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!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? great! good value.
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
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'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.
The rocking chair was just what I was searching for. It has a small footprint, it is easy to move around, sturdy enough that my grandchildren cannot tip it over and it fits everyone. It is a great chair
Bought for a baby nursery. A large, cushy recliner would definitely be more comfortable, but we don't have the space for something that big, plus I like the look and style of this better. It's actually pretty comfortable for me while nursing (more so than any of our other chairs, or our couch even); my only complaint is that it would be nice if I could lean my head back against something, but obviously this chair isn't designed for that. My husband is super uncomfortable in it, but it's not for him, so...
I ordered two for my den and I'm quite happy with them.
They look just as they are pictured. You can tell that a few corners have been cut from the original design, but nothing I can't get over, given that I saved hundreds of dollars over the originals. They are firm since they're plastic, but I think they're quite comfortable as well.
If you want these chairs, I would seriously consider one of the colored options. I like the look of white, but I know they will end up with scuffs and stains eventually. The texture of the plastic is not smooth, so I don't think dirt will come off easily.
I also have the same chairs, but with the fixed wooden legs, also from overstock. The chairs with the fixed legs are about 4 inches taller when set up. This doesn't bother me, but if you're also ordering both, you might want to consider that.

Just look at the picture on the box or online and attach the legs so they will match the angle shown in the picture.foote7 on Mar 26, 2013
We just looked at the pictures, too. The shorter side of the rocker is on the front. Assembly only took a few minutes. First put the screw in one side and then the diagonal side, then all others, before tightening the screws.amydecor8 on Apr 5, 2013
Rocker only fits on the chair one way -- if you try to put it on upside down, the screw holes don't line up. No idea which washers are meant to go where, though!bookgeekgirl on Jul 24, 2013

Hello, I have contacted the customer service deportment and asked that they contact you regarding the instructions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 28, 2013
I did have to ask my husband about the correct order of all the hardware. It goes legs, flat circle, tiny circle, screw; the legs of the chair only fit one way into the chair base.nicolahill on Mar 14, 2013
I'm 220ish and it works fine for me. I think the weight isn't the issue. It's that I'm somewhat tall and this is really scaled for someone say... 5'7" or less.wgboyd on Mar 14, 2013
Is this chair too low to use with my desk? I just want a chair to go with my laptop desk in the living room corner.
The height of the desk is a standard 30" off the floor. on Apr 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The chair measures 24 inches wide by 23 inches deep by 27 inches high. Please compare those dimensions to the height of your desk.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 17, 2012
It's a little low, I'm 5'6" and I wouldn't use it...lagos42 on May 24, 2012
