I orderd 4 bar stools and received these bar stools in a timely manner....can't beat the cost of shipping! They were packaged well (2 per box) and parts and directions were all included. They were fairly easy to assemble. They are very comfortable and I love the look of them. My only complaint is that they are somewhat shorter than I expected and it seems as though the finish is easily scratched off. Overall I feel that the bar stools are a good value for the price.
