A bit of work putting together, much easier with two people. No tools needed, which is a plus. The fabric color is great creamy beige. The style of fabric is a non-formal, durable weave. Perfect for a family room. The back cushon is super comfortable, while the seat is firm (as it should be).
This chair is very nice once you put the ENTIRE thing together. Yes that's right, it's not just screwing the legs on as the answer to that question says, it actually has to be FULLY assembled. Putting it together is not so tough, but the instructions included were for a sofa and not a chair. When I had trouble with putting the arm on the wrong side, Overstock customer service was VERY helpful and sympathetic. The fabric is like denim, which is what I deduced by the picture of the fabric colors. The chocolate color was just as pictured. Be warned that the cushions come shrink wrapped and inflate when you open the package, so this does lead to some misshapen cushions. I didn't mind, I like the puffy look. If you want the cushions to look like the photo, forget it, it's not happening. It is, however, very firm to sit on and I'm sure it will be a great addition to my livingroom. The color and style are just what I expected so overall I can live with the small things that I didn't like.

Our kids ruined two expensive leather recliners within 8 years, so I decided to replace them with 2 cheap armchairs and an ottoman. I looked at **** and other similarly priced chairs on line but chose the Coco model because of the cording on the edges of the upholstery and the overall style - not formal, but not super contemporary either. I am a middle-aged, not very handy woman. It took me 30 minutes to assemble one of the chairs and 45 minutes to assemble the other (had trouble with one of the back bolts but eventually got it to work). It wasn't that hard, even working by myself; it took me almost as long to cut the boxes into recyclable sized pieces than it took to assemble the chairs. Yes, the instructions included in the boxes were for a couch, but if you skip the middle part and just pay attention to the directions for assembling the arms and the back, you'll be fine. The fabric is a sturdy, deep chocolate twill. The shape of both our chairs looks exactly like the picture - not lumpy at all. I love the fact that both the bottom and back cushions are loose and can be flipped over. In one corner of one chair you can see that the material isn't finished well, but that's going to be the case with any inexpensive, assemble yourself chair. If it still bothers me in a month, I'll sew it. The best part, though, is that the chairs are so comfortable. My husband and the kids think so too. They are firm enough to provide good support but are padded enough to sit and read in for hours. The one negative thing is that they do have a somewhat unpleasant smell, although this is dissipating now that they have been assembled for almost a week. I'm hoping it goes away entirely eventually. We'll have to see how they hold up in our household, but even if they only last 5 years I'll consider them worth it. I'm now seriously considering getting a Sofab chaise sectional.
I never write reviews - EVER. I feel compelled to warn anyone out there if you are not EXTREMELY handy, and love a challenge,or assemble furniture for a living, do not buy this chair. Some assembly required doesn't begin to cover it. To complicate an already complicated matter, the chair came with sofa instructions. The chair after assembled is cute, and comfortable, but you've been warned.
