I purchased two of these chairs last year. They are very light and feel cheap to me. They are also not all that comfortable and are more of a decoration that useful seats for a living room. My main disappointment was that the threading in the quilted part picked almost immediately, so I added some pillows to hide this. That said, everyone who comes to my house comments on how much they love the chairs and many think they are original mid-century. So maybe it's just more stuff that I notice.
First off, if you're looking for a "mustard" color chair, you'll likely be disappointed with this one, as the color is more butter yellow. That said, I like the color even more than the online photo. The piece is a showstopper. Friends come over and immediately coo over this "delicious" chair. The velvety upholstery* and warm color are immediately inviting, but the comfort doesn't line up with expectations. It almost feels like a stage prop, that's just made to look good. It's extremely light. So much so that my toddler has pulled it down on himself just by stretching his arms up onto the backrest from behind. Would I buy it again? No. But will I enjoy it while it lasts? Absolutely. And the price is such that I won't cry over it when it's no longer pretty. *The fabric on the back of mine was a little bit shredded in one spot. Not worth returning, but something to keep an eye out for.
Like others who have reviewed this chair, I was not expecting too much from this chair as it's clearly about a great look for the price. However, I am pleasantly surprised that it is firm, comfortable and sturdier than I expected it to be. Still one leg was rather difficult to align, but I did eventually manage it. It's important to note that the fabric covering the seat is intentionally less taut than the back rest, etc., allowing some give when sitting and placing less stress on the stitching and fabric overall. For a clean, neat look, the seat does need to be smoothed out after a lengthy period of sitting, but in the end, I paired this chair with a golden amber faux fur throw that adds texture and alleviates stress to the seat's fabric.
You're not paying for a sturdy chair that you'll sit in every day. This is unquestionably an accent chair that is used only company comes over. Lightweight, which is good since I need to move it around often because it sits in front of a closet door. Color is vibrant, the fabric is soft, seat firm but not cement-like. Nice living-room eye candy.
I've had this chair less than a month and I can tell it will not last very long. The seat is already feeling like it is caving in. I refuse to let any guest sit in it, so I took it out of my living room and let my 8 year use it as him gaining chair.
These chairs look great, the color is a nice mustard, the quilted material looks great, and it was really easy to assemble. However, I'm pretty small (100lbs) and upon sitting on the chair for the first time I could tell the chair wasn't going to last. Also, you can see the fabric underneath from the side views so up close it looks a little cheap. I purchased these for our living room and after a couple weeks, I have decided to gift these to my husband's office and purchase better quality chairs for our home.
Attractive chair that is basically suits my need for a place to sit and put on my shoes in my bedroom. Sturdy construction, but it is definitely not for heavy use since the cushion is a bit skimpy and might doesn't seem to have the support for extended daily use. But as an accent chair, more than suits my needs.
