We wanted an adjustable height stool, without a back, to tuck under the counter when not in use. These are perfect for us. The seat is comfortable and the adjustment works smoothly. The leather is nice and the chrome looks good and is easy to clean. But those darn bolts that attach the seat to the post are too long. It's an easy fix, just go to your local hardware store and ask for a 6 mm bolt with 1.0 threads that is 10 mm long. Swap out the bolts on the stool and you're done.
