We bought 4 of these stools for the kitchen.They are true to the description, very comfortable, stylish, just the right height for the counter, easy to move around. The top of its back is just slightly above the counter so it's not in the way. I was wary about the color before I ordered them. Other reviews were correct - they have a little green/yellow tint, not strong though. Luckily it works with my kitchen. Unless you set them against something pure white, you can still call them cream white. It would have been very helpful if Overstock could provide swatches since they are available.
