We were looking for something that fits our industrial setting yet wanted something rustic....These fit the bill to the "T". The price was fantastic too....we looked at ****, I bought 4 stools from the "O" for the price of one of theirs and much better quality I think. Now the seats are bare wood...very rustic but I didn't mind.. I sanded them down a bit a placed my own color stain on them, then a coat of poly. The are now mahogany in color and the perfect seat for my apothecary bar. I'll wait until these go on sale again to pick up a few more.
