    • Fabric Description: With its soft feel, excellent durability and appealing texture, Tatum is one of our most popular fabrics. Two contrasting colors of micro-boucle yarns highlight Tatum's pronounced texture, and also help disguise stains and wear. Tatum is a great choice for both small and large upholstery frames.
    • Wood: walnut See full material details
    • Finish: lacquer
    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.

              We have these in the kitchen. They are super comfortable and the fabric is fantastic. It wipes clean so quickly. I love the fact that they aren't super tall in the back but there is still some support.

                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.

                  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).
