Chair is very comfortable at first but I noticed a few issues with it: For one, it's upright position is too far forward, almost making you feel like it's tipping you out of the chair. I suppose this is ok if you need to sit bolt upright to type often and spend a lot of time doing it but this is a very awkward feeling to have the front of the chair noticeably lower than the back and I simply can not sit in the chair like this. Alternately, when you engage the tilt back it simply doesn't lean that far back to anything I'd remotely consider reclined. It's almost as if the tilting hardware was designed for a different seat. I usually prefer to leave my chairs unlocked so I can rock back a lot but with the awkwardness of the upright position I have to leave it locked at 3/4 to full recline to be comfortable to me. Second, the height adjustment from fully lowered to fully raised is only about 2 inches and max height is still not high enough to pull my heels off the ground when I'm only 5'8". Very odd. Third, the padding on the chair at first is nice and stiff then softens under you like a memory foam almost. Then after you've been in the chair for a while you notice the padding is TOO soft for how thick it is and you're sitting on the hard base of the chair. This is when I only weigh 160 lbs. You'll also notice this on the armrests if you rest your elbows there often. Cushy at first and hard within minutes. Although these quirks can be annoying for what you'd expect from a $**** chair, the chair is far from unusable and I've grown accustomed to the quirks and likely only pick it apart due to the extended amount of time I spend in my chair. (6-7 hours a day) The cover is very nice to touch and I far prefer it to leather. Plenty of width between the armrests so anyone bigger will still comfortably sit between them. Build quality appears high with stitching tight and straight. I intend to throw some washers under the front bolts to make the chair tilt back a little further and I'll be keeping this chair. If they'd have gone with a cheaper traditional foam with better support and set the native incline to a regular chair's positioning this would be a 5 star chair. As it is it's a competant attempt at a more luxurious chair without the $200+ price.

This is an O.K. chair. If you expect a luxury "executive" leather chair you will be disapointed. Assembly was okay and not too messy. Comfort.... well, there's better than this. I don't think the leather is real. I went to Target and I checked out their chairs, and there was these cheap plastic imitation leather chairs. It had the exact same feeling than this chair... plastic feel. My car has leather seats and the feeling is totally different. I was a little disapointed with the color. I choosed the Tan one because I wanted a clear/bright leather. Turned out this is not a white leather at all... It's more like brown. They must have put a lot of projectors on the model in the pic to make it seem nice and bright. Delivery was pretty fast. I was suprised when I received it, especially that it comes in a GIGANTIC box. Also, the picture is wrong, it looks much larger and wider on the photo, the actual chair is much thinner. If you look closer at the pic, you'll see it's been widen somehow. Especially when you look at the wheels, they don't look exactly round. Overal, I'm neather satisfied nor unsatisfied of this chair. It's just a chair that does the job, but if I knew the product, I think I would have rather spent and extra $20 bucks and get a truely 'luxury' chair... the price for this chair is wrong. It's a very cheap chair advertised as a deal for a luxury chair.

Husband very tall and heavy 285, and he loves the chair. He doesn't limp when he gets up. My groin feels better when I us it. Other chair made me lame to get up.

Comfortable. Easy to put together. I still need a small back support for long periods at the computer but that is an easy fix. Looks great.

Bought this for my son, who is a big guy: 6' 1", 250 lbs, and hard on furniture. He uses it as his desk chair and his recliner for watching TV - mostly reclining with feet up on bed. He loves it - size is good, and chair is comfortable with good support in seat and back. He tried a lot of in-store chairs, and likes this best. Don't know how it performs as a desk chair in use 8 hrs/day, but for his use, it's great. Also, leather is soft, beautiful quality!

The material is nice and gives a good simulation of leather. The backrest is well shaped. the mechanical quality of the chair is average at best. I feel a chair of this average build quality should be at a much lower price point. I expected more than I got for the price I paid.

The chair is comfy enough, and sturdy for a large man. The problem is it doesn't allow your butt to breathe. After a couple of hours it can get pretty sweaty.

SOFT leather, well made, comfortable, and affordable.. I opted for the saddle brown soft leather. Impressive for the price!

Was very nervous to open this, as the box was heavily damaged, but it was packaged well enough that it didn't matter anyway. It is pretty comfortable, but not the most comfortable chair I've sat in (back is a bit stiff for my taste, but it seems like everyone else doesn't mind that), which is the only reason I'd give it 4 stars instead of 5. My husband is very pleased with it.

I really like this chair. I'm 6'2" and about 260 lbs and it supports me in solid fashion. I can lean back, put my feet on the desk while I'm on a call and it's rock solid. It looks very nice- if it was leather it might be more "fashionable" but it fits in any office decor. It's very functional. I would definitely recommend for bigger adults.

Very nice and comfortable chair. I'm definitely the envy of the office. The only thing keeping this chair from being perfect is that it does not have an adjustable lumbar support. It is very heavy and sturdy. It took two people to put it together because it is so big and heavy. I don't regret this purchase.

I bought this chair for my husband's office. The quality of the chair is good, it's leather and easy to assemble. My only negative is that the chair does not have a high back. My husband is 6'2" and he can't kick back in it and lay his head back, the back of the chair stops at shoulder height for him.

This chair is nice if you do not want an adjustable chair. I like the material...Looks and feels like leather but wears better. Chair rocks nice. I like how it sits slightly forward...it makes it easy to type. The chair rocks nicely and can lock at any angle throughout the tilt range. The seat cushion is firm yet comfortable. I actually wish it was a a little softer. The stitching has a lot of nice detail work- no loose or crooked threading. The arms are very tall and hit my keyboard tray frequently but still HAVE NOT scuffed. The arms height is comfortable but if you can try not to use it with a keyboard tray- that way you can place the chair completely under the desk. The high back is very supportive and curved at the perfect angle. This would be a nice executive chair but doesn't work as well for really task oriented jobs. Passive ergonomics are actually quite good. I wish it was fully adjustable. With the lack of adjustability - It is more of a sit and lounge chair. A couple of these would be great at a dining room table too. Overall I am happy with the quality, look and especially the price of this high end chair. I love the tan color- much better than the basic black. It sells for twice the price everywhere else. I would definitely recommend this item if you are NOT specifically looking for an adjustable back and seat task style chair.

The nicest feature of this chair is the leather, very smooth and uniform, firm. The chair is comfortable, and gives good back support. Initially, I was disappointed that the chair back was not high enough to rest my head, but have gotten used to it.

This is one of the best products we've bought from O.

very comfortable office chair. rich dark burgundy color (darker than on my screen), works and looks better for me that way. and more important ..... It is REAL leather, not bonded, not eco leather, not faux leather. it smells like a leather, feels like a leather, looks like a leather, not like a plastic . very happy with that purchase.

We bought this chair for my father-in-law and he loves it. He says it is VERY comfortable and even naps in it. It was easy to assemble. The khaki color is great too. I believe it is faux leather, but it doesn't look cheap. Get it in khaki.

Nice chair, very comfortable...but now that we have it, bigger than we need for our den.

This is a great chair for the price, I have had it for a month now and really like it, I spend 8-12 hours a day sitting in it. I t was easy to put together took 15 minutes, I used a power screw driver. I have to admit my Herman Miller at my other office is a little more comfortable, but not $600 more so. So I would recommend this chair to anybody looking.

I had to add extra padding in the seat area. Thanx to a zipper they put in you can stuff the underside of the seat cushion. Worked great.
