These "Andalusia" products are knockoffs of the Mies van de Rohe designs for the German pavilion in the Barcelona worlds fair in 1929/30. (Hence the names Barcelona or Pavilion in lots of descriptions). Knockoffs for sure - because there were no such small stools in the original exhibition. Still... I like the design aesthetic and these are pretty good knockoffs. The leather is good quality and the stools are comfortable. I use them as 'side stools, they can be for seating or as a resting place for reading material, etc. The legs require a minimal amount of work to attach - and its straightforward enough for anyone who can wield a screwdriver to complete in a few minutes. When looking at the underside of the stools, its clear the chromed steel legs are a bit roughly hewn, but this is not visible once the stools are assembled and absolutely does not distract. I have them beside recumbent loungers and they look great. I bought them for that but considered that if I didn't actually like them there they would do well in a dressing room or at the foot of the bed to in an entranceway (and lots of other reviewers have suggested). I like them so much I may buy a couple more for just one such use, as they still impress me as being that versatile. The price is great - especially compared with other more ugly footstools, that cost more! I can easily recommend these. Thanks again for another good deal O.Co.
