bought for my husband and he loves it. mission accomplished! the chair went together very fast, no missing pieces or wonky holes and the leather is very soft . thank you again O, for another happy transaction.
I bought this as an anniversary gift to hubby after 20 years on the job. I've Always hated anything recliner because their so big, dark and in my eyes ugly and are made for basements but I don't have on so I kept saying no when hubby hinted every time he passed one while shopping. I finally felt guilty after all these years that dad doesn't have a true "dad chair" and I was on a mission to find one that looked modern had a color and style that would blend with the living room and not a giant dark leather blob that on top of being huge it has to stay far away from anything if you want to actually recline. Good old Overstock, I spent an hour looking on site then voila, I saw this recliner and I was sold. More on a modern look, beautiful color that has No trace of yellow hues that many light colored leather things do. Although sleeker than most recliners I didn't want the very mod ones that didn't have the smooshy arms it IS supposed to be a dad chair ya know. Now for the business end of the review.. The chair only needs to be 4 inches away from the wall (or anything) so it's not in the way of the way I already have my room laid out. The electric positioning system it has operates very quickly, smoothly and quietly.. The leather is baby soft and the seams don't pucker or show any stitching and I love that the chair is on little caster wheels and they Don't scratch my new hardwoods one bit and very handy for sliding the chair to vacuum the floor. It is a chair for one and my hubby is just under 200 lbs and had plenty of room and he can even lay on his side easily and just nod off in comfort. This chair has that all over smooshy kind of feel but isn't "understuffed" either. The ottoman part of it isn't skimpy like many I'd looked at. The price can't be beat! And comes to you FULLY constructed and the only thing you have to attach the back to the chair and that part is as simple as push down and click, Done. There was no skimping on the materials on this recliner and the photo doesn't show the back of it but it looks as good in the back as in the front. Just smooth heavy leather. So if you're looking for a compromise with a recliner hater I highly recommend this to you! My hubby was out cold in under an hour in this chair giving me complete control of the T.V. :)
I bought this chair becaue we haven't been happy with the recliners available locally for a similar cost. This chair has so far, exceeded our expectations. The seat is high off the floor and the back is very tall which allows for excellent comfort for 6' tall person. The cushion is very supportive and firm on the seat and there's plenty of cushion on the back of the chair to provide lumbar support and the perfect pillow for your upper back and shoulders. The fabric is soft and seems durable. I definitely recommend Scotchguarding it. The chair didn't smell when we rec'd it so we didn't need to air it out. Assembly was easy and the arms weren't wobbly from shipping. The arms are substantially wider than I thought they would be (around 6 inches or more across?). The stain is a deeper red but not quite mahoghany. The chair has a hefty weight to it (close to 90 lbs.) and it doesn't feel like you would flip over when you fully recline. I have been able to lay almost completely flat in this chair and it's wonderful. This chair (in gray and wood stain) is vesatile and modern enough to use in a masculine or feminine interior - just chane the paint. We have a gold living room with color block rug in gray, black, red and gold and it's a perfect fit. You could go modern, arts & crafts, mission style - it would work in all. If you're not sure, try it. You can return the product to Overstock with a return UPS tag. If I had more room I would buy another one. I give this chair a 100% so far, we'll just have to see how it wears.
