I am deeply disappointed. To me "unfinished" means bare wood. The oak tops of these stools are all stained brown. I had planned to finish them with clear sealer to match my natural unstained oak floors and to work with my natural cherry island. The brown stain clashes horribly with both!!
Hi Lorraine, we are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. These stools have been finished with a sealer that gives the appearance of oiled wood to prevent discoloration.

These stools are amazing. Surprisingly very comfortable. Extremely sturdy. I used felt and cut it .5" X 2" and lined pieces to the bases to avoid scratching our floors. Tons of compliments on these stools. They made our kitchen come together.
We have had our eye on the Restoration Hardware version of these stools and just could never bring ourselves to splurge on them, and I'm SO glad I kept searching. These are beautiful and heavy - they seem just as expensive - but at a much lower cost! We get tons of compliments on them and are so happy. I was worried because some of the reviews said that they were weirdly short, but my husband and I are both tall (6'+) so they are actually a perfect height for us! Love love love! We bought 3 and they arrived in 3 separate boxes and required absolutely no assembly, so they would have been a cinch to return, if that had been the case. Excellent shopping experience all around. Thank you Wisteria!!
These stools are beautiful in person but they are much shorter than advertised. The back of the stool from the floor to the top of the seat is 23.5 inches. The front of the stool is 23 inches. The next size up seems too tall for a counter so I'm debating sending them back and finding something similar elsewhere. A real disappointment.
We get so many compliments on these- everyone who sees our kitchen asks where we got them. They are sturdy and solid, and actually extremely comfortable. Yet they are still lightweight enough to move around as needed. Couldn't recommend more!
I have been waiting for years for the right stool to come around for my kitchen island and this is it! I have a very small kitchen and these are perfect. They are also surprisingly comfortable. My husband even said they were awesome! High praise!
Just like the other review this stool is perfect. I wanted rustic not country slim not bulky and yet modern. This completely fit the bill. A great compliment to the kitchen island I constructed. No size issues. just enough for our bums and great height.
I ordered these with high hopes but was sorely disappointed to find that both stools had significant cracks on the seat. I didnt notice any balance problems though! and were it not for the cracks I would have kept them.
These are solid and well made. However, now that I've had them over two years, they have stained some. Because the seats were unfinished, I sanded them and applied tung oil. They are now beautiful and water and stain proof! To the other poster, I too have wood floors and put felt pads on bottom of each; works perfect! I also wish the short were a little taller
I had seen similar looking style stools in stores, but have always had a difficult time finding right height (counter) and finish. I finally ordered these hoping the coloring/measurements would work. Not only were they a perfect fit, but I was blown away at the craftsmanship. They are quite sturdy and incredibly high quality. Much heavier than anticipated, but not too heavy for practical purposes. They were shipped quickly and arrived well-packaged. The entire experience was fantastic. Highly recommend the stools & store.
Pros:-great look-solid wood seat -feels very sturdy -a great price -comfortable seat even my picky husband thinks soCons:-the metal base on one of the two chairs I purchased is slightly off center so we will need to put something under one side of the chair to make it more stable
We bought 3. The stools are beautiful, heavy and total quality. Unfortunately they're ruining our walnut floors. Anyone have recommendations on what to use to protect our floors with these stools.
The stools are top quality, handsome and arrived in great shape and on-time; a great value. But, they are not 23.75" tall. They are just barely over 23" and with the carved seat, less than that. While it might not sound like a big difference, I was looking for stools between 24-25" for my counter high island, so these would have been on the low end of my requirements. Being an inch shorter makes a big difference. They should change the description to reflect the actual height.
