I was expecting a higher quality product than what I received based on the previous reviews, images of the stool and the price paid.. The four legs may be solid wood but the seat itself appears to be a veneer of some type. It looks just like something you can get at a big warehouse store (particleboard with a veneer slapped on top) for a whole lot less money. Many reviewers were impressed with the quality of the packaging. I am assuming that it is so well packaged so that it doesn't break apart into a bunch of particleboard chunks during transport. While not shown anywhere in the packaging, I can only believe this is something that was made in China. It looks rather cheap. I will be returning it. I am very disappointed with my very first purchase experience at Overstock.com
When I unpacked the chairs, I noticed the looked smaller than expected.....but when I sat in the chair, I felt extremely cramped. Needless to say, I am definitely a small person. I checked the advertised sizes and confirmed the chairs are listed at 19 inches wide. I took out my tape measure and the seat came out at just under 13.5 inches wide. With that, you have just over 11 inches in width to place your feet on the iron bar to rest your. They very small, feel smaller......because they are literally tiny.
the chairs arrived relatively quickly & just in time for thanksgiving. two out of three were, however, broken in similar ways. both had chunks of the seat back cracked off. i didn't even pull the last one out of the box, as i could feel that the piece had broken off. visual inspection of the interior of the product let me to believe that the wood was not so great & that there was really just glue holding them together. attractive, but not such great quality, especially for the price. customer service was great & handled the return for me at no cost, since most of the chairs were broken.
Chair packaged VERY poorly. Back of chair was in multiple pieces. Nearly $XXX - The wood quality is very poor as well based on the grain and texture and since in multiple pieces I was able to see the wood within as well. I would have expected it to be more dense instead very light and brittle. Scuffs on the legs as well. I wanted this chair to work out but it was very cheaply made. Would MAYBE pay $XX-XX- MAX.
These stools are very sturdy and awesome! They have the perfect rustic/industrial feel. They are quite narrow. I ended up returning them because I really needed a higher back to be substantial for my vaulted ceilings/lodge look. BUT, I really wanted to like them in my space, because they are so cool!
Some of the reviews here made me hesitant to purchase these stools, but I couldn't be happier that I did! The quality exceeded my expectations. These are HEAVY, well-made stools that couldn't look any cooler. Exactly what I needed for my new all white, modern rustic kitchen!
We love the rustic look of these chairs. We've got 3 kids and feel like they are very sturdy and will last a long time in our home. We even had one show up broken during the shipping but they sent a replacement right away. We are very happy customers!
We LOVE these stools! They are high quality and look very high end. We ordered 3 and one came damaged. I emailed o.co and they sent a replacement stool immediately. I have had quite a few compliments on these stools! They are perfect for COUNTER height, if you have a bar height counter or bar you will need to get the taller stools.
I have had these since May. They have been in box until today, due to kitchen remodel. I left unopened in box til now to keep from being damaged. Should have checked them out when first came. For the money, I was expecting excellent quality. They seem well made to an extent....but....they have chips & gouges all over them. I know it didn't happen during shipping...they were double boxed & the boxes were not damaged. Soooo.....very unhappy since way to late to return.
