I had misgivings about buying this stool but I decided to go ahead and try it out anyway. I was concerned about the comments that stated how hard it was to unfold. I received this item one day earlier than the promised delivery date, which was the 20th. This is a surprisingly sturdy stool for this price. There's nothing cheap or shoddy about the metal, the design, or the construction. The seat is bigger, wider and more thickly cushioned than I expected it to be. Now for the set-up: This stool unfolded quickly enough, but sure enough I couldn't figure out how to fold it back up. Then I realized that all I had to do was push down on the small silver button on the upper part of one of the legs, right below the seat. When I did that and pulled down on the legs they slid right down once the silver button is below the hole. The leg assembly slides over the silver button and the legs fold up, no problem. I don't anticipate any problems with this stool. I'm not going to use it every day, but it seems sturdy enough for that kind of use. I imagine it would also hold up well with daily use too.
they make 2 hts in this stool- one closer to chair ht and this one I purchased by mistake is a bit taller- but NOT quite bar stool ht. your feet still touch the floor. We had a smaller ht stoll recently 'collapse' and had to replace it. The smaller stool also had a 50# LESS wt capability listed. I dont know how long this will last- it is built pretty much the same- the smaller stool legs 'spread' and this one has nothing to prevent that same 'spread' and collapse- but it is stickered to have a 50# heavier load. The cushion is decent, but waiting to see how well the vinyl holds up as well as the caps on the legs. It is light weight to carry- thats another plus.
I bought this item for my kitchen and it was okay. I happened to sit on it two days ago and the stool just gave way broken. I had my warning sings it was shaky first then it gave way. Not yet a year old.

My husband and I purchase this for his photoshop and he loves it. He went back the next day and got another one. It works great for what we are using it for.
