These chairs have a very short back. I am 5'9" and the back isn't as tall as my leg! They are not expensive looking fabric at all but they are very neutral. I put them in my living room. The seat is nice and deep and works well for my tall husband. Plenty of room to put an attractive lumbar pillow on the chair and leave it there even when seated. They are a good buy at this price but not a great buy!
