The Niles barstool is a great addition to your home. The beauty of the piece stems from the simple seat design, upholstered in white faux-leather with contrasting black powder coated metal base and footrest. the square base allows for added stability. The pneumatic (air lift) mechanism is operated via a lever below the seat and allows to adjust the height of the stool according to your needs. on top all of that, the seat swivels too!
