I moved into a new house, and it has an island with counters that can be used for dining. I did not have bar stools and went looking for some as I thought it would be nice for guests to have a place to sit and chat during meal prep - when I can entertain again! I was delighted to find these from Macys during the annual furniture and furnishings sale. The 4 stools arrived well packaged 2 per box with no damages. Assembly was relatively easy, just took time to assemble four. I purchased in black as the house is white and gray. The stools look fabulous and are comfortable.
