I love these stools, but if you're looking for something that will hold up well with kids, you might want to keep looking.
We ordered 4 of these for our kitchen island bar. I put all 4 together in less than an hour, with my 5 year old-- so I found them very easy to assemble. AS with most mail-order furniture, the assembly directions were horrid, but it's not rocket science and we figured it out.
We ordered these in white leather. They are even better looking in person than they are in the web photos. Sleek pristine leather, shiny chrome. Eyecathcing.
Kids are drawn to these like moths to a flame. They can't resist raising the seat height to their maximum or spinning round and round and round in the chairs. My 60lb son is not heavy enough to lower the chair back down, though, so most young kids need you to reset the seat height once they've raised it to the full position.
Within a week, the leather was stained and marked from the kids spilling and gouging the leather.
The worst leather damage is from the kids re-adjusting the stool height so that the back of the stool just barely fits under the counter height. Within the first month, I had small tears on the backrests of 2 of thes tools where they had been jammed into the underside of the counter while the kids spun them around like carnival rides. Sorry I don't have much experience with owning leather, so I can't tell you about the quality. I can tell you it is paper thin and seems to tear pretty easily.
AT the first sign of damage, I had the presence of mind to put the 2 least damaged chairs into storage until my children grow manners/brains (which I realize may be a decade or two).
The 2 remaining chairs are used constantly and we've had them for about 9 months now. Leather damage aside, I'm pretty impressed how well they've held up to all the wear and tear of my kids and my dozens (no exageration) of visiting neices and nephews. The hydraulic lift still works great. The chrome is as pristine as the day they arrived (no chipping or dulling). The foot rest has become loose on both chairs and spins around to the wrong side-- but I could chalk that up to lazy assembly skills.
If I had it to do over:
A) I would not choose a bar stool that rotates that also has a back rest-- children constantly spin side to side using the backrest as a manual stop against the edge of the counter (bang, bang, bang) , or worse, as described above, jam the backrest into the underside of the counter.
B) I would not have ordered leather while my kids are so young-- and since I'm in the market for some more chairs, next time I'm going to check out the plastic or stainless versions.
C) Also, I would have used a leather protectant (and or slip covers) before I let the kids touch the chair. Recently I've purchased a leather repair kit, leather cleaner and brightener, and leather protectant spray and I hope to be able to rejuvenate most of the damage, but haven't gotten around to the labor yet.
No regrets though-- they're comfortable, good looking despite the damage, especially for their price. Good luck hope this helped.
This product is just as advertised or better. I do believe it is best suited to be used as a counter stool for it does get a bit less stable in the highest height setting. I am using them at 26-28 inches from top of seat to floor. They work great with small children since you can seat them at the perfect height due to their adjustible feature. Being vinyl makes them another great choice with children. I have 3-yr-olds and they climb onto and out of the stools by themselves without tipping them over. Any barstool of this type would work best on a hard surface like hardwood rather than carpet. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and believe the quality makes them appear much more expensive. Whether you are a "function first" or "form first" person, you'll love these because they seem to be the perfect fusion of both. Being a person who reads instructions, I was not impressed with the ones that came with my stools; however, the stools were so easy to assemble that afterward I understood why they supplied so little. There's only one way to put them together and very few parts. Be careful not to slice into them when opening the box or removing the plastic.
Two of the stools are currently in our modern kitchen and they not only look perfect there, they are extremely functional. My husband and I now use the kitchen bar a lot more, so much more in fact that it feels kind of like we gained a new space. These stools are exceedinly comfortable -- we sit in them for meals. for reading, having drinks, whatever! The air hydraulic piston works like a dream -- smooth sailing all the way.
The seats are uncomfortable and are on the smaller size. We measured the diameter and if your bottom is close to 14" do not buy this chair. It's a good thing we're petite folks otherwise I would have returned the product. The style is nice and the adjustable seat is easy to use. You get what you pay for with this low price for 2 bar stools.
Could not be more pleased. I shopped around and these chairs are not only well made the price was very good. I have received many compliments on them and have had them for a few months and am still satisfied. I use them around a pub table that I had and they look perfect with it.

I gave it 4 stars because of the price! For the price of 2 this is a steal! The design doesn't look cheap I have it on my island and it's one of the first thing people see when they enter the house. It's modern and the design is simple. However, the seating part is kind of hard and not as cushiony as I hoped it would be, but that's fine to me since most bar stools are not soft anyways. And like I said before I had to ship mine back because the adjustable pumps were not working on both of them therefore I can't adjust the stools up and down. Overstock were completely fine with it and instantly shipped me new ones within a couple of days. The process was easy and I was really impressed with it!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The seats are kind of hard, and we had to return our shipment because the seats were not adjustable.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate.
For some reasons which I donít know obviously, people donít like bar stools. I do like them and I do buy them from time to time. Exactly this happened when Iíve decided to change my old barstools and buy a new set. I wasnít looking for something specific but these adjustable barstools were my style. I placed my order, got the shipment, everything went smooth like a well greased machine. For the record, I am fully satisfied with the service.
