Overall I like these bar stools. The air lift mechanism works really well and I like that you change the high of the bar stools to be bar height or counter height. It makes the stools more versatile. They add modern flare to your kitchen and couldn't be easier to assemble. One thing that I do not like is that the wood does not line up with the medal on the back part of the chair. I saw this in other reviews but thought nothing of it. It makes the chairs look slight cheap but over all still a good product. You get what you pay for.
