These bar stools are gorgeous. Very heavy duty, sturdy and extremely high quality. The seat padding is thick and very cushy. They are a bit wider than we had expected due to the contour base so spacing will be a bit tight around our bar, but we can live with that. The only reason I didn’t t rate with 5 stars was because one of the eight that we ordered arrived damaged with a scratch in the leather seat and knick in the iron base. It appeared that the box had been opened before and that someone else had returned it for the same issue. Customer service handled it professionally but it was still extremely inconvenient to return it. I felt they should have given us a small credit for our trouble. All in all, we are very happy with our purchase.
I love the stools and color, but it was very hard to put screws in without stripping them. The tool the kit came with to put stools together was difficult to turn when it reached a certain point, and I stripped all but 2 of the screws. One of the bar stools were cracked on top as well.
I've owned these stools for 9 months now. The powder coated metal frame is extremely sturdy and well made. I had to purchase 4 seats in order to get 2 seats that were close to being identical. Each seat had a different seat top- one was taller than the others, and the some foam padding were too soft and others too firm. There was also an issue with the vinyl covering unevenly stretched and stapled to the bottom of the seat. Who would have thought it was so difficult for a company to manufacture a stool that is consistent in build. To top if off, after purchasing the seats, the price dropped by *** each! I feel a little burned by the experience, but I'm still rating the stool based on the overall quality of the correct ones I ended up with.
