Bought this for my master bedroom for a quiet space to read and meditate and it works perfect. Don't expect it to be something you sink into as it's very firm - firmer than any other piece of seating furniture I own but still great for my purposes.
It is soft and a nice looking piece of furniture, the price matches the quality. The legs have been terrible - they refuse to stay on securely and they twist and turn constantly so it is on the verge of collapse sometimes. Also the neck rest is not slanted correctly so you can't read or look down comfortably. I'm planning on replacing it after only 2 years.
