While the recliner is fine. It takes a bit getting use to setting the resistance.
The idea of the table is great, but it is not stable. When you get up it moves. Needs to have a set screw so that once set at the desired position it will remain there. Ottoman needs to be a little lower. Its present hight makes it uncomfortable after a while.
These are all minor problems... On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this a 9. For the price I give it a 10

Fine print says this is "bonded leather." I guess that's the new name for naugahyde. We should have read the reviews before buying, though some buyers were very happy with the chair, others complained about the fake leather. We complained to Overstock and they replied "sorry for the confusion." Makes me wonder if Overstock has changed suppliers of this chair.

I really wanted to like this chair, especially since it cost so much, but it fails to satisfy in almost every way.
I will state up front that build quality of this chair is top notch. The hardware is very well done and everything assembled cleanly. The upholstery is put together very well with clean stitching and strong zippers (nice touch). It was an absolute pain to unpack this product, but I would rather have have too much packing than not enough. There were a lot of parts, but assembly was pretty straightforward and did not require additional tools or assistance. Assembly time took about 45 mins. When assembled, it looks just like the picture except for darker wood and it is visually attractive.
But, that is the extent of the pros. This is my first experience with bonded leather and it will be my last. I should have researched this upfront. Bonded leather only has leather fibers in the backing, the entire surface is man-made. I assumed it was the other way around like gold plated jewelry. This borders on absolute fraud in my opinion. As a result, the upholstery is stiff, cheap and smells slightly of plastic and I think formaldehyde. Big minus in my opinion and not something I would expect on a ****+ chair.
Next, the arms are simply too low. You don't notice until you sit down in the chair, but the arms need to be a couple inches higher to be truly comfortable. I find myself feeling like I am going to fall out of the chair and I am not that big. I can't imagine how someone 6ft or taller would feel.
The reclining mechanism is just a hinge between seat and back with a fixed pivot and that means your back moves away from the seat back as it reclines requiring you to readjust, which can be tricky because the seat is free moving rather than tensioned and using the friction knob is a hit or miss situation.
The side table, like the chair, is nice executed and poorly designed. It is free moving, which is nice from an adjustablility aspect, but it makes it completely unusable unless you are sitting completely still...in a reclining, swivel chair.
All of this combines to make this fairly uncomfortable chair and I cannot recommend it to anyone, especially at the price point.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Wood is darker than picture indicates.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Extremely well manufactured
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Completely accurate, though the use of the term bonded leather should be replaced with Vinyl with leather fibers in backing.
We picked this chair because the description and reviews said it was made of durable leather. We looked at similar chairs at department stores and were delighted to find a leather chair at a good price BUT the chair is not leather! The tags say polyester and it is obviously not leather. It was easy to put together for experienced do-it-yourselfers but it isn't very sturdy and the table is useless as is the adjuster knob. Both are purely cosmetic. If we had known this wasn't real leather we would have bought a different chair. This is our first real disappointment with Overstock products.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fair
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate at all.
I ordered a pair of these and am happy so far with the purchase...I did not know they have a little side table that can be attached to the chair. This was a surprise when I opened the box to assemble...This is a nice touch and handy too!
I have looked for a chair like this for a very long time and when I saw it and read the reviews I purchased it. My husband loves it and always falls asleep on it. The few times I have had the chance to sit on it ,it was great. I chatted with customer service before my purchase and they were very helpful.
I ordered thsi chair to replace a similar one that I had already re-leathered. What did I have to lose- it was so reasonable? It is terrific and looks as great as the original one that cost hundreds of dollars. We liked it so much that we ordered two for our medical office.

Thank you for contacting us ziggygun. Bonded leather or reconstituted leather is a term used for partially synthetic leather. It is a synthetic material made of varying types of plastic (generally polyurethane or vinyl) that may be spread over ground-up leather and other substances, mechanically processed to give the appearance of leather, but at reduced cost and with less wastage compared to natural leather.Bonded leather can be found in furniture, bookbinding, and various fashion accessories. Examples of products that are most commonly constructed with different varieties of "bonded leather" are: books, diaries, art books, desk accessories, bags, belts, chairs, and sofas.

Hi garysloan, the 39.4 height is from the ground to the top of the chair. Although this is not what we consider a low back chair considering the extra 20 inches from the seat to the top of the chair. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 21, 2013
