Rated 5 out of 5Â by MaryIII Better than expected.
I wanted these stools more for the style than something we would use a lot, and I expected them to be lightweight and cheesy like the ones sold at the superstores. I am very pleasantly surprised at how sturdy and strong they are; they fit perfectly where I wanted them at my counter breakfast bar and are very attractive. They were super easy to put together--the only problem was that there was a wooden dowel connector missing, but I found a little thing in my "junk drawer" that fit perfectly, so it wasn't a real problem for me. They are very comfortable and are getting a lot more use than I expected them to. Love, love, love these stools; so glad I found them!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Matt1 Ordered them twice, took both back!!!
Don't waste your time on these stools. On the first set I ordered, one of the cross pieces was not drilled to accommodate the screw. No big deal, I just drilled it out. Then when I went to assemble the second stool, the wood cracked before I had the screw halfway in. Took that set back and ordered another set. On the second set, one of the legs was cracked before I even started to assemble it and the pieces screwed to the bottom of the seat from the factory were loose. Save your money and buy something better than these stools. In my opinion and experience...this is nothing but junk made in Malaysia.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by 1234disappointed It would have been perfect BUT...
So disappointed. Both were very damaged. At first I was willing to put up with the chipped corners due to what seemed like the packaging on the saddle seats. But upon putting together, wood was completely split on both legs and dowels that go across. Made me question how this could of been missed when packaging up. If had not happened, they would have been ideal and even considered reordering but returning them to the local store, which was an option, was one big nightmare and very time consuming.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by stiger Great!
We just needed something basic and these have exceeded our expectations! They are a very dark brown to where they almost look black and have distressed reddish tones throughout. This is exactly what we were looking for and so are very pleased. Not too difficult to put together and paid a fair price. We have had them a month and they seem very sturdy. Fit perfectly under the bar ledge in our kitchen island.
