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.
Better than I expected!!!!

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
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.
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.
Very Solid Seats

For her birthday my wife wanted 3 of these stools to go with our breakfast bar in our house.

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.
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.
Quality without the high cost.
Ted from Elizabeth, PA– Verified Buyer
I wanted to buy nice bar stools without breaking the bank. These looked good online and the price was definitely right. Very classy looking. Easy to assemble. Only two problems: they don't self-center. I plan to rig a small elastic (bungy-type) under the seat to help it center itself. Don't know if that will work or not. It's really no biggie. Just a personal preference. Also, a few of the weave pieces on the backs have come loose. I simply reposition them (very easy but a hassle). My plan is to run a bead of hot glue along the edge and that problem will be solved. If you want a nice bar stool without spending your entire budget, you should buy these. Oh yes, there is a similar bar stool in this price range that has a black faux leather padded back. While the stools seats are exactly the size, the positioning of the black padded back takes up nearly one quarter of the seat surface. I bought one to see (before buying 6 of them). It was not returnable so I ended up taking the back off completely and using that one behind the bar. The Sumatra one is perfectly comfortable and the back supports. My guests think I spent a fortune on these bar stools. I'm sure not going to tell them I didn't!! Buy them!
