We love these stools!!! At first I was apprehensive to purchase stools without seeing or sitting on them, but after comparing prices at local stores we ended up paying half price here on overstock so we got 2 for the price of what the stores wanted for 1... They look so elegant and are very comfortable, and they appear to be of excellent quality, the bar stools are made of solid wood with plush seat cushions, they went together fairly easy, we got 4 stools and it took me less then an hour to have them all assembled, Bottom line the stools looks very beautiful and are very comfortable and I am very pleased with my purchase! Thank you Overstock I wiil be back!!!
