I initially bought these stools a couple of months back and I loved them so much that I recently purchased another set. Do not let the picture fool you, these stool are sturdy and very well put together. The structure of the stools reminds me of one of the "actor chairs" you find on a movie set. The stools have ample room for anyone to sit comfortably on and the chair back offers great support. The steel legs make it extremely easy for the stools to blend in with the rest of the furniture/appliances in your kitchen area. This is a very high-quality product and I strongly recommend it to potential buyers.
