i needed a modern looking occassional chair to fit in a small space (living room) in my apartment. i have purchased quite a bit of furniture from overstock and have been happy with everything. this chair arrived completely assembled but there were a few knicks on back legs, not enough of an issue for me to return it. the dark wood goes perfectly with my coffee table and wall unit and the twill beige fabric is neutral and also goes with my furniture. the look is perfect but i wasn't sure about keeping it because it didn't seem like a "comfy-curl up in a chair reading a book chair" the chair is comfortable to sit on and the low profile is not obstructing (i have it in front of floor to ceiling window) and it is very modern. i was uncertain but it grew on me!
