I have been using these bar stools since May. The 8ft. island in my new house easily fits four of these stools neatly under the counter. I had purchased and returned two other sets of stools (some from Home Goods and some from an Amazon dealer) before I settled on these. After reading all the reviews, I was a little nervous about the assembly and overall quality. What everyone says about the hardware is true. We were missing a few screws and one screw was simply too short to hold one of the legs on. After a trip to home improvement store, my husband was able to find replacement parts; however, they were silver screws and not black like the others sent with the stools. My simple fix was to spray the screw heads with a little black spray paint. Perfect solution and no one will ever know. Rough patches on the wooden seats was another issue that reviewers commented on. Since I had four stools, I was able to get a good cross section of what they were talking about. On three of my four stools I had to take some wood putty and fill in a couple rough patches that would catch on your clothing. After lightly sanding, I touched up the putty with a furniture touch-up marker with no trouble at all and now they look good as new. They all swivel beautifully and I really enjoy owning them. Overall, for the price and quality these stools are a solid purchase. I am very happy with them!
I purchased this stool to replace the "bar" height stools I had for my grandchildren now that they have grown. This is a beautifully made product and would work well with most decors. The wood on the top of the stool has a lovely patina and the metal "legs" appear to be powder coated to a rich finish.
