I was looking for a good stool and this was it. It's a great sturdy stool. Easy to assemble.

The stools we bought appear to be completely black on the website. When we received them they had a reddish tint around the edges. After much thought we decided to keep them. But, we would have been more satisfied if the product we received was exactly as it was portrayed on the website.

The assembly was easier when I put the entire stool together without the screws, then fastened with the screws, rather than doing one side at a time as per the directions. Assembling one side first tended to make alignment of side two more difficult.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color as pictured, with some hand-applied "distressing"
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good, sturdy

we like the stools very much. They need floor guards on the bottoms of each four legs to protect wood floor. The hubby enjoys one of these for his closet to put his shoes on each morning and the other one is a little side table to his recliner but both will be a huge help with extra seats when the grand kids visit for meal time! Useful and nice looking. Thanks O.com!
These were the style of stool I was looking for and I found many on the internet. A pair that was cheaper didn't get good reviews for quality so I chose these. These were a very good price and I am very pleased with the quality.. I was concerned about the reviews that said that the base was red so the distressed sections showed the red paint. I found that the red paint that showed through was very minor and looks like a reddish wood. These were perfect for what we were looking for -- table height stools that would fit under a table for extra seating.
I was looking for stools for my kitchen bar which is not the high bar level. It is very difficult to find stools that are this size that are so very stylish. I like the saddle seat as it is more comfortable than the round seats. They add an amazing style to my kitchen bar. They do have a little reddish tone around the edges but not that noticible. They both have random slits or slices in the top edges of each side of the seats which are part of the style. At first I thought it was a flaw until we put together the second one and saw that this is part of the design. I am very please with them and the price was right for me.
If you are looking for the best price and quality in a new stool, these will fit the bill. I looked local, craigs, ebay and for the price and for the quality these are great. I advise using a drill to make the assembly quicker. Seriously, this is an Overstock that sits well with your expectations.
Purchased these for the other side of our farm table to get rid of chairs. One box had damaged pieces which Overstock very promptly replaced. Absolute perfect experience with the customer care group -- got the replacement parts and was able to complete the assembly. One note, take heed to the directions (not only when assembling) but also the recommendation to periodically check to ensure all of the connections are tight. I have almost six year old triplets and they are hard on these stools -- so far so good!
