I had never purchased anything from this website before. I was skeptical because of the price of the stools. Read the reviews and gave them a try. Very impressed. They were easy to put together. No issues with wobbly legs--very sturdy and comfortable. The added cloth bottom that velcros to the underside of the seat gives a nice finished/professional look. Another nice feature that I did not notice on the pictures on the web...a metal cover that goes on the front rung so if someone puts their shoes on it, no scratching or need for touch up pen. Another attention to detail to save the wood. Very nice!
Given the price, value is reasonable, but pretty cheap construction. "Leather" looks decent, "brass" footrest on one side is tacked on with very short screws, one broken and half of others put in at an angle...poor. Balance of legs is okay, but directions suggesting to slam it on the floor to get legs even is questionable! Overall, may last if not used too much, but we'll see....
After returning a similar style bar stool to a local store because the cushion sank so low you felt like a child eating at the counter, we were hesitant to buy something on-line without being able to try it out. We sat on many stools in stores and couldn't find what we wanted. But with the great price, the great return policy, and the previous positive reviews we decided to give these a try. The stools are high quality and the seat is FIRM and comfortable, which is exactly what we were looking for. The height is 25.5 inches, doesn't sink when you sit on it and perfect for our counter. Assembly was a bit difficult on one and easy on the other because the parts didn't seem to fit so well on one, but eventually it came together and the results were worth it. We are very pleased and may try another style in the same brand too.
They look great and are comfortable to sit on. More comfortable than the Williams Sonoma Italian crafted stools they replace at half the price. The stools do wobble a bit despite having followed assembly instructions compulsively. The wobble however disappears when sat upon.
Was very surprised at the quality for the price. Stools look great, many compliments and inquiries to where I got them. It was stated that the legs on these stools were black. I was worried a bit about the black legs not matching my espresso furniture, but to my surprise the legs were espresso after all. Great!!!
I ordered four of these stools about 3 months ago and although the quality was not stellar I was pleased with the leather seat, the stability and the style. I ordered two more of these to have extras for guests and when they arrived even though the description was the same (brown leather with espresso legs) the wood was definitely black and the height of the stools was 3/8" to 1/2" taller.
product was great, however we were not sent all of the hardware to put the stools together. And when extra hardware was sent it was the incorrect size and product. We sent in another concern and were never answered back. We ended up going to XXXX XXXXX and purchasing the correct hardware so we could use the stools.
I had ordered 1 set of ivory and 1 set of espresso but got 2 sets of ivory. Fred on "chat" solved my problem and was Mr Excellent! The stools come with "Chinglish" instructions so be patient and look at the picture and you will have no problems putting these together. The instructions even add a bit of levity to the situation. The ivory leather is lovely and the stools are sturdy yet easy to move around. They slide under the bar when not in use and as long as you are prudent getting on and off there is no better value. Very pleased with both the stools and the customer service. I guess you can say we entered an Alfred plea with no one really admitting a mistake but "Fred" really took care of me and, you could say, he made my day as did the stools.
Great stools for the price but they were delivered with little to no protection so the legs were a bit scratched. Not too big of a deal for me but if you're picky, you may be taking a chance with the shipping. The made in Vietnam sticker is also ridiculously sticky...why would they make it so sticky?!
I purchased these stools to replace some wooden ones that were starting to fall apart. I was pleased that they were delivered really quick - they did require assembly (attaching legs to seat cushion). The botton of the cushion even has a small piece of fabric that velcros to cover up the hardware under the seat. They are comfortable to sit in and if you ask me they were a GREAT price. I have seen similar items in the in the store for $*** each. The only reason that I am not giving 5 stars is that there seemed to be some type of mistake with the parts put together in the warehous. Each of of the stools has one metal foot rest. One of the stools came with two, and one came with none. It can be fixed, but it would require me taking a set of legs apart to do so.
We were looking for inexpensive backless stools and these looked great. Very happy with the product- easy to put together and no issues with wobbling or having to drop the stools to get them to fit together. I put together 4 in about an hour. They are easy to wipe off and just the right height for our new kitchen counter. The metal footrest is a nice additional feature. Only complaint is that the plastic feet on the bottoms scratched my new hardwood floors. We had to pry them off and replace with felt pads which solved the problem perfectly.
I really like these. The price was right and I like the white seats. I need to lighten up my place. These were easy to put together but the screws that went in the side bars seemed like they were stripped because you couldn't screw them in. I used wood glue.
