This chair was easy to assemble, it looks really cool in our atrium, and it is every bit as comfy as one of those "zero gravity" chairs. When you first sit in it, and it begins to recline, it is VERY disconcerting because it feels like it is going to tip over backwards. BUT, it has little stoppers on the legs so that you won't tip over. I had to learn to trust them before I could relax fully. I am thinking I wll buy another!
