This chair is space-saving, modern, understated, but elegant. It has a hard feel to it when one sits; however, it will suffice for decorative purposes. If you are looking for a chair to sit back and recline a little, this chair is not the choice. But if you are looking for rich dk. brown leather chair for decorative accent without paying outrageous prices from furniture stores, this chair is the choice. Not a chair for watching TV or for physical comfort while reading. More for sitting down while having a conversation with from someone in the room, or for waiting. Appropriate chair for an open space concept.
