After comparing bar stools at local stores, I decided to surf for a better deal. I was apprehensive to purchase without seeing or sitting on them, but I have to admit we were pleasantly surprised. When they arrived the first thing I checked was the quality...it was there. The first one was put together, and we were really pleased at how easy they were to assemble. We were very surprised when all were in place, because they not only looked nice, they swiveled perfectly and they were comfortable. Best part was we saved $1400.00!
