I dont usually take the time for reviews, but these stools are great. They come nicely packaged (assembled) 2 to a box. The (solid wood) legs are wrapped and the bottoms have a protective sleeve on the wood, and have bubble wrap/foam, etc. The leather is of great quality, perfectly stitched and all color matched (I bought 4). What I really like about these stools is that the back is not too tall, basically it sit just about at counter height....but still give ample back support. This was the only one in the market I found at this total height. It is rare to find all the quality and features assembled into the lowest price around.
