I rarely review products, but I always rely on reviews, so I looked forward to writing this one. We loves these counter stools. We were reluctant to custom order, sight unseen, but the customer service rep @ Eurway was so helpful - he sent me color swatches of the base and seat, and described in writing and over the phone what color combinations worked well and were most popular. We chose the stratus cushion and black coral base. They are perfect for our new kitchen -sturdy, clean lines and contemporary, but still very comfortable. They came assembled (major bonus- all we had to do was screw in the seat) and were carefully packaged and shipped. Highly recommend the company and the product!
