I Bought two of these Boraam-Industries-Inc-Sumatra-29"-Swivel-Bar-Stool-with-Cushion- in Brushed oak they were awesome. They shipped free and came quickly. I lucked out and found one that had been clearanced and it was near half price (some one had returned but nothing was broken or wrong so they discounted to $64.95) the other was full price @ $108.99 so I got two nice ones for roughly $175.00 these were made in Vietnam (Marked on Box) Now they are MFG. in China but still nice. They are distressed finish which makes real nice as well! They were a little time consuming to put together but not cheap Hard, heavy wood and strong bolts etc.. WELL MADE (optional) Example: Great value, easy assembly, durable finish like I said heavy duty and strong not really hard to put together but just quality materials so really PRO not CON
Great Stools, Poor Quality Control
Fredric Eldridge from Casselton, ND – Verified Buyer
At the outset let me say that I am not complaining about this product in any way. I am merely documenting my experiences with Wayfair and in particular the Boraam Sumatra 29 inchÂ€Â Bar stool. I had decided that I wanted these bar stools and when two of them showed up on clearance sale at Wayfair I placed an order for those two and if they were as good as I hoped I planned to order six more. The two arrived promptly and it was obvious that these had been shipped to someone else before me but that is what customer service had told me so I was not surprised. The first one went together easily and I was very pleased. When I took the second one out of the box I noted that it was not packaged as well as the first but appeared to be complete so I started the assembly. I soon discovered that the piece referred to as the apron in the instructions was cracked completely through and was unusable. I called Wayfair and they immediately agreed to refund my money for the broken stool and told me that since a broken stool was of no use to anyone I did not have to send it back. Since I wanted a total of eight barstools I went ahead and ordered seven more at that time. One of the seven stools came without the insert in the back piece that is needed for the supplied bolts to screw into. I think this is no problem because I have a spare stool for parts but it is not as simple as I thought. The first attempt was to simply remove an insert from the broken stool and put it in the hole that is missing an insert. That proves to be impossible with the tools that I have so I decide to just use the whole back from the broken stool in place of the one with the missing insert. This is when I learn that the parts of these stools are not completely interchangeable. As long as you assemble the stools from the parts that come in a single box everything goes together well but if you try to mix parts from more than one box the holes do not line up and it canÃ¢Â€Â™t be done. I was able, by selecting several parts from the broken stool as well as parts from the stool with the missing insert, to assemble one complete stool. The stools look great and they appear to be sturdy and well built. I am very satisfied with the results and the price was reasonable. All is well that ends well.
Good chairs at a good price.
Dewey from Mass – Verified Buyer
I ordered 6 of these chairs and was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality for the price. The chairs arrived quickly and were packaged well to prevent damage. Assembly of the chairs was simple with the exception of a couple of screws that were a little awkward to tighten. I assembled all 6 in about an hour and I think that I spent more time removing the protective wrapping than on actual assembly. The chairs are quite comfortable and sturdy and I think they will hold up rather well with the kids. I would recommend these chairs and I don't think you can go wrong at this price for them.

I bought stools to match my knotty pine gameroom, and these look great. The came earlier than expected, and really are comfortable. Took some time to assemble, and one of the stools (out of 5) had issues with a stripped screw or something, but my handy husband was able to figure it out after a few expletives and I didn't need to send it back. It took us about 2.5 hours to assemble them all (not including one w/ stripped screw), I unpacked and set everything out as he assembled. Overall they seem to be great quality and look great in the space. I like the foot rail, padded seat, and the fact that they swivel, as I didn't want to add a footrail to our bar...Four stars due to stripped screw and extra time to fix that seat.
Great looking stools with solid construction
John from Westbury, NY – Verified Buyer
I ordered 4 stools for an open kitchen we recently renovated. We needed a contemporary look with solid construction that would withstand 3 active teenagers who use the counter for everything. These stools are a rich espresso color and are well built. The basketweave back is a nice detail. They were a little cumbersome to put together at first but as i put one together the others came together far easier. I would give it 5 stars if the assembly was easier but the look is a 5, the assembly is a 4.

The six Sumatra 29" Swival Bar Stools arrived quickly. The price was better or as good as any other source we checked. The stools are sturdy and attractive. One was drilled wrong in the factory. I returned it and one other after I discovered that I didn't have room around our new island/dining table for all six. No problem. Return shipping was free and simply required me to print a return label from the Wayfair website. My credit card was credited promptly for the two chairs I returned.
Looks just like the picture
Rebecca from Scott Depot, WV
Very nice bar stools. They are a bit light so they slide easily on the tile floor. I plan on putting a rubber slide proof pad on the bottom of each leg. Hopefully that will stop the sliding and I can get on one with out banking it against the wall and leaving a mark. Pros: Bautifully made chairs that matched my maple cabinets. that have a coffee wash on them. Cons: As I said they are much lighter than my original sools and they slide easily.
Impressed with Wayfair!
Meredith from Little Egg Harbor, NJ – Verified Buyer
I ordered 3 bar stools on a Thurs. night online...had them on Sat. Unfortunately, one was damaged, but I called and they sent a new one immediately and told me to donate/toss the damaged one. I was so pleasantly surprised how they handled it! I will not hesitate to order again from Wayfair. Almost like doing business in the 'old days'! They were great! We're very happy with the stools as well.
Very Solid Seats
Clint from Roanoke, VA
For her birthday my wife wanted 3 of these stools to go with our breakfast bar in our house. I was very impressed with the quality of these stools as they are made very solid and are extremely comfortable. The tools to put them together left a bit to be desired because the Alan Wrenches were too long to fit into most of the spaces for the screws which ended up making for long and cumbersome construction sessions. However it was a small price to pay for such beautiful stools.
Richard from Ballwin, MO – Verified Buyer
I purchased 5 stools the workmanship was exceptional, no flaws. The instructions however were as most of the foreign writings, not clear and they left out how to assemble the back. After the first one ,the rest went good but if the instructions were better it would have been easier.
