We purchased this chair as we have similar barstools. Given the price point I did not have high expectations of quality but expected durability. The chair is sturdy, the assembly is straightforward with only a few pieces to put together. When paired with the other barstools in the kitchen, it is not an exact match but goes quite well. The walnut veneer is a little on the thin side but considering someone will be sitting on it, not much of an issue for us.
