We bought these chairs for the kitchen bar area. They are very low profile, allowing the eye to conentrate on the beauty of the kitchen rather than the chairs in front. Putting it together was super easy. One of the seats had the material already peeling off. We called overstock and they are sending us another one (great service there). We gave it 4 stars since one already had a problem, making us question the durability. the price however cannot be beat
We ordered two of the curved stools weeks ago. They arrived quickly, were packaged and protected wonderfully and are great quality for the money. We have been very pleased and have passed along the name of the Web-site to a few friends. Good Buy.
When I received the stools I assembled them easily and loved them. All who see them say "wow..look great" but.... the base must be iron with the thinnest coat of chrome ever. Rust stains formed under the bases... on my brand new $10, 000 Marmolium floor...I hope I'll be able to sand the stains out but I know it will never be perfect. Now the chrome (or whatever it is ) is all pitted and looking like rust dots... I tried to clean it with a spray cleaner and it turned into Black flakes. Sorry but like the wallboard ... the Chinese have struck again.it looks great but the quality is all cheap surface smoke and mirrors. don't buy these.
I bought 4 stools for my new kithen b/c they matched with the contempory look of the kitchen. They look cool from a distance away, but the vinyl seats have bumps and dull patches on them. Tried to use auto vinyl dressing to shine and cover the dull patches, it works until the dressing wears off and the the patches re-appears. There are other choices out there with comparible price
I have been looking at these stools for sevaral months now. They look much better in-person than online. I think they are made well and look really cool. I did not find them to be so uncomfortable; but I also don't sit at my counter for hours on end. I liked that; and they were well packaged. I have no complaints. If you are not sure. Go ahead and order them . I really don't think you will regret it. I certainly do not! :-)
With a 44" counter and a variety of users in our family, the adjustable seat height option is working perfectly for us. The seat and back are generous for a larger person, angles and countours comfortable. Foot rails well placed, though a thouch thin/sharp for socked feet. Web site represented wood and metal finishes accurately, so the colors are great. Finishes are good quality and consistent. Stools are rock solid - some might say heavy, but I think the material weight is a positive for the extended height. Great lines work with our mix of classic and modern furnishings. We are very pleased.
I was really nervous to order these because of all the neagative comments I read from others. When they arrived I opened them up and it literally took me 2 minutes to put them together. Plus, they were exactly what I wanted. I'm very pleased with them. I get lots of compliments on them and if I would've ordered them anywhere else it would've cost me $300 each. They came with a small silver piece that goes on the barstools but I chose not to put them on because it looked cheap and the silver piece was flaking off. They look great without it and I think it was for decorative purposes only anyway. Someone said that the bottom of them ruined their hardwood floors so I plan on putting felt on the bottom so I don't have that problem. I wouldn't want to take the chance. If you order these you should be very happy!
These chairs are a great value. They came in a slightly busted-up box, but were packed well enough that the chrome and 'leather' covering were not damaged. I get compliments on them from most visitors to my new condo, and I would buy them again if needed. There is a very minimal odd bump under the covering on one chair, but it's barely noticeable. One chair has started squeaking (about 2 months after purchase), but I plan on putting some WD-40 on the area and am confident that will stop the squeak.
Got this really fast! First time buying from Overstock.com, and the stools were better than I had expected. It's sturdy and also quite heavy. I think it will be pretty durable. I like the ability to adjust the height and smooth 360 degree rotation. Perfect for our island. The round bottom is a bit wider than I expected. Good value! Will recommend to others. Received many compliments on this.
These are great looking stools, and so easy to put together. The only draw back is, that you will not sit in them too long because there is no padding at all in the seat, and without a back they are not very comfortable. But we only use them to sit at the bar long enough to eat dinner, so in that little time they work very well, and I think they look great. One other note, I think they would last a long time because of the hard surface I don't see how they would rip, like the leather does on some of the padded bar stools. Overall pleased with them and they shipped them fast.
Bought two stools after reading customer reviews and then bought two more. Very pleased with them, although the chrome on the bases was a little too shiny. We spray-painted the bases with a hammered black paint and they look terrific, a bit more subdued. Great value for the price, particularly when compared to the original designer barstools that cost four or five times more. Comparable look for a fraction of the cost.
