I was a little concerned with purchasing these online, without trying them in person. However, they are great! They are very sturdy and great looking. Some other round barstools felt like you were falling forward, out of them. But these do not have that tendency and you feel like you're seated very comfortably. The assembly was very, very simple...you just attach the seat to the base. The swivels work great. And, these were much less expensive than other retailers sell them for (under the model name of Kennedy).

Chair arrived in less than five days. Nice appearance, simple to assemble. The chair back seems disproportionately smaller than I like. Like a person with a small head. It does set comfortable, and that is what counts. One smudge spot on the finish on the front of the chair back at the bottom of the circle where the spoke meets the circle. Not bad enough to return. The turning mechanism is stiff. e.g. you can't tap it and expect it to rotate. It is so stiff, you either need to be setting in it, or put a foot on the bottom ring to get it to rotate. Turns just fine, when you are setting down. One of the armless chairs in the store has a brass cover over the foot rest. That would have been nice on this much more expensive chair. You know it is going to wear overtime and the brass guard would prevent wearing. In hind sight, I wish I had bought a table with the chairs. The one we purchased at PierOne needed to be a 1/4" taller to allow the bar stool arms to fit under the edge of the table. We hope to resolve this with a foot pad under the table legs. Lesson learned, purchase a bar stool - table set to make sure they go together.

I ordered these online and they arrived within a few days. Assembly was easy, and they are now in my bar area. They look absulutely great and they are also comfortable. I saw the exact same chairs in the Frontgate catalog for $140 more each! Thanks Sam's Club for saving me a lot of money!

Saw these barstools in the GrandinRoad Catalog for twice the price. They are beautiful. Ordered four and didn't open for 30 days since I was moving. When I opened one had been damaged by the shipper and sams.com was wonderful. Sent a label for pickup and the new stool arrived the next day. Wonderful quality and terrific service and did I mention the fast shipping.

My husband and I had spent months searching for that right bar stool to finish off his Irish inspired man cave. We found these on CSN under their brand name of Kennedy and loved them but could not bring ourselves to spend over $400 per stool. We kept going back to it though and one night through a random google search we brought it up on the Sams Club website, but its under the name Princeton. A huge difference in price! We order 5 late on a Saturday night and their were delivered Tuesday morning. Great price and super fast shipping! And sure enough the tags hanging off of them said Kennedy. Assembly was 5 - 10 minutes per stool. Quality is top of the line. Solid construction, high quality hardware and they're comfortable. If you google American Heritage bar stools you'll find that these are some of the best you can buy.
