If you are using your chair on a hard surface flooring like wood, wood laminate or natural stone surface, you may want to consider optional soft wheel casters. Optional soft wheel casters reduce the chance of marring or leaving marks on your hard surface flooring. These soft casters are inserted into the base at time of assembly as opposed to the standard, or included, casters. Click here to view soft caster.
Great office chair with ample support & nice looking. No tools required to assemble this chair. When I received it, all I had to do was slip the base on. The back of the chair is folded over, you lift up the back & it pops into place. One of the most comfortable office chairs I have ever owned, needless to say the easiest I have ever assembled! I would highly recommend this chair.
This chair design is absolutely terrible and frustrating as heck to put together (if you can even get it put together!) There is a latching mechanism that locks the backrest into place to the bottom of the seat, however the latch is very poorly designed and will not lock, leaving the chair's backrest to flop over directly onto the seat bottom!
I contacted the manufacturer and they shipped me a replacement backrest to remedy the problem. Upon receiving the part (which took 2 weeks) I installed it immediately, only to discover that again the part will not latch properly like it should! This is a design flaw that needs to be changed ASAP. I'm currently trying to get a refund from the manufacturer because overstock wants to charge me fifty five dollars to return the item!
I used to work in a warehouse putting furniture together so I know what I am talking about. This is a design flaw and is very unfortunate since the quality of the leather was very good.
Bottom line, buy at your own risk. I will go elsewhere.
It is excellent in every way. Easy to assemble, nice cushiony seat, great lumbar for your back, nice arm padding with good leather, and extremely nice looking. You will not be disappointed. I cannot imagine anyone stating anything negative about this chair. Shipment was on time and packaged nicely.
I searched many chairs until I found this one, the Boss Italian Top Grain Leather Executive Chair. I didn't want to purchase another bonded/faux leather chair which would likely wear, peel, or flake off within a year. I wanted to buy genuine leather and this is it.
When you first sit in the chair, the leather is a little stiff (as it should be until it's broken in). The bottom and back cushions are adequate in that I can sit in this chair for hours at a time without feeling tired, however it doesn't have as much cushion as I'd like, as if I were sitting in a cloud. I highly recommend using leather creamer / cleaner to help wipe down your chair and to give it a good lather before you use it.
According to the instructions, the hydraulic cylinder only supports up to 250lbs, but I'm over 280 and it's still working just fine. I'm sure the cylinder will wear out faster for me vs someone who's lighter. Oh well, I can always replace the cylinder later with a heavier duty one.
Comfort: There's good lower back support by way of some lower back cushion as it bulges out more than the top head rest cushion. Great for sitting back against the chair and resting your head on the headrest without losing balance. The seat bottom has adequate cushioning and doesn't dig into my legs. When I sit in this chair, I feel that all the weight contact is on my buttocks and not my front legs, so I feel weel balanced while sitting. The chair also doesn't creek and feels pretty stable under my weight, even when I roll around.
There is a one gripe however. Like many reviewers here, I think I got a little too excited and couldn't figure out how to put this darn thing together. The bracket that sticks out from the bottom of the seat-back didn't seem to reach the locking jaw mechanism under the rear of the seat-bottom.
The trick is to get a helper: First, install the seat onto the cylinder and the wheel base. Then with the seat-back in default, folded position, pull it up until it's almost 90 degrees perpendicular with the seat bottom. Then, while still holding the seat-back, lift it up while keeping the seat-bottom and wheel base from lifting along with it. Have your helper pull the seat-bottom's tab downwards to open the locking jaw mechanism as wide as possible. Then at this point, you'll likely need to angle the seat-back a little from 90 degrees to say 110 degrees, until the bracket is angled closer towards the open locking jaw mechanism. Either lift or lower the seat-back until it goes into place and your partner can then let go of the tab so that the locking jaw mechanism closes, holding the seat-back's lower bracket in place. Easy right? I just wished the instructions were more detailed.
For under $300 I'd purchase this chair again when it comes time to replace. I'd order it again from Overstock.com as they did a great job at shipping my chair within 2 business days from my order.
Unlike those who had negative reviews on assembling this chair, I found it quite easy. Some of the detractors say they could not snap the chair back into its locking position, saying things like misaligned, bad design. Well, I found just the opposite. The one sheet pictorial instructions was quite adequate. I followed the instructions precisely. Flipping the back to locking position was easy. It clicked right in. However, it did not go all the way down to its full locking position and will easily flip back down. But, I simply sat down on the chair and then it went down to its full locking position. The whole process took less than 5 minutes. Easiest chair that I ever assembled. I am 5' 6" and 175 lbs. and it works just great for me. I am a computer programmer and I sit for many hours at a time and this chair has been wonderful.
This is a nice leather chair for the money. It snaps together without tools but it took effort. My adult son struggled with it for quite a while trying to get the chair to lock in place. Once he did, the chair was very nice.
Very comfy and the leather feels great. Has the two most common basic chair controls, a knob for seat tilt adjustment and a lever that controls both the height adjustment and locking upright vs rocking back. There's no adjusting the backrest angle, lumbar support, arm rest height or arm rest angle so it may not suit everyone but it's perfect for me. I'm 6'1" and a bit over 220lbs in case that helps anyone judge.
Also, it was fun being able to buy it with Bitcoin as my first overstock.com purchase. It arrived quickly in a very large box. There's not much protective packing foam so if the box has holes or slices in it, I'd open it before accepting it to make sure the leather isn't damaged. The packing is probably adequate for typical rough handling but doesn't give much margin for punctures. Mine arrived in perfect condition.
As a few others have mentioned, it's not entirely obvious how to get the back to latch to the seat properly and took me a few tries. What worked for me was putting the chair seat upside-down on the floor -- so it's like an A shaped tent. I aligned the latching mechanism and pushed down with my knee to force the seat and back apart and the latch together. It's probably best to do this before you put the cylinder and base on. It took a fair amount of weight and some wiggling to get it aligned and latched firmly. I'm assuming this is by design (it's supposed to be tight so the padding has to be compressed a bunch) but you'd think there'd be a better way... and some instructions. Still a much better experience than other chairs I've bought since this one comes mostly assembled with just 3 pieces (base with casters, cylinder, seat) that go together very easily.
We found delivery in 3 days (we ordered on a Saturday night, received on a Wednesday). Product as advertised, attractive leather like chair, good support. We did not have trouble with the back staying upright upon unpacking. Took my husband 10 minutes to assemble, but he was tired after long day at work, and took breaks while telling me about his day. Casters on legs, pole into leg support, chair on, unfold. Throw out the Ikea-like instructions.
What type of casters does this chair have. They appear to be the ones necessary for hard wood floors, although it says to purchase special ones for hardwood floor. They look the same in the pictureschimichanga69 on Jul 18, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
