Barstools arrived within a couple of days in excellent condition. The most time consuming was removing the packaging material from the bar stools. The seat cushions installed easily with the enclosed screws. Although the stools are very lightweight they can hold a heavy person (250-300 lbs.). There is one minor thing that I'm not thrilled about: the leatherette seat (next time I would choose a bar stool with genuine leather seat). Overall I'm satisfied with price, style and quality.
