Bar stools are so sturdy and well-made, yet very attractive and comfortable. Have tried many stools and it's difficult to find a stool that is well-made and attractive, yet doesn't cost an arm and a leg. These stools are so worth their price. Had a little difficulty w/ missing hardware, but customer service contacted me immediately and resolved the issue. Would definitely recommend these. Swivel is great as is the size and comfort of the seat. Can't go wrong.
