5.0 out of 5 stars | Good looking stools
Good looking stools. Some creases on the material (which is obviously cheap leatherette). Cannot ask too much for $75 on a pair of stools. One came in with a cut on the material and I requested a replacement, which arrived about 7-10 days later. Good customer service.

4.0 out of 5 stars | "Weebles Wobble, But They Don't Fall Down"
I bought these to compliment an arcade cabinet project I just finished. I needed some comfortable, tall swivel stools. The price of these were attractive and after reading all the reviews, I pulled the trigger and made the purchase. Easy to put together; took just about 5 minutes per chair. one of the chairs had a bent metal base that connects to the underside of the chair and luckily I was able to use a pair of heavy pliers to bend the metal back into it's original shape. I'm pretty sure by the way it was packed that this didn't occur in shipping but prior to shipping. Regardless, it didn't affect the installation and not noticeable at all when I completed the assembly. Chairs swivel easily. Getting the seat to go down (while sitting on it) is a piece of cake; just pull the lever on the underside. It's not easy to go down while off of it. I have to basically drape myself over the seat to put weight on it while I hold the lever up. Makes sense to lower it while sitting on it, but just thought I'd throw that out there. Now, getting it to go up, I had to get off of it, adjust to the height and then get back on. I don't know if a small person could manage this upward adjustment while sitting, but maybe a child. Does it matter? Probably not, but it's out there so you know. Now, for the stability. I've read a lot of people say it's stable even on carpet. Not many people seem to mention it can feel wobbly or unstable when you are getting on it, especially if you have the chair in the higher positions. Once on it and you are settled, it feels stable and I have no concerns, but getting on and scooting around on it to position myself in the center of the chair feels unnatural and feels like it could tip. The chairs remind me of those Weeble Wobble toys back in the day that you can push over but they pop right back up and share the tagline I used for this review. Now, myself and family aren't tall people so we have to get on our toes to get up on the chair, but we wanted the chairs high based on the arcade machine. And since the chair could go even higher than where we have it set, it's not unreasonable to think it shouldn't feel so unstable getting on it at the height we have it. Yes, we are on carpet, but it's old, worn-down carpet; it doesn't have a thick pile or thick padding it may have had back in it's hay days. I did try this on a wood floor and it did have a lot more stability getting on, but since it was mentioned several times by other reviewers, I decided to concentrate on this point and give my personal feedback. So, let's talk about the 4 stars. It's all subjective, but if I could, I'd give it 3.5. The price point is what pulled me in. The quality is ok; not bad, not great. It serves it's purpose I got them for. 3 people are using these chairs quite frequently since the purchase and stick by the wobbliness feeling comments I made above even after getting on and off many times over. So, that has to account for some deduction. It's cushiony for sure. I like the quilted, stitched look, but the threads in the stitching are sticking out in places so if you're looking for perfection in appearance, maybe go for a higher price point/higher quality chair. The included pics show how I used them for my purposes and focus on the carpet they are used on, the height and the stitching.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Nice for the price.
So far almost perfect, a week or two after I assamble them an plastic black ring felt off from the top of the chair, as that ring was off it place the bottom chrome scratch, I place this ring back on its place but keep falling down, after two months I use some duct tape to keep this ring tight on its place, Unfortunately too late all four high chairs are scratch all ready, on the picture show my 36" couter table and different high from the high chairs 24" 26" 29" and 32" from the sit.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Poor quality
I ordered these stools and they were initially quite easy to put together, until it came time to bolt the stand to the seat. The bolt holes on the stand didn’t quite line up with the threaded insets in the seat. I tried several combinations to start the bolts and it wouldn’t work. The threads on the bolts stripped, without using tools. I put it all back in the box and requested a refund. Initially, I received a single return shipping label. Unfortunately, I had two boxes. I communicated with the seller, which is not Amazon. They asked me to take pictures and send them the pictures. They did want to remedy the issue. I could have done it myself in 5 minutes but that besides the point. A couple days later, I received two shipping labels so I shipped the boxes. I didn’t get a refund for several weeks and until I called Amazon to complain. The problems as I see them: Very low quality offshore junk. Low grade hardware. Difficulty getting a refund. Update: Yesterday, I received an email from the seller offering a full refund in exchange for me deleting my negative review. It’s good that they monitor the reviews. Trouble is, I already received a full refund in exchange for returning the defective stools. I suppose I could get another ”refund” but that would be unethical, just like trying to make honest, but not flattering, product reviews disappear.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Stylish set of beige-soft cream colored bar stools.
When the packages arrived; there were labels on each box instructing you not to open them on the side where the cushions are located so that you will not tear them. Everything inside was neatly packaged and protected. The written instructions were great on the front side of the page. On the back of the page disregard; there is no need to use a hammer period. The four bar stools only took a total of 20 minutes to assemble. You must take off the black caps on the poles prior to attaching them to the chairs. These stools have 3 adjustment levels; which is great. We recommend upon sitting on them the 1st time; position yourself in the far back end of the seat and move side to side, and 360 degrees around. Then get off of the stool and adjust them up at the highest level, then sit on it again and adjust them down to the second lowest level and to the next lowest level before getting off of it. These chairs are comfortable and beautiful. We purchased them on sale and we are getting what we expected. Do not lean forward nor sit at the edge of the chair because this is how I can see someone possibly falling forward or off, if they are not using them at the bar. I also would not recommend small children using them unless they are old enough to follow your guidance and direction. Perhaps if they had a wider base; it would provide extra stability and support because there is a slight wobble upon turning around full circle and leaning forward. Other than that, we are happy with our purchase.
