soft wool is remarkable, but stools did not arrive in time
May 7, 2018
Ordered in baby blue wool with beech / natural wood, the cushions are plump and a dream to sit on especially with the soft wool upholstery. 3 star rating because of how long they took as I needed them sooner for a housewarming party I was having but it worked out fine as most of the place was fully furnished by the date

It was a real challenge shopping for new stools as there was LITERALLY nothing out there that i felt even came close to the style I was looking for then lo and behold - i stumble upon these on inmod and they are EXACTLY what i envisioned for my kitchen a long with the right price as well - very glad I didn't settle for something else!

very comfortable - glad to replace my old stools
February 9, 2018
Impressive, sturdy, love the softness of the fabric - the slight curves and backrest are extremely comfortable comparable to the perfectly straight frame on my old chairs - you can tell the difference, its so much better!

Love the rounded edges and accent on the footrest, really nice and classic design, i liked having a lot of upholstery and wood options to pick from - FYI walnut and jewelry blue look great together!

love these stools, just not crazy about footrest
December 6, 2017
Fantastic look and perfect height, however, not really crazy about the bar on the footrest once they arrived but i'll make do, it probably adds extra support even if the footrest is 100% my favorite - good thing its at the bottom anyway
