I purchased 5 sets of the grey (10 stools) for my home bar. LOVE them. Very comfortable and go along with the trendy decor. Extremely easy to assemble.
I love bar stools that swivel, because they are easier to get in and out of if someone is already sitting next to you. I love the fact that I purchased ones that also raise and lower because they will be raised at the bar, but if my kids need extra seating in their game room they can borrow them and lower them to a normal height so no one topples over (or breaks the stools). I realized this was also a plus if I had a big party where I needed to serve food from the bar. I can lower the stools and place them elsewhere so people can sit to eat without sitting in front of the food. I originally purchased backless ones for this reason, but I changed my mind on the color and purchased these instead.
Love the look and quality of these bar stools, they are very comfortable to sit in. Even after 1.5 years they still look fantastic. These were a perfect compliment to my rustic-modern decor. I highly recommend if your into unique pieces.
Easy to assemble, comfortable and sturdy. Great buy for the price. They look amazing too! I needed 7 bar stools so I was looking for a good bargain for a good looking chair. I'm very happy with my purchase.
We are very happy with this purchase. We ordered two and they not only look great, but the quality is great. They were somewhat simple to put together and they came very quickly after ordering. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
I've have these chairs for about a month and am impressed with the look and use of it. I shopped around for similar styles and was really skeptical about ordering but figured for overstocks pricing I couldn't go wrong. I must say I am very pleased with it, it exceeds my expectations so far!! leatherette is soft and seems durable. I love that it can be adjusted to variety of heights it will double as a desk chair temporarily. While other reviews mention nicks or markings on the frame, I had no issues with that, it arrived in perfect condition! Thank you Overstock!!
Very nice looking - they look more expensive than they are. Comfortable to sit on and the height adjustment is easy to operate. The foot rest moves with the seat rather than staying in one location as with some other models which is great. The height adjustment stopped working on one of ours after about 1 month, but all others are fine so far. They don't really lend themselves to repair, so we bought a couple of extra sets.
We were looking for stools to put into our newly remodeled industrial/modern kitchen and these fit the bill perfectly! We needed them to be low back, comfy seats, and a mix of metal and wood (not as easy to find as you might think!) The fact that these swivel is a huge bonus! We couldn't be happier. I bought the black metal with beige seat and the beige is a lovely, reclaimed wood looking stain with a mix of lighter wood and some light grey - perfect for a mixed media decor!
These stools came fully assembled and are sturdy. The only issue we may have is the rough nature of the top of the stool, with the potential of snagging on clothing. However, we may just sand them down a little to soften it. Beautiful, simple and the perfect height for a normal counter height eat-in area.
We replaced some very old bar stools bought when we had very little money. They were used and abused by many, many children. These stools are sturdy and comfortable. We'll see how well they do with the grandchildren.
We appreciate the fact that Overstock does exactly what it states in its policies.
I love these stools! My husband and his family are larger and it has been a challenge to find stools that will stand up to 300+ lb drunks (and that actually look nice) but these do the trick! I needed a little extra leverage to install the screws, but once you have them tight, there is no way these stools will wiggle! I added felt pads to the bottom to protect our floor and waited a while before putting the wooden plugs in so I could retighten the screws after a few weeks of use. I originally ordered 2 sets for around our kitchen island, but after getting these, I'm planning to get 2 more sets for our basement bar. AND, you can't beat the price (even my mother-in-law couldn't believe the quality of these stools, especially after I told her the price)! I would HIGHLY recommend these if you are looking for a strong, good looking set of stools.
These are comfortable, sturdy, and the color blends beautifully with our island. So glad we found them! They were easy to assemble, and we love that the seat swivels, and that there's a foot rest for my short legs.
It doesn't get any better than open the box and put under the counter. They arrived quickly, were in perfect condition and were exactly what we needed. They take up so much less room than a chair that has a back and runs in the opposite direction. Perfect for those counters that only have a few inches of overhang. I'm very happy with this purchase.
I rarely give five stars on anything but this was an exeption. First, it was very easy to assemble with just four screws to attach the chair to the legs. I bought three and all three where in flawless condition and each swivel worked alike and very smooth (not my experience with other swivel bar stools). These are well made and VERY comfortable to my pleasant surprise. I like the low profile cushioned back which hits just above the bar to not block the view when not in use. Easy to clean and so far holding up very well. Would definitely recommend these barstools!
You never know what you are getting on Overstock. The quality varies so much, and I have bought several items that were complete disappointments. These stools are not in that category. They completely exceeded our expectations. They are heavy, sturdy, and seem to be of very good construction. We love them. They look great and seem like they will last a long time.
I purchased 2 of these stools. The welds are solid. The only issue is the black metal banding around the wood seat is not flush, so there is a gap around the wood in some areas. I do not mind this, as the piece is supposed to be rustic and casual. Also, the wood seat is not sanded smooth, but again, the piece is rustic. It's not enough to give splinters. The stool also needed some oiling to avoid a hideous squeek when rotated. For me, none of these issues were a problem and I love the stools. They look great and have a nice balance of being large enough to have a 'presence,' but small enough so as not to overwhelm a space. They were also a FABULOUSLY cost effective option. You just can not compare the price range of these to similar items from more elite sites. When I purchased, they were sold out, so I put my name on the wait list. I received an email letting me know they were in stock again. I purchased them at 10:00 a.m. and by 4:00 p.m. they were sold out again!
Very nice stools at a very nice price. These looks much more expensive than they cost. The only negative is that there are no pre-drilled holes for the seats. However, it's very easy to drive the provided screws in (don't need to pre-drill). Just have someone sit on the seat when you do it so that it doesn't move. The stools also come with extended legs to make them taller.
We really love these, they're just a bit scratchy. I wouldn't sit down on these if I was wearing dress pants or anything that would snag easily. They have rubber clings around the bottom which are a great help on the hardwood floors. Overall we love them, just have to pick and choose what attire might not be a good idea to take a seat. I'm sure some sanding might help if you really wanted to.
These counter stools were a great buy for the price. They are the perfect height for my counter height island. Wanted something that wouldn't scrape across the floor when moved, and so far the feet don't leave marks when you move the stools over tile. Really love the handy handle on top which makes it really easy to move the stool out from under the counter and to put them back. They aren't too heavy to move, but at the same time have a nice heft to them. I do like the color which is very similar to what is shown in the image, trending a little toward brownish gray. One thing I will mention is that I was a little unprepared for how splotchy the finish was in some places. I'm sure this was intentional to give it that "vintage" look, but I would have preferred something without such noticeable splotches. Makes it look like you borrowed it out of someone's garage so be warned and look carefully at the close-up pictures to see what I mean because it is much more noticeable than in the pictures.
I ordered two of these bar stools and two without backs. The color is beautiful. A rich off white. The seats are wide and extremely comfortable. Capable of holding a large person comfortably. They are very well made and were quite easy to put together.
The stools arrived quickly, the boxes were very damaged but the stools were not affected. They were very easy to put together, I put together 4 of them in a matter of minutes by myself. They work as designed, I have no problem with letting them up and down and they have been able to hold people who are heavier in weight with no problem. I got the dark brown colored ones and they look the same in person as they did on the web site and match very well with my other furniture which has legs that are chocolate brown in color. The quality of the stools is very good and they look as though they cost more than what I paid for them, not to mention the design is different from most other stools you might find in a typical furniture store. If you're on the fence, I would recommend giving them a try. I'm very particular about the furniture I have purchased and most of the pieces in my home have been custom ordered and these stools go along great with them.
While the chairs are beautiful!! The size of the chair is actually 30" from floor to seat. Customer Service advised me that it would be no higher than 27-28" so dealing with a 35" counter height peninsula that would make sense. Again while they are gorgeous, aligning the seat legs can be and will be a pain (extra nails and hardware will be left). I would recommend these chairs for someone who does not mind the height of the chair. They are a beautiful linen fabric, I just personally probably will not be able to cope w/ the height difference as a couple inches goes a long way. I'll probably never order chairs again from Overstock :(
I ordered 4 of these for my breakfast bar. My husband said assembly was easy and they went together quickly. Only negative is that they did not come with pads or floor protectors on the bottom of the legs. The legs were pre-drilled like there was supposed to be something to insert. We went to our local home store and purchased screw in floor protectors, however, some of the pre/drilled holes were off center and we had to Redrill to have them centered. What I like most about the stools are that the foot rails are metal so they will withstand repeated shoes scraping on them unlike the wooden painted version of other stools. The concave backs are also very comfortable!
The Barstools arrived in great shape , were well marked and it was easy to determine the proper location for each during the assembly. The screws were numerous and of several similar sizes. I had difficulty choosing the proper size for the appropriate location because they were so similar and un marked. So of course I placed one where it didn't belong and it split one of the legs at the top. The finished product looks good , and it is very sturdy. I orderered 2 sets of 2. They are a good value.
Except for being a complete PIA to assemble, they are just what I wanted. The color IS way more beige/brown than grey, but I was prepared for that - very comfortable and fits perfect at bar height counter.
I am so pleased with this purchase! I ordered two of the Melrose Counter Stools for my recently remodeled kitchen. I placed the order on Wednesday evening and they were at my door Friday afternoon! Assembly took about an hour for each one, but it wasn't difficult. The stools are very sturdy and exactly what I was looking for. If you are looking for a true grey color, the Driftwood Grey is probably not for you, but since I wanted more of a taupe it is perfect. Thanks, Overstock!
I originally ordered two sets of these bar stools, based on the great prices and transitional style. At first I was disappointed when 3 of the 4 stools were either unsteady/rocking or damaged. That being said, Overstock replaced the items and the new ones are great! There was concerned about whether the stools would be sturdy, but the legs are actually thicker than the photo indicates and they are very sturdy. I love the design and was so pleased that the look was even better than hoped!
Absolutely love these barstools. They are the perfect piece for our modern farmhouse. I ordered 4, and 2 arrived with rust. Overstock CSR immediately addressed my concerns and shipped us new ones before we even returned the other ones so that we would have them for our Open House. Added some vinyl shoes at the bottom to avoid scratching the floors, and they are PERFECT!
I purchased 4 of the Christopher Knight Home Avondale Brown Counter Stools and I'm delighted with them. The picture does not do them justice. The stools are very well made and very comfortable. And they look very expensive. Great Buy!
I was worried at this price point that these would look cheap, but they fit in very well in our high end kitchen. They were easy to put together and are comfortable. Very happy with my purchase so far.
Was a bit concerned about ordering 2 sets of these stools since there was one very bad review, but decided to take a chance. Glad I did! The stools came well wrapped and boxed, and they are absolutely beautiful and comfortable. We have black kitchen cabinets, gray and white granite counters, and stainless appliances -- these stools are a perfect compliment to our new kitchen!
I ordered these after a VERY long search. Took a chance. They are GORGEOUS. Perfect for our house. They some completely assembled, packed extremely well. I am beyond pleased. These are probably nicer than a restoration hardware version at 4x the price. These stools are a great value.
I have little kids so we will see how the fabric holds up, but it appears very durable. They are very comfortable too.
I took some pictures but not sure how to post them.
Very sturdy, seemingly well-made, nice looking and comfortable barstools. Everything is well put together for shipment and assembly. It take a moderate amount of time to assemble each. It would be helpful to find an alternative to the enclosed allen wrench tool.

How to Buy Bar Stools
Find the Right Style
Finding the right bar stools for your kitchen is essential to your overall aesthetic. With the wide variety of styles that are available, each will impact your decor differently. Traditional stools with nail head trim and ornate legs promote an atmosphere of elegant formality, while handsomely weathered rustic stools are better for homey dining spaces. If you are going for urban chic, use industrial stools made from distressed metal and wood. But, if your home is more contemporary and minimalist, the straightforward flair of modern stools will fit right in. When in doubt, the versatile design of transitional style pairs beautifully with almost any decor.
Consider the Features
While shopping for stools, consider which features you need. Any room where people often gather for long periods of time will need stools with cushioned seats to keep them comfortable, and exceptionally tall stools will need footrests for support. Arms and curved backs can also help make a guest more comfortable. Swiveling seats permit more fluid adjustments, enabling you to reach around you at will. These features are optional and may not be right for the style of your home, so it comes down to personal preference and necessity.
Think About Height
One of the most important things to consider when shopping for bar stools is how high you need the seats to be. Measure the height of your counter or bar before making a purchase. The standard height for kitchen counters is thirty-five inches. For counters this high, counter-height stools with seats between twenty-four and twenty-seven inches off the ground are recommended. Bars are usually a bit taller than counters, often measuring around forty-two inches high. For a bar this high, stools with seats between twenty-eight and thirty-three inches high will work best. For some versatile convenience, you could also get a stool with a height-adjustable seat.
Consider a Seat Material
The quality of a bar stool depends greatly on what it is made from, and a stool’s materials will have a significant impact on your decor. Wood is used for crafting stools in every style, so it is a safe option for uncertain buyers. Fabric or leather upholstery pairs beautifully with traditional furnishings and makes a stool more luxurious. Bare metal stools are ideal for modern and industrial styles. Metal barstools are often the sturdiest but they are also heavy, while well-made wooden barstools are more light-weight and almost as durable. However, metal and wood stools should only be used indoors to prevent water damage. For outdoor spaces, use stools made from plastic, coated metal, or all-weather wicker.
Choose a Back Style
Stools with backs are generally more comfortable than stools without them because they support you while you lounge, making them better for counters and bars where people spend more time. Backless stools and low-back stools are a great low-profile option for minimalist spaces. Most of the time, a stool without a back can be slipped underneath your counter when not being used. Additionally, a chair without a back is easier to get in and out of, making them great for spaces where people are going to be coming and going quickly.
