I bought these counterstools together with the matching dining chairs to coordinate in our kitchen. The bonded leather is easy to clean and the simple, streamlined detailing make the presentation modern and not fussy. The have a very modern edge but are not over the top. What's great is that they are comfortable to sit in and provide a lot of room to sit on; firm but not stiff. They do have stitching detail so may not be to everyone's taste. Only drawback is that the foot rest bar is a bit too low. I am 5'7" and my feet just rest on it barely, which is the only reason I don't give the chairs 5 stars.
