I had been looking for months (both in stores and on line) for matching chairs and barstools for our combination dining room/kitchen. I was quite reluctant to make such a big purchase without any previous ratings, but I couldn't resist the amazing price. We purchased four barstools and eight dining chairs. The barstools have quite roomy seats (they don't fit under the counter as completely as our old ones) and they are VERY comfortable. They really modernize our living space and they look much more expensive than they are. The stools did take some time to put together, but they are well worth the investment! Overall we are very pleased with the purchase.
