Nice looking, functions OK. but seating uncomfortable
Tired shopper from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer
I haven't had the problem with protruding bolts that other people have mentioned, but the design is such that you have to work to keep from sliding off the chair. The seat seems to tip forward a bit and may be too shallow. The position and possibly the size of the footrest doesn't work well either. When sitting with my feet on the rest, which you must do to stay seated, my knees are bent at an acute angle--not comfortable. None of the people in my family are particularly overweight and my husband and I are average height; our size is not the issue. I kept the chairs because after a lot of shopping, the design and color were the best I found for my needs at a reasonable price. Also the primary intended users are my 3 small grandchildren. The seat size and height of the footrest are not such an issue for them.

I originally purchased 4 Klein barstools in late Nov. 2010 and was very pleased with them until 2 weeks ago, when one of the barstool's airlift mechanisms stopped working properly, resulting in a slow, steady sink to the bottom of the seat's adjustable height when sitting on it. As only my husband and I use these stools (and we're not big people), I was surprised that we'd have a problem like this so soon. [...] I emailed Red Star's customer service department nearly a week ago and have not heard a peep; I'll be calling them today but was very disappointed by the lack of a return email. In the future, I'll be wary of ordering online anything with "working parts" that could malfunction and not be able to be serviced or replaced easily. I'll also read the fine print carefully, as should anyone considering purchasing these bar stools!
Positive end result!

Still love the barstools, even though the lift mechanism on one was defective. These stools are easy to assemble and comfortable. The reason I didn't give 5 stars is that, as other reviewers of this stool on other websites have noted, you'll need to add a washer or two to each screw so that the top of the screw doesn't come up through the leather cushion. The chrome base does tend to show dust and fingerprints quickly, but that's not a deal breaker.
Well worth the price.

We bought three sets for around two sides of our kitchen counter. They look beautiful - no one would know they cost so little! Our counter is high so the stools are kept at their highest level. Our only complaint is that thet have a tendency to drop a bit when you sit on them.

I am not presently using these chairs because I recently purchased the condo and have been shipping things there. My in laws have told me that look great and are a perfect fit for the kitchen counter.
Love them and the price was right!

The chairs are perfect for my living space and they were very easy to assemble. One of my better purchases.
Good for the Price

I purchased these barstools for my new kitchen counter and so far they are working out very well. They are listed as leather, but the fabric actually looks like a man made material. I'm not really complaining because for the price, I don't care. They are cute and comfortable and easy. I like 'em.

As others have stated the screws are too long and will poke your butt when you sit on them. I addeda couple of washers and it fixed the problem.

I was surprised to find these very good-looking contemporary barstools at such a good price. The leather seats are comfortable, although we took another reviewer's advice and added two washers to each bolt to prevent them from eventually poking up through the leather. The stools were well-packaged, arrived free of any damage or missing parts, and assembly was a breeze. We've been using them for about a week, and they're very comfortable, especially for a backless stool. They swivel 360' soundlessly and smoothly and easily adjust at a touch of the lever. I'm VERY pleased and would definitely purchase again!
great style and great quality

The stools complement our streamlined minimalist kitchen /dining area perfectly. They are comfortable to sit on for computer work or eating or chatting and slide neatly under the counter when not in use. No cons for this item.
