These stools are very light weight. Rustic tops with a more urban base. I ordered five stools and they all have different wood patterns. A couple were wobbly but, it was an easy fix with furniture pads. There are 4 little plastic pieces on the bottom of each to help prevent scratching the floor but I still needed to add little round furniture pads all the way around which was no big deal. They worked great in my kitchen which is traditional. I am only giving these 4 stars because the picture online shows them to have a brown metal base and they are not. The metal is gray. Still a great stool.
Great stools. Gorgeous wood, metal frame looks great. I have three, and I love that they each look a little different. The wood is thick, and the stool is sturdy. I would expect to see these somewhere high-end, and I think the price for the quality is reasonable.
I know some buyers think that if something is light weight, than it must be cheap. This is definitely not the case with this stool. It is VERY sturdy and VERY well made. I know that some manufacturers actually put weights inside products to make them heavy so buyers think they are "quality". (Learned that from Consumer Reports.) I'm glad this company did not do this with this stool. Who wants to lug around heavy stool? The iron is hollow, yes, but there is no way you are going to break this stool in any way. Fit's well with my decor and as a photographer, I find it is very attractive on film. Great product for the money.

I would not recommend the stools at all. They are not solid, but very light. The metal is hollow and discolored and rubs off on anything it touches.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is accurate.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The "iron" is hollow rather than solid and unevenly colored. Plus it discolors anything that touches it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? From the discription, I expected the iron frame to be made of solid iron.
These barstools came assembled, just opened the box and put them under the counter. They are very rustic looking which is the look I was going for. I am very happy with the quality and they seem to be durable. The only complaint I have is that two of the four I ordered are rough on the edges. The barstools will definitely snag yoga pants or tights when getting on the stool.
The top was not placed correctly and we had to dismantle to correct. This is my only complaint.. The weight on these stools is good and makes for a sturdy higher stool. Industrial feel through the base with what is suppose to be a hand hewed look for the seat. As others have noted, best not to sit on with easy to snag clothing. Shipping was great, and the stool well protected. Overstock again had the best price available.. Pleased with my purchase.
The stools look exactly as pictured. I now understand why reviews vary about the texture of the wood; one of the two stools I ordered is smooth, the other a bit rough. These are not the most comfortable stools to sit on, but they look nice and are very sturdy. Overall, I'm pleased.
I purchased this stool to use in a tiny house my husband and I built. Its narrower base fits beautifully with our breakfast bar and it is a handsome looking item. Because the base is as narrow as the seat, the stool does teeter if you are not sitting solidly on the seat. But I have not fallen off and I love the look of it.
Excellent bar stools. The only caveat is that they are lightweight - this is great for us though. I weigh over 225 and they don't begin to groan. They are built very sturdily & would probably handle over 300 # with ease. They look great in the kitchen: matching our dark cabinets & beautifully contrasting the light blue-grey walls! A good purchase!
Light weight yet strong, comfortable and rustic wood seat not slick which makes them easy to sit on. look cool and you can use them as a plant stand if you are short on space. Much lighter than two other stools I have of a similar design
Great looking stool - just as pictured. Surprisingly comfortable. I was concerned the seat diameter would not be conducive for comfort, but I've had no complaints and was able to fit an extra seat at the bar. I also didn't notice any rough edges on the seats. Very stable and decent quality. After looking around quite a bit, these are similar style to much more expensive stools. I'd recommend.
I've been looking for rustic/industrial stools for awhile and found them here on Overstock - they are exactly what I wanted and Overstock had them for a great price! However because of the nature of the stool being wood and "rustic" I did have a few issues with rough edges and a crack in one of them which I ended up having to exchange 2 of the 4 I purchased. So the stools are pretty cool and I've gotten lots of comments - they may not be the sturdiest if you have small children though. BUT, if I could give Overstock a standing ovation I would!!! They were SO great and very helpful with the exchanges I had to make and delivery was extremely prompt! I spoke to a couple of different cust service reps who were so incredibly helpful!!! I wish I had their names to personally thank them! Based on this service alone, I would definitely order from Overstock again!! Thanks!
Found two of these stools at a local Marshalls, but needed a third. I was thrilled to find these on Overstock. I placed my order on December 18, and they arrived 3 days later with free shipping! They're sturdy, yet lightweight so they're easy to move--perfect for our condo. The wooden seat has a repurposed wood look that complements the industrial-looking legs. A great price for a great look!
