I ordered these stool because they were slightly smaller than normal and fit an area at our house. I'm waiting on my fifth order. That's a total of 10 stools, and i have yet to receive one that didn't arrive broken. The way they are packaged sets the bottom rungs on top of the bottom stool. They break every time in transit. I would NOT recommend these to a friend for that reason. The stools are not a bad product, but I have to rate these how i receive them.
I was a little disappointed when I received my stools. I ordered two in red. I was prepared for some color difference but the difference was greater than expected. Since there is no foot rest or bar on this style stool I rested my foot on the cross bar of the other stool. I was disappointed to discover that the paint pealed off the cross bar where my foot had rested. Under the circumstances I'm not expecting these stools to stand up to daily use at my kitchen breakfast bar. The four legs give the stools stability without a bulky look. I do think, however that the quality does not justify the price. I would recommend that you keep looking.
I had been looking for two smaller metal stools to place in my living room under an overhanging counter for a kitchen pass-through. These stools arrived quickly and in perfect condition. They were shipped well-wrapped and nicely padded... a good thing, since the shipping cartons were flimsy and both boxes arrived somewhat damaged. I ordered RED stools, and the color is exactly what I wanted: not a bright fire-engine red at all, but a nice, subtle darker red - almost a burgundy, perhaps a shade darker than the red stool that is pictured (and with a slightly distressed look). The stools have clean, simple lines, and they have a definite "industrial" feel to them - which I will soften by adding small round cushions. They came already assembled, very sturdy, and the lowering/ raising mechanisms work beautifully. I am using them partially raised, which means that the seats swivel when you get on & off - yet the stools are VERY stable. I'm extremely happy with this purchase!
