This a great chair. The swivel is smooth the lean back is nice. With regard to the assembly, I read many comments about the arm holes not lining up.... the trick with this is to be careful not to fully tighten any part of the arm, until all screws are in place. If you tighten the top portion, you will not have the give you need to line up the bottom portion. This chair arm is designed to use a bit of tension in it for added strength, so if you keep the bolts loose until every arm bolt is in place then tight them all at the end you will have as much difficulty. Also, the bottom portion, appeared in-properly aligned. Part of the wheel socket was not fully recessed into the wood portion on several random wheel sockets. I was concerned upon assembly, that the whole chair would be crooked as a result. However, this was not the case. When all was said and done the chair came together perfectly and I am very pleased with the outcome. For the price and style, I would definitely purchase again.
Packed neatly, All hardware included, Easily assembled (when attaching arms tighten all screws gradually & evenly- as in, don't tightly screw each one, one at a time at a time), Everything aligned well, No special tools needed, Casters glide well over floor & low pile carpet, Solid look & feel, Low back, Wide seating area, Nice finish. Feels like the old time Banker's Chairs- padding only slightly changed the comfort level of sitting directly on wood bottom with no lumbar support- nothing a small lumbar pillow can't fix when sitting for long periods (only reason for my subjective 4-star rating). Great purchase!
I loved the look of this chair and the price - did not want to spend more than twice the price on the one that came from a higher end store, but I wanted the look of the chair because the desk I have is from that higher end store. I almost returned it, though, because getting the arms to line up was a serious pain and I actually chipped the finish in my struggles. I came on here and re-read the reviews and have to thank the person that wrote about NOT tightening up the three screws that secure the back until you get the arms lined up. That is contradictory to the directions, but the ONLY thing that worked. I would have saved a good 30-40 minutes of frustration if I had read that first. Other than that, it goes together easy (and once you know the trick, it's very simple.) The finish can get dinged easily as I proved, but a little black marker and nobody will ever know. I am a bit more than 200# and the chair is very comfortable. I also love that it raises as high as it does - no keyboard tray needed! All other chairs I've tried are too low for me and I thought I'd have to sit on a pillow, but this one is perfect. Rolls easily and looks great. In short, I went from frustrated to loving it in a matter of minutes.
Bought this chair for my office conference room, to replace a broken chair that was exactly the same, had it for over 15years. Once it arrived I was disappointing the arm was broken. I contacted customer care via email to get a replacement, do to a broken arm and without delay a new chair arrived a bit over a week later. Thank You Thank You
I have been looking everywhere for a bankers chair like this for my home office. The ones I would find were beyond expensive! When I came across this chair on Overstock I immediately purchased it. It is everything I was wanting plus more. The padded chair makes this not just a good looking chair but also very very comfortable. Assembly was very easy and it is a solid chair.
