Like it says in the title - I could not be happier. I read the reviews and thought I knew what to expect - perhaps "a knock-off that wasn't quite the real thing but, hey, its cheap"! In fact it is a reproduction of the much more expensive French original, a reproduction that is all but perfect. (I also bought the arm chairs - and have the same view of them - so the reviews are pretty much a cut and past copy!)
They are slick, comfortable, attractive and sturdy. The black gloss paint is perfect with a very nice shine. They stack - but I don't want to stack them - they are so cute all glossy straight from the box!
No dents, scratches or flaws at all. The black paint job is deep and shiny. The packing was through and secure, I just loved them from the moment I unpacked them. And the price - what can one say except - sorry France, the design for these stools may have originated in your land some 100 years ago but the current place to have them made is China. (Sorry, but its true). [You can check the French prices online via *** dot com or at the French manufacturer's website - check and then come back to O.co!]
If this style suits you (and its not for everyone - Grannies and certain suburbs - I mean you!) then you shouldn't hesitate, snap them up. I have mine in a minimalist - loft style place in the country in Northern California and I would post pix if I could.

I just received the stools in black. I absolutely love them; they greatly exceed my expectations. They are solid, sturdy, and nicely finished. I don't understand why anyone would buy the Tolix in black rather than these; I would assume that the finish on a black Tolix would also be paint., rather than the natural metal of the silver/gunmetal.
Thank you Overstock.com. Once again the product and the service are outstanding.

I was very pleased to have received the shipment of my new stools promptly. Although the web site said it will arrive bet. 7-14 days, I got them in 5. The stools are handsome, sturdy, with rubber feet so as not to damage my wood floors. I am very happy with my purchase.

We ordered 2 sets of stools. 1 stool in each box was badly dented. The other stools were not dented, but there were obvious imperfections in the paint. I was disappointed - 4 out of 4 stools were bad enough to return. Needless to say, I didn't request replacements. I have always been pleased with Overstock.com products, so this is a first. These seemed like factory seconds, not overstocks.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? black is pretty much black, but the paint was very shiny which was not obvious in the pictures
When I see something I love in a store, I now go to Overstock first to see if I can find it there and save some money. I'm so glad I did - I picked these up for half of what a local retailer had them priced at. They arrived quickly in perfect condition - sweet!
My only wish for this product is 2 more inches in heights. They are standard size from what I gather, so I must have unstandard stools previously. I bought pillows to pop on top and I am good to go. Really changes the way my room looks. Good value for the money.
My husband liked the style but thought they were plastic at first glance because of the high shine. They tuck under the snack bar and give a clean line to the area.
The weight of the stool is perfect. Going to keep them.
Are these stools actually 24 inches high or a little under 24. Also, are the 30 inch ones exactly 30 inches high to the top of the seat?achris37 on Feb 17, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi achris37, all measurements are approximate give or take an inch or less. Our measurements are taken with the overall measurements in mind therefore our 30 inch stool measures 30 inches from the ground to the top of the seat itself. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 19, 2014
