John Lewis Matilda Bar Chair
Matilda high Back Bar stool
Very Comfortable but a dangerous design defect as seen in other reviews.
The tack welded base can dislodge causing the stool to lose stability. An accident waiting to happen

These chairs Do not last more than 12 months
Great chairs nice looking and Sturdy
but unfortunately they do not last
After about 6-8 months the rim on the bottom of both chairs came off
Then they started to rock and become unsafe to sit on
There are only 2 adults in the house and they are not used all the time so I would not recommend
We have contacted j Lewis for a refund.

Poor quality seat covers
I've had these stools for about 18 months now and would not recommend them. The leather of the backs started to fray along the edges within days, such that JL actually replaced one of the stools for me. The replacement is exactly the same. I use one of the stools every day and the leather of seat of this one has also cracked around the edge of the seat pad and around the very edge next to the stitching. Very disappointing as from a colour and design point of view they are perfect. Too expensive to be having to replace every 18 months.

Do not buy!
I bought two of these stools. They are used every day. Within 6 months they started squeaking and the base holding the main upright came loose and caused the stool to wobble.
Thank god for John Lewis and there superb aftercare service. They were replaced with no questions asked. But guess what happened after a 6 months.....yep, exactly the same problem!!....total waste of money

Excellent Quality and Easy to Assemble
Delivered very promptly. Took about 15 minutes to assemble, most of that time was removing the packaging and clearing out out the screw holes. Bit of faffing about getting the screws to fit but once cleaned out they worked.
They come with an allen key so you don't need a tool kit.
The rubber washer someone else has referred to should be removed as per the instructions. I don't think it is meant to stay on the chair.
The bubble wrap leaves a patterned residue on the leather. I am hoping it will come out.
Very comfy as I write this review at my kitchen island in my new house.

Matilda Bar Chair, Black
Next day delivery to local Waitrose store was brilliant, matched by a really superb product, easy to assemble and very comfortable, I purchased two chairs that initially I thought were a little expensive, but having used them for a while, I noe think they are very good value for money. I now prefer using my laptop on the breakfast bar whilst sitting in the Matilda Bar Chair.

Awkward to assemble
Bought 2 of these from a store without being told that they were self-assembly. I found them awkward to assemble - each one took about half an hour, which was irritating when I hadn't been warned.
Working OK so far but will watch carefully given some of the other comments about these stools.

Didn't last very long
We have sent these back after 18 months. The edges have frayed, one started to rock, they started to come apart. Disappointing, but at least they have been refunded without any difficulty by JL
