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.
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.
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.
The Fed Ex man helped me bring the box into the house and it was a cinch to put together. The wheel base and the chair just fit together and you unfold the chair and click it in. It's so soft and cushy, I may stay in the chair a little longer.

I use the chair in a home office situation and sometime sit for many hours straight. Was looking for a chair that was leather and durable.
The leather is good quality and seems durable, not to subtle. Upper padding and ergonomics (head & lumbar) are good, especially for taller folk. Seat is comfortable but not as padded as I would have hoped.
Assembly is easy; just takes some technique. I could agree with some of the reviews that the seat back will not latch just by pulling back into place. It requires a lifting up and pushing back at same time with weight on the chair seat. Not hard to figure out but maybe difficult for less mechanically inclined.
The chair seems designed best for a very upright posture and for me tends to have an ever so slight front pitch (not good). I addition, the reclining angle is more limited than most other chairs I’ve owned. I like to lean back when viewing video at my desk. The chair had developed some moans and groans from the arm rests but not a biggy.
All in all, the chair seems of good quality and provides a firm comfort.
Nice value on a real leather chair. Happy with quality and was a breeze putting together. Only wish that it reclined a little farther back, even after adjusting all the way. Not a big enough deal. I would still have made this purchase.
We waited far too long for delivery. It was around the Xmas season, however. Fortunately read some reviews regarding assembly - it's not hard, but not necessarily easy either. It really takes some force to snap the back of the chair into the seat. It almost looked as if it wouldn't go in - but it will if you push hard enough. Don't give up. Chair is nice and relatively comfy. My wife and I are both tall so the height adjustments are great. Like the arm rests too.
Can the arm rests be left off the chair without causing the assembly to look "unfinished" or subject it to unusual wear? It would have been nice to the back view of the chair assembled. In my intended close-quarter application, the arms and/or any protrusions from the back plane of the chair might cause damage to or be damaged by proximity objects (wall corner, desk edge etc.)numbacrunch on Nov 5, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello numbacrunch, Unfortunately the arms cannot be left off of our model B8701 chair. The arms actually screw on to the back and the seat of the chair and holds these components in place.
Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 6, 2014
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
