This has to be the most comfortable stools I've ever come across. The cushioning on the seat and back make it easy to sit in one of these chairs for a few hours. The lever to adjust the stool glides with ease to fit your needs. The chairs aren't real leather, but you really can't detect that at all. Being able to swivel the chair in any direction, was one of the details about this chair that attracted me. Some assembly is needed, but the step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. This set gets a huge thumbs-up from me.
