I just received my barstool yesterday. It arrived pretty quickly, only a few days after I ordered it. I only ordered one to make sure I liked it and I plan to order 3 more this week. It looks just like the picture. It was fairly easy to assemble. My only complaint is I wish the bar stool had a lower back that was closer to the height of the counter top, because I would rather it not cover the view of the island, but that is just my personal preference. Overall, the bar stool appears to be sturdy, comfortable, and looks exactly as pictured.
