The chair arrived so quickly and was easy to assemble, my 13yr old son put it together on his own in no time at all. It's very heavy, solid and the whole thing feels very well made. The seat padding is very comfortable and it has a very deep seat. I was looking for an office chair for my desk, but because I have a wooden floor I didn't want a chair with wheels. This works beautifully, excellent value for the money, I'd highly recommend it.
