I was very pleased with these bar stools. They are very elegant looking and my friends love them. I was surprised with how light they are. We had read the reviews and we have no problem with the bolts in the seats. We don`t even feel them. The only thing we notice were the color of the seats are brown, where they looked a lot lighter in the picture. I was pleasantly surprised though, because I have a lot of brown in my kitchen. Jpr.
