Bought 4 of these barstools. All arrived in good shape. Very quick to assemble with the included screwdriver. My only comment other than "perfect" is the stools have a bit more "give" in the pneumatic shock when you sit on them than I would have thought. I'm not fat, but the stool shrinks almost 2 inches when I sit on it. Surprisingly good product, and they look very good in our contemporary-styled kitchen/bar.
