For the money, these are great bar stools. I prefer the dark, natural steel color of the originals that can be bought at Design within Reach, but for 20% of the price, these fit the bill. The color is pretty much what you see in the pictures, light silver/gray. Keep in mind they are powder coated, not natural metal finish. They do match well with stainless steel appliances. We have wood floors, so the rubber feet are a plus. The undersides of the stools also have rubber spacers so they can be stacked and not scratch the other stool. The box ours arrived in was a little beat up, and I have found a little ding on each stool (not necessarily from the packaging), but its not enough to worry about a return or exchange. Again, for the money, these are great stools, probably worth more than the $** we paid for them. Overall, I am very pleased with them and recommend them for anyone looking for a funky barstool at a good price.
The stools arrived a little different than I expected. In the photo they looked a little "vintage" or "steel-ish"to me. They arrived very sleek and powder-coated a silver metallic. Nice bar stools, very sturdy, but not what I was looking for. They are going back tomorrow.
Nothing wrong with them, but they don't fit in well with my decor. They were delivered promptly and are sturdy, but their particular shade of silver doesn't work for me and returning them is not worth the trouble. The problem with buying online I guess.
The structure of these stools is great, they look exactly like the original tolix stools. However, they are painted silver and are not a bare metal finish which is what I wanted. I stripped the paint off of mine, and they look way better. The silver paint makes them look cheap to me. They should just leave them bare metal and coat them.
We just received these 20 of these stools for our lunch room at work. They are modern looking and real sturdy. We were looking at other stools just like these but they were from France and cost $250.00 each. I was impressed with the fast delivery and shipping cost was next to nothing! Thanks for the great service!
These Tabouret 30-inch Metal Barstools are a great value. Color is exactly what I was looking for. Style is perfect. They are super strong and extremely sturdy. They were packaged perfectly and delivered within a few days. This was a super purchase from Overstock.com!
These are very sturdy. You should be aware that they are basically silver painted which put me off at first, though I should have known from the pics. I would have considered black if they offered the 30" height in black. Overall I am very pleased with these. I have granite that is primarily grey tones (including the bar area) as well as bright stainless appliances and island in my kitchen, and these match well. The rubber feet are very nice, they came no assembly required and were packed nicely. I weigh 220 and have stood on one as a step stool to reach a high cupboard. Very comfortable to sit on as well.
These bar stools are functional and sturdy. Due to the list price, I expected them to appear upscale. They don't. They look like something you would find in an old warehouse. I would expect to pay $30 to $40 a piece. If you are looking for function, these are fine. If you are looking for something that appears at all high end, these are not for you
Great modern/industrial sturdy barstools for a great price. Only downsize was that I was surprised that they were a powder-coated finish because it looked more like a true metal finish. Also didn't realize that they stack which is a nice bonus, if you're ever needto move them out of the way for mopping, etc. My god-children ages 3 and 4, easily climb up these as well.
i have a major crush on these stools! My partner and I love having them in our office (we have a shared counter-height workspace). They are really spectacular to look at (definitely fit in with our vintage/industrial look) and comfortable to sit on. My one very minor complaint is that the lower foot rest is slightly too low for my petite frame, but my boyfriend is 5'10" and has no problem. They are SUCH a good value for the money!
I bought these stools for my breakfast bar and I am overall happy with my purchase. They came in one piece, on time, and seem sturdy. My only disappointment was with the color. I thought that they would be unfinished metal, but they are actually painted with a glittery metallic paint. They look fine from a distance, but up close, they remind me of my brother's car. Considering the price, they are still a great deal.
Great stools! They were exactly what I wanted. I saw similar stools that were priced at $245.00 each so getting two for $** was a real bargain! These stools are sturdy, good-looking, and give my dining room bistro table a real retro feel. I also use them at my kitchen counter eat-in area. I liked them so much that I ordered two more. If you're looking for this type of stool, get these!
