Ordered two chairs on Tuesday, received on Friday. These bright red chairs are relatively light, well-boxed for shipping. Arrived in good condition. The fabric is a like a very short-cut velour; they're showing a couple of shipping wrinkles from shipping with their metal stands. I'm hoping these wrinkles ease over time. I love the proportion of these chairs, smaller than most. They make a strong mid-century modern statement as guest chairs in my office. My chairs have no problem with the hydraulics as reported in another review. Was worried that the base would look tacky or cheap based on another review's comments, but these metal bases are beautiful and shiny. BTW the red of these chairs almost exactly matches the red "Magic Shelves" from Overstock. My office looks great on a tiny budget!
