We recently had a kitchen renovation that added additional seating at our island and we were looking for a round table with leather chairs and matching counter stools. The Hudson set is a tremendous value and looks even better than the photos. The actual seat is a bit wider than we expected and these are very sturdy stools. The counter stools take about ten minutes each to assemble once you figure out the poor directions and I'd recommend a drill with an allen wrench bit to speed up the process. The stools came well packaged and they do not have to be shopped via freight (like the Hudson table & chairs) so we had the stools in a couple of days. Don't hesitate to purchase as you will be pleased with these stools.
