It's not a big issue to me. I purchased these because they seemed wide, but they're actually quite narrow in terms of the seating. I'm a smaller person so this difference does not bother me, but a more heavyset person purchasing these chairs should take note of that. The chair was easy to assemble. The texture is coarse. The color is a deep grey. Definitely gives off a mid-century feel when you see it in person. I wasn't paying attention to the fact that it reclined when I purchased it so I was delighted to see it did. It reclines at a good angle. You'll find yourself staring up at the ceiling, so propping a pillow behind you as you recline will help with that.
I'm in love with these chairs! Assembly takes about 5 minutes-so easy! VERY HIGH QUALITY. They have a high-end look to them! I couldn't be happier about these chairs! Also pictured are pillow covers and accent table, also from Overstock!
We ordered the Mervynn Mid-Century Fabric Recline Club Chair (Set of 2) in the muted green color. They are the perfect mid-century modern look for our home office / library - clean lines, slim in width without requiring a ton of room to recline; cushions are firm but comfortable. Great quality at an extremely reasonable price and very easy to assemble. Highly recommend these chairs!
I like the color of the fabric and the size of the chairs for my apartment. My husband who is Six foot one inches sits very comfortably in the reclinig chair. I would recommend these chairs to my friends
I Love my chairs! Purchased in muted green color was just as pictured,perfect for my space. Assembly was easy peazy, did on my own. Recline is smooth and use often when having my “lifetime movie”evening . Firm yet comfortable. My 23 year young daughter says “nice mom” and actually joins me in conversation more often. One arrived within 3 days the other 2 days later, so both within 5 days, which was ahead of schedule. They are narrow but I expect that in mid-century. I highly recommend!!

the mervynn mid century fabric recliner club chair set of 2 by christopher knight home are very nice. They are excellent quality for such a low price.
I purchased a pair of these chairs in muted blue for my sitting room and they are beautiful. The mid-century look is perfect. Before purchasing the chairs, I read the reviews to be sure I knew what to expect. Some people were not happy with the smaller size, but the chairs are true to the measurements provided. So, not surprising--and just the size I wanted. As many have said, the chairs are more comfortable to me if I put a pillow behind my head when I recline (I am 5'6" and of average build). Again, expected, based on the size of the chair and other reviews. Oddly, though, my 5'10" daughter just reclined with a throw pillow in the small of her back and she didn't need one behind her head. The chairs are quite firm, but not uncomfortable--It doesn't feel like you're sitting on a board or anything. You sort of get used to the firmness after sitting for a few minutes. Also, I'm not sure why anyone would have a hard time pushing the chair into either of the two reclining positions. Both chairs I received recline smoothly. I saw a review that noted trouble staying in the fully reclined position, but I have no trouble when lying back. Of course, if you bend the top of your body far enough forward, you will move the chair back to a more upright position, but that's the way the chair is supposed to work. All in all, the chairs seem quite sturdy and not wobbly, as a few people mentioned. Mine have been placed on carpet, though, so maybe that helps--I'm not sure. I'll just have to see how they hold up over time. They won't get quite as much use as our living room furniture, so I'm hoping to keep them for a while. I have to say that they're really nice looking for the price, though.
I spent hours looking at chairs for my daughter's new apartment. I needed something that would be comfortable to lounge in and yet not take up tons of space. These chairs are perfect! I ordered the pair in wheat and they are a lovely warm cream color and the fabric has a textural almost linen look. They have a wonderful mid-century modern look in her room, yet when they recline they are super comfy. My husband who is 6 ft, tall even fell asleep in one and took a long nap! I would highly recommend these chairs.

Very high quality and finish. I’m a big guy and these are surprising comfortable with deep seating. Easy to assemble and recliner feature is very nice. Highly recommended for any room in the house.
These chairs are perfect for my living room. They are easy to put together, and the color and dimensions are exactly as described online. I was looking for two mid-century modern chairs but wanted them to still have the recliner, as my living room is smaller and not dressy. Great purchase!
Easy to assemble. The chairs are a nice addition to my living room. Bonus that they recline. For the price, the chairs are a great value! I ordered the blue, love the color. Chairs were shipped quickly in 2 large boxes and arrived undamaged.
The chairs a very high quality and they are reclinable too! They are very comfortable and we love the mute blue color. We also bought the ottoman by Christopher Knight and the color matches perfectly for our bedroom decoration.
I read all the reviews on these chairs prior to purchasing, so when I received the chairs (quickly!), there were no surprises. The chairs were super easy to put together, about 5 minutes per chair. And the quality was excellent. The fabric seems durable, the chairs feel sturdy, the cushions are firm, but not hard, and definitely not soft and unsupportive. Prior customers said that they used a pillow, either to prop themselves up a bit more when reclining or to shorten the depth of the seat. Yes on both points. Really impressed with the quality and the appearance. We purchased the dark blue, perfect with our gray walls. Love the mid-century look. I did not want a really high profile chair, which is what you typically get with a recliner style chair. This was a win!
These chairs were perfect to create a little seating area in my attic space. I had a 25 inch door opening to work with and needed something to assemble in place. These were assembled in less than 10 minutes each and look beautiful in my space. I don't know if they'd hold up to everyday use - they look like they might - but I purchased for occasional use so I think they will be great.
Guys. Do it. These chairs are simply wonderful! I was nervous they would seem cheap and be uncomfortable, but they are very sturdy and I’ve already lounged in one for a half hour. They’re beautifully made, recline very easily, and I put together two on my own in minutes. I am very impressed & pleased with my purchase
I bought this set of chairs for a little under $400 and was skeptical of the quality. However, I was surprised and impressed at the quality of these chairs. They're very comfortable, especially in the recline position. I like these chairs because you can't tell they're recliners in the upright position. They look expensive and have a great mid-century modern look to it. I bought these in the dark blue and love the color. The fabric is also easy to clean and doesn't wear easily. The only complaint I have is that after a couple of months, one of the chairs did start to make a small squeaking noise when you move it. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend these chairs!
Brighter orange than expected but the chairs are nice quality. Very mid-century looking, style and fabric. They don't sit up straight but lean back slightly so I have to put a lumbar pillow behind me. A good chair for the price.
I wanted to purchase similar chairs at West Elm but they were 4x the price. They look very similar and have similar dimensions. The chairs are very deep so I recommend a throw pillow for back support when not reclining. Comfortable but not the most comfortable chair I’ve ever sat in. We don’t intend to use them as our main seating. Great value!
I had been looking everywhere for a medium sized mid century club chair. I bought two of them and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! The muted blue is really a beautiful color. The fact that they recline was a real bonus. The assembly was so easy. The chair is truly a firm but comfortable chair to sit/read in with my feet elevated. Two of the legs on one of the chairs were chipped. I called Overstock and received replacement legs from the manufacturer ASAP. I love Overstock and its great customer service.
I just love my Christopher Knight recliners in muted blue. I have a small apartment and they fit perfectly into the space I had available. My 6 month old kitten Simon has decided one is his and one is mine. Perfect! Great quality, very easy to assemble and no tools required. Very highly recommend to anyone with limited space, you will be very happy.
