The chair was lighter in the frame and the structure than the original and if put side by side this would be apparent. It is proportional, however, and comfortable for conversation (not to curl up with a book). For a "knock off" a terrific price and the color, more a light tan, works well in our room.
I recently purchased two of these chairs in tan after doing a lot of research and reading reviews. This is a well done reproduction of a classic Wassily chair. The chairs are handsome and made well, a great bargain. The color online is true to what I received. Everyone who has seen these chairs comments on how nice they look. For a bonded leather, it looks and feels real. The strapping on the chairs is taut, allowing them to give a little over time. But it's not uncomfortable. If you require more lower back support, you can always use a decorative lumbar pillow. And no assembly is required - a big plus. If you are seeking a classic mid-century modern look at a fraction of the price of the originals, I highly recommend these chairs.
For years I have wanted a Wassily chair but could not justify paying *** for one. This chair looks like like the real deal. The leather feels like the Wassily but the leather doesn't "give" like expensive leather. It is still a very good chair for the money. Two side by side will look very impressive. I am happy with my purchase. I had to buy a large pillow to sit at the back because the leather, as I said, is a bit stiff. You will enjoy.The tan is a better choice than the black unless you have super modern interior!
I love, love, LOVE the Wassily chair. The moment I saw it in my decorative arts class in college, I was obsessed. However, with my "young, urban professional" income, spending over two thousand bucks on the licensed Knoll version just isn't justifiable. "Design Within Reach?" Not my reach. Public domain to the rescue. The design fell out of licensing and the reproductions began popping up. This one is a pretty good example from the reproduction bunch. Okay, so the leather is super firm and I saw one stitch that was off, but I can forgive the minor imperfections for such a huge slash in price. I was originally set on purchasing the traditional black version, but saw it was sold out at the time. I'm glad I purchased the tan. It maintains the industrial lines without being so hard edged. The tan, which appears yellow in the photograph, is actually more neutral toned in person. It'll be interesting seeing how this chair ages, but considering I can buy more than 5 "Jerichos" for the price of one Knoll Wassily, I'm not worried.
The chair is an incredible bargain compared to the Knoll registered versions. My only issue with the chair is that they used a latex based product to seal the edges of the straps and it is not as designed by Marcel Breuer and is a way to use inexpensive leather straps on the chair. The chair was Federal Expressed to me in perfect condition and I love it.
I have a budget to design a classic retro beach house rental. The Jericho chair, a knock-off style of the classic Wassily chair for thousands of dollars fit not only the budget, but has the classic style and lines. I bought a pair for a master bedroom sitting area. I'm very impressed with the quality. The tan leather is a little more on the tan-gold color, but very nice. The owner of the home thought I blew the budget on these chairs alone and was very impressed when I told her the price!
We ordered this chair, love the style, looks great, but the leather is splitting where it wraps around the chrome. Had another one sent, same problem, and the width of the base of the second chair is about an inch shorter than the first!! Debating whether to try one more time. Overstock has been great about this, but I am not optimistic that another chair will be any better.
Great looking. I wish it was not so stiff to sit in. The leather is real hard.
