I ordered four (yes 4!) of these barstools for my counterheight kitchen island. They are bright, sturdy, and fun! One stool was missing a part, so I contacted Overstock and they shipped a replacement part very quickly. One big plus is that these stools do not attach simply by turning a screw into a piece of wood. They have a sturdy screw which goes into a metal "screwholder" and it seems as if they will never fall apart. The only downside is that the chairs are very difficult to adjust. It is manageable, but if you will require frequent height adjustment, these may not be the chairs for you. I placed them at mid-height and they will probably stay that way for good. However, even with that said, I think these chairs are one of the best buys around! They look much more expensive than they are. And you will have a lot of fun with them.
