We loved the designer Tolix stools but didn't want to pay so much. I originally bought the black ones because the metal weren't available. I returned the black ones and now have 4 metal stools around my kitchen island. Know that the metal is metallic paint not raw galvanized steel with a clear coat. This isn't clear on the website. They work well with our stainless appliances though and are SUPER STURDY. My 2 year old can climb up to sit without tipping or wobbling. Good protection for our new wood floor as well. Very good quality. When the real Tolix chairs come in I'll re-post with how well they work with these.
A great product for the price. Arrived on time and well-packaged. The sheen on the metal differs slightly from the photos (it does look more matte in person) but I was prepared for that by other reviews and happy with the product when it arrived. We really like the stools. I'm ordering two more. Was surprised by the 250 lb weight limit. Perhaps that could be listed in the details.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the metal finish is a bit more "plastic" looking in person and not as reflective as in the photos
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good quality for the price!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate. 250 lb weight limit should be stated in the detailed description.
i got exactly what i was expecting to get. from the other reviews, i knew what to expect - that the stools were painted silver, and do not have the shiny bare metal finish like the ones in the pictures. they seem high quality, fit my counter perfectly, and are great for the price (the originals sell for hundreds more each).
I bought a new house about a year ago and it's still half empty. That's because I have a rule that we're not settling for furniture. We wait until we find the perfect piece.These barstools were that perfect piece. And the fact that they were easily half (if not less) the price of other stools I was concidering.....How amazing is that?They look good, fit perfectly under my kitchen island, feel very sturdy and even though I had to buy an extra (I needed 3 and they came in sets of two) it was still a great deal. And the extra one will soon play the role of plant stand or side table or extra seating.
The Tabouret 24-inch Metal Counter Stools were better than I expected. They are very sturdy, the rubber feet prevent my wood floor from scratches and they look great. Although, two had minor dents (The big "O") came through, and the 2 were replaced effortlessly. I am very impressed with the customer service department. It is hard buying items sight-unseen but thus far, I have not been disappointed.
Based on the reviews of this product, I was really disappointed in the real thing. They do not look at all like stainless steel (for those of you hoping to match kitchen appliances), nor do they pull off the trendy "metal" look. The real finish is a glossy, fake-aluminum type effect. Pay attention to the height of the product before you order--- these are only two feet tall! They looked ridiculous in front of my over-sized island. Unfortunately, these will be going back. They just do NOT cut it from a style perspective.
These stools have a great contemporary look. I bought four total of these and spend literally ONE-HALF the price of ONE stool on DWR an expensive designer furniture website making one stool ONE-EIGHTH the price of the designer one. They look exactly the same. Material is different, not sure the metal type of the stool I bought, I do not think it is the steel that the DWR one is made of. But it has that great industrial look that I am going for in my studio.
EXTREMELY pleased with my purchase of the "Taboret Counter Stools" for extra seating in my kitchen. My stools stack nicely in a corner of my kitchen to use when needed. A handle opening is built into the seat, making it easy to move them around. They were packed very well and arrived in perfect condition. I'd highly recommend these stools to any prospective buyer. Great European look for a fraction of the cost! Thanks Overstock!
SO happy with these chairs!! Shopped around and this set was by far the best price, and great value! Free, fast shipping makes for a happy customer :) We have these stools at our granite counter tops in our kitchen. They are easy to move around, are small enough to tuck under the counter, and are very comfortable!!

We ordered these stools for a remodel, they came just as I imagined and we love them!! Our carpenter who is assisting with the wood work in our house asked us where we had gotten them, he said they were VERY well constructed and nice looking. Also, the price is great and I would definitely recommend them!!

I purchased the 2 stools for my counter. I have a tight kitchen with limited space, and these stools fit under the counter perfectly. I can stack them for more room. Great modern look, perfect for small areas and the right size for under counters.

I was pleasantly suprised by the studiness and stablilty of these stools. I was afraid that they might be cheaply made because of the low price point but am really pleased with them. They look great and feel very secure to sit or stand on. If I can think of another place to use them I will definitely buy more.

The stool is exactly what I was looking for - clean look, functional design and comfortable height for my counter. The stackable feature is especially helpful for me with my limited space. They are light, sturdy and well built. The non-skid rubber feet are perfect on my tile floor. I originally got the higher stools and had to send them back, then reorder to get the shorter version I have now. The return process was one of the most efficient and customer friendly returns I have ever dealt with. Every part of the process was clear, prompt and easy.

I am so thrilled with my purchase of these two barstools--the shipping itself makes them a fantastic deal, although I would expect to pay the price for ONE stool at any other location. Even discount stores can't offer this quality at a comparable price. The stools are sturdy and look great--just as nice as some I shopped at a national upscale home furnishings store. I just didn't want to pay over $300 for two stools and shipping.
These stools are just about the hippest think in my home! They are well worth the money and these little stools are mighty strong! I purchased four for our kitchen island, which is a dark stained maple. I wanted a stool that would stand out, not another dark stained stool that would blend into my island. Also, the stools compliment the stainless steel appliances. Excellent purchase!!
