2 problems so far... After one sitting my daughter put greasy fingers on the seat and sides and it is very difficult to get the stain removed. Also, after a week, one of the chairs broke and, whenever anyone sits on it, the stool lowers to the ground. We have already arranged to mail the defective stool back and there is a new one on the way. Overstock really stood behind this product. The stools are extremely comfortable and are just a bit higher than most you find which is just what we needed. Our bar is a little higher than average so these stools are perfect.
