Like it says in the title - I could not be happier. I read the reviews and thought I knew what to expect - perhaps "a knock-off that wasn't quite the real thing but, hey, its cheap"! In fact it is a reproduction of the much more expensive French original, a reproduction that is all but perfect. (I also bought the arm chairs - and have the same view of them - so the reviews are pretty much a cut and past copy!) They are slick, comfortable, attractive and sturdy. The black gloss paint is perfect with a very nice shine. They stack - but I don't want to stack them - they are so cute all glossy straight from the box! No dents, scratches or flaws at all. The black paint job is deep and shiny. The packing was through and secure, I just loved them from the moment I unpacked them. And the price - what can one say except - sorry France, the design for these stools may have originated in your land some 100 years ago but the current place to have them made is China. (Sorry, but its true). [You can check the French prices online via *** dot com or at the French manufacturer's website - check and then come back to O.co!] If this style suits you (and its not for everyone - Grannies and certain suburbs - I mean you!) then you shouldn't hesitate, snap them up. I have mine in a minimalist - loft style place in the country in Northern California and I would post pix if I could.
