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.

Was redoing my guest bedroom and changing the style to an mix of modern and transitional. Needed a cool chair and had seen this before but didn't have a spot in my house to put it until I did the bedroom. Can't beat the price point, it's an imitation of a much more expensive chair and it's great! Very happy with my purchase....fits the space perfectly, I didn't want anything too large but wanted something to make a statement. The scale of the chair is the same as the very expensive version. I am 6' tall female and it's a comfortable chair for me to sit in.......great buy!!!!

Great Rocking chair. The small size of this rocker works perfectly in my teen's bedroom measuring 6 x 11'. There is enough clearance for a twin bed & the rocker off to the side. The rocker is good quality & comfortable. It is not padded but the plastic seat is well shaped.

This chair was way smaller than I was expecting. It is more a child's size. It was dwarfed by the size of my sofa so it didn't look right at all. Also, it came with a stain on the seat, so I returned it. Quality was fine otherwise, just really small.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine

We really love this chair, very modern. We use in baby room and it's perfect size for us to sit in and our toddler can climb in alone. Looks great and good quality. I didn't give 5 stars because the seat is very matte finish and I think that if it gets anything (like crayon /marker etc) on it, it would be difficult to clean. But that hasn't happened yet, so not sure.

This is a high-quality piece of stylish furniture. The main question the reviews here try to address: Is this seat too small for an adult? The answer:Yes and no.
This is not a question of corn-fed Americans being too husky for slick euro-design. The seat itself is wide and deep and accommodating enough for most adult rear ends. It's molded perfectly and is very comfortable to sit in. The back isn't very high, but other than that, it's a perfect seat.
The problem is how short the rocking legs are. Your rear sits about 13-14 inches off the ground. Measure a typical chair in your home and you'll see that this is a very low-to-the-ground chair. Normal adult legs are too long for the chair. When rocking, you will either have your knees bent so the bottom half of your legs are underneath the chair, or extended far out. Unless you're pretty darn short (I'm 5'7), your legs will not bend at a 90 degree angle. This isn't exactly uncomfortable, but it isn't optimal either.
We bought it for our nursery, as many others have. It will be a great chair for our daughter's room as she grows up. It looks great, so I have no regrets buying it, but it would look silly in a room of 'adult' furniture due to its height.
In sum, the chair is best for children or the very short (5' tall), but will be fine in a pinch for those taller than us.

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

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
