I originally bought this chair in the slipper chair style...which has no arms. I love the fabric! The slipper chair has a much more comfortable seat and is good for a den or apartment but this chair is in my living room and family that visits frequently felt that they would use this chair if it had arms so I purchased this one. I am very pleased with the overall look. Assembly couldn"t be easier...no tools required! The seat is very firm and that is not the most comfortable to me but may be to you. The fabric colors are true to the pic. Again...great side chair but not something I would sit in for a night of TV viewing...that is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The price was right with the 10% discount coupon you get when you join facebook or email client for Overstock!
