I needed 3 stools for my kitchen renovation after hurricane Sandy. I was looking for a "pop" of blue and thought these would be perfect. These stools came in a set of 2 - I chose to order these instead of 3 higher priced stools and am so glad I did. Even though I have 4 stools - they are a great value for the money. They are a nice bright blue, they were easy to put together and are quite sturdy. They are a great addition to my kitchen.
