I was looking for a rocker / recliner and wasn't finding what I needed. Although this doesn't rock I came to realize that I don't miss that at all. The price was great and of course I love o.com for the free and speedy shipping (even came a day early). My husband is 5'11" 215 lbs and fits in this recliner very comfortably and loves it. It is not a tall or bulky chair, which is what I needed. Came in 2 pieces which made it very easy getting inside the house and a breeze attaching the bottom to the top. Very good deal!!!
