Not very sturdy. We had to return these stools for another set, but had the same problem. When you sit on them there is a cracking sound. The wood underneath the seat is very thin. The look nice but if you weigh more than 160 pounds, there could be a problem. #sweepstakes
This stool looks great (espeically for the price point) and would have worked perfectly in the space we intended it for. Sadly it rocked. We disassembled and tried reassembling and still rocks. I tried out the models in the store..they also rock. Such a bummer. Should have self leveling feet or something if they couldn't make it sturdy.
Price is great. They have started sagging a little already though since we use them 3 times a day. When my husband sits on it, it pops. It's like it can't hold his 185 lbs well maybe? It isn't the legs popping, so I'm not sure what's going on.
