If you're looking for the absolute perfect bar stool then look elsewhere. If you don't mind a few manufacturing imperfections then this stool is a great bar stool for the money. I ordered 3 of these stools in chocolate brown. Love the ease of the microfiber and firm enough to be comfortable but you don't slide off. The finish on the legs was less than perfect. In fact, on one stool, the bottom of the rungs was unfinished...just some overspray, somebody missed it. I know these are going to be used and abused by my kids so the less than perfect finish didn't bother me but if you're a perfectionist, move on. Good value.
