As a sports car enthusiast, I have a strong attraction to anything that comes in molded ABS plastic and chrome. And actually, sitting in this truly awesome, super cool, ultra slick and potentially postmodern stool is kind of like chillin' on the grille of my Audi S4, except with a little more lower back support -- and a footrest. In fact, I've spent countless hours sitting in this stool teaching my 2-year-old how to make a “vroom vroom!!!” sound so that whenever I'm sitting at the breakfast bar and he's on my lap, we pretend we're driving in a demolition derby! But in fact, we’re just driving my wife crazy.
I received the stools about 5 days after I ordered them. Pretty fast for the size of the package. I was surprised at how lightweight they were and worried that they might not be of solid construction. However, they are very sturdy --as long as you plan on using them on a hard floor. I had set them up in the living room on the carpet and they were really rickety to sit on. DO NOT GET THESE FOR A CARPTETED ROOM! Once behind the kitchen counter on the hardwood floor, though, they were excellent The stools raise and lower smoothly and quickly. The ease of assembly was amazing. It is a 3-step process and the stools arrived with steps 1 and 2 already done in the box. You simply just plop the seat and column into the base and it's done! The chrome is high quality and there were no nicks or scratches. I am not sure how strong the footrest is, and I am not going to test it by stepping off of it with all of my weight to get off the stool. It looks solid and is one piece welded into a collar around the column. The welds are done so well that without closer review you would think it is one molded piece of metalwork. Finally, the black seat is actually a glittery black --much like a Metallic Midnight Black that you would find on a new car. It just happens to go even better with the black Granite countertop in my kitchen, with all of the minute specks of Quartz and Mica embedded in it. The stools are about as comfortable as a chunk of plastic could be, but if you're like me you are not looking for comfort. You want an image. Anyways, how long do you plan to sit in one of these? These stools are the finishing touch for a very chic and classy kitchen bar. Overall, a very nice product at a reasonable price.
For the price, I think we got what we paid for. I'm not sure they're supposed to squeek but they do. They look really cool though! They go very well with the stainless table that I use as an island. I'm glad I got them. I didn't want to pay too much for now, so they serve their purpose and look cool.

I have a studio apartment where I live alone and the look is minimalist and really modern, the furniture being black and white in the living. I just developed a bar corner to serve drinks whenever I have friends coming over and found these excellent bar stools on Overstock. All six arrived in great quality and the look is amazing.
These are the greatest bar stools I ever had. They are really modern and unique in look and the steel frame is really giving the elegant touch. The stools are really easy to adjust and clean and the price was highly fair and affordable. I ordered three sets and I am fully satisfied with the service and product.
I love my new bar stools. They are definitely unique and not boring, but this is why I ordered them. They have a modern and retro touch in the same piece and match perfectly with the modern and minimalist design of my kitchen. Yes, I ordered them in the kitchen and the look is shockingly great for me. Great price, great quality and really cozy.
We returned these because everyone was afraid to sit on them. They felt wobbly like they would tip over easily. They were not comfortable and felt like they would break if you moved. My husband weighs 170 lbs and when he sat down the first time the plastic seat sounded like it cracked. It was a shame because they were very sharp looking. Loved the style but was not happy with the quality.
