Rated 2 out of 5Â by MeredithN Poor construction
These stools do not hold up well. The wood on the seat is salvaged, or made to look salvaged, and it is not fully fastened to the metal frame. One of mine has come in half, with only one half now attached to the frame. Guests have their rear ends pinched between them when they sit, with more than one hopping up with a yelp! The decorative rope also comes off very easily. Remember your feet will be resting on the rope, which is only glued to the frame at its ends. Because it is not attached to the frame in most places, there is a lot of tension on the spots where it is glued, and it unravels easily. We have had to glue it back in place in a number of places.
