We ordered two barstools. They arrived via UPS on the date promised. When we removed them from the packing, we were very impressed by the beauty in appearance and the excellent quality and workmanship. Assembly involved securing the back of the stool to the bottom seat with 4 screws. To our delight, within minutes, the stools were in place and being used in our newly remodeled kitchen! The foot rail and tilt/swivel features make this an outstandly comfortable stool.
