I really dislike the "put it together" furniture as a whole, but based on the reviews on these stools, decided to take a chance. Yes, they were a pain to put together, but they look incredible and I'm glad I did get them after all. So, the pros:They look incredible. The fabric is high quality and should wear well. The are VERY comfortable. They sit level, for the most part. FOLLOW the DIRECTIONS!!!! If you wait to tighten the screws until you have it set upright on the floor, gravity does a remarkable job of helping level them as you tighten. Also, don't tighten any group of screws all together. Work your way around the chair tightening and they will remain level. The wood is beautiful and the height is perfect for counter-height.The cons:Putting furniture together is just a pain. One of the 4 that I got was missing a bolt, but they gave me an extra of another size. It fit in the hole but is too long. Luckily it doesn't show.So, overall good value, good quality, and not the worst thing to put together. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE LETTER.
I am very pleased with the overall product. Only gave 4 stars for Workmanship and Ease of Assembly as there was 1 screw in each stool that did not fit. However, my husband had some on-hand that fit perfectly. These barstools are heavy and I fit well under my bar. The seats are wide and comfortable. I am not afraid for my younger grandchildren to sit in them because I doubt they will be able to 'wiggle' and turn them over. The upholstery is very nice and I can see lots of years of use in them. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone.
I had been looking for kitchen counter stools for some time and found most to be fairly expensive. When I ran across these on Overstock, I was very excited. They arrived promptly and I loved the colors of the stripes (hues of gold/brown, grey, black and cream). They were fairly easy to assemble, very comfortable and look great in the kitchen. The only slight disappointment that I have is (as other purchasers have described), the fabric on the back of the stools aren't as taunt as I would like for them to be. It's barely noticable and not enough for me to return them. I do have some concerns as to how stain resistent they will be given they are located at my kitchen counter and I do work there a lot. I'm leaning towards scotch guarding them... Overall, these are very nice stools for the money and I am satisfied with my purchase.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was good. I wish the colors were listed in the product description, though.

My sister got these counter chairs for her kitchen. They were used everyday and did not make it through 2 years. The seat cushion padding did not hold up and became saggy, lumpy, and uncomfortable to sit on. If you are planning to really use these chairs and not just have them sat on occasionally, you may want to pass on these.
These chairs look perfect with the Granite in my kitchen. All the colors in the stripes are the colors in the granite. Could not be more perfect. The fabric does not seem durable. One chair came with a spot that looked like bleach was spilled on it [that isn't what happened... it's just how it was dyed, I believe]. I have 4 stools but there are only two of us, so I rotate the chairs to even out the use.
I ordered four chairs and two were damaged. One had a very large splinter on the foot rest and one had the black stripe bleeding into the cream strip of the back rest. I returned all four because I had one damaged from each box but OS only refunded me the full price for one box and charged me shipping for the other box. So a damaged product and I end up out of pocket.
