We recently finished a huge addition on our home and I can say with no doubt that these chairs are absolutely the best purchase I made this year. I shopped at every furniture place within 50 miles of my house for six bar stools and I was very disappointed in the price and the quality I was finding. I am very picky when I purchase furniture. I decided to take a chance and buy these stools on Overstock.com without seeing them in person and was extremely satisfied with my purchase. These stools are very sturdy and better yet no assembly required. I would highly recommend these stools. I have very high expectations when I purchase products and with that said I was extremely satisfied with these stools.
