These stools looked great and I was very happy with them---for the first thirty seconds out of the box. I sat on one to see how comfortable they were and the foot rail instantly snapped and came off! I'm wondering if it was a fluke since the other reviews are all positive but with two kids I couldn't trust how long they would hold up so I had to send them back. I have to say that returning isn't a big deal though you have to take it to the shipper. These were big and bulky boxes and fortunately I have a van but that could have been an issue otherwise. I also got a rug that we love and will order again from Overstock. I'm disappointed the stools had to be returned as they did look nice.
