Terrific island/bar stools

    Customer comments about Afton Counter Stool with Upholstered Seat:

    I purchased 3 of the Afton Counter stools for use at our kitchen island. The chairs are very sturdy and my 2 and 4 year old boys enjoy sitting on the stools for a quick snack. We went with the sunbrella material and it cleans up spills and food very well. The chairs are comfortable to sit on for moderate period of time. I'm happy with the R&B purchase and quality of the product.

      The Afton bar height stools are as beautiful as they are well made and functional.

      Our first experience with Room and Board was very positive and we plan to work with them again.

      Customer comments about Afton Counter Stool with Upholstered Seat:

      The fabric is not coated with any protective material, which I would have liked since we use these in the kitchen. As a bonus, it came with felt on the bottom of each leg (we have hardwood floors--and actually the delivery person may have applied the felt himself--we were not home for the delivery so I am not sure).

          saw these in person at the SF store and was surprised by how comfortable they were. the padded seat isn't too thick, but gives a nice amount of cushion and could see my kitchen island also turning into a bit of a workspace with these.

          Service and delivery comments:

          delivery guys were great. called to let me know they would be at my place in 15min. had everything up to my place quickly and carefully. really impressed with R&B's service.

              We love these barstools. We purchased 6 months ago for the bar in our kitchen after completing a kitchen remodel, and couldn't be happier. Sometimes I work from home, and end up sitting in them most of the day while I do my work on my laptop. They are comfortable and offer just the right amount of support. We purchased the cherry wood with black leather upholstery. I highly recommend!

              Customer comments about Afton Counter Stool with Upholstered Seat:

              I use the stool with my primary kitchen table. I bought two stools. I love the design! My three big cons have to do with the seat cushion. First, the upholstry fabric choices are a bit limited, no customizing. Second, try as I might to correct for this, one of the stools is unbalanced. I really should send it back, but I needed it for slew of house guests this summer, and didn't want to wait for replacement. Third, the seat cushion filling seems a bit thin. The stool is basically comfortable, but a bit more cushion would finish this piece of perfectly. In sum, it seems odd to me that they would make such a well crafted wood stool, and then skimp on the cushion.
