      I purchased this chair for my daughters room. She was absolutely thrilled with it. The chair was delivered in a timely manner with no dings or dents, was very easy to assemble. Just attach legs, stand back and admire. This is not my first purchase from Overstock. Have been pleased with each one and would not hesitate to recommend this chair .

      Option: Light Blue

      Love the style and color of this chair! Also love that it's velvet! It looks exactly like the photo. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, is because it's not comfortable unless you place a pillow against the back rest. The chair is very hard, but super cute and stylish!

      This chair is much wider than the photos imply. I even tried to get an angle that would do it justice but it is difficult to show in photos. The book in one of the photos here is huge, It's at least 12" tall and 8" wide and probably 3-4 inches thick. That should give some perspective. It isn't as deep as it is wide, so an ottoman would work well with it, but it's big enough to curl up and read, which is perfect for my purposes. The velvet is super soft and it does look and feel swanky, almost magical. Against some polished chrome or mirrors, this would really sing. The teal color is deep and beautiful with a gorgeous sheen. As others have said, the cushion is moderately stiff and the foam doesn't feel "high end". My solution for that is taking a 4" twin memory foam mattress topper and cutting it to fit this chair's cushion. If that's too soft, I'll cut both and put the mattress topper on top for softness and the foam it came with on bottom for a bit of support so I don't feel the hard frame of the seat. I did this before for a chaise and it made it feel like a cloud and more like a $1000+ piece of furniture. Overall, this is a good value and a beautiful chair to spend a lot of hours enjoying.

      The chair looks as pictured. It is easy to attach the legs. I purchased the chocolate color and the color is great, velvet is very soft. Since the fabric is so soft I expected the whole chair to be soft but it's actually quite frim. it is really a fabulous chair and perfect mid-century style

      These chairs are a huge hit in my home. They are both stylish with their design and extremely comfortable. I purchased a teal, which is stunning, and a fuchsia. The fuchsia is really purple, which matches my decor perfectly, but I did think the color had more of a maroonish look to it online. The are swanky and look expensive. Don't even hesitate on this purchase!

    • Not the quality I was expecting

      Option: Light grey

      We thought this chair was going to be perfect for our space -- we loved the style and the fabric and the color of the chair. We ordered the chair in "light grey" but unfortunately the chair was more of a light blue, not really grey at all. This was unexpected and does not go with our decor. Additionally, there are staples in the side of the chair that were coming out as soon as we opened the package. I'm not sure if we got a "bad" one since I see there are several other great reviews, but for us, the quality along with the off-color of this chair was not worth the money. We will be returning.

      I love the look of this chair in my reading nook, but I've had this chair for 7 months and haven't used it once because the seat cushion is so dang hard. It's basically just for looks.

      This chair gets a 3 for comfort, it's super hard. It's gets a 5 for looks. Really cute in my living room. I guess you can reserve this chair for guests who you don't really want to stay too long in your home, ha ha! Maybe I can all it the mother-in-law chair. No just kidding.....

      Option: Coffee

      I love this chair! The fabric is soft, easy to clean. Yes, I've had to wipe it down a bit already. My cats love the chair as well. It's a house favorite all around. I did get the brown, and love that it goes with everything. It was easy to put together, and the legs are under the bottom of the seat below the velcro cover. I'm impressed!

      These chairs are amazing for the price. I have two next to a fireplace in our bedroom. The color looks beautiful against our walls (Sherwin Williams “Repose Gray”). Plus they’re soft and have held up well to abuse from kids and pets!

      This was my first time of ordering from Overstock , so was a little wary of what would arrive . I needn't have been !!! This chair was to match a picture & another chair in my bedroom , so colour match was a concern , but I have found the colours shown in pics are very true to what you receive . Tho it is for bedroom , this chair is so comfy it would do well in a sitting room .

      These chairs feel sturdy and are a beautiful soft velvet. I ordered the dark grey which has a deep rich color. I absolutely loved this chair until by husband and daughter started sliding off of it. I think it was the combined slipperiness of their athletic shorts because I was fine in my khakis.

        It is more of a Tiffany Blue- so with just a little green/teal.

    • Q:

      "What is the weight capacity?"

      • A:

        I'm not quite certain what the actual weight capacity is, but I know it appears to be quite sturdy and I know one guest that's sat in it was at least 250 pounds. I must admit that the chair that I purchased is the dark brown model and it's definitely one of my faves in my living room. My living room is 90 percent done in Mid Century Modern and that's why I chose that particular chair and I'm very happy with it. Very posh!!!

    • Q:

      "Which one is the dark teal... I don't want the light blue one, I want the darker one shown near the fuschia... help please"

      • A:

        The other chair is a Very Dark Chocolate Brown. It's a very nice and plush Chair. When visitors come by, they always compliment me on it. I was extremely happy when they delivered it and very happy with the chair and the price as well.

        Yes, the darker blue color (between the white and cream chairs shown in pics) is the dark teal. It's very pretty!

      "The color says Green but it looks like a lighter shade of teal like sea foam. Can you clarify the color?"

      • A:

        You are correct. It does NOT look green. More teal or sea form. It's pretty true to the picture.

    • Q:

      "How can the seat depth be 19.5 but the overall depth is 39? That doesn't make sense to me. Can you clarify?"

      • A:

        I apologize for the confusion, the seat depth is approximately 19.5 inches and the overall depth is approximately 28 inches.

      • A:
