Jose Antonio Rios and his family have been dedicated to the traditional art of carving and embossing leather furniture for several generations. Rios says: 'For us, embossing leather is a family tradition. Today, my family and I are proudly following the traditions, incorporating contemporary learnings and designs we are ready to face new challenges. Our work has been exhibited in a number of national and international fairs and events. We have been awarded with significant prizes and recognitions, mainly in Brazil and Argentina.'

First of all, it took a long time for this chair to arrive...when it did arrive, it was packed well enough but absolutely impossible to put together... I am experienced at putting pieces together and have successfully assembled very complicated items, but I could not assemble this simply because the holes did not lineup...at all! I should have listened to the reviews about the difficulty of putting it together and needing a mallet, but even a mallet could not help the situation! they suggest that you use wood glue, but I thought I would try to fit it together before actually placing glue...thank God I did that, otherwise I might not have been able to return it...as for the quality of the leather tooling and wood carving, etc. that was done very nicely, but overall the effect was more rustic than I care for...nevertheless, I would have kept it after waiting so long, but I can't sit in it if I can't assemble it... I again stress that I am pretty darn good at putting stuff together...maybe I just got the bad apple in the bunch...back it goes and no, thank you, I won't be going for a replacement...the only good thing about this was the customer service I received when I wanted to return it...although I got no response from the international number given for international returns (number didn't work), I just called the regular customer service at Overstock and, as usual, they were very helpful and their response was very prompt!Read More

The chair arrived very quickly to my front door (maybe two weeks). It took my husband less than hour to put together, very easy to do. It looks great!Read More
This is your great grandfather's rocking chair! Built individually in the tradition of a true craftsman. The near perfection of the carving and embossing of the leather is a testament to the artisan's skill and loving attention to detail. This item is supremely well packaged for shipment. At 64 years, I was able to assemble (and I enjoyed this project) it in less than 90 minutes. I used some wood glue and a rubber mallet to join the 8 pieces. The ooh's and aah's I have been getting tickles me (Everybody thinks it was delivered as a completed chair)! I love this solid Peruvian rocker for the unexpected 'museum quality' elegance it adds to my living room. Nobody has been able to escape this chair's powerful magnetic attraction. Everyone who has seen it had to sit on it and rock Beautiful!Read More
I was a little leary at first after reading some reviews, but I'm glad I went with my gut and bought it! It's an excellent value, it looks like an heirloom! Yes you have to put it together and all you need is a rubber mallet and wood glue! My husband put it together in less than 30 mins. If you were to buy this from a furniture store assembled you would pay 3 times the price, and the hand tooled leather is beautiful!!!! Love it!Read More
I've ordered many Novica items and I've been happy with all of them, with the exception of this rocking chair. It's pretty but it has a very strong chemical odor. The chair has been "airing out" in my entry way for other three months and I don't think the odor has dissipated at all. It smells a lot like insecticide or moth balls. I contacted Novica to inquire about the padding in the seat and verify that it does not contain moth balls, insecticides or other toxic chemicals, but I did not receive a response. I regret purchasing this item as the chemical odor makes it unusable and possibly dangerous.Read More
The craftsmanship for fine detail and smooth lines is excellent, which is great if you want to look at this chair. However, if you want to use it, all the joints pull apart easily despite gluing/re-gluing. The arm continually pops off. The spindle underneath disconnects from the seat. Consequently, it's decorative when we wanted functional. I bought this years ago from Novica. Wish there'd been reviews then, or we would have skipped it.Read More
Chair is smaller than it looks in pictures, so it is for a smaller person. Also, construction of the chair was hampered by parts that do not fit together as well as they should. This could add hours to what should only take a few minutes assembly time - just forcing the parts together. Finally, it might be a good idea to have extra glue on hand; the small tube provided is probably not going to be enough to complete the job.Read More
