Nice, modern stools are so expensive these days but the price of these stools was great! The stools I bought were very easy to put together, and nothing was missing. They came very well packaged and look just like the picture. They spin and go up/down very easily. They are a nice wide stool, nothing cheap about them. They will scratch if rubbed against something hard but in the kitchen that is to be expected. I bought 4 and can use them in several different places in my home because of the adjustable height, kitchen counter, pub table, and basement bar!
