I had lots of problems with this barstool. The seat is not as deep as advertised because the back is not at the edge of the seat--it encroaches on the depth of the seat. The width is fine. The hydraulic life works fine and the chair is beautiful. But because I couldn't sit deep enough on the seat, the chair tilted forward, sliding me out. My husband (who is on the smaller side) tried out the chair and this happened to him, too. The post that holds the seat also seems set too far forward, making it less stable. I usually like things I buy from Overstock. If it didn't cost so much to ship it back, I would.
