Delivered in 3 days, and flat packed as many of them are. Assembled 2 stools in 20 minutes and they look solid, more importantly they are solid and sit sturdy on the floor. Made in China, but well built and comfortable to use as a breakfast bar type of stool. Would recommend but note they aren't the cheapest and that was a decision I made by paying a bit more and hoping for a good quality product, I got it. They are a very good stool.
