A friend of mine purchased these, and I borrowed one to see how it would look in my kitchen after seeing how beautiful and expensive they looked in person. My husband & I have been searching for stools for over a year, and thought we had decided on another style. But seeing these changed our minds! The oak is really lovely and very comfortable to sit on. The metal is heavy duty and sturdy. They are not top heavy or easily pulled over (a concern of ours with a baby on the way). I love how they have a strong presence without taking up a lot of space...they appear light and elegant under our counter. I guarantee they will garner a lot of compliments!
The service was also exceptional: they were delivered less than 48 hours after ordering! The boxes looked battered and the packaging inside was a bit messy (bits of styrofoam sticking to everything), but the stools themselves were in perfect condition.
I get tons of compliments on these bar stools from the patrons of my restaurant. I did lots of shopping around for the perfect stool--seriously I looked for a year--and these fit the bill. High quality. Good weight. Look great after two years of daily use in a commercial setting.I dont normally leave reviews but I came back to order more stools for a new location and was shocked to see a somewhat negative review talking about the wood quality. Mine are awesome and Im a tough customer.
These stools are awesome and very comfortable. I am not sure what happened to the other reviewer but mine is beautiful and made of oak.
We received this stool after it was on back order for a long time.Finally got it with a mess of tape and paper all over the legs took an hour to get it off. My husband said that it is not Oak as advertised. It is black in spots with filler. I like the rustic look of the chair but it is not what is advertised.
