The stools arrived on time. The paint finish and overall aesthetic was beautiful and as expected. However, each set of stools arrived with large fractures (splits) in the wood due to the interlocking design. That said as tables we loved them so filled the fractures (some 6mm wide) with wood glue and had B&Q match the paint colour to finish them off. So...happy with the final use as tables but would not recommend use as interlocking stools.
