First off, the color of the recliner is not even close to the picture. The color in the advertised photo is much, much lighter then the actual color. The only way I can describe the real color is of a coffee with just a bit of cream or if you can see the online photo with the horse in the right lower corner, that brown is close to the real color. I'm sad that the color isn't more true to what I saw when I ordered. The chair is also very firm, but I'm sure it will become more comfortable with use. Love the style of the chair, just the color is not all that great.
I needed a comfy chair to sit in and read in the sunlight or watch TV. This is perfect. It's nothing fancy. Color is plain and blah. But it's comfortable and easily gussied up with a pillow or throw. I like it a lot. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and this is just right. I would recommend it as a useful little chair. Plan to need a nice pillow behind your back. And it's not high. My head is higher than the back of the chair. I couldn't sleep in it.
I have bought a lot of the Christopher Knight furniture and really have been satisfied. This recliner was bought for my bedroom. It is small and so very comfortable to sit back and read or take a short nap. Not sure it would hold up under everyday prolonged use or children, but it suits my needs perfectly.
Purchased this for my mother who was wanting a small recliner for watching television. She really has enjoyed it and says it just perfect for her. She is 5'.5" so this is made for a smaller person. Directions are simple and easy for assembly. A very nice chair for the money!
