Ordered 4 of these stools. They were easy to assemble and are very sturdy. Just the right mix of farmhouse/industrial style we were wanting at a good price. We had one issue with a stripped screw on one of the seats and called customer care who immediately arranged to send a replacement. My one issue is the color of the wood. The color in the picture is the color on the underside of the seat which is the color I was wanting. The color of the top of seat and the back panel is brown. It is weird that the underside and the top side don't look anything alike! They still look nice with our color scheme but not want I was really wanting. That is the only reason I took off a star.
