Overall, I think this is a great chair. It is quite confortable and all we had to do was screw the legs in. It is also quite light so while the box is large, one person could probably have carried it if not for the large dimensions. I think that the metal details looks fabulous (they are a bronze color) and the tufting on the back seat looks very classy. The minuses or warnings are as follows: it is not as large as I expected it to be (which isn't to say that the dimensions are wrong, but the photo just makes it look heftier than it is. I almost view it as a mini, adorable version of what I expected to see. That said, it very comfortably sits one.) I think the size "surpise" is more about height than width. Anyway, the material is a gray khaki material (i.e., it is a "rough" fabric, not a very soft fabric). Lastly, there are slight color thread variations here and there that are about a millimeter in size so they cannot be seen unless you're looking at it up close. At first we thought they were dirt spots but I think it's just random tiny dark pieces of thread. This last issue in why I can't give it 5 stars. But overall, I think it is a comfortable, classy looking chair. We are using it in our master bedroom. I don't think I would use it in a living room, as I think I would choose a different fabric for that type of a setting.
