I love this chair! I feel that it looks the same online as it does in person. It is lower to the ground than a regular chair but for me ,who is 5 foot 1, I find it to be perfect. Finally, a chair where my feet do not dangle! The shape of the chair does not allow me to "curl up in it" but I do find it to be comfortable. I have placed it in the corner of my bedroom so I use my laptop on it and watch tv quite often. I think the quality of it is excellent and I love the fact that it came assembled. I just had to lift it out of the box! Another great find from Overstock!
