The stools are the style I was looking for. One came with a broken rubber foot. I didn't want to send it back for that. It is usable. But moves on the base. The wood top on one stool has very deep grooves in the wood. I kept it because I couldn't guarantee that another wouldn't be the same. It definitely appears to be a second. I like the overall look and can live with them, but was disappointed. Will really think about ordering from Overstock.com again.
We really love these, they're just a bit scratchy. I wouldn't sit down on these if I was wearing dress pants or anything that would snag easily. They have rubber clings around the bottom which are a great help on the hardwood floors. Overall we love them, just have to pick and choose what attire might not be a good idea to take a seat. I'm sure some sanding might help if you really wanted to.
I loved the quality of this stool. Very sturdy and attractive, however the color was not as pictured or described. The metal bottom was black and the wood was not a "natural" finish, but a dark reddish brown. Unfortunately, I had to return them.
I saw these stools at ************ and fell in love with them! They were only ****, but unfortunately they were barstools, not counter stools. Thank God I found them on Overstock, but had to pay a lot more than I had wanted. But, when I got them I was happy I spent the extra money. I will say they are a liitle shorter than normal counter stools, but I love the look of them.
We bought these barstools for a house we have on an island in Maine. The stools would sit at a small kitchen bar looking onto to ocean. We needed something sturdy that would not take up too much room. These were perfect. The style is pefect for the house which has some old exposed beams. They do need some felt pads on the bottom so as not to scratch the floor, but that is no big deal. They are sturdy and well made for the price. We ordered three and liked them so much we ordered 4 more for our outdoor bar at the kitchen window. Overstock delivered fast too!
These stools are exactly what I was looking for. They are sturdy and level. There are 3 removable plastic pieces on the bottom of each stool. I stuck felt furniture pads (dark brown) on these plastic pads and it protects my new wood floor. My husband likes that the foot bar on the bottom is spot welded and isn't made with screws. I like that the metal is a dark brown color and not black. I ordered 4 stools and one of them has a rough spot that will sometimes pull the fabric of the towel when I wipe them down. It might pull your pants/skirt/dress if you had a delicate fabric on but it's fine with jeans, khaki, and wool dress pants. The height is perfect for our island. Everyone always compliments the stools when they see them for the first time.
I looked for a LONG time for stools and these turned out perfect. Arrived quickly and were well boxed. Very study, don't tip but yet surprising light. Great industrial design. The only thing I could pick at was the tops are a little rough, no issue when wearing jeans but may snag a lighter fabric.
The stools are perfect for what I needed the metal legs are wrought iron versus the red that is pictured. The stool tops are great they're rustic looking but smooth to the touch and very comfortable. They are also very light which makes it easy for my kids to move the stools around.
The pine seat is rough and we actually got a splinter taking it out of the package. In order to be able to sit on these stools, we had to give them several coats of polyurethane. Unless you plan to refinish the seats, would not recommend them.
The Willow Counter Stools are just what I had searched and searched for! The grandkids have no trouble climbing up on them....no tipping. I had a reservation as to how narrow they seemed next to all the others I looked at. But, they are sturdy and very well made. The rustic tops paired with the industrial base....great! Don't be afraid to order these stools. You'll love them.
I love my new counter stools. Purchased 3 for a lake front home. The only thing I wish was a little different is the texture of the wood. I realize it is the look I wanted, but sometimes I worry that it will pull the fabric of the clothing I am wearing. Would definitely purchase again.
