This is a nice, big, sturdy rocker. I was really very pleased. I ordered three...two white for my MIL and one black for my own house. The black one went together in a heartbeat [ok, like, five minutes] and is wonderful. I am a big girl and the seat is nice and roomy, and it feels very solid and comfortable. The only reason it got a 4 overall was not the chair, so much as a problem with shipping. One of the white ones was missing a piece and the back had a chip. I haven't received my parts yet, but I'm confident I will...it just lost a star for the hassle. Also, don't order chair pads til you have seen it. It really is a nice, big chair. I would order another of these chairs again.
