Bought two of these last year. The bases are deteriorating and the paint is flaking off. First of all the attach hardware rusted and had to be replaced (bleeding rust inside.) Now I have to disassemble and refinish the bases. They are not designed for an outside space exposed to Florida weather. I originally purchased to avoid these issues. If you can store them when not is use, they are fine and a cool concept.
I love my stools , they are made awesome. They came extremely fast and packaged perfect. They are truly unique and bring a great vibe to my backyard paradise !
These are a great addition to our new backyard bar and have been the talk of our recent parties! They are sturdy, have held up very well, and double up as an additional iced beverage space. If you're keeping them outside, add a few coats of waterproof protectant to the top or buy a cover. I will likely pick up another pair as they've worked out so well. Additionally, Torched's customer service and communication has been outstanding.
