Allen Stool is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic and inviting I have been looking for the perfect stools for our kitchen for a couple years now and couldn't be happier with these. I was worried they might look industrial and cold, but they're warm, inviting and relate well to our Tuscan/rustic decor in the kitchen area. The kids find them fun to spin on and they're comfortable and roomy enough for large men. They're versatile in case you need extra counter seats, just spin them down to size. They can be stained, yet we like as they came. The metal is not too dark and not too light- it can relate to bronze, black or stainless accents. They're gorgeous, reasonably priced and I get compliments on them all the time. They shipped fully assembled and were packaged well. After this purchase, I'm now a big fan of BD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy with solid seating which swivels up or down. These stools are perfect for our home. We have an eclectic assortment of family pieces, and these stools blend beautifully with those furnishings. Slightly industrial, slightly vintage-looking - exactly the style and quality I had hoped.

Not cheaply made at all. I love the vintage look and they fit perfectly in the decor. Thank you for a fantastic transaction. I will be a repeat customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for my studio I have been searching for a solid functional stool for some time and after and exhaustive on line search found Ballard and this stool and decided to give it a try. An expensive stool for an art studio, but still, it has the comfort and the design, and it's build solid. Excellent product - I might buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bar stools Sturdy design, good quality, not too heavy so they are easy to push under the counter, seat is not too big either, perfect for the occasional need to sit at the counter. Seat slightly wobbles as expected since it sits on a spindle. Sturdy packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is high quality and great features. I love the quality of the proudct, the functionality, and the look. These stools are adjustable to any height. I have 3 of them now and plan on purchasing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and good-looking I love this stool and I suspect I use it in in more ways than most people. I selected the backless version because it takes up almost no visual space, tucking neatly beneath the overhang of my small kitchen island. The seat is comfortable but I wish the pecan had a slightly darker stain -- it looks a bit too new for the industrial-style metal framework. I imagine it will darken with age and use, though. The height adjusts easily with a simple screw. I should mention that my apartment is rather small and includes a fiber studio with weaving looms, spinning wheels and sewing equipment. There simply isn't room for furniture that doesn't work hard. I use this stool at full height for breakfast and food prep at the kitchen island. Swiveled way down, it's a perfect spinning stool. Midway, it works for sewing, weaving or desk work. And it looks very stylish doing all these things. I am thinking about getting a second one....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these unexpected stools! I was looking for something different when I started searching for barstools. I have traditional cabinets, but didn't want traditional barstools. When I saw these I knew they were it! Love that they are adjustable, the seat is the perfect size to accommodate everyone, and they aren't bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with these stools! Love the adjustable height, the look and the comfort of these stools. I highly recommend them. My neighbor saw them and ordered 5 for her house. They came super fast and required no assembly...Great price as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our stool is perfect for the kitchen counter Just what we needed for the kitchen - helpful when we have lots of prep to do and standing gets tiring. We can adjust for our different heights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stools are well made and very comfortable. Love them!! I purchased 2 of the allen stool for my kitchen. they are comfortable to sit on. the foot rest is just the perfect height. they are sturdy and do not feel as if they would tip over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Find! I love my new stool! It is perfect, just what I needed in the kitchen. I would recommend this product to everyone, love the old world design but think it would work with modern decor as well. So glad I found it in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Allen barstools. They arrived assembled which was great. They are sturdy. I did stain the tops which brought out the beautiful wood. I would highly recommend these and would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allen stool g-r-e-a-t!!! The two backless Allen stools we purchased for our kitchen island did not disappoint. The solid metal legs and web frame are beautifully welded and rest on sturdy rubber feet with no wobbling. The mango wood seat is delightfully finished with a well applied metal band around the edge secured with charming, old world fasteners. The screw lift makes it infinitely variable for all who sit under the counter. Finally, the metal is smoothly finished with a coat of rubbed bronze effect paint. We will enjoy these for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect stools for all heights I have a growing family and these adjustable stools are perfect for accommodating our height preferences. They are sturdy and with their design, tip resistent. I was expecting to add padding to the legs of the stool, but was pleasantly surprised to find padding already in place.
Date published: 2013-07-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect adjustable stool After reading previous good reviews written about the Allen Stool, I purchased 2 for a birthday gift. They are perfect for just about any area in the kitchen and / or bar. With easily adjustable height, they provide any member of the household with comfortable seating. I agree with previous comments concerning the dull finish on the wood, and may elect to refinish at a later date, but the birthday person likes the industrial look exactly the way it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic Charm I had searched for a long time for stools to complete our shaker style kitchen. We have an island made of antique pine, so wanted something that was rustic, and yet sturdy. These stools are perfect, and the adjustable height is really useful when smaller children visit and need the extra height. The stools are heavy enough to prevent easy tipping, and yet light enough to move without a problem. I was a bit concerned when some reviews had mentioned rough edges, but the 4 we received are perfect with just a little roughness to the wooden seats, which is no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stools These stools are very sturdy and stylish. I love the industrial look! I had been looking around for these stools a few different places. These were definately much better than some of the other stools I saw. The only negative about them is the color of the wood. I was hoping they would have a warmer, slightly redder tone to them but they are more of a flat brown pecan color. I read that some people changed the color of the stain, but I'm hesitant to do that. So other than the color of the wood, the stools are perfect. They look great in my kitchen. I'm happy I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality built and sturdy After reading previous reviews on this product and comparing it to other "similar" stools offered on-line we decided to purchase two of these stools for our newly renovated kitchen with "eat in" kitchen island. I was pleasanly surprised when they arrived fully assembled and ready to place at the island. They were immediately put to great use as everyone decided that these were the best seats in the house even though I have cushioned chairs just beyond the kitchen island at our dining room table. They became so popular with everyone wanting to sit at the island that we recently purchased two more. I have owned these stools now for 5 months and they are holding up well with the daily use and are extremely well built and sturdy. I wish now we would have built a bigger island so that I could have a few more Allen stools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier! I purchased these stools before we moved into our new house and crossed my fingers that they would work out. Well, they look amazing! They are so stylish and sturdy...great for my 2 kids to climb on without worrying about them tipping over. I also love the feet on them on my hardwood (no worries about scratches). I also didn't realize how important it is to not have a back on my kitchen island stools....this way the backs don't get in the way when the stool is not in use. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE them! We ordered four of these to go at a kitchen island seating area. They are SO perfect in the space and they are comfortable as well. I love that my small daughter can adjust her seat so she can sit eye-level with her older brother. They are sturdy, well-made, solid stools. LOVE them!
