These are lovely stools BUT sadly very poorly manufactured. Several of the embedded nuts in the bentwood have been too deeply placed or placed at a the wrong angle so the bolts can’t reach them. The alignment is also very poor with a lot of wrestling needed to try to get them together. I spent several very frustrating hours eventually putting together 3 stools out of 4 stool parts but one of the stools has only 2 of the 4 screws holding the footrest in, so won’t last long. Such a a shame as they are great looking - just poorly made.
