The materials for these stools are fine, but the attachment of the seat to the metal base is not tight so the top seat wobbles a bit. I have the $300 seats from Crate and Barrel and they wobble a bit too. My biggest problem with these stools is that with the 3 leg base - not as sturdy. I like that you can adjust the height of the stools (why I purchased them), and the seat itself is very large - but there is no foot rest.

This stools are great. Perfect for both counter-height and table-height You can leave the screw a little loose if you still want them to spin, and they'll go up and down but it's gradual enough that it doesn't matter. The only slight thing wrong with them is that when they're raised up the footrest is too low.
Although we've had these stools in use for just a couple of weeks, my kids are already complaining that they do not like them: they are uncomfortable and wobbly. I must agree with them, and I find myself avoiding sitting in them (they are used only at the breakfast counter). I would much rather go into the dinner room and sit at my comfy kitchen chair. It is unfortunate because the quality of the materials seems to be sturdy and strong… I think the leg base should have been wider in order to create a better center of gravity. I don't think I'd buy these again…

Loved the look of these barstools. However, when we started using them a couple of flaws stuck out: the barstools are very unstable and tip over easily, there is no place to put your feet and they just dangle.
This stool is very functional for sitting at my piano.The height range is perfect for a keyboard. The bullnose edge on the wooden seat also adds comfort. The matte black legs and walnut color go well together. They visually blend.
My only word of caution is about the legs. They are not as widely spaced as with some stools. If you position the cross bar parallel to your legs it's very easy to lean back and fall over. This is only important, however, should a child or hyperactive adult be the person using the stool. Do exercise some caution.
If the stool is placed on a solid surface the metal legs might also dig in a bit. Since there is only a thin layer of rubber for protection you might wish to buy some after market cane tips. They may also help making it harder to tip over.
Overall, however, I'm very pleased with this purchase, especially at this price point

Thank you for your inquiry on the Wood/Metal Adjustable Pavina Barstool. The stools seat is rubberwood. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 22, 2013
I am going to assume that it is veneer since you didn't really answer the question. I received one of your other stools that said it was wood and it was very thin veneer over particle board.rwiggim on Mar 24, 2013
