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.
Of all the recliners I looked at on the internet this one really caught my eye. Love the height of the recliner as far as seat and armrest. I love the color, same as pictured. The armrest and cup holders look better than pictured. Armrest seem to look better as far as fullness and length. The recliner from floor to top only measured 38" for me not 41" that explains the "not enough head support" from some of the reviews. This recliner is so cute you cannot keep your eyes off of it, its a great eye catcher. I am very pleased with it as I am only 5ft 2in and my husband is 5ft 7in, so we have the full support of the head rest but, it wouldn't hurt to have had the full 41" measurement. There is no pocket for a remote so I have came up with an ideal of buying a throw pillow and making me a pocket on the backside for two remotes, hope it works. Also, there were comments about the bonded leather looking more like vinyl or plastic, its an OK material at the price, it does have a little grain color look to it and I'm sure the price would have been twice the price had it of been a better quality. The higher the price the better the material. Overall I like the recliner for its size, its unique style and comfort at a very good price. As far as price Overstock has the best price of this item on the internet. From some of the sellers price ranged from **** or more higher from Overstock.com. Like one review said if your looking at this recliner go ahead click on the button and order yourself one I don't think you will be disappointed.( Also let me say the gathers at the top of the recliner show less gathers than the footrest in the picture, they are the same.)
I bought this recliner as a game chair for my teenager and so far its holding up well. This recliner doesnt come with a lever to recline so you have to lean back then lean forward with your weight which I really didnt like at first but have gotten use to it. Also, you have to be careful cause if you lean back to far you can fall backwards in the chair which happened once to my son. The chair includes two cup holders but they are more for Sippy cups and wont fit a big cup so I just use it as a remote control holder. Overall its a nice chair.
I fell in love with this chair, unfortunately I bought it for my husband and him being a big man, thought the chair wasn't big enough for him. It was on the small side, perfect for a lady. The customer service I received was extraordinary , they went above and beyond to make it right.
