in the garage to replace it. Couldn't beat the price.
I like them alot HOWEVER, they are not bar height as it says in the description. As I have recently learned, "Bar height" is typically 29-30" from seat to floor, "counter height" is tyupically 22-24". These are 24" so I would not consider it bar height. I am very disappointed as I really liked them once they arrive but they are 5 inches too short. Great for kitchen counters or high top tables.
My sister got these counter chairs for her kitchen. They were used everyday and did not make it through 2 years. The seat cushion padding did not hold up and became saggy, lumpy, and uncomfortable to sit on. If you are planning to really use these chairs and not just have them sat on occasionally, you may want to pass on these.
