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.

Love the stools, my husband was afraid they were going to look like cheap industrial stools but he was pleasantly surprised. They make our white kitchen complete! We have little ones who move them everywhere and the middle seat opening works perfect for a handle to put them back in their place. Very cool stools! Can't beat the price!
I have these stools in my kitchen and I couldn't be more happy with them. They are sturdy, easy to move and comfortable.
One stool was damaged in shipping so I called the number provided in the box. Along with the number was a note that said "if you have a problem please call us first in an attempt to make it right" (I believe its the direct # of the manufacturer/distributor). A new stool was shipped to me within the week.
I believe a product is only as good as its customer service department. This product's customer service department is outstanding, excellent, five star etc.
I was hesitant to order these counter stools but they work great in my eclectic kitchen! I was afraid they were a little too contemporary but I like them! I've continued the eclectic look all around the house-putting contemporary furniture with antiques. And they look really nice with white cabinets and black countertops! Plus I have a very small space for the stools to fit into! They'll be fun if I ever have any grandchildren that 'll want to sit on them! Hint!
How far apart do the feet stand from one another? What is the footprint of the stool?alotmpls on Sep 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi alotmpls, the overall width and depth are 16 inches. The feet are 16 inches from one another and that is also the foot print for the stool. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 25, 2013
