We love these stools. They are great for the money: they swivel; the height is adjustable and the lever works well; they have a comfortable foot rest; they have real leather seats and chrome bases, they look awesome; they are comfortable and we love them in our contemporary kitchen! Just keep in mind, you get what you paid for. If you want fine leather and stitching, buy the real expensive ones that look like this. We couldn't be happier with these chairs for the money.
