Okay, so I now have a new favorite seat in the house. I recently moved and bought two of these stools as a "new place splurge" and could not love them more. They have the funky, industrial aesthetic that I was after and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality--a real value for this price (and no assembly required)! Other reviewers mentioned having to sand the seat tops, but mine were smooth enough not to cause the dreaded splinter-in-the-butt, yet maintained a cool, rough texture. Also, I did not have the "squeak" problem others identified as annoying, so either the company responded to customer feedback or I got lucky. (But don't let these minor complaints keep you from ordering! This stool is awesome!) As for comfort, ummmmmm, it's a stool. Functional more so than luxurious, but that doesn't mean you won't linger over morning coffee because you can't stand being perched on it. Finally, a word to the wise: this stool sells out on this site quickly, so if you're even remotely considering a purchase, place your order!
