I looked at these stools over and over again...read all the reviews and decided to purchase. They were at my doorstep with in 3-4 days of purchase. Unloaded them out of the box and they were in perfect condition. The color is exactly as pictured. Creme, no yellow or green hue to them at all. The wood is an expresso color and the quality of the leather is great. I was concerned about the height being 26" because my other counter stools were 24" but I love the height at 26" (my counter is 35-36"). They look elegant, very comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Love them!!!!
