It may be too early to tell (i.e. we haven't been able to perform a "test run" in rainy weather yet), so far we're very happy with our 4 barstools! Sturdy, gorgeous, well-constructed. We had the hardest time trying to find a nice, ARMLESS barstool for outdoor use, almost all of the nicer looking ones we saw were for indoor use only. And for a nice price. Assembly time was about 10 minutes. W/ respect to function, they swivel very easy. Also, they're not clunky, but very easy to move/maneuver. Of note, to some eyes the seat cushion may appear green on screen. Instead they're more of an oatmeal/wheat color.
