This is a great chair at an excellent price. I've been looking for a new, good-quality, affordable task chair over the course of the past 12 months. I actually ordered this chair as my second choice because it was available in the color that I had wanted. Somehow, in reading the description I missed the fact that this is a drafting stool and was surprised to see how tall it was after assembly. The directions for the assembly showed the assembly without the extension and foot rest for the drafting stool which results in this chair to becoming a perfect Task Chair--Just what I wanted! The quality of this item is far beyond any other chair in this price range that I have seen in office furniture retail stores. The screws for the arms of this chair do not put stress on the wood because they have machined metal holders that are inserted into the openings and are pre inserted into the wood for a tight and lasting assembly (though the directions do say that the screws should be tightened once a year). Very Important--the screws are in the chair cushions (back and seat) and must be removed prior to assembly. This item does not come with a bag of hardware. As indicated, I assembled this chair without the extension for the drafting stool and /foot rest (which are included with but the assembly is not mentioned in the instructions). Warning--after assembling with the drafting assembly extension piece, it is quite difficult to pull the metal apart. So if you decide you want a task chair, don't sit on the chair after assembly until you are sure you have conclusively decided it you want to use the extension because the wait of a person will cause the metal pieces to become almost fused together. Finally, this chair comes with a six year warranty. Highly recommend!
These stools fit the bill perfectly. I spent about two months looking locally for them to no avail. Overstock had them with a price I could live with. My coworkers really like them as they use them constantly. the product arrived in a timely fashion and in great shape. I will continue to shop overstock.com!
I bought 2 chairs for my craft room. They will be used for sitting at a counter and then turning to a table. The adjustment is very helpful. I love the foot ring as I am short. It helps to get into the chair and of course for resting my feet! The assembly was easy, I did it by myself! The covers for the pole were a bit confusing and the instructions were of no help! They were very brief, mostly pictures and were not for the drafting stool - basically for an office chair - so placement of the pole covers was common sense. It took me a couple of tries to get them positioned correctly!! I still am very happy with them and look forward to many happy years of crafting in them! Also, after looking at many drafting stools, this price can't be beat!

The stool is as described online. My husband assembled it in 10 minutes. The seat cusion is firm and comfortable. The back is adjustable and comfortable. The arms are in a good position. The working parts work smoothly and well. The stool is very high quality for the price.

This is a good quality drafting stool. Easy to assemble and sturdy when in use. Doesn't feel like it will tip when being used. Also rolls smoothly and freely (tested on berber carpet only - I don't know how well it will roll on thicker carpet). I would buy this product again.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality product.

Product was easy to put together and worked great out of the box. We had purchaced another brand from a chain store and was very disappointed in the functioning of the wheel locks that it had. This one did not have any locks and works much better for the application we need. Arm rests are comfortable, but may be a little high for the chair seat. This was the best deal we could find without compromising quality.

I bought this to keep in my kitchen for when I was doing tedious prep work. I am heavy and have a bad back, perfect for the job. I just worry that putting my weight on the arms they won't last long. Other than that it's a great chair for a great price. I did a lot of research and this was the cheapest tall task chair I could find, but still good quality

I needed a new drafting stool. I looked all over This one was the best in the price range I could find. I like the fabric, Blue/Black weave. I would like a little more padding . I sit there painting for hours. The height is just right and it went togather easily. (Less than 5 min.)

I use this chair in my kitchen, as I have a hard time standing for more than a minute or so. Bad back. I like the idea that you can raise and; lower the seat, and that it is tall enough so you can stir on top of the stove. Also works well (with cabinet door open) to sit at sink to peel things. The foot rest ring is very important to have, and don't get one without it. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase, as it is a lot less money than most, and the quality is excellent.
I ordered two of these to use at my breakfast bar. The first thing I encountered upon Disassembly of the lower seat cushion mounting screws: I had to use a square shank flat tip screwdriver and a crescent wrench to remove the screws for the base plate and the arm rests. This took an hour to accomplish and I'm very mechanically inclined. First chair assembled OK and functions fine. Second chair: one of the receptacles that the screw anchors in stripped out in the wood seat base. I returned this chair and had a replacement inside a week. Good Job Overstock on quick replacement!!!! Here's the secret to removing AND reinstalling the screws: use a blow dryer on each screw heating it for approximately 45 seconds before trying to remove each screw. The manufacturer uses thread locker on each screw when they insert the screws for shipping. They should simply place screws in a bag with a small tube of thread locker for final assembly. If a screw gives you trouble removing or during assembly simply heat it up again. This will save you ALOT of hassle with these chairs.
The chair is well priced and made well. I have no complaints except the chair didn't come with the arms as listed. I wish it had. Also, the foot thing squeaks when I (too much caffeine) bounce my feet.
