This is a nice chair and ottoman set for the cost when one factors in usual shipping charges, which at other companies can be upwards of a third of the set's price. I can't say that I would have purchased this set had I seen it first in a store, but I'm not unhappy with it. The cushion is quite hard on both the chair and ottoman, but this may relax over time, the stiffness leading to a less saggy cushion in the long term. More problematic are the arms of the chair, which are not well constructed in that one can feel the edges of the metal/plastic/wood under the very spare padding when one rests an arm there. The button-back on the chair adds detail, though the buttons are somewhat ill defined (and certainly not as defined as the photo shows). The chair is large, more the width of a recliner (a bit too big for a small home office or bedroom), and the ottoman is sized well in relation to the chair. The fabric, a linen-blend, is clean and comfortable for the moment, but I can see that without a blanket over the chair during use, the material will wear quickly and make the set appear cheaper than it is. The set came packaged well and included cotton covers on both pieces to protect the material during shipping and assembly. I'm grateful for those covers as getting the chair out of the packing was impossible without dumping the box over to pull it out. In all, a nice chair and ottoman set for the price, but don't expect anything spectacular.

The chair and ottoman are lovely both to look at and to sit in but the chair is actually a lot smaller than the photo indicates. For the 6 foot+ men in our house, this chair is way too small. The proportions are off - it is really a small version of a wing chair. I've decided to keep it (too much trouble to return!) but its more decorative than functional.

I was so disappointed when I received this chair due to the fact that it is terribly uncomfortable. It looks GREAT, but it is rock hard. Being such an affordable chair, it might be a good choice for someone who just needs a space filler. As a piece that someone would sit on regularly, it is just not comfortable enough.

The Chair & Ottoman piece is perfect! I needed a side chair in my living room. My color scheme has grays and blues so I was nervous this would clash, being that it looked a bit beige. However, this chair has such a neutral tone that it can really fit in most color schemes. The chair is comfy, but strudy and has a definite modern, clean cut element about it. REMEMBER THAT THE LEGS ARE INSIDE THE OTTOMAN and need to be screwed on. We spent an hour thinking how strange the chair looked when we realized we were missing the legs:) All in all, a great chair for a very reasonable price.

I was worried because of the reviews I read that this would be a bust for me as I do not like firm seating. Yes, it is firm, but it is not that bad at all The seat has plenty of give, the ottoman is plenty cushy for feet. The issue is the angle and that the arm rests are very low. You have to sit at and odd angle. Although that is ok for a short period, if you want to curl up, and read, this is not the chair for you. Reading is what I bought this for so I was worried. The quality is great. The color is dead on. It is beautiful and the fabric is a bit scratchy but good quality. It was packaged with care...very well. It was very easy to screw in the feet. The firmness will go away with time and a couple of accent pillows will fix the reading problem. If you are a large and/or overweight person...this is not the chair for you. I am overweight, but short so it is not so bad for me.
I bought this set because it is aesthetically beautiful and fit my decor perfectly. I was also on a strict budget for re-doing a master bedroom and needed affordable furniture. When I first sat in this chair, I was shocked at how accurate the reviews were-hard chair, not comfortable, ect. But for the price, I had to make it work. I decided to buy three or four pillows for the chair. My plan was to find a good combination that made me relax while seated. Because I love to read for hours at a time, comfort was a priority or this chair would be going back. I also love pillows, so this wasn't a challenging plan to implement. After trying different combinations, I found the perfect match. I wish I could post a pic to show other owners struggling with the stiffness of the chair. Now, I can comfortably read for hours on end without regret of a bad decision. I may upgrade to a more comfortable, more expensive chair in a year or two. But for now, it works fantastic!
This chair arrived promptly and in good condition. It is perfect for the nursery of our little girl. My husband attached a glider mechanism to the underside, which is not visible. It is slightly stiff, but generally comfortable enough, especially considering such a reasonable price point. Recommended!

I consider myself a Pottery Barn kind of girl. Their furniture is quality to me. I ordered this chair for my crafting room. The style of it is timeless....its a wonderful light tweed beige color. The fabric feels nice and it is made very well. The chair has great weight to it. If I'm to find something negative about this chair, the seat is rather firm. It does not have much give to it when you sit down. But other than that, I love it. I'm happy I ordered it.

This chair is beautiful just as pictured and is an incredible value. It is very firm as previously posted but should become less firm when used for awhile. We will be using it in a room that doesn't get a lot of use so we may just have a very firm chair! It arrived in four days!! Would highly recommend this set. Overstock is awesome!
This chair would have been nice if the dimensions were bigger. I measured out the size before ordering them and thought it would work but upon arrival, because the arms are really thin, because it sits low to the ground, and is a narrow chair, it just looks silly in a living room next to a normal couch. The arms are not padded at all so heaven forbid you have an overweight guest. The seat was was firm, really firm which I like because it doesn't look like itll sag. Or you'll have the frumpy couch cushion line issue. BUT because these chairs don't size up even though they said 34" height, they look tiny. Maybe they'd be nice for a room chair. Anyway, I returned them and it cost me 70 bucks plus another 16 to have fed ex pick them up because I couldn't lift them. A waste of my limited furniture budget. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs so this review isn't from a giant calling a chair tiny. But, it was pretty, I'll give it that.
The chair and ottoman arrived as scheduled. Assembly was very simple and consisted of simply screwing the legs on to the chair and ottoman. They are attractive additions to our living room. WARNING!!! Do not expect comfort when you sit in it. We have never sat in a chair of this nature that is so hard. One might as well be sitting on a stone park bench.
I have been looking for a comfortable chair to match with my living room decor, I purchased this chair specifically because it was the style I wanted and because it is a perfect compliment to the ***** Storage Chaise I purchased a few months ago. The pair look amazing in the room. As with the chaise, I scotch-guarded the chair and ottoman to give me a little piece of mind. It was a great purchase and a good value.
