This review is for the Cole SLIPPER CHAIR in EGGPLANT(purple). I wanted to replace a large mission armchair in my bedroom since it was too large for the space and I kept banging my knee on it. I settled on this slipper chair because it is substantial, lower to the ground(great for putting on shoes), comfortable enough to read in, and a handsome muted purple. Now that I have had it for 2 weeks, I like how it fits in the space(no arms)and appreciate the ability to move around it with ease. I am pleased with my purchase and the price was right. Now for the 2 negatives: 1) The last bolt would not fit, so like other reviewers we did not use it.This is very common to Overstock furniture. 2)Underneath the cushion there is no support, so a potential buyer of this chair piece might want to consider the frequency & type of use. I don't know how common this is for slipper chairs to not have support but I was surprised.
I love my 2 new eggplant chairs! The color is beautiful, and they weren't hard to assemble. As far as how they "sit," they are pretty firm. If you are looking for something you will melt /curl up into like a soft recliner, these aren't your chairs. Also, looks-wise, they are plain and pretty straight-backed, which some many not like. But with a pillow on them...and mixed with my white leather couch in the den, they look and feel great for my purposes!
Have been looking for an oversize purple chair to put in the front room. Had not found what I have been looking for and thought I would have to settle for this chair. When I received I realized that I was not settling and that the chair would work very well in the air intended. I was very happy with the quality of the leather, the stitching of the leather and the color. The chair is sleek and modern, just what I was looking for. The price was a lot less than I was expecting to pay for the quality of the chair.

I purchased two of these for my library/office and find them striking. The color is darker and richer than depicted in the picture, which I was hoping for. They make a simple, elegant statement and gave new life to my old gray sofa. As others have stated, I would have liked the seats to have support underneath. However, since these chairs are not used on a daily basis, they serve the purpose and the price can't be beat. The quality of leather was more than I expected. This is my second purchase from overstock and I am very satisfied and pleased.
I've had this chair for over a year. It's a nice looking chair but needs to be used for the right purpose. It's not good for everyday use. My guest always avoid it because they slip right off. Since it's leather and has no arms it becomes slippery to sit on. Since no one wants to sit on it I'm now looking for something to replace it. It would be good as a second seating area that doesn't get used much but is not good for long periods such as watching tv. It would be great for home staging since it's light weight and easy to move.

I had these chairs in my shopping cart for more than a year because I couldn't decide. I was afraid that the purple would be too bright and that I'd regret the purchase. Now that I have them, I couldn't be happier. The color is beautiful. The chairs aren't the highest quality, which I didn't expect considering the price. But I have them in a side room where they are frequently seen but not the main chairs we sit in. They are perfect for that. I don't think they would hold up well over time if they were the main chairs. I have never ordered furniture over the Internet before and I was concerned about the packaging and delivery. The chairs were well packed and very easy to assemble. I don't know why I waited so long to buy these.

Love this chair, though I took off one star because I thought the eggplant color could be a little brighter - turns out it is very subdued. But otherwise it is great. Went together easily, very good quality for this price, and I am very happy with it!
I've had these chairs (2) for several years, they are in the living room & add great subtle color, without being over-powering. I love they are firm, I place a pillow on the back to add extra color & provide support (am short). I clean every other wk with Maguires leather cleaner then wipe again, they are stunning! Highly recommend. If you are concerned the reviews are "fake" THIS isn't ! I love my chairs!!
It's a very comfortable chair. It's firm enough for the bedroom. It's not a chair that gets used constantly. Only drawback is the color. It's much darker than the picture. I wish it looked more purple. Most people immediately think it's brown until you see it in broad light.
These chairs were on my wish list for some time. They went on sale and are a great value for the price. I replaced two clunky occasional chairs with these sleek, perfectly eggplant-colored leather chairs and am VERY pleased. The color is what sets this simple, but elegant contemporary chair apart. The quality is above average and the comfort is average but firm. They are low to the ground compared to typical living room furnishings - so measure carefully from floor up. Easy to assemble by ones self.
I love this chair! I purchased it as an accent chair for my living room and was very pleasantly surprised with quality and how easy it was to put together. 4 bolts. That's it. It's very sleek, very modern and the color is beautiful. It gives my neutral living room just the right splash of color. It is definitely a conversation piece!

Nice chair, very good buy for the money. Too deep to be comfortable as a full time chair but perfect as a slipper chair in the bedroom.

I was looking for a contemporary accent chair for my living room and did not want to pay $1000 for something that would be used only when we had guests. I wanted leather and I love purple, so this chair fit the bill. I didn't want a loud, bright purple color, so this muted plum color works well. The chair is NOT plushy, but for us, will only be used when we have guests - so it will be perfect. For the price, it works. It was also very easy to assemble.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was actually a bit less vibrant than in the picture - almost a brownish tone in certain light
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. For the price, the chair is great

I bought two of these chairs to take to a show for the booth, and they are now in my living room.. The color is great, they are comfortable, sturdy, and they got a lot of compliments. At the show several people asked about them, and were surprised when I told them I got the chairs at Overstock & what a great price they were - and yes, they really are leather (thanks to bringing the chairs instead of relying on what the show provided, my booth was quite the hangout, and became refered to as "The Lounge"). Even though the chairs are a little bigger than I thought they would be when I ordered them, since they don't have arms, they can fit well in smaller spaces.

This chair is outstanding and I got more than I expected for the price. I love it. It is perfect in the bedroom where I placed it. It would work very well in a den or living room as well.

This is the perfect size and color, and the quality of the leather is very good. It isn't a chair that I felt was very comfortable which is why I gave it 4 stars. However I Will use it as an accent chair and it will not get heavy use. For the money it is a great buy and if I had room I would purchase another.
