All the reviews say how huge it is, but nothing really prepares you for just how huge it is, lol. I got it out of the bag and let it expand for two days just like the directions said. My friend and I were horrified at how it kept growing (a la "The Blob"). Just when you think it's done expanding, it keeps getting bigger and bigger. This goes on for two whole days. The first time I sat in it I was disappointed and regretted the purchase, but after flipping and shifting the chair a few times to get the fill in the right position, you would need a gun to take that chair away from me. It is the most comfortable seating I have ever experienced. I bought the matching ottoman in the picture, which is an absolute must for the complete experience (perfect height, exact color match, etc). The only problem I have now is that I never want to get out of the chair, lol. My cats love it too. I come home and all three are nestled in the chair. I'm totally happy with it, and the red color is just beautiful.
