I bought these based on the positive feedback, and I'm really glad I did. They are very nice looking and comfortable. I tried a lot of barstools, but I could always feel the front wood of the seat under the cushion, making them uncomfortable to sit on for long. These are well padded and you can't feel the wood on the seat. Also, you don't slide forward like you do on most leather stools. Very well made and worth the price.
