This recliner arrived in about two days and was well packaged. Setup was a breeze--about 15 minutes with most of that time taking it out of the box and unwrapping it. (Read the one page instruction sheet--there is a strap preventing the chair from reclining during shipping that needs to be removed for normal use) I would describe the color as tan. The material is soft and feels good against the skin. The arms are dark brown, almost black.
This chair is super comfortable. I'm about 5'6", average build and the proportions are just right. The leg rests stop at the ankles, my head rests on the back cushion, and there is adequate lumbar support. Taller people may not be quite as comfortable. The seat part is firmer than the back so I expect the chair to hold up well to use.
What I really like is the smooth reclining motion. There are no latches or levers, just push back on the seat back and slide forward with your butt (you will have to push on the armrests to get leverage). There are two "locked" positions--closed mode like a normal chair and reclined mode with leg rests out 180degrees and seat back about 30degrees from vertical. I find the reclined position ideal for watching TV, reading, or napping.
There is an "extra reclined mode" that puts you almost completely flat (think business class on a plane). However, you have to use your weight to keep it in this position. I find that I just need to sit a little higher in the chair to achieve this. It's a very small annoyance but i don't see myself needing to lie flat too often.
Another thing I like is that when closing the chair from the reclined position, the motion is smooth, quiet and takes little effort. Other recliners I've used require an extra kick at the end to lock it in place--this chair will snap back in place. The design is well done.
Overall, I really like this chair. The style and color match the clean, modern look I have in the rest of the living room. The mechanics of the chair is superb and the seating is very comfortable.
These came within a week of ordering. No damage - super easy to put together.
I LOVE these chairs. They are very comfortable. Fabric is nice and they look great in my family room.
My mo is short and they fit her perfectly. My husband is ^foot and he likes them too. I wouldn't get them if you were over 6"3 though as your head will not rest on the back of the chair.
Great purchase! Thanks Overstock.
A front leg of the chair was cracked due to their incorrect nailing in of the peg. There was a black mark on the footrest and appeared to be some water stains on the seat. Either there is no quality control prior to packaging their items or they sent out a item that had been already returned, I liked the style of the chair for a smaller person but I didn't pay for a messed up chair. By the time you have take the chair out of the huge box that it is shipped in, undo all the packaging you will then find the problems. I had to take the chair out of the box on the porch since it would not even fit through a standard front doorway. So, with this company, I guess you have a XX% chance of receiving an unbroken, clean chair. Beware.
Looked at this recliner in 3 different furniture stores, best buy with Overstock. Comfy, nice fabric, wears well, looks great. Love quality of Overstock items. Fast delivery. Packed well. Ty. for this great recliner. ****.
I LOVE this chair. The color is a little darker than it looks online. but, it is really comfortable. It has lumbar support and it feels theraputic. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is that it is much bigger than it looks online (i guess this is my fault). It worked out, but not the way i expected. also, the packaging was terrible. the box was falling apart when delivered. you only need to slide the back into the grooves of the seat, but not as easy as you might thing. however, i would have to say assembly was easy. overall, i love it. i would definitely recommend this chair if you have room for it.
I ordered two of these chairs early as a Christmas present for my husband, who has been begging me for a recliner for a few years now. I was REALLY happy with how nice it was. The fabric is soft, and the chair itself is VERY comfortable. I'm really happy with them. They don't look like your "typical" recliner, and they are beautiful. They are a *little* bigger than I expected, but that's fine - that's probably why they are so comfortable.
Because other people were describing heights and how the recliner fit them, I will do the same. My husband is 5'8" and about 150, and he says it hits him in "all the right places". He doesn't see himself pushing it all the way back that often, as you do lay almost flat, but he seemed to like having the option. My oldest daughter is 5'11" tall, and weighs about 190, and she pretty much said the same thing as my husband. As for me, I'm 5''4" tall, and my weight will remain a secret between me and my doctor ;) I found it to be wonderfully comfortable. The cushions are that perfect in-between of not-too-hard and not-too-soft.
It *does not* slide down the wall, so you need to have ample room for the chair, and have it set far enough away from the wall so you don't hit it when pushing back. A couple of people have mentioned that the chair legs seems a bit wobbly, and I can attest to that. It DOES wiggle a bit, but nothing alarming. I figure some screw-tightening will be in order.
Now, the downside: one of the chairs came with the legs unattached, and pretty damaged. It appears (if I were to guess) that someone put it together too quickly, and didn't notice that when they put the screws in to attach the leg to the body of the chair, it wasn't biting into the wood of the leg itself. The screws are firmly in place from the back side of the body, but the back of the leg was just resting against the screw tips, and they are eaten up pretty badly from the movement and rubbing against the screws in shipping.
I don't know if I will be able to obtain a replacement. (I do hope so - I know it's past the 30 days, but when I got them, I opened one box to check and the chair was fine, so I stupidly assumed the other wine was fine, too. So I put them aside for safekeeping until today.) I gave the chair 3 stars because the one chair did come to me pretty mangled. The chair *itself* is better than I expected (the one that's not damaged) and I'm really happy with it. I'd just be a lot happier with BOTH of the chairs I purchased. So if my review numbers are weird, it's because the chair is terrific - the condition the one was in when it got to me was not. I've never had to use overstock's return system before, so we'll see how well it works for me. (I'll be reporting back on how well it goes. Keeping my fingers crossed!)
Can you tell me the exact weight for shipping and the dimensions of the shipping box it is packaged in.skippmom on Dec 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello skippmom, the box dimensions: Height: 31 Width: 30 Length: 33 with shipping weight of approx 81 pounds on the Riverside Sand Recliner. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 18, 2013
A lot! But, it arrives in 2 pieces. I strongly recommend opening box to move it any distance within your home. I just moved again and could not easily figure how to take apart so just get someone very strong!pandoralee176 on Jul 14, 2013

Can you confirm the color of the arms? Are they a dark espresso brown color or are they black? They look like a dark brown/espresso color in the picture but in the video, they appear black.meg7485 on Sep 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I also need to know how to disassemble the chair, to move it out of the room. Looking at the back of it where the back fits into the base, there does not appear to be any releases or catches in the channels where the back fits into the base. Simply trying to pull the back off gets me nowhere, as the back is firmly locked into the channels. I can't believe the chair would be built in such a way that you cannot disassemble it. Please advise ASAP as I must move this chair.hypnoshop on Apr 23, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I purchased this chair for my son's room which we have been remodeling. Since the chair was delivered in Dec., it has been set up in our family room. Now I need to dissamble it so it can be moved through the door to my son's room. My question -- how do I get the back to release so I can pull it back out? I need help with this right away! on Feb 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Weâve not had anyone ask about disassembly before, so the best we can advise would be to reverse the process you had initially gone through for assembly set up. You would not be able to âdisassembleâ into smaller components beyond the pieces at original receipt without damaging the chair.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 1, 2012
