Great bar height chairs!
These are really nice chairs. Sturdy, comfortable, and attractive.
Bought them on sale for $50 each, at that price point, it would be very difficult to find something of this quality in another shop. I shop around a lot.
As with any furniture you put together yourself (that isn't glued) you should tighten the screws after a few weeks, once everything has had a chance to settle. That's not a defect.
I wish they would come in dinning chair height, so that I could have a matching set.
Hope CT will add them to the "chair" search, rather than listing them under stools and folding chairs.

Fantastic counter chair
We've been looking for 3 counter chairs for our kitchen island and these fit the bill perfectly.
Everywhere else prices for counter chairs were outrageous, but at 45% off (regular 99$ each) there was no way we could overlook this product.
These counter chairs are comfortable, well made and sturdy. The color is a medium brown and has a bit of red in it where the grain of the wood is more open.
PS: Do yourself a favor and use something other than the allen key for tightening all the screws to save time on assembly.

I am really happy with the quality and look of these stools. I purchased a table elsewhere, and was hard pressed to find counter-height chairs to coordinate that I felt were of a good quality. I have had these chairs for only a few days so far, but am impressed with the weight, and solid construction. I feel as though I can comfortably use them and not worry about damaging them. I was a bit concerned about buying them without being able to try them out first (the display model in the store was way up on a shelf, and I couldn't try it out first, but I am happy with both their comfort and their sturdiness.
They were straightforward enough to assemble - don't tighten anything until it is all assembled, otherwise it is hard to get it balanced; and make sure to put the cross-braces in before attaching the front legs, otherwise they won't fit easily.
All in all, I am very happy with these chairs, and will likely get 2 more to round out my set. I don't know if they go on sale (I paid 99$), but they are well worth full price.

Returned 2 Defective
The first stool I purchased at half price was good except the wooden seat had the holes drilled in the wrong spot so I returned and purchased another one and it had two front legs the same in the box, so obviously the quality department does not inspect the product before it gets shipped out! So either than receiving TWO defective stools ... overall I am happy with this product for the price! It is sturdy and looks great at my counter bar! Altogether I purchased three, so once I receive the proper legs I will be happy!

Purchased these chairs as the chairs I bought for first choice from Sears did not work out. These chairs were bought on sale. They are very comfortable. Can sit comfortably on them for quite awhile. A few screws have come lose in the chairs over time but easily fixed (glued in place). Overall I would recommend them.

I purchased 2 of these mission stools on sale and put them together myself (single lady). I was nervous as I thought I would have to use a drill, but I only had to use the allen key that came with the product. Instructions were easy to follow and the 2 mission stools look fabulous at my breakfast bar. Very solid, very sturdy...highly recommended!
