The stools are the perfect height for our kitchen Island. They look great with our cabinets and more expensive than the actual price. The workmanship is great, and easy to assemble. The legs are knotched for a tight fit and the hardware comes with locking washers, so there is little chance of the screws loosening. We were disappointed to find "O" does not ship this product to Hawaii, so we had it delivered to a continental US address and than forwarded. The cost of shipment almost equalled the the price of the stools so we won't do that again. Overall great product for the price, however.
