I love this barstool so much that I came back and bought 3 more. Some assembly is required, but don't let that stop you from buying these stools. Assembling the stools didn't take a lot of time at all. I was skeptical about buying the stool at first because I wanted something that offered back support. I am so glad that I took a chance with this stool. This barstool is very comfortable. The stool's seat is vinyl, so you don't have to sorry about sliding and slipping off of it when you sit down. Quality product for a great price.
