I found the EXACT stools in a local store for $40.00 less! and they were assembled....these were not assembled and when I did assemble, one leg is a hair shorter then all the other 3 legs and therefore wobbles a bit. Had it not been too difficult to return, I would have returned the item and shopped locally.
I was a bit concerned ordering these stools without seeing them in person, but I am completely satisfied. They are just perfect. They are really solid and will hold a lot of weight. The fit and finish is excellent. There is even some detailed notches carved in the seat for a kind of rustic or distressed look. This is another excellent product we have bought from Overstock.
As a large person I find most stools too small - these saddle seats are very comfortable. One reviewer said they were wobbly, but if you put a couple of drops of wood glue in and tighten the screw all the way these support 300 lbs easily with no wobble at all.
The stools are great- my kids love sitting on them at the kitchen counter. They are a little high for a tall adult, but a shorter one can comfortably eat at the counter too. The frame is very solid and seems sturdy- I especially love the antiqued finish. I would highly recommend them!
I usually do not purchase furniture online since I like to see the quality that I am buying....but these bar stools are superior quality plus very easy to assemble. I highly recommend that if you are looking for bar stools, you give these a second look.
very sturdy and plenty big enough for bigger people to feel comfortable. Black rubbed finish with red showing through is very pretty. I have received many compliments on them. I have no "handyman" talents and had no problem assembling.
I had been searching for good quality stools at a decent price and these fit the bill. They fit right under the bar top, out of sight, when not in use, and are always available when needed without taking up alot of space. We love them.
THESE STOOLS WERE A GREAT BUY. VERY STURDY AND MUCH NICER LOOKING THAN THE ONES AT BED, BATH AND BEYOND PRICED $10 HIGHER. I ORDERED THE BLACK WHICH HAS JUST A HINT OF HAND RUBBED RED SHOWING THROUGH AROUND THE EDGE OF THE SEAT. A GREAT FIND, YOU WON'T BE SORRY!
I am very happy with these barstools. They are sturdy and do not teter. They are comfortable to sit on and work well with counter height requirements. Putting the first one together was only a little frustrating however as soon as I realized that the foot bars needed to be in a certain direction they fit together perfectly. I highly recommend these.
We've been looking for barstools like this for about a month and could never find ones that were very sturdy for a decent price. We decided to chance this - mainly because the reviews were good. Took a few days longer than expected but when they arrived they were fairly simple to put together. Total time was about an hour. They are very sturdy and well crafted pieces. I would recommend these to friends!
