I’m so very happy with my new kitchen stools so I have to show you 😉

It was my first purchase on 5Rooms, the online South African furniture and homeware store.   I’ve been eyeing out these Xavier Pauchard inspired Tolix Stools for a while, and when the one stool in our kitchen started falling apart, I just decided to order them!  I was a little skeptical about the quality from the photos… you can never tell really if they’re going to be as nice as the picture.  I couldn’t tell if they were going to be flimsy.


Well, I’m happy to report that the entire experience was awesome, I’m definitely shopping at 5rooms again.

Firstly, the estimated delivery date was clear on the page, before I even placed the order.  The date was repeated at every step in the process, and was included in the confirmation email.  According to the site, I should have expected it between the 21st and 24th of May… so I knew I was going to have to wait for them.

Imagine my surprise when I got home on Monday, and they had been delivered more than a week early!

As for the quality of the product… well, they’re sturdy steel chairs with proper rubber feet.  I think they’ll last for a long time!

And yes, that’s my husband opening a new bottle of red 😉
