Chair arrived within a week of ordering, in good condition with all parts, and was simple for one person to put together. Fabric is a checked pattern. It looks nice, should wear well, and is dark enough so it probably won't show those 'oops' stains from eating lunch at my desk. Chair is comfortable, with a medium-firm foam cushion that's about 18 inches across - about 3 inches narrower than my other two (regular desk-height) office chairs. That might be a consideration if you need more sitting area. Chair is just the right height (with extension) for my stand-up workstation, giving me the option to stand or sit as I choose throughout the day. The wheels are hard plastic, for easier rolling on carpet, so if you have a wood floor you may want to find out if you can order the softer wheels, or consider a small area rug. With my 10% off coupon, the price was better than I could find locally, and I like the low shipping fee (which you can eliminate by checking for a coupon code to get free shipping). I have had the chair for almost three weeks, and overall I am pleased with the purchase.
