This is the perfect little chair. I was very worried that it wouldn't be comfortable because of how small it is, but I love it. I'm 5'7" and I can sit in it very comfortably. We have two of them with a table between them. The leather is very soft but the cushion is firm. I think they will hold their shape well and I hope we can use them for many years.
As an occasional chair for someone, this is fine. It's small, and low, and fairy simple in style, so it could go with lots of other furnishings. However, when I have company over, I find that I tend to sit in this chair, so they don't. The back is VERY straight, and the cushion and sides extremely firm. I have tried putting a small throw pillow in the back of the chair for more cushy back support, but the chair's depth doe not really allow for that comfortably. However, it's not bad, lightweight, and is easy to move. I also managed to get the box up to my third-floor apartment quite easily (up narrow old stairs), and installing the legs was a breeze.
I ordered two of these chairs for my den and I am so pleased with this purchase. They are a great value for the price and they look very much like real leather quality chairs. The seat is very firm so don't expect to sink down into the cushion but it is exactly what I was looking for in my space. A great reading chair. Thank you for offering such wonderful products Overstock!!
The chair arrived in a box that looked like a truck had run over it. Fortunately there were only a few minor scrapes that I decided to overlook. Assembly took 5 minutes... just screwing the legs on. The chair is comfortable but not super solid feeling if you shift around. It looks great and I'm pleased overall.
This was purchased to help my then 88 year old mom suffering from macular degeneration be able to enjoy watching her TV close up. She had been using a folding chair to get her close to the screen. One evening she fell asleep while watching TV and fell off of the folding chair! We bought her this chair, which wrapped around her body far enough that even if she feel asleep she couldn't fall off. She loved it--it was comfy and had a high enough back that she could rest her head and still see the TV. It was also attractive and was a nice addition to her living room. It turned out to fit the need perfectly.
The look and feel of this chair is top-of-the-line!! The weight however is where the 'discount' comes in. Fortunately my placement is on a carpeted floor in an office corner so there is no movement. If placed on a non-resistant floor you would find it to move as you sit and get up.
I use 2 of these chairs as visitor chairs in my office. They look expensive, but don't feel as expensive when sitting in them. Not a bad thing, but definitely not a high end feeling piece of furniture. Does the job, looks great, get lots of compliments.
I bought this for my son who has Autism. He has a habit of wiping his hands on furniture when they're dirty. We got tired of the fabric ones. He has had this chair now for over a year and he still enjoys sitting in it, watching his movies (half the day). It is easy to keep clean and I love the shape and look.
Love these chairs but 2 of 4 arrived severely damaged and unusable so I had to locate them from another supplier to get matching chairs for my business waiting room. Refund was prompt and customer service was great but disappointed with hassle and delay. Then I had two damaged chairs to dispose of.
