I was looking for a "modern casual" barstool and found these wonderful stools. I bought 4 in the brown (which is a dark, cocoa color - love it!) for my home. I ordered them on a Friday and received them on Monday (nice job overstock!) They were super simple to put together - took about 10 minutes each - actually, taking off all the packaging they were wrapped in took the longest amount of time. The gas lift works great, the swivel is smooth, they are sturdy, yet not too heavy to move around. The leather is not a glossy leather, more matted and is breathable like real leather. In the picture they look like if you lean back in them you may tip over, but you don't. They are balanced well. They are comfy (probably 8.5 out of 10) plenty comfy to sit for awhile and have a meal. They come with 4 bolts and an allen wrench to bolt them in. I did need a pair of pliers to take the plastic cap off the gas part. I am very happy with them. Thanks Overstock!
