We got this for my newborn son's nursery. It's so much more cool looking than a clunky grandma-style glider. I wanted a piece of furniture that I would love to have around after our need to rock is finished -- this chair is perfect! We've rocked our way through his first six months -- the rocker rails give a very nice rock and it's even comfortable for my 6 foot 2" husband who weighs, er, over 250... In fact, it's my husband's favorite place to soothe baby. Diminsions are small on this chair -- but that is due to the Eames original design (you can find a certified replica on Design within Reach for over $400 and it's the same specs.) The seat itself is average sized -- the small part is the height of the chair. As long as you know it's not going to be a tall seat, you should be fine. Gorgeous white design -- we get lots of compliments; plus the small size doesn't take up too much room in the nursery, and is even easy to move to other rooms if we occasionally need to. I've even nursed in this chair comfortably!

I don't understand all the reviews of people stating the chair is small. If you're looking for a knock off of the Herman Miller Eames chair, this is EXACTLY it. So, if that's what you're looking for it's not small. I loved the Eames chair so I think it's perfect.
I love this chair-we have a mid-century house but short on cash to decorate it. The chair is very cool and only took like 10 minutes-if- to put it together. We put it in our living room and everyone comments on how cool it is. I would highlly recommend this product to anyone else-if your house or condo is modern and you are into classic modern statement pieces but short on cash-which everyone is these days- go for this chair.
I used to sell the real, designer-made version of this at a furniture store in California. So many people came in and said it was too expensive for them to spend on children's furniture but the thing is this is not child-sized! It's not sized for large adults, but average to small adults (remember the real thing was made in the mid-1900s when there weren't a lot of overweight and obese individuals!). That being said, I've always wanted one but didn't have the budget so I scooped this up in a flash. It's strikingly similar to the one I sold years ago.
This is a lovely reproduction of the classic Eames rocker - white plastic as per the chairs for years now. Nice wood rocker base, and great seat. It is a small chair, as others observed, BUT it is the right size - the original size. If you want a bigger chair, one higher off the ground, or that supports your back, get one of those. This is a design classic, 1:1 scale with the original. very good price, nice finish quality. one of the four screw holes on the chair was out of line to connect with the base, but worked sufficiently for me. We will use ours as a nursing chair, but we are not very tall people. we love it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the matt white is matt white. small mark transfered from card board packing, and was removable with an erazor
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the seat is plastic, with correct thickness. One of the 4 screw holes was slightly off, but worked fine.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? spot on
I have the "real deal" Eames chairs as my kitchen dining charis and I felt the quality matched these! The molded plastic is the new soft and slightly textured plastic -- not the original fiberglass. I did, however, buy this chair to use in our nursery as we are expecting a new baby. I LOVE the look. Now that I have the chair I'm not sure it was the best choice for this end use. I know we will be up in the middle of the night for feeding and rocking and this chair, while comfortable in the middle of the day, does not allow any place to rest your head or really relax into it. But, I do feel like it's EXCELLENT for the price offered here on Overstock and if you feel the chair is right for you, BUT IT!

I was saving up to by the original, but when I saw this chair I decided to buy it on a whim. The chair came quickly and was very easy to assemble (only 4 screws). The chair does sit lower to the ground that what I expected and my first thought was "kiddie furniture" and I immediately decided to return it. However, when I sat in the chair it was very comfortable and it does fit perfectly in my modern/mid-century decor -- so I decided to keep it for a few days before returning it. Lo and behold, the chair has grown on me and I
I've been wanting this style chair and I was delighted when it was on sale and combined with a great coupon for a great deal, but my excitement was cut short when I realized (after ordering) that it is a child's size chair. Totally my fault for not reading the details more carefully. I was just afraid it would sell out so I hurried through my purchase. I'm sure this is a great item if you are looking to buy it for a child. Big Oops! But thankfully Overstock accepted my return.
Great little rocker. It's a little lower than we expected, but otherwise it's great! Wifey loves it!

It might be quite strange that a father buys a cradle chair but my wife was so busy with the baby and her bad night sleep that I needed to find something that would solve our problem. My friend advised me to buy this great cradle chair as this was the only way their baby could fall asleep within minutes. It worked. The chair is so comfortable and so helpful that we do not have problems in the evening. Thank you.
This is definitely the best cradle chair we had. We tried out numerous different ones, leather and wood, but this was the winning one after all. It is really comfortable and lightweight, has a stable construction and great quality. The price is also way below all others.
This is really the best cradle chair you can get. It is so comfortable for the back and the whole upper body and my baby sleeps like an angel every evening after a few minutes in this chair. It is solid and sturdy and I hope it will last for the second child as I cannot do without it. Thank you.
My wife and I recently had a baby. She wanted a cradle chair but all I could find was old or the style of the chair was from the 80`s. She didnt want those chairs so I was looking for something out of the ordinary. A friend recommended overstock because he bought some furniture from this site and he was satisfied. This is how I found this cradle chair, and made the purchase.
In lieu of spending the money for an ugly nursery glider, I decided to purchase this cute and modern looking chair for our toddler's room. Contrary to a few other reviews, I did not find this chair to be too small for me (I'm 5'3"). However, there isn't too much back support so if you plan on using this for pure relaxation purposes, this is not the chair for that purpose. In addition, the rocking motion is vastly inadequate when compared to a traditional rocking chair or glider. The motions are more of a tilt forward, tilt backward. So if you are using this to rock your baby to sleep and would like a full motion of rocking, this may not be the best option. This chair, however, is very cute and is versatile enough to be in a child's room or just as easily in a main living room.

I was skeptical but the chair was delivered quickly, the box a bit damaged but the chair was perfectly intact inside. Very easy to assemble and it looks fantastic! It sits very low to the floor, so unless you have low-slung, contemporary furniture, it will look out of place with larger, taller, bulkier pieces. Very satisfied!
The chair came quickly. It was very easy to put together. It should have been packaged better. There was some rubbing on the top of the chair by the box which left a mark, but overall it is in great condition. It is smaller than the original, but you will not find a better price. If you are considering getting this for your nursery, I would reconsider. You will not have enough back and neck support to be comfortable. I put the chair in my living room. It looks great with my eclectic mix of furniture. I love the fact that it will be kid and cat proof as well. I would recommend this to others.
I read other reviews stating these chairs were small - I thought they meant width wise. They are in fact very short / low to the ground. I'm 5'4 and it's a little short for me. They are strong, look very nice and only other downside is they get dirty pretty easily.
