My teenage son is okay with these, but no one else is. Even he says, "I don't sink into them like I'd hoped too, but they look cool." I think that sums it up. They look exactly as shown ... they ARE much bigger than you can imagine (as one other reviewer mentioned). They are very firm, not cushy. They don't support the head or neck AT ALL ... we have to use pillows or blankets behind our heads to be comfortable looking at the TV. They work for teenagers, that's about it and they take up FAR too much room to be 'extra' chairs. We had hoped to have these be a row in front of typical home movie theater recliners ... hah! They are the only chairs in the room and will be for awhile. Not sure what I will do with them when I finally get the recliners.
