I did tones of online research before purchasing this chair and some of the reviewers were concerned about the comfort level of the chair. This chair is beautiful and comfortable enough for an accent chair. I bought two for my living room and couldn't be happier. They were easy enough to put together which I did before my husband returned from work. I love the look, the comfort level is acceptable and mine certainly did not have a "cheap" back as one reviewer claimed. Overall, they are great chairs for the price, especially if you need something with a contemporary look. Similar chairs elsewhere are selling for more than double the price. Get 'em while you still have a chance!!
