this chair is perfect for what we needed. its in the garage witch is a game room(man cave) and it's mine . I'm 5'2" not good for a large man. a little plastic looking ,but easy to clean. very padded and comfortable, and no handle on the side to break ,like the last chair we purchased.
We ordered this for our 6'4" son. We measured the seat but not the height of the back or the footrest. Our mistake. When reclining his feet hung way over and his head didn't come anywhere the headrest. So....I am 5'6" and it fits me perfectly. It is now my chair and we ordered a different one for the tall person.
This chair does not seem to be a "standard" size. If you are taller than 5'5", you will feel like you are cramped. In addition, your legs will hang over the footrest when extended. First time we have ever been disappointed with an Overstock purchase.
This is a nice chair and I can't tell that it isn't real leather. So for that reason, the value and style are great but read on.... I got it for my dad. He finds it very comfortable but if I had seen him sit in it first, I wouldn't have bought it. He is 6' and when he reclines, his head doesn't hit the headrest. His head hangs over about four inches. The height of the back of the chair isn't high enough, so it is a waste of money to have it as a recliner to lay back in unless you're a short person. I think the problem is that the seat is so padded and high, that it brings him up high in the chair. I would have returned it but too much money for shipping. I've learned that even though reviews are good on things like this and mattresses, you need to test them yourself and not buy them on line.
