I searched for the perfect barstools for my remodeled kitchen. When I found these, I figured they were very close to what I wanted. After reading the reviews, I ordered two sets. I love them, but please note a few things about the color... 1. Previous reviews stated that they were a cream color with a green undertone and I completely agree. I am OK with the cream color, but they are almost too green for my kitchen (that has green undertones in the wall color and granite). 2. The wood color is a VERY VERY dark cherry. I was hoping for more of a cherry/walnut color after reading a few reviews and examining the pictures. I actually might paint them black because they almost look purple (that is probably a stretch, but they are a deep, dark brownish red). Overall, they are wonderful. I am pleased with the purchase and they look very nice even though this review might sound a bit critical.
