I ordered six of these for my new kitchen island. I am in love with them. Here are some things I like about them: the backs do not reach over the top of the island, so they don't detract from the island; they are light and don't take up a lot of space at the island; they have a funky vintage feel that looks great with the style of my kitchen. They came completely assembled. I am very pleased.
These chairs were perfect - not too wide or too tall. Color goes well with the oil rubbed bronze I have in my kitchen. They are light in weight but seen constructed good. I only needed 3 so I gave 1 to my mother and she ordered two more. The are older and were looking for a stool with a back. They really liked them but they echoed in their space. A chair pad fixed the problem. I do not notice an echo where I am using the chairs.
I am pleased with the barstools, the finish is a bit mottled or uneven but maybe that is to give a “vintage” effect. On the other hand, Overstock customer service is terrible. A week after receiving the barstools, I received an email from Overstock stating that I was eligible for a substantial refund due to a price drop. I immediately called for the refund and was told that offer was only good for 7 days from purchase. I asked why did they send the email when the refund offer was expired. I was put on hold while the rep researched. When she returned to the line, she told I was eligible because the offer is good for 7 days from receipt of purchase. Then I was put on hold again to process the refund. When she returned after 10 minutes, she once again told me that I was not eligible because I had already used a 10% off coupon for my purchase and therefore already received the discount, plus the offer was effective only for 7 days from date of purchase. By the way, the new discounted price is lower than what I paid even with my 10% off coupon. I do not appreciated Overstock getting my hopes up and wasting my time chasing a refund they offered but had no intention of following through on.
We received these chairs on time with no damage. They looked great, but were not quite as comfortable as we had imagined, but that's the risk of buying online. My only complaint is that the back seat edge was extremely sharp. So much so that I almost returned them. The metal on the back edge underneath the seat should have been rolled over to finish it like it is on the other 3 edges, but instead it was left a sharp edge. This could be an issue if you try to pull the chair out and up while grabbing the under-edge of the seat.
