We purchased three of these after our office was remodeled. These were very easy to set up and are surprisingly very sturdy! We've had a few clients come in and sit in them while waiting and we've received nothing but compliments. They were definitely a great purchase for their price bracket, I'd highly recommend these to someone on a budget looking for quality.
I recently purchased 6 of these chairs for my office. They're beautiful, comfortable chairs, and very sturdy. However, the assembly was a bit of a challenge. I found that some of the brackets were pre-assembled backwards or sideways, and it took some time to figure out the correct way they should face. It took 2-3 people to put attach the backs, also, just to hold the chair together while the bolts were lined up correctly and properly secured. But overall, I'm very happy with the purchase, and the chairs look great!
I would have a hard time justifying paying the difference between the price of a real leather chair that is comparable to this one. I bought two and use them in as guest chairs in my law office, where they work great. The fabric is about as close to the leather "experience" as I can imagine for a synthetic both in appearance and touch. I don't know how they would, over a number of years, weather a high-traffic environment such as a reception area, but they fit the bill for me.
My husband is a doctor and needed to replace his waiting room chairs. We were a little concerned about how these chairs would hold up. We have been so pleased with the quality and so many of his patients have told him how much they like the new seating in his office. They have been used now for 3 years and are still in great shape. They were such a good value, and we wouldn't hesitate to purchase these again.
