My bar stools finally came in. I put one together this morning.
-match well in the room with black aluminum frame including "web" back
-small foot print, don't take up a lot of room
-swivel is really a "lazy susan" that can just spin with no "spring back". I like that
-while they have a back, it is pretty low. OK for sitting but looks odd with the chair empty
-they are a low seat. They really stretch to call this a 30" chair. Again, not bad when sitting in it, but looks small just sitting there. I measure and including the cushion it is just barely 29.5", but then when you sit the cushion compresses by about 2.5 inches. Course I may have built my bar a little high
-seems a little easy to tip over when sitting in it. But I am a big heavy guy
Now remember I only paid $50 per chair with free shipping on these. So I got four of them for the price of one decent chair.
My bar will pretty easily seat 6 and maybe 7, but I didn't want that many chairs in there all the time. So my plan was to have four nice matching stools always sitting around the bar and then have 2-3 other in the garage or whatever available if I need them when having a party. So I think I will continue to look for four nice stools, and rotate these to the "fill in" chairs when needed.
I'll try to post a pic later once I get them all built.
