The special/custom order stool of fire red leather and walnut blends so nicely together. The leather and walnut is of excellent quality and I found no imperfections in the workmanship and design.I purchased four of them and will be purchasing an additional two to accommodate a larger counter top we plan on installing.
ProsWas well informed by Inmod on the special order and delivery date. The shipment arrived as promised by Fedx. The design, the leather, and the walnut fit so nicely in our modern and contemporary kitchen.

swatches if you are unsure about color or texture !
Be sure to take advantage of that 5 free swatches they will send you if you aren't sure about color or fabric texture. It's on the site but customer service informed me again after I called because the color I ordered wasn't what I thought I was getting. Color isn't horribly off but it's always good to have those swatches in hand to be absolutely positive.

Love these stools!
I have 4 of these stools at my breakfast bar. We've sat on them every day for about 7-8 months and they super sturdy. The walnut color of the legs is beautiful and the black leather seats are comfy and easy to wipe clean. I get lots of compliments on them.
ProsStylish. Easy to get on and off of with the low back

High quality and great look!
These stools are the favorite thing I have in my kitchen. I was hesitant to order because I couldn't see them first, but but they are worth every penny. They are light weight and very sturdy... no wobble at all. The fabric cleans right up even though it's light gray and I have small children. The upholstery for the seat is tight and clean and they are quite comfortable (note - the seat is not deep or any bit big). I love that they are somewhat unique! I would recommend these to anyone!

Worth the wait
I ordered 3 of these for my kitchen counter after measuring and looking at tons of options. They are the perfect height and the upholstery I chose matches perfectly.
ProsCustomer service rocks! Top notch. Was able to get upholstery swatches to match to my kitchen color scheme. Super helpful and would recommend for anything.

Nice, compact counter stool.
Beautiful chair. I had a tight space to place a couple counter stools. The small profile of these stools works perfectly in the space. The company was very quick in providing fabric swatches when I made a request. I would have rated them a 5 star but there is a hint of a stain on the fabric of one of the chairs. It's very small and barely noticeable so I did not contact the company.
