These stools are great for the price. Most stools look about the same and are about 100 dollars more per stool. I had these same stools for 8 years and just replaced them w/ the same ones. They lasted a long time for the price and I couldn't find anything that I liked better. They actually look better as they wear because the faux leather on the top gets a little more worn and looks authentic. Buy em, you'll like em!
