I purchased two World Market bar stools made in Thailand--which is stamped on the bottom of each stool. They broke in identical locations. They were defective--screws not long enough to go into stool leg and wood plug not large enough to meet screw. I was told that since they were purchased more than one year ago, no consideration.
I will need to get re-worked by a woodworker.
There is a difference of warranty for general use and there should be another plan for defective furniture.
Was told to return and pick up the stools. This is very poor customer service.
