These counter stools fit perfectly in to what we were looking for. The fabric on the cushion was strong and the colors coordinated well with our kitchen decor. The stools were heavy instead of being the cheap lightweight kind that you know in time will start to wobble. The black finish on the stools has the rustic / wrought iron effect. The swivel seats works great too, as I was hoping they wouldn't swivel too easy and bang into the counter, which they don't. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a black counter stool. We searched in stores, and found nothing that would come close to comparing with these...we are extremely happy with the purchase, and the prompt arrival. They were a snap to put together, easy to read directions, and both were assembled in 45 minutes.
