I love these stools! The description says they're brown but the picture is more accurate. It's more of an orange brown, which others have pointed out. I have maple cabinetry and the orange brown color is a perfect complimentary color and a great way to add a more modern color. I wanted something to update my kitchen but not too modern and these stools did the job. I have kids so the faux leather is great for cleaning. They were easy to put together (at least in our experience) and so far has withstood 3 months of continuous climbing up and down from a 3 and 6 year old.

We looked at counter stools everywhere for days on end. The ones we have now are metal and are nice, but we're moving to a retirement community soon and leaving them to the new homeowner, so we wanted something a little different this time around for our new place. We decided on this stool because we felt the color gave good contrast against darker cabinetry and the wood was a darker, richer looking color. We weren't disappointed. We ordered six and they were delivered a day sooner than promised. The only problem we experienced was when my husband began putting them together, he thought something was missing. It turned out the instructions were for a different chair, but he had no problem figuring out how to assemble them. The seat cushion is quite thick and the legs are good and sturdy. These stools are approximately 26 inch seat height which is a little higher than we had before, but they still good good clearance from the counter. The vinyl seems nice and heavy duty and there is nice stitching detail on the seat and back. We are happy with our purchase and the price was more than fair.

For the money, these are nice stools. The assembly was relatively easy and eveything lined up correctly for assembly. They are comfortable and nice looking stools with nice detailed stiching.

These stools were the style and color that we were looking for without breaking the bank, which is exactly what we were looking for. Having said that, the hardware that comes with these stools to put them together is downright terrible!! First, the holes in the front legs didn't line up to the holes in the seat, so I had to use some force (i.e. some taps with a rubber mallet) to get the legs to sit all the way into the seat area so that the holes for the bolts would actually line up. Secondly, the wood screws included are worthless since they're not long enough. I had to go to my local hardware/home improvement store to get longer wood screws so I could install the pieces connecting the legs. I have put together a lot of "lower priced" furniture before, and this is the first time that I've encountered a product where the hardware just plain doesn't work. It was an easy fix, but it's still a fix I should have had to make. The stools feel very solid now, they're reasonably comfortable, and the pleather actually looks good. These stools fit our needs so I wont be returning them but just be aware of what to expect when you decide to buy these.
Stools are just as advertised. Nice caramel-ly color, comfortable, and strong enough to pass the Thanksgiving gathering test. The upholstery is soft and smooth, I would not call it 'worn' or 'brown' though. My only problem with assembly was figuring out which side was right and which was left when inserting the legs. Great chairs.
These chairs do look terrific, the downside is that we had to buy different screws to put the chairs together properly. The one's you send with the chairs do not have enough bite to hold the pieces together tightly. If you weren't a handy person you would just get frustrated,
Either of the chairs alone would be fine alone. But as a set, you would expect them to match (II would still expect that if they weren't a set and I had simply purchased two chairs), and they do not. The bottom bars on one is different than the other when matched to the holes provided for assembly. Too much trouble to return, but will be looking to replace these soon. Most products I've purchased have been fine, but this one is a huge disappointment! Can't recommend these if you're using them together "as a set".
